No you don't, you wont even have any cap space. Right now you are 20 mill over plus you will need 5 mill to sign the rookies next year.. Jason has the jets with 5.3 mill in cap space but that does not account for almost 1 mill between Hill and The fB you signed this week and it looks like landry is on placeto hit all of his 1.7 mill in incentives. So you figure the jets will carry about 2.5-3 mill over. Again these are not my numbers but Jason's.
Cutting Pace, and Scott and jason Smith free up 28 mill, that and the 3 mill carryover gets you to about 12 mill under the cap- with 5 mill of that assigned to rookies you have 7 mill in cap space and you will need to find a bunch of player to replace 2 safeties,(bell and Landry) 3 LB, (Pace, Scott and Thomas) 1 dlineman (DeVito) 3 offensive lineman (Slauson, Moore and Smith) 1 rb (greene) and 1 TE (keller)
yeah tanny is a cap genius and Belichick is cheap for not keeping Samuel and Seymour
