8. NY Jets target: Tyrell Crosby, OT

Tyrell Crosby started 11 games for the Detroit Lions at right tackle last season finishing with a Pro Football Focus grade of 64.2 that ranked 54th out of all offensive tackles.

Despite this, he was a surprising release even with him going into only his fourth NFL season. The Lions hoped they could sneak Crosby through waivers, but it's likely a team claims him.

The Jets could use extra offensive tackle depth and Crosby is the best you're going to find at this stage.

7. NY Jets target: Quincy Williams, LB

The Jets could look to set forth a brotherly reunion if they choose to claim Quinnen Williams' brother, Quincy Williams, off waivers.

A third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Williams started eight games as a rookie before injuries tanked his 2020 season. Again, the Jets need linebacker depth and the young Williams would provide just that.

6. NY Jets target: Jordan Matthews, TE

A veteran wide-receiver-turned-tight-end, Jordan Matthews actually worked out with the Jets in late July, but ultimately re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers.

Matthews spent parts of 2019 and 2020 with the 49ers meaning he has experience with Robert Saleh, Mike LaFleur, and company. He also crossed paths on two occasions with Joe Douglas in Philadelphia.
