C.J. Mosley is the New York Jets‘ defensive leader.

As Robert Saleh’s MIKE, the veteran linebacker calls the on-field defense for the New York Jets. And it’s his veteran experience that helps all around him.

Signing a massive five-year deal with $85 million and $51 million guaranteed back in 2019, the man who has five Pro Bowl nods on his mantle continues to play at a high level. Unfortunately for the Jets, it hasn’t always been so clean.

After an injury-riddled first year that limited him to just two games, Mosley decided to not play during the COVID-19 season of 2020. This froze his contract in a way that pushed everything back a year.

In spite of many opinions leaning on the side that New York would cut the veteran (and his bloated cap hit), he’s still in town while sporting the team’s greatest cap number for 2023 ($21.476 million).

The good news is that Mosley seems to be back, as his 128-tackle campaign in 2022 should bleed over into 2023 with even more talent around him. And, oh yeah, he also now has Aaron Rodgers leading his team’s offense.

C.J. Mosley racks up 7 tackles vs. Bills

While he didn’t lead the New York Jets in tackles—as he often does—C.J. Mosley led an impressive defensive unit against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.

C.J. Mosley’s stats are all about the tackles.

When Mosley opted out of the 2020 season, New York Jets fans didn’t know what to think. It meant that the team’s free-agent defensive prize of 2019 would have played in just two games over his first two seasons in New Jersey.

However, Mosley has since racked up 168 and 158-tackle seasons over the last two years. The 2022 season featured Mosley making his fifth Pro Bowl team.

Yeah, let’s be honest: The C.J. Mosley salary situation is pretty brutal.

While there’s no question that his veteran leadership is still valuable, there’s no way that the 31-year-old linebacker should have the highest cap hit on the New York Jets roster ($21.476 million).
