  • Jets Will Listen On Sam Darnold

    New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas said that the team is open to listening to trade offers for quarterback Sam Darnold this offseason. "I will answer the call if it's made," Douglas said Wednesday. The Jets could opt to stick with Darnold, draft a replacement at No. 2 overall or pursue Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson if he becomes available. Douglas said he's in no rush to make a decision and downplayed Watson as an option. Since the end of the 2020 season, the Jets have been non-committal on Darnold, who has yet to take the next step. The Jets will evaluate the top QBs in the draft before making a final decision on Darnold. The 23-year-old hasn't had a ton of help around him, but it sounds like the Jets may be moving on soon. Stay tuned.

  • Marcus Maye A Franchise-Tag Candidate

    New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas said he's had "productive" talks with agent Erik Burkhardt on impending free-agent safety Marcus Maye, who is a franchise-tag candidate. The soon-to-be 28-year-old had two sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles while racking up a career-high 88 tackles (52 solo) for the Jets in 2020. Since being selected by the Jets in the second round out of the University of Florida in 2017, Maye has 266 tackles (189 solo), six interceptions, 22 passes defensed, four forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and 2.5 sacks in 54 games, all of which he has started. New defensive-minded head coach Robert Saleh obviously wants to keep Maye in the fold at free safety for New York's secondary.

  • Jets Release Henry Anderson

    The New York Jets released defensive lineman Henry Anderson on Tuesday. Anderson was due $8.2 million in 2021, and the Jets saved nearly that same amount by cutting him. Anderson, 29, started 24 games for Gang Green in the last three seasons. He carried a $9.5 million salary cap charge, with the remaining $1.3 million as a "dead" charge. New York now has more than $75 million in salary cap space as they head into free agency. Anderson played more snaps (942) than every Jets lineman except Quinnen Williams in 2019 and 2020. Traded over from the Colts during the 2018 draft, Anderson had a career-high seven sacks in the final year of his rookie contract. Since a three-year, $25.2 million deal, he produced just 1.5 sacks in the last 29 games. Anderson played in all 16 games last year, finishing with 42 total tackles.

  • Quinnen Williams Doesn't Want To Be Traded

    New York Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams said he'd "be disappointed" if the team traded him this offseason to the Houston Texans in a package to acquire quarterback Deshaun Watson. The third overall pick of the 2019 draft has been the subject of trade rumors for months. "I really want to be a Jet for life. I like New York, and I want to play in New York," Williams said. The 23-year-old improved in 2020 with seven sacks, 10 tackles for loss, 14 QB hits and two forced fumbles after disappointing in his rookie season. Williams is hoping to continue improving under defensive-minded head coach Robert Saleh. As of right now, the Texans front office remains steadfast in not dealing Watson, but that could change in the coming weeks.

  • Jets Not Making A Decision On Sam Darnold Yet

    The New York Jets plan to complete their evaluations of the top quarterbacks, including Pro Days and interviews, in the NFL draft before making any final decisions on quarterback Sam Darnold, according to sources. The Jets have received real trade interest in Darnold, but they want to get the full QB picture first. New York's offensive line was better in 2020, but the 23-year-old was still wildly mediocre and missed four games due to injury. He threw for 2,208 yards on 364 attempts (59.6 completion percentage) with just nine touchdown passes and 11 interceptions. If Darnold is to remain the team's starter under center, Gang Green needs to get him better weapons to work with if he's to see any real improvement. But at this point after three years of game tape, Darnold is an unattractive low-end QB2 in need of a change of scenery.
