New York Jets Free Agency Recap


The Jets signed running back Le'Veon Bell to compliment Sam Darnold on offense as well as 3-4 middle linebacker C.J. Mosley to be a quarterback and veteran presence for their defense.



New York Jets Draft Recap


Quinnen Williams is the best starter the New York Jets drafted at nose tackle. New York also got Trevon Wesco as a starting fullback in the fourth round.




New York Jets Quarterback Summary: The New York Jets have new uniforms. Also Sam Darnold, enters his second season as the starting quarterback for the New York Jets. He has practiced more and should improve to a degree as long as he stays healthy in 2019. Adam Gase and his offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains are re-united. Gase is the head coach and Loggains is the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach.


New York Jets Running Back Summary: New York has Le'Veon Bell and Bilal Powell are the running backs. Jim Bob Cooter is the new running backs coach for the New York Jets.


New York Jets Wide Receiver Summary: The Jets' have Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, and Jameson Crowder in the slot as their top three wide receivers. Shawn Jefferson coached the wide receivers with Adam Gase in Miami.


New York Jets Tight End Summary: Christopher Herndon IV is now the projected starting tight end. The 2018 fourth round pick out of Miami FL is an upgrade over the other two tight ends that were competing for the starting job. I'm not sure how much he will contribute with the New York Jets.


New York Jets Offensive Line Summary: New York has three starters returning on the offensive line for the third year in a row with both offensive tackles back with Kelvin Beachum at left tackle, Kelechi Osmele at left guard, Jonatthan Harrison taking over at center, Brian Winters at right guard, and Brandon Shell returning at right tackle.


Frank Pollack is the new offensive line coach. I'm not sure how to feel about this hire if he does well with this group like he did with the Dallas Cowboys then this could be a good hire, but it could also be a bad hire if he is as awful with the Jets as he was with the Bengals.


New York has a very good run blocking offensive line along with two good running backs to take pressure off of Sam Darnold who had 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions as a rookie. I am expecting something like 21 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in his second season. New York should be a top 20 team in passing yards and a top 5 team in rushing yards. Total yards will be a middle of the pack team while they may continue to struggle in points scored due to a lack of a supporting cast on ofense outside of Darnold, Bell, and the offensive line.



New York Jets Defensive Line Summary: The New York Jets have Leonard Williams at 3-4 right end, Quinnen Williams at nose tackle, and Henry Anderson at 3-4 left end. New York has Folorunso Fatukasi as a backup 3-4 right end, Steve McLendon as a backup 3-4 nose tackle, and Nathan Shepherd as a 3-4 left end for depth. New York has a great core of starters and depth players on their 3-4 defensive line. Andre Carter has a great defensive line to work with.


New York Jets Linebacker Summary: Jordan Jenkins is going to play 3-4 left outside linebacker off the edge again with Brandon Copeland as the 3-4 right outside linebacker. This team lacks the pass rushers to get in an offensive tackles face despite having the 3-4 defensive line to hijack an interior offensive line.


New York signed C.J. Mosley, the former Baltimore Ravens 3-4 middle linebacker and Avery Williamson returns as a starting 3-4 middle linebacker.


Defensive coordinator Greg Williams and linebackers coach Frank Bush are excellent with developing linebackers. Williams coached mainly 4-3 defenses when he was a defensive coordinator, but he knows how to coordinate a front 7 effectively regardless of the scheme.


New York Jets Defensive Backs Summary: The Jets have Trumaine Johnson and Brian Poole at cornerback. Poole played nickel cornerback with the Atlanta Falcons, but has enough talent in coverage to deserve a shot as a boundary cornerback against number two receivers. Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye showed promise in their first two seasons after the Jets took both safeties out of LSU and Florida in the 2017 NFL Draft. Defensive backs coach Dennard Wilson is the only coach on this entire staff from 2018 who retained his job and he even got promoted to passing game coordinator too.


The Jets could have a top 20 defense in points per game, top 25 defense in points per game, a top 20 run defense, and a top 10 pass defense. This team won't get a lot of sacks, but will be very effective as a middle of the pack defense.



New York Jets Special Teams Summary: Chandler Catanzaro is the kicker for the New York Jets. Punter Lac Edwards is starting for the Jets once again. Trenton Cannon is the kick returner and punt returner for the New York Jets. Brant Boyer is a horrible special teams coordinator. The Jets kept Boyer for two years too long. If the Jets actually do something in 2019, I'll stop roasting Boyer.




New York Jets Worst Case Scenario: The Jets go 5-11 due to having lousy weapons for Sam Darnold as well as lacking a pass rush at 3-4 outside linebacker.


New York Jets Best Case Scenario: New York goes 7-9 and they show promise. The New York Jets could have spent more money on being a contender right now. At the same time, they are being fiscally responsible, almost as if they are waiting until Tom Brady retires to load up on talent.

New York Jets 2019 Projected Record (6-10): The New York Jets have a good, but not great defense. New York got the best offensive and defensive player in Free Agency without trying too hard to win now. New York's offensive line has looked good in OTA's, but can these guys really buy Darnold enough time the pocket. New York could also afford to upgrade their pass rush and receivers. If Darnold gets time this team can win 7 games, but a 5-11 projection until more talent arrives is more realistic.
