The New York Jets have to get busy this offseason. They have to be aggressive in free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft to get into contention ASAP.
Joe Douglas, Adam Gase, and the New York Jets have work to do in the 2020 offseason.
They also may have a new, exciting window opening up.
For the time being, there is at least a possibility that Tom Brady will not be suiting up for the New England Patriots for the first time in 20 years. Brady’s presence with the Pats has proven to be an impossible hurdle for the Jets to really clear, save for a couple of successful seasons.
The Jets have been unable to find the winning formula, but now with their franchise quarterback — Sam Darnold — firmly in place, they need to do everything they can to build around him.
With over $49 million in cap space currently, the Jets have enough money to do some substantial building through free agency.
What moves could this team make to actually get into contention for the 2020 season? Is that even possible?
If the Jets can surround Sam Darnold properly, there is a chance this team could surprise in 2020 and actually make some noise. But general manager Joe Douglas has to push the right buttons in the offseason.
There’s urgency, like always, and the Jets have assets, so they need to make moves. Here are five moves this team could make in the next couple of months to make noise in the AFC East in 2020.
