The NFL's trade deadline is no longer a wasteland of silence.
In recent years, teams have become more willing to move pieces and players to improve their rosters for a potential playoff push, much like the rest of the North American sports leagues.
The 2019 trade deadline is about a week away as player movement between teams will end on Oct. 29 at 4 p.m.
In regard to the Jets (1-4), they're near the bottom of the pack in the NFL in terms of salary cap space, holding the 22nd most.
Per ESPN's NFL Insider Field Yates, General Manager Joe Douglas will have $6.1 million in salary cap space to work with at the deadline. The Colts lead the NFL in cap space with $43.5M available, well ahead of the No. 2 team, the Browns, who have $32.9M.
Moving forward, the Jets will free up a bit more cap space after the season as Spotrac currently projects them to have $49.6M in cap space next offseason -- the 18th most in the NFL.
But that's a far cry from where the Jets were entering the most recent offseason. The Jets had more than $100M in salary cap space to spend on free agents, among the most in the NFL, and used it on big name players such as running back Le'Veon Bell and linebacker CJ Mosley.
The Jets round out the NFL's Week 7 action on Monday Night Football and an upset win over the Patriots and other potential wins could sway the team to add at the deadline.
