  New York Jets - Priority News
  News Statistics Roster  
Muhammad Wilkerson - DE Posted 4/17/14 10:40pm et
It is believed the New York Jets have exercised the fifth-year option in DE Muhammad Wilkerson's contract.
Huddle Up: Easy decision for the Jets to lock up their top defensive player for another year. Wilkerson had a career-high 10.5 sacks, 64 tackles and his first pro interception this past season.

Dimitri Patterson - CB Posted 4/1/14 9:54pm et
The New York Jets signed CB Dimitri Patterson on Tuesday, April 1 to a 1-year deal worth $3 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The well-travelled Patterson, who matched his career high with 4 INTs in 6 games last season in Miami, is with his 6th team in 9 seasons and could be in line for a bump in PT with the Jets having parted ways with Antonio Cromartie this offseason.

Mark Sanchez - QB Posted 3/27/14 5:40pm et
Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with QB Mark Sanchez (Jets) Thursday, March 27. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Sanchez, who missed the entire 2013 season due to a preseason shoulder injury, is seemingly in line to back up starter Nick Foles, but for all that's known at the moment, we could be headed for an open competition in training camp. Stay tuned . . .

Geno Smith - QB Posted 3/25/14 2:04pm et
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan indicated that QB Geno Smith will enter offseason practices in the early lead in the quarterback competition between QB Michael Vick, and Smith will work with the first team when practices start next month. However, Ryan isn't ruling out Vick as the Week 1 starter when the season comes. 'It's going to be really interesting to watch that competition unfold. I've said this before -- Geno Smith is going to be hard to beat out,' Ryan said. Ryan also said the team may have personnel packages that include both quarterbacks.
Huddle Up: Another offseason, another QB tussle in Jets camp. To win the job, Smith is going to have to improve, most specifically reducing his AFC QB-high 26 turnovers from last season. At the same time, he only had one 300-yard passing game.

Mark Sanchez - QB Posted 3/21/14 8:32pm et
The New York Jets officially released QB Mark Sanchez Friday, March 21.
Huddle Up: You knew this was coming, and with Michael Vick now officially a Jet it was time to let Sanchez walk.

Mike Goodson - RB Posted 3/20/14 1:41pm et
The New York Jets have restructured the contract of RB Mike Goodson, which has lowered his salary cap figure from $1.9 million to $1.28 million.
Huddle Up: Goodson will get a second season in the Big Apple after being limited to 2 games and 80 yards from scrimmage due to a league disciplinary suspension and a knee injury in 2013.

Mark Sanchez - QB Posted 3/20/14 1:41pm et
The New York Jets have until Monday, March 24, to make a decision on QB Mark Sanchez, who is due a $2 million roster bonus Tuesday, March 25.
Huddle Up: The Sanchez rumors have run the gamut, but it seems like a parting of ways would ultimately be the best scenario for both parties.

Eric Decker - WR Posted 3/13/14 1:53pm et
Updating a previous report, the New York Jets and WR Eric Decker (Broncos) agreed to a five-year, $36.26 million deal Wednesday, March 12. The deal includes $15 million in guaranteed money, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Decker is a quality wideout who has averaged 86 receptions, 1,176 yards and 12 TDs over the past 2 seasons catching passes from Peyton Manning, but now he switches to second-year QB Geno Smith and Jets, whose leading WR (Jeremy Kerley) caught only 43 passes for 523 yards and 3 scores last season. In other words, Decker's fantasy value has taken a decided turn for the worse.

Jeff Cumberland - TE Posted 3/9/14 3:37pm et
The New York Jets have re-signed TE Jeff Cumberland to a three-year deal worth $3.7 million. The deal also includes $1 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Cumberland has been one of the Jets' top pass-catchers over the past 2 seasons, but his 2-year totals of 55 catches, 757 yards and 7 TDs haven't exactly been a boon to fantasy owners.

Santonio Holmes - WR Posted 3/9/14 11:12pm et
New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes is due a $1 million roster bonus Wednesday, March 12.
Huddle Up: There continue to be myriad reports that Holmes' 4-year run with the Jets will soon be over, and if that's going to be the case, expect an announcement on his release to come at any time.

Nick Folk - PK Posted 2/28/14 6:17pm et
The New York Jets placed the franchise tag on PK Nick Folk.
Huddle Up: So the Jets are committing a little over $3 million--the projected kicker tag--to lock up Folk. Because really, that's the key to them fielding a competitive club. Wait, how do you use the sarcasm tags again?

