New York Jets rank 176th in ESPN salary survey


The New York Jets rank 176th out of 333 international teams surveyed in an ESPN/SportingIntelligence report, which reveals how much teams spend on their players.

The Jets' average annual salary is $1.7 million. The franchise's total payroll is $91.9 million, which ranks 71st.

It should be noted these numbers are based on the 2014 season, when the team was criticized for its frugal approach. The Jets were among the league leaders in spending this offseason, and their current payroll for 2015 is close to $145 million. So look for a big jump in next year's survey.

The standings, too, the Jets hope.
