Jets free agency outlook

Admin - February 11, 2018

NFL free agency is just a month away and the Jets are finally poised to make some big signings. With about $100M of projected cap space GM Mike Maccagnan's job could be on the line if he fails to deliver this offseason. The Gang Green also have plenty of free agents of their own and some of them could be worth being re-signed.

QB Josh McCown had the best season of his long career, throwing for almost 3,000 yards, 18 TDs and 9 INTs on a team that was expected to have a winless season. Most pundits envision the Jets to go after Washington's QB Kirk Cousins who threw for over 4,000 yards in each of last three seasons. If Maccagnan can't land Cousins, then he will most likely go back to McCown.

TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins also arguably had the best season of his career. He caught 50 passes for 357 yards (both career highs) and 3 TDs. Seattle's TE Jimmy Graham could be a solid option but if the Jets don't want to splash big money on a tight end, then re-signing Seferian-Jenkins could be the logical move.

CB Morris Claiborne was pretty solid, finishing the season with 1 INT and 8 pass defenses. New England's CB Malcolm Butler, who was benched in the Super Bowl, could be a possibility as well here. The Jets, however, could re-sign Claiborne regardless.

MLB Demario Davis is arguably the best linebacker on the Jets roster. He also had a solid year, finishing with career high 135 tackles (97 solo), 5 sacks and 3 defended passes. He's a must to re-sign.
