Jets create cap space by restructuring C.J. Mosley’s contract

With the start of the 2022 NFL season just days away, Mike Florio and Chris Simms pick out the teams giving off some of the worst vibes from around the league.

The Jets have opened up some significant cap space.

Per Field Yates of ESPN, New York has converted $14.88 million of linebacker C.J. Mosley’s base salary into a signing bonus to open up $11.904 million in cap room for the 2022 season.

The Jets also added two void years on the contract to spread out the hit.

Mosley signed a five-year, $85 million deal with New York in 2019. He played only two games that year with a groin injury sidelining him for most of the season. He then opted out of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But Mosley was back last year, starting 16 games. he recorded 168 total tackles with 2.0 sacks, a pair of forced fumbles, and a pair of passes defensed.
