New York Jets fans woke up happy today.

Yes, you read that right. As the NFL’s official legal tampering period arrived at 12pm EST yesterday, things around the league have gone ballistic. In this rare instance, it’s been a positive outcome for the Jets thus far.

General manager Mike Maccagnan and company strutted into the first hours of the legal tampering period with the 2nd highest amount of cap space in the league, behind only the Colts. Fans anxiously awaited to see if the Jets would open their wallet from the get-go, which they have been so hesitant to do in the past.

This time has been a bit different. While the Jets certainly weren’t the first to flash the cash yesterday, they did make sure to begin their spending spree appropriately. Here’s how things have played out thus far (will be updated as legal tampering period continues):
