2012 Wish List: Part 3

This will be my 3rd and final wish list before free agency starts. The horrendous 2011 season is in our rearview mirror, and we can't afford to keep looking in it. There are a lot of needs to fill and very little cap room to fill them. Even with our cap room sorrows, we should still be able to put together a decent offseason. According to, Tanny can clear anywhere from $15 to $20 million in cap space for 2012. I'll mention a few of those suggested moves later. It is probably more likely that it will be closer to the $15 million side. Stay tuned after the jump to see some cap moves, and my final 2012 wish list.


  1. Rework: D’Brickashaw Ferguson - Possible Cap Savings= $4 Million
  2. Rework: Mark Sanchez - Possible Cap Savings= $4.3 Million
  3. Rework: Antonio Cromartie - Possible Cap Savings= $2 Million
  4. Cut/Resign: Eric Smith - Possible Cap Savings= $1.4 Million
  5. Cut: Wayne Hunter - Possible Cap Savings= $2.5 Million (So much for that Something will still be done)
  6. Cut: TJ Conley - Possible Cap Savings= $.4 Million
  7. Cut: Gerald Alexander - Possible Cap Savings= $.7 Million
  8. Possible Unforeseen Moves - Possible Cap Savings $2.8 Million

Total Cap Savings= $18.1 Million - This $18.1 Million will be used to sign our own free agents, draft picks, and other free agent signings.

Signing Our Own Free Agents

  1. Sione Pouha: Possible Cap Hit= $3 Million
  2. Jim Leonhard: Possible Cap Hit= $2 Million
  3. Robert Turner: Possible Cap Hit= $1 Million
  4. Marquice Cole: Possible Cap Hit= $.4 Million
  5. Aaron Maybin: Possible Cap Hit= $.6 Million
  6. Patrick Turner: Possible Cap Hit= $.8 Million

Total Cap Hit= $7.8 Million - This will leave us $10.3 Million for the draft, and other free agents. The Draft should cost us about $4.5 Million, leaving us $5.8 Million for free agents

Free Agency

  1. S Michael Griffin: Possible Cap Hit= $3 Million
  2. OT Anthony Collins: Possible Cap Hit= $.5 Million
  3. WR Braylon Edwards: Possible Cap Hit= $.8 Million
  4. K Steven Hauschka: Possible Cap Hit= $.4 Million
  5. TE Kellen Davis: Possible Cap Hit= $.5 Million

Total Cap Hit= $5.2 Million (Note: All these numbers I am throwing out there, are based on 2011 cap numbers, and may not reflect what their 2012 cap numbers will be.)
