Everyone loves a good reunion, right? The sports world is full of fun tales of reconciliation over the years, and the NY Jets are no strangers to that.

From Darrelle Revis to Laveranues Coles to Demario Davis, the Jets have had numerous players over the years return to the organization after a few years away. Perhaps the same could happen this offseason.

The Jets will have an opportunity to reunite with some notable former players, as quite a few ex-Jets are set to hit the open market. Maybe, just maybe, a couple of them could make their way back to Florham Park.

This list is only reserved for the former Jets who could realistically re-join the organization. That means players like Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, who both ended their Jets tenures on bad terms, likely do not qualify.

5. The NY Jets could sign Tyler Kroft

Tyler Kroft spent one year with the Jets in 2021, appearing in nine games before a chest injury shortened his season. The veteran tight end hauled in 16 catches for 173 yards and a touchdown in his lone season in Florham Park.

Kroft isn't exactly a superstar pass-catcher, but he's proven to be a useful blocking tight end and special-teams contributor. That's how he's been able to put together a very respectable nine-year NFL career.

The Jets are expected to part ways with C.J. Uzomah this offseason, leaving the team with a vacancy in their tight end room behind Tyler Conklin and Jeremy Ruckert.

It might not be the worst idea to sign Kroft to a minimum contract to have him compete with the likes of Zack Kuntz, Kenny Yeboah, etc. for the third tight end job. Not necessarily a high-profile move, but a Jets/Kroft reunion at least makes some degree of sense.
