You have to figure $6 million of that would go to signing draft picks which leaves $21,885,825 for free agents.
$21,885,825 is a lot of money available to spend on free agents especially if you structure the contracts correctly. So we are not in bad shape at all. And there are many more aggressive maneuvers the GM could make to drop the cap even more. Don't believe the hype.
We're in agreement with what needs to be done.. I think the Cro and Revis' deals that you present are a little more team friendly than what they'd end up receiving, but otherwise, I think this plan is a nice start.
I will still say that even with the $21 million i cap room, we still have to find/resign 10/11 starters, so we're still not in as great shape as you'd think.
I do 100% agree that once we get past 2013, the Jets are in fine shape in regards to the cap.
