Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan was hired a year ago and given the enviable position of a lot of cap space. He used that to sign Darrelle Revis to a blockbuster deal, but he also made a couple of smart trades, adding Brandon Marshall and Ryan Fitzpatrick for a 2015 5th and 2016 6th round pick, respectively (while also getting back a 7th round pick later traded for Zac Stacy). There were six veterans who switched teams between 2014 and 2015 that wound up producing double digit points of AV last year; half of those were acquired by the Jets.

The table below shows the 44 veterans who changed teams in 2015 and produced at least 7 points of AV: And, courtesy of Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap, the table has been revised to include each player’s 2015 cap hit and $/AV:

    I realize Approximate Value is.. well, approximate… but it feels rather telling that Ndamukong Suh, who received the monster of all defensive contracts before free agency even officially started, and Terrance Knighton, who was referred to as a nice value contract signed late in free agency, generated about the same amount of value for their respective teams.

    Note: I am a Redskins fan.
