  Jets | Takkarist McKinley financials    Wed Jun 19, 09:38 AM

Updating a previous report, free-agent DE Takkarist McKinley (Cowboys) signed a one-year contract worth $1.125 million with the New York Jets on Tuesday, June 18.

Footballguys view: Football lore remembers the Cowboys taking Taco Charlton over T.J. Watt, but the Atlanta Falcons also took an edge rusher a few picks ahead of Watt that didn't make it to the end of his rookie deal. McKinley was selected with the 26th pick of the 2017 draft - one pick ahead of Tre'Davious White - and they moved up five spots to do it. McKinley has been with the Raiders, Browns, Titans, Rams, and Cowboys since. He made the Jets after a tryout and will be reunited with Jets defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich, who was the Falcons linebackers coach when they selected him in 2017.

  Jets | Two linemen on track for camp    Wed Jun 12, 01:26 PM

New York Jets OT Morgan Moses (pectoral) and OG Alijah Vera-Tucker (Achilles) are expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Robert Saleh.

Footballguys view: Some of the names have changed, but we are still watching the Jets offensive line durability closely going into this season. Moses, Vera-Tucker, and Tyron Smith are the three best starters on the team. Two are coming back from serious injuries and Smith has only played in 30 games over the last four seasons. We'll check back in to see if Moses and Vera-Tucker are ready for camp as expected. If not, added pessimism about the Jets offense could be warranted.

  NYJ | Breece Hall Confident He'll Be Full Speed For Training Camp    Tue Jun 11, 05:41 PM

Breece Hall isn't on the field with the other Jets who reported for work. Head coach Robert Saleh said that Hall is not practicing because of a lower-body issue that the running back downplayed during a press conference. "It's not really a concern to be honest," Hall said, via SNY. "I'm just focused on continuing to get better and just still keep building my body up for the season. I could practice right now, I feel great, but the coaches are real cautious with me and I appreciate them for that."

Footballguys view: Hall sounded confident that he'll be at full speed for training camp and said he's looking forward to the team's opener on Monday night against the 49ers. He said 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey "sets the standard" for NFL backs and wants to see how he measures up. "It's exciting just to see where I stand and really let everybody see my full talent now that I'm healthy," Hall said. Hall currently holds the RB2 spot (behind only McCaffrey) on the Footballguys 2024 Draft Rankings. He's a legitimate contender to finish as RB1 this year.

  Jets | More information on Aaron Rodgers' absence    Tue Jun 11, 01:32 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Aaron Rodgers (personal) is not expected to participate in mandatory minicamp this week. While the absence is considered unexcused and Rodgers will be subject to fines due to not being present, the absence is one that Rodgers stated was 'important to him' and head coach Robert Saleh knew about 'a while ago'.

Footballguys view: Rodgers recently said he "respects" anyone's opinion that he is a distraction to the Jets, but he added: "Once the season starts, it's all about football." So we'll see about that. This absence, however, remains noteworthy because the Jets knew it was coming and didn't excuse it. Not defusing the issue when they easily could have says something. Meanwhile, backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor will now get an opportunity to receive more first-team reps with Rodgers out. The Jets also have rookies Jordan Travis and Andrew Peasley on the roster.

  Jets | Aaron Rodgers Absent From Mandatory Minicamp    Tue Jun 11, 11:27 AM

New York Jets QB Aaron Rodgers is absent from mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 11. The absence is unexcused.

Footballguys view: Head coach Robert Saleh stressed that while it's an unexcused absence, the team knew the quarterback wouldn't attend minicamp due to a previous engagement. Rodgers had been a participant in the Jets' voluntary workouts. "Aaron and I spoke before OTAs started," Saleh said Tuesday. "He's been very good in communication. He's been here the entire time. It's inexcused, but he had an event that was very important to him, which he communicated." As NFL.com suggested, veteran players missing non-contact practices in June isn't the end of the world -- especially in Rodgers' case since he's been around all spring -- but it's notable. The team could have easily made this an excused absence, so the event wasn't as important to them as it was to Rodgers.

