Henderson's release will create over $2.5 million in cap space for the Jets. After posting 45 tackles and forcing two fumbles in his 2015 return to the league, Henderson managed 21 stops in five games before being placed on the non-football injury list this past season. With Henderson out of the picture, 2016 first-rounder Darron Lee is now cemented as a starter at inside linebacker for New York.
After picking up 13 sacks in 27 games over the last two years, Richardson has really struggled to get the quarterback this season, as he now has just 1.5 sacks through six games (he was suspended for the season-opener). Given his lack of sacks, and his fairly pedestrian tackle totals, he hasn't been a strong fantasy IDP option.
Foxx was released by the Seahawks prior to the beginning of the regular season due to a hamstring injury and spent the entire season in free agency. He'll now look to solidify himself as a depth option for the Jets throughout the offseason in the hopes of claiming a spot on the 53-man roster next year.
Forte missed the final two games of the season due to the injury, as he ended his first season in New York with 813 yards and seven touchdowns on 218 rushing attempts to go along with 30 receptions for 263 yards and one touchdown. The veteran back is under contract through the 2018 season, but is coming off the worst season of his career, so the Jets may look to pursue alternative options next season.
This is the first absence for Marshall due to his current hamstring injury. The 24-year-old has only played special teams this season, so his absence won't open up much playing time for his fellow teammates.
Carter fortunately escaped last weekend's bout with the Patriots setback-free. As usual, he projects to rotate in at inside linebacker behind David Harris and Darron Lee.
Burris was unable to practice earlier in the week, but will be good to go Sunday and is slated to provide depth at cornerback per usual.
The former sixth round pick out of Maine serves primarily as a depth cornerback for the Jets. James will have to prove his worth throughout training camp and the preseason to ensure a spot on the team come September.
Catapano missed last week's game against the Dolphins due to his knee injury and they team since determined that he wouldn't be able to play in the final two weeks of the season. Josh Martin and Freddie Bishop figure to see a few extra reps with Catapano absent for the final couple tilts.
Jenkins missed practice during the week and was doubtful to play on Thursday, making his inactive status unsurprising. Now missing his second straight game, it's unclear when the rookie will make his debut, but the long week prior to the team's Week 3 game may be enough for him to return by then.
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 as the Jets No. 1 QB atop 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.
After Wednesday's practice session, Peake returned to the field and appears ready to play in Sunday's divisional matchup with the Dolphins. As the No. 5 wideout on the depth chart, he shouldn't have a particularly important role in the Jets' offensive game plan, but could play a role on special teams.
The decision to waive Johnson comes a day after he received his first start of the year. The 23-year-old recorded two tackles in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He is considered a strong candidate to return to the team's practice squad.
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.
The Auburn product latched on with the Jets at the end of the 2016 campaign after quarterback Bryce Petty was placed on injured reserve. Although he's been a journeyman to this point in his career, Lemonier is still just 25 and possesses above average athleticism. The Jets' deep linebacking corps will likely relegate him to a special teams role early in the season, however.
Catanzaro was afforded multiple game-winning field-goal attempts last season, namely in Week 1 against the Patriots and Week 7 versus the Seahawks, but he was unable to connect. By season's end, he was successful on just 21 of 28 field goals and 43 of 47 extra points, barely eking out triple-digit points for the third consecutive campaign. The Cardinals signaled that they may be moving on with Thursday's signing of veteran placekicker Phil Dawson, but there's a chance Catanzaro could re-sign at a lesser price than the aforementioned RFA tender in order to let the best man take the role in 2017.
Currently rehabbing from a torn patellar suffered in December, the 28-year-old safety won't be able to pass a physical anytime soon. Once he's able to do so, Gilchrist could be part of the Jets' veteran purge that has already sent WR Brandon Marshall, C Nick Mangold and CB Darrelle Revis out of town.
Stanford was waived/injured by the Jets on Dec. 7 and reverts to IR because no other team in the league placed a claim on him. He'll look to return to full strength in time for OTAs.
Allen was waived/injured Saturday, but ultimately cleared waivers and will revert to the Jets' IR.
The suspension stems from a DUI arrest in September, which Seferian-Jenkins agreed to a plea deal for at the Hillsborough (Fla.) County Court in mid-February. He's fully expected to take part in the entirety of the preseason, but will then miss the first two games of the season, which means he'll have to forfeit a small portion of his $1.1 million contract. The Jets don't have a proven tight end behind Seferian-Jenkins, so they could look to the free agent market in hopes of adding some extra help at some point prior to training camp.
Lee has missed three consecutive games with a sprained ankle, but returned to practice this week and is evidently nearing full health. His availability likely spells a significant decrease in playing time for Julian Stanford.
