Jets' Mike Pennel: Signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pennel signed a contract with the Jets on Wednesday.

Pennel was claimed by the Jets back in February but the team didn't tender him as a restricted free agent and let him hit free agency. The details of his deal are unclear but he'll be with the team for at least next season. The four-year veteran had 24 tackles, including a sack, and a forced fumble while playing in eight games for the Packers in 2016.

Jets' Christian Hackenberg: Ceiling still intrigues Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets believe Hackenberg has a higher ceiling than Bryce Petty (shoulder), the NY Daily News reports.

The recent signing of Josh McCown puts another obstacle in Hackenberg's path, following a rookie season in which the second-round draft pick didn't attempt any passes even though the Jets' quarterback corps was decimated by injuries. While Hackenberg's struggles in practice kept him behind Petty on the depth chart, the Jets apparently still believe the former has a higher long-term ceiling than the latter. Hackenberg may well be headed for another season as the No. 3 quarterback, but that doesn't mean he won't have a shot to compete with McCown and Petty for the starting job in training camp. It sounds as if Hackenberg would be a long shot in such a competition, unless he is drastically improved from what the Jets saw in practice last year.

Jets' Christian Hackenberg: Long shot to suit up in 2017?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hackenberg may be a long shot to play in 2017 after the Jets signed veteran quarterback Josh McCown on Monday, Rich Cimini of reports.

The Jets' QB corps endured ineffectiveness or injuries last season, with all of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith (torn ACL), and Bryce Petty (shoulder) missing time due to a variety of concerns. Despite all that, Hackenberg wasn't active once, but with Fitzpatrick and Smith out of the picture, he and Petty were the only signal-callers on the roster until management opted to bring McCown into the fold. McCown can be considered a stop-gap option as Petty and Hackenberg develop, but the veteran is a good bet to add to his cluttered medical chart as the 2017 campaign wears on. If McCown yields the top job at some point, Petty would likely be given the first shot to fill in after making four starts (among six appearances) in 2016. There's also the possibility that the Jets draft a quarterback for the third consecutive offseason, thereby throwing another hat into the ring. Consequently, Hackenberg appears set for regular healthy scratches for the second straight year.

Jets' Bryce Petty: Decent bet to start at some point in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite the signing of Josh McCown on Monday, Petty (shoulder) is a good bet to start for the Jets during the 2017 season, Rich Cimini of reports.

The addition of McCown indicates that the Jets are in rebuilding mode, as the veteran will enter next season as a certified 38-year-old graybeard. Further working in Petty's favor is McCown's inability to stay on the field. Over the past two campaigns, McCown has managed just 13 appearances (11 starts) due to two broken collarbones and multiple rib fractures. Furthermore, he's take the field more than 10 times in a given season just twice in 14 years as a professional. Given McCown's age and durability concerns, Petty and 2016 second-round pick Christian Hackenberg are candidates to direct the Jets' offense at some point in the fall. Petty is the more likely candidate to do so after making four starts among six games in 2016, during which he completed 75 of 133 passes (56.4 percent) for 809 yards, three touchdowns, and seven interceptions. However, a portion of his offseason may be consumed by his recovery from surgery on a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Jets' Josh McCown: Officially signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown agreed to a one-year contract with the Jets on Monday, his agent, Mike McCartney, reports.

After visiting with the team over the weekend, McCown officially put pen to paper Monday on a deal that will bring him to New York City to play for the Jets. He's made previous stops in Cleveland, Tampa Bay and Chicago over the past five years and has proven to be a valuable backup quarterback as well as a solid fill-in starter when called upon. However, the 37-year-old offers little upside at this point in his career and, while he initially slots in at No. 1 on the depth chart, is not the long-term solution at quarterback and his signing shouldn't prevent New York from considering a signal caller in the early rounds of this year's draft.
