NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes wrote first-round S Jamal Adams was "arguably the best player" during the Jets' offseason workouts.

The New York Post's Brian Costello recently said Adams had the most impressive spring of any Jets rookie since Sheldon Richardson while CB Morris Claiborne called him "unbelievable." The roster is going to take some time to rebuild, but early indications are the Jets landed a good one with the No. 6 overall pick.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes expects Matt Forte to be the Jets' "offensive workhorse" this season.

Color us skeptical. Most talk around the team this offseason has been hinting at a changing of the guard at running back for the rebuilding Jets, with Bilal Powell becoming the 1A as Forte takes a back seat as the 1B. Hughes doesn't believe that to be the case and expects Powell to be the "complement" to Forte. Nothing is settled in this backfield. It's a situation to monitor closely this summer.

Jets RBs coach Stump Mitchell has been very impressed with sixth-round RB Elijah McGuire.

"I like everything (about him)," Mitchell said. "He's got great hands. As a third-down back or simply a back, he can catch the ball extremely well. He has good vision, and a good ability to make cuts. I like him. He's a student of the game." McGuire is the heavy favorite to open as the Jets' No. 3 back.

Jets owner Woody Johnson's brother Christopher is expected to take over the day-to-day operations of the team if Woody is confirmed as Ambassador of the United States to the Court of St James's.

In the words of the team, Christopher will "directly oversee all day-to-day team operations." Things are a little acrimonious in the United States Senate right now — in case you hadn't heard — but Johnson will almost certainly be confirmed as ambassador. In theory, he should have the job until at least 2021, but ambassadors don't always remain the entire term. Former Steelers owner Dan Rooney spent only three years as Barack Obama's ambassador to Ireland. Johnson's absence should have little-to-zero effect on the team.

Jets owner Woody Johnson has been officially nominated to be the United States' ambassador to the United Kingdom.

The move had been rumored since January. It had been delayed for reasons unknown by president Donald Trump. It isn't uncharted territory for a 21st century NFL owner, as Johnson will join the late, great Dan Rooney as a United States ambassador. Rooney was Barack Obama's ambassador to Ireland from 2009-12. It's unclear how the appointment will affect Johnson's football duties. Rooney remained involved with the Steelers during his time in Ireland. Ambassador of the United States to the Court of St James's is an important position. It's unclear what makes Johnson qualified.

Jets OLB Lorenzo Mauldin has been charged with misdemeanor assault.

The charges stem from Mauldin's April nightclub altercation. Mauldin is accused of beating a man for spilling champagne on him. His court appearance is scheduled for August 16.

Jets signed WR Marquess Wilson, formerly of the Bears.

Wilson was never short on upside in Chicago, but he struggled with injuries throughout his four-year run including the broken left foot which ended his 2016 season. Despite those injuries, Wilson is a good, low-cost gamble for a team with serious questions at receiver.

The New York Post said first-round S Jamal Adams looked like the "real deal" at minicamp and OTAs.

Beat writer Brian Costello said Adams had the most impressive spring of any Jets rookie since Sheldon Richardson in 2013. Adams flashed playmaking ability by breaking up "plenty of passes" and came away with a few picks. The sixth overall pick is penciled in as New York's starting strong safety.

Brian Costello of the New York Post doesn't think it's a "sure thing" that Josh McCown will start Week 1.

It's the second time in three days a Jets reporter has expressed skepticism of McCown after ESPN's Rich Cimini said Friday that the perceived gap between McCown and Christian Hackenberg "isn't as wide as we thought." Given reports of Hackenberg hitting unsuspecting reporters with errant passes at OTAs, you have to wonder just how badly McCown must be playing for Hackenberg to gain ground on him. The same goes for Bryce Petty, who has sunk to third on the depth chart. In addition to having the league's worst quarterback situation, the Jets may have the league's thinnest receiving corps. This is shaping up to be a train wreck year in East Rutherford.

Jets RG Brian Winters (shoulder) was held out of OTAs.

Winters is recovering from December surgery. There hasn’t been much concern over his training camp status. One of the Jets’ building blocks, Winters will make $8 million in his first season of a four-year extension.

The Jets limited LT Kelvin Beachum (knee) during offseason workouts.

Beachum is being moved slowly after playing at less than 100 percent last year. It sounds like he should be full go for training camp. The Jets are counting on a bounceback 2017 from Beachum.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini expects the Jets' third receiver to be Charone Peake.

Behind starters Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson, there is a battle for the third spot between Peake and rookies ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen. A 2016 seventh-round pick, Peake managed 186 yards on 35 targets (5.31 YPT) as a rookie. Stewart (thumb, groin) had been considered the favorite, but he missed all of spring practices and wouldn't commit to being ready for training camp. Hansen is a fourth-round rookie. The Jets' No. 3 receiver isn't exactly a fantasy-producing role no matter who wins the job.

According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, the Jets' quarterback gap "isn't as wide as we thought."

Per Cimini, Christian Hackenberg has performed "a little better than expected" while Josh McCown "wasn't quite as sharp as anticipated" at the team's offseason practices. McCown is still in the driver's seat to start Week 1 but Cimini wouldn't characterize his lead as "insurmountable." Through minicamp, Bryce Petty finds himself a distant third on the team's QB depth chart.

Jets rookie WR ArDarius Stewart (thumb, groin) wouldn't commit to being ready for the start of training camp.

"If I am, I am. If I’m not, I’m not. Hopefully, I am," Stewart said. He recently underwent two separate surgeries on his thumb and groin and missed all of OTAs and minicamp. Stewart is already way behind and can't afford to miss anymore practice reps. Chad Hansen is now the favorite for No. 3 duties.

Jets ILB Demario Davis slashed his salary from $3.7 million to $900,000 after his trade from Cleveland.

He's going from a $3.7 million player to a $1 million player, including a $100,000 signing bonus. Davis can earn another $1.225 million in incentives, but it's a hefty pay cut. The Jets were so desperate to get rid of S Calvin Pryor that they may have released Davis had he not accepted the pay reduction.
