Approx $15M+ in cap room with basic Cap Mgmnt 101 moves. The Jets haven't signed a "big splash FA" since Bart Scott but people seem to have short memories. Also jets reportedly scheduled to have $30M+ is available cap space in '14 IIRC.
Bell, Landry,Schillens were all 1yr deals.
Not knocking Idzik but everyone is in the "new guy" is great mode.
yeah, but when you trade for guys in their last year like Holmes and Cro it like signing FA, you just rented them for a year 1st. That would be like the pats saying that Talib is not a FA signing because they rented him for one year. Yes, "legally" they are not FA as there is no comp penalty.
