New York Jets Strategy and Personnel 2009-02-21


New York Jets Strategy and Personnel 2009-02-21
--TE Chris Baker was released by the Jets, just five months after signing a three-year contract. However, he was due $9 million in guaranteed money over the remainder of the contract if he was on the roster March 5, and the team has second-year TE Dustin Keller as the starter of the future. Baker caught just 21 passes for 194 yards and no scores last season, while Keller caught 48 passes for 535 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie.


FRANCHISE PLAYER: None.

TRANSITION PLAYER: None.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

--ILB Eric Barton was the team's leading tackler in 2008, but figures to look for (and get) a bigger payday elsewhere.

--CB Ahmad Carroll was signed as a street free agent just before camp, and was good on special teams. The organization likes him and he will be back.

--RB Jesse Chatman's 2008 season was curtailed by a four-game suspension and a knee injury, but returning offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer likes him so he could return.

--K Jay Feely did well for the Jets as a stopgap last season, but Mike Nugent is six years younger, so Nugent makes more sense for the long haul.

--TE Bubba Franks didn't have much left in the tank and won't be back, especially now that former Green Bay teammate Brett Favre has retired.

--CB Ty Law was solid after being signed off his couch in mid-November and the new coaching regime may want to keep the veteran around, that is, if Law wants to return.

--DT C.J. Mosley has shown flashes as part of the D-line rotation; could be back if the price is right.

--K Mike Nugent missed all but one game with a hamstring injury, but is younger than fellow UFA Jay Feely and figures to return.

--CB Hank Poteat is an Eric Mangini favorite so chances are he will wind up in Cleveland.

--S J.R. Reed didn't get on the field after being signed in November. Won't be re-signed because there will be better options out there.

--FB Tony Richardson is in the twilight of his career but is a workout demon and still is a big-time blocker. He fits Rex Ryan's tough mindset and has stated he wants to be back.

--OLB Cody Spencer is a special-teams standout so the Jets will look to re-sign him if the cost isn't too prohibitive.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

--SS Abram Elam is a hard hitter who is subpar in coverage, yet has an uncanny knack for the big play. Will fit Rex Ryan's system.

--OLB Marques Murrell didn't get much of a chance to show his wares under the previous coaching regime, but could be re-signed if Rex Ryan likes what he sees on Murrell's limited tape.

--WR Wallace Wright is strictly a special-teamer at this point, but he does that very well. Is likely to return.

EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENTS: Unknown.

PLAYERS RE-SIGNED: None.

PLAYERS ACQUIRED:

LB Nate Harris signed with the Jets.

DT Nate Robinson signed with the Jets.

CB Marquice Cole signed with the Jets.

PLAYERS LOST

--TE Chris Baker (released).

--CB David Barrett (released).

--LB David Bowens (released/failed physical).

--QB Brett Favre (retired).

--LB Brad Kassel (released/failed physical).
