  1. Coming off of a 5 and 11 season, there wasn’t much doubt which direction the Jets were headed. The moves so far this off season confirm what everyone suspected; the Jets are in full rebuilding mode. Earlier this week veterans Nick Folk and Breno Giacomini were released. The Jets continued the purge today by announcing that 11 year veteran center Nick Mangold has been released. The former first-round pick was extremely durable during his 11 seasons. He battled an ankle injury in 2016, which limited him to 8 games. In the 10 seasons before that he played in (and started) 156 games. That means he only missed 4 games in his first ten seasons, an incredible run for someone playing such a physical position. According to NJ.com this move saves the Jets over 9 million against the salary cap. “Decisions of this magnitude are always difficult, but even more so with someone like Nick who has meant so much to this organization,” said GM Mike Maccagnan. “We appreciate not just his on-field contributions, but the imprint that his mentality and approach to the game leaves on this team.” Off the field Nick Mangold was one of the hardest working Jets the team has had in recent years. If there was a charity event, it always seemed like he was there with a smile on his face, and he was always laughing and engaging with Jets fans. Here is Nick Mangold’s statement from Twitter.

  2. The NFL announced the compensatory picks for the upcoming NFL draft. The Jets have gained an extra 3rd round pick, 107th overall. A total of 32 compensatory choices in the 2017 NFL Draft have been awarded to 16 teams, the NFL announced today. Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. The compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost. Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula. The Collective Bargaining Agreement limits the number of compensatory selections to the number of clubs then in the League (32). This year, four clubs: the Los Angeles Rams (one pick), the Green Bay Packers (one pick), the Pittsburgh Steelers (two picks), and the Arizona Cardinals (three picks) qualified for compensatory selections under the net loss formula, but will not receive those picks because the final numerical values of the CFAs who were lost by those clubs ranked 33rd through 39th among the final numerical values of all compensatory selections. Each of those four clubs will receive compensatory selections for other CFAs lost whose final numerical values ranked within the top 32. Compensatory picks may be traded this year. A rule change approved by clubs in 2015 permits compensatory draft picks to be traded beginning in 2017. NEW YORK JETS Lost: Davis, Demario; Harrison, Damon; Ivory, Chris Gained: Forte, Matt; McLendon, Steve The following 2017 compensatory draft picks have been determined by the NFL Management Council for the 2017 NFL Draft, which will be held on April 27-29 in Philadelphia: Round Round Choice/ Overall Selection Team 3 33-97 Miami 3 34-98 Carolina 3 35-99 Baltimore 3 36-100 Los Angeles Rams 3 37-101 Denver 3 38-102 Seattle 3 39-103 Cleveland 3 40-104 Kansas City 3 41-105 Pittsburgh 3 42-106 Seattle 3 43-107 New York Jets 4 32-138 Cincinnati 4 33-139 Cleveland 4 35-141* Los Angeles Rams 4 36-142 Cleveland 4 37-143 San Francisco 4 38-144 Indianapolis 5 33-178 Cincinnati 5 34-179 Denver 5 35-180 Miami 5 36-181 Arizona 5 37-182 Kansas City 5 38-183 Cleveland 5 39-184 Green Bay 5 40-185 New England 5 41-186 Miami 6 33-218 Kansas City 6 34-219 Cincinnati 6 35-220 Kansas City 7 33-253 Cincinnati 7 34-254 Denver 7 35-255 Denver Click here to read the full story...
  3. The NY Jets have announced that they have released kicker Nick Folk and RT Breno Giacomini. Chris Lopresti is reporting that these moves free up 7.5 million against the salary cap. Nick Folk, who is 32, is entering his 11th year in the league. He spent the last 7 years with the Jets. The Jets have released K Nick Folk, who ranks No. 2 on the franchise’s all-time points list with 729. “It’s a sad day, but that’s the business side of things,” Folk said as he finished cleaning out his locker at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center this afternoon. “I had a great seven years here. I think the only thing that would’ve topped it off would’e been a couple of Super Bowl wins. “There’s been a great group of guys in this locker room from 2010 till now. I can’t thank Mike Tannenbaum, Rex [Ryan], John Idzik, Todd [Bowles] and Mike Maccagnan enough for keeping me around for seven years. This was our second home. It’s been a lot of fun and my wife and I have enjoyed every minute of it.” Giacomini made 32 starts for the Jets his first two years with the team. He was hurt most of last year and only played in 5 games due to his back injury. Click here to read the full story...
  4. By Glenn Naughton Last season JetNation.com resisted the temptation to do a Jets mock draft every twenty or thirty minutes as some sites seem to do, and we published just one in the days leading up to the draft. This season, we’ll take a stab at one pre-combine mock, and one post-combine mock. Last year’s mock draft, which you can find here, missed the mark on all but one player, Juston Burris, who we thought would still be around much later in the draft (7th round), than where the Jets actually chose him with the 20th pick in round 4. So with last season’s swings and misses behind us, armed with more information that last year, we bring to you, JetNation.com’s first mock draft of the 2017 offseason. ROUND 1: FS Malik Hooker, 6′ 2” 205, Ohio State University: Remember, this a pre-combine mock draft, so if any prediction will change between now and the draft, it’s the first round pick, where the Jets would love to snag a quarterback if one emerges during the pre-draft