  Jets | Sam Darnold eager for second season    Tue Apr 23, 01:02 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold called new head coach Adam Gase 'awesome' and added he is looking forward to his second NFL season. 'It's going to be fun to attack this year,' Darnold said Tuesday, April 23, at the team's voluntary minicamp. '... Good things to come.'

Footballguys view: Gase does have a reputation for helping his quarterback, although it seems he was not responsive to other position development in some cases during his tenure as head coach at Miami. Still, the Jets should be on the offensive improvement watch list.

  Jets | Le'Veon Bell's absence not a concern    Tue Apr 23, 12:55 PM

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell was a no-show Tuesday, April 23, on the first day of the team's voluntary minicamp, but head coach Adam Gase didn't appear overly concerned. 'It's voluntary,' Gase said, noting that Bell was with the team earlier this month for the first week of the offseason program and adding that Bell has a strong self-training regimen.

  Jets | Le'Veon Bell not seen at minicamp    Tue Apr 23, 12:13 PM

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell was not spotted with his teammates Tuesday, April 23, as the Jets opened a three-day voluntary minicamp.

Footballguys view: Some may try to make this into a story, but emphasis on "voluntary" here. The coaches say it's no issue, so it's no issue. From most reports it sounds like the minicamp is low impact and features no offense vs defense.

  Jets | Big pass-rush prospects visit Gang Green    Mon Apr 22, 01:25 AM

Ohio State DE Nick Bosa, Washington State OT Andre Dillard, Iowa TE Noah Fant, Michigan DE Rashan Gary, Texas A&M C Erik McCoy, University of Houston NT Ed Oliver, Florida LB Jachai Polite, Alabama OT Jonah Williams and Alabama DT Quinnen Williams were the notable visitors as the New York Jets completed their top-30 pre-draft visits.

Footballguys view: The Jets have the no.3 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. A pass rusher should be high on their priority list if they don't trade out of that pick.

  Jets | Noah Fant meets with Jets    Sat Apr 13, 01:02 PM

Iowa TE Noah Fant met with the New York Jets Friday, April 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Jets have the no.3 overall pick and that might be too high to take Fant. He's a first-round talent and arguably the most talented pass-catching tight end in the 2019 NFL draft. If the Jets were to move back in the draft, that might be a better spot if they really want Fant. He could go off the board between 10-15 in the opening round.

  Jets | Bilal Powell not returning to NYJ?    Fri Apr 12, 10:30 PM

Free-agent RB Bilal Powell (Jets) doesn't appear likely to be re-signed by the New York Jets, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.

Footballguys view: Absolutely zero surprise here. The Jets have Le'Veon Bell as their top running back, and they just added Ty Montgomery as a pass-catching back earlier this week. Add in guys like Eli McGuire, Trenton Cannon and De'Angelo Henderson and you can clearly see there's no room for Powell anymore. We'll see if the veteran can latch on with a team later in the offseason.

  Jets | Elijah McGuire bumped down the charts?    Thu Apr 11, 10:46 PM

New York Jets RB Elijah McGuire will likely be the third-string running back following the signing of RB Ty Montgomery, according to Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record.

Footballguys view: Yeah, it's a weird signing for the Jets as they already have McGuire (and Trenton Cannon) on the roster. The starter is Le'Veon Bell, and he's a great three-down back. When he needs a breather, Montgomery might be that next back up.

Free-agent RB Ty Montgomery (Ravens) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New York Jets Thursday, April 11, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Montgomery is going to serve as the primary change-of-pace back behind starter Le'Veon Bell. It's an interesting signing for the Jets since they already have Eli McGuire and Trenton Cannon in the backfield. We'll see those three compete for playing time and to establish a pecking order behind Bell for the 2019 season.

  Jets | Robby Anderson sets goal for 2019    Fri Apr 5, 06:50 PM

New York Jets WR Robby Anderson said he expects to post at least 1,000 yards next season.

Footballguys view: Anderson went from WR15 in 2017 to WR33 in 2018 (standard scoring leagues), and he's a clear candidate for a bounce-back season in 2019. We're interested to see how new head coach Adam Gase constructs this Jets offense with some fine weapons, including Anderson, this season.

Texas A&M RB Trayveon Williams recently participated in a private workout with the New York Jets, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Williams doesn't have overwhelming measurables but he does have a ton of heart. He plays with a lot of passion and puts forth great effort as a runner and in pass protection. Williams should be a mid-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

New York Jets exclusive-rights free agent RB De'Angelo Henderson signed his tender Tuesday, April 2.

Footballguys view: The Jets have Le'Veon Bell to be their lead back in 2019. Behind him, they will see guys like Henderson, Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon compete for the pecking order at the running back position. Henderson is likely fourth on that list.

  Jets | Coach praises Jamison Crowder    Mon Apr 1, 02:24 PM

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder 'has something unique as far as he has an explosiveness after the catch that you don't see (among slot receivers),' according to head coach Adam Gase. In 56 games over four seasons with the Washington Redskins, Crowder had 34 receptions of at least 20 yards and six of at least 40.'A lot of slot players, historically, have not been guys that are threats down the field. He's actually a threat down the field, but at the same time, he can catch it and create, which is going to be interesting for us. We've never had a guy that really can juice it up like he can,' Gase said.

Footballguys view: Crowder can be a dangerous weapon on underneath routes when healthy. Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa will line up outside with Crowder manning the slot for the Jets in 2019.

  Jets | Le'Veon Bell's workload will be monitored    Tue Mar 26, 07:18 PM

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell won't be burnt out with his new team if head coach Adam Gase has his way. Gase said the Jets will keep an eye on Bell's practice snaps and snap count in games. 'This is not going to be [a situation] where we burn him out in the first six months,' Gase said.

Footballguys view: It's been some time since Bell was toting the rock in a regular season game. The Jets are wise to monitor his touches, not only in practices but in games as well. Bell should still post strong RB1 numbers in 2019, this just means they'll give him a breather from time to time.

  Jets | Jamison Crowder excited for offense    Sun Mar 24, 10:59 PM

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder said he is excited to play in head coach Adam Gase's offense because of how it utilizes slot receivers.

Footballguys view: Crowder had a disappointing 2018 season, missing time due to injury and finishing the year with a career-low 29 catches for 388 receiving yards. He should be excited to be working with a bright offensive mind like Gase. Crowder could catch around 50 passes in this offense and put up WR4 or deep flex numbers for Fantasy GMs in 2019.

  Jets | Trevor Siemian joining Jets    Wed Mar 20, 04:03 PM

Free-agent QB Trevor Siemian (Vikings) is signing a one-year deal with the New York Jets Wednesday, March 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Jets have second-year quarterback Sam Darnold as their starter but they needed to find a veteran backup. That's what Siemian is best at, even though he did get a chance to be a starter with the Broncos in the past. Siemian is not a threat to start but things wouldn't go off the rails if he has to step in and play.
