The NY Jets have made it clear that they plan to build their roster through the draft under general manager Joe Douglas. It's a wise approach, but one that must be supplemented with other additions.
The Jets weren't big spenders in Douglas' first offseason with the team opting for low-profile, cheap additions — many of which did not work out. But they showed this past offseason that they aren't afraid to spend when the price is right.
The Jets were one of the top spenders in this year's free-agency period with their two biggest signings coming with Carl Lawson and Corey Davis. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, the Jets haven't gotten the impact they wanted out of their free-agent class in 2021.
As the Jets look to the future and continue to rebuild their roster, the draft will be their most important avenue when it comes to acquiring talent. But free agency shouldn't be overlooked.
While it's still far too early to accurately gauge which players will ultimately hit the open market and what their values might be, we can take an early look at some of the best players who could feasibly be free agents come March.
In this case, we're going to be taking a look at five of the premier players who might hit the open market this offseason. All five players would be very appealing targets for the Jets if they became available.
