Description: The Jets have reached an agreement with three-time Pro Bowl running back Chris Johnson.
Insight: According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, it's a two-year, $8 million deal. Johnson's yards per carry dipped to 3.9 last season with Tennessee and the bigger Chris Ivory (6-foot, 222 pounds) will probably see most of the carries around the goal line. For the first time in years, Johnson isn't a must-start fantasy player.
Description: Former Raiders receiver Jacoby Ford has signed with the New York Jets.
Insight: Ford's one constant is that he's been injured more than healthy and he's yet to prove he can be a full-time NFL receiver. Since being drafted in 2010, he's totaled just 57 receptions for 848 yards and three touchdowns. He does own four career kickoff returns for scores.
Description: Michael Vick has agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract with the Jets. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Vick wanted a starting job and now he has one. With Eric Decker in the fold, he'll have a pretty good receiver to throw to as well. Geno Smith's fantasy value will be zilch unless Vick gets hurt. Fortunately for Smith, Vick hasn't played an entire 16-game season since 2006.
Description: The Jets have officially released quarterback Mark Sanchez. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports
Insight: He became expendable when the team signed Mike Vick earlier today. Most of the league's quarterback openings have already been filled, meaning Sanchez will likely have to settle for a backup job in 2014.
Description: The Jets have released wideout Santonio Holmes.
Insight: Holmes had just 23 receptions and one touchdown in 11 games last season, though he did average 19.8 yards per catch. His time in New York was a complete failure compared to his production in Pittsburgh.
Description: Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson was honored as the 2013 Defensive Rookie of the Year on Saturday.
Insight: He barely beat out Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso for the award. Richardson clawed his way to 77 tackles and 3.5 sacks this season while also adding two touchdowns on four rushing attempts as a part-time fullback. The 6-foot-3, 294-pounder was drafted 13th overall out of Mizzou last April.
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory had his third 100-yard game of the season Sunday against the Browns.
Insight: Ivory dealt with a hamstring injury early in the season and didn't take the reigns of the team's backfield until Week 6, but he's been a solid flex option since then with 699 rushing yards and three touchdowns over his last nine games.
Description: Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie suffered a head injury in Sunday's game.
Insight: Cromartie stayed on the field all game, but after the game the injury came to light. If its a concussion he'll obviously have to go through the protocol before being allowed to play against Carolina next weekend.
Description: Jets receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is expected to be actice Sunday against Oakland.
Insight: Lets hope active means more than the three snaps he saw last week while "active." Fantasy owners should not trust him to be on the field or that quarterback Geno Smith could get him the ball even if he was open.
Description: Jets quarterback Geno Smith will get the start next week against Oakland. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
Insight: It certainly can't be off his work Sunday against Miami. That performace was one of the worst we've seen this season (4-of-10, 29 yards, 1 INT) and got him replaced by Matt Simms at halftime. New York's struggling second round pick is making Jets fans miss Mark Sanchez.
Description: New York halfback Chris Ivory is listed as probable on the team's Week 13 injury report.
Insight: Ivory suffered a sprained ankle Sunday against Baltimore but has been able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week. He'll split carries with Bilal Powell this week against the Dolphins.
Description: New York QB Geno Smith will draw the start again in Week 13. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
Insight: If the Jets had a capable backup, he'd be starting already. Smith has been a disaster over the last six weeks, producing just one touchdown pass and ten interceptions in that span. Despite Smith's poor play, the Jets still have a decent shot at making the playoffs. They're tied with Tennessee for the final wild card spot in the AFC.
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory suffered an ankle sprain in the first quarter.
Insight: Ivory had been hot with 237 yards and two touchdowns over the previous two weeks, but finished with nine carries for 35 yards to the disappointment of fantasy owners everywhere. We await word of the severity.
Description: The Jets reached a deal with free agent linebacker Jermaine Cunningham on Wednesday.
