With the two most significant offseason events in the NFL Free Agency period and the 2023 NFL Draft officially in the books for the NY Jets, now is the long wait before OTAs, preseason action, and the start of the regular season. Hopefully, it goes by quickly so we can finally get football back on our television screens.
The NFL Schedule release was pretty fun across the board as now we know every single matchup for the upcoming season. It's amazing to see the Jets get so many primetime games which hopefully, will put them on the map to show that they can indeed be a playoff-contending team.
The latest Jets news has many outlets talking about expectations and of course, how many wins this team will have once all is set and done. It's also interesting to see what jersey number wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. would have had if he ended up signing with the Jets. Let's take a look at the latest Jets news from some of the top sites on the internet.

Eric Mangini: Aaron Rodgers acquisition means heat’s on Jets [Mark Cannizzaro, NY Post]
Now that future Pro Football Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers is in town, you better believe expectations will be sky-high for the Jets. Considering how much progress they showed last season, the Jets definitely need to make the NFL Playoffs in 2023 and actually win a few games to show even more progression. Of course, we all want them to make and win the Super Bowl but if anything, they need to at the very least make the postseason to consider 2023 a success.
Sports Illustrated Predicts 11-win Season for Jets after 2023 NFL Schedule Release [Ralph Ventre, Sports Illustrated]
11 wins for the Jets in 2023 is feasible considering they have Rodgers, lots of playmakers on offense, and a stellar defense. That should put them in the NFL Playoffs considering how their schedule looks with many winnable matchups. Of course, anything can happen on gameday but on paper, the Jets have a pretty decent strength of schedule.
If ex-Giants WR Odell Beckham had signed with Jets (he came close), he wanted this player’s number [Kevin Manahan, NJ.com]
Even though it would have been nice to have Beckham on the Jets, he definitely wasn't worth a contract of $15M for just a single season. Not to mention, all the drama he probably would have brought to the locker room but if he did come to Gang Green, he wanted to wear #7 as his jersey. Awe well.
