Position Listing
Xavier Cooper
News
Cooper re-signed with the Jets on Monday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

The deal aims to strengthen the depth up front and provide a security blanket for an already strong defensive group. Although Cooper likely won't start, the fourth-year veteran has a chance to help out in situational schemes.

Darryl Roberts
News
Roberts suffered a hamstring injury Sunday against the Jaguars and is doubtful to return, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Terrelle Pryor
News
Pryor suffered another ankle injury during the offseason and is not participating in OTAs, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Pyror was placed on injured reserve last season in November after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his ankle, but even with his poor season in Washington, the wideout still got another one-year deal with the Jets this offseason. Now, it's unclear whether this is a new injury or a setback for Pryor, but chances are the team will be extra cautious with him this early on in the offseason. Pryor is part of a fairly crowded wide receiving corps in New York, and if this ankle injury impacts his availability for training camp in July, he could find himself lower on the depth chart to start the season.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Dimitri Flowers
No Updates
Cairo Santos
News
Santos faces competition for the Jets' kicking job after the team claimed Nick Rose off waivers from the Chargers on Monday, NJ.com reports.

Santos is now presumably past the offseason procedure he underwent to repair a groin muscle injury, so he'll now focus on fending off the challenge that Rose is in line to present. Whichever kicker claims the job will be working behind an offense that averaged just 18.6 points per game last season. Newcomers like wideout Terrelle Pryor and running back Isaiah Crowell could help spur improvements on that front in 2018, but the team's attack is still slated to be directed by 38-year-old Josh McCown, while the Jets groom their soon-to-be drafted quarterback of the future.

Bruce Carter
News
Carter (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

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.

Lucky Whitehead
News
Whitehead was promoted to the Jets' 53-man roster on Saturday.

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.

Kevin Pierre-Louis
News
Pierre-Louis is set to sign a two-year contract with the Jets on Monday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Pierre-Louis was traded to the Chiefs last July and set a career high with 41 tackles (31 solo) in 14 games last season. The 26-year-old will likely serve as a rotational inside linebacker and special teams contributor for the Jets in 2018.

Charles D. Johnson
News
Johnson (knee) signed with the Jets on Monday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

A 2013 seventh-round pick, Johnson made a bit of a splash while playing with Teddy Bridgewater for the 2014 Vikings, averaging 71 receiving yards over a five-week stretch late in the season. He's managed only 479 yards in his other 34 career games, most recently spending 2017 on injured reserve with the Panthers while recovering from a knee injury. Despite reuniting with his former quarterback, Johnson will be a long shot to make the final roster on a Jets team with ample competition at wide receiver.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Rashard Robinson
News
Robinson was arrested in December following a traffic stop in Morris County, N.J., Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

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.

Juston Burris
News
Burris has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a concussion, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

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.

Xavier Coleman
News
Coleman (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kevin Minter
News
Minter signed a contract with the Jets on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Minter disappointed on a one-year deal with the Bengals in 2017, accruing just 32 tackles in nine games after racking up 175 tackles in 32 games during his previous two seasons with the Cardinals. Injuries were largely to blame, as Minter dislocated his elbow in October before sustaining a season-ending hamstring injury in Week 14. He'll look to turn his career around with a Jets team that already has 2016 first-rounder Darron Lee and offseason acquisition Avery Williamson at inside linebacker.

Trenton Cannon
No Updates
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 (hand) intends to help with Sam Darnold's development while also competing against the rookie for the starting job, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports.

McCown figures to take the first snap with the starting offense when training camp begins, but Darnold and Teddy Bridgewater also figure to get their fair share of opportunities. McCown and Bridgewater probably knew what they were signing up for, as the Jets never bothered to hide their intention of drafting a quarterback in the first round. McCown likely has made a full recovery from the broken left hand that brought his 2017 campaign to an early end.

Injury
Hand - Questionable for the start of training camp
Charone Peake
News
Peake (ankle) finished 2017 with one catch for three yards in three games.

Peake initially was considered a candidate to return from injured reserve after he hurt his ankle in September, but he never made it back and probably wouldn't have gotten much playing time even if he had. The 2016 seventh-round pick likely will need to battle for a roster spot in training camp, assuming he recovers from last year's ankle injury.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ben Braden
No Updates
Avery Williamson
News
Williamson signed a three-year, $22.5 million deal with the Jets on Friday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

Williamson fills the Jets' middle linebacker void that was created when they let Demario Davis walk in free agency. The four-year pro has two seasons with over 100 tackles, but Williamson saw just 41 defensive snaps per game in 2017 and fell short with only 92 tackles. With a hefty pay day on deck and little competition surrounding him, expect Williamson to be a Week 1 starter.

