  Jets | Devin Smith should start on PUP list    Sat Jul 23, 03:50 PM

New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) is expected to begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. If he does start on the PUP list, he will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season.

  Jets | Lots of rest for Matt Forte     Thu Jul 21, 04:42 PM

New York Jets RB Matt Forte should receive plenty of rest this season with RBs Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson also in the mix.

Footballguys view: Forte will see a lot of touches in 2016 but with Powell re-signed, he should also stay fresh throughout the season. We believe he will put up solid RB2 numbers this year.

  Jets | Quincy Enunwa set to be third receiver?    Thu Jul 21, 03:10 PM

New York Jets WR Quincy Enunwa currently has the inside track on being the No. 3 wide receiver. He will battle with WRs Kenbrell Thompkins, Jalin Marshall and Devin Smith (knee) for roster spots and playing time behind WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Footballguys view: Smith is still banged up, Thompkins is a one-note receiver and Marshall is a UDFA who is built like a RB and is fairly raw. The third spot in the Jets passing offense has dubious fantasy potential, though Enunwa had the third most targets last season and managed mostly out of the slot in four-wide sets. He was inconsistent though and so at most he is a late round flier in this offense.

  Jets | Sheldon Richardson will not be limited    Wed Jul 20, 04:19 PM

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson will receive his normal snaps during training camp even though he has been suspended for the first game of the 2016 season. Richardson was limited during training camp last season and said his conditioning was an issue after he served a four-game suspension.

Footballguys view: Richardson is one of the more disruptive players in the league at his position. With only a one-game ban, the Jets would be wise to get him up to speed with a normal amount of reps in camp.

  Jets | Two Jets RBs to compete for No. 3 job    Wed Jul 20, 04:07 PM

New York Jets RBs Zac Stacy (leg) and Khiry Robinson (leg) will compete for the No. 3 running back job during training camp, but Robinson may have an edge because the team does not believe he has reached his full potential yet.

Footballguys view: Robinson is the player to highlight here. He's a swift runner who can build a head of steam, and Robinson has a nose for the end zone. With Matt Forte's struggles near paydirt, we could see Robinson become the goal-line back for the Jets.

  Jets | Jordan Jenkins may start in 2016    Wed Jul 20, 04:06 PM

New York Jets LB Jordan Jenkins will have a good chance to start at strongside linebacker in Week 1 if he is able to handle the mental aspect of the game.

Footballguys view: There's a reason why the Jets picked up Jenkins in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft. He's got a large wingspan and the ability to put opposing QBs under duress often. Adding Jenkins only enhances the team's already-strong front seven.

  Jets | Important year for Jace Amaro    Wed Jul 20, 02:34 PM

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro is the projected starter for the Jets after he missed all of last year with a shoulder injury. He has worked hard on his blocking and believes he's improved in that area. However, he must earn the trust of offensive coordinator Chan Gailey and head coach Todd Bowles. The Jets tight ends combined for just eight catches on 23 targets in 2015.

Footballguys view: Amaro seems to be in another make-or-break year. He's physically talented, but that potential has never translated to production in the NFL. We can't imagine he gets more than 30 or so catches this year if he stays healthy. There's just not much there with Amaro.

  Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson will be ready    Wed Jul 20, 02:33 PM

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) said he will be ready for the season opener but can't predict when he'll be available in training camp. He is recovering from a broken right leg suffered in the season finale in 2015.

Footballguys view: That's good news for Wilkerson, but we don't think the Jets will have him do much in the preseason. Monitor his status leading up to the regular season. With Wilkerson on the field, the Jets are going to be a tough defense to run against. Remember that when considering RBs going up against them. In 2015, the Jets gave up only 83.4 rushing yards per game--a mark good for 2nd in the NFL.

  Jets | Long delay in Ryan Fitzpatrick talks    Tue Jul 19, 08:09 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) and the New York Jets have not discussed a new contract in over a month, according to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: Another day, and another 'nothing is happening' story about the Jets and Ryan Fitzpatrick. With training camp approaching, we hope something happens--anything--to get these two sides on the same page. Fitzpatrick isn't worth as much as he wants, the Jets have to come up a bit from their low-ball offer. Once Geno Smith starts throwing picks in practice, the Jets could change their tune.

  Jets | Khiry Robinson set for goal-line role?    Tue Jul 19, 01:29 PM

New York Jets RB Khiry Robinson (leg) could be utilized as a short-yardage and goal-line back this season.

