The New York Jets are slowly filling out their roster holes in free agency and via trade

The New York Jets were quiet for most of the first day of free agency, but they’ve been active ever since. Joe Douglas completely revamped the offensive line and got a shiny new No. 2 receiver for Aaron Rodgers.

Let’s track all the moves the Jets made so far, as well as the players they lost and their continuing needs.

Free agency moves

  • Safety Ashtyn Davis has re-signed with the Jets. (Mike Garafolo) The deal is for one year and $2.74 million but will cost just $1.292 million against the salary cap per NFL rules.
  • The Jets traded a conditional 2026 third-round pick for Eagles EDGE Haason Reddick. The third-rounder will become a second if Reddick hits at least 67.5% playing time and 10 sacks in 2024. (Adam Schefter) The Jets will owe him $16 million for 2024, although reports indicate that the two sides are working on an extension.
  • The Jets are signing former Chargers receiver Mike Williams to a one-year deal. (Ian Rapoport) The deal is worth up to $15 million. (Adam Schefter) The deal includes $5 million in incentives and carries a $5.96 million cap hit in 2024. (Albert Breer)
  • LT Tyron Smith is signing with the Jets on a one-year deal worth up to $20 million. (Adam Schefter) The deal includes a $12.25 million cap hit. (Albert Breer) Michael Nania describes what Smith brings to the Jets.
  • DT Solomon Thomas is returning to the Jets on a one-year deal worth $3 million with $2.5 million guaranteed. (Connor Hughes)
  • The Jets signed C.J. Mosley to a new two-year contract that extends him through 2025 and clears $14 million in 2024 cap space.
  • Trade! The Jets have re-acquired former right tackle Morgan Moses from the Ravens for a pick swap. They gave up a fourth-rounder (No. 112) and a sixth-rounder (No. 218) and received a fourth-rounder (No. 134) in return. (Adam Schefter) Michael Nania and Andrew Fialkow explore Moses’ impact on the Jets.
  • The Jets signed former Cardinals DT Leki Fotu to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with upside up to $4 million. (Connor Hughes)
  • The Jets have filled their backup quarterback need, coming to terms with former Giants backup Tyrod Taylor on a two-year, $12 million deal with $8.5 million guaranteed. (Tom Pelissero)
  • The Jets have signed Ravens left guard John Simpson to a two-year, $12 million deal with $6 million guaranteed. (Tom Pelissero) Michael Nania has the lowdown on Simpson here.
  • Former 49ers first-round pick DT Javon Kinlaw has inked a one-year deal with the Jets. (Adam Schefter) The deal is worth $7.25 million with $6.91 million guaranteed. (Zack Rosenblatt)
  • The Jets re-signed kicker Greg Zuerlein to a two-year, $8.4 million deal. (Ian Rapoport)
  • Former 49ers slot cornerback Isaiah Oliver signed a one-year deal with the Jets. (Mike Garafolo)
  • Safety Chuck Clark re-signed with the Jets on a one-year deal. (Adam Schefter)

Free agency losses

Former Jets of note

  • QB Joe Flacco signed a one-year deal worth up to $8.7 million with the Colts.
  • DT Sheldon Rankins signed with the Bengals on a two-year, $26 million deal.
  • OT George Fant signed with the Seahawks.
  • QB Sam Darnold signed a one-year deal with the Vikings worth up to $10 million. Right now, he’s the top passer on their depth chart after Kirk Cousins left to Atlanta.
  • The Vikings also signed former Jets linebacker Blake Cashman to a three-year deal worth up to $25.5 million.
  • LB Frankie Luvu signed a three-year, $36 million deal with the Commanders.
  • DT Leonard Williams re-signed with the Seahawks on a three-year, $64.5 million deal.

Remaining options

  • Former Ravens edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney visited the Jets today. The team still needs a No. 2 running back, and the top remaining options are D’Onta Foreman, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and Ezekiel Elliott.
