Jets DE Sheldon Richardson played 49 of 63 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over Washington, his 1st game back after a 4-week suspension. According to NJ.com, Richardson played in every defensive package except for the base 3-4 look, which the Jets didn't use much against Washington. HC Todd Bowles instead opted for a 4-3 front that got Richardson on the field with Muhammad Wilkerson and Leonard Williams. Wilkerson played 59 snaps, and Williams played 57. We see no reason why the Jets wouldn't continue such usage. OLB Quinton Coples spent much less time on the field than usual, but he has yet to register a sack this season. Less Coples would be no big loss to the Jets or IDP owners. Richardson belongs on a roster in most IDP leagues at this point. And the Jets' D looks pretty good going forward.
The Jets entered Sunday's game against the Patriots with LB C.J. Mosley (hamstring) inactive and Jarrad Davis (ankle) not yet back from IR. The defense then watched LBs Jamien Sherwood (calf), Quincy Williams (concussion) and Blake Cashman (groin) leave the game. We'll have to watch the whole situation to see who's in for next Sunday's game against the Bengals. If healthy, Mosley should remain a full-time starter. Davis' return would complicate the outlook for Williams, though.
The Jets announced Friday that S Marcus Maye has opened training camp on the non-football injury list. DT Quinnen Williams landed on the active/PUP list. Williams' designation isn't surprising after his foot fracture in early May. It's not clear what Maye's issue is. We'll see how soon each starter gets activated.
Robert Saleh has signed a 5-year deal to become the Jets' HC, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Saleh has spent the last 4 seasons as San Francisco's defensive coordinator, leading the Niners to top 5 finishes in yards allowed in each of the past 2. Saleh is reportedly expected to bring former 49ers passing-game coordinator Mike LaFleur with him to New York to serve as OC. Mike is Packers HC Matt LaFleur's brother and has worked under Kyle Shanahan since 2014. LaFleur's only experience as an offensive coordinator came at Saint Joseph's in 2011 and 2012 and Davidson in 2013.
The Jets have fired HC Adam Gase, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This has been a long time coming. Gase's Jets won just 9 games over the past 2 seasons, finishing dead last in total yards both years. Other than when he's had QB Peyton Manning, his offenses have disappointed. We'll see who the Jets tab to replace Gase, but it'll undoubtedly be an upgrade for the offense.
Jets LB Blake Cashman (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Dolphins. He has been out since Week 7 and entered the day questionable. Cashman could be ready to regain the starting spot that Harvey Langi has occupied recently. Cashman is tough to trust in IDP lineups right away, though. He has played just 3 total defensive snaps on the year.
