The NY Jets may be bringing back the same regime in 2024 following a calamitous 2023 season, but that doesn't mean there won't be some notable changes to the organization.

This Jets team has very clear needs that will be addressed in the offseason. Expect the Jets to make some additions to the offensive side of the ball in the coming months.

An influx of new talent also means the departure of players currently on the roster. The Jets will undoubtedly be saying goodbye to a number of their own players this offseason as well.

This list is reserved for the Jets players, who will almost definitely be gone this offseason. So, for guys like Bryce Huff and Jordan Whitehead, who could feasibly be re-signed, they won't be included.

7. Al Woods, DT, NY Jets

The Jets signed veteran Al Woods this past offseason with the goal of improving their inconsistent run defense. A traditional run-stuffing nose tackle, Woods may not have been a perfect fit for the Jets' scheme, but he did fill the role the team was looking for.

Woods was a situational player in the Jets' defensive line rotation before suffering a torn Achilles in the team's Week 8 win over the New York Giants. That injury might just be the end of Woods' NFL career.

The 13-year NFL veteran appeared in six games for the Jets in 2023, finishing with six tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss, and a safety. He was fine, but it's hard to imagine the Jets look to bring him back.

Even if Woods doesn't retire, the Jets are likely to go in a different direction with their defensive tackle rotation next season. Quinton Jefferson and Solomon Thomas, also pending free agents, are higher priorities.
