While the New York Jets opened up a ton of cap space by cutting underperforming and costly veterans Bart Scott, Calvin Pace, Jason Smith and Eric Smith earlier this offseason, they still have limited financial flexibility in free agency.
With so many need positions, including quarterback, running back, wide receiver, guard and outside linebacker, it is critical that New York find appropriate and cost-efficient fits.
The Jets simply cannot afford to sign top-of-the-line free agents, so smart shopping will be highly significant to the future of the team.
Here are predictions for each of the Jets' free-agent signings this offseason.
*Current Jets unrestricted free agents are not included on this list. I expect the Jets to re-sign Yeremiah Bell, Mike DeVito, Braylon Edwards, Nick Folk and Chaz Schilens.