Santonio Holmes - WR Posted 2/27/14 10:44pm et
The New York Jets are expected to cut WR Santonio Holmes soon. There has been no talk of a pay cut.
Huddle Up: After 17 missed games and only 43 receptions over the last 2 injury-plagued seasons, it looks as if Holmes' 4-year run in the Big Apple is over. His time as a semi-reliable fantasy WR is done as well.

Mark Sanchez - QB Posted 2/22/14 8:54pm et
The New York Jets met with the representatives for QB Mark Sanchez Friday, Feb. 22 to discuss his future. While nothing was resolved, the two sides will keep an open line of communication. Sanchez is expected to return to New Jersey next week to rehab at the Jets facility. It is believed a decision will have to be made on Sanchez by March 25. The expectation is that he will ultimately be released.
Huddle Up: Tough to see Sanchez getting another shot in New York. At least one other team has reportedly indicated Sanchez could walk into their facilities and become the starter; now Sanchez and his agent need to identify that team.

Geno Smith - QB Posted 2/20/14 10:11pm et
New York Jets general manager John Idzik said the team would not be opposed to having another quarterback competition this summer between QB Geno Smith and QB Mark Sanchez.
Huddle Up: Cue the circus music -- we could have Smith-Sanchez II playing in the Big Apple's big tent again this training camp. Before that happens though, Sanchez would likely have to take a pay cut as he's scheduled to count $13.1 million against the cap this coming season.

Santonio Holmes - WR Posted 2/17/14 10:00am et
The New York Jets are likely to cut WR Santonio Holmes, which would save the team $8.25 million for 2014. The Jets are thought to have interest in using that money on Pittsburgh Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders or Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin if either is cut by his respective club.
Huddle Up: Holmes' big contract likely prices him out of New York, especially with the Jets still a run-first, defense-oriented squad. They would need to add receivers for Geno Smith to throw to, however; Austin should come relatively cheap, with Sanders a little more pricey. Either would be a welcome addition to the Jets' receiving corps.

Mike Goodson - RB Posted 2/15/14 8:47pm et
The New York Jets could consider releasing RB Mike Goodson because of his off-field issues and a $650,000 roster bonus he is scheduled to receive.
Huddle Up: Chris Ivory looked capable of being the Jets' primary back last season, with Bilal Powell as his backup. Ivory has injury issues, but neither back carries Goodson's off-the-field baggage. The $650K bonus might be enough to convince the Jets he's not worth the trouble.

Kellen Winslow - TE Posted 2/7/14 12:21pm et
New York Jets TE Kellen Winslow Jr. pleaded not guilty to charges of possession of synthetic marijuana.
Huddle Up: Winslow is barely fantasy relevant at this point, and if he's going to run afoul of the league due to off-the-field transgressions he'll fall off the fantasy planet completely.

Stephen Hill - WR Posted 2/4/14 4:40pm et
New York Jets WR Stephen Hill's spot on the roster is not a guarantee, in the opinion of Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. Hill has ended the last two seasons on Injured Reserve.
Huddle Up: The 2012 2nd-round pick has only 45 receptions for 594 yards and 4 TDs in 23 career games and most definitely needs to step up this game to stick around with the Jets, whose No. 1 need is upgrading the offensive play-making corps.

Mark Sanchez - QB Posted 2/2/14 11:30pm et
The New York Jets are expected to release QB Mark Sanchez before he is scheduled to receive a $2 million roster bonus in March.
Huddle Up: Of course, the Jets will try and trade the former first-round pick, but his value decreases the closer it gets to the roster-bonus deadline.

Kellen Winslow - TE Posted 2/1/14 10:08am et
NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said he does not think New York Jets TE Kellen Winslow should be suspended for his arrest in November for alleged possession of synthetic marijuana. Smith said synthetic marijuana is not among the drugs banned under the drug policy.
Huddle Up: Smith certainly has a firm grip on the situation, since technically synthetic marijuana is not on the drug policy. Maybe the NFLPA would be in favor of a lesser punishment, a figurative spanking of Winslow for his transgressions. Either way, Winslow has been a jerk, but the situation doesn't necessarily call for his release.

Mark Sanchez - QB Posted 1/30/14 8:38pm et
Former New York Jets FB Tony Richardson and LB Bart Scott are among the former players that believe QB Mark Sanchez will not be with the Jets next season. 'For Mark and the organization, it's time for a fresh start. He deserves a fresh start. It would be hard to put people in the stands if you go back to the table with Mark,' Richardson said.
Huddle Up: Rex Ryan is returning to the Jets, but don't look for his former starting QB to follow suit. To echo Richardson, it's time for a fresh start for the 2009 first-round pick.

