The New York Jets will once again have a lot of money in 2020. Here are the top 10 free agents they should seriously consider chasing.
The New York Jets went 7-9 in 2019 and their hopes of ending their nine-year playoff drought ended in disappointment. Which means the green and white have been thinking about the offseason for a while.
In 2020 once again the Jets will have plenty of cap space available to make some moves and fill some holes. Right now the team has around $60 million in available cap space, but they can create a lot more with some roster finagling. We detailed how the team can create an additional $30 million in cap space this offseason here.
2019 has proven without a shadow of a doubt that the Jets aren’t one or two pieces away from contending for a Super Bowl championship, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get in the mix for some of the top free agents available in 2020.
As we’ve seen in history, free agency can help plug several of your roster holes and provide you flexibility in the NFL Draft. The Jets have a host of needs including but not limited too: offensive tackle, offensive guard, center, backup offensive line, edge, cornerback, among others.
If the Jets do decide to dip their toe into the free-agent waters here are the top 10 names that’ll be available at positions of need for the green and white.
