QB



Though there are two more years remaining on Aaron Rodgers contract, the Jets have stacked the lineup with big-name free agents on 1-year contracts. Guys who are clearly on the downside of their careers (OTs Morgan Moses and Tyron Smith, Mike Williams), guys who are cresting (Hasaan Reddick, DJ Reed) and some 1-year prove-its (Javon Kinlaw, Soloman Thomas). If the season flops and Rodgers decided to hang it up, the 1-year deals will prove a prescient move by GM Joe Douglas, setting the Jets up for the re-build.

The Draft brought the team Olu Fashanu in RD1, who with Moses and Smith should be able to keep Rodgers reasonably clean in 2024. Projected slot WR Malachi Corley - oft compared with Deebo Samuel - could contribute straight away, as could CB Qwan'tez Stiggers.

Looking ahead to the 2025 Draft, we could see Douglas and HC Robert Saleh targeting their QBOTF, though such talent is typically acquired with top-5 picks. If not QB, we shall monitor the edge defender rotation in 2024. The team let John Franklin Myers and Bryce Huff (and their 127 combined pressures) walk in free agency, replaced by Reddick on his 1-year contract. GM Douglas drafted Jermaine Johnson and Will MacDonald in RD1 of the 2022 and 2023 Drafts, underlining the importance of pass-rush to the team. JJ looks to be emerging into a star (9 sacks, 56 pressures, 83 PFF grade in 2023), but MacDonald could only find the field for 183 snaps in his rookie season. Still, even if both progress further, Saleh prefers a deeper pool for fresh rotation.
