The Jets were a mess last season and at times they seemed out of control -- as dysfunctional as they were bad. Through it all, though, Todd Bowles did his best to remain a steady voice and presence, publicly unmoved by the chaos that seemed to be swirling around him.

The Giants don't have a ton of salary cap room. In fact, at the moment they really don't have any. So even if they make some cuts or restructure some contracts, they're likely to shop mostly in free agency's bargain bin.

The thing about the bargain bin, though, is that you can sometimes find real bargains -- valuable players that can actually help, for a price that is pretty low. So here are five still-available players the Giants might want to consider -- if, of course, their price is right:

RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) - He's 30 years old and his body has taken a beating over the years, so even though he's coming off his first 1,000-yard season since 2010 (1,161 yards), no one thinks he's a No. 1 back anymore. What he is is a 250-pound battering ram and a terrific goal-line back who had 18 touchdowns last season. The Giants, who have been a disaster in goal-line and short-yardage rushing in recent years, sure could use that kind of power in the backfield, and he could be the ideal complement to the smaller, speedier, shiftier, Paul Perkins...

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV:

Players always talk about the non-financial intangibles when they enter free agency, about their desire to find the right situation and play for a winner. But the truth about free agency often is this: Money talks.

Still, the real top players in the market sometimes have choices to make when the money is close, and that's where things could get interesting for Mike Maccagnan and the New York Jets. He's got the money to spend to begin the makeover his roster (approximately $37 million in cap space and maybe more to come). But if his top targets end up with multiple, lucrative options, does the Jets GM have the rest of the package to lure those players to New York?

It could be an interesting question right off the bat with a report already emerging that the Chicago Bears are ready to battle the Jets for free-agent quarterback Mike Glennon. Not that the Bears are in great shape -- they're coming off a 3-13 season and have missed the playoffs the last six seasons just like the Jets. Maybe Glennon, or any player, could make the argument that the Jets are the more attractive spot between the two.

GEICO SportsNite: Bowles in Indy 00:02:06
Jets head coach Todd Bowles talks about the team's decision to release Darrelle Revis and how the team plans to use FA to find a QB.

Ralph Vacchiano Facebook | Twitter | Archive

INDIANAPOLIS - It's hard to imagine a worse spot for Todd Bowles. The glow of his first-year success evaporated in last year's 5-11 disaster. His job could be on the line this season, for real, with no promises from his owner of the future. His team has no quarterback. It's shedding many of its past leaders.

In other words, Bowles might very well be in a win-now position as his team is in the midst of a total rebuild.

The Jets began the reshaping of their roster and the first of what could be many moves to help clear salary cap space on Thursday as they released two veterans -- kicker Nick Folk and right tackle Breno Giacomini.

The moves clear about $7.5 million in salary cap space and leave the Jets somewhere around $10 million under the projected NFL salary cap. They were actually over until last week, when they declined to pick up the option on veteran left tackle Ryan Clady.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

There is no doubt about what the Giants' biggest offseason need is. They need to figure out a way to fix their offensive line.

With right tackle Marshall Newhouse heading to free agency (and not likely to return -- at least not as a starter) and left tackle Ereck Flowers having struggled so much the Giants are pondering their options with him, they could be in the market for two tackles. It seems a lock that they will try to go after at least one.

But which one? That's the problem. Neither the free agent market nor the top of the NFL draft are loaded with promising tackles. The best ones in free agency are either older, damaged, or play predominantly on the right side.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV: 

The Jets had such high hopes for their offensive line when they acquired left tackle Ryan Clady from the Broncos last April. But the experiment is over after less than a year.

The Jets have informed Clady's agent that they do not intend to pick up his option for the 2017 season, according to an NFL source. New York had until Wednesday to make a decision before the team would owe him a $1 million roster bonus. Clady also was scheduled to make a non-guaranteed salary of $10 million this year.

The NFL offseason may be off to a slow start, but things are surely about to pick up with cuts and contract restructures on their way, and with the scouting combine just two weeks away.

With that in mind, here is our weekly look at some of the biggest questions facing the Jets, what's new about them, where they stand on finding an answer, and if any of the issues have changed.

