In between now and the start of the new league year, we're going to look at each of the Jets' pending free agents to decide whether or not the Jets should bring them back. We continue today with edge rusher Tim Ward, who is an exclusive rights free agent.
Ward played in 11 games for the Jets in 2021 and registered just 12 tackles and no sacks or quarterback hits. He did bat down two passes but struggled against the run and didn't generate any pressure.
Usually it's an automatic decision to keep an exclusive rights free agent because you can retain their rights by signing them for the minimum but Ward was a disappointment in 2021. What do you think? Please respond to the following poll and expand on your vote in the comments.
