Matt Peterson tracks the offseason needs of every team in the league. Today’s franchise, the New York Jets [full archive here].

Season Recap: The New York Jets failed to live up to the expectations of Super Bowl Champions, as proclaimed by Head Coach Rex Ryan at the start of the season. The public rift between Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes affected the entire locker room and numerous reports stated many players gave up on the season. Who knows, with the acquisition of “the winner” Tim Tebow, there is a real chance the Jets are right back in the thick of things for the upcoming season.

Team Needs:
1. Wide Receiver: Even if Santonio Holmes returns to old form, the Jets still need another option for Sanchez and Tebow. Chaz Schilens was signed as a free agent, but has had durability issues the past. The Jets should be in solid position to select a receiver in round one. Stephen Hill and Reuben Randle are two prospects that should be available.

2. Right Tackle: The Jets have had a weakness at the position since Damien Woody retired after the 2010 season. Riley Rieff would be the best option if available. Mike Adams and Jonathon Martin are also good fits.

3. Outside Linebacker: Bryan Thomas and Calvin Pace are on the downside of the careers. New York needs a pass rushing threat on the outside. Courtney Upshaw is a hard-nosed player and would fit perfectly in Ryan’s 3-4 defense.
