Sam Darnold received a majority of reps at camp Sunday.

Darnold's late start to camp seems like a thing of the past following his stellar debut (13-of-18 for 96 yards and one score) in the Jets' preseason opener. He was the third play-caller to take the field Friday, but received more practice reps than either Josh McCown or Teddy Bridgewater Sunday. His playing time against Washington Thursday could be a nod to where he stands as New York's Week 1 starter.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the major issue between the Jets and Sam Darnold is a default language pertaining to guaranteed money in his contract.

Under the Jets' proposal, the entirety of Darnold's $30 million guarantee will void if he's fined by the league for discipline or conduct. In the case of rookies Baker Mayfield and Josh Allen, league discipline would merely result in a suspension, not a fine. Cimini cites that in the last 10 drafts, no top-3 pick had voidables tied to league fines. It would still be a surprise if Darnold is not under center when the season starts.

Jets waived TE Bucky Hodges.

That clears a roster spot for RB George Atkinson. A sixth-round pick of the Vikings last year, Hodges has yet to play an NFL snap.
Jul 29 - 10:56 AM

The Jets worked out free agent Tion Green.

It's the first interest in Green since he was waived from Detroit in May. The Jets also visited with Alfred Morris and Orleans Darkwa as they look to replace Eli McGuire.
Jul 28 - 7:30 PM

Free agent RB Orleans Darkwa visited the Jets.

Darkwa has been making the rounds — visiting Buffalo earlier this week. He's scheduled to meet the Colts next.
Jul 28 - 4:35 PM

Free agent Alfred Morris visited the Jets.

Morris went the entire offseason without any interest. He had a solid 2017 filling in during Ezekiel Elliott's suspension but doesn't offer much as a limited early-down back. Morris would be another veteran option for the Jets' committee with Eli McGuire (foot surgery) likely to miss extended time. Free agent Orleans Darkwa also visited the Jets.
Jul 28 - 4:00 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Ravens are "getting more aggressive" with their interest in free agent CB Bashaud Breeland and want to visit with him Friday.

Anderson adds the Jets have expressed interest all week as well. Breeland is in Cleveland visiting the Browns today, and the Ravens want him to come directly to Baltimore this evening. Breeland has drawn a ton of interest this week and indications had been that he planned to make a decision Saturday.

Darrelle Revis will sign a one-day contract to officially retire as a Jet on Tuesday.

Revis won a Super Bowl with New England and also spent a year each with Tampa Bay and Kansas City, but he'll always be most remembered for his time with the Jets. The former Pitt Panther was so feared during his prime that commentators called his side of the field "Revis Island." Revis logged 25 interceptions during his eight-year tenure with the Jets, which also included five Pro Bowl nods. The 33-year-old will be enshrined in Canton someday.
Jul 20 - 3:45 PM

Former Jets, Bucs, Patriots, and Chiefs CB Darrelle Revis announced his retirement from the NFL after 11 seasons.

The former No. 14 overall pick in the 2007 draft, Revis was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and four-time first-team All-Pro pick. Revis turned 33 last weekend and spent eight seasons with the Jets across two stints and spent one each with the Bucs, Patriots, and Chiefs, winning Super Bowl 49 with New England. Revis picked off 29 career passes, but quarterbacks were so afraid to throw at "Revis Island" during his initial six-year stint with the Jets. He's a lock for the Hall of Fame and will likely see his name in the Jets' Ring of Honor.

Jets waived WR Devin Smith.

The No. 37 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Smith tore his ACL late in his rookie season, and then tore it again in April 2017. He was held out of the Jets' offseason program, so it's possible the move will be designated "waived/injured" and Smith will eventually be released with an injury settlement. A true burner and deep threat before the injuries set in, 26-year-old Smith is going to have trouble getting his career back on track.
Jul 16 - 1:25 PM

Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander visited with the Jets.

The Saints, Colts, and Kansas City also met with him. It confirms Alexander's league wide interest after 26 teams attended his Pro Day. Alexander (6'2/195) has starting traits but was suspended multiple times at Virginia Tech and his measurables (4.6 forty) would have ranked at the bottom of this year's class. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Alexander a third-round supplemental grade.

