Geno Smith - QBPosted 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 - QBPosted 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 - CBPosted 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 - DEPosted 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 - QBPosted 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 - WRPosted 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 - RBPosted 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 - TEPosted 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.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 4/1/16 12:26am ET
Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) and the New York Jets still aren't close on a new deal. The Jets would like to get a deal done by April 18, when the first phase of their offseason program begins.
Huddle Up: This remains the most logical fit -- for both sides -- but the 34-year-old Fitzpatrick is still holding out of cashing in big time in the crazy league QB market, and the Jets are trying to wait him out. The Broncos appear to be the only other team that might get involved. Stay tuned ...
Stevan Ridley - RBPosted 4/1/16 7:15pm ET
Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (Jets) announced Friday, April 1, that he's signing with the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Ridley was a non-factor with the Jets last season, rushing for 90 yards on 36 carries, and now he'll compete with Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick for RB reps behind Ameer Adullah.
Stevan Ridley - RBPosted 3/29/16 1:56pm ET
Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (Jets) will visit the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, March 29.
Huddle Up: Ridley has gone from 1,263 yards and 12 rushing TDs in 2012 to 90 and none last season as a Jets reserve following his 2014 knee injury. The Lions have an obvious RB need, but Ridley will have to show he's closer to his 2012 form than he has in recent seasons.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 3/22/16 10:23am ET
The New York Jets have no sense of urgency in contract talks to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to owner Woody Johnson. Fitzpatrick could miss the entire offseason program because of his familiarity with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's offense. General manager Mike Maccagnan said QB Geno Smith is a 'definite possibility' as a replacement if Fitzpatrick doesn't return.
Huddle Up: With the Broncos signing Mark Sanchez there's less likelihood Denver makes a run at Fitzpatrick, so the Jets can take their time. Fitz is a veteran, and while his involvement in the offseason program would be a plus it's not a necessity. Nothing wrong with a little offseason drama in New York City.
Darrelle Revis - CBPosted 3/17/16 4:20pm ET
New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (wrist) had surgery to fix a torn ligament in his right wrist Thursday, March 17. He's expected to be in a hard cast for two to three months and will likely miss offseason training activities. However, Revis is expected to be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: A little puzzling as to why Revis waited this long to undergo the procedure, but all will be fine if he's back in time for training camp.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 3/17/16 9:54pm ET
Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has not made any progress in contract talks with the New York Jets, according to a source.
Huddle Up: It's a pure waiting game now, but Fitzpatrick is running short of options as other teams haven't shown much interest at all in meeting his contact demands.
Kellen Davis - TEPosted 3/15/16 10:17am ET
New York Jets TE Kellen Davis re-signed to a one-year deal Monday, March 14, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Davis will compete with Jace Amaro for what limited looks the tight end role offers in the at-present quarterback-less Jets offense. Nothing in that sentence suggests a fantasy helper.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 3/15/16 10:17am ET
The New York Jets are not close to re-signing QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, and they are offering 'high-end backup, low-end starter' money, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.
Huddle Up: With the quarterback market wafer-thin it seems the Jets are playing with fire low-balling Fitzpatrick; his connection with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker last season kept the Jets in contention and made the passing offense fantasy-relevant for the first time in a long time.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 3/13/16 2:47pm ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he doesn't want to see free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) in 'another jersey.'
Huddle Up: And why would he after enjoying a career year with 109 receptions for 1,502 yards and 14 TDs? Good news for Marshall, though, in the meantime as the other potential teams interested in Fitzpatrick -- namely the Broncos and Browns -- seem to be focused on other options, leaving the Jets and Fitzpatrick to work out the $$$.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 3/11/16 6:37pm ET
The Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Rams aren't looking to make a significant investment toward free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets), and the Broncos effectively ended their pursuit of him by trading for QB Mark Sanchez. The New York Jets still prefer to re-sign Fitzpatrick, but they will not overpay.
Huddle Up: The options -- and almost any leverage -- are dwindling for the 33-year-old Fitzpatrick, who is coming off a career year (3,905 yards, 31 TD passes) last season in N.Y.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 3/10/16 4:15pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon will likely split carries in 2016, according to general manager David Caldwell.
Huddle Up: Ivory totalled 277 touches in 15 games with the Jets last season while Yeldon had 218 in 12 games as a rookie with the Jags, but expect a decrease in both totals, particularly Ivory's.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 3/9/16 8:56am ET
Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Chris Ivory (Jets) agreed to a five-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars that will be worth more than $6 million per season.
