Jets AFC East Free Agent Preview

Pro Football Weekly has a free agent preview on the AFC East, and here’s what they have on the Jets heading into free agency.

Unsigned players: OLB Cody Brown (2), QB Kellen Clemens (5), CB Drew Coleman (5), OLB Shawn Crable (3), CB Antonio Cromartie (5), WR Braylon Edwards (6), DE Shaun Ellis (11), OL Robby Felix (1), PK Nick Folk (4), CB Ben Hannula (1), ILB David Harris (4, franchised), WR Santonio Holmes (5), OT Wayne Hunter (6), S James Ihedigbo (4), DT Matt Kroul (1), OL Dennis Landolt (1), LB Lance Laury (5), WR Logan Payne (2), S Brodney Pool (6), DE Trevor Pryce (14), RB Tony Richardson (16), LB Brashton Satele (1), WR Brad Smith (5), S Eric Smith (5), DT Martin Tevaseu (1), OL Robert Turner (3), P Steve Weatherford (5).

Analysis: Instead of deciding between Holmes or Edwards, the Jets are hoping to keep both top-flight wide receivers. Depending on what the salary cap is and what type of deal the two players are looking for, both playmakers could be back in New York in 2011, which would be a major plus for QB Mark Sanchez. A third receiver, Brad Smith, also should get a new contract, as the team wants to hold on to the versatile special-teams ace. Defensively, the big question will be what to do with Cromartie. His talents fit in perfectly with the team’s defensive scheme, as he and Darrelle Revis made up one of the NFL’s top CB duos in 2010. The team would like it if Cromartie agreed to take less money to stay in a Jets uniform. Ellis, the longest-tenured Jet, is also likely to return, although his salary and playing time are likely to decrease.
