With the hiring of Todd Bowles, Rodgers gets his first opportunity to run an entire defense, landing the job as Jets’ defensive coordinator.

3 Jets Veterans Affected By the Draft

1. Muhammed Wilkerson View image | gettyimages.com Wilkerson was pegged as a guy the Jets could have moved for draft picks during the period where pre-draft rumors are present.  This suspicion heightened when the Jets took a player who was not nearly a need for the team.  Sheldon Richardson, Damon Harrison, and Muhammed Wilkerson are an epic defensive line.  It’s hard...

New York Jets UDFA profile: Taiwan Jones

In the past, the New York Jets have had great success with undrafted free agents. Damon Harrison comes to mind in recent history. He came from nowhere and is now a star. If we go back a bit, Wayne Chrebet was also a UDFA. For all the busts the Jets have found in the draft, they seem to find stars after the draft is over. Today, we are going to profile one of those potential starts...

Grading the New York Jets' 2015 Draft Class

For the first time in what seems like – and likely is – a very long time, the Jets exited draft weekend feeling good about what they did over the three-day span. Whether it was stopping the perceived slides of talented players or filling holes on both sides of the ball with guys who fit their needs and represented value, general manager Mike Maccagnan and his staff showed a shrewd...

New York Jets: tracking the undrafted free agents

The NFL draft may be over, but that doesn’t mean that the work is done. The teams are in the midst of the end of draft scramble to sign players that weren’t drafted. They are known as undrafted free agents, or UDFA’s. The Jets have made some finds in this group over the years, as Damon Harrison was an undrafted free agent, as was Wayne Chrebet back in the day. Here are the...

Jets could go several directions during Day 2 of NFL draft

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) After adding to their already-formidable defensive line in the first round, the New York Jets head into the second day of the NFL draft with plenty of options. The Jets have the fifth pick in the second round (No. 37 overall) and the sixth selection (No. 70) in the third Friday.

With the sixth pick in the Thursday’s first round of the NFL Draft, the New York Jets added another beast to its lethal defensive unit, USC’s Leonard Williams.  Darrelle Revis and Damon Harrison, two of the Jets’ defensive leaders, extended a warm social media welcome to the 6’5, 305 lb. defensive lineman nicknamed Big Cat.

5 Jets Who Could Break Out in 2015

1. Quinton Coples View image | gettyimages.com He had a career high 6.5 sacks on the year. Expect that number to increase. He’s a pass rusher and now, with a beefed up secondary, he’ll be off the leash because of so much help playing behind him. The Jets are in need of a complimentary outside rusher with Calvin Pace aging, so don’t be surprised if they grab someone...

New York Jets Biggest Needs Ahead of Draft

1. Tight End View image | gettyimages.com Jace Amaro might be a nice guy, but he isn’t cutting it as starting Tight End for the Jets.

This is a major concern for the New York receiving corps because he in no way takes any pressure...

New York Jets 7 Round Mock Draft

However, at number 6 I believe both QBs will be gone and pass rusher will be the direction that they decide...

Somehow the New York Jets find themselves at 1-2 three weeks into the season. If a few breaks had gone their way, they could very easily be undefeated right now.