The Jets have already parted ways with some of their top performers from recent years, releasing CB Darrelle Revis and C Nick Mangold, in addition to trading WR Brandon Marshall to the Giants. While this looks to be as close to a full rebuild as one ever sees in the NFL, it shouldn't be assumed the team will release Decker, who carries reasonable cap hits of $8.75 million (2017) and $9 million (2018) for the final two seasons of his contract. He also just celebrated his 30th birthday this past week, whereas Marshall, Mangold and Revis will all be at least 32 before Week 1. Decker is expected to participate in the non-contact portions of OTAs, and while he isn't a lock to be ready for training camp, the team hopes he'll be available Week 1. It is still possible he'll be released after he passes a physical, which he presumably won't be able to do for another few months.
Adams is out for the season, leaving the Texans to fill a void in the offensive line at left guard.
Anunike played three games for the Broncos in 2015 but was then waived by the team this past August. He spent the majority of the last offseason on the Physically Unable to Perform list due to a knee injury but now looks to solidify himself as a reserve defensive lineman in New York.
Anderson showed promise throughout his rookie season, pairing a solid route-running ability with speed. He emerged as a favorite target of fellow rookie Bryce Petty, as the two formed a connection throughout the offseason last year. Just like last offseason, Anderson will continue to work out with former Pro Bowl wideout Chad Johnson, according to Ethan Greenburg of the team's official site. "I'm going to put a lot of work in this offseason. There are a couple things I really want to focus on to get better", Anderson noted. He'll look to take the jump next season in the hopes of securing a top wideout spot on the depth chart.
Obioha landed on IR in the preseason after being signed by the Jets as an undrafted free agent last offseason. He'll look to make the team as a defensive end and special teams player in 2017.
White has bounced around the league the past three years, including stints with the Packers, Giants, and Jets. He heads back to the Jets with some baseline knowledge of the offense after spending six weeks of the season on the team's practice squad.
With Brandon Marshall joining the other New York football team, Enunwa is positioned to build on his 2016 breakout season while serving as the No. 2 wide receiver behind only Eric Decker (shoulder). The Jets could still add competition for targets and snaps before the season, but such a development would probably impact the likes of Robbie Anderson, Charone Peake and Jalin Marshall (suspension) more so than Enunwa. The team also hopes to finally get something out of injury-plagued 2015 second-round selection Devin Smith, who has only 10 catches in 14 career appearances.
Williams broke a four-game drought and moved to 6.5 sacks on the season. He showed what he's capable of when he registered 4.5 sacks in the first five games of 2016, and his ability to get hot makes him a player who could help teams make a title run in IDP leagues.
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.
Coming off an ugly season in which he looked nothing like his former self, Revis was involved in a February incident that initially led to four felony charges. Subsequently released by the Jets, the 31-year-old cornerback was cleared of all charges Wednesday, and he now intends to resume his career. He said he's already lost 10 pounds while working with a new trainer -- essentially acknowledging that he was overweight last season. With his value at its lowest point ever, Revis could be a low-cost replacement for Patriots CB Malcolm Butler, who's been the subject of constant trade rumors this offseason. The Steelers could also be a fit for the Pennsylvania native and former Pitt Panther, offering a competitive roster that's a bit shaky at cornerback.
Wilkerson's ankle injury isn't severe enough to keep him sidelined in Week 17, so he figures to start at defensive end per usual.
Mangold ended the 2016 on injured reserve due to an ankle injury after appearing in just eight games. In his 11-year career with the Jets, he started 164 out of 176 games leading to seven Pro Bowl selections.
Robinson played in just one game for New York last season before breaking his leg and being placed on injured reserve. He's now an unrestricted free agent, but he may struggle to sign with another team until his leg is healed and he's able to pass a physical.
McDougle was promoted due to the Jets possibly being without both Buster Skrine (knee) and Marcus Williams (ankle) in Week 10. He's unlikely to be much more than a depth corner and special teams player.
Powell played very well down the stretch in place of the injured Matt Forte (knee), rushing for over 120 yards in two of his last four games. Forte is expected back next season, so it's tough to see Powell getting enough opportunities to be a major fantasy contributor, though if Forte falls victim to the injury bug again, Powell has the ability to take over.
Hammond spent this past season on the Chiefs practice squad. Since entering the league as an undrafted rookie in 2014, Hammond has featured in 25 games, primarily making his impact felt as a punt returner. However, in order to make the Jets roster ahead of next season, he may need to show more ability as a pass-catcher. To this point, Hammond boasts just four career receptions.
The lowest restricted free agent tender still costs $1.8 million, which is significantly more than the type of near-minimum contract Bostick will likely receive. He caught only eight passes in 16 games last season, serving mostly as the No. 2 or 3 tight end. Regardless of where he lands, the 27-year-old likely will have to fight for a roster spot in training camp.
Pryor missed last week's matchup with the Colts due to his concussion but practiced throughout the past week and was a full participant in Friday's session. He'll play without limitation in Sunday's game against San Francisco.
Howsare spent the past two offseasons with the Jets but has failed to make the 53-man roster each time. He spent 12 weeks on the Jets' practice squad this year and will look to solidify himself as the team's fullback after playing linebacker in college.
