Mike Tannenbaum’s expression may continue to be as pictured (right), due to the reports on the salary cap upcoming over the next few years. For a full report, take a look at John Clayton’s report from the owner’s meetings.

Despite soaring revenues, if the report stays true, the increase to the salary cap may only be $1 million by the year 2015, and the current salary cap only stands at $120.6 million. According to Clayton, the salary caps in 2014 and 2015 are negotiable.

Should they stay the same, this will be a problem for Mike Tannenbaum and the Jets. With some large contracts on the books, most of Darrelle Revis, who has 2 years left and is in line for the highest defensive player’s contract ever, the Jets won’t have a lot of future manuverability.

It makes this April loom very large.
