Ifeadi Odenigbo, DE, NY Jets

The Jets signed veteran edge rusher Ifeadi Odenigbo in July of last year, but he suffered an injury in the summer and was placed on the IR less than a month later. He turns 30 years old in April and is little more than training camp fodder if brought back.

Prediction: Not re-signed

Brett Rypien, QB, NY Jets

The only member of the Jets' quarterback carousel not to appear in a game for the team in 2023, Brett Rypien was signed off the Seattle Seahawks practice squad in December following the release of Tim Boyle.

Rypien has experience with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, and there's an outside chance he's brought back to compete for a practice squad spot. The safe bet is to assume he walks in free agency, however.

Prediction: Not re-signed

Trevor Siemian, QB, NY Jets

Jets fans didn't expect to see well-traveled NFL veteran Trevor Siemian start three games for their favorite team in 2023, but that's exactly what they got. Siemian was the first quarterback the Jets signed after the Aaron Rodgers injury.

The former Denver Broncos draft pick got his opportunity after Zach Wilson was benched and Tim Boyle was released. The Jets need a better backup QB option next season.

Prediction: Not re-signed

Solomon Thomas, DT, NY Jets

Solomon Thomas was another member of the Jets' defensive line who quietly had a productive season. Thomas recorded a career-high five sacks in 17 games, playing 43 percent of the team's defensive snaps.

The former San Francisco 49ers top draft pick is a Robert Saleh favorite and is well-respected in the Jets' locker room. He feels like a safe bet to be back in 2024.

Prediction: Re-signed
