- Connor Hughes of The Athletic writes that the Jets’ biggest needs this offseason are at wide receiver, offensive line, and cornerback.
- Of impending free-agent cornerbacks, Hughes tosses out Jalen Mills, Byron Jones, James Bradberry as some names to watch.
- Hughes believes the Jets could revamp their offensive line by signing players like Patriots G Joe Thuney and Lions G Graham Glasgow, in addition to selecting a left tackle and center in the “early rounds” of the 2020 NFL Draft.
- In the end, Hughes would be surprised if the Jets don’t sign Thuney or Redskins G Brandon Scherff.
- As for potential draft targets for Jets at No. 11 overall, Hughes writes that New York would “run their card up” if Georgia OT Andrew Thomas, Alabama OT Jedrick Wills, or Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs were available to them. However, if that proves to not be the case, he could see them drafting a receiver like Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy or Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb.
- Brian Costello of New York Post mentions CB Trumaine Johnson and G Brian Winters and the “most likely” roster cuts for the Jets this offseason, which would net them $10.3 million of cap room
- Costello lists ILB Avery Williams ($6.5M of savings), WR Quincy Enunwa ($2.4M of savings) and CB Darryl Roberts ($6M of savings) as “less likely” release candidates.
- Spotrac.com notes that Ravens’ recently suspended OT James Hurst forfeits $1.25 million of his 2020 base salary and bonus after violating the league’s PED policy.
