  4. Two surprises for me. One who is on the list, and one who is not on the list. Lawrence Cager- "Elite" run routing skills? We would really go from famine to feast in the tight end room, if Cager balls out and earns a spot on the team. Mims- Him not being on this list, after the coaches gushed about how he showed up to camp, is a concern to me. How is an undrafted Cager on this list, but the 2nd round Mims not on this list? Could be the beginning of the end for him. We will wait and see.

  7. Here are 5 players who impressed for the Jets this offseason, including a surprise on O and D Yesterday, 11:07 AM Here are 5 players who impressed for the Jets this offseason, including a surprise on offense and defense Updated: Jun. 21, 2022, 9:23 a.m. | Published: Jun. 21, 2022 By Andy Vasquez | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com The Jets had a busy offseason, adding several key players at important positions. And throughout the offseason program, starting in May with OTAs through mandatory minicamp, we got a glimpse at how it all might fit together. So what does it all mean? Tight ends coach Ron Middleton said it best earlier this month, comparing what we see on the practice field in these early days to players practicing in “pajamas.” We’re not going to really know what it all means until there’s contact. But an offseason can certainly derail a player — Denzel Mims’ 2021 nightmare started long before he stepped on the field in the fall — and it can certainly be a sign of contributions to come — Braxton Berrios was consistently a standout last fall, before a strong season earned him a new deal this offseason. So who stood out for the Jets during OTAs and minicamp? Here are five players that caught our eye . 5. TE Lawrence Cager Cager has been a frequent contributor at wide receiver during the Jets’ offseason since they picked him up as an undrafted free agent in 2020. But after injuries robbed him of the chance to become a consistent contributor in each of the past two years, Cager had his best offseason yet after making a position switch to tight end. Cager’s time at tight end started as an experiment but turned into a legitimate training camp storyline to watch after he earned frequent snaps with the first team this spring. We won’t know if he’s ready for the big-time until Cager has to block in full-contact action during training camp and the preseason, but his route-running is already elite as a tight end and his ability to consistently get open and make plays during the spring bears watching moving forward. 4. WR Garrett Wilson The Jets’ No. 10 overall pick was quiet early in the offseason program but had a nice finish with some difficult catches during minicamp. But what really stood out at this early stage in his career is Wilson’s versatility and understanding of the offense. He already proved in college that he can be productive out of the slot and from the outside, and he was able to line up at both spots and make plays this spring. He also impressed teammates with his approach, including one proven veteran: “Dude’s special,” Corey Davis said of Wilson late in OTAs. “Dude is real special. He has crazy routes, crazy hands and he’s really focused. He’s a guy that’s locked in and asking questions and trying to get better.” 3. S Ashtyn Davis Injuries forced Davis into important action in 2021, and it wasn’t exactly an encouraging season for the 2020 third-round pick as he struggled in coverage and in the run game, leaving his future role on the team in question. But Davis appeared to make some strides this offseason with several big plays on the practice field, including an impressive one-handed interception in the final days of OTAs. Davis is only 25 years old and has the physical tools to be successful in this league — and has shown some glimpses of that potential with two interceptions last season. There is still time for him to become the player the Jets they thought they were drafting, but he’ll have to continue showing it during training camp and the preseason for him to earn a meaningful role this fall. 2. CB Sauce Gardner The bar is obviously very high for Gardner, the No. 4 overall pick and the first defensive back selected by the Jets with a top-five pick in the NFL Draft. Gardner wasn’t perfect during OTAs and minicamp; Corey Davis and Elijah Moore got the best of him on more than one occasion. But he showed an attention to detail and a confidence that impressed his teammates and coaches. “He doesn’t repeat errors,” defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich said. “He’s a guy that is so hungry to learn. If he gets beat, most of the time he just figure it out on his own because he has such a good football brain, and a thirst for the game and a thirst to get better and learn and grow.” And Gardner showed that, saving his strongest performance for late in minicamp when he got the best of Zach Wilson and the defense near the end of a practice with a pass break-up in 11-on-11 drills and a red zone interception in seven-on-seven. 1. WR Jeff Smith There’s always one unexpected player who stands out during the early part of the offseason, and this year it was definitely Smith. He had the most productive offseason program of any offensive player, showing of a great connection with his young quarterback and making big plays in seemingly every practice. His best day came on the final day of minicamp, when Wilson continued to find him for big plays including a wonderful over-the-shoulder catch at a dead sprint after beating cornerback Bryce Hall. Smith was already a favorite to make the roster because of his ability as a gunner on special teams. But he’s never developed into a consistent offensive option in his three seasons with the Jets (26 catches for 296 yards and no touchdowns since 2019). Could that be about to change? It’s not a crazy thought after this offseason.

