Position Listing
Erin Henderson
News
Henderson's (undisclosed) contract option for the 2017 season has been declined by the Jets, making him a free agent, Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports.

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.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Sheldon Richardson
News
Richardson reported for the second day of voluntary offseason workouts, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports.

The subject of frequent trade rumors the past two offseasons, Richardson is set to play out the final year of his rookie contract at the fifth-year option salary of approximately $8 million. With Muhammad Wilkerson already carrying a huge contract and Leonard Williams still on his rookie deal, the Jets aren't expected to work out an extension to retain Richardson beyond 2017. A trade might seem to make sense for the rebuilding franchise, but Richardson's salary and career trajectory would probably prevent the Jets from fetching anything more than a middle-round selection -- which is what the team will get as compensation if he leaves as an unrestricted free agent next offseason. He thus figures to stick around next to Williams and Wilkerson for one more year, giving the Jets a formidable defensive line amidst an otherwise barren roster. Richardson did have 62 tackles, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 15 games last season, partially making up for his career-low total of 1.5 sacks. His participation at the voluntary offseason program suggests he's fine with staying in New York for another season before hitting the open market next year.

Darryl Roberts
News
Roberts (shoulder) was a full participant at practice on Thursday.

Roberts was forced to leave Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh after injuring his shoulder. His return to practice is a positive sign and he should be expected to play in the Jets' Week 6 matchup with Houston.

Matt Forte
News
According to head coach Todd Bowles, Forte (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on his torn meniscus Friday, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

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.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bruce Carter
News
Carter signed a contract with the Jets on Thursday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Carter signed with the Jets prior to last season and went on to record 16 tackles and a pass defensed while playing in 13 games. Look for Carter to be a depth linebacker and special teams player once again in 2017.

Juston Burris
News
Burris (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

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.

Xavier Coleman
No Updates
Mike Catapano
News
Catapano (knee) was placed on IR Tuesday, Connor Hughes of New Jersey Advanced Media reports.

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.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Frank Beltre
News
The Raiders signed linebacker Bojay Filimoeatui and cornerback Jansen Watson, and waived cornerback Johnny Adams, linebacker Frank Beltre and receiver D.J. Coles, reports the Bay Area News Group.
Jordan Jenkins
News
Jenkins (calf) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against Buffalo.

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.

Josh McCown
News
McCown will compete with Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg during training camp for the starting quarterback job, ESPN.com reports.

McCown signed a one-year contract with the Jets back in March, and while it has always been expected that he will be the opening day starter, head coach Todd Bowles made it clear Wednesday that it will be an open competition. Given the struggles of Petty last season and the team's lack of trust to even give Hackenberg a shot, McCown certainly has to be viewed as the front runner.

Charone Peake
News
Peake (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

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.

Ben Braden
No Updates
Anthony Johnson
News
The Patriots opted to waive Johnson on Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

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.

Patrick Gamble
No Updates
Christian Hackenberg
News
Hackenberg will compete with Bryce Petty and Josh McCown during training camp for the starting quarterback job, ESPN.com reports.

Hackenberg did not take a single snap last season despite the Jets' significant struggles under center, and while McCown is certainly the front-runner given his experience in the league, it's not out of the question that Hackenberg could beat the veteran out. Either way, the Jets' passing attack isn't expected to be prolific this season, so even if Hackenberg wins the job, he's unlikely to be a strong fantasy option.

Corey Lemonier
News
Lemonier was re-signed by the Jets on Thursday.

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.

Randell Johnson
News
Johnson has signed with the Jets.

Johnson spent a majority of the season on the Rams' practice squad, but will look to serve as a depth option at linebacker for the Jets behind the likes of Darron Lee and David Harris.

Chandler Catanzaro
News
Catanzaro didn't receive a restricted free-agent tender from the Cardinals, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Marcus Gilchrist
News
Gilchrist (knee) was released by the Jets on Thursday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

The Jets were reportedly waiting until Gilchrist could pass a physical to waive him. The addition of multiple safeties, including first-round pick Jamal Adams, during the draft all but insured the team would eventually release him. Gilchrist will be entering his age 28 season in 2017 and will likely catch on as a starter or top backup with another team.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Julian Stanford
News
Stanford re-signed with the Jets on Monday.

