• Brandon Marshall - WR
    Posted 6/22/16 9:47am ET

    New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall will ideally play at 230 pounds throughout the 2016 season, if head coach Todd Bowles has his way. Marshall said he's played at an average of 234 pounds to 235 pounds the last five seasons.

    Huddle Up: Marshall doesn't rely on speed to get open, so five pounds isn't likely to make or break his productivity. However, if the coach says drop five pounds it would certainly behoove any player, even a veteran like Marshall, to shed the weight.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 6/15/16 9:42am ET

    Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) and the New York Jets do not have a 'drop-dead deadline' to get a deal done, according to head coach Todd Bowles. It was reported Monday, June 13, that there had been no progress in contract talks with Fitzpatrick.

    Huddle Up: Today's Fitzpatrick/Jets news, same as yesterday's Fitzpatrick/Jets news in that there is no new Fitzpatrick/Jets news. Same time tomorrow, everybody?

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 6/13/16 11:04am ET

    Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) hasn't made progress on contract talks with the New York Jets, as of Monday, June 13. It's unknown if something will get done before training camp.

    Huddle Up: It's been a while since we had a "no news" update on Fitzpatrick and the Jets... so here you go.

  • Bryce Petty - QB
    Posted 6/5/16 10:56pm ET

    New York Jets QB Bryce Petty has improved from a mental standpoint but has to perform better on the field during training camp, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

    Huddle Up: The 2015 fourth-round pick remains a work in progress, but he projects to be backup behind Geno Smith with Ryan Fitzpatrick still unsigned.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 6/2/16 11:10am ET

    New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is prepared to end his contract stalemate by informing the club he will take a one-year, $12 million guaranteed deal for the 2016 season, a source said Wednesday, June 1. It is the same money with the same guarantee the Jets are offering in the first year of their frontloaded three-year, $24 million proposal that has backup money in the second and third year. If the Jets were to agree to a one-year deal, it would be a $12 million cap hit, and they would need to clear $8.9 million.

    Huddle Up: Like your morning coffee, here's your morning "no news yet" update on Fitzpatrick. It appears the two sides are inching closer, but they can certainly string this along for another couple of weeks--months?--before anything actually happens.

  • Jace Amaro - TE
    Posted 5/31/16 10:21am ET

    New York Jets TE Jace Amaro will have to compete for a roster spot during training camp, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said he has not seen Amaro play since he missed the entire 2015 season.

    Huddle Up: That's a little different from what Amaro was saying last week when he discussed being a big part of the Jets' passing game. Considering that Gang Green tight ends combined for six catches last season, Amaro has plenty to prove--both to Bowles to claim a roster spot and to fantasy owners who struggle to see TE opportunity in the Jets' offense.

  • Eric Decker - WR
    Posted 5/31/16 1:22pm ET

    New York Jets WRs Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall were back at practice for organized team activities Tuesday, May 31, after sitting out the opening week in a show of solidarity for the unsigned QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    Huddle Up: Point made, but we're all still waiting for the two sides to hammer out the details on the inevitable deal.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 5/31/16 4:11pm ET

    Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could spurn the New York Jets to take less money for another team on principle alone, according to team sources. The Jets no longer believe that re-signing Fitzpatrick is inevitable after their contract offer terms became public this weekend.

    Huddle Up: It's hard to figure which team that would be with OTAs already under way across the league, but it's really the only leverage Fitzpatrick has at this point.

  • Devin Smith - WR
    Posted 5/29/16 9:26pm ET

    New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) is considered doubtful to start the regular season and will begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Smith continues to recover from his torn anterior cruciate ligament and subsequent surgery.

    Huddle Up: Health is only one of the issues working against the 2015 second-round pick as the Jets' uncertain QB situation and the two highly productive target monsters (Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker) atop the Jets' depth chart also aren't exactly favorable for the second-year wideout. Keep your Smith expectations to a minimum unless there's a sea change in N.Y.

