The New York Jets had plenty of salary-cap space before signing Jason Babin, and they still have plenty of room now that he's on the team. They landed the free-agent pass-rusher with a relatively modest two-year, $3.2 million contract that includes no guaranteed money, according to ESPN Stats & Information -- a good deal for the Jets. (Note: He pocketed a $500,000 signing bonus from the Jacksonville Jaguars, who cut him last month.)

Babin
Here's the breakdown:

2014

Base salary: $1.1 million

Roster bonus: $500,000 ($31,250 per game)

Cap figure: $1.725 million

2015

Option bonus: $250,000

Base salary: $1.35 million

Note: The Jets must make a decision on whether to pick up the 2015 option by the end of the 2014 league year.