  10. Wouldn't be surprised if Geno was a much better player at this point. Said a few years ago that he should go to Canada to refine his game because he had some workable traits. It's possible that several years on the bench behind some good QB's did him some good.

  11. “I’ll tell you not Baker Mayfield,” Wright told I Am Athlete Tonight on SiriusXM. “Not Drew Lock. We ain’t gonna play those games. I’m team Geno all day.” Wright, who played for the Seahawks while Smith served as the clear backup to Russell Wilson, explained the basis for his belief. “Geno was good,” Wright said. “He was scout team quarterback. The dude has a cannon for an arm. He’s intellectual, you know, having those two-minute drills during practice throughout the week, the man can play. Just trust him, just trust Geno. And what I said was whoever you decide to be your starting quarterback, the other guy has got to leave. You cannot have both those guys in the building throughout the season. Because what’s gonna happen? Let’s say game three or four they’re not playing as well. What are the fans gonna do? . . ‘Put the backup in.’ And so to hell with all that, whoever’s the starting quarterback, the other guy, you’ve got to trade him or cut him.” Smith played well last year after Wilson suffered a finger injury. And it feels as if coach Pete Carroll would like nothing more than to show that he can be competitive with the former understudy to Wilson, who forced his way out after a couple of seasons of frustration. The expectations are low, both for Smith and the Seahawks. That could be a key ingredient in what could become a surprisingly good season.

  14. They just need to do 2 big power conferences, expand the playoffs, put some structure around NIL and call it a day. 48 total, 24 teams a conference, 12 team divisions, salary cap of sorts, winners of conference make playoff with 4 others to be decided upon by committee or whatever. It's the only way there will be parody and it's not the same teams over and over again in the playoffs.

  18. I’ve listened to almost all the video interviews up on the Jets app and am really impressed with the guys in the team. There is an alignment to how they all talk about the team, goals, what have to do, where they are today, where they want to be. They are very easy to root for. Laken, AVT, rooks, DJ…I can go on. There’s really something brewing with this group. And interesting how they talk about Zach. He flew all over the country to meet his WRs (TN, FL, CA) and is at TEU now. That’s leadership and they all recognize it. We’re going to win games, be easy to root for. This is getting good…

  21. Yup. And too many fans confusing "this reporters opinion of X" with the actual Coaching staff's opinion of X. I know we're all high strung, years of suckitude and this exciting new young roster makes us so, but everyone really should chill out for a few weeks, and not read so much into some hack reporters opinions of this or that. We will all be excited to see for ourselves what this staff thinks of this roster come camp and preseason.

  22. Get the Paxlovid pills, especially if you're old. I wasn't bad but it literally fixed everything for me in a day. It's 3 pills twice a day for 5 days. Much better to start in the first days of symptoms. Not to minimize but the good news is these variants are only killing about 300 people a day compared to around 4000 at its peak. Most are elderly, unvaxed, and medically compromised.

  24. Geno was exactly Geno last year, no difference at all than when he was here and will always be. Has a very good nfl arm can make all the throws, has decent mobility, knows the playbook, has some good drives. Has utterly awful pocket awareness and presence, can never feel the rush coming. Always makes the worst bonehead plays at exactly the worst time of the game.

  25. I've been a divorce attorney in New Jersey (its not the only area I practice) since 2006, so hopefully this can be helpful: 1. Divorce is an extraordinarily difficult process for people and I always advise new clients to at least explore speaking to a therapist. Personally, I've been going to a therapist for a few years and it helps. If therapy isn't your thing, try working out, meditating, etc. anything you can do to deal with the extraordinary stress you are going to be dealing with. 2. https://www.nj.com/politics/2022/06/nj-judge-shortage-reaching-crisis-level-with-huge-delays-for-thousands-this-is-catastrophic.html What is happening in New Jersey with the shortage of judges is an atrocity. In Hudson County, I have people that can't even schedule a date to enter their divorce because of the lack of staffing. 3. I'm a believer in mediation. It isn't always going to work, but I think it is important for the parties to get the perspective of a neutral third party so that your settlement expectations can be more realistic. The trick is to get a good mediator that will move the parties towards a settlement instead of just serving as a messenger back and forth between the parties.

  30. Geno was actually good last year but came up short in a couple game winning chances. I would think he gets the nod over Lock. People are expecting Wilson to be a monster in Denver but I am not sure I see it. Teams are getting better and better at neutralizing him.

  36. I have been screaming this from the rafters for months now. The Jets did nothing to address the linebacking group, and to me, this was a weakness from last season. It's like everything got upgraded with the exception of the linebackers.

  40. No, i disagree, Our existing D had more supposed impact vets to start, we draft like 5 guys last year on d, then . Then used our top pick on D this year and two more picks on rushers, we invested in FA big on D. Our D should be way ahead of the offense, if it isn;t coaching is to blame.