Insight: This will be the third team Cunningham has been with in the last three months. With just three and a half sacks and two forced fumbles in three seasons, Cunningham probably won't be an every down player for his new team.
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory came within two yards of the 100-yard bonus in Week 11 at Buffalo.
Insight: Ivory left no doubt about who New York's lead RB is. He had 98 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, while Bilal Powell had 27 yards on five rushes. Ivory has had 98 or more yards in three of the last four games and a touchdown in two straight.
Description: New York receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) will make his return Sunday against the Bills, but he won't be on the field for 100 percent of the snaps, according to ESPNNewYork.com. Holmes hasn't played since Week 4.
Insight: "Will he be on a pitch count? I think we’ll be smart about that," coach Rex Ryan said. "We’re not going to put him out there for 80 snaps. But does he look good to me? He absolutely looks good to me." Holmes is a WR4 at best.
Description: Safety Ed Reed has signed with the New York Jets.
Insight: Jets coach Rex Ryan had a previous relationship with Reed when both were in Baltimore. We're not sure how much Reed has to offer at this point, but he could certainly be a mentor for some of the Jets young defensive backs.
Description: New York receiver Santonio Holmes expects to be released after the season. SOURCE: New York Daily News
Insight: It wouldn't exactly be a shock to see him go. Holmes wore out his welcome in East Rutherford a long time ago. He'll always be remembered for his Super Bowl heroics in Pittsburgh but the truth is Holmes has really only had a couple of productive seasons. In four games this season, the 29-year-old has made ten catches for 243 yards and one touchdown. Most of it came in a Week 3 win over Buffalo (five receptions for 154 yards).
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes (hamstring) could be back in Week 11, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
Insight: "I think he'll play, said coach Rex Ryan. Holmes hasn't suited up since Sept. 29 at Tennessee. He has 243 yards on just 10 receptions this season, but 154 of them came in Week 3 versus the Bills, New York's Week 1 opponent. Don't expect consistent production from the 29-year-old.
Description: Jets tight end Kellen Winslow has served his four-game suspension for violating the league's policy against PEDs.
Insight: Winslow has caught 17 balls for 169 yards and a pair of scores, but his only double-digit performance came in Week 1 against Tampa Bay. The end of the suspension isn't likely to change any fantasy lineups.
Description: Jets running back Chris Ivory had his second 100-yard game in three weeks Sunday against the Saints, his former team.
Insight: Ivory ran with a purpose against the team that traded him this past offseason, gaining 139 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries after seeing just six carries in Week 8 at Cincinnati. Bilal Powell finished with 29 yards on nine carries. The split will limit Ivory's fantasy value, but he should be the lead ballcarrier after New York's Week 10 bye.
Description: New York Jets wideout Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is done for the day due to an elbow injury, reports ESPN's John Clayton.
Insight: He had one catch for one yard before suffering the injury. Kerley has posted a couple of decent games this season, but has yet to crack the 100-yard mark in a game. With Jeff Cumberland (concussion) also out, David Nelson will serve as Geno Smith's top target in the passing game.
Description: According to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, the Jets aren't "overly optimistic" about Santonio Holmes (hamstring) returning in Week 9 against the Saints.
Insight: The Jets have a bye in Week 10, so it seems likely we won't see Holmes until Week 11 at Buffalo. The Bengals locked down Jeremy Kerley Sunday, leaving David Nelson as Geno Smith's No. 1 target. Nelson caught eight passes for 80 yards on 12 targets, giving him 160 yards the last two games.
Description: Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland suffered a concussion Sunday against the Bengals, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
Insight: It was a mild one. Cumberland is likely to play against the Saints but of course he'll have to pass concussion tests first. The tight end only had one catch for nine yards on two targets Sunday after seeing 16 targets the previous three games.
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes (hamstring) could sit out until after the team's bye (Week 10).
