  2. If the Jets took one thing away from this past season other than the importance of quality quarterback play, it should have been how fast things can spin out of control without depth along the offensive line. Beleaguered by injuries, the Jets seemed to field a different offensive line combo every week in 2022. Even if the team plans on taking a tackle with one of their to two picks this offseason, that won’t be enough. The Jets were hit particularly hard at tackle where they lost starter Mekhi Becton before the season kicked off. Becton’s replacement, Duane Brown then went down with an injury for several weeks before playing any meaningful snaps. In the end, the Jets would go through Becton, Brown, George Fant, Max Mitchell, Alijah Vera Tucker who had moved over from guard, Cedric Ogbuehi, Conor McDermott and Mike Remmers. That’s a total of eight offensive tackles playing significant snaps at one point or another. Of that group, the only true tackle sure to return is Becton, whose injury woes are well documented. Brown, at his advance age, could consider retirement and Fant is due to become a free agent. Vera-Tucker will likely move back to guard and the rest are already gone or likely to go. With this being the case, the Jets should consider bringing Fant back on a team-friendly deal. The tackle was hoping for a hefty pay raise after playing at a high level in 2021 but his injury ravaged season all but guarantees that won’t be happening. If that means Fant, who has played both left and right tackle, can return as a backup at both spots, the Jets would be foolish not to consider it.

  5. Last week, the Jets hired Nathaniel Hackett as their new offensive coordinator after parting ways with Mike LaFleur after two seasons. Hackett’s hiring should bring cautious optimism to the Jets moving forward for several reasons. While Hackett failed miserably as the head coach of the Broncos in 2022, becoming only the fifth head coach since 1970 to be fired before finishing his first season, it’s important to remember that a bad head coach does not mean a bad coordinator. Countless coordinators failed as head coaches and returned to being top coordinators after their stints. Head coach Robert Saleh is pinning his hope that Hackett brings stability and experience to the role that LaFleur didn’t have. As a franchise, the Jets have had seven offensive coordinators since 2012, with none of the coaches lasting longer than two seasons. The constant turnover has made it difficult for any consistency in offensive strategy. One source of optimism that Hackett brings to New York is his prior experience working with quarterbacks. Twenty-one of the offensive coordinators or play-callers last season had prior experience as an NFL quarterbacks coach, and Hackett’s hiring returns the Jets to this league-wide trend. It is a quarterback-driven league, and the Jets have struggled to find a franchise quarterback. Whoever is the starter next year will have a more experienced coaching staff working with him than Zach Wilson had in 2022. Hackett has also worked in a variety of systems with quarterbacks of varying caliber and has coached successful offenses in multiple stops. Hackett’s roster of quarterbacks he has worked with in his career is headlined by Aaron Rodgers, the future hall of famer who may be available via trade this offseason. Beyond him, he also worked with Blake Bortles as he started his career in Jacksonville, plus a whole stable of quarterbacks during his stint in Buffalo. The wide-ranging skills of his quarterbacks have led to him coordinating a variety of systems, from the top-ranked running offense in 2017 to the top-ranked scoring offense in 2020 with the Packers. The offensive talent at his disposal in New York could lead to innovative systems. Behind Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate Garrett Wilson at wide receiver to running back Breece Hall, the weapons are there if they can settle the quarterback debate. However, that debate is the key question to the Jets 2023 season. Who will start at quarterback? If they had average quarterback play in 2022, the Jets would have been competing in the playoffs. If they can find a solution, whether short-term or long-term, they could set themselves up to be a force to be reckoned with in 2023 and beyond.