Huddle Up: Ivory's per-year pay ranks among the top 10 running backs in the league, which suggests that he'll be at least the lead dog in Jacksonville's running back committee ahead of TJ Yeldon.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 3/9/16 8:56am ET
Free-agent RB Bilal Powell (Jets) has come into focus for the New York Jets, as they have already lost RB Chris Ivory to the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, the Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots are also interested in Powell's services, according league sources.
Huddle Up: Powell came on late last season, and if he stayed in New York would see an uptick in touches as he takes some of Ivory's every-down work and maintains his own third-down duties. Of the other teams mentioned the Patriots are the most intriguing fantasy-wise, with Powell filling the Dion Lewis role.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 3/8/16 9:01am ET
New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory is receiving interest from the Oakland Raiders. The team is looking for a power back to pair with RB Latavius Murray.
Huddle Up: Ivory to Oakland would give the Raiders an intriguing tag-team of backs; it would also significantly damage the fantasy value of both Ivory and Latavious Murray, both of whom benefitted from a high volume of touches last season.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 3/8/16 5:19pm ET
New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory has interest from the San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders, and the Miami Dolphins could also enter the mix.
Huddle Up: Running backs seem to be hotter free-agency commodities this year than in recent seasons, and the soon-to-be 28-year-old Ivory is certainly among that pack coming off his career year (1,070 rushing yards, eight TDs) in N.Y.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 3/8/16 11:19pm ET
Free-agent RB Chris Ivory (Jets) is expected to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars Wednesday, March 9, according to a league source. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Ivory is coming off a career season (1,070 rushing yards, eight TDs) with the Jets, and his arrival in J'ville puts a large dent in the value of second-year back T.J. Yeldon, who had a team-best 218 touches in 12 games as a rookie.
Bilal Powell - RBPosted 2/23/16 9:23am ET
New York Jets impending free-agent RB Bilal Powell has a fan in head coach Todd Bowles, and the team wants to re-sign him.
Huddle Up: The entire Jets backfield hits free agency this offseason, and while Chris Ivory was the lead dog last season it appears he'll be in a different uniform in 2016. Meanwhile, Powell could end up as the Jets' feature back--or at least with a larger share of the workload.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 2/21/16 10:55pm ET
New York Jets impending free-agent RB Chris Ivory and his representatives have spoken with the Jets this offseason, but Ivory is still expected to test the free-agent market. The Jets do want Ivory to return, but they probably won't be able to pay him as much as other prospective teams.
Huddle Up: Fellow RBs Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley also are unrestricted free agents so don't be surprised if the Jets have a new-look backfield next season. Ivory still will only be 28 when next season kicks off but has shown a tendency the last two seasons to tail off as the season wears on.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 2/21/16 10:55pm ET
Even if re-signs with the New York Jets, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could have more depth behind him after the NFL Draft. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News said it would not be surprising if the Jets selected a quarterback at some point in the draft, adding that they wouldn't hesitate to draft a quarterback with their No. 20 overall pick if they were strongly convicted with someone still on the board.
Huddle Up: Look for Fitzpatrick to re-up, leaving 2013 second-round pick Geno Smith as the QB in the most precarious position. Smith has one more year remaining on his rookie deal, but it wouldn't cost the Jets too much ($507K) if he is released.
Kyle Brindza - PKPosted 2/18/16 9:18am ET
New York Jets PK Kyle Brindza (Achilles') suffered a ruptured Achilles' during a workout recently and will presumably miss a chunk of, if not all of 2016.
Huddle Up: So much for the big-legged Brindza competing for a spot on your fantasy roster this season.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - QBPosted 2/4/16 11:07am ET
New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall said he doesn't want the team to acquire San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and wants the team to re-sign impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. 'I don't want Kaepernick,' Marshall said on ESPN's 'First Take.' 'I think he's good. My guy's Fitz,' Marshall explained. 'It's nothing against Kaepernick, but what I'm saying is that I have my quarterbacks and I'm good.'
Huddle Up: Nothing wrong with a wide receiver going to bat for his quarterback. And with Fitz facing free agency, he has to feel pretty good about the team's top target having his back.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 2/2/16 10:00am ET
New York Jets impending free-agent RBs Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley will all be unrestricted free agents this offseason if they are not re-signed.
Huddle Up: That's more than 90 percent of the Jets backfield touches, yards from scrimmage, and RB TDs that could walk away in the offseason. Ivory is already talking about being priced out in New York, so Gang Green may be operating with a different-looking backfield in 2016--or they could let them all go and use the draft to refresh their running game.