Stanford was released by the Jets in a procedural move last Friday but now returns as expected after just a couple of days. The 26-year-old played nine games for New York last season, totaling 22 tackles while also starting three of those contests. After dealing with an ankle problem last term, Stanford will hope to make the team's roster again as a depth linebacker and special teams contributor.

Antonio Allen
News
Allen (concussion) was placed on the Jets' injured reserve list Monday, Dennis Waszak Jr. of AP Sports reports.

Allen was waived/injured Saturday, but ultimately cleared waivers and will revert to the Jets' IR.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Austin Seferian-Jenkins
News
Seferian-Jenkins has been suspended two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 3 vs. Miami

No Updates
Darron Lee
News
Lee (ankle) is ready to play in Sunday's game against the Rams, ESPN reports.

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.

Quinton Patton
News
The Jets and Patton (foot) agreed to terms on a contract Thursday, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.

A fourth-round pick of the 49ers in 2013, Patton managed just six receptions across 10 games in his first two seasons before landing a regular role within the offense. Despite the uptick in snaps beginning in 2015, uninspiring offenses under the direction of head coaches Jim Tomsula and Chip Kelly didn't translate to significant output, as evidenced by a combined 67 catches (on 120 targets) for 802 yards and one touchdown during that stretch. With the move to New York, Patton will now be jostling with a number of options -- wideouts Eric Decker (shoulder), Quincy Enunwa, and Robby Anderson, plus pass-catching backs Matt Forte (knee) and Bilal Powell -- in an offense led by graybeard quarterback Josh McCown.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Eric Decker
News
Decker (shoulder) said he will be ready for the start of training camp in July, Newsday's Bob Glauber reports.

Coming off a 2016 season that was essentially wiped out by hip and shoulder injuries which both required surgery, Decker is taking part in the Jets' voluntary offseason workouts in anticipation of being a full go for the start of training camp. There's been speculation the team could trade or release him once he's able to pass a physical, as the Jets already kicked off the rebuilding process this offseason by parting ways with Brandon Marshall, Darrelle Revis and Nick Mangold. It won't be surprising if the veteran wideout is ultimately retained, as all three of the aforementioned players will be 32 or older by Week 1, while Decker just recently turned 30 and carries reasonable cap hits of $8.75 million (2017) and $9 million (2018) for the final two seasons of his contract. The Jets are expected to have an open competition at quarterback between Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.

Jordan Leggett
News
The Jets selected Leggett in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 150th overall.

Leggett is a third- or fourth-round talent, but he likely fell to this point over work ethic concerns. If Leggett puts in the necessary work, though, he could earn playing time surprisingly early with the Jets. At 6-foot-5, 258 pounds, Leggett is big enough to block but athletic enough to make a real impact as a pass catcher. Meanwhile, the Jets might have the worst tight end depth chart in the league.

Jonotthan Harrison
No Updates
Robby Anderson
News
Anderson was charged Sunday in Miami with a felony count of resisting arrest with violence and obstruction of justice, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Anderson was in Miami to attend a music festival and was either on the stage or backstage when he was arrested by police. There isn't much information available about the incident aside from the charges Anderson received, so the Jets will likely remain mum on the matter until the legal process is sorted out. As an undrafted rookie last season, Anderson emerged as one of the Jets' better receivers, recording 42 catches for 587 yards and two touchdowns. With Brandon Marshall leaving for the Giants this offseason, Anderson could take on a larger role in 2017.

Myles White
News
White signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets on Wednesday, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

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.

Jamal Adams
News
The Jets selected Adams in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, sixth overall.

Adams is the top safety in the draft and a likely Day 1 starter despite the presences of Calvin Pryor and Marcus Gilchrist. Arguably the top defender on a dominant LSU defense, Adams (6-feet, 214 pounds) showed 4.4 speed at the LSU pro day while otherwise showing good agility numbers at the Combine (6.96-second three-cone, 4.13-second 20-yard shuttle). Because of the position he plays and the likely playing time awaiting him, Adams figures to arrive on the IDP radar right away.

