  Jets | NYJ not worried about Zach Wilson's shoulder    Fri Apr 9, 06:24 PM

Brigham Young QB Zach Wilson had shoulder surgery in 2019, but the New York Jets do not have any concerns about his shoulder.

Footballguys view: Wilson is an exciting prospect who can make something happen out of nothing when a play breaks down. It is believed that Wilson is the leading candidate to go to the Jets with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He should start from Day 1 and may be the franchise quarterback the Jets have been searching for. With his rushing ability, elite arm talent and the weapons around him we could see Wilson perform like a QB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2021.

  Jets | NYJ trades Sam Darnold    Mon Apr 5, 04:06 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold was traded to the Carolina Panthers Monday, April 5, in exchange for a 2021 sixth-round draft choice, a 2022 second-round draft choice and a 2022 fourth-round draft choice.

Footballguys view: It's not much of a haul for Darnold, a top-5 pick in the 2018 NFL draft. The team needed and wanted a fresh start, so moving on from Darnold makes sense. This opens the way for the quarterback they're taking at no.2 overall (likely Zach Wilson) to be the unquestioned starter.

  Jets | Gang Green eyeing two running backs    Sun Apr 4, 08:37 PM

Virginia Tech RB Khalil Herbert and North Carolina RB Michael Carter are two players the New York Jets are 'high on' in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: Herbert and Carter flashed earlier this year at the Senior Bowl. We see Herbert as a mid-round sleeper who can do it all. He's well-rounded as a runner and receiver out of the backfield with fluid skills when the ball is in his hands. Carter is a big-play waiting to happen type of back. He's got speed, juice and electricity as a runner and is a decent receiver. However, his pass protection skills leave a lot to be desired.

  Jets | No explosion from La'Mical Perine    Thu Apr 1, 10:47 PM

New York Jets RB La'Mical Perine averaged 3.6 yards per carry in 2020, rushing for 15-plus yards on one of his 64 attempts.

Footballguys view: The Jets running attack didn't scare anyone, and Perine wasn't productive when he got a chance to play. The team added Tevin Coleman this offseason and he'll be in the mix to be the lead back. We expect them to address the position in the draft as well. Perine should not have much of a role with the Jets on offense.

  Jets | NYJ had interest in Jonnu Smith    Sun Mar 28, 11:49 AM

The New York Jets had expressed interest in former Tennessee Titans TE Jonnu Smith during free agency before he ultimately decided to sign with the New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: That would have made a lot of sense. Chris Herndon is their lead tight end right now and he's talented but struggles to stay on the field due to injuries. We'll see if they address the position with a premium pick (second round?) in the 2021 NFL draft.

  Jets | Zach Wilson praises Jets    Fri Mar 26, 02:39 PM

Former Brigham Young University QB and 2021 NFL Draft prospect Zach Wilson on Friday, March 26, complimented the New York Jets, who hold the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, following his pro day workout. 'Great staff. Love those guys,' Wilson said. '(General manager) Joe Douglas is a great guy. It was good to see him out here. They've got a good thing going.' Then, asked if he'd like to play for the Jets, Wilson said, 'I'd be happy to play with any team that drafts me.'

Footballguys view: The Eagles reportedly were possibly open to trading up to #3 if they thought they could get Wilson, but chose to trade down instead, a sign that the Jets are zeroed in on Wilson because Eagles GM Howie Roseman and Jets GM Joe Douglas are very close. Many believe we can pencil in Wilson at #2 after Lawrence and the draft now starts at #3.

  Jets | Tevin Coleman inking deal with NY Jets    Wed Mar 24, 04:37 PM

Free-agent RB Tevin Coleman (49ers) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth up to $2 million with the New York Jets on Wednesday, March 24.

Footballguys view: The Jets need running back help and Coleman is part of the solution. He's still got straight-line speed but should not be counted on to carry a heavy workload. We expect the Jets to address the running back position on the second or third day of the 2021 NFL draft. La'Mical Perine, Ty Johnson, and Josh Adams will compete to make a RBBC with Coleman as likely the lead back.

  Jets | Corey Davis believes Sam Darnold will start    Tue Mar 23, 01:25 PM

New York Jets WR Corey Davis signed with the team in free agency last week with the understanding that QB Sam Darnold will remain the starting quarterback in 2021, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

Footballguys view: Davis is the new guy but he has an opinion on the starter for next year. The Jets have the no.2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft and could easily go with Zach Wilson (BYU) as their starter. That means they'd have dealt Darnold by the time the draft rolls around. We think it's still too early to say whether or not Darnold is going to be the Jets starter in 2021.

  Jets | NYJ talking with JuJu Smith-Schuster    Thu Mar 18, 12:27 PM

Free agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been in recent conversation with the New York Jets, according to sources on Thursday, March 18. The Jets are still looking to add offensive playmakers despite their recent signing of free agent WR Corey Davis.

Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster, like the rest of the free agent wide receiver market, is not finding the contract offers he had hoped for. If the Jets sign him, that should be curtains for Jamison Crowder, who is due 10 million dollars this year.

Footballguys view: Adams is a big-bodied power back who can grind between the tackles. Expect the Jets to add a running back in the draft, but Adams will be in the mix for their RBBC in 2021.

  Jets | Jake Funk talks with Jets    Sun Mar 14, 08:10 PM

Maryland RB Jake Funk 'spent an extensive amount of time' with the New York Jets during the Maryland Pro Day, according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: Funk is an interesting late-round pick at the running back position. He's got speed but it takes some time for him to build to top speed. Funk has agility and can make cuts at speed without losing momentum. He could stick around in the NFL as a reserve runner and special teams player.

New York Jets WR Vyncint Smith signed a one-year contract Saturday, March 13. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Smith was undrafted out of Limestone State in 2018 but has spent most of his career developing with the Jets. He had a core muscle issue that put him on Injured Reserve for some time last year. For the most part, Smith is a special teams player who has a nice size/speed combination when he gets on the field as an offensive player.

  Jets | Sam Darnold drawing interest    Mon Feb 22, 12:48 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold has drawn real trade interest, but the team wants to fully evaluate all the quarterbacks in the NFL draft before making a decision.

Footballguys view: Darnold should be drawing interest. He's still only 23-years old, and some teams may think they can get his career on track. Darnold's career wasn't done any favors by former Jets head coach Adam Gase. We should see him moved before the 2021 NFL draft, and that means the Jets will be in the market for a quarterback like Zach Wilson (BYU) at no.2 overall.

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold can likely be acquired for a second-round pick and a mid-to-late-round pick, according to sources.

That could be a quarterback like Zach Wilson (BYU) or Justin Fields (Ohio State) with the no.2 overall pick. Darnold is still only 23 years old and is looking to get his career on track after suffering under former Jets head coach Adam Gase.

  Jets | Jamison Crowder a cut candidate?    Wed Feb 17, 10:30 PM

New York Jets WR Jamison Crowder has a team-high $11.4 million cap charge in 2021, and it 'wouldn't be a surprise' if general manager Joe Douglas decides to cut Crowder, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Crowder only has $1 million remaining in dead money and that means two things are likely to happen. 1) He will get cut or 2) he will restructure his deal. We'll lean towards 1 here, but you never know if new head coach Robert Saleh will want to keep Crowder on the roster with a lower number.

Footballguys view: New Jets head coach Robert Saleh has a decision to make about Darnold's future with the team. He might be able to get more than some think for the former first-round pick. Darnold has not been awful as a starter but he certainly hasn't played up to his potential.
