It would cost the Jets more to cut LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson than to keep him.
In other words, Ferguson will be back to serve as the Jets left tackle at a 2014 base salary of $5.95 million. And thanks to restructures in back-to-back offseasons, he'll likely be there through the 2015 season as well. The remarkably durable Ferguson started all 16 games for the eighth straight year in 2013, but he slipped to 40th in Pro Football Focus' tackle grades out of 76 qualifiers.

Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson restructured his contract, freeing up $5.128 million in cap space.

Ferguson, 29, was due a salary of $7.25 million but agreed to slash it to $840,000, turning the remaining $6.41 million into a "signing" bonus that is prorated over the last five years of his contract. It's the second offseason in a row that Ferguson has restructured. Ferguson graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 6 left tackle last season, and he hasn't missed a game in his seven seasons.

Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson has agreed to convert $9 million of his $9.985 million 2012 base salary into a bonus.

The cap hit of Ferguson's new bonus will be prorated over the final six seasons of the eight-year, $73.6 million deal he signed in 2010. The move gives the Jets a whopping $7.5 million in extra cap space this offseason. Gang Green had previously been amongst the most cap-strapped teams in the league.

Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson was turned down at the Jets' facility Tuesday morning when he tried to report to the team.

Ferguson is scheduled for a league-high $750,000 workout bonus, so he had all the incentive in the world to show up for "work." Unfortunately, the Jets denied Ferguson and Jerricho Cotchery access. Cotchery wanted to use the cold tub to help rehab his surgically repaired back. Ferguson and Cotchery could conceivably sue the Jets and/or the NFL for turning them down.

Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson stands to lose $750,000 in workout bonuses in the event of an extended lockout.

At least 50 NFL players have six-figure bonuses in jeopardy if they don't participate in 85-90 percent of the workouts, which grows more and more unlikely by the week. It's going to be challenging for the players to stand united behind De Smith's litigation route when pockets are receiving direct hits. It's not helping, of course, that the inability to keep players like Adrian Peterson and Rashard Mendenhall on point is damaging P.R. and overshadowing the NFLPA's true message.

Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson's reported six-year, $60 million extension only guarantees him one year and $5.3225 million, according to's Mike Florio.

The rest of the contract doesn't become guaranteed unless Ferguson plays effectively and without serious injury in 2010. Ferguson's base salaries for 2011 and beyond are guaranteed only for skill -- not for injury. He will be guaranteed $22 million if he avoids injury in 2010 and 2011, but the real contract numbers aren't close to what was initially reported.

Jets agreed to terms with LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson on a six-year, $60 million extension.

The deal includes $34.8 million in guarantees. Already under contract for two more years, Ferguson will receive $73.6 million over the next eight years, topping Jake Long's five-year, $57 million deal. Due to his relatively high 2009 salary ($6 million), the "30 percent" rule was not a significant detriment to Ferguson's extension. The Jets will now turn their attention to restructuring Darrelle Revis' contract, with Nick Mangold and David Harris on the back burner.

The player rep for D'Brickashaw Ferguson disputes a report that his client is on track to sign a long-term deal by training camp.

Ferguson's agent called the report "completely untrue," saying the sides had yet to go beyond preliminary talks. Of the Jets' "Core Four," Ferguson still seems likely to sign first, if only because of the 30 percent rule. He's looking for Jake Long money (five years, $57M), and his $6 million salary in 2009 is a good building block.

The Jets are reportedly closer to a long-term deal with LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson than commonly believed.

"Barring unexpected complications," the sides are expected to have a deal in place by training camp. While their loyalty and commitment to paying their stars has been questioned, the Jets are giving a serious effort to lock up their nucleus this summer.

The Jets have reportedly no had discussions with LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson about a contract extension.

It seems like everyone on the Jets wants a new deal, so they have to be happy that Ferguson isn't making a stink. The Pro Bowl replacement is entering the fifth year of his six-year rookie deal and is set to make $3.1225 million in 2010. Next season, the club has an option on Ferguson for $10 million.

Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson cleared up misconceptions Thursday that his recent changing of agents was about unhappiness over his contract.

"My biggest thing was I changed agents because of a relationship issue," Ferguson said. "That was basically it. I think people are inferring that [it was a contract issue] based on the fact that I changed agents."

Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson is reportedly in search of a new contract after recently changing agents.

Ferguson was credited with six sacks allowed last year, although none came in New York's final seven games, including the postseason. The No. 4 overall pick in 2006, Ferguson is due a $3.1225 million base salary in 2010.

Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson has been added to the AFC's Pro Bowl roster as an injury replacement for Dolphins LT Jake Long.

Ferguson is part of a line that led the NFL in regular season rushing. The 26-year-old and former top-four overall pick has officially made good on his promise after "guaranteeing" in training camp that he'd make the Pro Bowl.

Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson guarantees he will make the Pro Bowl in 2009.

Then he'll have to improve his run blocking. New York was the NFL's least effective team running off left tackle in 2008. D'Brick did only allow four sacks all season, but the 2006 No. 4 overall pick isn't a complete player yet.

The Jets were the NFL's least effective team running off left tackle in 2008.

While Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson isn't exactly built to be a road grater, he clearly has lots of room for improvement in the run game. D'Brick is effective in pass pro, but hasn't lived up to his fourth overall pick billing from 2006.