Deon Simon
News
Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland (concussion) did not travel with the team to London, where the team plays the Dolphins on Sunday.

With the Jets having waived nose tackle Deon Simon after practice Wednesday, we'd expect the team to add tight end depth to the roster in advance of the game.

Alex Balducci
News
Balducci was claimed off waivers by the Jets on Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

Balducci was a defensive lineman throughout his collegiate career at Oregon, but made the switch to the offensive line last season with the 49ers. He ended up playing just two games for the 49ers after being promoted from the team's practice squad, but was eventually cut this offseason. He'll now head to the Jets, where he'll add depth on the interior of the line if he's able to make the regular-season roster.

ArDarius Stewart
News
Stewart could earn a Week 1 starting job, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports.

Selected in the third round of the 2017 draft at No. 79 overall, Stewart landed with a team that could give him an immediate role in three-wide sets. Quincy Enunwa and Eric Decker (shoulder) are locked in -- assuming the latter isn't traded or released -- but the third spot should be up for grabs due to a series of unexpected developments this offseason. 2015 second-round selection Devin Smith (knee) has been ruled out for the year, Jalin Marshall (suspension) will miss the first four games, and Robby Anderson could face league punishment for a recent arrest. It's thus possible Stewart will be left to compete with the likes of Quinton Patton (foot) and Charone Peake. The rookie wasn't overly productive at Alabama and doesn't have a great athletic profile -- 4.49 40-yard dash and 34-inch vertical at 5-foot-11, 204 pounds -- but he's a strong route runner with experience in a pro-style offense.

Brandon Shell
No Updates
Quincy Enunwa
News
Former teammate Brandon Marshall spoke highly of Enunwa and the Jets' other young wide receivers, NJ.com reports. "Quincy [Enunwa] and Robbie [Anderson] and Jalin [Marshall], leaving that room behind -- that is a special room, a young and talented group," said Marshall.

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.

Brian Parker
News
The Jets signed Parker on Thursday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Undrafted in 2015, Parker subsequently made nine appearances with the Chiefs during that season, corralling one of two targets for six yards. The tight end didn't make the cut last preseason, though, only to spend two days with the Jets before he was waived/injured just before the start of the regular season. After a year out of football, he'll have a chance to land a roster spot in a Jets positional group bereft of much talent.

Leonard Williams
News
Williams recorded half a sack along with 10 tackles Monday against the Colts.

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.

Bryce Petty
News
Petty (shoulder) said he is 100 percent healthy for the start of OTAs, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

The 2015 fourth-round selection had surgery in early January to repair a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. His recovery seems to have gone according to plan, giving him plenty of time to make his mark in a quarterback competition with Josh McCown and Christian Hackenberg. Petty appears the least likely of the trio to earn the Week 1 starting job, as he completed only 56.4 percent of his passes last season, with three touchdowns and seven interceptions in six games. McCown has a huge advantage in experience, while Hackenberg has the benefit of higher draft status as a 2016 second-round selection.

Darrelle Revis
News
Revis won't face league discipline for the felony assault charges that were dropped in March, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Revis was arrested in February and charged for his alleged involvement in an altercation that left two men unconscious. After his March hearing, however, all charges against Revis were dropped. Upon completing its own review, the NFL also saw no reason to punish Revis, who was released by the Jets shortly after the incident. Now a free agent, the 31-year-old can ensure prospective teams of his availability, even though his poor performance last season may be the larger concern on that front.

Jeremy Clark
News
Clark, who was drafted in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 197th overall, signed a four-year contract with the Jets on Wednesday, Randy Lange of NewYorkJets.com reports.

Clark certainly looks the part of an NFL defender at 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, but he does have an ACL tear in his injury history. If Clark can regain his pre-injury form, he could be a steal at this part of the draft. Clark was one of four defensive back taken by the Jets this season as they look to revamp their secondary.

