Cooper was waived by the 49ers a week ago but it didn't take him long to find a new home in the NFL. The defensive lineman played in five games this season for San Francisco, posting seven tackles and a half sack in that time. With the Jets dealing with several injuries on the defensive line, Cooper will be brought in to add some insurance to the unit.
Roberts played 60 defensive snaps against Miami in Week 3, recording seven solo tackles. He plays a good bunch as the No. 3 corner for the Jets, so a quick return would be favorable. His next opportunity to play will be Week 5 against the Browns.
If Forte is serious about keeping his career alive, he'll likely have to find a new home, as the Jets are expected to cut the 32-year-old during the offseason. Though he's still an effective pass catcher, Forte has been limited by chronic knee problems during his past two seasons in New York that have limited him to 3.7 yards per carry both in 2016 and 2017. As a result, it's unlikely that any team that picks Forte up this offseason would earmark the veteran for much more than a third-down role.
Carter was unable to practice this week while battling the groin injury and will miss his second game of the season as a result. The linebacker has been used almost exclusively on special teams this season, producing five tackles across 11 contests.
Whitehead signed with the Jets' practice squad in late November after a brief stint with the team to start the season, which ended by Whitehead being waived/injured. The 25-year-old is unlikely to have a significant impact offensively, but could be utilized on special teams.
Robinson was pulled over for driving carelessly when the police found marijuana-laced candy in his car. The Jets have no comment on the legal matter at this time. Robinson saw a major drop in reps once he was traded from the 49ers to the Jets in October, logging two tackles across six games in New York. The 24-year-old, who has had a troubled legal history, is under contract through the 2019 season, but this latest offense could hurt his chances of returning to the team.
Burris fills in at cornerback when there are injuries, but with the rest of the secondary is healthy, Burris wouldn't have played much on defense anyway. Expect Robert Nelson and Derrick Jones to fill in on special teams.
Judd was signed to the Jets' practice squad Oct. 24 after being released by the Titans. He originally signed with the latter after going undrafted this past offseason. He figures to mainly provide special teams help, as he is slotted as the No. 4 running back on the depth chart.
Coleman was rarely a participant outside of special teams, and although he'll be eligible to return in Week 16, it's unlikely the Jets activate him.
Coming off back-to-back seasons with fewer than 100 tackles, Davis beat his previous season-best by 19 while also adding 1.5 more sacks than his best effort before this past year. He is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and he will surely be one of the Jets' top priorities.
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.
The 38-year-old signal caller is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but he's leaning toward playing again in 2018, and if so would prefer to return to the Jets. Per the report, GM Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles have both said they'd like McCown back next season and a reunion makes sense, given that the team seems likely to draft its QB-of-the-future in April. In such a scenario McCown would be an ideal mentor/bridge starter for the team.
With just one target and one catch through three weeks, Peake had been unable to make the most of his opportunity in a less-than-stellar Jets receiving corps. He'll need to spend at least eight weeks on IR while recovering from the ankle injury, but the team might consider bringing him back late in the season if it doesn't have two more appealing players to activate. The 2016 seventh-round pick likely would still have a limited role if he's able to rejoin the Jets.
Awe signed with the Jets after playing for the British Columbia Lions of the CFL last year. The former Texas Tech linebacker has had stints on the practice squads of the Detroit Lions and the Buccaneers but has yet to make a roster after going undrafted in 2015. He'll look to make it through the offseason with the Jets and hold onto a depth slot in 2018.
McBride snagged eight of 15 targets for 144 yards across eight games for the Bears this season but was let go in late November. Shortly thereafter he joined the Jets' practice squad, where he finished out the year on the practice squad injury list due to an undisclosed issue. While it isn't clear if he's returned to full health at this juncture, McBride has plenty of time to recover before workouts start up in April.
Natson registered positive yards for the first time this season, but with the Jets eliminated from playoff contention, he may see an increase in snaps in the final two weeks. That being said, with Bryce Petty under center it's tough to see a fantasy breakout coming.
Thomas was on the Jets' practice squad and spent training camp with the team prior to falling victim to roster cutdowns. The 22-year-old should serve as the team's No. 3 running back now that veteran Matt Forte (knee) now that placed on injured reserve.
