Position Listing
Geno Smith
News
Smith will enter OTAs atop the quarterback depth chart, head coach Todd Bowles said Saturday. "Without [Ryan Fitzpatrick] being on the team right now, Geno's first-team and then we'll go from there," Bowles said. "Obviously we're still working on a deal if we can get Fitzpatrick back. So until that's addressed and we take care of that situation right now, Geno will go into OTAs as a starter."

The Jets drafted quarterback Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the draft on Friday, and he'll likely compete for the backup job with Bryce Petty if the Jets are unable to bring Fitzpatrick back. Smith has failed to show any consistent production during his career, and the Jets are clearly still very much interested in bringing Fitzpatrick back, though the two sides continue to be very far apart on money. If Smith does somehow end up starting in Week 1, he'll at least have the best weapons of his career, with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker on the outside, Matt Forte out of the backfield and a healthy Jace Amaro.

Erin Henderson
News
Henderson re-signed with the Jets on Thursday.

Henderson played well toward the end of last season, including an 11-tackle performance against the Bills in Week 17, and while he could be in line for regular playing time next season, there is still a lot that can happen before training camp.

Sheldon Richardson
News
Richardson has been suspended for Week 1's matchup with the Bengals after violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Richardson will be eligible to return to the active roster the Monday after Week 1 concludes. In January the defensive lineman pleaded guilty to resisting arrest following a road race incident that took place last July. As a Pro Bowler and former Defensive Rookie of the Year, Richardson plays an instrumental role in the Jets' hard-nosed defense but in his absence the team will likely turn to Leonard Williams and Jarvis Jenkins to carry more of a workload.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 2 at Buffalo
Kevin Short
No Updates
Chandler Worthy
News
Wide receiver Chandler Worthy has been signed to the Texans' practice squad.

Worthy was released from the active roster earlier this week. He knows the system and has appeared in three games, both as a receiver and kick returner, so Worthy has familiarity with the system.

Shelby Harris
News
The Raiders announced they elevated defensive end Shelby Harris from the practice squad and put tight end Brian Leonhardt (concussion) on injured reserve. Oakland signed kicker Michael Palardy to take Harris' spot on the practice squad.
Jarvis Harrison
No Updates
Jesse Davis
No Updates
Matt Forte
News
Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey recently suggested he will adjust his system as necessary to suit Forte's strengths, ESPN.com reports.

Asked how Forte will fit in his scheme, Gailey simply replied, "That's not the question. The question is, how do we adjust the system to fit Matt Forte?" Fortunately for all parties, Forte is one of the better pass-catching backs in NFL history, which should make him a natural fit in Gailey's spread attack. Bilal Powell will likely have a role and Khiry Robinson could also be in the mix, but the Jets seemingly intend for Forte to join Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker as centerpieces of the offense. The team has an unimpressive group of tight ends, along with shaky depth behind its top duo at wideout.

Bruce Carter
News
Carter agreed to terms with the Jets, SportsTalkFLA's Jenna Laine reports.

Carter has rare athleticism for a linebacker, but instincts, durability and general effectiveness have been an issue his whole career. It's possible that coach Todd Bowles could get Carter to overachieve, though.

Taiwan Jones
No Updates
Juston Burris
News
The Jets selected Burris in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 118th overall.

Burris a big corner who might not have the athleticism to run alongside the league's faster receivers, but college quarterbacks generally declined to throw his way at North Carolina State. The Jets will presumably count on Burris to provide some push in press coverage.

Jarvis Jenkins
News
Jenkins has signed a three-year contract with the Jets, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Jenkins started all 15 games he played for the Bears last season, recording a career-high 32 tackles and four sacks while doing so. In joining the Jets, Jenkins bolsters their front-seven options with another experienced defender.

Kendall James
News
The Chargers have waived guard Jeff Baca from their active roster and cornerback Kendall James from their practice squad.

Baca was released by Dallas in mid-November and played in just one game for San Diego.

Zac Stacy
News
Stacy (ankle) is not expected to participate in spring practices but should be ready for training camp. NJ.com reports.

