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

3. Kenbrell Thompkins, WR

  • 2016 Cap Number: $1,1671,000
  • Cap Savings If Cut Post Jun. 1: $1,671,000

There was one split second during the 2015 NFL season that had all Jets fans on the edge of their seats with playoff dreams, only to have it snatched away that much quicker.

Kenbrell Thompkins had a chance to be the hero in Week 17 against Buffalo, but couldn’t hang on.

Now, the Jets are faced with a dilemma. Do they hang on to the 27-year old wideout they like, or let him go to save a much needed $1,671,000?

That’s a solid savings number. Anything over $1.5M is solid post Jun. 1.

Thanks to New York’s depth at the position – with the likes of Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, Devin Smith, Quincy Enunwa, and rookie Charone Peake – Thompkins could be dispensable.
