In the latest episode of The Jet Press Podcast, Justin Fried and Mike Luciano break down every NY Jets unrestricted free agent and analyze whether or not they should be re-signed this offseason.
The first notable player discussed was former first-round pick Mekhi Becton. Becton stayed healthy in 2023, but his performance on the field left a lot to be desired. Justin and Mike both agreed that it's unlikely Becton will be back with the team in 2024.
The same is true for aging veterans such as Duane Brown, Al Woods, and Randall Cobb. Brown and Woods could opt to retire, and although the Aaron Rodgers factor means you can never rule out Cobb returning, the safe bet is to assume he's gone as well.
Three notable Jets safeties are slated to be free agents this offseason in Jordan Whitehead, Ashtyn Davis, and Chuck Clark. Whitehead's struggles in 2023 could mean the Jets go in a different direction, but Davis and even Clark might deserve another contract.
What about the team's special teams standouts? Greg Zuerlein, Thomas Morstead, and Justin Hardee will all be free agents this offseason. The Jets should be interested in bringing each of them back, but will they? Justin has some hesitations about Zuerlein.
The most notable Jets free agent this offseason is undoubtedly Bryce Huff. Both Justin and Mike agree that re-signing Huff is the best course of action, but is that the route the Jets will take? Once again, Justin and Mike have their doubts.
