New York Jets: Gang Green Paving Playoff Road With Free Agents
The New York Jets are making waves this week by signing players who can help them reach the playoffs.
On top of that Gang Green signed former Baltimore Raven C.J. Mosley to a five-year, $85 million deal. Mosley had 105 tackles for the Charm City last year and brings extra stability to a defense led by new d-coordinator Gregg Williams.
It is clear the Jets can compete on both sides of the ball, especially if Darnold can improve upon the production he had last year.
The New York Jets have plenty of optimism with new head coach Adam Gase. Gase has made a name for himself with quarterbacks around the NFL. Former QBs Jay Cutler and Peyton Manning often rave about Gase.
Additionally, the New York Jets are linked to free agent back Le’Veon Bell. Indeed, if they can get him into the fold then the Jets will have a team that can get creative offensively and play fast.
New York has sent a message to the rest of the NFL and are knocking on the door.
Kelechi Osemele adds experience at the guard position, which will help keep Darnold upright, especially if he stays healthy.
Osemele is a two-time Pro Bowler and he also made the All-Pro team once in his career.
New York can only get better after finishing 4-12 in 2018. Gang Green ranked 29th in defense in 2018. They also had the 23rd ranked offense last season. That was after playing with veteran Josh McCown as Darnold dealt with injury.
Over on the defensive side, the Jets have returning players such as Josh Adams. He collected 115 tackles from his safety spot and 3.5 sacks.
Plus Avery Williamson packs a punch and produced a team-high 121 tackles last year to go along with three sacks.
The New York Jets look like a playoff team. However, they will need the right amount of coaching to fill the gaps in between the newcomers and stand out performers who were on their team a year ago.
