Jets Create More cap Space After Re-Working Jordan Whitehead Contract
Continuing to find ways to create cap space, the Jets have re-worked the contract of safety Jordan Whitehead, creating an additional $5.3 million in room under the cap.
S Jordan Whitehead restructured his contract, creating $5.3M in cap savings, per OTC. Converted non-guaranteed base salary into signing bonus, dropping cap charge to $4.9M from $10.2M. Added 4 void years for cap purposes, meaning a $3.3M hit next yr when deal voids. #Jets

With approximately $9 million likely to go toward rookies Will McDonald and Joe Tippmann, the Jets realistically have closer to $15 million in real cap space. Consider the fact that teams like to leave themselves some breathing room during the season and that number dips to around $10-12 million.
There are still some moves the Jets could consider in the coming weeks as we mentioned right here and Jets fans shouldn’t be surprised if there are move moves coming.