Antonio Garcia
News
Garcia (illness) was claimed off waivers by the Jets, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Garcia was waived by the Patriots over the weekend after missing the entire 2017 season with blood clots in his lungs. The 2017 third-rounder will now get a chance to prove himself on another AFC East team.

Injury
Illness - Questionable for the start of training camp
Tre McBride
News
The Jets signed McBride (undisclosed) to a reserve/future contract Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

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.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Trumaine Johnson
News
The Jets are in line to sign Johnson, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The best cornerback on the market this offseason, Johnson has a seven-interception campaign (2015) and three years with 60-plus tackles (2013, 2015, 2017) on his resume. Expect the 28-year-old to slot in opposite Buster Skrine this season and beyond as he looks to uphold a contract with an average annual value of $15 million per year, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Christian Hackenberg
News
Hackenberg was traded to the Raiders on Tuesday in exchange for a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick.

Hackenberg was the odd man out during the start of OTAs on Tuesday, as he saw less reps than each of the other three Jets quarterbacks, and chances are the former Penn State standout was going to be released anyway this offseason after New York acquired Teddy Bridgewater and drafted Sam Darnold with the third overall pick. Hackenberg has been limited to just preseason action in each of the past two seasons, and chances are he'll end up being released by the Raiders, who already had three quarterbacks on their roster, before the start of this regular season.

Kacy Rodgers
No Updates
Lac Edwards
No Updates
Obum Gwacham
News
Gwacham signed a contract Wednesday with the Jets, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.

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.

Darron Lee
News
Lee has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a coach's decision, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Lee's inactive designation comes as a surprise this week, and Jets coach Todd Bowles is expected to address the decision following the conclusion of the game. In the meantime, Julian Stanford and Bruce Carter figure to see additional reps at inside linebacker next to usual starter Demario Davis.

Quinton Patton
News
Patton (foot) was released from the Jets' injured reserve with an injury settlement, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

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.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Sam Darnold
No Updates
Kelvin Beachum
News
Beachum is expected to start at left tackle once again in 2017, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports.

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.

Jordan Leggett
News
Leggett (knee) figures to compete with rookie Chris Herndon for the Jets' starting tight end job, NJ.com reports.

Eric Tomlinson, Neal Sterling, Clive Walford and Bucky Hodges are also in the mix, but at this stage it looks like Leggett -- now presumably past the knee injury that derailed his rookie season -- and Herndon have the best chance to step into the role created by the free-agent departure of Austin Seferian-Jenkins. To the victor goes No. 1 depth chart slotting, but fantasy relevance could prove elusive in the context of the Jets offense.

Brandon Copeland
News
Copeland signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday.

Copeland entered free agency as a restricted free agent but became unrestricted when the Lions declined to tender him a contract. The 26-year-old missed the entire 2017 season with a torn pectoral and is likely to serve as a reserve linebacker for the Jets in 2018.

Jonotthan Harrison
News
Harrison re-signed Wednesday with the Jets on a one-year deal, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Harrison was a depth lineman for the Jets in 2017, but was able to get plenty of offensive reps over the final two weeks of the season. His return gives the Jets a solid backup offensive tackle who also can also contribute on special teams.

Chris Herndon
Injury
Knee - MCL - Questionable for the start of training camp
No Updates
Jermaine Kearse
News
Kearse's non-guaranteed $5 million base salary could put his spot on the Jets' roster in jeopardy, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Traded from the Seahawks to the Jets last preseason, Kearse posted career highs across the board in 2017 with 65 catches for 810 yards and five touchdowns on 103 targets, highlighted by back-to-back 100-yard outings in Josh McCown's final two healthy games of the year. The Jets' recent signing of Terrelle Pryor (ankle) may partially have been motivated by concern regarding Kearse's contract and/or Robby Anderson's legal issues. While a decision doesn't seem imminent, the team eventually could move on from Kearse if Anderson avoids a lengthy suspension and both Pryor and Quincy Enunwa (neck) get healthy. The Jets may also be banking on some degree of improvement from 2017 draft picks ArDarius Stewart (third round) and Chad Hansen (fourth round), a duo that combined for only 15 catches last season.

