6. Jake Hanson, OL, NY Jets

The Jets re-signed a pair of restricted free agents this offseason. The first we're going to talk about is backup offensive lineman Jake Hanson, who re-signed on a one-year, $1.1 million contract last week.

The deal includes just $45,000 in guarantees, meaning that Hanson is far from a lock to make the 53-man roster. He proved last season that he could be cheap and valuable depth, though.

Hanson joined the Jets' practice squad in November and before long was thrust into a starting role following a litany of injuries. The former Packers draft pick held his own and likely performed the best out of any of the practice-squad players the Jets were forced to start along the offensive line.

The Jets will likely still look to add to their offensive line depth this offseason, but Hanson has guard/center versatility and could stick around as cheap depth.

5. Kenny Yeboah, TE, NY Jets

The other restricted free agent the Jets signed is tight end Kenny Yeboah. Yeboah was re-signed to a one-year, $1.4 million contract with a little more guaranteed money than Hanson, $225,000.

The former undrafted free agent is entering his fourth NFL season in 2024 and will be hoping to continue carving out a role as a regular contributor on special teams.

Yeboah missed most of last season with a hamstring injury but returned to appear in the final five games of the year. In those five games, Yeboah was on the field for 78 percent of the Jets' special teams snaps.

Yeboah is a favorite of Brant Boyer and is currently penciled in as the No. 3 tight end on the Jets' depth chart. He has a good chance to make the roster, either as a third or fourth tight end.
