Breaking Down the Jets 2009 Salary Cap

ESPN’s Insider section just did a full-scale blowout about the salary cap for each and every team around the league. Here’s what they had to say on the Jets:

2009 Salary Cap: $129,278,924
Player with Highest Cap Number: CB Darrelle Revis ($7,961,216; 6.2% of cap)
Highest Cap Number for a Player No Longer with Club: DE Kenyon Coleman ($4,001,765; 3.1% of cap, 11th on club)
Player Who Has to Live Up to Cap Number: LB Vernon Gholston ($4,476,240; 3.5% of cap, 10th on club)

When the Jets drafted Gholston with the sixth overall pick of the 2008 draft, and gave him $21 million guaranteed, no one would have expected, short of an injury, for Gholston to finish with only four total tackles on the season. Needless to say, from an expectations standpoint, there’s a lot of catching up for the second-year player, and early word out of Jets training camp is that no headway is being made.
