Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

Coming off a miserable season, the Jets are in a difficult offseason position. They don't project to have much cap room, at least until they start cutting some high-priced players. And whatever cap room they do create might have to be spent on the quarterback they so obviously and desperately need.

And since they'll have to replace many of the players they cut, they may not have much room to re-sign their own players. The good news, though, is coming off a miserable, 5-11 season it's not like they have a lot of unrestricted free agents they absolutely can't live without.

There are a couple worth bringing back, though. Here's a look at their list of free agents, and how hard they might try to re-sign them...

Jets special-teamer Antonio Allen said he was onside during the game-altering penalty he was called for during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

Allen was ruled offside on the Jets' kickoff with 5:42 left in the fourth quarter. On that kickoff, the Jets tackled Dolphins returner Jakeem Grant at the Miami 19 yard line.

Kenyan Drake then returned the re-kick 96 yards for a touchdown that gave the Dolphins a 27-23 lead.

You have to feel sorry for Todd Bowles and Mike Maccagnan. After the special teams unit was a liability last year and probably contributed to at least a couple of losses, the team did everything they possibly could to upgrade the special teams units. They specifically targeted special teams standouts from other teams and retained those players over others that had upside or more chance of making offensive and defensive contributions. They even replaced the coach and upgraded at a few key positions, including using a draft pick on a punter.

Every contingency was covered apart from the one element of their special teams unit that the team had always been able to rely upon in the past; the kicking game. In fact, retaining Nick Folk was further evidence that special teams were viewed as a high priority because while he beat out Ross Martin on merit, a previous regime might have been prepared to risk some rookie growing pains to save some money.

Once regarded as the best in the world and now seeking to prove himself to the doubters, once proud fan favorite Darrelle Revis saw himself badly beaten and embarrassed by a younger and more talented opponent. However, that's enough about CM Punk. How did Revis get on this week?

The big story is that AJ Green put up monster numbers and the reward card for the Revis Island Resort has now been eliminated, so your Revis Island Reward Points may no longer be valid. Actually, though? Things perhaps aren't as bad as they might have seemed.

Green had 180 yards on 12 catches, including a 54-yard touchdown with Revis trailing him to the end zone. However, other than the touchdown, he only had one other first down on a reception with Revis covering him and that was on a ridiculous catch with Revis draped all over him.

Jets fans may be worried about the team's cornerback situation, but Rex Ryan isn't. At least that's what he told reporters Friday, two days before the season opener against Oakland at MetLife Stadium.

Why is he so confident? "Just watch them practice. And in the games, I think we haven?t been perfect there, but guys are improving. I think Darrin Walls is a much better player now than he was last year (as a backup). I don?t think it?s even close. . . And in the (preseason) games, I think we haven?t been perfect there, but guys are improving."
