Trade Revis for 1,2
Trade from 9 to 18ish for an extra second
If a player isn't on the roster, assume cut/not retained/traded in minor deal
QB: Sanchez, Moore, McElroy,
RB: Bernard (Revis 1st), Powell, McKnight
FB: Lonnie Pryor (5th)
WR: Edwards, Austin (trade back 2nd), Kerley, Hill
TE: Eifert/Ertz (NYJ 2nd), Cumberland
RG: Jones (Alabama) or Warford (Revis 2nd)
I would like to see us move towards a 4-3 to take full advantage of Coples/Wilk, and to ease our LB woes.
LE: Ansah (trade down 1st)
LOLB:Chase Thomas (3rd)
FS: Tyrann Mathieu (4th), JAG/Bush (if Mathieu can't make conversion)
I think this roster is extremely solid, and leaves only two long term holes in the roster. QB (obviously) and MLB. Possibly RT depending on how Howard performs this year.
Harris is too slow and lacks coverage ability to be that true 4-3 MLB, but Rome wasn't built in a day. We replace him and Sanchez next year.
EDIT: Would also leave a hole at DE. Looks like we'll be taking Clowney or Bridgewater next year ;)

Giving Holmes a paycut, or flat out cutting him, is an option.
Cutting him frees up 1mil, plus whatever another team signs him for offsets.
So if a team signs him to 3mil, it saves the Jets 4mil in space. That is leverage to forcing a bit of a restructure/paycut (or they cut him).
Pouha will be cut if he doesn't restructure. I expect that to free approx 2.25mil..
Mangold upcoming 3mil roster bonus can be prorated across his remaining contract years. That frees up 2.4 mil.
Finally, i would not be surprised at all to see someone traded.
Cro in particular has a 10.75 mil cap hit in both 2013 and 2014, most of which is freed up by trading. Note, trading Revis frees up no cap room in 2013 (in fact it incurs more as pro-rated bonus gets accelerated to 2013 cap number.
Making these moves alone creates a lot of breathing room w/o mortgaging the future.
It's a real tough spot for Idzik in 2013, but there some things which can be done to help it.
