The NY Jets set out to improve their roster in a big way this offseason. Following another disappointing four-win season, it was clear that the Jets needed to do some serious roster remodeling.

That's exactly what they did, as the team made major additions in both free agency and the 2022 NFL Draft. In the process, they bolstered a number of positions on the roster.

The tight end position was completely reshaped with the additions of C.J. Uzomah, Tyler Conklin, and Jeremy Ruckert. The Jets added playmakers at wide receiver and running back in the form of Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall.

The offensive line received an upgrade following the signing of Pro Bowl guard Laken Tomlinson. On the defensive side of the ball, players like Jermaine Johnson and Jacob Martin were added to an already deep defensive line.

The secondary already received an overhaul with the likes of Sauce Gardner, D.J. Reed, and Jordan Whitehead completely reinvigorating the unit. The result is a Jets roster that's the most talented we've seen in at least half a decade.

On paper, this Jets roster should be able to compete in 2022. Maybe not for a Super Bowl, but provided they receive competent quarterback play, there's no reason why the Jets shouldn't be playing meaningful games in December.

That doesn't mean there isn't still work to be done, however. Let's take a look at four positions the Jets could still address in free agency.
