The Jets have reached agreements with OLB Anthony Barr and ILB C.J. Mosley, according to multiple reports. We haven't seen details yet on Barr's contract, but Mosley will get a monster, 5-year, $85 million pact that includes $51 million guaranteed. That all comes a year after the Jets gave ILB Avery Williamson a sizable 3-year, $22.5 million deal ($16 million guaranteed). Mosley will start next to Williamson inside, taking over for Darron Lee, and should remain a quality IDP contributor. Barr's role will be interesting to watch. He has been a stronger real-life than fantasy provider thus far but has proved to be an efficient pass rusher. If the Jets increase his pass-rush opportunities over what he drew in Minnesota, Barr could be in for a numbers spike. Overall, the Jets' defense has gained considerable upside. And they could yet add more in a strong draft for D-linemen.
The Jets have ruled CB Buster Skrine (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Colts. Fellow CB Trumaine Johnson is doubtful with a quad injury. That will likely leave the defense without 2 of its top 3 corners, which can only help Andrew Luck and crew. S Marcus Maye (ankle, foot) is also questionable for the 3rd straight game. He played through it the past 2 weeks and put in limited practices this week.
The Jets have ruled top CB Trumaine Johnson (quad) out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. He suffered the injury in Thursday's practice and then sat out Friday. S Marcus Maye is questionable after putting in limited practices all week. He played through the same questionable tag in Week 4 after missing the 1st 3 games. We'll see about Maye's status Sunday.
The Jets are expected to name Jeremy Bates their new OC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Bates spent last season as the Jets' QB coach, helping Josh McCown to a career year. He has just 1 season of experience calling plays, though, serving as Seattle's OC back in 2010. That squad -- quarterbacked by Matt Hasselbeck -- finished 28th in total yards and 23rd in total points.