Insight: At this point fantasy owners should not be counting on Holmes to help them much before the playoffs. And if you have gotten into the playoffs without him, it's probably a good move to continue playing with the ones who got you there.
Description: The Jets gave Chris Ivory 34 carries Sunday against the Patriots and the running back came away with 104 rushing yards.
Insight: According to Kimberly A. Martin of Newsday, coach Rex Ryan said Ivory had the "hot hand" so they stuck with him over Bilal Powell. If 3.1 ypc is considered hot, we don't want to know what cold is. Bilal Powell saw just three carries in the game. Neither player can be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday and is not expected to play Sunday against the Patriots.
Insight: According to ESPNNY.com, Holmes has "little chance" to play Sunday. Tight end Jeff Cumberland has led the Jets in receiving yards in each of the last two weeks and with Holmes injured and Kellen Winslow suspended he has a good chance to do it again in Week 7.
Description: Jets tight end Kellen Winslow was suspended for four games for violating the league's policy against PEDs.
Insight: Winslow has caught 17 balls for 169 yards and a pair of scores, but his only double-digit performance came in Week 1 against Tampa Bay. This suspension isn't likely to change any fantasy lineups.
Description: Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie reportedly suffered a non-contact knee injury in practice Thursday and was taken for an MRI. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPNNY.com
Insight: The team is concerned, Cimini reports. Cromartie is one of the top shutdown corners in the league so any fantasy value that the Jets defense has would be lost if he's out. Dee Milliner (hamstring) is also out, so Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger could be throwing on Kyle Wilson, Darrin Walls and Isaiah Trufant Sunday afternoon.
Description: Quarterback David Garrard has come out of retirement to join the Jets.
Insight: Garrard was put on New York's exempt list so he technically isn't on the active roster. With Geno Smith finally beginning to turn things around, Garrard figures only to be a backup when and if he's activated.
Description: The Jets have picked up Zach Sudfeld, who was waived by the Patriots on Thursday.
Insight: Sudfeld's ADP soared after he was impressive during training camp and the preseason, but he failed to make an impact when the season started. He isn't on the fantasy radar at the moment, though he certainly could emerge as an option at tight end for the Jets later this season.
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes, who left Sunday's game early in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury, is expected to miss a couple of weeks, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.
Insight: Holmes had a season-high 154 receiving yards in Week 3, but he managed just one catch, for 25 yards Sunday against the Titans. The Jets will sign David Nelson for depth.
Description: Injured Jets running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Ivory pulled his hamstring in last Sunday's win over Buffalo and is doubtful for Week 4 against the Titans. Bilal Powell broke out with 149 yards on 27 carries against the Bills and has 226 yards and a touchdown on 52 carries this season. Powell is a lock for 20 touches Sunday and should be started in most fantasy leagues.
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes (foot) maintains that he's still not 100 percent healthy. SOURCE: NY Daily News
Insight: Holmes missed most of 2012 with a Lisfranc injury in his left foot and said he's not fully healthy even after producing a season-high 154 receiving yards Sunday against the Bills. "I still have a long way to go," Holmes said. In Week 4, the Jets play the Titans, who gave up 33 catches, 392 yards and two touchdowns to opposing receivers in the first two games before holding San Diego receivers to five catches for 41 yards in Week 3. Holmes is a risky WR3 in 10-team leagues but 12-team owners should consider him in Week 4.
Description: Matt Simms could be an option for the Jets at quarterback should Geno Smith continue to struggle. SOURCE: ESPN New York
Insight: Smith looked terrible against New England and it could be just a matter of a time before he plays himself out of the starting job. Simms has never played in an NFL game so it's difficult to judge his fantasy value.
Description: The Jets have placed quarterback Mark Sanchez on the injured reserve/designated to return list. SOURCE: Albert Breer, NFL.com
Insight: That makes him eligible to return in Week 12. Sanchez has been battling shoulder issues. With Sanchez set to become a free agent after the season, it's possible that he's played his final game as a New York Jet.
