5 Ways for the Jets to save a million

This is a year without a salary cap, but there are some players who may not make the roster because of a combination of salary and ability. We all have a boss, Mike Tannenbaum has a boss, saving a little salary from an owners perspective is not a bad thing unless it prevents you from winning a Superbowl.

1. Kellen Clemens QB.. Cutting Kellen saves you 1.2, if he is not number two it is hard to justify him being around

2. Drew Coleman CB..  Drew is your fifth CB, saves you another 1.2. Marquice Cole or Brian Jackson are cheaper alternatives. Rex seems to like small corners and Coleman has been a big contributor on Special teams, but the guy gets toasted in coverage.

3. Eric Smith or James IhedigboSafety..The safety position is a little crowded on the Jets. UNDFA Donavan Warren seems to be a threat, offering a different skill set, being more of a cover safety in this pass happy league. James and Eric big contributors on specials and big hitters in the secondary, this IMO would be a huge mistake but James and Eric are the same guy and how much is a reserve safety worth ? Save another 1.2

4. Ben Hartsock TE or Tony Richardson FB.. You wonder how long Tony can go and if a younger player in John Conner the heir apparent can take his place. Hartsock has less of a threat  in Matthew Mulligan as a blocking TE, but Mulligan is closer to a complete TE offering more of a receiving threat. In this offense the Te has to block and Hartsock has a huge edge

5.Shaun Ellis DE... This would be almost criminal, but Shaun is in the last year of contact which pays over 3.3. Ellis was effective last year, is the best pass rushing lineman the Jets have, plays DE, DT and NT, has been a team player, and is an all time Jet. This is the NFL, if a DE is available for 2.3 is younger and perceived better, Shaun gets cut in a heartbeat, no loyalty.