Footballguys view: Robinson has determination when he runs, and the team could save some wear and tear on starter Matt Forte. Last year with the Bears, Forte had 21 carries inside the 10-yard line but was only able to score four rushing touchdowns from inside that distance. Last year for the Saints, Robinson scored the same amount of touchdowns but on only six carries from inside the 10.

  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick situation could linger    Mon Jul 18, 07:37 PM

It looks as though the New York Jets may wait to view the practice repetitions of QB Geno Smith in training camp before there is more movement in talks with free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets), according to sources.

Footballguys view: COULD linger? So what has it been doing for months, sauntering slowly? We suppose it could linger longer, and practically everyone under the sun has gotten tired of the drama. With training camp approaching, it's time to you-know-what or get off the pot when it comes to the Fitzpatrick/Jets situation. We'll see if they can finally come to an agreement.

  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jets not a given    Mon Jul 18, 11:00 AM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) re-signing with the New York Jets by the start of training camp, or shortly after, isn't a sure thing. The Jets have been offering a three-year, $24 million deal with $12 million in the first year.

Footballguys view: It's never really been a sure thing...especially since the Jets haven't fallen all over themselves to get Fitzpatrick signed. We were a bit shocked they were able to come to a long-term agreement with franchise player Muhammad Wilkerson, but with that behind them all attention can be turned towards Fitzpatrick. We just don't see them moving much on their current offer.

  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick to sign soon?    Sat Jul 16, 03:26 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) and the New York Jets should have more flexibility in future negotiations because the signing of DE Muhammad Wilkerson brings the possibility of a one-year deal. New York had just $3.4 million in salary cap space before the Wilkerson deal. That will now increase by a few million because the Jets no longer have to carry Wilkerson's $15.7 million franchise tag.

Footballguys view: The Wilkerson signing was a bit of a surprise as the two sides had shown little to no movement prior to his new contract getting done. Things have been quiet on the Fitzpatrick front, but that could change quickly with training camp less than two weeks away.

  Jets | Sheldon Richardson will be expensive    Sat Jul 16, 03:15 PM

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson will 'surely' come at a higher price than the $54 million in guaranteed money to which DE Muhammad Wilkerson signed, according to NJ.com's Darryl Slater. Richardson and the Jets are expected to start long-term contract negotiations next offseason as Richardson enters the fourth year of his rookie contract.

Footballguys view: The Jets have used the fifth-year option on Richardson (a first-round pick in 2013), a move that will lock up Richardson through the 2017 season. We should see the two sides work towards an extension next offseason before Richardson hits free agency (so long as he stays healthy and stops getting suspended).

  Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson may go on PUP list    Sat Jul 16, 09:49 AM

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) likely will begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list because the team wants to be cautious with him since he is returning from a broken leg. The Jets want to make sure he will be ready for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Camp PUP is no big deal--unlike the PUP list to start the regular season. If he's on the list to start camp, the Jets can decide to activate him at any time. We should not only see him on PUP to start training camp, but don't expect Wilkerson to get much playing time in the preseason either.

  Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson receives new deal    Fri Jul 15, 04:51 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson did sign a five-year deal with the Jets Friday, July 15, worth $86 million. The deal includes $37 million guaranteed and $54 million in the first three years.

Footballguys view: It was a bit of a surprise move to be honest. All signs were pointing to no deal, but the two sides were able to get something done right before the deadline. Wilkerson had not participated during the offseason camps and there was a belief that he would hold out into training camp and perhaps even the regular season. Now, Wilkerson gets the long-term deal he wants and the Jets will continue to have one of the best defensive lines in the league.

  Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson, Jets far apart    Thu Jul 14, 05:28 PM

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson and the Jets are still far apart in their long-term contract negotiations. The deadline for franchise tagged players to sign a long-term deal is Friday, July 15. If a deal is not done, Wilkerson would have to play the 2016 season under the franchise tag. Wilkerson would earn $15.701 million this year with the tag. It's also possible, according to NJ.com's Darryl Slater, that Wilkerson could also be tagged next year.

Footballguys view: Wilkerson will play, but under the tag. The simple truth is the Jets lack the room to make him a good offer this year or next. Wilkerson will play because he stands to make more money in free agency if he proves he is healthy. We may see more Leonard Williams and Sheldon Richardson in Wilkerson's spot by the end of the season.

  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick remains at impasse    Tue Jul 12, 09:19 AM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has experienced no progress in contract talks with the New York Jets with just over two weeks away. Time may be running out since training camp felt like a deadline to get a deal done.

