Free Agency Reset: What is left for the Jets?

Now that the second wave of free agency has well and truly slowed to a crawl, it's a good time to review where the Jets stand.

UFAs re-signed:

  • Solomon Thomas
  • Greg Zuerlein
  • Will Parks
  • Quincy Williams
  • Adam Pankey
  • Nick Bawden
  • Ty Johnson

New players acquired:

  • Chuck Clark (trade)
  • Allen Lazard
  • Wes Schweitzer
  • Trystan Colon
  • Mecole Hardman
  • Thomas Morstead

Potential acquisitions on the horizon:

  • Aaron Rodgers (trade)
  • Randall Cobb
  • Odell Beckham Jr.
  • Ben Jones
  • Marcedes Lewis

Known targets missed out on:

  • Fletcher Cox
  • Calais Campbell
  • Jake Brendel

Ex-Jets acquired by other teams:

  • Nathan Shepherd (Saints)
  • Sheldon Rankins (Texans)
  • Jeff Smith (Giants)
  • Elijah Moore (Browns - via trade)
  • Braxton Berrios (Dolphins)
  • Dan Feeney (Dolphins)
  • Mike White (Dolphins)
  • Nate Herbig (Steelers)
  • James Robinson (Patriots)

Jets UFAs still yet to be signed:

  • George Fant
  • Connor McGovern
  • Joe Flacco
  • Lamarcus Joyner
  • Vinny Curry
  • Mike Remmers
  • Kwon Alexander
  • Cedric Ogbuehi
  • Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.

Current 2024 compensatory picks projection: Three picks (two seventh rounders and a sixth rounder).

Remaining needs:

  • Defensive tackle
  • Free safety
  • Off-ball linebacker
  • Offensive line depth

Draft picks held:

  • Round 1, Pick 13
  • Round 2, Pick 42 (From CLV)
  • Round 2, Pick 43
  • Round 4, Pick 112
  • Round 5, Pick 143
  • Round 6, Pick 207 (From SF via HOU)

Notes on compensatory picks:

To count as a qualifying gain/loss, players signed would need to earn around $3 million per year or more and must be signed by the cut-off date, which is typically about 10 days after the draft. That may in theory delay some players mentioned above from getting a deal this month, because teams (including the Jets) may not wish to make qualifying additions that will net off against potential compensatory picks.