While still committed to Bryce Petty as the starting quarterback, Jets head coach Todd Bowles acknowledged Wednesday that Hackenberg could be used as a mid-game replacement. It's increasingly clear that the Jets don't view either player as a potential franchise quarterback, but there's no harm in giving Hackenberg a brief look, given that Petty has completed less than half his passes and produced just 4.1 yards per attempt this season. Hackenberg can't possibly be much worse.
Catanzaro was a steady producer during his first season in New York, hitting all of his attempts from 20-29, 30-39 and 50+. His PATs dropped considerably after moving from Arizona, and while the Jets' offense could improve next season, it's unlikely to be enough to push Catanzaro into another tier of fantasy options, if he stays in New York.
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.
While the total production wasn't overly impressive, Seferian-Jenkins had one of the better offensive seasons for a Jets tight end in recent memory. In fact, he had multiple touchdowns overturned this season due to questionable calls (or questionable NFL rules), which would have obviously boosted his total production. That said, he was never used much as a high-volume receiver, and it's unlikely to happen if he returns next year. The unrestricted free agent has indicated that he would like to come back, though he's apparently already turned down a two-year, $8 million contract offer.
Gwacham takes the roster spot of fellow linebacker Dylan Donahue (elbow), who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. Considering Donahue saw double-digit defensive snaps each of the past three weeks, Gwacham could have a small role with the Jets right out of the gate.
Lee's playing time greatly increased from his rookie season, and he paid it off by racking up 21 more tackles and two more sacks. He was very consistent for the Jets throughout the season and even reached double-digit tackles twice. Davis is signed through the 2019 season and there's every reason to believe he'll be back in the middle of the Jets' defense next season.
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.
Beachum frequented the injury report last season, but he played in all 16 regular-season games. Although he sat out during some offseason team activities due to residual soreness in his knee, that doesn't appear to be slowing him down in camp and shouldn't limit him come the regular season.
Leggett suffered the knee injury in Week 2 of the preseason and was unable to shake it during the regular season. With their open roster spot, the Jets signed defensive lineman Xavier Cooper.
Stringfellow, who went undrafted out of Ole Miss last spring, impressed in the preseason with the Dolphins and will look to carve out a reserve role at receiver with the Jets this offseason.
Kearse had a brief fall-off in Weeks 14 and 15 when he caught just four total passes for 32 yards, but ended 2017 right with back-to-back games with five receptions. Kearse ended up being a great find for the Jets following a late-offseason trade, finishing the year with 65 catches and 810 yards. He has one year remaining on his contract for a relative bargain of $5 million.
The 24-year-old Anderson faces three felony charges, a misdemeanor and five traffic violations, according to the arrest report. It's the second straight offseason for Anderson that has been clouded by legal issues, as he was previously arrested last May for pushing a police officer during a dispute at a Miami music festival. Anderson will report to court March 26 to address that incident, though it remains unclear when his trial for the Jan. 19 arrest will commence.
Adams had his moments of struggles, but overall he was a vital piece to the Jets' defense and stood out around the line of scrimmage. The lack of interceptions is a slight concern, but there is plenty of optimism within the team that those will come as he continues to improve.
Ealy was a late addition to the Jets' injury report on Friday after suffering a minor knee injury in practice at some point, but the defensive end will be able to suit up in Week 17. He could see an increased role as well, while starter Muhammad Wilkerson (coach's decision) has been ruled out.
Simon was with the Jets for the entire preseason but didn't survive final roster cuts ahead of the season opener. He takes the roster spot of Brian Winters (abdomen), who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Stewart, a third-round pick out of Alabama, was active for 15 games but was never able to improve on the two receptions he had in the opening week against Buffalo. With a full season under his belt, there will surely be higher expectations for 2018, but his fantasy prospects will be more dependent on the other wideouts on the depth chart and who will be under center for the Jets.
Shell sustained a concussion in Week 16 and evidently wasn't able to clear protocol in time. He'll finish the season as Pro Football Focus' 51st highest-graded offensive tackle to date, struggling more in run blocking than pass protection.
Two months removed from the procedure on a bulging disk in his neck, Enunwa is on course in his recovery. While he won't return this season, he expects to return to health in advance of the 2018 campaign. In the meantime, the Jets will continue to lean on wideouts Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse and Jeremy Kerley.