Description: Reports surfaced earlier this week that Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez would need surgery on his injured shoulder but now his doctors don't think surgery will be necessary. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
Insight: Rex Ryan told the media Friday that Sanchez is still hoping to play this season. His replacement, Geno Smith, struggled mightily in a loss to the Patriots on Thursday night (15-for-35 passing, 214 yards, no touchdowns, three interceptions).
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes was limited in Wednesday's practice, but should be ready for Thursday's game with New England
Insight: Holmes hasn't produced a 1,000-yard receiving season since 2009 and caught just one ball for 13 yards in Week 1. With Jeremy Kerley (concussion) likely sidelined, he should be a better option in Week 2.
Description: Jets tight end Kellen Winslow was limited in participation in Wednesday's practice.
Insight: Given hius injury history, that's to be expected. Winslow had 79 yards and a touchdown on seven catches Sunday against the Bills. He should see consistent targets from Smith and is a decent option in two-TE leagues.
Description: Jets tight end Kellen Winslow had 79 yards and a touchdown on seven catches Sunday against the Bills.
Insight: Rookie QB Geno Smith looked his way eight times, second on the team to Stephen Hill's nine. The oft-injured tight end had just one catch for 12 yards last season after catching 75 for 763 in 2011. He should see consistent targets from Smith and is a decent option in two-TE leagues.
Description: Running backs coach Anthony Lynn said that Chris Ivory will get the goal line carries, according to a New York Daily News report.
Insight: If Ivory can stay healthy this season, there are plenty of questions in this area including a hamstring injury in the preseason, there are at least 250 carries with his name on them. If they include the goal line work he could be a viable RB2.
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes will be active for Sunday's season opener against Tampa Bay, though ESPN New York reporter Rich Cimini says that he'll be used in a limited capacity.
Insight: That means he's probably not worth starting. Holmes hasn't produced a 1,000-yard receiving season since 2009, his last year in Pittsburgh. With Geno Smith under center, Holmes is even less appealing than usual this season.
Description: According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, Jets coach Rex Ryan said that Bilal Powell "earned the right to start" Week 1 but added that Chris Ivory will get "substantial work."
Insight: Ivory is the better player but he missed significant time in training camp due to a hamstring injury. The Jets will play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who had the No. 1 rush defense in the NFL last season, so fantasy owners should stay away from this situation.
Description: The Geno Smith Era has officially begun in East Rutherford. The Jets have announced that he'll be the team's Week 1 starting quarterback.
Insight: He'll face the Buccaneers in the season opener. Tampa's defense struggled mightily last season but with newcomers Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson anchoring the secondary, this could be a difficult matchup for the former West Virginia Mountaineer. Smith finished the preseason with a 54.6 QB rating on 37 pass attempts.
Description: The NFL has slapped Jets halfback Mike Goodson with a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Insight: He's been absent for all of training camp though ESPN's Adam Schefter is hearing that Goodson will arrive at Jets camp sometime within the next 24 hours. Goodson racked up 221 yards on just 35 carries last year with Oakland. He'll be eligible to return October 7th against the Falcons.
Description: Wide receiver Braylon Edwards has been released by the Jets.
Insight: Edwards hasn't held much fantasy value since his first stint with the Jets back in 2010. Santonio Holmes (if healthy) and Stephen Hill figure to get most of the targets but Edwards could have been a nice option near the goal line.
Description: Mark Sanchez won't play in New York's preseason finale Thursday versus Philadelphia. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Sanchez bruised his shoulder in Saturday's win over the Giants. Despite a poor outing on Saturday, Geno Smith (three picks and a safety) has emerged as the frontrunner in the Jets starting quarterback battle.
Description: Jets rookie Geno Smith will have one last chance to prove himself Saturday against the Giants.
