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...

With issues still to address at quarterback, offensive line and linebacker to name a few the Jets are not done in free agency, but the simple fact is that for all intents other than finding some middle ground in the Ryan Fitzpatrick saga, this team's free agency is pretty much done.

Other than a few more signings and then some of the early round picks from the draft, the Jets can't count on undrafted free agents or maybe even some June free agent additions to provide much more than the roster already has.

I figured it might be a good exercise as we prepare for the draft to go spot-by-spot on the depth chart as it now stands to look at the strengths and weaknesses of the current 2016 Jets roster.

Former Jets special teams coach and SNY analyst Mike Westhoff is out at the NFL Combine this week. He answered a few questions about the combine process and what the Jets need to focus on heading into the 2016 season…

On the Jets cutting Antonio Cromartie:

"It probably has as much to do with the financial end of it, more than anything else. I hope that he would be a guy that they can work on a new contract with. I think he has some mileage left.