Stacy broke his ankle in mid-November and will have to battle Khiry Robinson for the No. 3 running back spot in training camp, with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell comfortably in the top two spots on the depth chart. Given his situation even when healthy, it's tough to see Stacy making a meaningful fantasy contribution this season if Forte and Powell stay healthy.

Mike Catapano
News
After missing the entire 2014 season with a gastrointestinal virus, Chiefs defensive end Mike Catapano was able to participate in the team's OTA on Wednesday, reports The Kansas City Star.

"Every time I step on the field now it's with purpose and with extra vigor that I never really had," Catapano said. "It feels great. I feel better than ever."

Catapano played in 15 games during his rookie season in 2013 and he totaled four tackles and one sack. He said he's ready to surpass that in 2015.

"I'm ready to show that I offer a lot to this team. I'm ready to step up in big situations and starting situations," Catapano said. "I just want to keep getting better every day… and play to the best of my abilities."

Jordan Jenkins
No Updates
Charone Peake
News
The Jets selected Peake in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 241st overall.

Peake is a former top recruit who has good size and athleticism, but he dealt with a lot of injuries at Clemson and struggled to earn targets his whole career. If not for lead wideout Mike Williams getting hurt and freshman Deon Cain's various disciplinary issues, Peake might have been as low as fourth on the Clemson depth chart for all of 2015.

Trevor Reilly
News
Jets linebacker Trevor Reilly sustained a head injury during Sunday’s game against the Vikings. The team reported Reilly will not return.
Christian Hackenberg
News
The Jets selected Hackenberg in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 51st overall.

Hackenberg was profoundly ineffective for his last two years at Penn State, but his arm talent gets him drafted in the second round anyway. All of pocket presence, route progressions and accuracy were huge problems for Hackenberg, so the Jets are banking on the theory that all of Hackenberg's struggles were the fault of Penn State coaches. Few players are given so much benefit of the doubt, but Hackenberg definitely has the arm to develop into a starter if the rest of his game comes along.

Tom Hackett
No Updates
Kenbrell Thompkins
News
Thompkins has been extended the low tender ($1.67 million) by the Jets, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

The Jets will have the right of first refusal on any contract Thompkins signs, so if they really want him back in New York, he'll be wearing green again next year. Thompkins has caught 38 passes for 427 yards and no touchdowns over the past two seasons.

Zach Sudfeld
News
Sudfeld (knee) re-signed with the Jets on Thursday, NJ.com reports.

The Jets cut Jeff Cumberland recently, which theoretically moves Sudfeld up the depth chart, but with Jace Amaro expected to have a big impact this season, Sudfeld's fantasy upside remains fairly limited.

Marcus Gilchrist
News
Gilchrist recorded three tackles Sunday against the Jaguars.

Although Blake Bortles through 40 passes in this game, Gilchrist failed to record an interception in his third straight contest. In addition, he now has recorded fewer than four tackles in five of his last seven games.

Julian Stanford
News
The Lions put cornerback Nevin Lawson (dislocated toes) on injured reserve, signed cornerback Danny Gorrer and promoted linebacker Julian Stanford from the practice squad.
Darryl Morris
News
Texans linebacker Brian Cushing (knee) is active for the game against Tennessee after being listed as probable. He has 64 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in eight games.

Also suiting up for Houston are linebacker Max Bullough (hamstring), offensive tackle Tyson Clabo (foot), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (knee), safety Kendrick Lewis (knee), linebacker Mike Mohamed (hip), cornerback Darryl Morris (thigh), nose tackle Ryan Pickett (back), safety D.J. Swearinger (ankle) and linebacker Jeff Tarpinian (ankle).

Lac Edwards
No Updates
Darron Lee
News
The Jets selected Lee in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 20th overall.

Lee is generally light to project as a 3-4 inside linebacker, but coach Todd Bowles might have seen Deone Bucannon in Arizona last year and got some ideas. Lee is an exceptional athlete for a linebacker, boasting 4.47 speed and a 133-inch broad jump, and he should prove to be a disruptive presence under Bowles' watch. In addition to his burning athleticism, Lee demonstrated at least adequate instincts at Ohio State and consistently showed a high motor.

