It's the dawn of a new era for the New York Jets. Robert Saleh was named the new head coach, the team has the second overall draft pick and they currently have the second-most projected cap space, with over $75.5 million, according to Spotrac. This means they will be able to be aggressive in free agency. They may be aggressive with their own roster as well, as they look to turn the team around in a hurry.
These are three Jets players who won't be on the roster next season.
1. Sam Darnold, QB
A big decision for the new Jets regime will be figuring out the quarterback position. Do they stick with Sam Darnold, trade for a starter or draft a quarterback? With two of the three choices likely leading to Darnold being shipped out of town, there's a solid chance Darnold gets a fresh start somewhere else. It seems like the best thing for all parties involved.
2. Chuma Edoga, RT
Chuma Edoga is the backup right tackle, behind George Fant. He has had opportunities on the field, but he has not impressed. Still, teams inquired about the 2019 third-round draft pick in the past, and there still may be a market for him. Even if it's a late-round pick, the Jets may pull the trigger to get as many picks as possible.
3. Henry Anderson, DE
Henry Anderson could be straight up cut by the Jets. If he is kept, the team would owe him $9.5 million this season. Cutting him would save the team $8.2 million, which seems to be a move worth making. Anderson started eight of 16 games this season, totaling just three quarterback hits and 0.5 sacks. This comes after totaling just one sack the season prior. He's overpaid and the money would be better used elsewhere.
