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.
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.
Powell took over the Jets' backfield toward the end of last year in place of the injured Forte, and while there have been plenty of expectations that Powell could win the starting job, NJ.com is obviously not buying it. Nevertheless, Forte's upside will certainly be capped due to Powell's presence, as well as that of rookie Elijah McGuire, who figures to get more work as the season unfolds.
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.
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.
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.
Davis was traded from the Browns to the Jets at the start of June, but in order for the deal to be completed, he had to take a significant pay cut. Originally expected to make $3.7 million, Davis is now expected to pull in just $1 million, although there are some incentives worked into the deal where he could make some of that money back. The Jets recently released middle linebacker David Harris, so Davis is one of a few different options to potentially take over his spot in the lineup.
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.
McCown, who signed a one-year deal with New York after appearing in five games for the Browns last season, is being pegged as the Jets' defacto starter given their lack of quality options behind him. However, after the 37-year-old wasn't as crisp as anticipated during minicamp, when Hackenberg actually overachieved, his grip on the starting gig could be loosening. In the end, though, McCown's play during training camp and the preseason will ultimately determine whether he wins the job, leaving much to be monitored going forward.
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.
Hackenberg is reportedly ahead of Bryce Petty for the Jets' No. 2 quarterback job, but the second-year pro could be closing the gap on projected starter Josh McCown some. According to the report, the 37-year-old McCown underwhelmed during minicamp, which made the timing of Hackenberg's improvement all the better. However, with training camp and the preseason still ahead, Hackenberg will have to sustain his challenge to unseat the veteran.
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.
Given the departure of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, the Jets now have a massive void at wide receiver heading into training camp. As a result, it appears they'll be open to plenty of competition with a roster that currently holds 14 wideouts -- all of whom have four years or less experience in the league. Previously with the Bears, Wilson recorded 56 receptions and three touchdowns over four seasons, but he failed to make a lasting impact in the team's offensive game plan. The 6-foot-4 Wilson -- selected by Chicago in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft - suited up in just three games in 2016 and ended his campaign on IR with a broken foot. He'll now get a fresh start with a team that definitely has some job openings at his position.
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.
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 assured 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.
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.
Allen was waived/injured Saturday, but ultimately cleared waivers and will revert to the Jets' IR.
The Jets used their tight ends mostly as blockers under former offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, and with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker now gone, the wide receiver group is incredibly light. Seferian-Jenkins has reportedly looked good during OTAs, though his season will be stunted a bit due to his two-game suspension to start the year, which could give rookie tight end Jordan Leggett some early opportunities.
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.
Patton underwent foot surgery in December and has yet to fully recover. With there likely being at least 10 receivers ahead of him on the 90 man depth chart, he faced long odds to make the roster even if he was healthy. Once his foot heals, Patton will look to catch on with another team in 2017.
Todman spent the 2016 season in Indianapolis, where the veteran running back took over as the Colts' primary kick returner after WR Quan Bray landed on injured reserve. He'll likely need to earn a role on special teams with the Jets as well in order to make the final 53-man roster. With incumbent return man Jalin Marshall (suspension) set to miss the first four games of the regular season, Todman definitely has a chance.
Beachum -- who underwent surgery back in 2015 -- didn't miss a single game in 2016 but was a fixture on the injury report during the second half of the season. Considering he was recently cleared to run full speed, it shouldn't be long until he's able to join his teammates on the field.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Balducci was a defensive lineman throughout his collegiate career at Oregon, but made the switch to the offensive line last season as a member of the 49ers. He ended up playing just two games for the 49ers after being promoted from the team's practice squad and was eventually cut during the offseason. He'll now head to the Jets, where he'll serve in a depth role at guard if he's able to make the 53-man roster out of training camp.
