Jets signed TE Kellen Davis, formerly of the Lions, to a one-year, $950,000 contract.

Davis was brought on for blocking purposes. He won't take any targets away from Jace Amaro or Jeff Cumberland. When the roster trims down to 53 players at the end of training camp, there's a chance Davis won't be on it.

Free agent TE Kellen Davis will visit the Jets.

Davis isn't much of a receiver, but his towering size (6'7/265) has made him a useful blocker in the past. Even if the Jets sign him, he'd be no lock to make it out of camp. Jace Amaro should be the Jets' featured tight end.

PFT's Mike Florio reports the Jets have filed tampering charges against the Patriots after owner Robert Kraft talked about Darrelle Revis on Tuesday.

It's just a sarcastic jab back at the Patriots from the Jets after New England initially filed tampering charges against Gang Green when Jets owner Woody Johnson made comments about Revis while he was still under contract with the Patriots earlier this month. Don't expect anything to come of the charges.

Jets agreed to terms with DE Stephen Bowen, formerly of the Redskins.

Limited to eight games by a knee injury last season, Bowen played 243 largely-ineffective snaps. He notched zero sacks, and has only one over the past three seasons. He's primarily a run stopper. One week shy of his 31st birthday, Bowen is a pure depth signing for Gang Green, and won't be assured of a spot on the 53-man roster.

Jets signed OT Corey Hilliard.

Hilliard is an eight-year veteran that missed most of last season with a Lisfranc injury. Much like last week's James Brewer signing, Hilliard will compete for a depth role.

Coach Todd Bowles said Geno Smith will get the initial first-team reps at training camp.

This assumes the Jets don't select a quarterback high in the draft. It also could have something to do with Ryan Fitzpatrick's leg injury. Regardless, it's clear that Bowles is expecting a competition come camp. "I'm not saying he’s not going to be the quarterback or that he is going to be the quarterback," Bowles said about Geno.

Jets coach Todd Bowles confirmed Darrelle Revis will do some shadowing this season.

Under Bill Belichick, it was a bit tricky to pinpoint which receivers would run routes against Revis. It should be easier under Bowles, who used Patrick Peterson as a shadow corner in Arizona. "Some games [Revis] will be left and right. Some games he'll match up (vs. best WR)."

When asked about Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, Jets owner Woody Johnson said Geno Smith is "probably way ahead of him at this point."

It's important to note that Johnson is a businessman whose football IQ is average at best. Simply put, Smith's first two seasons were a disaster. He improved only marginally last season after finishing dead-last in passer rating as a rookie in 2013. Smith should fare better in Chan Gailey's spread scheme, but that doesn't mean the Jets shouldn't be trying to address the quarterback position. We suspect Ryan Fitzpatrick would beat out Geno in a camp battle.

Only $7 million of Antonio Cromartie's $32 million contract with the Jets is guaranteed.

The guaranteed money comes in the form of a $5 million 2015 base salary and $2 million 2015 roster bonus. After that, the Jets can cut him at any point without any financial ramifications. It should keep the talented yet inconsistent Cromartie highly motivated.

Jets signed DL Kevin Vickerson to a one-year contract.

A situational run stopper, Vickerson appeared in 15 games (175 snaps) with Kansas City last year. He'll provide a veteran option behind Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson. With the Jets expected to be multiple under HC Todd Bowles, Vickerson should also see snaps on the interior line.
Mar 20 - 6:02 PM

When asked about Muhammad Wilkerson's contract status, Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said, "we definitely want to keep him in the organization."

The Jets opened talks with Wilkerson's agent at the Combine last month. Despite mutual interest, Maccagnan said there's no timetable for getting a deal done. According to, Wilkerson's next deal could cost the Jets close to $40 million guaranteed. Wilkerson is entering the final year of his rookie deal.
Mar 20 - 8:34 AM

Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) will be ready for training camp, though he'll be limited in OTAs.

Geno Smith and Matt Simms will get more looks during OTAs. While GM Mike Maccagnan insists the Jets' quarterback competition will be a "competitive environment," the job is really Fitzpatrick's to lose. Whoever wins the job will have two rock solid receiving options in Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Mar 19 - 12:03 PM

Jets signed G/T James Brewer, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract.

The former fourth-round pick never amounted to anything with the Giants, making just eight starts when several players in front of him got hurt. He'll compete for a job as a versatile reserve for Gang Green.
Mar 19 - 11:41 AM

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan wouldn't guarantee CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') being ready for the start of the season.

Milliner tore his Achilles' in October and may start the season on reserve/PUP, sidelining him the first six weeks. The former No. 9 overall pick has a lengthy injury history and will be behind the eight ball trying to learn coach Todd Bowles' new defense. Milliner is no higher than the No. 4 corner on the depth chart.
Mar 19 - 11:09 AM

Free agent OT Corey Hilliard will visit the Jets.

Hilliard missed most of last season after suffering a Lisfranc injury in Week 1. An eight-year veteran, Hilliard is a competent swing tackle when healthy. His next contract will likely be a one-year deal.
