Hewitt racked up seven solo tackles in Sunday's season finale against the Patriots and finishes the year with a team-high 134 tackles.
Hewitt also picked up two sacks as the leader of New York's depleted linebacker corps while blowing his previous high of 75 tackles out of the water. The Jets will likely look to bring back the free agent this offseason to pair Hewitt with C.J. Mosley, who is expected to return after opting out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns. There's room for both players to start at inside linebacker in the Jets' 3-4 scheme.
Hewitt totaled a team-high 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Rams.

Hewitt was a one-man wrecking crew once again Week 12, notching a sack-forced fumble on Miami quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in the third quarter, and scooping up a Patrick Laird fumble for a sizeable return two Dolphins possessions later. Hewitt has already smashed his previous career high in tackles (75) by reaching 91 with five games still remaining in the regular-season slate.

Hewitt's up to 67 tackles through eight games, as New York's defense continues to spend the majority of the game on the field, with the offense failing to hold up its end of the bargain.

Hewitt played every defensive snap in Sunday's divisional loss, and with the Jets' linebacker corps banged up, Hewitt stepped up.

Hewitt will rejoin New York's linebacker corps, where he stands to kick off the 2020 campaign as a backup option behind C.J. Mosley (groin) and Avery Williamson (knee). With injury concerns still lingering around both interior starters, however, the 27-year-old could possess some upside as a stash in IDP formats.

Hewitt was tagged as doubtful for this contest, so it's not surprising he's unable to go. Both of the Jets' inside linebackers will be sitting out since C.J. Mosley (groin) is in the midst of an extended absence. Paul Worrilow and James Burgess figure to start in their places Sunday.