Mike Pennel
News
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 the open market. 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.

Muhammad Wilkerson
News
Wilkerson will need to rebound from a disappointing 2016 campaign or risk being released next offseason, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Wilkerson signed a massive five-year, $86 million extension with the Jets last July, only to then see his production dip from 64 tackles and 12.0 sacks in 2015 to just 58 stops and 4.5 sacks last season. Amid tardiness and concerns over his effort last year, the fact that Wilkerson's contract currently contains no fully guaranteed money after this season gives the Jets the option of cutting their loses should he continue to underwhelm. While that should motivate Wilkerson to return to his Pro-Bowl best, unlike last year, an offseason without having to rehab from surgery on a broken leg also bodes in his favor. Overall, the 27-year-old will need to prove worthy of his hefty contract in order to reap the benefits of it down the road.

Khiry Robinson
News
Robinson (leg) has been invited to participate in the Jets' minicamp as a tryout.

The Jets released Robinson in March, as he had a prolonged recovery from a broken leg. However, the team has opted to bring him back to minicamp as a tryout. Coach Todd Bowles stated, "We just wanted to see where he was physically" in reference to Robinson's invite. The veteran figures to compete for a job providing depth at running back if he is able to stay healthy.

Dexter McDougle
News
McDougle was promoted to the Jets' active roster on Saturday, Ralph Vacchiano of Sportsnet New York reports.

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.

Marcus Maye
News
The Jets selected Maye in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 39th overall.

Maye was a standout performer in a dominant Florida defense, and at the Florida pro day he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds while showing sound agility numbers. It's a strange pick after the Jets took safety Jamal Adams in the first round.

Bilal Powell
News
Powell rushed 22 times for 122 yards and caught all three of his targets for 15 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 30-10 win over the Bills. He finishes the season with 131 carries for 722 yards and three touchdowns and 58 catches for 388 receiving yards and two scores.

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.

Elijah McGuire
News
The Jets selected McGuire in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 188th overall.

McGuire (5-foot-10, 214 pounds) may be damaged goods at this point due to foot injuries, but in his peak form he was one of the most remarkable college football players of recent memory. He was incredible in 2013 and 2014, running for 2,127 yards and 22 touchdowns on just 269 carries -- good for an average of 7.9 yards per carry -- and he also caught 67 passes for 852 yards and five touchdowns over those two years. In his final two seasons at Lafayette, however, McGuire limped his way to just 2,174 yards (4.9 YPC) and 20 touchdowns on the ground. The pass-catching skills remained sterling -- he caught 63 passes for 542 yards and five scores the last two years -- but his explosiveness just never came back. The Jets will hope that McGuire can get a little luck with his health and regain the form he showed earlier.

Frankie Hammond
News
Hammond has signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets.

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.

Brandon Bostick
News
The Jets chose not to tender Bostick, making him an unrestricted free agent, the New York Post reports.

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.

Calvin Pryor
News
The Jets informed Pryor on Tuesday that his fifth-year option won't be exercised, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Pryor remains under contract for 2017 in what will be the last year of his rookie deal, but it's expected that the 24-year-old, whose play has been marred by inconsistency over his first three NFL seasons, will see his role decrease. The Jets had been shopping Pryor prior to last weekend's NFL draft, and though they found no takers, the team made upgrading the safety spot a priority in their selections. With first-round pick Jamal Adams and second-round pick Marcus Maye now in the fold, it's quite possible that Pryor may only see the field when coach Todd Bowles deploys three-safety packages. That would allow Pryor to play closer to the line of scrimmage more frequently rather than in coverage, an area where he's struggled throughout his career.

Bryson Keeton
News
Keeton signed a contract with the Jets on Friday.

Keeton is an undrafted rookie out of Montana State who has spent the entire season thus far on the Jets' practice squad. It isn't certain how much playing time he'll receive in his first game as a pro.

Julian Howsare
News
Howsare signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets on Wednesday, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

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.

Ryan Fitzpatrick
News
Fitzpatrick signed with the Buccaneers on Friday.

