Summary

The Jets signed Gilchrist from the Chargers to help solidify the back end of their rebuilt secondary. With some of the best corners in the league now, there will be more opportunities for the Jets safeties to make plays. While playing opposite tackling machine Eric Weddle, Gilchrist still managed to post nearly 60 solo tackles in each of the past two seasons. So, he can be productive, but he hasn't shown much of a penchant for big plays so consider him a depth safety. (May 21)

Jets | Marcus Gilchrist should be ready for camp (Sun May 24, 09:42 AM) - New York Jets FS Marcus Gilchrist (shoulder) is not expected to participate in any of the offseason workouts because of his shoulder injury but should be ready for the start of training camp.

Our View: The Jets grabbed Gilchrist in free agency with a four-year, $22 million deal with $8.5 million guaranteed. He'll be the team's centerfielder in 2015, and they'll ask him to roam the secondary looking to make plays on the ball. The shoulder scope is a minor surgery, and Gilchrist should be near 100 percent healthy when training camp rolls around.

Jets | Marcus Gilchrist had offseason scope (Thu May 14, 06:12 PM) - New York Jets SS Marcus Gilchrist (shoulder) had a scope performed following the 2014 season. Gilchrist wouldn't confirm what the purpose of the scope was Thursday, May 14, but he said something 'needed to be fixed.' Gilchrist has been limited so far in camp.

Our View: We'll see if he's still hampered when training camp comes along. The only other strong safety on the roster is Jaiquawn Jarrett, so getting Gilchrist back is a priority.