Michael Liedtke
No Updates
Eric Decker
News
Decker joined the Jets for OTAs on Tuesday, Brian Costello of the NY Post reports.

Decker and Brandon Marshall both missed the start of OTAs, perhaps to show solidarity with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who still hasn't received a contract to his liking. This may be a sign that Fitzpatrick is close to signing, but it's also possible the wide receivers simply feel they've made their point. Given his lack of alternatives, Fitzpatrick still figures to come to terms with the Jets eventually, be it within the next few weeks or during training camp.

Tommy Bohanon
News
The Jets placed fullback Tommy Bohanon on injured reserve, ending his season. He'll undergo surgery for a broken collarbone.
Robby Anderson

Julien Obioha
No Updates
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.

Brandon Shell
No Updates
Quincy Enunwa
News
Enunwa (neck)caught one of four pass targets for 5 yards Sunday against the Bills.

Enunwa just completed the first of a three-year contract with the Jets. With the Jets leaning heavily upon Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker in the passing game, Enunwa saw between three and four targets in the majority of his games, and he ended the season with 315 receiving yards. It's unlikely that he'll be drafted in standard-size redraft leagues in 2016, but he certainly has run to grow in the Jets offense.

Kyle Williams
News
The Broncos placed wide receiver Kyle Williams on injured reserve, the team announced on Monday, two days after he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury at practice. 

Williams missed all of last season after suffering an injury at the end of Kansas City training camp. 

Leonard Williams
News
Williams recorded three sacks and 63 tackles in his rookie season.

Williams showed improvement throughout his rookie campaign and recorded 2.5 of this three sacks over the last five games of the season. He has three years remaining on his rookie deal, and if the Jets decided to let Muhammad Wilkerson walk in free agency, he'd become an immediate starter. However, if Wilkerson re-signs, the team could have three excellent defensive linemen to form an impressive rotation.

Bryce Petty
News
Coach Todd Bowles said Monday quarterbacks Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb) and Geno Smith (shoulder) are "in the same boat" in terms of their chances of playing Sunday against the Jaguars, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Per Cimini, the Jets' Week 9 starter is "a multiple choice QB question," with options including Fitzpatrick, Smith, Bryce Petty or even a yet-to-be-signed signal-caller. It's a situation to stay away from this week in Fantasy, unless things clear up in short order, which seems like an unlikely scenario here.

Darrelle Revis
News
Revis practiced Wednesday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his wrist in March, NJ.com reports.

Revis was limited in his work, but it's certainly a major step in the right direction. Despite the return, it remains unclear if Revis will be able to full participate in training camp next month.

Injury
Wrist - Probable for start of season
Muhammad Wilkerson
News
Wikerson said Wednesday that he expects to be fully recovered from his broken right leg in time to play in Week 1, the Associated Press reports.

Wilkerson, who suffered the injury in the last week of the 2015 season, didn't specify when he would be able to start participating in training camp, but that his rehab is progressing quickly. He recently signed a new five-year, $85 million contract and is expected to be a major focal point of the Jets' pass rush after picking up 12 sacks last year.

Injury
Leg - Probable for start of season
Nick Mangold
News
Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin has been declared inactive for Week 17’s game against the Dolphins.

Harvin is nursing a rib injury he suffered during Week 16’s game against the Patriots.

Also listed as inactive are T.J. Barnes, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Wesley Johnson, Nick Mangold, Walt Powell and Matt Simms.

Khiry Robinson
News
Although he may start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Robinson (leg) should be available at some point during the preseason, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Robinson is still making his way back from the broken tibia he suffered Nov. 1 in what would ultimately be the final game of his three-year stint with the Saints. The 220-pound former UDFA isn't known for his quickness or pass-catching skills, but he did display a powerful running style in New Orleans when he was healthy, even drawing occasional comparisons to former Saint (and Jet) Chris Ivory. The Jets added Robinson in March on a one-year, $1.175 million deal to help offset the loss of Jacksonville-bound Ivory, but the team also gave much larger contracts to fellow running backs Matt Forte (three years, $12 million) and Bilal Powell (three years, $11.25 million). Both known for their receiving skills, Forte and Powell are better fits than Robinson in OC Chan Gailey's spread-heavy offense, and yet it isn't out of the question that Robinson could still earn a role. Should he prove his health by the end of the preseason, the 26-year-old power back might emerge as a serious threat to poach goal-line and short-yardage work.

