2. Ben Jones, C

Another player who could be contemplating retirement is longtime Tennessee Titans center Ben Jones. Jones has long been one of the NFL's most underappreciated players and one of the league's best overall centers.

He only made his first Pro Bowl in 2022, but Jones was a staple of Tennessee's offensive line for years now. Now a free agent, the Jets should absolutely make Jones a top priority.

The Jets do not currently have a starting center on their roster and, assuming Jones isn't retiring, he should be the top option on the open market.

After 11 years split between the Houston Texans and Titans, Jones should be looking to sign with a contender. The opportunity to snap balls to Aaron Rodgers might be too much to pass up.

1. Odell Beckham Jr., WR

This one is obvious. Much like Adam Thielen, Odell Beckham Jr. has never played with Rodgers, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty of smoke around him following Rodgers to New York.

Beckham is reportedly one of the players Rodgers would like the Jets to sign, and the former All-Pro wide receiver was seen FacTiming Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner ahead of his workout last week.

Beckham will have his fair share of suitors on the open market, but he's likely looking for the best fit at this stage of his career. What's a better fit than catching passes from a top-five quarterback of all-time in a market he should be very familiar with?

I'm not sure how the Jets would be able to fairly divide snaps and targets if they signed Beckham, but you can never have too much depth in the NFL. If Rodgers wants Beckham and the feeling is mutual, the Jets might just make it happen.
