New York Jets
This team may be undergoing the biggest free fall in the NFL, and the climb back to respectability is going to be a real challenge. A serious shortage of playmakers at key positions and huge salary-cap restraints have forced the Jets to gut this roster, and their ability to be active players in free agency is nonexistent.
They released veteran contributors Bart Scott, Eric Smith, Jason Smith, Calvin Pace, Sione Pouha and Josh Baker to give them salary-cap relief -- and while none of them are necessarily impact players, it hurts the depth of this roster. The issue is that the Jets' free-agent losses -- LaRon Landry (Indianapolis), Dustin Keller (Miami), Mike DeVito (Kansas City), Yeremiah Bell (Arizona) and Shonn Greene (Tennessee) -- are all players who are difference-makers not likely to be replaced. Regardless of whether New York trades Darrelle Revis, you have a roster that is near the bottom of the league in terms of talent.
