The only way to free up additional cap space is to trade Wilkerson and/or restructure Dabrickashaw. We need just under 5m to sign the draftees, so as it stands now the Jets need 8m cap space to break even. I can't see them signing Fitz and keeping Wilkerson. Trading Wilks and also restructuring Brick is probably the only way to make it work. I've heard Fitz wants 15-16m and the Jets offered 7-8. Fitz perceived value will go down to around 12-13, so the Jets will probably meet in the middle around 10-11, which means they will need around 20m in cap space, just to sign Fitz and break even, leaving us with multiple holes, including a substantially weaker defensive line. I hope Maccagan has a plan to free up space.
I think trading Wilkerson is his only real option. A lot of talk that teams aren't going to be offering a lot knowing this.