  6. As I get ready to make my second down trip to Mobile, Alabama for the Reese’s Senior Bowl, I’ve decided to share a handful of prospects, both on offense and defense, that I think can catch the attention of Jets coaches and scouts throughout the week. After starting with the offensive side of the ball, here are five defensive prospects to watch for New York: Dylan Horton, EDGE, TCU Despite being a safety prospect coming out of high school, TCU’s Dylan Horton found a final position along the defensive line for the Horned Frogs. At a projected 6’4” 279lbs, Horton has a simple body frame as a recent Jets rookie: Michael Clemons. He has inside and outside versatility, playing just shy of 30% of his snaps at defensive tackle, according to PFF. Horton possesses a good array of pass rush moves, and his sack production is proof of that (10.5 sacks and 15.5 TFLs). Horton could be a potential Day 3 steal for the Jets, who will need to add talent to their front four. Derick Hall, EDGE, Auburn Staying along the defensive line, Auburn’s Derick Hall is another edge rusher that could be on the Jets radar. As many fans would agree, Bryce Huff is due for a new contract this offseason, and the Jets should do right and bring him back. On the off chance that they do not, Hall could be a similar rotational speed rusher replacement. He has great closing speed on the quarterback as a rusher, and can use his speed to get out to the boundary quickly in the run game. He has a handful of effective pass rush moves, mainly a long arm and a dip move. He had some missed tackles in the games I watched, as well as being removed from his run fit multiple times by interior offensive linemen. He may not be a perfect scheme fit, but if you asked him to specifically be an attacking edge presence for you, Hall could have a very good career in the NFL. Byron Young, DT, Alabama Sensing a theme here, Alabama’s Byron Young is the third and final lineman of this list. Much like Horton, Byron Young has inside and out versatility, playing anywhere from the ‘3-technique’ to the ‘5’. For his size of 6’3” 292lbs, Young moves well along the line, with good first-step explosiveness. He wins with his bullrush often, and has a very good swim move that helps him get into the backfield quickly. He has the speed to ‘run the arc’ quickly, with a good change of direction to cutback upfield to sack the quarterback. One of eight total Alabama players participating in the Senior Bowl, Young has top-100 potential. DeMarvion Overshown, LB, Texas A converted safety down to linebacker for the Longhorns, DeMarvion Overshown is one of the featured names at the Senior Bowl for the position. A true chess piece for a defensive coordinator, Overshown has played both MIKE and WILL, as well as slot and some end man on the line of scrimmage. He is a proficient blitzer, particularly when rushing through the A gap. He is disciplined when dropping into coverage, using good vision to read and react to plays. Overshown is a hard hitter of the middle of the field, but has a tendency to miss tackles. He gets a bit aggressive in the run game, which can cause him to overshoot rush lanes on occasion. With an obvious need at linebacker outside C.J. Mosley, Overshown checks all the boxes of a player the Jets could fall in love with. Chris Smith II, S, Georgia Speaking of falling in love, my final prospect is one that has easily become one of my favorites in the entire class. Georgia’s fifth year safety Christoper Smith II is one of three National Champions suiting up for the week of practice. At 5’11” 190lbs, Smith played multiple spots in the defensive secondary for the Bulldogs. He has above average ball skills and great closing speed on the ball. He has a smooth backpedal and can trigger quickly downhill. If he somehow lasts until the second round (unlikely), New York should be all-in on his services with the 43rd overall selection.