  • Matt Forte - RB
    Posted 5/29/16 10:04pm ET

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte could line up as a wide receiver in 2016. Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said the Jets need to adjust their system to make fit Forte, including lining him up wide or in the slot at times.

    Huddle Up: Forte matched his career low with 44 catches last season a year after catching a RB-record 102 passes in 2014, but that total should climb back into the 60s in 2016 in his first season in N.Y.

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte could line up as a wide receiver in 2016. Offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said the Jets need to adjust their system to make fit Forte, including lining him up wide or in the slot at times.

  • Eric Decker - WR
    Posted 5/26/16 11:12am ET

    New York Jets WR Eric Decker is skipping organized team activities this week because he is upset that the team has not re-signed free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick at this point, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Both Decker and Brandon Marshall have made it known they want their quarterback back... though if the Jets are unable to bring Fitzpatrick back, missing out on valuable time with the guys likely to replace him might not be Decker's best strategy.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 5/26/16 11:12am ET

    Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has not had contract talks with the New York Jets over the last few weeks, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: So the news is... there's no news yet. But everyone still expects a Jets/Fitz reunion.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 5/26/16 11:12am ET

    New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he's 'hopeful' that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is re-signed by training camp. However, Bowles didn't say he's confident.

    Huddle Up: How many different ways can we say it? The Jets want Fitzpatrick back, Fitzpatrick wants to be back. Get it done already!

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 5/24/16 10:45am ET

    Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) wants to re-sign with the New York Jets. 'I would like to be back,' Fitzpatrick said. He's been in a three-month contract stalemate with the Jets. Fitzpatrick dispelled rumors that he was considering retirement. 'I'm playing,' Fitzpatrick said. 'I'm playing football next year.'

    Huddle Up: You know Fitz is signing with the Jets. I know Fitz is signing with the Jets. The Jets not addressing the quarterback position with much vigor this offseason suggests they think Fitz is signing with them. And it looks like Fitz is beginning to realize the Jets are his best remaining landing spot. So make the deal already! Then we can stop fretting about the potential blow to the fantasy values of Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 5/20/16 12:49pm ET

    The deadline for free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could be sooner than expected. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport posits that the first legitimate deadline is when the Jets' organized team activities start Tuesday, May 24.

    Huddle Up: In the meantime, Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker owners are growing more anxious ...

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 5/18/16 9:19am ET

    Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not close to a contract agreement with the New York Jets, but Jets WR Eric Decker said he expects Fitzpatrick to be the starting quarterback in the first regular season game.

    Huddle Up: Most of the football-watching planet expects Fitz to be the Jets' quarterback, but until it happens the fantasy values of Decker and Brandon Marshall remain in limbo.

  • Muhammad Wilkerson - DE
    Posted 5/17/16 3:36pm ET

    New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson isn't close to a new contract and hasn't signed his franchise tender. He may not report until training camp in July.

    Huddle Up: The Ryan Fitzpatrick situation isn't the only unresolved contract in the Big Apple as the Jets' best defensive player isn't the least bit happy. At the least, though, it will be an interesting couple months in N.Y.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 5/12/16 10:29am ET

    If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is signed Thursday, May 12, or onward by a prospective team, then he will not count against that team's compensatory draft picks.

    Huddle Up: You know how teams love their draft picks, and with compensatory picks eligible to be traded next season there was no way Fitzpatrick was inking a deal before today. Of course, there's no indication a deal is imminent anyway.

  • Christian Hackenberg - QB
    Posted 5/12/16 3:38pm ET

    New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, May 12.

    Huddle Up: Well, there was news on the N.Y. QB signing front, but obviously not of variety Jets Nation -- and the fantasy owners of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker -- were hoping for.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 5/10/16 4:13pm ET

    Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's status remains in limbo with the New York Jets. Owner Woody Johnson said there's no urgency to re-sign Fitzpatrick at this point with training camp still two months away.