Robby Anderson
News
Anderson is no longer facing a felony charge from his arrest in May 2017, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Arrested twice within the past 13 months, Anderson has now seen felony charges dropped in both cases, but he's still on the hook for a few misdemeanors, which eventually could warrant an NFL suspension. He was on track for a 1,000-yard campaign last year before Josh McCown suffered a broken hand Week 14, leaving Bryce Petty under center for the final three weeks of the season. The Jets figure to start McCown or No. 3 overall draft pick Sam Darnold in Week 1, but there is a bit more competition for targets this time around, as Quincy Enunwa (neck) and offseason addition Terrelle Pryor (ankle) both seem to be on track for training camp. Jermaine Kearse and 2017 draft picks ArDarius Stewart (Round 3) and Chad Hansen (Round 4) also figure to be in the mix for playing time at wide receiver.

Travis Swanson
News
Swanson signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Swanson, a former third-round selection of the Lions, spent his first four seasons in Detroit, starting 42 of 53 games during the stint. However, he missed the final six games of last season due to a concussion -- an injury the center now disputes, claiming he instead had a bad reaction to the medicine he received for the injury. The Jets also brought in former Redskins center Spencer Long (quadriceps), who figures to start the season atop the depth chart. However, Long is returning from a torn quadriceps injury last season, which could give Swanson an opportunity to take over starting duties should Long be sidelined heading into training camp.

Nathan Shepherd
No Updates
Jamal Adams
News
Adams finished his rookie season with 83 tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and six deflected passes.

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.

Deon Simon
News
Simon was signed to the active roster Wednesday, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

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.

Foley Fatukasi
No Updates
ArDarius Stewart
News
Stewart caught six of 13 targets for 82 yards during the 2017 season.

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.

Brandon Shell
News
Shell (concussion) was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Patriots.

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.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Quincy Enunwa
News
Enunwa (neck) was seen doing individual drills at the start of OTAs on Tuesday, Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports.

As expected, Enunwa is limited to start OTAs, and given that he is without a helmet, the wideout is likely still dealing with some lingering neck issues after suffering a bulging disk last season. However, the fact that Enunwa is on the field Tuesday is still an encouraging sign for his recovery, and the expectation is still that he will be a full participant in training camp in July, where he will look to re-establish himself as one of the team's top threats in the passing game.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Thomas Hennessy
News
Hennessy (concussion) is absent from the Jets' final injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Saints.

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.

Leonard Williams
News
The Jets are expected to exercise Williams' fifth-year team option before the May 3 deadline, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Williams, now entering his fourth season, hasn't produced to the degree some expected of the 2015 first-round pick. However, Williams' meager sack total -- he has only 12 in 48 career games -- isn't entirely reflective of his pass-rushing impact; Williams has recorded 65 quarterback hits to date, including 25 in 2017, when he played through a preseason wrist injury. The Jets' decision to pick up his team option for 2019 is thus not surprising, especially since Williams' salary for that fifth year won't become guaranteed until the start of the new league year next spring.

Jeremy Clark
News
Clark (knee) was activated from the reserve/Non-Football Injury list and added to the Jets' 53-man roster Friday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

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.

Mike Pennel
News
Pennel signed a three-year deal with the Jets on Friday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Pennel was used in a depth role during the 2017 season, and he'll likely maintain the same role for the time being. Even with limited reps, though, Pennel posted 35 tackles (20 solo) and didn't miss a game last season.

Dylan Donahue
News
Donahue's arrest in Weehawken, N.J. last month was his second related to alcohol and driving in the last year, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

On the morning of Feb. 26, Donahue allegedly drove the wrong way in the Lincoln Tunnel and induced a crash with a bus. He subsequently was charged with DWI and reckless driving, the former of which could subject him to discipline under the NFL's substance abuse policy. Monday's news included another accusation in the same realm. Last May 9, or 10 days after he was selected in the fifth round of the draft, Donahue's SUV was discovered on its roof with the linebacker behind the wheel in Billings, Mont. For that infraction, he was charged with misdemeanor DUI. Both cases will have to play out before the league makes a judgement, but a suspension is likely with two transgressions on his record.

Injury
Elbow - Questionable for the start of training camp
Terrence Brooks
News
Brooks agreed Wednesday with the Jets on a two-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Brooks arrived in the Big Apple last August via trade from Philadelphia, finishing his first season with the Jets with 13 tackles in 15 games. With a new two-year deal in place, Brooks will likely reprise his role as a depth cornerback and special-teams contributor during the upcoming campaign.

