  3. 10 games into his coaching tenure with the New York Jets, head coach Adam Gase’s offense is finally starting to breakthrough. In his first eight games with the New York Jets, Adam Gase’s offense was ranked 32nd in football and his team sat at a 1-7 record. A demoralizing loss to the lowly Miami Dolphins was seemingly the dagger to a truly awful season.Two weeks later, his squad sits at a not-so-embarrassing 3-7 rolling on a two-game win streak and his offense is coming off their best game of the year by a landslide. Say what you want about Gase and his Jets tenure so far, but give credit where it’s due. his offense has drastically improved. Sam Darnold began being more assertive in game planning with Gase, reportedly confronting his coach following his brutal outing against the New England Patriots. Darnold went over the playbook with Gase, telling him what he felt they could run effectively and what they couldn’t.Since that meeting, the Jets have a 2-1 record and have had some of their most productive games of the season offensively. In those games, Darnold has completed 65 percent of his passes while throwing for 783 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions. His rating in these three games was 101.5, compared to a season rating of 81.1.Gase has play-called to Darnold’s strengths much better in recent weeks, allowing Darnold to do what makes him great: roll out of the pocket and make plays. This has been a gigantic beneficiary to Darnold. Standing behind the Jets’ inept offensive line was never an answer to their problems. Darnold had the best game of his NFL career on Sunday, posting a career-high four touchdowns and a QB rating of 121.8 in the Jets’ dominant performance against the Washington Redskins.He’s revived what looked like a throwaway season for him, getting his TD:INT ratio positive, and more importantly, winning football games. These games may have been against subpar defenses, but so what? The Jets offense looks competent for the first time in far too long.If the Jets can keep their hot streak rolling against the playoff-contending Oakland Raiders, that would be a very convincing win for Gase and his staff. The longer Darnold has with Gase and his offense, the better he will get under it.The Jets weren’t necessarily destined for offensive success with a new head coach, an everlasting list of injuries, and a 22-year-old quarterback trying to handle it all under center isn’t a formula for success. Now that the two have worked with each other, with Gase coaching to Darnold’s strengths, hopefully they can get the offense rolling in the second half of the season. > https://thejetpress.com/2019/11/19/new-york-jets-adam-gase-offense-corner/
  4. Due to injuries and countless roster moves, the Jets have had to scrap the bottom of the barrel for players this season. The Jets are tied with the Dolphins for the league lead in players used this season with 68. The Jets also have $48 million worth of salary cap on injured reserve, which is more than double 26 NFL teams, according to the team’s former GM, Mike Tannenbaum. Currently, the Jets have 14 players on injured reserve. Mike Tannenbaum ✔@RealTannenbaum The @nyjets have over $48 Million of their salary cap on injured reserve. More than double 26 other NFL teams.That doesn’t include CJ Mosley who has only played in two games with a $13M cap hit 4:19 PM - Nov 19, 2019 New York has been plagued by injuries all season long. If you look at the first depth chart that came out at the beginning of the season, you’ll notice a lot of missing names on the current roster.The positions that the Jets have been hit the worst at are cornerback, inside linebacker and offensive line. The Jets have lost their top two cornerbacks in Trumaine Johnson and Darryl Roberts. They’ve also lost five inside linebackers for at least one game this season. On the offensive line, the Jets have used six different line combinations and four of the starting offensive linemen from Week 1 are either hurt or on the bench. With all the injuries, the Jets have had to add a bunch of players to fulfill the 53-man roster requirement. The Jets have 16 players who weren’t on the initial 53-man roster back in September.Even heading into Sunday’s game against the Redskins, the Jets had 23 players listed on the injury report. Say what you want about this team, but when you have this many injuries it’s not hard to see why the Jets are 3-7 on the season. > https://jetswire.usatoday.com/2019/11/20/jets-tied-with-dolphins-most-players-used/
  5. if Christopher Johnson really wants Jamal Adams to be a Jet for life, he’s going to have to pony up a lot of cash to keep Adams in New York. Though the Jets control Adams through the 2021 season if they pick up his fifth-year option, they’d be apt to offer him an extension sooner rather than later, both as a show of good faith after a chaotic year and because of the potential price tag he could command in two years. Adams is currently the 18th highest-paid safety with the $22.2 million rookie deal he signed in 2017 after the Jets took him sixth overall, but he will soon earn a much bigger salary. The Jets have three options with Adams: They can sign him to a contract extension at any point after this season, pick up his fifth-year option by May 3, 2020, or do nothing and let him play out the final year of his contract and let him hit free agency at the end of the 2020 season. The Jets should take the first option if they truly believe Adams is the face of their franchise and the future of their defense. What would it take to sign Adams to a long-term deal? Well, you’d have to look at the two record-setting contracts signed by safeties Landon Collins and Kevin Byard last offseason. Collins signed a six-year, $84 million contract with the Redskins in March that included $44.5 million in guaranteed money. With an average annual salary of $14 million, he became the highest-paid safety in the NFL until Byard signed a five-year, $70.5 million extension with the Titans in July that included $31 million guaranteed and will pay him an average of $14.1 million annually. Byard’s yearly salary is the starting point for Adams’ contract extension. In all likelihood, Adams would want somewhere close a $15 million annual salary, which isn’t completely unthinkable given Adams’ play of late.The Jets also can’t afford to wait longer than this offseason to extend Adams because of the other safeties in line for massive deals.If the Jets exercised Adams’ fifth-year option today, it would cost around $11.81 for the 2021 season. Since