The New York Jets were tight up against the salary cap in 2013, and as a result, they did a lot of bargain-basement shopping on some free agents who had some question marks but could be had on a cheap one-year deal.
As a result of those deals, the Jets have a high number of unrestricted free agents this offseason, with 14 players set to hit the open market if they are not re-signed.
Between right tackle Austin Howard, tight end Jeff Cumberland, guard Willie Colon, outside linebacker Calvin Pace and others, there are plenty of big decisions waiting for the Jets in the coming weeks.
