The 10 best players on the New York Jets 2015 roster

After a brief stint in Arizona, Antonio Cromartie is back in green and white after signing a 4-year/$32 million deal. 10. Antonio Cromartie Jets fans know better than anyone that Cromartie is one of the worst, best corners in this league–he’s not a great open field tackler, and he’ll get burned deep every now and then, but when he’s on, he’s one of the best corners in...

New York Jets Positional Roster Review: Middle Linebackers

The New York Jets entered this offseason with a very big decision to make at the middle linebacker position. David Harris, not only the longest-tenured Jet defender but also the quarterback of the defense, was about to become a free agent. They could either bring him back (likely for an inflated price due Rex Ryan’s interest in importing him to Buffalo), or let him walk, and try...

New York Jets Sign MLB Erin Henderson

The big wheels keep on turning. The Jets continued their aggressive offseason today by reaching a one-year deal with former Vikings inside linebacker Erin Henderson. A week ago the Jets had absolutely no depth at MLB behind starters David Harris and DeMario Davis. Henderson is the second MLB the Jets have brought in to fill out their depth chart in the past week; they signed Jamari...

The Importance of Demario Davis

Earlier in the offseason, the Jets re-signed linebacker David Harris to a 3-year, $21-million contract. Harris has been cornerstone of the Jets defense since 2007 both on and off the field. However, since Harris’ time as an impact player is coming to an end, Demario Davis’ role is set to increase. The Jets took Davis in the third round of the 2012 draft out of Arkansas State...

New York Jets Offseason Report Card

The New York Jets have been one of, if not the most active team so far this offseason. They have been able to completely turn around their biggest weakness. The Jets were victim to the worst cornerback play in the NFL last year, and now after three free agent additions, they now have the best cornerback group in the NFL. However, the revamping of their cornerbacks hasn’t been their...

New York Jets re-sign MLB David Harris

David Harris is, by all reports, a nice guy, a likeable teammate, and easy to coach. He’s been a defensive captain and signal caller for the Jets defensively for years and he’s been a leader on and off the field. I feel like that gets him overpaid. Four off-seasons ago, Harris signed a 4-year, 36 million dollar deal with the Jets, even though he graded out below average in his...
