  Jets | Keanu Neal may be FA target    Sun Jan 24, 12:35 PM

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent FS Keanu Neal may be a target for the New York Jets during free agency, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: The Falcons probably can't afford Neal, so he should draw a huge payday even though he missed most of two of the first five seasons of his career.

  Jets | Deshaun Watson reportedly prefers NYJ    Sat Jan 23, 01:51 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson reportedly said earlier this week that the New York Jets are his top preference among the teams he'd like to be traded to because of their recent hiring of head coach Robert Saleh, according to a report Saturday, Jan. 23, from the Miami Herald.

Footballguys view: Saleh was considered by some to be the 'gem' of the potential head-coaching candidates that were out there. Watson has a no-trade clause so he will get to choose the team he wants to be traded to. We'll see if the Jets in fact put together a blockbuster deal, likely to include Sam Darnold, for Watson at some point this offseason.

  Jets | Coach optimistic about Sam Darnold    Sun Jan 17, 12:51 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold's status with the team is uncertain, but head coach Robert Saleh believes Darnold has some untapped potential after watching tape on him.

Footballguys view: Darnold did not play up to expectations under former head coach Adam Gase. It appears like he's going to get a chance to turn things around this year under the Jets new regime.

  Jets | Sam Darnold likely to return    Fri Jan 15, 02:11 AM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold is likely to be the team's starting quarterback next season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who said he would be 'surprised' if Darnold was not the team's Week 1 starter.

Footballguys view: The Jets have the no.2 overall pick so they can get some much-needed help on the offensive line with Oregon OT Penei Sewell. Better protection for Darnold and a better direction under new head coach Robert Saleh should lead to better numbers from the passing game.

  Jets | Sam Darnold could still be QB1 in 2021    Mon Jan 11, 01:36 AM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold is viewed internally as 'good enough to build around,' in the opinion of ESPN's Todd McShay, who said that GM Joe Douglas is unlikely to draft a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft.

Footballguys view: According to PFF, Darnold faced the highest pressure rate of any quarterback in the NFL this season. It would be interesting to see what Darnold would look like under a new head coach and with better protection around him. It might be too early to give up on the former top-5 pick.

  Jets | Frank Gore open to playing    Tue Jan 5, 09:41 AM

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Frank Gore said he's open to playing in 2021 in the right situation.

Footballguys view: We hope to see Gore back in the NFL next season. He can still play and still produce as a battering ram who plays running back. It would be cool to see Gore play long enough for his son, Frank Gore Jr., make it to the NFL in a couple of years.

  Jets | NYJ ends up season on negative note    Sun Jan 3, 05:19 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 23-of-34 passes for 266 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 17 against the New England Patriots. RB Josh Adams led the way with 11 runs for 47 yards and a score, while RB Ty Johnson ran 11 times for 45 yards. WR Breshad Perriman led the way with 84 yards on three receptions, while WR Jamison Crowder ended up with four receptions for 31 yards on his four targets. WR Braxton Berrios rushed twice for 16 yards and had three catches for 20 yards. WR Denzel Mims had just one grab for 15 yards on two targets. S Marcus Maye ended his season with 10 tackles, including one for loss.

Footballguys view: The Jets will be in the market for a new head coach, and maybe a new quarterback since they have the #2 pick. Sam Darnold's fate will be one of the most compelling stories of the offseason.

He's set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
