    So how much cap room do the Jets now have?

    Now that the Jets have released Pouha and restructured Holmes how much cap room do they now have? and who might they be targeting with this newfound cap room? As time goes on it becomes more of a buyers market so maybe the Jets will get a solid player or two. Miami making the big splash right now in free agency but they are paying the big bucks that we well know doesn't often work out. So how much cap room do the Jets have to play with?

    All depends on the Holmes restructure which I am VERY interested to see once it is released somewhere

    From what I can make out about 10 mill after signing to rookies if the structured the Holmes deal the way I believe they did. But hey only have about 35 guys signed

    Ive heard the Jets now have around 15 million - wow - that seems a lot for supposedly the team in the worst cap situation. They can actually be players in free agency if they want or even resign Revis and give all their cap space away. Maybe just sign a half decent corner to fill Revis spot when he leaves.

    Yes, however they cut half their starters.

    QB - Sanchez
    RB
    FB - Connor (for argument's sake)
    TE -
    WR - Holmes
    WR - Hill
    LT - Brick
    LG -
    C - Mangold
    RG -
    RT - Howard

    LE - Wilkerson
    NT - Ellis
    RE - Coples
    LOLB -
    ILB - Harris
    ILB -
    ROLB -
    CB - Cromartie
    CB - Revis???????
    S -
    S -

    I understand we have a lot of players who can step in to certain positions, but we gutted the team.

    Prepare for disappointment this upcoming season.

    Hilliard would be more likely than Connor at FB, but I think he's still a FA. I'd pencil in Davis at ILB beside Harris ... if the season were starting tomorrow McIntyre would be one OLB. Not saying he's great but wouldn't be much worse than what we had last year.

    Still a lot of holes to fill ... better draft real good this year!

    Maybe cleaning up early for 2014? Personally I don't care about this year, until Sanchez is gone we are not winning.. I'm for getting a head start getting under cap for 2014, clear more dead weight next march and go strong in FA and drop.. Don't see point in scrambling for ave players now to better our record to near .500 so we are further away from possibly drafting a real qb at top of draft next yr.

    Don't know why, but I'm excited to see what the team will look like week 1.

    @MMehtaNYDN: Jets recent restructures (Cromartie & Holmes) and releases (Po'uha) put them about $15+ million under the 2013 cap right now. #nyj

    Still looks better then last year IMO. Arguably already upgraded QB, ILB, RB. Soon to come upgrades for RB, OLB, SS LG, and FB. It seriously doesn't matter who they sign at most of these spots we upgrade. Only real hits so far FS, RG, and maybe TE. No huge losses. Even if they trade Revis it is not like he played last year. We are bound to have a better team.

    So you think Garrard will be the week 1 starter after a 2-year sabbatical and you want to be taken seriously here. Okaaaaaaay.

    Unless Garrard is in a wheelchair (not impossible), I'd be shocked if Sanchez beat him out in training camp.

    Unless the fix is in for Rex's boy (also not impossible).

    He is the only QB we have right now so hard to say if he starts. Ask me again after the draft. Either way it is an upgrade

    I dont think the same way. Maybe because I'm always optimistic about my team but I think with a good draft and I'm going out on a limb to say "decent" qb play, this team will be better than alot of people think. Injuries will always come into play though and if we are plagued like last year then we can just forget about it

    Add the $1m we get back from the eventual Tebow release and that's $16m.