  7. As I get ready to make my second down trip to Mobile, Alabama for the Reese’s Senior Bowl, I’ve decided to share a handful of prospects, both on offense and defense, that I think can catch the attention of Jets coaches and scouts throughout the week. Starting with the offensive side of the ball, here are five names to watch for New York: Tyjae Spears, RB, Tulane A two-year starter at Tulane, Spears is one of 4 running backs at the Senior Bowl who will be coached by New York Jets assistant Pat Bastien, and quite frankly, he may be the most dynamic. With nearly 1,600 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns last season, Spears became the first Tulane player to win the AAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2022. His quick footwork and vision helped him eclipse 100+ rushing yards nine times for the Green Wave, including 205 yards in a Cotton Bowl win vs USC. Spears provides upside in the pass game, with 564 yards on 48 career catches (11.8 avg). He certainly possesses the strength to hold up in pass protection, but there were some issues with his blocking in the games I watched. This will be a focal point for him to improve in Mobile this week. Jayden Reed, WR, Michigan State After a down year in 2022, Jayden Reed looks to rebound and boost his draft stock with a good week of practice. A Western Michigan transfer who then played three seasons with the Spartans, he scored double-digit touchdowns in 2021, en route to becoming a 1st-Team All-American. Reed has worked out of the slot or the boundary, finding success in both places. If he is able to put together a good week of practice and be dominant during the 1-on-1 periods, Jayden Reed could rise into the early Day 2 discussion for receivers. Tre Tucker, WR, Cincinnati With a likely need at kick returner, as well as depth at the wide receiver position, Cincinnati’s Tre Tucker could be the perfect replacement for Braxton Berrios. After an All-Pro season in 2021, Berrios failed to recapture that fire and didn’t look like the same player in 2022. If he were to be a cap casualty for New York (carries a $8.2M cap hit with only $3.2M in dead money), the 5’9” 185lb Bearcat is one to keep on your radar as a mid-round target. Matthew Bergeron, OT, Syracuse With head coach Robert Saleh expressing the team having a ‘revamped’ offensive line in his latest presser, the majority of my focus will be on the offensive line while in Mobile. Joe Douglas has an affinity for taking linemen early in the draft, so the 13th pick very well could emerge in Mobile. Matthew Bergeron was compared to Tristan Wirfs by Ben Fennell, saying that he is “powerful in the run game”. For a team that wants to be a run-heavy offense in New York, that sounds like a good fit. He will certainly have his hands full with the loaded talent on the defensive line at Mobile, but if he can hold his own, he could be a top-40 lock in late April. Emil Ekiyor Jr., OG, Alabama Looking to follow in Zion Johnson’s footsteps, Alabama offensive guard Emil Ekiyor Jr. could be getting looks at a new position during his week in Mobile. After playing his last 26 games at right guard for the Tide, Ekiyor is reportedly going to take snaps at center. Some teams are even speculating that he could be a much better NFL center than guard, so if he is able to find success, his stock is going to rise immensely. Ekiyor will have an upper hand from a talent perspective coming from Alabama, so going against smaller school guys could help ease his transition. With any luck, Ekiyor could become another option in the middle of the line for New York, should they move on from Connor McGovern.

  9. Wrapping up one of their most important coordinator searches in recent memory, the New York Jets are hiring former Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett as their offensive coordinator. This, according to the New York Jets official twitter account. We've hired Nathaniel Hackett as our offensive coordinator. https://t.co/nP2ldF4SfL pic.twitter.com/ZhuJdZWBz6 — New York Jets (@nyjets) January 26, 2023 Hackett, who was recently fired by Denver after a failed stint as their head coach, has strong ties to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whose name has been popping up as a possible Jets target in recent days. But with or without Rodgers, the Jets did the right thing in targeting a play caller who has experience and success in that role. The las name may rub some fans the wrong way as Hackett’s father Paul oversaw a disappointing and vanilla offense back in the early 2000’s. But Hackett is his own man (and coach) so as difficult as it might be, giving Hackett some time to show what he can do is the right thing to do. And if he can help lure Rodgers to 1 Jets Drive, things are going to get interesting in a hurry.

