The New York Jets have new uniforms, and they’re ready to turn over a new leaf under head coach Adam Gase when offseason workouts kickoff Monday.
A new head coach, new threads, and a new identity.
That’s what the New York Jets are hoping can take them back to being playoff contenders, starting with the 2019 season.
It all begins when the team’s offseason program begins Monday, as the Jets look to rebuild their historic franchise that once made the playoffs with regularity. Since losing back-to-back AFC title games, it’s been eight long years since the Jets tasted the postseason.
Here’s a breakdown of all the important offseason workout dates for this year’s team:

The Jets made some key additions this offseason, signing stars like linebacker C.J. Mosley and running back Le’Veon Bell, along with key role players like slot receiver Jamison Crowder. With a full year of NFL experience under the belt of quarterback Sam Darnold, and the fiery leadership of safety Jamal Adams, the Jets are poised to make a big jump in 2019.
Helping matters even further is the No. 3 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, which the Jets currently hold. After losing out on Anthony Barr in free agency, the Jets should still be able to land one of this year’s top pass-rushing prospects, such as Kentucky’s Josh Allen.
In many different ways, this year’s Jets team will look nothing like the team that lost 10 or more games in each of the last three seasons.
Changing that narrative starts Monday.
