Jets

  • Sources have told Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com that the Jets’ gameplan in free agency includes re-signing CB Morris Claiborne and keeping Buster Skrine.
  • Pauline says it’s unlikely the Jets will seriously pursue free agent CB Trumaine Johnson, but they do have their sights on a mid-tier free agent.
  • While there has been some talk that Patriots CB Malcolm Butler could be an option for the Jets, Pauline hears that they’re instead leaning towards Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland.
  • Should the Jets miss out on QB Kirk Cousins, Pauline says that the contingency plan for the New York is to go after Sam Bradford.
  • The Jets have been linked to Giants C Weston Richburg for weeks now, but Pauline says the market for him has “exploded” and there are plenty of teams with a lot of interest in him.
  • As of now, the Jets have yet to show interest in re-signing C Wesley Johnson.