Raiders acquired QB Christian Hackenberg from the Jets in exchange for a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick.

A move too beautiful for words. Mere hours after criticizing the Jets' coaching staff for failing to fix his terrible mechanics, Hackenberg has been acquired by back-to-the-future coach Jon Gruden. Even in Gruden's prehistoric environment, Hackenberg will be facing almost impossible odds of making the roster, as evidenced by the Jets' "compensation." He starts out behind Derek Carr, E.J. Manuel and Connor Cook on the depth chart. One of the biggest draft reaches in recent memory — Hackenberg never looked like a legitimate prospect at Penn State before the Jets selected him with the No. 51 overall pick in 2016 — Hack is going to need a miracle to prolong his NFL career beyond 2018.
May 22 - 4:33 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports free agent S Kenny Vaccaro previously visited the Dolphins and also has a visit lined up with the Jets.

This is on top of Vaccaro's previously-reported visit with the Colts that is taking place Monday night. The Jets will be up next should be leave Indy without a contract. The safety market is heating up after two months of a standstill. There's no reason Vaccaro, 27, should still be on the market.
May 14 - 6:36 PM

Free agent OT Byron Bell is working out for the Jets on Monday.

Bell has started 74 games in the NFL including two at left tackle for the Cowboys last season, but he has never been an above-average option. The Jets could use some help at right tackle, but Bell is better suited as a backup.
May 14 - 9:49 AM

Dolphins claimed QB Bryce Petty off waivers from the Jets.

Petty was dumped by the Jets after they drafted Sam Darnold. He lands in a good spot in Miami, with only Brock Osweiler and David Fales behind Ryan Tannehill. Owed a non-guaranteed $705K salary, Petty isn't a lock to make it past the Dolphins' final cuts.
May 4 - 4:50 PM

Jets waived QB Bryce Petty.

The Jets were always going to cut a quarterback after drafting Sam Darnold with the No. 3 overall pick, and Petty was always the most likely to go. A fourth-round pick in 2015, Petty started seven games for the Jets over the last two seasons, compiling 1,353 yards and four touchdowns against 10 interceptions. He is extremely unlikely to develop into a viable starter, but he could be scooped up by a quarterback-needy team on waivers.
May 3 - 12:47 PM

Jets acquired DE Henry Anderson from the Colts in exchange for the No. 235 pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Anderson's season was cut short last year following a laryngeal fracture he suffered in November. He recorded 22 tackles, with two sacks and one forced fumble prior to being placed on injured reserve. Going on 27, Anderson will be a tremendous help in the trenches for the Jets as he finished with PFF's No. 15 run-stopping grade out of 44 qualifiers at defensive tackle last season.
Apr 28 - 3:38 PM

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini expects the Jets to decide between Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen at the No. 3 overall pick.

Conventional pre-draft wisdom is that the Jets are zeroed in on Mayfield, but Cimini passes along "some support" for Rosen inside the organization. The Jets likely have similar grades on Mayfield, Rosen, and Sam Darnold, explaining why they were comfortable moving up to No. 3 in the draft. They'll simply take whichever quarterback falls. With Darnold expected to be drafted at No. 1 and Saquon Barkley favored to go to the Giants at No. 2, Gang Green's decision will likely come down to Mayfield-versus-Rosen.
Apr 23 - 5:16 PM

Free agent OLB Lamarr Houston will work out for the Jets on Monday.

DT Jay Bromley, DT Chris Jones, DT Tyrunn Walker, and DL Lavar Edwards are also working out for the Jets on Monday. Houston worked out for the Raiders earlier this month, but that has been his only known interest. Houston recorded five sacks in stints with the Texans and Bears last season.
Apr 23 - 8:56 AM

Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he would start a rookie quarterback in 2018 if necessary.

"It depends on the progress," Bowles said. "At the end of training camp, if you’re a rookie and you are where we need you to be, you play." Bowles informed Josh McCown he'll be the team's starter back in March, but that was before the Jets traded up to No. 3 with the sole intent of drafting a franchise quarterback. ESPN's Rich Cimini recently reported the Jets have narrowed their choices to Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield and UCLA QB Josh Rosen.