Hennessy was knocked out of last week's 23-0 loss to the Broncos after suffering a concussion. He was subsequently limited in practice throughout the week, but it appears he has cleared the concussion protocol. He will presumably resume his role as a depth offensive lineman for the club.
The drop in sacks from seven to two was certainly a concern for the Jets, but Williams is still easily the best defensive lineman on the team. He is likely to be asked to do even more in 2018, as the team is expected to move on from Muhammed Wilkerson, who has been incredibly poor the past two years. If that's the case, it's possible the Jets move Williams outside more, which could help his sack total move back up.
Petty started the final three games of the regular season in place of the injured Josh McCown (hand), completing 55 of 112 passes for one touchdown and three interceptions for the year. He was used almost exclusively as a backup during his time in New York, and while he always stayed ahead of Christian Hackenberg on the depth chart, there were very few glimpses of legitimate fantasy upside. Despite McCown heading for free agency, it became very clear that Petty was not going to be the quarterback of the future for the Jets, so his potential release would come as no surprise.
Clark, who had been in the final stages of recovering from a torn ACL he sustained in college, will have a chance to make his NFL debut with the Jets during their final four games this season. The 2017 sixth-rounder will likely serve in a depth role in the secondary and could see action on special teams.
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.
After signing a huge five-year, $86 million contract in 2016, Wilkerson saw a quick decline in his production, enough so that the Jets are fully ready to move on. Wilkerson was inactive for the last three games of the season, and it would take a significant change of heart for the team to bring him back. It's now all a matter of how they get rid of him, as he's slated to be a $20 million cap hit next season.
Brooks has only played a double-digit defensive snap count once this season, so even in his return, fantasy owners shouldn't expect much from the fourth-year pro.
Tomlinson was primarily used as a run blocker during his 14 appearances this season, and with Austin Seferian-Jenkins an unrestricted free agent, it seems pretty likely that the Jets will try to bring the former, a restricted free agent, back. Nevertheless, even if he moves up the depth chart ahead of the 2018 season, there's little reason to believe he'll become a usable asset in most fantasy formats.
Gragg broke his ankle in Thursday's preseason finale. He's likely to remain on IR for the duration of the season.
The injury initially sparked fears of a potential fracture, but head coach Todd Bowles indicated those tests came back negative. Maye finishes his rookie season with 79 tackles (58 solo), two interceptions and a forced fumble, playing in all 16 games.
It's tempting to pencil Powell in as the Jets' featured ballcarrier ahead of the 2018 season when considering teammate Matt Forte (knee) is a likely candidate to be released this offseason. However, it seems prudent to temper any and all expectations of that notion coming to fruition until after the team's running back corps is settled, as the Jets reportedly believe Powell is most effective when he doesn't need to consistently carry a heavy workload. There's thus a strong possibility the team adds backfield competition through either free agency or the draft. Meanwhile, 2017 sixth-rounder Elijah McGuire will return alongside Powell and should remain involved in the offense to at least some degree.
McGuire never found consistent playing time while trying to grab carries away from Bilal Powell and Matt Forte, though he showed a glimpse of his upside in Week 4 against Jacksonville when he rushed 10 times for 93 yards and a touchdown while adding two catches for 38 receiving yards. Nevertheless, it was always tough to get consistent touches, something that may not be as difficult next year if Forte doesn't return. Unfortunately for McGuire, he'll still likely be behind Powell on the depth chart, which will limit his upside.
Keeton tore his ACL in Sunday's practice and was subsequently waived/injured by the Jets shortly thereafter. After clearing waivers, he reverts to IR.
Bass only managed one tackle so far this season, playing mostly in a special team's role with the Seahawks. The team will now go ahead with four defensive ends on the active roster, with Dion Jordan (knee) currently on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.
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.
It was likely an easy decision for the Jets to bring back Martin after he finished the past season in a starting role at outside linebacker and acquitted himself well in that capacity. The 26-year-old achieved career highs across the board in 2017, finishing with 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one pass breakup. Look for him to fill at least a rotational role at linebacker to go along with his duties on special teams during the upcoming season.
This move comes almost three weeks after Sterling was waived by the Jets. He had just one reception for eight yards in three games for the Jets previously this season, and he'll likely head back into a reserve role.
Claiborne suffered a stinger early in the first quarter of Sunday's game. The issue wasn't thought to be serious and likely won't impact Claiborne much at all going forward.