Footballguys view: Nothing on the horizon for Fitzpatrick and the Jets...just like it's been for some time now. If the team gets to camp and realizes they could do better than Geno Smith at starter, then perhaps something would change between the two sides. We're not holding out breath.

  Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson, Jets not talking    Fri Jul 8, 03:07 PM

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson has not talked with the Jets about a long-term contract, according to a source. The Jets have until July 15 to sign Wilkerson to a long-term deal.

Footballguys view: We don't expect them too either. Wilkerson costs too much for the Jets, though he will be missed after this season. This is a situation that has looked like a wreck from the moment the franchise tag was placed on Wilkerson.

  Jets | Big workload for Bilal Powell?    Thu Jul 7, 04:16 PM

New York Jets RB Bilal Powell is expected to see a lot of touches this season, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello.

Footballguys view: We'll see how that works out. The Jets have said more than once they see Matt Forte as a workhorse back. Until we see different, Powell is no more than bench depth or a handcuff for Forte. Powell is coming off the board at RB44 (10.12), while Forte is getting drafted at RB12 (3.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Jets | Steve McLendon playing multiple spots    Sun Jul 3, 10:42 PM

New York Jets DT Steve McLendon was used at multiple positions along the defensive line, including nose tackle, during spring practices, and he said he uses his quickness to play various roles.

Footballguys view: After six seasons with the Steelers, McLendon joined the Jets this offseason as a free agent. Like former nose tackle Damon Harrison (Giants), McLendon can be counted on as an effective run-stuffer--plus he can be moved all across the defensive line. The Jets have one of the best defensive lines in the league...so long as franchise-tagged Muhammad Wilkerson is on board in 2016.

  Jets | Jace Amaro a better blocker    Sat Jul 2, 02:19 PM

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro has put much effort into making himself a better blocker this offseason, according to tight ends coach Jimmie Johnson. 'You can see that he's put a lot of effort into trying to improve that part of his game,' Johnson said.

Footballguys view: Amaro is in a make-or-break year for the Jets...but it seems like he's in one of those every year. He's a tease for fantasy owners because he has the natural skill set to produce at a higher level than he has, but Amaro has never played up to his potential. He's at the top of the TE depth chart for the Jets, but we can't trust him as anything more than a low-end TE3 for fantasy owners.

  Jets | Marcus Williams should see more time    Wed Jun 29, 06:55 PM

New York Jets CB Marcus Williams was on the field for 27% of the defensive snaps in 2015 but should receive more playing time in 2016 since CB Antonio Cromartie is no longer on the team. Williams should line up as an outside linebacker in the team's nickel coverage if CB Buster Skrine moves to nickel back.

  Jets | Bryce Petty projected off the team    Mon Jun 27, 03:41 PM

New York Jets QB Bryce Petty did not make the 53-man roster projection made by Seth Walder of the New York Daily News.

Footballguys view: Petty was a huge project when the team picked him up in the draft out of Baylor last year. He lacks the processor to make quick decisions when working from under center. With the team picking up Christian Hackenberg (Penn State) in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft, Petty has become expendable. Geno Smith should start this year, and Hackenberg should be considered the QB of the future.

  Jets | Nick Folk will have competition    Sun Jun 26, 05:06 PM

New York Jets PK Nick Folk will compete with PK Ross Martin for the kicker job during training camp, but the team would save around $2.2 million in salary cap space if Folk is released.

Footballguys view: Martin was a highly accurate kicker the last two years at Duke, so he can give Folk a run to save the Jets some money. His kickoff leg is not the best, but rule changes should make that less important.

  Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson ditches brace    Fri Jun 24, 09:09 PM

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) shared a video that showed him running without a leg brace, and he remains on track to be ready for the start of the season, if not sooner.

Footballguys view: Wilkerson surprisingly did not draw strong trade interest during the draft, and the continuing recovery of his leg injury could be a reason. With the loss of Damon Harrison in free agency to the Giants, the Jets will need Wilkerson to earn his franchise tag salary of 15.701 million.

  Jets | Christian Hackenberg not expected in '16    Wed Jun 22, 01:14 AM

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg struggled with his accuracy in offseason workouts, and appeared methodical with his footwork while also making poor decisions. Beat writer Rich Cimini notes the rookie showed his arm strength, though, especially on deep balls. He needs to develop consistency. Hackenberg is not expected to play in 2016.