  10. After spending a season getting beaten and battered along the offensive line, and especially at both tackle spots, expect Jets GM Joe Douglas to consider taking another tackle with one of his first two picks in the upcoming NFL draft. Should the Jets choose to take one in the first round, Pete Skoronski of Northwestern will undoubtedly be an option, but will he last until pick number 13? How long does @NUFBFamily OT Peter Skoronski stay on the board come draft time? Top ten pick? Top fifteen? pic.twitter.com/aNQ7pd0OMa — Glenn Naughton (@JetsPicks) January 9, 2023 A coveted player out of high school, Skoronski drew interest from Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, Iowa, Stanford, Illinois and Duke. In the end, the Illinois native chose Northwestern. In three seasons at Northwestern, Skoronski surrendered just five sacks on 1,258 pass block reps. In his final collegiate season, he allowed just one on 474 pass plays. And more than just a one-trick pony Skoronski is also a force in the run game. Projected top 15 pick Pete Skoronski is stout is pass pro and consistently finds his target on the second level in the run game. Allowed just 1 sack this past season at @NUFBFamily on 474 pass block reps and paved the way on the ground. pic.twitter.com/jeV0J6yZ3s — Glenn Naughton (@JetsPicks) January 26, 2023 Skoronski wins more with technique than overwhelming strength at this point in his career but that could change with some time in an NFL strength and conditioning program. In pass pro, Skoronski’s quick feet allow him to work well against speed rushers. Do enough homework on the tackle and you’re bound to find plenty of observers commenting on his arm length. While shorter arms aren’t ideal, we’ve seen other tackles transition just fine to the pro game if their skill set is up to par, which it appears Skoronski’s are. Even if tackle Mekhi Becton were to find a way to stay on the field in 2023, taking an OT early makes plenty of sense as Becton could be shifted over to right tackle if need be.

  12. Following a tumultuous 2022 NFL campaign for his star quarterback, Lamar Jackson, the future of the Baltimore Ravens seems far from certain. The 26-year-old sustained an unfortunate knee injury late in the season, which caused him to sit out of 12 games and forced Baltimore to end their championship aspirations as they were left without Jackson in their final five regular-season contests plus a playoff game against Cincinnati Bengals, where they lost. As such, with Jackson on the sidelines throughout that period, Ravens ended 2-4 overall – even losing at playoffs despite having already clinched a spot before then. At the close of last season, the 2018 MVP’s fifth-year option was in its final year. Though he has the potential to sign a new contract if one is proposed, his agents and Baltimore Ravens have not been able to reach an agreement for any extensions. Jackson is a force to be reckoned with when fully healthy. His ability to demolish defenses on the ground and through passing plays has been proven in his five seasons, totaling 125 touchdowns. Although he can cause significant damage as an athlete, this also puts him at much higher risk of injury due to his willingness to escape the pocket often; Jackson missed five games during each of the last two seasons alone. The Ravens and Jackson may look to a franchise tag as an option should discussions not go well. Although it might take money, the team would rather keep him than lose him when he’s free to sign with any other organization; if things worsen, they could even consider trading him instead. Prior to the 2022 season, negotiations between the Ravens and Jackson, who is not represented by an agent and is representing himself, were unsuccessful; however, it is anticipated that they will move forward now that the team’s summer has started. But there will be a lot of interest in Jackson’s talents right away if he decides to explore the world of free agency. In three of his four seasons as a full-time starter for the Ravens, Jackson has led them to the playoffs, and he was just named the NFL’s MVP. What are the teams in pole position to obtain Lamar Jackson? As the offseason begins, all eyes are on the Las Vegas Raiders. With Derek Carr’s potential trade looming over them, they must find a capable replacement if he does depart. Also of note is that if Tom Brady leaves Tampa Bay for 2023 free agency as rumored, then Las Vegas may be his ideal destination – leading to an interesting juxtaposition between these two teams and their respective goals in this upcoming season! A fascinating inclusion to this list of longshots is the New England Patriots. Mac Jones, their starting quarterback, experienced a reversal in his performance during year 2; however, with a fresh offensive coordinator at the helm, he may find success again. Last season saw Jones play an integral part in the Patriot’s 10-7 