According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Jets have created $4.8 million in cap room by converting a portion of Franklin-Myers’ base salary into a signing bonus.
The defensive lineman joins cornerback DJ Reed, left guard Laken Tomlinson, and tight ends Tyler Conklin and CJ Uzomah in creating cap space for any future additions.
