New York Jets salaries featured a salary cap situation that left them with around $47.649 million to play with this past offseason. After their initial string of major signings—Laken Tomlinson, C.J. Uzomah, Tyler Conklin, D.J. Reed, Jordan Whitehead and others—the Jets had around $4.2 million in cap space remaining.

The Jets left themselves with under $5 million of cap space to play with during the 2022 NFL regular season—which was mainly due to a result of an essential left tackle signing and veteran restructuring.

Once the Jets signed veteran left tackle Duane Brown to a two-year, $22 million deal, the team is left with under $1 million in total cap space, per Spotrac. However, restructuring C.J. Mosley’s contract freed up a bit more space for the player payroll.

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 were a bit of a mystery once the 2021 NFL season concluded. It’s not that the New York Jets‘ salary cap situation was unknown, but due to general manager Joe Douglas‘s conservative free-agent approach, especially evidenced by his first two offseasons, few truly know what to expect moving forward.

Carl Lawson’s cap hit of $15.33 tops the Jets’ salary list in 2022.

Considering the team’s youth, the salary situation will be all about the future. Having so many young drafted kids developing at the same time will hopefully lead to a great young nucleus that’s coupled with tough financial decisions down the road.

Not until the Jets officially turn the corner, and know which players are the true keepers, will the future of the cap situation and long-term investment plan truly crystalize.