Dexter McDougle
News
According to the team's official website, the following players are not expected to dress for the Jets Friday night against the Giants: Dimitri PattersonJalen Saunders, Dee Milliner, Dexter McDougle, IK Enemkpali, Jeff Cumberland, Antwan Barnes.
Bilal Powell
News
Powell is re-signing with the Jets, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The Jets replaced Chris Ivory with Matt Forte, who should present Powell with more competition for targets. However, the Jets weren't the only team with interest in in Powell, and their decision to bring him back suggests they have a significant role in mind.

Brandon Bostick
News
The Vikings have claimed former Packers tight end Brandon Bostick, the team announced on Wednesday.

The 6-foor-3, 250-pound tight end was waived by Green Bay on Monday, about a month after his mistake on an onside kick allowed the Seahawks to come back and win the NFC Championship Game. Bostick spent two seasons with the Packers and registered nine catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns. With the addition of Bostick, the Vikings now have five tight ends on the active roster (Kyle Rudolph, Rhett Ellison, Chase Ford, Ryan Otten).

Calvin Pryor
News
Pryor ended the 2015 season with two interceptions, a forced fumble and 69 tackles.

Although Pryor only played in 13 games this year, he showed improvement in his second season, as he intercepted the first two passes of his career and increased his tackle total by nine from his rookie year. He's clearly in position to continue his progression, especially with head coach Todd Bowles preparing for his second season with the team's defensive system. Pryor's under contract for two more years with the Jets before the team can choose to exercise a fifth-year option in 2018.

Wes Saxton
News
Saxton was signed to the practice squad Wednesday.

If Jeff Cumberland or Kellen Davis are forced to miss time, Saxton would likely be moved from the practice squad to the active roster. He played 12 snaps in Week 4, but was previously removed from the active roster when Sheldon Richardson was reinstated from suspension.

Bryson Keeton

Tanner Purdum
News
Long snapper Tanner Purdum has re-signed with the Jets, according to the Associated Press.

Purdum, 29, has played 783 snaps since joining the Jets. He has never fumbled a snap, had a wild snap or been penalized.

Josh Martin
News
Linebacker Josh Martin was signed by the Bucs on Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers official website reports.

The third-year pro spent the last two seasons with Kansas City, and is currently listed as Lavonte David's primary backup at weakside linebacker on the Bucs depth chart. However, Martin figures to see the bulk of his playing time on special teams, where he excelled in 2014 over 321 snaps while with the Chiefs.

Kellen Davis
News
Davis will miss the remainder of OTAs after undergoing surgery on a torn ligament in his right thumb, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports

According to head coach Todd Bowles, Davis will be ready for the beginning of training camp in late July. The veteran tight end only had three receptions last season but could see an expanded role in 2016 after the Jets cut Jeff Cumberland earlier in the offseason.

Injury
Thumb - Probable for start of season
David Harris
News
Harris recorded 14 tackles Sunday against the Bills.

In his age-31 season, Harris posted his fourth straight year with at least 108 tackles. In 2016, he'll be in the second of a three-year deal and should continue to be an excellent fantasy option based on his triple-digit tackle ability.

Dion Bailey
News
Bailey (ankle) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Bills.

With both Bailey and Calvin Pryor out this week, look for Rontez Miles to start at safety opposite Marcus Gilchrist on Thursday.

Jalin Marshall
News
Marshall signed as an undrafted free agent with the Jets on Saturday, Ari Wasserman of Cleveland.com reports.

The Jets were on the phone with Marshall almost immediately after the draft had wrapped up as he was on the team's radar the entirety of the weekend. The versatile Marshall, with a 5-foot-10, 200 pound build, played downs as wide receiver, running back, quarterback, and returner during his two seasons at Ohio State. He'll look to add depth to a solidified Jets receiving corp built around Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and fellow former-Buckeye Devin Smith.