Selected in the third round of this year's draft at No. 79 overall, Stewart couldn't have landed in a better position to earn immediate playing time, though the likelihood of poor quarterback play figures to limit his productivity even if he's regularly on the field. His bid for a starting role did take a bit of a hit when he missed time at OTAs due to a thumb injury which ultimately required surgery in June. With the rookie already slated to miss minicamp, the Jets decided it was best that he also have surgery on a lingering groin injury that likely would've required attention at some point in his career. In the meantime, Eric Decker's release further thinned out a shaky receiving corps, leaving Quincy Enunwa as the No. 1 target and Robby Anderson -- who may be facing a suspension -- as the team's only other wideout with any real NFL track record. Even if he misses a good chunk of camp, Stewart should be in the mix for a key early-season role, with the Jets hoping his polish as a receiver makes up for his middling athletic measurables.
Enunwa's neck injury doesn't appear to be a serious issue at this point, but the Jets will proceed cautiously with their No. 1 receiver heading into training camp. Fellow wideout ArDarius Stewart will also be held out this week, so Robby Anderson, Charone Peake and Devin Street could all benefit from additional reps in practice.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Harper was released by the 49ers at the beginning of the month after one season with the team. In nine games with the 49ers, the 23-year-old recorded 13 receptions for 133 yards. He'll now a chance to compete with a whole host of wideouts vying for spots behind starters Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa.
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.
Powell took over the backfield at the end of last season when Forte was out injured, and while he played well enough for many to think he could win the starting job this year, he's still expected to be used regularly as the No. 2. Whether Powell wins the starting job or not, the two veterans figure to split touches, with rookie Elijah McGuire factoring in, which obviously limits their respective upsides.
McGuire, a sixth-round pick in this year's draft, could be used as a pass catcher out of the backfield, though with Forte and Powell expected to get a vast majority of the touches, it's tough to see the rookie making a meaningful fantasy impact if the incumbents stay healthy.
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.
Estime tore his Achilles during the first week of OTAs and after initially being released he was added back onto the roster under the reserve/injured list. The wideout does not cost the Jets a roster spot and will likely remain with the team for at least the remainder of the offseason, although there is no chance he plays this year.
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.
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.
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.
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.
White heads to New York after the Jets waived return specialist Brisly Estime. A former Bill, he recorded two interceptions and four passes defensed in 15 games, including four starts, last season. The 27-year-old will compete for a spot on the 53-man roster in September.
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.
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.
Ijalana, who re-signed with the Jets in March on a two-year deal, is projected to be healthy for training camp as the knee issue isn't a long-term concern at this point. He'll look to earn the starting spot at left tackle once again in 2017 upon his return to full health.
Paysinger spent his first four seasons in New York with the Giants, before playing for the Dolphins the past two years. The 28-year-old is coming off the second-best season of his career, as he totaled 59 tackles and a fumble recovery in 2016. His signing will help bolster the Jets' depth at linebacker after the release of David Harris earlier this week.
Thomas saw his 2016 season end prematurely due to a concussion after playing in just eight games. In his four years with the Steelers, Thomas was never able to improve upon the 29 tackles of his rookie campaign, totaling just 24 tackles over his last three seasons with Pittsburgh. Now with the Jets, Thomas will need to earn a spot as a depth safety and special teams player.
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.
Mauldin turned himself in Wednesday morning after allegedly attacking a man in nightclub almost two months ago. "We have been monitoring the developments and this matter is under review of personal conduct policy," NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said. Mauldin has been competing for a starting linebacker role throughout minicamp.
Street heads to New York after the Jets put their third wideout, Quinton Patton (foot), on injured reserve Monday. Street was released by the Patriots a little less than two weeks ago after spending five games with the Colts last season. The Jets currently have 14 receivers on their active roster but more than half of them will likely fail to make the 53-man roster. Street will have to separate himself from the crowd if he wants to be around in September.
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 was waived with an injury designation last week and after going unclaimed, was placed on the Jets injured reserve list. It marks Smith's second ACL tear in three seasons, putting his NFL career into serious question.
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.
Hansen, who was held out of OTAs due to a hamstring issue, is missing out on this week's mandatory minicamp due to soreness in his knee. However, his absence sounds like more of a precautionary than anything. Look for him to be back to normal by training camp.
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.
