Thats 35 million in cap savings without looking at what a Revis trade could save us. It was said we were 18m over the cap coming into the season so that leaves us with about 17m plus Revis money if he is dealt to spend on bargain bin free agents to build this team . Last year with a decent QB we would of had atleast 2 more WINS putting us at 9-7. All the players listed above contributed nothing or little at all last year for the JETS so there loss wont hurt the team at all. Lets get rid of the dead weight pick up some additional draft picks and build this team from the ground up.
Here is my scenario for Jets
Trade Revis for a #1 and a 2014 conditional 3rd or 2nd round pick depending on playing time next year .
Waive Tebow, E Smith, J Smith, C. Pace, S. Pouha, B. Scott 35m cap savings
Sign RFA A. Howard OT, J Cumberland TE
M. Moore QB
C. Lynch Safety
Daniel Thomas Guard
Larry Grant MLB
Javon Ringer RB
Donnie Avery WR
Round#1 Eric Fisher OT W. Michigan
Round #1 (Revis Trade) Kuwann Short DT Purdue
Round#2 Zach Ertz TE Stanford
Round #3 Stepfan Taylor RB Stanford
Round #4 Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech
Roundv#5 Gerald Hodges, LB, Penn State
Roundv#6 Jamie Collins, DE/OLB, Southern Miss
Round #7 Quinn Sharp Kicker Oklahoma State
Revis costs the jets 9 mill in cap room to trade him. His cap hit if he remains on the jets is 6mill, so the jets actually lose 3 mill in 2013 cap dollars if he is traded.
the jets are at 141 mill now, you cut 35 mill now your at 106 mill, trade revis your at 109 mill, The rookies will be allocated 7 mill min sou your at 116 mill.
that is 5 mill left. To tender Howard and Cunningham will cost almost 4 mill.
You know have 1 mill to sign all those FA!!!! Your post seems to project that since you got 35 mill you get to sign 35 mill of other players. And this does not even take into consideration the minimum salaries which is 530,000 per player this year to fill the roster to 53 players.