Insight: Smith missed last week's game against Jacksonville with a sprained ankle but he'll be the Jets' starter on Saturday. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News thinks Smith could win the starting job over Mark Sanchez if he plays well and doesn't commit any turnovers.
Description: The Jets signed former Browns wideout Mohamed Massaquoi on Thursday. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: He was cut by Jacksonville earlier this preseason. Massaquoi's yardage total has fallen each of the last three seasons, which is pretty troubling when his career-high is only 624 yards. A turnaround is unlikely for Massaquoi in East Rutherford, especially with accuracy-challenged Mark Sanchez throwing him the football.
Description: According to a source of the New York Post, Jets receiver Santonio Holmes (foot) has received medical clearance to begin football activities but is resisting.
Insight: The Jets haven't officially cleared Holmes, but the Post reports that "many people around the team believe the mercurial wide receiver is just trying to avoid training camp and he is healthier than he is letting on." Holmes says he cannot run routes yet and still feels pain every day when he wakes up, 11 months since suffering a Lisfranc injury that led to two surgeries. The team signed former Browns underachiever Mohamed Massaquoi Thursday.
Description: New York quarterback Mark Sanchez had a shaky performance in Saturday's preseason game against Jacksonville.
Insight: Sanchez played three quarters, which is rare to see in the exhibition season, completing 13-of-23 passes for 165 yards, a touchdown and one interception. He also ran the ball twice for five yards. A solid outing probably would have cemented Sanchez's place as the starter but after the game Rex Ryan seemed noncommittal about either Jets quarterback (Geno Smith missed Saturday's game with a sprained ankle). Sanchez will have another chance to distance himself from Smith next week against the Giants.
Description: The Jets announced Thursday that QB Mark Sanchez will start the second preseason game Saturday against the Jaguars.
Insight: Geno Smith was expected to draw the start after Sanchez started the first preseason game, but the rookie is dealing with an ankle sprain and put on a performance in practice Wednesday that coach Rex Ryan called "brutal." On his first series of the preseason Sanchez threw an ugly pick-six to lineman Ziggy Ansah, but he finished 10-of-13 for 125 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
Description: Jets coach Rex Ryan said quarterback Geno Smith was "brutal" in Wednesday's practice. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
Insight: "That was Geno's worst day, obviously," Ryan said to reporters after practice. "We've seen guys have bad days, but this was a really bad day." Smith threw three interceptions on Wednesday, which Ryan remarked as "way too many." Ryan hinted that Smith's sprained ankle could be what's causing him to struggle. It's looking more and more like Mark Sanchez will win the Jets' starting quarterback job.
Description: According to ESPN New York, the Jets aren't sure if Santonio Holmes is milking his injury to protect his self interests or if he really is still injured.
Insight: With a $10.75 million cap number in 2014, Holmes is all but guaranteed to be released after this season. It is in his best interest to make sure his Lisfranc injury is fully healed before returning to the field so he doesn't go into next year's offseason with another medical issue.
Description: According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Jets running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) participated in individual drills Sunday.
Insight: Ivory has yet to complete a full practice due to a hamstring injury, which isn't a good sign for a running back that is considered injury-prone, but at least he's making progress in his recovery. If Ivory can stay healthy this season, there are at least 250 carries with his name on them.
Description: Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith suffered an ankle injury during Friday night's preseason opener against the Lions.
Insight: He had been 6-for-7 with 47 yards passing before the injury. It looked pretty minor and we're guessing the Jets took him out just as a precaution. Meanwhile, Mark Sanchez, the other Jets quarterback, went 10-for-13 with a touchdown and a pick. This quarterback battle isn't close to being over yet.
Description: According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNY.com, Jets receiver Stephen Hill is "the most improved player on the team."
Insight: The 6-foot-4 Hill entered the league as a raw 21-year-old with a 40-yard dash time of 4.36 seconds. He's now 22 and has impressed with improved mechanics and route running, according to Cimini. With Santonio Holmes (foot) questionable for Week 1, Hill could emerge as the No. 1 receiver, but that might not mean much with Mark Sanchez at quarterback.
