The Jets released Le'Veon Bell on Tuesday after a little over a year's worth of time together in which Bell rushed 264 times for 863 yards -- a paltry 3.27 yards per carry -- and three scores.
After a seven-month contract dispute, the New York Jets agreed to trade All-Pro safety Jamal Adams to the Seattle Seahawks for a package that includes first-round draft picks in each of the next two years.
The New York Jets have released running back Isaiah Crowell, the team announced Thursday. The addition of free agent Le'Veon Bell, who agreed to a four-year, $52.5 million contract late Tuesday night, made Crowell expendable. The Jets were planning to release Crowell even if they didn't sign Bell. This leaves Bell, Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon as their top three backs. Bilal Powell, the longest-tenured player on last season's team, is a free agent and not likely to return.
By doing exactly what everyone expected, Le'Veon Bell is boring everyone. At midnight he dropped an album on Spotify, it contained no clues (and it wasn't very good) and then he signed with the Jets, per CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora. Bell has since confirmed the deal as well.
The Jets will open their 2018 regular season on ESPN's "Monday Night Football" at the Lions, according to the New York Post. The game will be played on Sept. 10, and will be the first half of the opening Monday night doubleheader. The full 2018 NFL regular season schedule will be released at 8 p.m. Thursday. The NFL has decided to start its prime-time games earlier in 2018. The Monday games will now start at 8:15 p.m. -- 15 minutes earlier. Thursday night games have been bumped from 8:25 to 8:20. Sunday night games have been bumped from 8:30 to 8:20.
It appears the New York Jets are officially hunting for a quarterback in 2018 NFL Draft. The Jets acquired the No. 3 overall pick in the draft from the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday.
Will Kelvin Benjamin make his Bills debut on Thursday night? How much does it even matter? Yes, the Bills certainly needed a boost at wide receiver. Second-round rookie Zay Jones’s development has been slow, and “slow” is a good word to describe the rest of Buffalo’s receiving corps. Benjamin, far from a speedster, doesn’t change that—he’s a big-bodied possession target, effective on slant patterns but not quick enough in his throttle-down and direction-changing to beat defenders with a full route tree. Also, he’s the type of receiver a quarterback must be willing to target when he’s covered, but Tyrod Taylor is not a tight-window anticipation thrower.
Trading is part of what makes draft day great, and any mock that avoids swinging deals between teams is doing itself a disservice. Last week, I took a look at what it would cost the Browns to move all the way up to No. 2. Earlier today, I broke down which teams could entertain trading up in this draft, based on critical positional need and/or extra draft capital with which to maneuver.
Brandon Marshall is on the move again — and the New York Jets’ roster purge of big-name players with big salaries continues. The Jets on Friday released the well-traveled wide receiver and cleared $7.5 million on the salary cap. Marshall is the latest star to be cut by the Jets, who have also parted ways with Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, Nick Folk and Breno Giacomini this offseason. New York has cleared nearly $46 million in cap space during the past few weeks.
Unfortunately, the clown show that sets up at the Patriots’ Gillette Stadium on Saturday afternoon has proved otherwise, and not even a sled full of gifts from Santa will rescue this season from joke status.
The Jets will name Geno Smith their new starting quarterback, over Ryan Fitzpatrick, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Jets receiver Eric Decker, who has missed the past two games with a partially torn rotator cuff, has been placed on injured reserve. He will have season-ending surgery.
Tyrod Taylor showed he knew how to hit the home run, but too often the Bills struggled with the singles or doubles and the Jets took advantage in a 37-31 win Thursday night in Buffalo.
Wide receiver Eric Decker had a strong season catching passes from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2015, so it comes as little surprise that Decker wants to see Fitzpatrick and the Jets sort out their differences in time for Fitzpatrick to return for another year with the team. What did come as a surprise to Decker was…
On Thursday night, the Detroit Lions got the 2015 NFL preseason off to a good start by pummeling the New York Jets, 23-3, at Ford Field. The starting offense only stayed on the field for one drive but things were clicking right away, with a 71-yard drive capped off by a 35-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford to Golden Tate.
The New York Jets look to redeem themselves after an abysmal 2014 season under the dysfunctional John Idzik-Rex Ryan regime. Here are some pivotal games, beyond just division rivals, on the Jets schedule that could propel the team into a wild-card spot in the 2015 postseason.
Geno Smith's tumultuous career with the New York Jets has hit another snag, as the quarterback has suffered a broken jaw after a locker room fight with linebacker IK Enemkpali. The injury will sideline him for six to 10 weeks, per Brian Costello of the New York Post.
