The salary cap may be a myth to some folks, but the reality is that teams still have to comply with the numbers and the Jets will have some moves to make with the salary cap.
The cap was recently officially set at a record $224.8 million per team for 2023. That’s $16.6 million more than it was in 2022 at $208.2 million.
For the Jets, taking into account their unused 2022 cap space rollover of about $3.2 million plus dead cap of $3.8 million and about $4 million in cap space for their upcoming rookie class, the Jets are currently about $3 million over the cap, per Spotrac.
The Jets will have to do some cap gymnastics before the new league year begins next month. They do have a couple of options in terms of potential cap casualties to get under the salary cap. Let’s run through some of these potential cuts.
