Will the Jets Turn it Around in 2018? One Former Player Personnel Guy Feels They Are Close

The Jets are getting a lot of kudos for the way they handled a tough season, and the way the team played despite what many felt was going to be a season that could have seen the team win just 2-3 games.

One person who for sure took notice is that of Gil Brandt, long time player personnel guy for the Dallas Cowboys, and now NFL Media senior analyst.

Today Brandt released an article on NFL.com talking about teams that have chances to go from ‘worst to first’ in 2018, and while he doesn’t say the Jets will do that, they do have a very good defense that will be back in 2018.

Here’s what he had to say about the Jets:

7) New York Jets (AFC East, 5-11)

The Jets played much better than expected. Coach Todd Bowles is pretty good, and I think they possess some talented defensive players in Jamal Adams, Marcus Maye and Leonard Williams who are also solid character types. Second-year pro Robby Anderson, meanwhile, has proven to be a find at wide receiver. The question for the Jets is, who will play quarterback? Josh McCown is 38 and headed for free agency, and while there’s a slim chance Bryce Petty could turn into something, it doesn’t seem like Christian Hackenberg ever will. Still, New York is pretty much on par with Buffalo and Miami. It’s an extremely safe bet that the Patriots will once again win the AFC East in 2018, meaning the Jets have almost no chance to go worst to first — but they have a better chance than the team ranked below, which simply faces more in-division obstacles.
