John Idzik on the Jets’ rough cap situation Craig Thomas

The Jets are a reported $19 million over the salary cap.

What does the team’s new GM, John Idzik, think of the cap challenge that lies ahead for him?

“I never saw the cap situation here as a hindrance or anything like that,” Idzik said. “It’s something that you research, you work through (and) you evaluate, just like we evaluate our roster. We make the moves we think are best for the Jets. I’m fully confident we’ll be able to do that and we’ll have a fruitful offseason.

“Every year, as you enter into a new league year, you’re always going to, much like you do in free agency with your own players, the draft, you’re going to develop a plan for the salary cap. We’re going to develop a plan in the days to come.”
