It's always awkward when you double and triple down on things but people who know how things actually work see that you're wrong and when they try to point it out to you, you just tell them that they are wrong.

I think the key confusion here is that when you are an LTIR team you don't accrue capspace like you normally would, that is the penalty for being in LTIR. I didn't know much about it until the Jets actually became an LTIR team, so I'm pretty sure this is where the confusion is. Even when you waive 3 guys and save $2,300,000 worth of players, you're still over the cap. Trying to get the extra $1.3M off by going with a 22 or 21 person roster does cause problems whenever there is an injury/illness as you don't have room to call guys up unless you LTIR the person that got hurt.

So you could maybe tinker with the roster some more to become compliant, but additional cap dumps would need to happen as it doesn't look like you'd be compliant with this.

As for the trade, I would expect the Jets to just keep Scheif and see what happens with the new coach before doing a deal like this. Next offseason we could probably still expect to get a 1st, roster player and prospect for him. It's already a '23 1st being offered here so really we lose the value of a 2nd round pick by waiting and maybe get a roster player that we could actually use instead of another winger.
