The NY Jets have made a significant splash over the first two days of free agency landing numerous impact starters and re-signing a few of their own key contributors from last season.
In a way, it almost feels too good to be true. The Jets are signing accomplished players at major positions of need all for very reasonable prices at or below market value.
On top of that, they're rewarding their own internal standouts such as Braxton Berrios and Tevin Coleman with new contracts. This isn't the Jets of old. They've absolutely crushed it in free agency doing everything the right way.
The additions of Laken Tomlinson, D.J. Reed, Jordan Whitehead, and C.J. Uzomah help provide a foundation for a new era of Jets football, one that will be built through homegrown talent and supplemented with talented free agents on reasonable contracts.
That's the Joe Douglas way, and at least on paper, his vision is starting to take shape.
The Jets are probably done making major additions as we head into the third day (and first official day) of free agency. At this stage, they're more looking to fill out the roster with depth signings.
We're talking the Jarrad Davis, Tevin Coleman, Keelan Cole-like signings. Players who can still make an impact, but not guys that are going to cost a premium. Those are the players we're set to look at today.
You aren't going to find a Tyrann Mathieu or a Chandler Jones on this list. The Jets aren't targeting those players. Instead, we take a look at 16 (mostly) value signings the Jets could realistically make to help fill out their roster.
