Jets ReSign DL Marcus Dixon


Well, one thing is for certain. Marcus Dixon’s last few days have been interesting.

Over the weekend, we learned that Marcus Dixon was waived, and the Jets claimed DL Isaako Aaitui off of waivers. Many fans were disappointed over the loss of Dixon, but it was what it was.

Yesterday, Rex Ryan left open the possibility that Dixon would be resigned. Today it happened. Aaitui was released, and Dixon was resigned, first confirmed by Dixon’s agent via Twitter.

This just seems like a very curious move by Mike Tannenbaum and company. They release Dixon and bring in a new guy. Then, bring back Dixon anyway, prior to week one, so his salary is guaranteed. Maybe it’s naive, but if they were planning on paying Marcus Dixon anyway, wouldn’t it have saved time to not cut him in the first place?

That’s just me, but it sure made for an interesting past few days for Marcus Dixon. The Jets have their own way of doing things, especially this year, that’s for sure.