Description: According to the New York Daily News, Jets running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) said he "definitely" will be "full speed" by next Tuesday.
Insight: Ivory has yet to complete a full practice due to a hamstring injury, which isn't a good sign for a running back that is considered injury-prone. If Ivory can stay healthy this season, there are at least 250 carries with his name on them.
Description: According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Jets receiver Santonio Holmes told friends he would "miss at least four games" with a continuing foot injury suffered last September.
Insight: Previously Holmes had said he would be ready for Week 1 so this isn't encouraging news. Holmes continues to work his way back from a Lisfranc injury. Even if the receiver does play this season, he won't be a good fantasy option given the shaky QB situation in New York.
Description: According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, Geno Smith has jumped out to an early lead in the Jets' starting quarterback competition.
Insight: This comes just days after NFL Network's Brian Baldinger said Smith's conditioning was "embarrassing." If Geno gets the job it won't be because he deserved it. It will be because Mark Sanchez deserved it less.
Description: According to ESPNNY.com, the Jets are likely going to have a committee backfield but are privately hoping that Chris Ivory will become a 15-carry per game back.
Insight: ESPNNY.com also said earlier this month that the Jets view Ivory as a "poor man's" Marshawn Lynch. Ivory was frequently banged up during his time with the Saints but also had to compete for carries with three or four other talented backs at all times in a pass-heavy offense. With only Bilal Powell, Joe McKnight and Mike Goodson (if he ever shows up to training camp) to beat out, Ivory should emerge as the No. 1 back on the team if he can stay healthy. Remember, the New York Jets handed Shonn Greene 276 carries last year.
Description: When asked if he would play this season, Jets receiver Santonio Holmes declined to answer, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Previously Holmes had said he would be ready for Week 1 so this isn't encouraging news. Holmes continues to work his way back from a Lisfranc injury. Even if the receiver does play this season, he won't be a good fantasy option given the shaky QB situation in New York.
Description: Receiver Braylon Edwards is expected to re-sign with the Jets as long as he can pass his physical.
Insight: Edwards hasn't held much fantasy value since his first stint with the Jets back in 2010. Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill figure get most of the targets, but Edwards is a nice option near the goal line.
Description: According to ESPN New York, Jets receiver Santonio Holmes will begin training camp on the active/physically unable to perfom list.
Insight: If he had been placed on the reserve/PUP list, Holmes would have had to miss the first six games of the regular season. Holmes suffered a season-ending foot injury in 2012 and he still hasn't fully recovered. Once a fantasy mainstay, Holmes is now a late-round pick at best.
Description: According to ESPNNY.com, the Jets view Chris Ivory as a poor man's Marshawn Lynch.
Insight: Ivory caused 12 missed tackles on just 40 rushing attempts, which nearly equaled former New York running back Shonn Greene's total of 15 on 276 attempts, according to Pro Football Focus. Ivory will have to stay healthy, but if he does he's going to get a ton of touches this season.
Description: Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith could still get on the field even if Mark Sanchez beats him out for the starting role, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.
Insight: The thought is they could put in a read-option set for Smith, but the Jets tried that with Tim Tebow last year and it didn't work. Fantasy owners need Smith to win the job outright for him to have any fantasy value.
Description: Jets No. 2 receiver Stephen Hill will be on a play/rep limit during training camp, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Hill and the Jets desparately need to avoid any setbacks from his surgically-repaired right knee because there are already questions as to whether No. 1 receiver Santonio Holmes (Lisfranc fracture) will be ready for Week 1. Add in questionable QB play and neither Hill or Holmes are an exciting fantasy value in 2013-14.
Description: Jets QB Mark Sanchez is confident he'll win the team's starting quarterback job. SOURCE: ESPN New York
Insight: He better be. Sanchez was flat-out awful last season (66.9 QB rating) and rookie Geno Smith certainly isn't going to roll over for him. The five-year vet will have his work cut out for him in training camp.