Ryan Clady

The Broncos placed left tackle Ryan Clady on injured reserve due to a torn ACL on Sunday, the team announced. 

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. 

Craig Watts
News
The Chargers announced their final round of roster cuts on Saturday, paring their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

The following players were let go by San Diego: WR Vincent Brown, LB Victor Aiyewa, DT Chas Alecxih, WR Torrence Allen, CB Crezdon Butler, S Alden Darby, CB Greg Ducre, TE Mike Flacco, T Michael Harris , WR Javontee Herndon, OLB Thomas Keiser, DL Joe Kruger, OLB Cordarro Law, S Adrian Phillips, WR Tevin Reese, T Jeremiah Sirles, QB Brad Sorensen, OLB Colton Underwood, G Craig Watts, T Kenny Wiggins, C Khalil Wilkes and DL Doug Worthington.
Rontez Miles
News
Jets safety Rontez Miles is lucky to have another chance in the NFL. A freak injury last season almost took this opportunity away, per ESPN.com.

Just before Miles was to make his 2014 debut last December, he suffered what appeared to be a basic calf bruise after a collision with teammate Marcus Williams. He soon realized this was no regular injury. Miles developed compartment syndrome, meaning the blood flow to his calf was restricted because of a buildup of pressure.

Miles was rushed to a hospital and underwent emergency surgery.

"It could've been amputated or the muscle could've been destroyed," Miles said after Wednesday's organized team activities. "It could've been a couple of months or a year or so of recovery, and it would've been hard to come back from that."

Miles has been fighting for a spot on the Jets' roster for the better part of two years. He played in one game in 2013 and was ready for another chance last season before his freak injury. His goal will be even harder now because the safety position is now very crowded, but that won't deter Miles.

"Hey, I can't complain," Miles said. "I'm here and I'm playing football."

Williams (knee) is active for Saturday's game against the Cowboys.

Williams missed the previous two games with a knee injury, but he was able to practice fully all week in preparation for Saturday's game. However, with Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie fully healthy heading into the marquee matchup, Williams only figures to see the field in obvious passing situations.

Lorenzo Mauldin
News
Mauldin is expected to be the starting weakside linebacker this season, ESPN.com reports.

Mauldin was a solid pass-rusher last season, but the Jets will need him to develop into a three-down player after they let Quinton Coples go last season and were forced to use defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson on the weak side. With Damon Harrison off to the Giants, the Jets will need their linebackers to step up in their run defense, which could generate plenty of tackles for Mauldin.

Nick Folk
News
Folk (quadriceps) has resumed kicking, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Folk sustained a Grade 1 quadriceps strain during pregame warmups in Week 9, and his fate for the season was sealed just two days later when he landed on injured reserve. In a seven-game sample prior to the injury, his success rate on field goals (13-for-16, or 81.3 percent) was in line with his career mark of 80.6 percent. Of note, though, was a perfect 19-for-19 from the new extra-point distance, which ensures his stature as the Jets' clear-cut kicker, assuming he regains his previous prowess.

Injury
Quadriceps - Probable for start of season
Breno Giacomini
News
Free agent tackle Corey Hilliard is expected to meet with the Jets, per Pro Football Talk.

Hilliard has played eight seasons in the NFL, the last six with the Lions.

Hilliard missed most of 2014 with a foot injury suffered during the season opener.

If the Jets sign Hilliard it's expected he'll serve as a swing tackle behind D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Breno Giacomini.
Jace Amaro
News
Amaro (shoulder) could be used as an H-back or fullback this season, though he believes he should be used as a pass-catching tight end, ESPN.com reports.

Amaro missed all of last season due to a torn labrum, and with the current coaching staff unfamiliar with him after they took over last season, it's unclear what kind of role he will be given. With Jeff Cumberland gone, the Jets will have Amaro compete with Kellen Davis and Zach Sudfeld, which is hardly considerable competition for a player who was a significant part of the passing game in college at Texas Tech.

