Starting next week and continuing over the next few months Color Rush Isaiah Crowell Jersey , I’ll be running a series of “Free Agent Profiles,” taking a look at many of the prospective free agent targets the Jets could pursue with their Scrooge’s Money Bin-sized pool of cap space.On March 11th, NFL teams are officially allowed to begin contacting and negotiating with potential free agents. Two days later, at 4:00 PM EDT on March 13th, teams are allowed to finalize deals with available players.Via Spotrac, the Jets have an estimated $98M in cap room, second most in the NFL behind the Indianapolis Colts.The catch is that the Jets only have 39 players under contract for next season, tied for the fewest in the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams. So, because of this, the Jets’ cap room number isn’t quite as large as it might appear.Even without taking that into account, you have to understand that cap space is not necessarily a difficult asset to acquire in the NFL. Very few contracts in this league are inescapable, and large portions of teams are made up of players on rookie contracts. Most NFL teams either have sufficient cap space to pursue 1-2 big ticket players, or have the flexibility to create it.Also keep in mind that many of the players listed below will not even be available. I’ll list everybody whose contract is set to expire just for fun, but the majority of the legitimately good players on this list aren’t going anywhere.The bottom line is that it is very difficult to build a team through free agency. It isn’t nearly the hotbed of talent or the quick fix fans often think it will be. The Jets will be lucky to get just one high quality starter out of this year’s free agent pool. Good players on the market are very rare and there will always be heavy competition for each one since almost all NFL teams can give themselves the space to be players on the open market.The Draft will always be the main course, and free agency will always be the side dish. Always has been that way and always will be.Nevertheless! The Jets do have a boatload of cap space and an even bigger boatload of holes to fill. So, here are some of the most notable names at the Jets’ positions of need that are set to see their current deals expire.RUNNING BACKLe’Veon Bell, Steelers (age 27 on September 1st of 2019)Jay Ajayi, Eagles (26)Mark Ingram, Saints (29)Adrian Peterson, Redskins (34)Tevin Coleman, Falcons (26)C.J.

It will likely be won by the teams who can find the most value out of unattractive options, rather than by the teams who can win melodramatic bidding wars.Who are your favorite options? Anybody you have your eye on that wasn’t listed? Adam Gase’s coaching staff will contain at least one holdover from the Todd Bowles era. Special teams coach Brant Boyer has signed an extension with the team.Boyer joined the Jets prior to the 2016 season after the firing of Bobby April. His first two years in New York were uneven, but Jets special teams grew into one of the top units in the league in 2018. The unit produced a pair of Pro Bowlers in return man Andre Roberts and kicker Jason Myers. It was one of the most surprising developments of the season as special teams were generally viewed as a weakness entering the season.After the divisive hiring of Gase, this will likely be a popular move Jets fans can agree upon.Boyer previously served as assistant special teams coach for the Indianapolis Colts from 2012 through 2015. He also played in the NFL from 1995 through 2003 for the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Cleveland Browns.
