Josh McCown has been around the league for 16 seasons. The organization believes he is the perfect person to mentor quarterback Sam Darnold who was their top pick in the draft. Teddy Bridgewater lurks on the sidelines as another backup and may get cut closer to the start of the season.
Isaiah Crowell is the primary running back now that Matt Forte has retired. Others in the unit included. Thomas Rawls, Bilal Powell, Elijah McGuire, and Trenton Cannon who was their sixth-round pick. They will line Lawrence Thomas up as the fullback.
Robby Anderson led the receiving corps with 941 yards and seven touchdowns. He may not be in the lineup at the beginning of the season after a brush up with law enforcement. Terrell Pryor signed a one year deal and will play outside. Jermaine Kearse and Quincy Enuwa will return to aid the unit.
Help is needed here as the rushing attack was 19th best in the league along with allowing 47 sacks. Center Spencer Long signed a four-year deal and right guard Brian Winters returns after an injury.
The main pass rusher for the Jets continues to be Leonard Williams. He contributed 25 quarterback hits which were third best in the league. Others that fill out this unit are Nathan Shephard, Xavier Cooper, Mike Pennel, and Henry Andersen.
Avery Williamson was signed to a four-year contract and is a tackling machine. Darron Lee will be paired with Williamson and Jordan Jenkins is a rush linebacker.
This unit will expect Marcus Maye and Jamal Adams to get better this season and the signing of Trumaine Johnson to a large deal is a big help to the Jets. This group will be asked to cover a lot of 1 on 1 plays.
Cairo Santos was signed from the Chiefs to be the kicker this season and signed Nick Rose to battle him for the job. Lachlan Edwards improved his punting last year and kick returns are being fought for from a bevy of players.
