The New York Daily News reports the Jets have "reached out" to the Steelers about acquiring holdout unsigned franchise player Le'Veon Bell.

Per reporter Manish Mehta, the Jets have "not made a concrete offer," but they believe the Steelers are "serious" about trading their running back. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported Bell was available on Sunday. The Jets are the first team to be linked.
Sep 24 - 3:20 PM

Jets waived WR Ardarius Stewart.

Stewart is back from his two-game PED suspension but the Jets don't want him anymore. A 2017 third-rounder out of Alabama, Stewart secured six catches for 82 yards on 12 targets over 231 offensive snaps last season. He shouldn't take long to resurface.
Sep 19 - 5:10 PM

Jets worked out free agent OT Will Beatty.

ESPN originally reported Beatty worked out for the Giants but quickly corrected its mistake. Now 33, Beatty has not made an NFL start since 2014. He has just seven appearances over the past three seasons. It's hard to see how he would make anything better in New York. Beatty was part of a large group of linemen to work out on Tuesday.
Sep 18 - 5:16 PM

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets have "some interest" in Josh Gordon.

Earlier, Pro Football Talk passed along a report that the 49ers have interest in Gordon, as well. Cimini calls the Jets' interest merely doing their "due diligence," but it's notable nonetheless. In 2014, reports had the 49ers potentially trading RB Kendall Hunter and a second-round pick to Cleveland for Gordon, but owner Jimmy Haslam nixed the deal. Gordon should resurface with a team this coming week. A clear-cut favorite has yet to emerge.
Sep 16 - 5:33 PM

Free agent DT Adolphus Washington worked out for the Jets.

Washington was waived from Buffalo this week. The 2016 third-rounder wasn't a fit in Sean McDermott's scheme but should resurface in a 3-4 defense.
Sep 14 - 6:01 PM

Free agent DE/OLB John Simon has visited the Jets.

It's Simon's first-known visit since he was cut loose by the Colts. Simon should have a new home by this time next week.
Sep 6 - 6:48 PM

Free agent Roberto Aguayo worked out for the Jets.

It's a sign the Jets aren't sold on Jason Myers as their kicker. Aguayo had a strong preseason despite failing to beat out Caleb Sturgis in Los Angeles. He should resurface when a job opens up.
Sep 5 - 5:52 PM

Jets signed QB Davis Webb to their practice squad.

He will not have to move. It is not a great sign Webb was not offered more than a practice squad spot, but the Jets will reportedly pay him as if he is on the active roster.
Sep 4 - 10:32 AM

Free agent K Dan Bailey will work out for the Jets on Monday.

The Jets were planning to move ahead with Jason Myers as their kicker, but that was before Bailey became available. Bailey is coming off a down year in Dallas but has converted 88.2 percent of his career field goal attempts, good for the second-best success rate in NFL history. Even if the Jets pass on him, Bailey shouldn't be on the market for long.
Sep 2 - 8:02 PM

Free agent DE Jerry Attaochu visited the Jets Sunday.

Attaochu was recently cut by the 49ers despite signing a one-year deal with the club this offseason. Attaochu's early NFL career was derailed by injuries but he did record six sacks as a 12-game starter in 2015. He would serve as pass-rushing depth.
Sep 2 - 4:51 PM

The Jets have scheduled a workout for free agent WR Breshad Perriman.

The 26th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Perriman flopped in Baltimore due to injuries and persistent drops. He also never mastered the nuances of route running. The Jets may be setting up this tryout to add him to their emergency list. With Jermaine Kearse on the mend, Gang Green's likely Week 1 three-receiver set will be Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, and Terrelle Pryor.
Sep 2 - 2:17 PM

Patriots claimed WR Chad Hansen off waivers from the Jets.

Hansen played over 30% of the Jets' offensive snaps as a rookie last year, but he had a quiet training camp and couldn't beat out Charone Peake, among others. New England is paper thin at wideout, but neither Hansen nor fellow waiver claim Amara Darboh is a good bet to earn a role before Julian Edelman returns.
Sep 2 - 12:50 PM

Jets waived/released C Travis Swanson, K Taylor Bertolet, WR Chad Hansen, WR Tre McBride, DL Deon Simon, LB Dylan Donahue, LB Frankie Luvu, LB Lorenzo Mauldin, LB Kevin PIerre-Louis, LB Anthony Wint, S Brandon Bryant and CB Jeremy Clark.

Swanson was fighting for a depth role but evidently did not show enough. Concussions have dogged Swanson over the past two years.
Sep 1 - 8:08 PM

Jets released RB Charcandrick West.

West lasted eight days in New York. He's now been cut twice in 10 days. West figures to be one of the mainstays of the running back workout circuit this season.
Sep 1 - 8:01 PM

Jets waived TE Clive Walford.

The Jets tried to shop Walford but obviously found no takers. The former third-rounder of the Raiders is in theory a serviceable receiving option, but we've never seen it at the NFL level. He's likely running out of chances.
Sep 1 - 2:08 PM

Jets waived RB Thomas Rawls.

Rawls had the appearance of a future lead back in 2015 with the Seahawks when he led the league with his 5.6 YPC average en route to a 147-830-4 rushing line. But he ended up breaking his fibula and was never the same again. Rawls never even made a case for winning a backup job with the Jets.
Sep 1 - 1:27 PM

Jets waived OLB Lorenzo Mauldin.

The No. 82 overall pick was already on the roster bubble, but then he picked up a hamstring injury, sealing his fate. Mauldin missed all of 2017 with a back injury. He turns 26 in October.
Sep 1 - 1:14 PM

Jets released ILB Kevin Minter.

The 45th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Minter started 37 games in four years with the Cardinals before making seven starts for the Bengals last season. Minter is purely a run defender in a league that is more pass-happy than ever.
Aug 31 - 12:03 PM

Jets waived/released WR Charles Johnson, OT Antonio Garcia, DL Kendall Reyes, C Gino Gradkowski, DL Xavier Cooper, OLB David Bass, DL Mychealon Thomas, FB Dimitri Flowers, OLB Obum Gwacham, and OG Darius James.

Although this group doesn't contain surprises, it does include some notable names. Johnson formed a preseason bond with Teddy Bridgewater before Teddy was traded to the Saints. Garcia is a former Patriots day-two draft pick. Bass recorded 3.5 sacks for an anemic Jets pass rush last year.
Aug 31 - 11:45 AM

Saints acquired QB Teddy Bridgewater and a 2019 sixth-round pick from the Jets in exchange for a 2019 third-round pick.

The Jets needed to find a taker for Bridgewater with Sam Darnold ready to take the reins for Gang Green and veteran Josh McCown serving as his mentor. Bridgewater also wants to play, so the team sends him to New Orleans where he'll enter a culture that could develop him even more with the possibility of taking over under center when 39-year-old Drew Brees eventually retires. Preseason standout Taysom Hill will be the Saints' third QB, while Tom Savage is likely a goner.
