The New York Jets salary cap situation left them with around $47.649 million to play with this offseason. Now, after their initial string of major signings—Laken Tomlinson, C.J. Uzomah, Tyler Conklin, D.J. Reed, Jordan Whitehead and others—the Jets have a little over $13 million in cap space remaining.

After spending a good amount of money on free agents in 2021, general manager Joe Douglas headed into the 2022 offseason with plenty of holes to fill.

Who the Jets targeted this offseason was certainly interesting, position-wise. Adding two solid tight ends, two defensive backs and a Pro Bowl offensive lineman will certainly help the depth chart.

In terms of in-house free agents, New York elected to re-sign Braxton Berrios but opted to let Marcus Maye walk.

New York Jets salaries are a bit of a mystery at this point. It’s not that the New York Jets‘ salary cap situation is unknown, but due to general manager Joe Douglas‘s conservative free agent approach over his first two offseasons, few truly know what to expect moving forward.

C.J. Mosley‘s $17.5 million number in 2022 represents the team’s highest cap hit. Carl Lawson ranks second with a cap hit of $15.3.

The 2022 offseason will be a critical one for the Jets and their football-building plan moving forward.
