Only the unlikely scenario under which the two sides do not strike a contract agreement will keep New York Jets coach Herman Edwards from moving on to the Kansas City Chiefs in the same capacity, ESPN.com has learned.
The two teams late Thursday agreed on compensation that will free Edwards from the two years remaining on his Jets contract.
Under the agreement, the Jets will receive a fourth-round pick in the 2006 draft. The two franchises had been haggling for days.
Originally posted by geemoneyI've always liked Herm and thought he did a good job....is there a reason the Jets are letting him go so easily?
He went 4-12 this season yet wanted a contract extension despite having 2 years remaining on his contract. As for the Chiefs fans: Remember those exciting offensive games you've witnessed the past 3-4 years? Well, commit them to memory as Herm 'Plays to Win the Game' and yet finds a way to lose 13-10/16-13 with Larry Johnson running up the middle 800 times per season and Tony Gonzalez being used exclusively as a blocker.

It won't be confirmed until next week, but going by the Daily News (nydailynews.com), the new "regular-season games played overseas" experiment will begin with a Giants-Dolphins game at Wembley Stadium in London in either September or October....
