Former Jets C Nick Mangold announced his retirement after 11 seasons in the NFL.

Released by the Jets following the 2016 season, Mangold flirted with the Ravens last year, but he ultimately spent the season on the sidelines. Now 34 and coming off a year out of the league, Mangold is calling it quits. One of the best centers in the league during his prime, Mangold earned two All-Pro nods (2009 and 10) and went to seven Pro Bowls. He spent all of his 11 seasons with the Jets, who selected him with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2006 draft.
Apr 17 - 8:27 AM

Jets re-signed restricted free agents TE Neal Sterling and S Rontez Miles to one-year, $1.9 million contracts.

Both RFAs were tendered at the original-pick level. Sterling has converted to tight end after starring as a wide receiver at Monmouth. In a poor Jets tight end corps, Sterling should have a legitimate shot at carving out snaps in sub-packages. Miles has been a mainstay on the Jets' special teams.
Apr 16 - 4:49 PM

Chargers waived K Nick Rose.

Rose appeared in two games for Los Angeles late last season, converting just 1-of-3 field goal attempts and 5-of-6 extra points. With Rose gone, Roberto Aguayo and Caleb Sturgis are left to compete for the starting kicker job in training camp.
Apr 13 - 4:14 PM

Jets exercised DE Leonard Williams' 2019 fifth-year option.

No-brainer. The No. 6 overall pick in the 2015 draft, Williams has outlasted Sheldon Richardson and Muhammad Wilkerson in New York and is the centerpiece of the Jets' defense. Williams was Pro Football Focus' No. 10-ranked 3-4 end last season, grading out well above average in both the run and pass games. He has 12 sacks through three seasons and should land a big extension.
Apr 11 - 11:12 AM

Jets signed ILB Kevin Minter and WR Charles Johnson.

Minter should have a chance to compete for early-down snaps at inside linebacker for the Jets. He is a non-factor on passing downs. Johnson spent last season on injured reserve with a knee issue. He will slide onto the end of a deep Jets wideout depth chart.
Apr 9 - 3:54 PM

Jets re-signed OT Brent Qvale.

A restricted free agent, Qvale was tendered at the lowest possible level. He'll make $1.9 million in 2018. Qvale made six spots starts last year and will return in a swing role.
Apr 6 - 5:05 PM

Jets re-signed OG Dakota Dozier.

The Jets also re-signed OT Brent Qvale, who had been a restricted free agent. Dozier appeared in seven games at right guard including three starts last season. He's just a depth signing.
Apr 6 - 3:56 PM

Jets re-signed WR Quincy Enunwa to a one-year, $2.914 million contract.

Enunwa was a restricted free agent after missing all of last season to repair a bulging disc in his neck. He now has full range of motion and will be eased into offseason activities, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Jets have Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, and Terrelle Pryor all competing with Enunwa.
Apr 4 - 11:52 AM

Jets signed TE Bucky Hodges.

The Jets are taking fliers in free agency after losing Austin Seferian-Jenkins to the Jaguars. The No. 201 overall pick of last year's draft by the Vikings, Hodges made zero Sunday appearances as a rookie.
Apr 3 - 4:20 PM

Andy Slater of WINZ reports felony charges against Robby Anderson have been dropped.

Arrested for an incident in January, Anderson was originally charged with harm to a public servant/family, reckless driving, eluding police, and resisting arrest. All but the misdemeanor reckless driving charge were dropped because of "insufficient evidence." It is a fantastic development for Anderson, but it does not change the fact he has had two run-ins with the law in as many offseasons. He needs to stay on the straight and narrow moving forward.
Apr 3 - 11:01 AM

Jets signed C Travis Swanson, formerly of the Lions.

The Jets and Lions have officially completed their center swap after Wesley Johnson signed with Detroit last week. Swanson is probably the better player of the two, but concussion issues have ended each of his last two seasons. He should serve as depth behind fellow new signing Spencer Long.
Apr 3 - 10:51 AM

Jets claimed TE Clive Walford off waivers from the Raiders.

The 68th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Walford disappointed in three seasons with the Raiders, managing reception totals of 33 and 28 his first two years before losing his job to Jared Cook in 2017 and catching nine balls. Nevertheless, he's a big addition for the Jets, whose tight end depth chart was previously topped by blocker Eric Tomlinson and 2017 late-round pick Jordan Leggett.
Apr 2 - 4:50 PM

Jets signed RB Thomas Rawls, formerly of the Seahawks.

Rawls burst onto the scene with an impressive rookie season in 2015 but has been hampered by injuries and ineffectiveness since then. The 24-year-old isn't a lock to make the team out of training camp but if Rawls does crack the 53-man roster, he'll likely be fighting for scraps behind Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell.
Mar 30 - 3:18 PM

Free agent C Travis Swanson visited the Jets on Friday.

It's his first known visit. Swanson struggled over 11 starts for the Lions last season, earning PFF's No. 31 grade among 38 qualified centers. He'd give the Jets some depth behind starter Spencer Long.
Mar 30 - 3:02 PM

Free agent RB Thomas Rawls is visiting the Jets on Thursday.

It's the second visit for Rawls after he left Kansas City without a deal. Injuries have derailed Rawls the last two seasons, limiting him to just 10 starts. He would be an early-down flyer with the Jets.