1. Who is their quarterback?

They of course haven't answered this yet, but they did answer who'll be coaching the quarterbacks: new offensive coordinator John Morton and new quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates. Neither has an extensive resume at their current positions -- or really working with quarterbacks -- which is interesting if they're going to be entrusted with developing a young quarterback.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

Now that the Super Bowl is over, the New York Jets can begin cleaning up the wreckage from their 5-11 season and start yet another rebuilding project. Despite being on the cusp of the playoffs a year ago, they seem farther away than ever now.

With that in mind, here are some of the biggest questions the Jets must answer this offseason. We'll check back in each week to see how they're doing, whether any of the questions have been answered, and whether any have changed:

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

It still seems unlikely that Ryan Clady will return as the Jets' left tackle next season, but the team has bought itself a little extra time to make that decision.

The Jets and Clady recently restructured his contract, eliminating a $2.5 million roster bonus he was due next month and rolling that non-guaranteed amount into his 2017 salary, which is now scheduled to be $10 million, according to NFLPA records. 

It's a minor tweak, as first reported by ESPN, but it means the Jets have a little extra time to evaluate Clady's health and their own roster and salary cap situation.

The Jets dismal 5-11 season left them heading into an offseason of uncertainty with a high draft pick and seemingly little hope. At the moment, there are far more questions about their plans and the future than there are acceptable answers.

But since you asked, I'll give it a shot anyway in the first offseason edition of my SNY Jets Twitter mailbag. Part I ran on Wednesday. Here, as promised, is Part II:

Brian Winters would've been one of the better guards on the free agent market and he could've cashed in even bigger than the four-year, $29 million deal he got from the Jets. 

But instead of looking for more money and maybe a better situation, the 25-year-old Winters decided to stay put because he believes that, despite the misery of the Jets' 5-11 season, there are much better days for the franchise ahead.

We've looked at some of the roster decisions facing the Jets as we head into the offseason over the past few weeks. Readers overwhelmingly voted to keep Eric DeckerNick Mangold and David Harris and to dump Darrelle Revis, but were torn on Brandon Marshall and Sheldon Richardson. How about some of the other decisions facing the front office and coaching staff?

Of course young players like Leonard Williams and Darron Lee or players that performed well in 2016 like James Carpenter and Bilal Powell will return in 2017, but that about those whose performance was more disappointing?

Jets head coach Todd Bowles spoke to the media following Wednesday's practice. Here is what we learned...

  • Ryan Clady has a torn rotator cuff and had been "basically playing out there with one arm. Ben Ijalana will start in his place on Sunday.
  • LB Bruce Carter and CB Marcus Williams are unlikely to play Sunday.

The Jets have activated injured WR Devin Smith off the PUP list, placed T Ryan Clady on IR and waived DE Jarvis Jenkins, the team announced Wednesday. 

Smith, who tore his ACL in Week 14 against the Titans last year, had 115 receiving yards and one touchdown during his rookie season.

New Jets left tackle Ryan Clady is working in team drills during today's Organized Team Activities, via ProFootballTalk.

Clady missed the entire 2015 season due to an ACL tear suffered in the preseason. Before that, Clady has started in 98 NFL games, earned four Pro Bowl appearances, two First-team All-Pros and a Second-team all Pro. However, he has also only played in 18 of the last 48 games due to injury.

Clady was traded to the Jets along with a seventh-round pick for a fifth-round pick in April. He signed a one year, $6 million dollar contract with $3 million guaranteed and a $7.5M team option for next year plus a $2.5M bonus based on playing time.

Clady is expected by the organization to replace longtime left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson, who famously started at the position for the Jets for 10 seasons without missing a single start.

For the second straight year, the Giants may find themselves in a position in which the salary cap will be a major hindrance in trying to improve the roster.

Of course, the team had many of the pieces this year it needed for success but just lacked the consistency needed for a sustained run.

There are some intriguing free agents out there that could seriously help the Giants retool heading into 2013. But whether or not they will fit into the Giants? price range remains to be seen.

The season is over, and the Giants have no one to blame for missing the playoffs than themselves.

Therefore, looking at how this team will retool heading into 2013, it may be difficult for a personnel standpoint to determine who stays and who goes.

If everyone played to their potential consistently, the Giants would be preparing for a playoff matchup today, not cleaning out their lockers.