process. There’s also the possibility that the Jets sign a veteran free agent such as Mike Glennon or Tyrod Taylor, should he shake loose in Buffalo, filling the void at QB. For now, we’re going to assume that Mike Maccagnan goes with the best player available with the sixth pick as he did years ago with Leonard Williams, and that player could very well be Malik Hooker. Hooker didn’t see the filed very much at Ohio State until last season when he intercepted 7 passes, returning 3 for touchdowns. Clearly a playmaker on rise. Hooker consistently showed excellent instincts and break on the ball. Right now, the Jets secondary is an absolute disaster and the re-build of that unit has to be among Maccagnan’s top-3 priorities this offseason. Garrett Bolles has shown excellent agility and tenacity in his time at Utah. ROUND 2: OT Garrett Bolles, 6′ 5” 296, Utah If Bolles impresses teams at the combine during his workouts and interviews, he could vault himself into the first round, but if he’s there for the Jets, he should be the pick. Along with quarterback and the secondary, left tackle should round out Maccagnan’s top-3 priorities, and Bolles is a physically gifted player who shows excellent agility and tenacity at the point of attack and beyond. Several outlets have reported Bolles’ several run-ins with the law early in his career, but he took a couple of seasons away from football and seems to have matured since getting married and having a child. The biggest knock on Bolles might be his age (24), but that’s not something that would prevent him from playing a decade or so of quality football in the NFL. His agility and tenacity would be a welcome addition. ROUND 3: C Ethan Pocic, 6′ 6” 307, LSU As admirably as Wesley Johnson filled in for the injured Nick Mangold last season, the Jets still need to get better at the pivot and Pocic would allow them to do just that. Like Bolles, Pocic shows excellent intensity, plays with a mean streak and has the physical tools to play multiple positions, having lined up at right guard for nine games with LSU. Bolles and Pocic could complete the team’s youth movement up front, with Brandon Shell, who was drafted last season, being the early favorite to win the right tackle job next year. If Pocic is off the board here, Baylor center Kyle Fuller is the name on the Jets draft card. Round 4 (Comp pick): CB Ahkello Witherspoon, 6′ 2” 195, Colorado Continuing to address their beleaguered secondary, the Jets snag a player whose stock rose steadily throughout the course of the 2016 college season. At 6′ 3”, Witherspoon will stand out in any secondary.college season. Just a few short months ago, Witherspoon carried a projected 7th round grade from CBSSports.com, but his stellar play (26.5% comp pct allowed) has him currently listed as a 4th round projection. According to NFL.com, Witherspoon has strong footwork as a result of playing a lot of soccer in his youth, which will help him match up with some of the quick-footed receivers he’ll face at the pro level. Being a 6′ 2” cornerback won’t hurt his case either. Round 5: TE Adam Shaheen, 6′ 5” 277, Ashland A small school product out of Ashaland, Shaheen put up big numbers in college, catching a record setting 70 passes to go along with 10 touchdowns. With a lack of playing time against big-time programs, Shaheen will likely be overwhelmed early on in the NFL, but if he puts in the time and effort, he has the physical tools to be a legitimate weapon for any offense. Per NFL.com, one scout had this to say when asked about Shaheen: “I watched him for two games and turned the tape off because I want to see him live in Indy before I develop any more of an opinion of him. I saw some things that has me very excited.” – AFC pro personnel director The gaping hole at the Jets currently have at tight end makes the position another priority, and Shaheen could be the player to fill a void that’s been present for much of the past decade. Round 6: OLB Ryan Anderson, 6′ 2” 258, Alabama New Jets linebackers coach Kevin Greene will likely have the opportunity to develop some young outside ‘backers who have proven they can get to the quarterback, so a player like Anderson is a good candidate. A disciplined player who appeared in 44 games for Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide, Anderson logged 19 sacks and 39.5 tackles for loss and six forced fumbles. Expect that production to be placed under the microscope by skeptics who site a stacked Alabama defense that will often leave pass-rushers being blocked one-on-one. Much like Greene, Anderson plays with a high motor and has the pedigree to succeed as a pro. Ryan Anderson has the discipline and pedigree to become a solid pro. Round 7: WR Fred Ross, 6′ 2” 207, Mississippi State More offense for the Jets who may be looking to move on from either Brandon Marshall or Eric Decker, or both. There is some good young talent at the position with Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson, Charone Peake, Jalin Marshall and Devin Smith, but only Enunwa has proven that he can play in the pro’s. Ross would give the Jets a taller target who has displayed incredible hands at times and who also has experience as a punt returner (38-315-8.3). Mississippi Sate used Ross primarily out of the slot, but he was also asked to line up outside over the course of his career. He would give the Jets another versatile young receiver to compete for playing time while potentially filling a void at punt returner. So there you have it. Between now and draft day, there will be risers and fallers as interviews, medical reports and workouts may change the expectations for a slew of prospects, and that’s when we’ll rack and stack them again to make our best effort to get inside the heads of Gang Green’s brain trust.

