New York Jets Current Projected Lineup

Even Rex would have a tough time talking up this lineup. - USA TODAY Sports

As we get ready for the offseason to begin, here is a handy reminder of where the Jets currently stand. If the season started today, this is what the starting lineup would probably look like given the current players under contract. It should give you an idea of what the Jets should target heading into free agency and the Draft. You might want to avert your eyes.

Offense

QB-Mark Sanchez

RB-Bilal Powell

FB-John Griffin

WR-Stephen Hill

WR-Santonio Holmes

TE-Konrad Reuland

T-D'Brickashaw Ferguson

G-Dennis Landolt

C-Nick Mangold

G-Caleb Schlauderaff

T-Vladimir Ducasse

Defense

DE-Quinton Coples

NT-Sione Pouha

DE-Muhammad Wilkerson

OLB-Ricky Sapp

ILB-Demario Davis

ILB-David Harris

OLB-Garrett McIntyre

CB-Darrelle Revis

CB-Antonio Cromartie

S-Josh Bush

S-Antonio Allen

Look at all of the positions where the starter could be one of the worst at the league, and consider the Jets currently have just over $8 million to make things better.

This does not include restricted free agents who seem like virtual locks to return such as Austin Howard and Jeff Cumberland. Those players will, however, cost money not currently allocated against the salary cap. It does not paint a pretty picture for 2013.

Now there are other ways the Jets will create cap space, mainly because they have to do so, but there are probably going to be spots where the worst case scenario plays out, and you see some starters this unappealing on Opening Day.
