4. The NY Jets could sign OG Kevin Zeitler

The Jets have already added 40 percent of the Baltimore Ravens' starting offensive line from last season in John Simpson and Morgan Moses. Why not shoot for a clean 60 percent with the addition of Kevin Zeitler?

Zeitler is the last remaining high-end interior offensive line option left on the open market. Even at 34 years old, Zeitler remains one of the better guards in the NFL.

The 2023 Pro Bowler hasn't allowed more than two sacks in a season since 2019 and has played 15+ games in each of the last nine seasons. He is everything the Jets need in an offensive lineman and more.

The only issue now is that signing Zeitler would likely force the Jets to move Alijah Vera-Tucker to left tackle. That might not be something they're willing to do, but Zeitler's talented enough to warrant consideration.

3. The NY Jets could sign WR Marquise Brown

Calvin Ridley reset the wide receiver market on Wednesday when he signed a four-year, $92 million contract with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday. The Jets were never going to pay anywhere near that much for any player this offseason, but they're expected to be active in the wide receiver market.

Perhaps if the price is right they could make a run at Marquise Brown. The speedy wideout is coming off a disappointing 2023 campaign, but he's just two years removed from a 1,000-yard season with the Baltimore Ravens in 2021.

Brown isn't a No. 1 option, and he likely isn't going to be worth what he receives on the open market. But for a team like the Jets desperate for wide receiver help, perhaps this is a player they explore.

There are better, cheaper options available in free agency, but Brown is now one of the most high-profile wide receivers left unsigned. He would be an extremely notable signing for the Jets.
