Jets signed RG Brian Winters to a four-year extension through 2020.

The deal is reportedly worth around $8 million per year. Winters was set to hit free agency this spring, but the Jets locked him up before he could get to the open market. Winters finished the season on injured reserve because of a torn rotator cuff, but he has been a solid starter at right guard for the better part of the last two seasons after struggling on the left side early in his career. After undergoing shoulder surgery in late December, Winters may not be ready for training camp.

Jets OC candidate Eric Studesville has decided to stay with the Broncos.

Studesville had an interview with coach Todd Bowles this week, but he has decided to stay in Denver. It is a bit embarrassing Studesville would rather coach the Broncos' running backs than coordinate the Jets' offense, but perhaps the Jets made it clear he was not getting the job after the interview. ESPN's Rich Cimini believes New York is interested in Chiefs co-OC Matt Nagy.

The Jets are interviewing Broncos RBs coach Eric Studesville for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

A Broncos assistant coaching running backs since 2010, Studesville coordinated the Bills' offense from 2004-08. He'd be a decidedly low-wattage hire for a team with all sorts of issues on offense.

Jets signed WR Myles White, FB Julian Howsare, and WR Deshon Foxx to reserve/future contracts.

These are all nondescript signings. Howsare made the Jets out of preseason last year, but was cut after two games.

Speaking to the New York Daily News, a Jets source says second-round rookie Christian Hackenberg will "never make it."

"Never," the source emphasized. Hackenberg was a topic of discussion on Thursday after owner Woody Johnson called him a "prospect." Reporter Manish Mehta says he recently asked an anonymous Jets starter if Hackenberg was worth a second-round pick and received a curt "no" in reply. The fact that Hackenberg couldn't get on the field in a lost year where Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith and Bryce Petty were all either injured or ineffective — usually at the same time — says all there is to know about Hack's NFL future.

Speaking Thursday, Jets owner Woody Johnson hinted the team will be moving on from Darrelle Revis.

"He's going in the Hall-of-Fame, there's no question," Johnson said, stalling. "He's one of the best players ever to put on a Jets uniform. ... It wasn't his best year, but a lot of guys didn't have good years. My hat's off to Darrelle. Great career." Unless Revis is willing to play for a bargain price — which is not his style — a divorce is looking more and more likely.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said Brandon Marshall is "still a very good player."

"I don't think he declined significantly," Maccagnan added. The general manager will have a tough decision to make this offseason on Marshall, who is coming off a down season and seems to be something of a dividing force in the locker room. He is owned a relatively small $7.5 million salary next season, however, so Maccagnan could keep Marshall around if he really thinks he is "still a very good player."

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said he likes Christian Hackenberg "as a prospect."

It might be better than being told someone likes you "as a friend," but not by much. It is pretty clear the Jets are nowhere near trusting last year's second-round pick with their offense, meaning they will have to go find another veteran stopgap for next season. As for the quarterback search, Maccagnan said, "All options are on the table."
Jan 5 - 12:12 PM

Jets signed DE Kenny Anunike, DL Clause Pelon, WR Darius Jennings, FB Chris Swain and TE Jason Vander Laan to reserve/future contracts.

A third-year UDFA, Anunike made three appearances for the Broncos in 2015. Turning 27 in May, he's an unlikely candidate for the 53-man roster.

Brandon Marshall intimated he'd take a pay cut to remain with the Jets in 2017.

Coming off his worst season since his rookie year, Marshall — who turns 33 in March — is owed $7.5 million in 2017. "I'll play for free. My bills are paid," Marshall said of a potential cut. Typically, tunes like that change once the new league year actually rolls around.

Matt Forte underwent arthroscopic knee surgery for his torn meniscus last Friday.

It's a minor operation. It's unclear if Forte will also require shoulder surgery. Now 31, Forte averaged 3.72 yards per carry in his first season as a Jet, his lowest mark since 2009. He's signed for $4 million in 2017. The Jets could seek an adjustment, but Forte will likely remain in New York.
Jan 2 - 1:18 PM

Jets RT Breno Giacomini will undergo back surgery Wednesday.

The operation will shave down a herniated disc in Giacomini's back. The procedure carries a four-month recovery, but the Jets will likely take it easy with Giacomini during the offseason program. The right tackle should be ready for training camp.

Brandon Marshall said he is "confident" he is still an "elite receiver."

That may be the case, but Marshall did not show it on the field this season. That said, he was hampered by injuries all year, and the quarterback situation in New York was among the worst in the league. Marshall is owed a reasonable $7.5 million in the final year of his deal in 2017, but it is possible the Jets decide to move on. Marshall will be 33 in March, but he says he wants to play into his late 30s.
Jan 2 - 10:35 AM

Darrelle Revis said he is willing to move to safety if it helps "the team win games."

"This offseason, there will be a lot of thinking what my future is and what I can do to best help the team win games," Revis said. "If that means changing my position to help the team win games, that's fine." Revis is not going to be back with the Jets at his current $15.333 million cap hit, but perhaps the two sides can work out a contract restructure to keep the future Hall of Famer in town. Only 31, Revis could potentially extend his career several years with a switch to safety. For what it's worth, coach Todd Bowles "thinks" Revis can still play corner.

Quincy Enunwa nabbed five-of-eight targets for 81 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Bills.

He'll finish the year with a team-high 857 yards on 58 catches. Enunwa played a bigger role than expected this year largely due to Eric Decker’s season-ending shoulder injury. He topped 90 yards three times with his best game coming against New England in Week 12. Considering how poorly the Jets fared at quarterback this year, the fact that Enunwa was even remotely productive is a minor miracle. His target share could be even larger next year if the Jets move on from Brandon Marshall, which seems likely.