  5. The NFL combine is a week away. The NFL Draft is over a month away. What we have right now is a lot of New York Jets draft talk. The Jets have the 6th overall pick this year and there is no shortage of opinions on what they should do on draft day. Be sure to check out our NY Jets Draft Forum for the latest discussions. Should the Jets trade down in the 2017 draft? Here is a breakdown of QB Pat Mahomes. Keeping with the QB theme, here is some game film on Mitch Trubisky. Should the Jets take running back Leonard Fournette at #6? Click here to read the full story...
  6. By Glenn Naughton Following a widely reported street altercation that reportedly left two men temporarily unconscious, one of which suffered an orbital fracture, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has turned himself in to Pittsburgh police. Coming off of the worst season of his pro career, the Jets were likely looking to part ways with Revis and may now have the ammunition to recoup the $6 million he was guaranteed for 2017.

  7. Darrelle Revis had a disappointing season on the field in 2016. His on the field problems might be the least of his worries, he was charged with four first-degree criminal felonies and one misdemeanor on Thursday. STATEMENT BY BLAINE JONES LAW, Representing Darrelle Revis: Mr. Revis came home to Pittsburgh this past weekend to visit family and friends. During that time Mr. Revis went by a location in the Southside that he is in the process of developing. Mr. Revis was physically assaulted while at that location by a group of at least 5 people. Mr. Revis feared for his safety and retreated from the aggressors. Mr. Revis was not arrested after this incident. Mr. Revis sought medical attention as a result of the aforementioned attack. That statement was made before the criminal charges were filed. Connor Hughes gives this update: According to Jones, Revis “was 1,000 percent the victim” after being assaulted by a “heavily intoxicated man” who shoulder-checked him. After failing to dissolve the situation, Revis turned to walk away. At this time, per Jones, several people in the man’s group pursued Revis, who defended himself before leaving the scene. The Pittsburgh Police paint a far different picture of the event. Here’s their official statement: On Sunday, February 12 at approximately 2:43 a.m., Zone 3 Officers were dispatched to the intersection of S. 23rd and E. Carson streets for a report that two males had been knocked unconscious. According to the investigation, a 22-year-old male from Kittanning was walking along E. Carson Street when he spotted a male who resembled Aliquippa native Darrell Revis, a cornerback in the NFL. He asked if the man was Darrell Revis and he confirmed that he was. The male began recording the interaction on his cellphone and continued following Revis. At some point, Revis snatched the cellphone away and attempted to delete the video. Another 21-year-old male from Ross Township attempted to help the 22-year-old retrieve the cellphone. Revis then tossed the phone onto the roadway. A verbal argument followed. A male came to assist Revis. Both the 22-year-old and the 21-year-old state they were punched then remember waking up to talk to police. Witnesses state the two were unconscious for about 10 minutes. We live in an age where everyone wants to rush to judgement. We weren’t there, so we are going to let this one play out. It is definitely an unfortunate situation and we hope all the injured parties are okay. Visit our forums to read more about Darrelle Revis getting arrested. Click here to read the full story...

  9. By Glenn Naughton In recent days and weeks there has been some speculation regarding the Jets and the possibility of exercising their option on left tackle Ryan Clady. Now, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter, the team will do no such thing. Not extending Clady isn’t the end of the world, but it removes a veteran from the equation in trying to fill what is argualby Gang Green’s second most pressing need with quarterback topping the list (as usual). Clady will have spent just one season in Green and White and missed roughly half of that when he was placed on injured reserved after being pulled from his final game as a Jet in week 9.

