New York Jets Offseason Review

In what was one of the biggest moves of the offseason, Gang Green traded their first round pick (No. 13), a second round selection (No. 42) and a sixth round pick (No. 207) in 2023, as well as a conditional second rounder in 2024 to Green Bay for Rodgers, and their first round pick (No. 15) and a fifth round pick (No. 170) in 2023. A-a-ron is a no-doubt first ballot Hall of Famer, but things seemed to get a little stagnant in Green Bay the last couple of seasons. Change was inevitable entering this offseason, with the only question being if Rodgers was going to choose retirement or choose a different team. With Rodgers now a Jet, anything less than a deep playoff run will be considered a failure.

Aaron Rodgers LOOKS SHARP & POISED 🎯… New York Jets Training Camp Highlights

Rodgers was by far the biggest addition of the offseason for the Jets, but he is bringing some friends from Green Bay with him. Former Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett was fired back in December after a 4-11 start; the Jets hired him in January to run the offense. Hackett was the offensive coordinator in Green Bay from 2019 to 2021. In that time, Rodgers won MVP awards in 2020 and 2021, the Packers won a ton of games, and the offense was among the league’s elite. Allen Lazard was given a four year contract to leave the Packers and be Gang Green’s number two option in the passing game behind Garrett Wilson. Randall Cobb was also brought over from Green Bay as a free agent. Lazard and Cobb’s familiarity with Rodgers and the offense will help streamline things a bit on the field, and will help the rest of the offense get up to speed. Safety Adrian Amos was signed (also from Green Bay) after Chuck Clark suffered a knee injury during offseason workouts, and might also play a key role in the secondary on his new team.

Free agent defensive tackles Quinton Jefferson and Al Woods add beef up the middle, while 15th overall pick Will McDonald IV joins a solid edge rushing group. McDonald has elite explosiveness, and wins using his speed and length. The team re-signed center Connor McGovern, and signed a few veteran free agents along the offensive line to bolster the depth up front. 2023 second round center Joe Tippmann could push for playing time sooner than later. Tippmann has excellent mobility, and allowed only one sack over the last two years; he could push for a starting job at center in year one, or slide over to guard in a pinch. This team has dealt with numerous injuries to the offensive line in recent seasons, so adding quality depth up front was important this offseason. Michigan offensive tackle Carter Warren was selected in the fourth round to be a developmental tackle behind Duane Brown. Keep an eye on 5th round runningback Israel Abanikanda. Breece Hall is coming off a season ending injury, and Michael Carter is nothing more than a rotational back. Abanikanda, who can rip off yardage in chunks, has excellent size to go with his game-breaking speed.