Neville Hewitt
News
Hewitt (shoulder) was waived by Miami on Saturday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

This move was somewhat of a surprise as the Dolphins are woefully thin at linebacker after Kiko Alonso and Lawrence Timmons. Perhaps the shoulder injury is more bothersome than they have let on or perhaps they will sign him at the conclusion of Week 1 when they won't have to guarantee his salary for the entire season.

Eric Tomlinson
News
Tomlinson caught eight of 11 targets for 121 yards and one touchdown during the 2017 season.

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.

Chris Gragg
News
Gragg (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday, The Associated Press reports.

Gragg broke his ankle in Thursday's preseason finale. He's likely to remain on IR for the duration of the season.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Marcus Maye
News
Maye (ankle) didn't participate in OTAs on Tuesday, Calvin Watkins of Newsday.com reports.

The 2017 second-round pick made 79 tackels (57 solo) and two picks in his rookie season, and he will be paired up with SS Jamal Adams again in 2018. Maye is still on pace to participate in training camp and work a full snap count in his sophomore campaign.

Bilal Powell
News
Powell could lose out on a starting role in 2018 after the Jets signed Isaiah Crowell to a three-year contract Wednesday, Calvin Watkins of Newsday reports.

Powell averaged 4.3 yards and scored five times on 178 carries last season, but his involvement in the passing game took a massive downturn from 105 catches between 2015 and 2016 to only 23 in 2017. With Crowell likely ticketed for early down work, it's fair to wonder if Powell might eventually be released, a move that would save the Jets $4 million while incurring an $883,334 dead cap charge, per OverTheCap.com. The Jets then would use Elijah McGuire or a free agent/draft pick as their passing-down complement to Crowell.

Elijah McGuire
News
McGuire finished the 2017 season with 88 carries for 315 yards and one touchdown as well as 17 receptions on 26 targets for 177 receiving yards and another score.

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.

David Bass
News
Bass re-signed with the Jets on Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Bass likely will be of most service via special teams, but don't be surprised if the 27-year-old is used in several defensive packages in 2018. Last season, Bass registered a career-high 3.5 sacks in 13 games. The arrivals of Avery Williamson, Kevin Minter and Kevin Pierre-Louis could stymie Bass' ability to regenerate that production, but the new contract suggests the Jets still see Bass as a good fit.

Isaiah Crowell
News
Crowell agreed to a three-year, $12 million contract with the Jets on Wednesday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

Crowell is fully guaranteed $4 million, which seems reasonable for the physical back, who will help fill the void created by the retirement of Matt Forte. With the Jets, Crowell is in line to work in some form of a timeshare with Bilal Powell and second-year back Elijah McGuire.

Bucky Hodges
News
Hodges signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Hodges, a sixth-round selection in the 2017 Draft, was waived-injured by the Vikings back in September and then spent six weeks on the Panthers' practice squad. He'll now compete with Neal Sterling and Jordan Leggett for a reserve tight end role this season.

Doug Middleton
No Updates
Josh Martin
News
The Jets exercised Martin's $1.8 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

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.

Neal Sterling
News
Sterling inked his restricted free-agent tender with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Sterling will have to put on a strong showing if he hopes to hang around past the preseason. Despite the somewhat long odds to survive final roster cuts, the Jets' relative inexperience and depth at tight end bodes well for Sterling's chances.

Henry Anderson
News
Anderson was traded to the Jets on Saturday, Stephen Holder of indystar.com reports.

The Colts opted to part ways with Anderson in exchange for a seventh round draft pick. Anderson figures to provide added depth at the defensive end position for New York. The Jets have said goodbye to the likes of Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Kony Ealy within the calendar year. While Anderson isn't expected to contribute at an All-Pro level, the Jets hope he'll be able to pick up some of the slack left behind from key departures.

Morris Claiborne
News
Claiborne is probable to return to Sunday's game against New England after suffering a stinger, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Claiborne suffered the injury early on in Sunday's game after taking a blow to the neck and shoulder area. He likely won't take long to return from the issue.

Ed Stinson
News
Stinson (neck) reverted to injured reserve Monday, according to the league's official transaction log.

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.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Lawrence Thomas
News
Thomas (concussion) did not practice Monday and has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Buffalo, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

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.

Freddie Bishop
News
The Jets promoted Bishop to their 53-man roster Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

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.

