New York Jets Strategy and Personnel 2009-04-18
MEDICAL WATCH: DE Shaun Ellis (offseason knee surgery) did not participate in the first day of voluntary minicamp, but is expected to return shortly.


--RG Brandon Moore (offseason surgery for sports hernia) did not participate in the first day of voluntary minicamp, but is expected to return shortly.

--ILB David Harris, who suffered a broken ankle in the 2008 regular-season finale, was on the field for the first day of voluntary minicamp and practiced full.

--TE Dustin Keller (flu-like symptoms) did not participate in the first day of voluntary minicamp, but is expected to return shortly.

FRANCHISE PLAYER: None.

TRANSITION PLAYER: None.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

--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.

--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 could play again in 2009, although if he does, it will be elsewhere.

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

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: None.

EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENTS

--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.
