So we have $19MM in dead money and along with another $99MM on the books? How does that equate to Jason's supposed $8.5MM in cap space?
we should be close to 7-8 mil under?...
Maybe he is even counting after we cut Tebow who knows until the draft is over.

John Clayton says we have $8.3MM
The way the veteran minimum deal works is that the player gets to earn whatever the minimum salary is for a player of his experience but the cap charge is only equal to that of a 2nd year player. The most bonus money he can receive this year is $65K so a player on the vet minimum counts $620K against the cap in most cases.
The Jets should be around 8.4 million in cap room. The top 51 is just under 99 million and the team has $19 million in dead money. The Jets adjusted cap is $126. 4 million. Our rookie pool is now estimated to be $7.438 million. 5 Players will replace players already under contract in the top 51 and 3 will only have prorated money count so the net space needed to sign all 8 is about $3.823 million.
I think Hilliards in his 5th year as a pro.Ok yeah I see a few listed on the other link. It is already subtracted on 3 guys. Hilliard really? Didnt think he was in the league that long.
Having around 8.4 is good because (I'm pretty sure) we save 1 million in cap space by cutting Tebow. After rookies are signed we should be looking at $3-4mil left I think.
