New York Jets training camp storylines

Syndication: USA TODAY

Aaron Rodgers as the missing piece

Even if Aaron Rodgers isn’t playing at an MVP-caliber level, he can fix a lot of the New York Jets problems offensively. The Jets finished last season ranked 28th in third-down conversion rate (34.58%), 31st in red-zone efficiency (43.48% red-zone touchdown rate) and 32nd in team passer rating (75).

Rodgers fixes all of that. He’ll hit Jets’ receivers in stride, take the throws that the defense gives to him and execute the basic fundamentals of the offense. That alone will make New York’s offense better in 2023. If Rodgers shows some of those MVP-caliber traits during training camp, there will be a lot more buzz that New York can have a top-10 offense this season.

Looming questions with the offensive line

Sacks are just as much of a reflection on quarterbacks as the offensive line. However, New York heads into the season ranked 23rd in PFF’s offensive line rankings and the concerns are obvious. While the Jets can feel confident in guards Laken Tomlinson and Alijah Vera-Tucker, center and both tackle spots are huge questions.

Duane Brown is the projected starter at left tackle, but he turns 38 years old in August and his play is slipping. Mekhi Becton could be a potential option, but he seemingly finds new ways to be removed from the field. Behind those two, it’s journmeyman Billy Turner along with backups Greg Senat and Max Mitchell. It’s clear why the Jets’ offensive line is their biggest concern.

Monitoring the Jets’ safeties

New York can feel extremely confident in its cornerbacks heading into the 2023 season. Sauce Gardner is a Defensive Player of the Year candiadte and fellow boundary cornerback D.J. Reed proved himself last season as the perfect complement to Gardner. In the slot, Michael Carter II proved to be reliable and Bryce Hall is a high-upside corner off the bench.

Things get more interesting in the secondary. Jordan Whitehead is the projected starter at free safety, but Pro Football Focus graded him 46th at his position last year. New York added Chuck Clark to help address the weakness at strong safety, but he suffered a torn ACL. While Adrian Amos is a viable replacement, the Jets have no real depth at the position and Whitehead is already a question mark.

Players with jobs at stake

The Jets have some of the best players in football on their roster and the depth chart is loaded with quality starters and reliable role players. However, several marquee names will also be fighting for their jobs in training camp.

Corey Davis is fourth on the depth chart at wide receiver and New York could shave off $10 million in cap space by cutting him this summer. At that same position, former second-round pick Denzel Mims facing long odds of making the 53-man roster. Zonovan Knight could be fighting for his job, 2022 third-round pick jeremy Ruckert is buried on the depth chart and safety Ashtyn Davis is fighting for a backup role. If these players don’t deliver, it will be their last training camp with the Jets.

Players to watch during Jets training camp

Zach Wilson, quarterback

This is it for Zach Wilson. Through his first 22 career starts, the former No. 3 overall pick, Wilson is off to a worse start (70.9 QB rating, 55.2% completion rate, 2.9 INT%) than JaMarcus Russell (68.8 QB rating, 52% completion rate). The reports from OTAs and minicamp were mixed and inconsistent performances in relaxed practices aren’t a sign of a third-year leap. While Wilson is the backup quarterback, he’ll get plenty of reps in training camp. If he struggles, even falling to third on the depth chart, New York must consider moving on.

Will McDonald IV, edge rusher

Many expected New York to spend its first-round pick on a left tackle, but it had to pivot once the top options were gone. Will McDonald IV offers an enticing combination of length and athleticism, which already won over the Jets’ coaching staff at OTAs. The rookie is focused on gaining weight this summer as he settles in, but he’s ticketed for a prominent role in the rotation on the defensive line. If McDonald turns his physical tools into early dominance during one-on-one reps and team drills during training camp then it carries over into the regular season, the Jets could have the best defense in the league.

Breece Hall, running back

From Weeks 4-7, running back Breece Hall averaged 5.95 yards per carry and accounted for 468 scrimmage yards with four touchdowns. Unfortunately, he tore his ACL against the New England Patriots and has spent his offseason recovering from knee surgery. While the Jets are very confident Hall will be ready for Week 1, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic wrote in June that he’s skeptical of the second-year running back being ready to go early in training camp.

Even if Hall is cleared, New York will significantly limit his workload. When he is given opportunities in training camp, though, fans will need to keep a close eye on his exploveiness andhow effortless cutting on that surgically-repaired knee is. If there are any concerns, Dalvin Cook or Leonard Fournette become options in free agency.

Mekhi Becton, right tackle

Injuries have always been one of the biggest problems for Mekhi Becton. Selected 11th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, Becton missed OTAs with a knee injury just weeks after New York declined his fifth-year option. While he battled to get his weight under 360 pounds for the first time in years, Becton hasn’t proven he can stay on the field.

Heading into training camp, Becton wants to play left tackle and the starting job is up for grabs. However, the 6-foot-7 offensive lineman hasn’t proven he deserves the coveted blindside protector spot yet and it won’t be given to him. If he struggles in reps or can’t even consistently practice, the Jets’ issues on the offensive line get even worse.

Carl Lawson, edge rusher

In his first season back from a torn Achilles, Carl Lawson recorded 24 quarterback hits and seven sacks in 2022. The 6-foot-2 edge rusher didn’t show the same explosion off the snap that he displayed with the Cincinnati Bengals, but that’s reasonable considering the long recovery from an Achilles tear. Lawson heads into training camp this summer in much better physical shape and he should be playing with more confidence now. If he recaptures his form, the Jets’ pass rush elevates considerably. Unfortunately for New York, it also becomes a concern if the player we saw in 2022 (66.8 PFF grade) is just who Lawson is now.