Fitzpatrick's deal is for one year and worth $3 million, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. His signing comes after Mike Glennon joined the Bears earlier this offseason, leaving a vacancy behind Jameis Winston in the Bucs' quarterback ranks. Entering his 13th season, Fitzpatrick boasts plenty of starting experience, but after a disastrous 2016 campaign that included 12 touchdowns against 17 interceptions for the Jets, the 34-year-old seems likely to be a backup for the remainder of his career.

Doug Middleton
No Updates
Josh Martin
News
Martin re-signed with the Jets on Thursday.

The 25-year-old special teams ace will return to the Jets in 2017 after one of his best professional seasons 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.

Morris Claiborne
News
Claiborne (ribs) signed his contract with the Jets on Saturday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

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.

Injury
Ribs - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kellen Davis
News
Davis (elbow) visited the Browns on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

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.

Injury
Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
David Harris
News
Harris posted 11 tackles Sunday against the Patriots.

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.

Jalin Marshall
News
Jets head coach Todd Bowles hinted that Marshall's upcoming four-game suspension could hurt his place on the depth chart, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Marshall was expected to compete with Robby Anderson and Devin Smith, among others, for slotting behind Eric Decker (shoulder) and Quincy Enunwa. Between his four-game PED suspension and the addition of free-agent signing Quinton Patton, it seems Marshall is in danger of sliding way down the depth chart, possibly even needing to compete for a roster spot during training camp. Things could open up a bit if the Jets eventually part ways with Decker as part of their ongoing rebuild.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 at Cleveland
Lawrence Thomas
News
Thomas (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve, the team announced Thursday.

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.

Rontez Miles

Miles recorded just one tackle during the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

Miles stepped up after Calvin Pryor briefly left the game due to injury. The 27-year-old has not seen a lot of action since undergoing season-ending surgery on his shin back in 2014.

Derrick Jones
News
The Jets selected Jones in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 204th overall.

Jones (6-foot-2, 189 pounds) is a lanky corner who is just an upside lottery ticket for the Jets at this point in the draft. At the Mississippi pro day he ran a 4.48-second 40 along with a 41-inch vertical and a remarkable 140-inch broad jump.

Williams signed his tender with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

The four-year vet racked up 33 combined tackles and two interceptions one year ago. Given his production over the last two seasons and the Jets' dwindling secondary that no longer includes Darrelle Revis, Williams projects to function as one the team's primary cornerbacks heading into training camp.

Lorenzo Mauldin
News
Mauldin indicated Monday that he was dealing with a partially torn ankle ligament, but won't require surgery, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

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.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brandon Wilds
News
Wilds (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

With Matt Forte out, Bilal Powell is in line to start Sunday's game, with Wilds and Brandon Burks on hand to work in complementary roles in the Jets' Week 17 offense.

Romar Morris
News
Morris was waived by the Jets on Monday with an injury designation, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

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.

Smith underwent surgery on a torn ACL in April and was ruled out for all of the 2017 season. It's possible that the team moves him to injured reserve if he clears waivers.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Out for the start of training camp
Ronald Martin
News
Martin was called up from the practice squad Tuesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Steve McLendon
News
McLendon (hamstring) was ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Bills.

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.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Braedon Bowman
News
Bowman (knee) has been placed on the injured reserve, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

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.

Chad Hansen
News
The Jets selected Hansen in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 141st overall.

Hansen (6-foot-2, 202 pounds) is a strong value this late in the draft. He's arguably as good or better of a prospect than third-round pick ArDarius Stewart. Of course, the question of how good these guys are only matters so much when you factor in the team setting, which couldn't be worse. Not only do the Jets lack viable passers, but they already have Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson as starting candidates. If he does get an eventual shot on a competent offense, though, Hansen could thrive. He was uniquely productive for California last year, catching 92 passes for 1,249 yards and 11 touchdowns in 10 games, and he put forth an athletic profile that should satisfy for a slot wideout role at the least.

Buster Skrine
News
Skrine (concussion) practiced in full Thursday.

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.
