The Jets will have decisions aplenty this offseason when it comes to which free agents they choose to retain, as Ralph Vacchiano of SNY writes. That list starts with quarterback Josh McCown, 39, who is due to become an unrestricted free agent after starting 13 games last season. With quarterbacks such as Kirk Cousins on the market, along with the Jets holding the sixth overall pick in the draft, the team may part ways with the veteran.

One of McCown’s favorite targets last season, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, is also set to become an unrestricted free agent. The 25-year-old caught 50 passes and three touchdowns last season. On the defensive side of the ball, cornerback Morris Claiborne will hit free agency after signing a one-year deal last offseason, and linebacker Demario Davis, who was acquired from the Browns for Calvin Pryor, will hit the market as well. Davis led the Jets with 135 total tackles last year. Wesley Johnson, who started 15 games at center, and Chandler Catanzaro, who hit 25 of 30 field goals, will also become unrestricted free agents. Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa is set to become a restricted free agent after missing all of last season with a neck injury.

  • Connor Hughes of NJ Advanced Media explores the possibility of the Jets taking Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson with the sixth overall pick of the upcoming draft, considering the team has three picks within the first two rounds. Hughes notes that the Jets' draft plans will hinge on other offseason moves, such as if the team is able to sign Cousins. Nelson (6’5″, 329 pounds) is rated by most draft experts as the top guard available, which Hughes runs through in his story.
  • Big-time spending hasn’t necessarily resulted in big-time results for the Jets since Mike Maccagnan took over as general manager three seasons ago, ESPN’s Rich Cimini writes. In those three seasons, the Jets have spent $133MM in guaranteed money toward free agents, the sixth-most in the NFL during that time frame, but the Jets have gone 20-28 in that span without a postseason appearance. Some of the notable signings that didn’t quite pan out for the Jets included a five-year, $70MM ($39MM guaranteed) to Darrelle Revis and a four-year $32MM ($7MM guaranteed) to Antonio Cromartie in 2015.
  • The Jets are not planning to part ways with Robby Anderson, but they’re not about to offer him an extension either.