Description: Tight end Kellen Winslow has accepted a one-year contract offer from the New York Jets. SOURCE: NBC Sports
Insight: Rex Ryan has been incredibly disappointed with the performance of his tight ends and wide receivers in mini camp and OTAs, citing dropped passes as his primary frustration. If there's one thing the veteran Winslow can do, it's catch passes. In 93 career games, Winslow has 438 grabs for 4,848 receiving yards and 23 touchdowns. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Winslow open the year as New York's starting tight end.
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes still isn't running or cutting, according to ESPNNY.com.
Insight: Holmes is still rehabbing from the Lisfranc injury he suffered last season and is uncertain for Week 1. Even if he is healthy, the Jets' uncertain QB situation makes him an unattractive fantasy option.
Description: Jets running back Mike Goodson could avoid gun charges if the report from Mike Garafolo of USA Today is correct that the driver of the car has claimed ownership of the gun.
Insight: Goodson still has to deal with drug charges, but the chances are he'll return to the field a lot sooner now without the gun charges in addition. Chris Ivory appears to be the early favorite for starting role with Goodson as his backup.
Description: Jets wideout Santonio Holmes might start the season on the physically unable to perform list. SOURCE: Manish Mehta, New York Daily News
Insight: He's still coming back from a Lisfranc injury that he suffered about halfway through last season. The Jets will have to lean more on Jeremy Kerley and tight end Jeff Cumberland if Holmes and Stephen Hill (knee surgery) are unavailable early in the season.
Description: According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Jets running back Mike Goodson returned to practice Tuesday. Goodson was arrested on weapon and drug charges earlier this month and pled not guilty last week.
Insight: Goodson's attorney said that the legal proceedings could go on for months, but Goodson should be able to practice through the process. That leaves him in the running back mix along with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. Ivory seemingly is in the lead, however.
Description: With Mike Goodson's future up in the air, Chris Ivory doesn't have much competition to be the Jets' feature back, according to the New York Post.
Insight: Goodson was arrested last week on drugs and weapons charges, leaving just Ivory, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight in the backfield, and new GM John Idzik has been trying to dump McKnight. Ivory showed flashes in limited playing time with New Orleans, averaging 5.1 yards per carry and scoring eight touchdowns on 256 carries in 24 career games.
Description: Tebow Mania won't be coming to New England according to Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Apparently head coach Bill Belichick "hates" Tebow as a player. That's pretty harsh. Tebow was let go recently by the Jets and hasn't drawn much interest from other teams. His best hope is to land a backup job before training camp starts in July.
Description: New Orleans traded running back Chris Ivory to the Jets for a fourth-round pick. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports
Insight: We heard rumblings about an Ivory trade earlier in the week and now it looks like the deal has finally come to fruition. Ivory was never a fantasy-worthy back in New Orleans but we're expecting that to change now that he's part of a more run-oriented offense in New York.
Description: The Jets snagged West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith with the seventh pick of the second round (39th overall).
Insight: ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter suggested that this move could represent the end of the Mark Sanchez Era in New York. With Smith, Sanchez, David Garrard and Tim Tebow all on the Jets' roster, head coach Rex Ryan will have a big decision to make later this offseason. We're guessing the rookie Smith will be under center for New York's Week 1 matchup with Tampa Bay.
Description: According to ESPN, the Jets have a deal in place to send Darrell Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Insight: The trade is pending a physical, and is reported to include the 13th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Tampa Bay and New York have been discussing a Revis trade for months, but the Bucs' unwillingness to part with that draft choice had been holding up the deal. With Revis and Dashon Goldson in place, Tampa Bay potentially will have a game-changing pass defense to combat the likes of Roddy White, Julio Jones, Jimmy Graham, Marques Colston and Steve Smith.
