A Look to the Offseason, Part 5: Possible Cap Casualties

New, comments

One way the Jets can find cap space to resign their own free agents and sign those of other teams is to either release players or restructure their contracts. The following is a list of possible cap casualties due to either injury, ineffectiveness relative to salary, or backup status and the amount of savings the team would realize by releasing these players. They are also candidates for restructured deals to keep them in green and white and save cap space. All figures taken from nyjetscap.com. Remember the team would have to spend money to replace the roles of some of these guys.

Kris Jenkins $4.6 million

Bryan Thomas $3.7 million

Damien Woody $3.24 million

LaDainian Tomlinson $2.425 million

Jason Taylor $2.275 million

Ben Hartsock $1.65 million

Mark Brunell $1.3 million