Mark Sanchez - QB Posted 1/22/14 6:49pm et
One coach of a quarterback-needy team believes New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) wouldn't be out of a job long if the Jets cut him this offseason. New York would save $8.3 million of the $13.1 million salary cap figure if they release him. 'We'd take Sanchez,' the coach said. 'He'd be the starter as soon as he walked in the door for us.' Sanchez has been rehabbing his right shoulder in Alabama after having surgery in October.
Huddle Up: It's a QB-needy league, and a healthy Sanchez might actually be an upgrade for more than a few teams. Stop laughing.

Geno Smith - QB Posted 1/18/14 3:00pm et
New York Jets QB Geno Smith was asked to leave an airplane after he did not take off his headphones when he was told to do so by a flight attendant and was considered a threat. It is believed Smith did not take off his headphones initially because he did not hear the request. Smith was questioned by airport police at the gate but was not arrested and no incident report was filed.
Huddle Up: Sounds like much ado about nothing, but because it's Geno Smith it makes the news. Unless Roger Goodell uses this incident to crack down on Beats by Dre, this is a non-story.

Rex Ryan - HC Posted 1/16/14 2:29pm et
The New York Jets agreed to a multi-year contract extension with head coach Rex Ryan on Thursday, Jan. 16, according to league and team sources. Ryan had just one year remaining on his current deal, and his new deal is heavily incentivized based on playoff victories.
Huddle Up: Projected to have the first pick in some preseason circles, the Jets finished a respectable 8-8 this season, but returning to the postseason after a 3-year lull and settling on a QB -- is Geno Smith the answer -- will be key for Ryan.

Nick Folk - PK Posted 12/31/13 11:08am et
New York Jets impending free-agent PK Nick Folk said he would like to re-sign with the Jets but wants to sign a multi-year deal after having a one-year deal each of the previous four seasons.
Huddle Up: NFL kickers tend to be on short leashes, though Folk's solid season might buy him a couple extra years. There's always a need for veteran kickers, and if the Jets aren't willing to give Folk a long-term deal he could knock on a few other doors and likely turn something up.

Stephen Hill - WR Posted 12/31/13 11:08am et
New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (knee) said he does not need surgery on a knee injury he suffered earlier in the season.
Huddle Up: Good news for Hill, as no surgery means no recovery time and frees Hill up to participate in all of the Jets' offseason activities as Gang Green looks to rebuild its passing game from the ground up.

Geno Smith - QB Posted 12/31/13 6:34pm et
New York Jets general manager John Idzik said the team plans to look at quarterbacks in the offseason even though QB Geno Smith started every game this year and improved late in the season. Head coach Rex Ryan stopped short of saying Smith would be the starter heading into training camp next year. 'We're all excited about having Geno as part of the New York Jets,' Idzik said, 'but we will always look to improve any position.' Smith said he has a 'bright future' with the team despite finishing with a league-low passer rating of 66.5 in his rookie season.
Huddle Up: Smith's passing numbers definitely need some work, and maybe putting some better pass-catching talent around him will make the most difference. Smith, though, belongs on fantasy-draft radars because of his rushing ability as he finished eighth among QBs with 366 rushing yards in 2013 and matched Cam Newton with a QB league-high 6 rushing TDs.

Alex Green - RB Posted 12/20/13 12:22pm et
New York Jets RB Alex Green, WR Saalim Hakim and TE Zach Sudfeld could receive more playing time in the last two games of the season because the team wants to evaluate some of their players.
Huddle Up: Green seeing more action is the only situation that might have a fantasy impact, as the Jets' passing game has been so bad few if any fantasy teams have added players like Santonio Holmes or Kellen Winslow--guys who might lose snaps to Hakim and Sudfeld. Green, however, might take some carries off of Chris Ivory's plate, and Ivory is a fringe fantasy option when the matchup is favorable. Lower expectations accordingly.

Santonio Holmes - WR Posted 12/9/13 12:52am et
New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) was able to play 41 snaps in the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders, and he posted three catches for 55 yards. Holmes said Sunday, Dec. 8, that he felt fine.
Huddle Up: It was great to have Holmes on the field for much of the game. If Jeremy Kerley hadn't jumped to catch a touchdown pass in front of him, Holmes might have had a great stat line.

Santonio Holmes - WR Posted 12/5/13 1:37pm et
New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) was participating in positional drills in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: If you're counting on Holmes in the fantasy postseason, we don't need to tell you that things are pretty bleak.