  10. Ryan Fitzpatrick had an amazing year in 2015 for the Jets. 2016 was another story; one that Jets fans would love to forget. The process of forgetting 2016 has begun since Ryan Fitzpatrick is officially no longer a Jet. His contract automatically became void 5 days after the Super Bowl, all that is left is a cap hit for 2017 as the spread his contract over two seasons. Here are some other Jets rumors while we wait for free agency to begin in a few weeks: Jets want Tyrod Taylor, not Jay Cutler. Could Ryan Clady be back with the Jets next season? Should the Jets trade Sheldon Richardson? Brandon Marshall spoke about Christian Hackenberg. Also, he sure to check out our NY Jets 2017 Off-Season Activity Thread which has every move listed.

  12. By Glenn Naughton Recently, NFL insider Jason La Canfora sent out a tweet claiming that the Jets are still interested in retaining offensive tackle Ryan Clady at a reduced rate next season, rather than pay him the $10 million he is scheduled to make for 2017. Far from the player he once was as a 3-time All-Pro in Denver, Clady has battled serious injuries over the course of the past four years, forcing him to miss 37 games in that time. Prior to the 2013 season, durability wasn’t an issue as Clady started 80 consecutive contests. Despite the injuries in recent years, Clady still has some value to the Jets. With no other established veteran left tackles on the roster, a team-friendly re-negotiation is a prudent move by GM Mike Maccagnan who will probably still draft a left tackle to step in for Clady when his deal expires, or in the likely event he misses time due to injury. Ben Ijalana took over for the inured Clady over the season’s second half. As preposterous as it may seem to entertain the notion of bringing back a player who has spent as much time on the shelf as Clady, just imagine how bad it would look should Gang Green find themselves getting even semi-quality quarterback play from either of their two young signal callers (Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty) or a potential draft pick/free agent addition if they’re injured or unable to continue to grow due to regular breakdowns in pass protection. Clady’s possible return was a topic discussed at length by Jets fans right here on our forums and many seem to get it, as does Maccagnan. Bringing the veteran back in to the fold on an incentive-laden deal based on playing time would significantly reduce his cap number while giving the Jets O-line a proven veteran to protect their quarterback’s blind side while playing a role in bringing along a potential replacement that the team is likely to bring in. All that’s left now, is for the two sides to come up with a fair number to make a move that makes perfect sense. Click here to read the full story...
  13. By Glenn Naughton Still looking to add some depth on their offensive line, the Jets announced the signing of former Houston Texans guard/offensive tackle Jeff Adams. Adams, a six-year veteran, is a University of Columbia product who has played in just four pro games (2 starts) for the Houston Texans. However, the 6′ 7”, 305 pounder has battled knee injuries for much of his career, most recently forcing him to miss weeks 3-17 of the 2015 season before spending 2016 on the Texans practice squad. Having bounced around on several different practice squads, the Jets official site says his stop with Gang Green will make the Jets Adams’ sixth team in as many pro seasons as he also spent time with Dallas, Cincinnati, Miami and Tennessee before going to Houston. Adams intrigued the Jets as far back as 2012 when they had him in for a pre-draft workout, but the big man went unpicked before signing with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent.

  14. We mentioned it the other day and the Jets made it official today, Jeremy Bates is the new QB coach. Bates, 40, the son of former long-time NFL and college coach Jim Bates, held the QBs coach title on the Jets once before, under Herm Edwards for the 2005 season, when he worked with Chad Pennington, Vinny Testaverde, Jay Fiedler, Brooks Bollinger and current Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury. With this move, not only has Bates returned to the Green & White to work with the Jets’ signalcallers but he’s also reunited with John Morton, signed as the Jets’ offensive coordinator last week. At Southern California in 2009, then-Trojans coach Pete Carroll brought Bates in as assistant head coach/offense to work with Morton, Carroll’s new OC. A few other coaching moves were announced as well. The Jets continued to fill out their offensive staff, announcing the hirings of offensive assistant/assistant quarterbacks coach Mick Lombardi (pictured above) and offensive assistant Jason Vrable. The team also made an addition to their strength staff as Joe Giacobbe will serve as an assistant strength and conditioning coach to Justus Galac. Here is some more information on Jeremy Bates from Glenn Naughton’s original post. Bates called plays for Seattle for one season under Pete Carroll before being fired after the 2010 season. Bates last worked as the quarterbacks coach for the Chicago Bears in 2009 and has also had stops in Denver, Tampa Bay and with the Jets as their quarterbacks coach in 2005. The list of quarterbacks Bates has worked with include Chad Pennington, Vinny Testaverde, Brooks Bollinger, Jay Cutler, Patrick Ramsey. Click here to read the full story...
