In the space of a week, the Jets lost their two best players in defense. They traded All-Pro safety Jamal Adams to the Seahawks last Saturday, and now Mosley is gone.
Mosley, who signed a five-year, $ 85 million contract last season after five seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, missed 14 games last season with a groin injury that required surgery .
Mosley said in June he was cleared for training camp
The Jets are deeply in the domestic background. Their best returning players are Avery Williamson, Neville Hewitt, James Burgess Jr. and Patrick Onwuasor.
Mosley’s contract is paid for, which means he has another four years left with $ 56 million remaining on the deal. It now runs until 2024 instead of 2023.
This should solidify Williamson’s position with the team. He was believed to be a possible victim of the cap during the offseason, but the Jets recently said the plan was to bring him to camp.
Williamson missed last season after tearing an ACL in the preseason. On Thursday he was placed on the physically unable to perform list, but he should be able to train at some point at training camp.