    Huddle Up: The game of financial chicken continues, but the alternative options remain limited at best for both sides.

  • Devin Smith - WR
    Posted 5/6/16 3:48pm ET

    New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) may not be ready for the start of the regular season as he continues to recover from anterior cruciate ligament surgery.

    Huddle Up: The speedy 2015 second-round pick was one of several rookie wide receivers who saw their inaugural seasons cut short by injury, but Smith faces more obstacles than the others given his expected recovery time and the dynamic duo of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker currently heading up the N.Y. WR depth chart.

  • Geno Smith - QB
    Posted 5/1/16 2:09pm ET

    New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback when offseason workouts begin, but the team is still looking to re-sign free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

    Huddle Up: Even though the Jets added Christian Hackenberg in the second round, the Penn State QB isn't a serious threat to challenge for immediate playing time and maintains the team's status quo: Listing Smith atop the depth chart while still exchanging contract proposals with Fitzpatrick.

  • Christian Hackenberg - QB
    Posted 4/29/16 9:51pm ET

    The New York Jets selected Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg with the No. 51 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft on Friday, April 29.

    Huddle Up: To the surprise of few and the dismay of some, the Jets made the polarizing Penn State product the fourth QB selected in the draft. Still, Hackenberg is likely to spend his rookie season on the bench with the Jets (eventually) expected to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick.

  • Darrelle Revis - CB
    Posted 4/24/16 8:42pm ET

    New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (wrist) had pins removed from his surgically repaired wrist last week. He still has two months of rehabilitation, however, after having a torn ligament repaired March 17. Revis will miss offseason workouts, but he's still on schedule for the start of the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Everything should wind up working out, but Revis' status in training camp is going to need to be monitored.

  • Muhammad Wilkerson - DE
    Posted 4/17/16 6:07pm ET

    New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) is not expected to report for offseason workouts Monday, April 18. Wilkerson is still rehabbing his broken leg and has not signed his franchise tender offer.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here on several levels. Meanwhile, reports continue to circulate that the Jets are trying to deal Wilkerson, but if nothing materializes, the defensive end will either have to keep angling for a long-term deal, hold out or settle for the $15.7 million he'll earn under the franchise tag.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick - QB
    Posted 4/14/16 3:38pm ET

    The New York Jets haven't made any progress in an attempt to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to owner Woody Johnson. Johnson also said it wasn't imperative that the team bring Fitzpatrick back. 'No, no. I think this is a big team. We've made our statements regarding Ryan Fitzpatrick well-known, and I'll stick with those that we've made,' Johnson said.

    Huddle Up: The staring contest continues in N.Y., but the bad news for Fitzpatrick is that no other teams seemingly are willing at bite on his asking price, either. This is sure to linger for a bit, but the feeling is a deal still gets done and Fitzpatrick is quarterbacking the Jets come Week 1.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR
    Posted 4/10/16 3:31pm ET

    New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall was cleared by a jury Saturday, April 9, in a lawsuit by a woman claiming she was assaulted in a 2012 incident, according to his attorney Harvey Steinberg.

    Huddle Up: Marshall looks as if he's cleared another hurdle from his checkered past, but even with the verdict, the long arm of the NFL might still weigh in.

  • Stevan Ridley - RB
    Posted 4/8/16 5:08pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley said he believes his best years are still ahead of him, and he said he expects to have a similar role to the one he had with the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: The numbers back Ridley up as he's only 27 and only has totaled 130 rushing attempts over the last two years between his 2014 knee injury in New England and his recovery/lack of use last season with the Jets.

  • Jeff Cumberland - TE
    Posted 4/5/16 11:17am ET

    Free-agent TE Jeff Cumberland (Jets) agreed to terms with the San Diego Chargers Monday, April 4, on a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Cumberland is not the replacement for Antonio Gates. He'll handle the blocking portion of tight end duties in San Diego, with negligible fantasy value.