record and playoff participation, as he had a phenomenal rookie campaign despite facing difficulties earlier on. With Jackson’s superior talent, the New York Jets could have seen a huge shift in their 10–12 record in 2022. The team already has an incredible defense, a few skilled receivers, and strong running backs. It is certain that with the addition of a top-notch quarterback, they would be able to contend at AFC levels and bring immense delight to New Yorkers who can place wagers on them or just enjoy their success. Wagers can be placed on the reliable sites that have been created solely for that purpose, where New York Sports Betting Promos can be utilized. The Jets will not be guided to the promised land by Mike White, Zach Wilson, or Joe Flacco, who do not have the top quality of an option like Lamar Jackson. With this in mind, it is perhaps no wonder why the Jets have been considered one of the favorites for the QB. And with the sports betting market open to New Yorkers, it would not be a surprise if many were considering it as a possible wager. Until a resolution is reached, Jackson’s future in Baltimore is probably going to rank among the most important summer storylines. What are the chances of the New York Jets getting Lamar Jackson in a trade? Jackson is the long-term quarterback for the present and the future, according to the Ravens. Although they have publicly stated the appropriate things and released the appropriate reports, the behaviors of both parties involved reveal a different picture. In the next few days/weeks, Jackson and the Ravens will meet again to talk about a new contract, one in which Jackson intends to get guarantees comparable to those given to Deshaun Watson. However, the Ravens have been reluctant to make such a concession. The problem can be found there. The Ravens’ supporters probably don’t feel too confident about the future of their great quarterback when these two factors are combined with some odd interactions between the two teams. For their part, the Jets are surely keeping an eye on the situation and appear prepared to take action if the Ravens decide to make Jackson available. Joe Douglas, the general manager, is conscious of the threat to his position. He is aware that the current leadership, including himself, may be fired if the Jets do not make the playoffs in 2023, thus putting his back to the wall. Douglas will therefore make every effort to present a compelling offer if a quarterback of Jackson’s caliber becomes available. Even when the warning signs are taken into account, it is obvious. New York Jets are the betting favorites to trade for Lamar Jackson The New York Jets, who consist of a lot of young and talented players but experience many uncertainties at quarterback following the problems of former No. 1 overall pick Zach Wilson, have the next-lowest odds of keeping Jackson despite having a young core of promising players. According to reports, the Jets want to replace Wilson, at least in part, by adding a seasoned quarterback. A celebrity like Michael Jackson might be added to their talented lineup if they decide to go all in. With the AFC East being so fiercely competitive, such a move may provide the Jets with a huge boost. Given their draft capital and financial future, the Jets represent a significantly more realistic alternative, and the organization has apparently been keeping an eye on a potential Jackson deal should there be a significant backlash. The Jets should unquestionably be all-in on Jackson this offseason, according to reports, but that statement must be qualified by the crucial qualifier: if Jackson becomes available.

  13. It would appear the Jets may be entering their “interviewing guys who have done it before” phase of their search for a new offensive coordinator as they’ve reportedly met with former Vikings offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak. #Jets today are interviewing Broncos QBs coach/passing-game coordinator Klint Kubiak, as @TomPelissero reported. Kubiak, 35, son of retired coach Gary Kubiak, called plays for a few games in '22 under Nathaniel Hackett, another Jets candidate. Kubiak was MIN OC in '21. — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) January 22, 2023 Son of Gary Kubiak, Klint hasn’t done a great deal of play-calling, but has done more than most candidates the Jets have hosted up to this point, which isn’t saying a whole lot. As a member of the Vikings staff in 2021, Kubiak was the coordinator for an offense that finished 12th in the NFL in yards and 14th in points. It’s worth noting that veteran coordinator Rick Dennison served as a senior offensive assistant during Kubiak’s one year of calling plays in Minnestoa. The Jets are also rumored to be interested in speaking with current Bills and former Panthers coordinator Joe Brady, whose name was being tossed around a sure fire head coaching candidate just a couple of seasons ago.