Rontez Miles
News
Miles signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Miles has served primarily as a special teamer during his tenure in New York. In all likelihood, Miles should reassume his role as leader of that units in 2018. With safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye leading the back end of the secondary, Miles would only see time there if an injury or two were to present itself.

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.

Ben Ijalana
News
Ijalana signed a one-year contract with the Jets on Friday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

The Jets allowed Ijalana to test the open market but it's now apparent he'll be brought back for another season. Capable of playing both left and right tackle, it's possible he could open the 2018 campaign in a starting role.

Teddy Bridgewater
News
Bridgewater (knee) participated in team drills during OTAs on Tuesday, Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports.

Bridgewater was the second quarterback to take snaps during team drills after Josh McCown, with rookie Sam Darnold bringing up the rear, but that order is likely insignificant this early in the offseason. Regardless, it's another encouraging sign for the quarterback in his recovery that he is continuing to be a participant in the Jets' offseason programs, especially considering that reports surfaced in March that Bridgewater may be held out of the majority of offseason training. Those concerns seem to have been put to bed here. Bridgewater said his surgically repaired left knee "feels great" after Tuesday's drills. As Bridgewater's health improves, he'll continue battling for positioning on New York's quarterback depth chart with McCown and Darnold.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Taylor Bertolet
News
Bertolet signed with the Jets on Monday.

Bertolet was recently waived by the Broncos a week ago after spending just over a month with the franchise. The Jets are expected to move forward with Cairo Santos as their No. 1 kicker, but Bertolet will serve as competition along with Nick Rose this offseason.

Thomas Rawls
News
Rawls signed with the Jets on Friday.

Rawls burst onto the scene as an undrafted rookie in 2015, taking 147 carries for 830 yards (5.6 average) and four touchdowns in 13 games for the Seahawks. He suffered a major ankle injury late in the year and hasn't looked the same ever since, managing just 506 yards and three scores on 167 carries (3.0 YPC) the past two seasons. Rawls likely will need to compete for a roster spot behind Isaiah Crowell and BIlal Powell in New York.

James Carpenter

Spencer Long
News
Long (quadriceps) agreed to terms Wednesday on a contract with the Jets, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Long will presumably take over as the Jets' new starting center after the team struggled to find effective contributors at that position in 2017. The 27-year-old should help spark a ground game that mostly sputtered a season ago.

Injury
Quadriceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
Frankie Luvu

Lorenzo Mauldin
News
Mauldin (back) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports.

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.

Injury
Back - Questionable for the start of training camp
Clive Walford
News
Darryl Slater of NJ.com views Walford as a candidate to be omitted from the Jets' final 53-man roster this fall.

Plenty can happen between now and cut-downs, but Walford isn't guaranteed anything with the Jets despite the void at tight end created by the departure of Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Jordan Leggett (knee) and Chris Herndon (knee) are currently the co-favorites to to land the starting job.

Andre Roberts
News
Roberts is signing with the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Jets just added Terrelle Pryor (ankle) to a wideout group that includes Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Quincy Enunwa (neck) and 2017 draft picks ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen. While there aren't any sure things among the bunch, Roberts nonetheless figures to mostly focus on special teams, considering he had 15 receptions, 79 kickoff returns and 47 punt returns in 32 games for the Lions and Falcons the past two years. The 30-year-old returned two punts for scores in 2016, but he averaged only 22.6 yards on 38 kick returns and 7.4 yards on 27 punt returns last season, without taking any to the house. JoJo Natson was the Jets' primary return man in 2017, posting dismal averages of 20.3 yards on 16 kickoffs and 2.4 yards on 16 punts.

Devin Smith
News
Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

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.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Steve McLendon
News
The Jets picked up McLendon's $3.13 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

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.

Darius James

Brian Winters
News
Winters says he has fully healed from the abdominal injury that derailed his 2017 season, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports.

Winters' months of "horrendous" pain appear to be in the rearview mirror following his return to team activities. The veteran guard is expected to be an anchor on New York's offensive line moving forward.

Dakoda Shepley

Terrell Sinkfield
News
Sinkfield signed with the Vikings on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

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.

Chad Hansen
News
Hansen caught nine of 17 targets for 94 yards during the 2017 season.

Hansen and fellow rookie wideout ArDarius Stewart had 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.

Buster Skrine
News
Skrine (concussion) will play Thursday against the Bills.

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).
