The Jets made their push during the 2023 season to try and strike in what they believed what a championship window with their young and strong roster, specifically on the defensive side of the football. They’ll tell you this wasn’t an all-in for 2023, but at least a two-year window. They needed that extra time after quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with an Achilles tear four snaps into his Jets debut and the Jets having to turn back to Zach Wilson after they spent all offseason courting Rodgers to replace Wilson.
The Jets sit at 4-5 just past the midway point of the season and the offense has been stalling again, to say the least. The Jets still have hopes for a playoff spot in 2023, but may also have one eye on the 2024 season with a healthy Rodgers. They’ll also have their first-round pick since Rodgers won’t play enough snaps to meet the 65% condition of the trade with the Packers.
As of now, the Jets have about $6.5 million in cap space for this season and about $30 million for 2024.
Let’s put one eye to the future ourselves and take a look at the Jets’ salary-cap situation for 2024. All numbers and cap hits are courtesy of Over the Cap.