  14. Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans to play at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Jacksonville Jaguars to play at Wembley Stadium as part of multi-year commitment to UK Two games in Germany confirmed for 2023, with Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots making their debut Jan. 19, 2023. The National Football League (NFL) today announced the five teams set to play in the 2023 International Games. The Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots will each play international games during the 2023 regular season. London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – the only purpose-built NFL stadium outside of the US – will once again host two international games, with the Bills and Titans heading to the capital. The Jaguars will return to their home away from home, Wembley Stadium, as part of their multi-year commitment to playing in the UK. The 2023 season will also see the Chiefs and Patriots both play regular season games in Germany, with destination cities to be announced later this year. The NFL previously confirmed that Munich and Frankfurt will stage games in Germany over the next four years. The Chiefs and Patriots are part of the NFL’s International Home Marketing Area (IHMA) program, which sees teams secure international marketing rights in countries beyond the US, with both sides having been awarded rights in Germany. Details of the dates, matchups and kickoff times will be confirmed later in the year when the full 2023 schedule is announced. Fans can register their interest in purchasing tickets by visiting here. This will be the second trip to London for both Buffalo and Tennessee, with the Bills having played there in 2015 and the Titans in 2018. The Jacksonville Jaguars, also an NFL IHMA side with marketing rights in the UK, will play their landmark 10th game in London this year. The Chiefs and the Patriots will make their debuts in Germany, following the inaugural international game there in Munich in 2022. The 2022 International Games saw record-breaking attendances and viewership as ticket demand and fandom continue to grow for the League across the world. “Growing the league and our sport internationally is a major strategic priority for the NFL, and we are excited to again be playing five games outside of the United States in 2023,” said Peter O’Reilly, NFL Executive Vice President, Club Business, Major Events & International. “We know how important live regular season games are to our passionate global fans and we thank our clubs for their strong, long-term commitment to this important initiative. Interest in our game globally is at an all-time high, and we look forward to returning to the UK and Germany in 2023 with some of the most iconic clubs and stars in the NFL.” There will be no international game in Mexico in 2023 due to renovations taking place in Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. O’Reilly added: “Mexico plays a critical role in the NFL’s international growth strategy, with its passionate and growing fan base. We remain committed to year-round engagement with our amazing Mexican fans and look forward to future games in Mexico.” “We are proud to be selected to participate in our league’s international games in 2023 and continue to help grow our sport globally,” said Buffalo Bills EVP/Chief Operating Officer Ron Raccuia. “The NFL has done an incredible job with this initiative. We’re excited for Bills Mafia to experience Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, one of the primary design inspirations for our new stadium scheduled to open in 2026.” “It’s an honor to be one of the teams representing the NFL abroad in 2023 and play a role in continuing the incredible growth our sport has seen in the UK,” said Titans President and CEO Burke Nihill. “The atmosphere in London leading up to and at our game in 2018 was absolutely electric. Since then, we’ve remained in touch with our UK-based Titans fans and they’ve grown into one of our most enthusiastic fan bases. We can’t wait to see them again this upcoming season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and know many of our fans here in Tennessee will be excited to make the trip as well.” “We could not be more excited to participate in a Germany game and introduce more of the world to Chiefs Kingdom this fall,” said Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt. “Our team and our fans have had incredible experiences in London and Mexico City as part of the International Series in the past, and we look forward to helping the NFL in its effort to continue growing the game in Germany.” “We are thrilled to be selected to play in Germany this year,” said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. “We are undefeated in our three previous international games, thanks in part to the outstanding support from our fans. We know that some of our most passionate fans reside in Germany, and we look forward to finally playing a game there. We know the fans will create an amazing atmosphere. We are sure it will be a memorable experience and one of the highlights of the 2023 season.” “The Jaguars and Wembley Stadium made International Games history in the capital in 2022, boasting the highest attendance of any NFL game in London ever and we are committed to Wembley for at least two more annual home games, with the aim of making each one bigger and better than the last. Our commitment to London and the United Kingdom goes much deeper than just one home game each year, however. We have a loyal and continually growing fan base which we very much appreciate, our JagTag programme reaches almost 90,000 young people spanning the breadth of the country, and the Union Jax Foundation ensures we are able to provide support to a cross section of society’s vulnerable young people. The Jaguars plan to always be part of NFL landscape in London and we are all looking forward to being back in 2023,” said Mark Lamping, Jacksonville Jaguars President. With the expansion of the NFL schedule in 2021, up to four of the teams from the conference whose teams are eligible for a ninth regular-season home game are now designated to play a neutral-site international game each year.
