The New York Jets are set to release left guard Laken Tomlinson, a $40 million signing in 2022,

to manage their salary cap ahead of the NFL's new year starting March 13.

With a record-high cap of $255.4 million, teams are making cuts to stay compliant.

Tomlinson's release will save the Jets $8 million but hit their cap by over $10 million.

It marks the beginning of a significant overhaul for the Jets' struggling offensive line,

following a disappointing 7-10 season.

Tomlinson's experience ensures he'll likely find a new team for the 2024 campaign.
