The Jets exercised options on defensive tackle Steve McLendon and linebacker Josh Martin, Ralph Vacchiano of sny.tv reports. The Jets will have nearly $100 million in salary cap space, per Vacchiano, making the decisions easy. McLendon is due a $3.125 million salary with a cap number of $4.25 million, and Martin is due $1.8 million in salary with a cap number of $2.1 million. The team declined its 2018 option on swing tackle Ben Ijalana, making him a free agent next month.