Footballguys view: Hackenberg is not ready to assume any kind of responsibility for this team, so they might have to carry four quarterbacks. 2015 fourth-round pick Bryce Petty is not ready to even be the backup, leaving Geno Smith as the only quarterback on the roster who can be trusted in game situations. Even if Ryan Fitzpatrick is signed as we expect, Smith will need to stay on as the backup.

  Jets | Dexter McDougle not jumping out    Wed Jun 22, 01:14 AM

New York Jets CB Dexter McDougle did not do anything wrong during the offseason workouts, but he also did not jump out. The team has five experienced cornerbacks, so beat writer Rich Cimini believes McDougle needs a strong training camp and preseason to avoid being the latest draft pick to be cut.

  Jets | NYJ excited about Deion Barnes    Wed Jun 22, 01:13 AM

  Jets | Lorenzo Mauldin to play every down    Wed Jun 22, 01:13 AM

New York Jets LB Lorenzo Mauldin had a strong rookie campaign, and the team expects him to be an every-down players in 2016.

Footballguys view: The Jets defensive line has been one of the strongest in the league for a while, but they have struggled to find edge rushers to take advantage of that strength. Maudlin has a chance to break through this year and should be considered a sack-heavy IDP league sleeper.

  Jets | Brandon Marshall trying to shed weight    Tue Jun 21, 04:49 PM

New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall will ideally play at 230 pounds throughout the 2016 season, if head coach Todd Bowles has his way. Marshall said he's played at an average of 234 pounds to 235 pounds the last five seasons.

Footballguys view: Five pounds shouldn't make that much difference in his play, but perhaps he'll feel better and be able to bounce back after games quicker. The QB situation is looking more and more like it's going to be Geno Smith, but we still think Marshall is a high-end WR2 for fantasy owners. His ADP coincides with that logic, as he's currently WR13 (2.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Jets | Bryce Petty still needs to improve    Tue Jun 21, 04:15 PM

New York Jets QB Bryce Petty must work on improving his ball security, pocket presence and reading coverages, according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com. Petty may not make the final roster if he doesn't have a good training camp.

Footballguys view: Petty was a risky prospect when the Jets picked him up last year in the draft. He came from a gimmicky Baylor system and never had to make NFL decisions in college. Playing Madden 16 won't help him get better, Petty needs to produce on the field. With the team selecting Christian Hackenberg (Penn State) in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft we see Petty's days with the Jets as numbered.

  Jets | No worries about Christian Hackenberg    Fri Jun 17, 09:48 PM

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg's inconsistent accuracy is not a concern at this time, head coach Todd Bowles said.

Footballguys view: It's not a concern, and it shouldn't be a surprise. Hackenberg was inconsistent in college and it's been a couple of seasons since he looked like a prospect with intriguing upside. He's supposed to be their QB of the future, but we'd be surprised if he makes a large impact as a pro. Hackenberg is a huge project, and his game may not be good enough to translate into being a good starter in the NFL.

  Jets | Kyle Williams signs with Jets    Fri Jun 17, 02:31 PM

Free-agent WR Kyle S. Williams (Broncos) signed with the New York Jets on an undisclosed deal Friday, June 17. The Jets waived WR Quenton Bundrage.

Footballguys view: Williams struggles to stay healthy, and he's primarily just a return man...if he can make the team.

  Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson disgruntled    Thu Jun 16, 12:06 PM

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson broke his silence and expressed frustration with the team that he hasn't signed a long-term deal. 'It's shocking. It's frustrating,' Wilkerson told The Post in an exclusive interview. 'Because I feel like I've earned it and I deserve it. It would be different if I was just a mediocre player. I feel like each and every week I'm dominating and it's showing. The stats speak for themselves. Basically, what more do I need to do? You know what I mean?'

Footballguys view: It's hard to be a Jets fan these days. Forget Ryan Fitzpatrick - Jets fans have to be anxious because Mo Wilkerson will not be a Jet in 2017. Luckily, the team is super-deep on the line, but at the end of the day we know Wilkerson is a superlative talent. He'll net a ton on the open market, which is why the cash-strapped Jets can't pay him.

  Jets | Darrelle Revis not changing style    Wed Jun 15, 07:53 PM

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (wrist) said he will not change his playing style even though he is getting older. 'I know what type of player I am,' Revis said. 'There's no need for me to put my energy into those types of things. I've been doing this for a while and I'm going to continue keep on doing it until it's time for me to leave.'

