With free agency upon us, it is a good time to take stock of where the Jets stand against the salary cap.
The good people at Over The Cap keep track of such things. Their current count has the Jets with just under $90 million, most in the NFL.
The top five:
- Jets $89.8 million
- Browns $82.7 million
- Colts $72.1 million
- Buccaneers $71.1 million
- 49ers $70.0 million
The Browns had owned the most cap space, but they made a flourish of trades over the last few days that will eat up that room.
The Jets will likely bring their own available space down in a few days as they look to upgrade a roster largely barren in talent.
One thing that is clear is we will have a number of new Jets joining the team in the next few days.
