Jets signed first-round S Jamal Adams to a four-year, $22.3 million contract.

His contract includes a $14.3 million signing bonus as well as a fifth-year team option for 2021. The No. 6 overall pick drew raves for his performance in spring practice. An all-over-the-field playmaker at LSU, Adams both stamped out the run and stood out in coverage. He has the profile to make an instant impact at the back-end of a rebuilding defense.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes reports the Jets are "still looking to trade" Sheldon Richardson.

As they undoubtedly will until the trade deadline, but it is not a given they will be able to find a buyer. ESPN's Rich Cimini reported there was "nothing cooking" in trade talks in early June. Richardson is owed $8.1 million in the final year of his deal.

NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said the league is still reviewing an incident between Jets LB Darron Lee and his girlfriend at a music festival in June.

A video of the incident showed Lee being forcibly restrained by teammate Leonard Williams, but there is not any indication the incident became physical. Unless that changes, nothing will come of this. The Jets have already said they will not discipline the linebacker.

The New York Post doesn’t consider Robby Anderson a lock to keep the No. 2 receiver job.

Anderson has a clear path to targets with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker gone, but is trending in the wrong direction after a rough offseason. He’s facing a potential suspension for his May arrest but likely won’t be disciplined until 2018. The Jets want Anderson to be a "more complete receiver" and a better route runner. Rookie ArDarius Stewart is a threat to overtake Anderson.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini lists second-year CB Juston Burris as a projected starter heading into training camp.

Morris Claiborne and Buster Skrine figure to be the corners in base sets, but Burris has the edge over Marcus Williams in nickel packages. Burris has great size at 6'/212 and has experience covering the slot and boundary from his college days. He played just 178 defensive snaps as a fourth-round rookie last year, but DC Kacy Rodgers admitted this spring, in hindsight, that was a mistake.

Darryl Slater of NJ Advance Media named Demario Davis as a leading candidate to replace David Harris at inside linebacker.

Davis hasn't done much to warrant starter status, but the Jets don't have a lot of other options. Darron Lee is a superior talent, but coach Todd Bowles believes he's better suited for the weak side. Davis, who is now in his second stint with the Jets, earned PFF's No. 43 grade out of 57 inside linebackers in 2016. The 28-year-old is entering a contract year.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini believes it's not a "done deal" that Josh McCown is the Jets' Week 1 starter.

The New York Post shared a similar sentiment in mid-June, and it's not the first time Cimini has questioned if McCown will be the starter. A 38-year-old journeyman who is always hurt and only sporadically effective, McCown certainly shouldn't be gifted starting duties. The problem is the ineptness of the young quarterbacks behind him. Christian Hackenberg isn't a legitimate NFL prospect and Bryce Petty blurs the line between No. 2 and 3. McCown is the favorite, but won't come close to making 16 starts.

The New York Post's Brian Costello doesn't consider NT Steve McLendon a lock to make the Jets' final 53-man roster.

As Costello notes, it has less to do with McLendon and more to do with the Jets' purge of veterans. McLendon's $2.75 million salary isn't guaranteed, and he's 31. Gang Green liked what it saw from youngster NT Deon Simon at the end of last season and could move forward with him. McLendon is a replacement-level player.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Jets are happy with Christian Hackenberg's progress as he attempts to overhaul his footwork.

Hackenberg has been working with QBs coach Jeremy Bates to clean up some of his issues, and while he is not consistent enough yet, he is making progress. ESPN's Rich Cimini reported Hackenberg was "a little better than expected" in the offseason program while Josh McCown "wasn't quite as sharp as anticipated." That at least cracks the door for Hackenberg to win the starting job in camp, but it is still very likely McCown is under center come Week 1. Even so, the safe money is on Hackenberg making starts at some point this year.

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.
Jun 26 - 8:36 AM

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.
