I can't comment on the FA signings as you don't have a cap number associated with the signing. Revis does not save any money by trading him as the remaining SB hits the cap. But you seem to be a lot more than 10 mill on FA.Which is where those cuts get you. 142mill - 35 mill in cuts = 107 mill -3mill in carryover leaves the jets with
104 mill and 17 mil of cap room, 6-7 mill will beset aside for the picks that leaves the jets with around 10 mill to spend on FA. To tag the RMA high enough to get compensation will be 1.8 mill
Then make the trade with Minnesota or Tampa Bay....either way, I think the picks are in about the right location. You could do the trade down with St. Louis if that is the case. They would still be good trade partners given their situation.
As for Revis, I don't see the numbers that way. But we'll leave that for later. Signing Matt Moore and Lawson will not cost that much, and if the contract is done right, Trufant could fit under the cap this year, while paying him more in the 2nd-3rd year of the deal (given our cap situation next year).
