None Woody Johnson's desire to slash pay roll prompted moves to cut Jets vets David Harris and Eric Decker

Jets fans blindsided by the team's cutting spree on Monday need to look no further than the billionaire bossman to find the answer to their questions.

My understanding is that the Jets’ decision to part ways with respected veterans David Harris and Eric Decker was heavily influenced by Woody Johnson's desire to reduce payroll during a rebuilding season. And by "heavily influenced," I mean that the owner's desire to save more money this year prompted the team to say goodbye to the linebacker and wide receiver. The organization slashed $13.75 million in cash payroll.

Asked Monday whether the decision to cut Harris and impending decision to cut Decker (assuming no trade is made) were financially motivated, general manager Mike Maccagnan simply said: "No, I think there's a lot of things that go into these decisions. I think we've been focused on trying to create opportunities for a lot of players on this roster. We have some very competitive positions and we'll see how it unfolds going forward."

The truth, however, is that these two moves were, indeed, solely motivated by the owner's decision to slash payroll.