Fitzpatrick more or less held the Jets hostage last offseason, inking a two-year contract on July 27, with only the first season guaranteed. Immediately confirmed as the starting quarterback over Geno Smith, Fitzpatrick was unable to uphold his standard from 2015. One factor in Fitzpatrick's dismal play was Eric Decker's season-ending torn rotator cuff, but with weapons like Brandon Marshall (hip) and Matt Forte (knee) on his side, the graybeard signal-caller was unable to display a modicum of consistency. The first stumbling block was a six-interception performance in Week 2, but Fitzpatrick was also benched twice for the likes of Smith (in Week 7 before the latter suffered a torn ACL in that game) and rookie Bryce Petty (at halftime in Week 13). Poised to hit the free-agent market on March 9, the best-case scenario for Fitzpatrick may be bridging the gap to a younger QB for a season or two.
The 25-year-old special teams ace will return to the Jets in 2017 after one of his best professional season to date. He logged 14 tackles on special teams and also chipped in 0.5 sacks. He'll likely remain in a special teams-heavy role given the Jets' depth at linebacker.
The 27-year-old Claiborne agreed to a one-year deal worth $5 million Friday. He'll look to revive his career in New York after five injury-filled seasons with Dallas.
After spending the first five seasons of his career with the Bears, Davis is on the verge of joining his sixth organization in as many years, three of which he's played for. The Browns were actually one of them, rostering the tight end during the 2013 offseason and preseason before axing him just before the start of the regular season. Since leaving Cleveland, he's been available for 45 games, starting 20, with the Seahawks, Lions, and Jets over the last four seasons, yet he's managed a measly six receptions (on 19 targets) for 50 yards and two touchdowns. In 2016, he was unable to haul in his only target before landing on IR with an elbow injury, so he's clearly reaching the end of the line as a professional.
Harris failed to surpass six tackles in any of his first eight games to start the season, but he's now recorded 11 in each of his last two games. The 32-year-old has been a tackling machine for years, and it appears that he's back on track, making him an excellent player to add in IDP leagues.
According to sources close to Marshall, the second-year wideout tested positive for Adderall, and it's not clear if he'll file an appeal. Marshall moved up the depth chart following the release of Brandon Marshall last week, but still likely finds himself behind Eric Decker (shoulder), Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson to open 2017. As a rookie, Marshall finished with 14 catches for 162 yards in 10 games while serving as the team's top kick returner.
Just a day after head coach Todd Bowles originally said that Thomas would miss "at least a couple weeks" with a torn labrum, Thomas was placed on injured reserve, so the timetable for his return is still up in the air. Sheldon Richardson and Jarvis Jenkins will likely see an increase in snaps with Thomas out. Jeremy Ross was signed Thursday to the team's open roster spot.
Clady tore his ACL this past Wednesday during an organized team activity practice. The Broncos signed Ryan Harris to the roster soon after announcing Clady sustained a season-ending injury.
Harvin is nursing a rib injury he suffered during Week 16’s game against the Patriots.
Deals can't be signed until 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.
Williams will make his return from a high-ankle sprain that forced him from playing in the past two games.
Mauldin missed the Jets' final five games of the season with the ankle injury, but it looks like he should be fully recovered by the time training camp rolls around in the fall. The linebacker finished 2016 with 16 tackles, 2.5 sacks and an interception in 11 games.
Morris was competing for a spot in the crowded Jets backfield prior to being released. He injured his shoulder and will require surgery, which was the reason for the team deciding to part ways. He'll be eligible for the injured reserve list if he clears waivers.
If Qvale is unable to go come Sunday, look for rookie Brandon Shell to get the first start of his career at right tackle.
Smith did not see the field for last Monday's game against the Colts despite not being on the injury report, but he is apparently ready to make his season debut after recovering from a torn ACL suffered last December. His return is certainly a boost to the Jets' receiving corps, though any kind of breakout performance is unlikely.
With Marcus Gilchrist landing on injured reserve Tuesday, the Jets decided to promote Martin. The safety had previously spent time with the team in the preseason before being waived and eventually signed back on to the practice squad. He'll likely compete with Doug Middleton for defensive reps.
Mauldin injured his hamstring in Week 13 and hasn't played since. Now done for the year, he'll finish his first season in New York with 28 tackles and 2.5 sacks across 11 games.
Bowman has been dealing with a knee injury since the lead-up to Week 5. With Bowman likely done for the year, Kellen Davis and Brandon Bostick are the Jets' remaining options at tight end with Austin Seferian-Jenkins out due to an injury.
Skrine sustained a concussion in Week 14 and was unable to suit up for last Sunday's game against the Dolphins. While it isn't certain if he's officially cleared concussion protocol yet, Skrine's uninhibited participation in Thursday's practice suggests he's on the right track to play Saturday versus the Patriots.
