16. NY Jets target: Joe Flacco, QB

Let's first start with a few players the Jets seem likely to re-sign, or at least consider re-signing. Joe Flacco is very much still on the Jets' radar, and bringing him back this offseason feels probable.

Flacco would provide further veteran insurance for the Jets' QB room and compete with Mike White for the backup quarterback job behind Zach Wilson.

15. NY Jets target: Dan Feeney, OG

Yes, it appears the Jets are still interested in re-signing offensive lineman Dan Feeney. The Jets' staff likes Feeney's versatility and believe that he's adequate depth at both center and guard.

Feeney started five games last season and could be brought back to serve as one of the team's primary backup interior offensive linemen.

14. NY Jets target: Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, OG

This is probably the most impactful re-signing the Jets could still make. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was a genuine upgrade at right guard when the Jets traded for him at the deadline last season.

He went on to start seven games down the stretch replacing Greg Van Roten in the starting lineup. If the Jets re-sign Duvernay-Tardif, expect them to move on from Van Roten — something they can do with $0 in dead cap.

13. NY Jets target: Takkarist McKinley, DE

Now on to those external additions. Head coach Robert Saleh loves having as deep of a defensive line rotation as possible. Even though the Jets seem likely to address edge rusher early in the draft, one value signing they could make in free agency is former first-round pick, Takkarist McKinley.

McKinley hasn't lived up to his potential in the NFL, but he's settled into a nice role as a situational pass rusher. That's the role he could fill with the Jets, and it likely wouldn't take much to land him.
