New York Jets – Five 2017 Breakout Players

Ryan Marcone looks at five potential break out players for the New York Jets in 2017…

The New York Jets are looking at a major rebuild in 2017, with a roster that showed itself to have plenty of holes in the 2016 season. They may opt to address some of those needs through free agency and the NFL Draft, but the ideal situation for any rebuilding team is to find young, inexpensive players already on the roster who can step up when given a more substantial role. Here are my picks for five New York Jets who can do just that in 2017…

New York Jets Season Review: How Did We Get Here?

David Aitken on how the New York Jets got to their current state, as arguably the worst team in the NFL…

How do you reflect on what we just went through? The Jets were bad, arguably worse than record indicated, and the lack of progress feels depressing. A typical “grades and awards” type review isn’t necessary to tell anyone this. There’s no joy in naming a team MVP for the season when the best candidate literally admits that he had no choice but to play for himself. And peering into the crystal ball, there’s no guarantee any of this is going to get any better any time soon.

New York Jets – How Not to Spend Money

Michael McLaughlin on the New York Jets best and worst deals currently compromising their salary cap

The New York Jets have a spending problem. More specifically, the team has struggled to get value out of the investments it has made in players. While the organization used its last eight first round draft picks on defensive players, the cap hits for the offense and defense in 2016 are nearly identical. The numbers are a little over $67 and $68 million respectively.

As is expected with a 4-9 team, however, the roster is not filled with players outplaying their contracts. Below, I look at some individual players and position groups (this is not an exhaustive list) to evaluate the quality of personnel decisions made. All contract numbers are taken from overthecap.com, and the NFL salary cap for 2016 is 155,270,000. The 2017 cap is not yet known.
