As the Jets look to extend Quinnen Williams and eventually rework Aaron Rodgers’ deal, New York has been aggressively re-structuring contracts left and right.
And now, per The New York Post, Gang Green has recently approached C.J. Mosley about restructuring his contract. Mosley, who is one of the highest-paid linebackers in the NFL, told The Post on Tuesday that the Jets had approached his agent about reworking his deal.
“They talked to my agent. I’m not really concerned or worried about it too much,” Mosley said. “I come here to work every day, focused on getting better and trying to win a championship and being the best player I can be. Whatever happens, happens. It hasn’t been a concern.”
The Jets are seemingly looking to lower Mosley’s cap figure—$21.5 million—for the 2023 NFL season and beyond. It’s not all that surprising considering that the 30-year-0ld Mosely, who is still playing at a relatively high level, has the biggest cap figure for the Jets this season and next. Obviously, that’s likely to change with both Williams and Rodgers.
According to Over The Cap, the Jets have nearly $25 million in cap space after restructuring the deals of both Whitehead and Lawson. That figure will only likely increase if Mosely is the next player to have his contract reworked.
