General manager Joe Douglas is not done making moves for the talented team in New York. After an outstanding draft that saw the NY Jets take Sauce Gardner at No. 4, Ohio State standout Garrett Wilson at No. 10, and edge rusher Jermaine Johnson at No. 26 after trading up, the team still has some holes to fill.
The front office obviously addressed certain needs in the draft, building around second-year quarterback Zach Wilson, and polishing up their defense.
They also made smart additions when drafting outside of the first round taking potentially the best tight end available in Jeremy Ruckert, and running back Breece Hall. However, even with these decisions made in the draft, the options to add talent to this roster are still open.
Free agency has been something the Jets have capitalized heavily on this year. This year in free agency, the Jets have already been able to bring in former Cincinnati Bengals starting tight end C.J. Uzomah, former starting safety of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jordan Whitehead, and many other depth signings.
These additions have shown the direction that the Jets front office is headed toward: build a strong supporting cast around the young core of talent in New York.
With countless veterans, and league-established talent still readily available in the free-agent market, the opportunities to add talent to the young core in the Big Apple are endless.
