Dan Feeney will re-sign with the New York Jets

The New York Jets have begun working on filling out the backup roles on their depth chart.

Brian Costello of the New York Post reports that the Jets have agreed to re-sign interior offensive lineman Dan Feeney on a one-year deal.

Feeney, who will turn 28 in May, established himself as a fan-favorite among Jets fans for his offseason antics at New York Islanders games after signing with the team on a one-year, $3.5 million contract. More importantly, he provided decent depth late in the season as he made three starts in relief, one at left guard and two at center (he officially had five starts, but in two of those he was just on the field at the start of the game as an extra blocker).

The Indiana product tends to struggle in pass protection but showed in 2021 that he can have some moments in the run game. A fairly decent athlete, Feeney looked like a good fit in the Jets’ running scheme and helped facilitate some tremendous rushing success during his late-season action.

Feeney joins Greg Van Roten, Conor McDermott (who was re-signed prior to free agency), and Chuma Edoga as the primary backup offensive linemen on the Jets’ roster at the moment. Van Roten can be released to clear $3.5 million in cap space with no dead money.

A third-round pick (71st overall) of the Los Angeles Chargers in 2017, Feeney is entering his sixth NFL season. He has played 79 games in his career, starting 62 of those. The Orland Park, Illinois native has only missed two games out of 81 possible appearances.

Feeney joins Tevin Coleman (re-signed), Braxton Berrios (re-signed), Laken Tomlinson, and C.J. Uzomah in the Jets’ package of offensive signings this week.

Feeney got better as the season progressed, this will be his second year in the system, possible major improvement. McGovern in the last year if his contract, opportunity on the horizon

So the Jets signing more garbage players that did nothing for the team. Yeah depth signings is all they have done. The clock is ticking for Joe and after this free agency rightly so. He let Jones get away too, so now you run to the draft and pick a unproven player to man the edge? Ok, about ready to jump ship!

He did some “nice thigns” late but was horrible early. I don’t love this but I do understand it. I prefer they sign Larry but I’m not sure what he’s asking, and if history teaches us anything they better move on from Edoga. They need an insurance policy for Becton, and right now they don’t have one.

Yea he went and signed all these back up players that did nothing for the team in the first place. Another whiff, this time chandler jones and missed out on Williams because they didn’t want to pay the state tax? Really? Ok, im on the way out if this ship is not right!
