Geno Smith - QBPosted 2/26/15 1:54am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith may not have big competition for the starting quarterback job, because the team is not committed to selecting a quarterback with the sixth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Jets are committed to make Smith a successful starting quarterback.
Huddle Up: If Marcus Mariota is still on the board at six it will be difficult for the Jets to pass. If they are truly committed to Smith, however, they could certainly entertain offers for that selection from, say, Chip Kelly and the Eagles.
David Harris - LBPosted 2/20/15 5:45pm ET
New York Jets impending free-agent LB David Harris is expected to receive interest from the Chicago Bears if he hits the free-agent market, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Harris, who just turned 31 in January, has had at least 123 total tackles in each of the last three seasons, and is sure to be a hot commodity if he hits the open market.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 2/15/15 9:20pm ET
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson's option was not be exercised, as expected. Johnson will become a free agent.
Huddle Up: Johnson, who turns 30 in September, easily hit career lows with 663 rushing yards and 155 carries last season, and it will be challenging to find a new gig paying decent money given the glut of veteran RBs expected to hit the free-agent market and the exceptionally strong RB draft class entering the league.
Michael Vick - QBPosted 2/14/15 12:03pm ET
New York Jets impending free-agent QB Michael Vick will be allowed to test the free-agent market this offseason, according to a source. The Jets could consider re-signing Vick at some point this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Jets already have Geno Smith, and they may have a shot at either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota in the upcoming draft. Plus, with a new coach and a new offense there's nothing tying Vick to the Jets. Now if he wants to come back as a backup at a reduced salary, the Jets may be interested.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 2/14/15 12:03pm ET
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson is expected to be released in the next few days, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Johnson was more of a contributing player than a feature back for the Jets last season, and with the regime change there's nothing holding him to the team. CJ?K will likely need to find another complementary role, as he's no longer viewed as a feature back in the NFL.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 2/11/15 12:26pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin is expected to be cut by March 19, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. Harvin has a $10.5 million cap number for 2015, and the team would owe the Seattle Seahawks a fourth-round pick if he's on the roster after that date.
Huddle Up: Eventually, no matter how talented you are, if you're a locker room headache you run out of chances. So far Harvin has burned through three teams; looks like we'll get to find out if a fourth team is the charm.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 2/2/15 10:27am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he still hasn't received a definitive answer from head coach Todd Bowles on the team's quarterback situation.
Huddle Up: Don't expect a definitive answer until Bowles has a chance to see not only more film but also his quarterback(s) in person. At best Smith should be looking for an opportunity to compete for the starting gig in New York; he certainly hasn't done enough as a professional to be handed the job.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 1/22/15 10:58pm ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith has a lot of talent and promise, according to new head coach Todd Bowles. At the same time, Bowles acknowledged that the quarterback position is currently an open slate, with Smith and Matt Simms the only quarterbacks currently rostered.
Huddle Up: Certainly look for the Jets to bring a QB or two this offseason -- maybe a free agent and a draft pick -- to give Smith some serious competition for the starting gig. Bowles saw first-hand with the Cards last season how bad QB play can short-circuit a team's season, and he'd rather not relive the anguish in debut year with the Jets.
Chan Gailey - OCPosted 1/20/15 10:19pm ET
Former Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey has been named the new offensive coordinator of the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Gailey, who was the Bills' head coach from 2010-12, has previously been an offensive coordinator with four different NFL teams and will be the Jets' fourth OC in the last five years. The 63-year-old will also bring some much needed experience to the staff of first-time head coach Todd Bowles.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 1/16/15 11:00pm ET
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson, who had just 663 rushing yards this year, is expected to be released this offseason. Johnson is due to make $4 million in 2015.
Huddle Up: Definitely expect Chris Ivory to have a new running mate in the Jets' backfield next season as Johnson's pricetag has outlived his production.
Todd Bowles - HCPosted 1/14/15 12:37pm ET
Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles will be hired by the New York Jets for their head coaching position, a source involved in the process said Tuesday, Jan. 13. He is expected to officially sign a four-year deal Wednesday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Bowles extends the Jets' string of defensive-minded head coaches to six, but while the cupboard is not necessarily bare he doesn't inherit nearly the same level of defensive talent he worked with in Arizona. On the bright side, he's used to trying to overcome lackluster quarterback play.
Chan Gailey - OCPosted 1/14/15 12:37pm ET
Former Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey is expected to be the offensive coordinator with the New York Jets on the new staff of head coach Todd Bowles, a source said.
Huddle Up: Gailey has historically been more of a thrower than a ground and pound guy, which could mean some big changes for the Jets' offensive personnel. On the bright side, Gailey actually had success when forced to use Tyler Thigpen for 11 games so he could certainly squeeze something out of Geno Smith as well.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 12/30/14 2:13am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith made a strong impression on the team's owner with his stellar Week 17 performance against the Miami Dolphins. 'I think he's a young quarterback who in the last five games has gotten much, much better. ...I've got confidence in Geno. I really think he can be good.'
