PK has no scrulpes. He signed a contract. No one held a gun to his head. He's a 34 year old guard who is past his prime. I'm sure the team has a plan to replace him, as he won't be in the lineup this year. I hope the team does everything possible to make his departure as uncomfortable as possible for him!

If players are sometimes asked to restructer their contracts when their production is lower than it should be, shouldn't players also be awarded when they exceed the production that their contract implies?

I would hate for the Jets to lose Pete Kendall. He is a valuable offensive lineman who is a bit underpaid when you compare the salaries and performances of other guards around the NFL. I say the Jets should cough up the dough and keep PK.

There are two run-on sentences in the transcribed quotes from Kendall. The reporter gets an "F" for grammar.
"Mike [Tannenbaum] said what I'm asking for is not unreasonable [comma] and he agrees that I'm underpaid,"
"Pete's here [comma] and he's under contract,"

I admire Pete Kendall both as a player and as a person who will stand up tall and take the heat in a loss as well as bask in the glory of a win. It seems that athletes today do not understand what committment is all about! Once you sign a contract, you are obliged to live up to it contents. It is very selfish to bring all this negative attention to the team and the staff at a time when all should be working hard for a common goal. But I guess that Pete feels that his "plight" is more important than the good of the team. I have coached football in my school district for over 20 years, and each season I emphasize every day how important it is to give yourself up for the good of the team. It is not about the individual, it never is!!! The true accomplishments in life are those resulting in the successes of others! Pete, you are one heck of a football player and a stand up guy! I love you for that!! Have the manliness to set an example for the youth of our nation. The Good Lord knows we have enough bad examples of sportsmanship from the world of professional sports!

Kendall you big baby. 34 years old, never been to a pro bowl. Good luck finding more money. You signed last year when you found no more money out there for you, and now you feel like trying to cry more? You will be poison- leave now! You are mediocre.
