The NY Jets are gearing up for what promises to be one of the most important and exciting seasons in recent franchise history. Aaron Rodgers is back and the Jets have firmly set their sights on a run not only at the playoffs but the Super Bowl.

Of course, it's only July. We still have a long way to go before we can legitimately start discussing the Jets' postseason changes, but the NFL calendar will be picking up again in the near future.

OTAs and mandatory minicamp have come to an end, meaning that it's full steam ahead until training camp later this month. Jets fans are understandably eager for training camp and subsequently, the regular season to arrive.

Here is everything Jets fans need to know about Jets training camp this year, including dates, location, and more.

The final training camp practice of the summer is scheduled for August 22, two days before the Jets' preseason finale against the New York Giants.

Key position battles to watch during NY Jets training camp

The Jets don't have nearly as many position battles this summer as they normally do, likely a product of the work Joe Douglas and company have done to improve the roster. There are still a few competitions to keep an eye on, however.

  • RB2: Braelon Allen vs. Isaiah Davis vs. Israel Abanikanda
  • WR3: Malachi Corley vs. Xavier Gipson
  • Safety: Tony Adams vs. Chuck Clark vs. Ashtyn Davis

The battle for the primary backup running back job behind Breece Hall is already heating up, with rookies Braelon Allen and Isaiah Davis making waves this spring. Israel Abanikanda is fighting an uphill battle to not only earn a role but even make the 53-man roster.

Most expect rookie wide receiver Malachi Corley to be the Jets' third wide receiver alongside Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams to start the season, but Xavier Gipson has the early edge coming out of the spring. Don't be shocked if Gipson is the Jets' starting slot receiver come Week 1.

The Jets will also be hosting an open competition at the safety position. Tony Adams and Chuck Clark are the presumed starters, but Ashtyn Davis could push for an advanced role with a strong summer. Veteran cornerback-convert Isaiah Oliver is also in the mix.

How to watch NY Jets training camp

The Jets will occasionally stream videos from their training camp facility during the summer, but the best way to watch Jets training camp is by simply attending the events for free.
