New York Jets: Ranking Veteran Cap Casualties To Potentially Bring In Ryan Fitzpatrick

4. Geno Smith, QB

  • 2016 Cap Number: $1,597,146
  • Cap Savings If Cut Post Jun. 1: $1,089,491

When we think of Geno Smith, we think of Ryan Fitzpatrick. That’s really all it comes down to.

With youngsters Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg in the fold, Geno, unfortunately for him, might be at the mercy of whether or not Fitz comes back to Jersey. That $1,089,491 cap savings number is elementary compared to the crowded number of four QBs (when only three are needed).

Though over a $1M can be saved, Geno is only gone if Fitzpatrick comes back.
