  Jets | Surgery for Sam Darnold    Fri Jan 10, 04:54 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (thumb) underwent surgery Tuesday, Jan. 10, to repair a torn ligament in his thumb, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This thumb injury was something Darnold had to deal with over the last two months of the regular season. Darnold is expected to be ready for the start of offseason workouts.

  Jets | Short routes for Jamison Crowder    Fri Jan 3, 10:54 PM

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder's 122 targets this season ranked 19th in the NFL, but his 833 receiving yards were the fewest of any player ranked in the top 25 in targets.

Footballguys view: Crowder was a security blanket receiver for Sam Darnold in 2019. With Robbie Anderson likely moving on in free agency, it will be interesting to see what kind of other wide receiver talent the Jets can add. Either way, Crowder should continue being a relief-valve receiver in 2020.

  Jets | Le'Veon Bell not guaranteed to return    Tue Dec 31, 06:22 PM

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is not guaranteed to return to the team next season since general manager Joe Douglas said he would be willing to listen to trade offers for him this offseason. 'Like I said, if teams do call, I'm going to listen. How those conversations go, I can't speak to that. That's hypothetical. When teams call, I will listen,' Douglas said.

Footballguys view: The team will listen to offers for Bell but they may not get that many. Bell's contract is huge but the Jets might bend over backwards to get him out of the building.

  Jets | Robby Anderson may test market    Mon Dec 30, 05:03 PM

New York Jets impending free-agent WR Robby Anderson said he does not see a reason to re-sign with the Jets before the start of free agency because he wants to check on his value in the free-agent market.

Footballguys view: Anderson could get a hefty payday on the open market. There's not a great group of free agent wide receivers this year and Anderson's skill set (speed, speed and more speed) could draw quite the price tag.

  Jets | Quincy Enunwa dealing with spinal stenosis    Mon Dec 30, 12:22 PM

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) informed reporters Monday, Dec. 30, that he has been diagnosed with spinal stenosis. However, he is reportedly optimistic about playing in 2020, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.

Footballguys view: Enunwa played 66 snaps in the season opener against the Bills and hasn't played since then. The veteran was targeted three times in that game, catching one pass for negative four yards. He's on the books through the 2022 season with a cap hit of $7.8 million ($5.4 million in dead money) in 2020.

  Jets | Ryan Griffin faces long road to recovery    Mon Dec 30, 12:15 PM

New York Jets TE Ryan Griffin (ankle) underwent surgery to repair ligament damage in his ankle about a week ago and expects to need six months to complete the rehab process.

Footballguys view: Griffin flashed a bit for the Jets this season. The recovery time means that he will be out of action for spring workouts. Griffin might be able to do something in minicamp or OTAs and should be ready to go by training camp at the latest.

  Jets | Week 17 final stats for Jets    Sun Dec 29, 04:42 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 23-of-36 passes for 199 yards, one touchdowns and one interception in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills. RB Le'Veon Bell rushed 16 times for a team-high 41 yards with five grabs for 36 yards on five targets, while RB Bilal Powell added seven runs for 27 yards. WR Jamison Crowder led the way with eight catches for a team-high 66 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets, while WR Robby Anderson finished his season with three grabs for 18 yards on seven targets.

Footballguys view: Bell may be one-and-done with the Jets if they can find a trade partner. Anderson is almost certain to leave in free agency, while Crowder has been a reasonable success as a late round fantasy pick with inconsistent peaks and valleys. The Jets will have a very different looking offense under Adam Gase next year.

  Jets | Le'Veon Bell could be moved this offseason    Fri Dec 27, 02:06 AM

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is likely to be traded during the offseason, in the opinion of ESPN's Rich Cimini, who believes the team will agree to pay some of his remaining salary to facilitate a deal. Cimini thinks a mid-round selection, perhaps in the fourth round, will likely be the return for Bell.

Footballguys view: Bell's contract is not very team-friendly, but a third day pick to take it on isn't outlandish. There will only be a few teams that will consider it, and David Johnson will also be on the market for perhaps less draft compensation. The Jets don't really have a running back of the future on the roster and should be in the market in the draft and free agency.

  Jets | Robby Anderson finds the end zone    Sun Dec 22, 04:54 PM

New York Jets WR Robby Anderson posted two grabs for 32 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Anderson scored early but was quiet after. He is still building his resume for free agency and should be the prize of 2020 free agency unless Dallas lets Amari Cooper walk.

Footballguys view: The Steelers defense was tough as expected, but Bell looked energetic considering the punishment he has absorbed this year. He should be on the trade market, but his contract is prohibitive. Bell showed up to the game today in black and gold...

Footballguys view: Adams return is a big boost for the Jets and should make life harder for Devlin Hodges. Expect the Jets to dial up a lot of blitzes against the Steelers after that approach worked for the Bills last week.