Huddle Up: One big game and now it looks like the Jets' owner will force his new coach and GM to build around Geno. That might take a bite out of the potential talent pool, as most coaches/GMs prefer to base their success on a player of their choosing rather than an existing player with a sketchy track record.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 12/29/14 9:24am ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith set a career high in passing yards (358) and tied his personal best of 3 touchdown passes in a single game with his performance in Week 17 versus the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: What do you think the Vegas odds were of Geno posting a perfect passer rating in Week 17? "Astronomical" barely scratches the surface. And yet there were signs of life for the Jets' sophomore quarterback, enough so that Rex Ryan's replacement might just give Smith a spin in 2015.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 12/29/14 9:24am ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker recorded 10 receptions for 221 yards and a touchdown versus the Miami Dolphins in Week 17. He finished the year with 74 catches, 962 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Huddle Up: It certainly was different than catching passes from Peyton Manning, but Decker established himself in New York and gives Geno Smith and the new coaching staff something to build on in the passing game.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/26/14 7:32pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ribs) said he is confident he will be able to play in the team's Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: The Jets offense is closing out a miserable season against the Dolphins. Harvin will be a WR3/Flex option if he suits up this week.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/25/14 9:11pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle, ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: That's two straight missed days for Harvin, whose status remains very much in doubt for Week 17.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/23/14 7:51pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ribs) has not been ruled out for Week 17, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan did say that if he was a betting man, he'd probably look for another option.
Huddle Up: Unless you're truly desperate, it's best to look elsewhere for Week 17 WR help.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/18/14 2:04pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Harvin was able to get back on the field after sitting out Wednesday, but his status for Sunday is still yet to be determined.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/18/14 11:38pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, but barring a setback, he's expected to play in Week 16 against the New England Patriots. Harvin suffered a third-degree ankle sprain just two weeks ago, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Harvin was limited to a special teams role last week.
Huddle Up: Harvin had a season-best 6-124-1 performance in his last healthy outing in Week 14 and his presence is key for the Jets and prevents the Patriots from focusing on WR Eric Decker.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/11/14 2:44pm ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, but is catching passes from a JUGS machine.
Huddle Up: Following his best outing of the season (6-124-1), Harvin has yet to practice this week and remains a longshot to play Sunday in Tennessee.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 12/9/14 4:14pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (concussion), who has missed the last two games with a concussion, could be cleared to play in Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Check in as the week progresses, but things are looking up for the rookie TE.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/8/14 10:34am ET
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin (ankle) injured his left ankle late in the game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Dec. 7, and he may be out for the remainder of the season pending further tests. Harvin, who left the stadium on crutches, caught six passes for 124 yards against the Vikings.
Huddle Up: Harvin hurt? In other breaking news, taxes are high and the sun came up in the east this morning. Percy was going off against his former team prior to the injury, but it should come as no shock that with high volume usage comes the propensity for the hard-playing yet extremely brittle Harvin to suffer yet another injury.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 12/8/14 8:22pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Percy Harvin has been diagnosed with a low-ankle sprain. Head coach Rex Ryan said it is not looking good for Harvin to play in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Tough timing for Harvin and the Jets as the WR is coming off his best fantasy day (6-124-1) of the season.
Muhammad Wilkerson - DEPosted 12/4/14 2:24pm ET
New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (toe) is making progress in his rehab from a toe injury but will not be able to play in Week 14, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: The Jets' leader in sacks will miss a second straight game, making life easier for Vikings rookie Teddy Bridgewater & Co. on Sunday.
Nick Folk - PKPosted 12/3/14 12:29am ET
New York Jets PK Nick Folk had discomfort in his hip following Monday night's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: A heads-up if your PK is Folk, who missed two of his four attempts Monday night.
Jace Amaro - TEPosted 12/3/14 4:13pm ET
New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (concussion) is not expected to play in Week 14, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: The rookie will miss a second straight game, leaving the Jets' TE duties to Jeff Cumberland and Zach Sudfeld.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 12/2/14 1:13am ET
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson had 17 carries for 105 yards in the team's 16-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 1. His 17 carries were a season high, and he topped 100 yards for his first time with the Jets.
Huddle Up: A clutch performance for those fantasy GMs who rolled the dice Monday night with the player formerly producing as CJ2K, but how many owners this actually benefited is in serious question.
Eric Decker - WRPosted 12/2/14 4:23pm ET
New York Jets WR Eric Decker had just two catches for 18 yards in the team's Week 13 loss to the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 1. Decker has been targeted 10 or more times just four times this year.
Huddle Up: Hey, that's life going from Peyton Manning to the run-heavy Jets, who put the ball in the air only 13 times Monday night. They'll be better days for Decker, but, overall, you can't say you weren't warned.
Geno Smith - QBPosted 12/2/14 9:04pm ET
New York Jets QB Geno Smith will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Rex Ryan, despite his dismal and mundane performance Monday night against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Smith or any other QB is definitely far from fantasy usable if a team is only going to call 15 passing plays and 49 runs as the Jets did Monday night.
