New York Jets Team Needs and Offseason Headquarters Page


The New York Jets are going to be one of the more interesting teams to watch in 2014. As much as has been made about the whole Mark Sanchez saga, Tebowmania hitting New York, and now the immense pressure on 2013 second rounder Geno Smith, the Jets actually have a pretty good team.

They made a splash in free agency, signing what most people believed to be the #1 wide receiver in Denver’s Eric Decker. They nearly made the playoffs this past season and I’m very intrigued at how they are going to continue to rebuild through the draft.

Jets Top Team Needs

1. Safety

The Jets got desperate enough at safety last year after losing LaRon Landry that they tried signing Ed Reed. This is a position that needs to be looked at..

2. Cornerback

With Dee Milliner developing, the Jets need another corner on the outside now that Antonio Cromartie has bolted for Arizona.

3. Wide Receiver

Even with Eric Decker signed, the Jets need a true number one receiver.

4. Tight End

5. Guard

6. Inside Linebacker

7. Rush Linebacker

    A splash? An aging injury pronged back up. A #2 receiver, being passed off as a #1. A coin toss at guard. An aging corner coming off surgery. A speedy wide receiver who has managed to spend more time off the field then on it throughout his career. And multiple of their own players from a roster that was lacking talent to begin with. If it was a splash then the Jets must have been thrown into a small puddle! They will be interesting to watch this season due the draft and the opportunities they have to get younger and faster, but free agency was a disappointment in NY.