Footballguys view: We know Revis will continue to go hard. The Jets need to plan for the future beyond him but there isn't anyone in line to replace Revis. As we have said before, Buster Skrine is a key part of this secondary as Revis is good enough to continue to drive traffic to the other side. If Skrine can't stop them - or Dee Milliner or Marcus Williams can't - the Jets are in trouble.

New York Jets WR Kenbrell Thompkins was excused from practice Wednesday, June 15, because of an undisclosed reason.

  Jets | New York won't wait forever on QB    Wed Jun 15, 06:24 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's (Jets) impasse with the New York Jets does have an expiration date, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said the Jets will rely on QB Geno Smith to be their starter if Fitzpatrick's contract is not worked out by a certain time. Bowles didn't say when exactly that time would be, but he indicated that it wouldn't be preseason. Fitzpatrick would start if/when he does re-sign, though.

Footballguys view: More pressure on Fitzpatrick to fold. A lot of Jets fans are losing their minds over the thought of Geno Smith starting, but so far reports on him have been glowing. And let's also consider that this is the best receiver tandem he has worked with by far (Eric Decker was wildly out of place as a WR1 in 2014) and Chan Gailey's offense should be a good fit. On top of all that, the opening schedule is so brutal they might as well trot Fireman Ed out there--at least when he gets killed they will still have a full roster. The schedule, even more than Smith's history, is why we are not bullish on whomever is QB1 for the Jets. Smith is no safer than a low-end QB3 and Fitzpatrick would likely be about the same thing.

  Jets | Could add quarterback    Wed Jun 15, 03:54 PM

If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) does not re-sign with the New York Jets then head coach Todd Bowles said they might add a veteran quarterback.

Footballguys view: That crash you heard was Bryce Petty dropping his lunch tray in the cafeteria, probably because there was a fly in his pudding but also because if the team pulls in a veteran, Petty is likely the odd man out. Hackenberg is too valuable to risk getting snagged on the way to the practice squad, and Geno Smith would start. There's no way the Jets burn four roster spots on the position so Petty could be in trouble if he can't show improvement this summer.

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) and the New York Jets do not have a 'drop-dead deadline' to get a deal done, according to head coach Todd Bowles. It was reported Monday, June 13, that there had been no progress in contract talks with Fitzpatrick.

Footballguys view: The Jets are slow-playing this Fitzpatrick situation. He's gone from scoffing at their offer to being interested in any sort of deal they give him. The team is ready to move forward with Geno Smith as their likely starter while rookie Christian Hackenberg is seen as the developmental QB.

  Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson could hold out    Tue Jun 14, 02:59 PM

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson will not sign his franchise tender any time soon. He also may not report for training camp as he continues to wait for a long-term contract, according to sources. Wilkerson is not present for the Jets' mandatory minicamp, but he will not be fined for missing it because he has not signed his tender. He would also not be fined for skipping training camp, if he does so, for the same reason.

Footballguys view: We're expecting him to hold out, and this may spread into the regular season. The Jets have shown absolutely zero interest in signing Wilkerson to a long-term deal, and he does not want to play on the one-year franchise tender. The situation has always been cold throughout the offseason, and we're not looking for things to warm up before the July 15th deadline.

  Jets | Muhammad Wilkerson might not report    Mon Jun 13, 09:57 PM

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson is still unhappy he does not have a long-term contract, and he will not sign his franchise-tag tender anytime soon. As such, he might not report for the start of training camp in late July, sources said Monday. He will skip the team's mandatory minicamp, which starts Tuesday, June 14. Because he hasn't signed his tender, he cannot be fined for not participating in the three-day event.

Footballguys view: The Jets have given no indication that they are willing to give Wilkerson a long-term deal. The two sides have until July 15th to work out a deal, but we're not optimistic that something will get done. After the deadline, then we'll see if Wilkerson is willing to sit out during training camp and perhaps the regular season.

Footballguys view: Smith is at the top of the depth charts for the Jets...at this time. Ryan Fitzpatrick is still out there, and the team may end up bringing him back after a long and drawn out courtship in free agency. If he's actually the starter, we don't see Smith as anything more than a QB3 for fantasy owners.

  Jets | Kellen Davis had surgery    Wed Jun 8, 06:35 PM

New York Jets TE Kellen Davis (thumb) will not participate in the remainder of New York's offseason program after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb. Davis will be ready for the start of training camp in late July, however, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Footballguys view: Davis is a big-bodied blocker, and he doesn't have fantasy value. The team is trying to see if Jace Amaro can actually do something as a pro, and he'll be the Jets leading pass-catcher at the position.