Injury
Shoulder - Probable for start of season
Dakota Dozier
News
The Jets have ruled the following players inactive for Sunday's divisional clash against the Patriots in Week 16: T.J. Barnes, Dakota Dozier, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Wesley Johnson, Rontez Miles, Walt Powell and Matt Simms.
Brent Qvale
News
The Jets have cut their roster down to 53 by waiving a number of players.

Those on offense are quarterback Tajh Boyd and Matt Simms, wide receivers Clyde Gates and Stephen Hill, running backs Daryl Richardson and Alex Green, tight end Chris Pantale, linemen Brent Qvale and Caleb Schlauderaff.

The defenders imclude defensive backs Rontez Miles, Jeremy Reeves, Johnny Patrick, Dimitri Patterson and Brandon Dixon, linemen Zach Thompson, Kerry Hyder and Tevita Finau and linebackers Garrett McIntyre and A.J. Edds.

Linebacker Antwan Barnes has been placed on the PUP list.

Devin Smith
News
Smith (knee) is expected to begin training camp on the PUP list, making him "doubtful" to play in Week 1 against the Bengals, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.

The recovery timetable for an ACL tear has dwindled in recent years, but such injuries need to be explored on a case-by-case basis. Considering Smith's rookie campaign came to a close in Week 14, it's no surprise that the final stages of his rehabilitation will extend into training camp, at least, and potentially into the regular season. Once healthy, though, he'll have a prime opportunity to succeed in a receiving corps that's unproven behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for start of season

Steve McLendon
News
The Jets have signed McLendon to a three-year deal, worth up to $12 million, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

The addition of McLendon, who is viewed as a reliable run-stopper, will help offset the Jets' loss of Damon Harrison in free agency. The 30-year-old nose tackle is off the IDP radar, however, coming off a 2015 season in which he recorded 14 tackles and a sack in 16 games (including nine starts) with the Steelers.

Brian Winters
News
The Jets ruled out linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee), wideout Greg Salas (wrist/ankle) and offensive lineman Brian Winters (knee) from Thursday's game at New England.
Dee Milliner
News
Milliner's fifth-year contract option will not be exercised by the Jets, ESPN.com reports.

Milliner has been a huge disappointment since being drafted ninth overall in 2009, with numerous injuries derailing his career thus far. In fact, Milliner has been sidelined for 27 of 48 games since entering the league, and has already undergone surgery on both his Achilles and wrist, which followed the five total procedures he underwent in college. While Milliner will remain with the Jets for the upcoming campaign, he's expected to serve merely as a depth option within their secondary.

Brandon Marshall
News
Marshall joined the Jets for OTAs on Tuesday, Brian Costello of the NY Post reports.

Marshall and Eric Decker both skipped the beginning of OTAs, possibly with the intent of supporting unsigned quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. No deal has been reported, but it's likely just a matter of time before Fitzpatrick signs, as there aren't any other starting gigs available around the league. Marshall enjoyed one of his better seasons last year, setting a new career-high mark for touchdowns (14) while falling just nine catches (109) and six yards (1,502) shy of his personal bests.

Dominique Williams
News
The Cardinals have reached an injury settlement with Dominique Williams , according to FoxSports.

Williams was waived Tuesday due to an injury. He was initially picked up by the club to be part of the practice squad, but is knee will keep him out of action.

Buster Skrine
News
The Jets will make their 2015 season debut Sunday against the Browns, and the team will have plenty of new defensive acquisitions on display.

The secondary will feature the additions of cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie, nickel corner Buster Skrine and free safety Marcus Gilchrist. Plus, first-round pick Leonard Williams will move into the starting lineup due to Sheldon Richardson's four-game suspension.

"I believe we can be as good as we want," defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson said, per NJ.com. "We can be great. We can be the No. 1 defense in the league. We've just got to come in each and every week improving and do our jobs every Sunday."

The Jets defense is expected to be aggressive, especially with the blitz, under first-year coach Todd Bowles.

"This defense should be a playoff defense," Skrine said. "The defense should get us in the playoffs. We have the defense to it. We've got a lot of talent on this defense. It's just about all coming together."