  Jets | Tyler Conklin expects improved play    Sun Jun 9, 05:06 PM

New York Jets TE Tyler Conklin said he expects a big step in his play this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Conklin's 621 yards in 2023 ranked second on the team, and his 61 receptions ranked third while catching passes from four quarterbacks last season. According to Pro Football Focus, Conklin ranked No. 2 in the NFL with a 66.7 percent contested-catch rate among TEs who took a minimum of 400 passing snaps. His 12 contested catches also ranked second. More importantly, Conklin had the second-most targets on the team last year. If he maintains a similar role with Aaron Rodgers as his QB all season, you could wind up with a reaonably-priced TE2 delivering low-end TE1 totals.

  Jets | Xavier Gipson expected to be primary slot    Wed Jun 5, 01:24 PM

New York Jets WR Xavier Gipson is projected to begin the season as the primary option in the slot over third-round rookie Malachi Corley, according to SNY's Connor Hughes.

Footballguys view: Gipson could begin the season ahead of Corley, but the rookie could surpass him quickly (and even before the start of the season). Corley is a freak athlete who can be a nightmare after the catch. Gipson didn't flash much as a rookie in 2023 with 21 grabs for 229 yards. We'll see this competition shake out in training camp, and we'll be noting who shows more chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers.

  Jets | Braelon Allen standing out early    Wed Jun 5, 02:56 AM

New York Jets RB Braelon Allen's hands are getting him noticed early in camp, as he has been a reliable option out of the backfield all summer, according to SNY's Connor Hughes.

Footballguys view: Allen is impressive as a runner because he's huge and swift. You can't see him run over defenders in practice, but that's coming in the preseason (and the regular season). It's good to hear that he's impressive as a receiver too. We love Allen in dynasty formats, but this year he's set for backup duty behind Breece Hall.

  Jets | Aaron Rodgers trying to join rare group    Sun Jun 2, 10:24 PM

New York Jets QB Aaron Rodgers has thrown at least 25 touchdowns in each of the 13 seasons that he has played at least 10 games, but only four quarterbacks in NFL history have thrown 25 or more touchdowns in a season after failing to complete a pass in the previous season.

Footballguys view: Given his history and a great supporting cast headlined by Garrett Wilson, Rodgers is well-positioned to get back on track this year. He's QB17 on the Footballguys 2024 Draft Rankings and currently going as QB20 in Underdog best-ball drafts. While Rodgers coming off a torn Achilles tendon at 40 isn't ideal, the veteran has reportedly worked without issue in recent OTAs. He's a great value if you're waiting to land a solid QB2 for your teams.

New York Jets WR Malachi Corley (undisclosed) left the voluntary workout early with a trainer Wednesday, May 29, because of an undisclosed injury.

It sounds like Corley avoided a serious injury, but we'll be keeping tabs on this and Mike Williams recovery from ACL surgery to inform our projections of the Jets passing game.

  Jets | Breece Hall works on side    Thu May 30, 01:16 PM

New York Jets RB Breece Hall (undisclosed) worked in the rehab area during the voluntary workout Wednesday, May 29, because of an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: There's probably nothing to worry about here, but we'll be monitoring just in case. Hall is going in the middle of the first round in part because he'll be another year removed from ACL surgery, so it's important for us to find out if this has anything to do with that if whatever this is persists into the summer.

  Jets | Pair of WRs set to battle for slot duties    Tue May 28, 01:27 AM

New York Jets WRs Malachi Corley and Xavier Gipson are expected to compete for the slot role in New York's offense, a position the team brought veteran WR Randall Cobb in to play in 2023. Corley, a second-round pick in this year's draft, appears to have the upper hand, but the coaching staff is high on Gipson, who got to work with QB Aaron Rodgers in camp last year.

