Vernon Gholston’s 9.1 Million Sack Milestone

 Vernon Gholston is 1 sack away from kicking in a 9.1 million dollar roster bonus the jets will have the option of picking up this off season. But here’s the kicker

It will be Gholston’s FIRST career sack. The bonus also kicks in if he plays 20 percent of his possible playing time, or recovers just one fumble.

Setting the bar pretty high for the 2008 first round draft bust, Gholston is so bad that even Brian Sinkoff could happen upon the field and trigger it by accident.  But don’t think for a second he is getting that money, the Jets have an option to pick it up which they won’t. this was a built in clause so the jets could protect them selves, if he had a break out season they could of got another year out of his contract. On the other side of the coin if the season is going the way it is currently, they could just dump him in the offseason. As of right now it’s not looking good, its week 14 of his highlightless season and all he’s done is be the back seat driver in Braylon Edwards DWI.

But if he does get one sack and then gets cut he is set for life. I mean Rudy spent 4 years being a crap player who never got to take the field (out side of practice) for the Fighting Irish. 1 Sack and bam he s on Opra’s couch and Hollywood makes a movie with Vinny Vaughn and the fat kid from “Lord of the Rings”. So at least he’ll have that going for him…. Which is nice.