Stinson made two separate stints with the Jets this season and made four game appearances in total, but only accrued one tackle on 51 defensive snaps. He appeared to sustain a neck injury in practice last week, however, and now seems set to finish out the year on IR.
Marshall spent the beginning of the season with the Jets while serving a four-game suspension for a violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. However, he wasn't added to the active roster upon his reinstatement but was instead waived and signed to the Jets' practice squad, where he finished out the season. The Jets have one of the most fluid receiver depth charts in the league and there would seem to be an opportunity for the Ohio State product to snag a spot near the bottom of the totem pole.
Had the Jets not been on a short week, there's a small chance Thomas would have been benefited from the extra time and been available for a Sunday contest. With Thomas out, the Jets will lean more heavily on the shoulders of Leonard Williams and Kony Ealy in Week 9 action.
Bishop has moved from the Jets' practice squad to their active roster frequently over the past two seasons. He could potentially see a relatively healthy workload Sunday against the Browns, due to the injuries to Josh Martin and Dylan Donahue.
Langford tried to revive his career with the Ravens this past summer but didn't survive final roster cuts and was ultimately stashed on the team's practice squad, only for him to suffer an undisclosed injury and land on injured reserve in late September. Now with the Jets, Langford could have a hard time carving out a role in a backfield that already has Bilal Powell, Matt Forte and Elijah McGuire under contract for the 2018 season.
After logging a full practice Friday, Miles appears to be on track to resume his role providing depth at safety in Week 15. Terrence Brooks would be next in line for extended time should Miles ultimately suffer any setbacks in the contest.
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 was among Pro Football Focus' worst-graded tackles in 2016, appeared in just three games for the Jets this past season. New York cleared $4.6 million in cap space by letting him walk.
Johnson was originally considered questionable to play after nursing a hip injury in practice this week. Now cleared to play, he should be ready to operate in his usual starting role.
Mauldin could return to the Jets' active roster later this season if his back injury subsides, but the earliest he could take the field for game-action would be Week 8. The linebacker missed almost all of the preseason after injuring his back during the Jets' opening week scrimmage. Mauldin has been a key cog in the Jets defense for the past two seasons, recording 33 tackles and 6.5 sacks over a span of 26 games. To replace the third-year pro, the Jets brought in veteran Bruce Carter, whom they originally waived Sunday.
Stave has spent time with the Vikings and Redskins since going undrafted out of Wisconsin in 2016 but is yet to appear in a professional game. With Josh McCown (hand) set for unrestricted free agency, Stave initially slots in as the Jets' third quarterback behind Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.
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.
McLendon enters the third and final year of the deal he signed with the Jets in free agency in March 2016 coming off the best season of his career. Though he saw his sack total drop from 3.5 the year prior down to 1.5, the nose tackle was more effective than ever at stuffing the run game. He finished with 46 tackles in 16 games, exceeding his total (42) from the 2015 and 2016 campaigns combined. The 32-year-old should fill a starting role once again during the upcoming campaign.
Winters suffered an undisclosed abdomen injury in Week 2 and played through the pain all season before missing last Sunday's game against the Chargers. The Jets signed defensive lineman Deon Simon to fill his place on the roster.
Sinkfield spent the 2016 offseason with the Vikings as a wideout, but will join the team as a cornerback this time around. The Northern Iowa product has been impressive in the Canadian Football league over the last three years, recording 102 catches for 1,537 yards and 10 touchdowns over that time frame. Sinkfield may require some time to adjust to playing cornerback, so keep an eye on his progress in order to determine where he will end up on the Vikings' defensive depth chart come roster cuts.
Williams signed with the Jets last spring after going undrafted out of Jackson State, but sustained a concussion in training camp and didn't survive final roster cuts. Now back to full health, Williams will look to earn a spot on the bottom of a largely unsettled depth chart at wide receiver.
Hansen and fellow rookie wideout ArDarius Stewart had very disappointing rookie seasons despite being selected in the third and fourth rounds of last year's draft, respectively. There will surely be higher expectations in 2018, though it's tough to see Hansen fully breaking out after his rookie struggles. The Jets could bring in some veteran wideouts this offseason, though the biggest question will be who's under center.
Skrine practiced in full Wednesday and presumably has cleared concussion protocol. His return is an opportunistic development for a Jets secondary that could be without top corner Morris Claiborne (foot).