Footballguys view: According to the report, the Jets coaching staff is high on Gipson and Corley, a second-round rookie whom the Jets traded up for. Corley seems favored, but Gipson's had more time to earn Aaron Rodgers' trust. We have spoken to Jets beat writers who didn't believe Gipson, the undersized speed receiver who caught only 55 percent of his targets and experienced fumbling issues as a rookie, was the answer before the draft. Corley's selection lends credence to that belief. This interests Dynasty manager more than redrafters, but we'll continue watching for more.

  Jets | Malachi Corley has Aaron Rodgers' attention    Sun May 26, 03:14 PM

New York Jets WR Malachi Corley was the favorite wide receiver of QB Aaron Rodgers in the 2024 NFL draft, according to sources Friday, May 26.

Footballguys view: Just call Corley the "YAC King" for his ability to make big plays regularly after the catch. He's built like a running back (215 pounds) and is tough to bring down with the ball in his hands due to his quickness and speed. Corley ran a limited route tree in college at Western Kentucky, but he can run intermediate routes and turn short passes into long gains. The 2024 third-round pick could be a fine slot receiver with Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams working on the outside.

  Jets | Aaron Rodgers confident in OC    Sat May 25, 03:52 AM

New York Jets QB Aaron Rodgers said he has confidence in offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and believes the offense will be successful this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Rodgers is not going to throw his buddy Hackett under the bus. The Broncos hired Hackett as a head coach a couple of years ago just to try and lure Rodgers to them. Hackett is under pressure after failing to craft a quality offense without Rodgers under center. So long as Rodgers is healthy, he's going to continue making Hackett look good (ish).

  Jets | Morgan Moses not cleared yet    Thu May 23, 01:47 PM

New York Jets OT Morgan Moses (pectoral) has not been cleared to take part in workouts at this time because he is recovering from offseason surgery.

Footballguys view: Stop us if you've heard this one before - the Jets offensive tackles might have trouble staying healthy this year. Former Cowboy Tyron Smith will be manning the left tackle spot with Moses slated to play right tackle after the Jets acquired him from the Ravens for a swap of fourth round picks and a sixth round pick. The Jets also took Penn State tackle Olu Fashanu with the #10 pick, so he could save the day if one or both of the starters go down.

  Jets | Mike Williams not cleared for OTAs    Tue May 21, 11:54 AM

Footballguys view: Upon signing with New York in March, Williams, who tore his ACL in Week 3 last season, said he was "on schedule" and that expected to be ready for the start of the season. He was noncommittal on whether he'd be ready for training camp in late July. The Jets added some insurance at the position by selecting Malachi Corley in the third round of April's draft.

  Jets | Aaron Rodgers Gets Week 1 Return Against 49ers In San Francisco On MNF    Tue May 14, 04:51 PM

Aaron Rodgers' comeback season will open in prime time, as the New York Jets will travel to the San Francisco 49ers to face the defending NFC champions on Sept. 9 on ESPN's "Monday Night Football," it was announced Tuesday morning. It was also announced Tuesday that the Buffalo Bills will play at the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night, Sept. 12, to open Week 2. The game will air on Amazon Prime.

Footballguys view: For fantasy managers, the game in San Francisco will be our first look at Rodgers in a game that matters in nearly a year. The veteran signal caller's Jets debut last Sept. 11 turned into a season-altering disaster for the Jets, as the four-time MVP tore his left Achilles on the fourth snap and missed the remainder of the season. The Jets are coming off a 7-10 season marred by quarterback instability. Rodgers has a 6-3 career mark against the 49ers. This is a homecoming of sorts for Rodgers, who grew up in California and attended UC Berkeley. In 2005, Rodgers had thought there was a chance he'd be drafted first overall by the 49ers, but they opted for Alex Smith. The Niners defense will pose a tough test in his first game back, but a strong supporting cast led by Breece Hall and Garrett Wilson works in Rodgers' favor.
