2. Solomon Thomas, DT, NY Jets

The Jets added two new pieces to their defensive tackle room this offseason, signing former San Francisco 49ers first-round pick Javon Kinlaw and backup nose tackle Leki Fotu. That didn't stop them from bringing back a familiar face, however.

Solomon Thomas is one of the most beloved and respected members of the Jets' locker room, which is why it came as no surprise when the team re-signed him to a one-year, $3 million contract last week.

Thomas is expected to reprise his role in the Jets' defensive line rotation, a role in which he recorded a career-high five sacks in 43 percent of his team's defensive snaps last season.

The former No. 3 overall pick isn't the flashiest member of the defensive line rotation nor is he the most productive, but he's a reliable run-stopper and locker-room leader. Thomas will be welcomed back with open arms.

1. Chuck Clark, S, NY Jets

Perhaps the most important re-signing of the offseason so far, the Jets managed to bring back safety Chuck Clark on a dirt-cheap one-year, $1.83 million contract.

That's a remarkable bargain for a player who is currently projected to be one of the Jets' starting safeties in 2024. If that holds up, the Jets will be paying their two starting safeties a combined $2.8 million next season.

The Clark trade was arguably the Jets' savviest move of the 2023 offseason, which is why it was devastating when he tore his ACL in OTAs. Clark's return could be massive for a Jets' defense that could really use his consistency in the back end.

It's not often a team is able to re-sign a rock-solid starter for under $2 million. Re-signing Clark is one of the most underrated moves the Jets have made so far this offseason.