Adams was a top-10 pick, his option is calculated by taking the average of the top 10 safety salaries. That $11.81 million number could increase if another safety signs a deal that vaults him into the top 10. That’s well below anything Adams would ask for in a contract extension this winter, but by pushing the Jets’ deadline to sign Adams long-term by another season it could potentially raise the floor well for Adams if other safeties sign bigger deals.The three names Joe Douglas will have to watch if he plays the waiting game are the Vikings’ Harrison Smith, the Bears’ Eddie Jackson and the Chargers’ Derwin James. Smith is up for an extension after the 2021 season when he’ll turn 32, so the odds of him setting the market price are low. James is already one of the best safeties in the league but also isn’t eligible for a new deal until after the 2021 season unless the Chargers exercise his fifth-year option where he’ll have to wait until after 2022. The price could go up for Adams if the Jets wait for Jackson’s impending deal. Jackson is two years older than Adams and much more of a ballhawk, but he’s also one of the best safeties in the league and could easily sign a bigger deal than Byard and Collins as early as this offseason. If the Bears choose to extend Jackson before the Jets extend Adams, it could massively affect Adams’ asking price down the road.The Jets shouldn’t wait for any of these dominos to fall. Getting Adams locked up before the market resets will be crucial to Joe Douglas’ ability to remake the roster and keep Adams at the same time. He’ll have at minimum $46.4 million to spend in 2020, and that’s before he inevitably cuts other contracts for overpaid players like Trumaine Johnson. Yes, spending upward of $15 million per year on a safety is a massive risk for the Jets given the holes in various other positions on the roster. But for someone like Adams, it’s worth it given his performance this year. The Jets won’t just be paying for an incredible defensive back, but they’ll be paying for a top-flight pass rusher as well.Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has been able to unlock Adams’ versatility both in coverage and as a pass rusher. He’s blitzed Adams at multiple positions on the field – edge, safety, cornerback – which helped Adams notch five sacks the past two weeks (six on the season) and put him on pace to break the NFL record for most sacks by a defensive back (eight). According to Next Gen Stats, Adams blitzed an average of 5.2 times per game over the first eight games of the season. Adams lined up as an edge rusher 14 times against the Redskins, rushed 13 times and finished with a 26.4 pass-rush win percentage, per Pro Football Focus. On the season, he ranks first among defensive backs in blitzes (55) and quarterback pressures (12). Though he only has one interception on the season, Adams has broken up six passes and allowed a completion percentage of 53.8 percent and a passer rating of 78.7 when targeted. Retaining Adams will come at a hefty price, but it will be worth it to preserve the closest thing the Jets have to a superstar. Generational defensive talents don’t come around often and the Jets would be wise to lock theirs up for the foreseeable future. > https://jetswire.usatoday.com/2019/11/20/what-could-a-jamal-adams-extension-look-like-jets-joe-douglas/
  6. The Jets announced on Wednesday that they signed OL Ryan Crozier to the practice squad. Crozier signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Connecticut following the 2019 NFL draft. He was waived with an injury designation following the preseason and eventually released with a settlement.As a redshirt senior at UConn, Crozier started all 12 games at center for the Huskies. He helped the Huskies produce a pair of 1,000-yard rushers. Crozier, 24, previously worked out for the Jets in October. He has never appeared in a regular-season NFL game. He will help add depth to the center position now that Ryan Kalil is on injured reserve and Jonotthan Harrison is starting at center. Here is an updated look at New York’s practice squad: WR Jeff Smith RB Valentine Holmes (international) WR Josh Malone QB Mike White Bronson Kaufusi Corbin Kaufusi LB Ukeme Eligwe LB Jamey Mosley OL James Murphy OL Ben Braden OL Ryan Crozier > https://jetswire.usatoday.com/2019/11/20/jets-ryan-crozier-practice-squad-uconn-denver-broncos/
  7. Kelvin Beachum isn’t always a fan favorite – but he ought to be Sam Darnold’s favorite teammate. The Jets’ left tackle receives plenty of criticism. Understandably so. After all, he’s allowed four sacks and 16 pressures in seven games, according to ProFootballFocus.com. The 30-year-old certainly isn’t among the elite at his position. Odds are the Jets will let him walk in free agency this offseason and look for a much-needed upgrade.But, for all his flaws, Beachum has undeniably been a major factor in Darnold’s success – or lack thereof – this season. Both Darnold and Beachum have played seven games this season. But the two have only overlapped in four of those games. Three times, Darnold has been forced to play with a fill-in left tackle. Here are Darnold’s numbers in the four games with Beachum protecting his blindside: • Eight touchdowns, two interceptions, 104.8 rating, 10 sacks That’s pretty darn good. By contrast, here’s how Darnold has played in his other three starts: • Three touchdowns, eight interceptions, 50.9 rating, 12 sacks Yes, yes – correlation doesn’t prove causation. But it sure doesn’t seem like a coincidence that Beachum’s return from an ankle injury in Week 10 overlapped with Darnold’s slump-busting performance against the Giants. Clearly, Beachum’s presence has been huge for Darnold and the Jets’ offense as a whole.“He’s a really good leader for that group, he has been for a couple years now and when he’s in there, he’s just another guy that everyone looks to,” Darnold said. “If we’re in a lull or if we’re not finding the rhythm that we keep talking about, he’s the guy that kind of pushes the tempo and makes sure that everyone is on the same page.” Unfortunately for Darnold, there’s a chance he could be without Beachum again this week; head coach Adam Gase announced Monday that the left tackle re-aggravated his ankle against the Redskins on Sunday. However, Gase also said the injury does not appear as severe this time around and that Beachum still hopes to practice this week. Based on those numbers, Darnold is hoping he will, too. > https://www.nj.com/jets/2019/11/is-this-oft-criticized-jet-actually-sam-darnolds-key-to-success.html
