In the latest episode of The Jet Press Podcast, Justin Fried and Mike Luciano discuss the latest with Quinnen Williams' contract, analyze the NY Jets' 2023 schedule, and much more.

Justin returned from his absence last week, and he and Mike immediately discussed the Jets' 2023 schedule. The first six games present one of the toughest challenges that any team will face this season.

A gauntlet of an opening month-plus sets the tone for the Jets' season ahead of their bye in Week 7. Justin and Mike discussed that brutal six-game stretch to start the year and offered predictions for the team's record in 2023.

The next topic of discussion was Quinnen Williams and the latest with his ongoing contract dispute. Williams clearly isn't happy with the Jets, and Justin and Mike talked about the level of concern Jets fans should have.

When will the Jets extend Williams? What might his market value be? Does it benefit anyone to continue to drag the situation out? All of this was discussed.

Then there's linebacker Kwon Alexander, who visited with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday. If Alexander walks in free agency, what should the Jets do to replace him? Do they roll with the young linebackers on the roster or look to sign a veteran?

The Jets are hoping to see Breece Hall make a return to full health this season, but it's unclear if he will be ready for Week 1. Justin and Mike discuss their confidence level in Hall and the Jets' running back room entering 2023.

Finally, Justin and Mike took a closer look at the Jets' undrafted free-agent class. Which UDFAs have the best chance to stick around on the 53-man roster? Safety Trey Dean and wide receiver Xavier Gipson were two names highlighted.
