New York Jets Free Agency Predictions 2024: Will Davante Adams Be Reunited With Aaron Rodgers?

The New York Jets have big needs to fill if they want to snap their 13-year playoff drought in 2024. Here are four Jets free agency predictions.

Coming off a disappointing 2023 season, the New York Jets, with a healthy Aaron Rodgers, will look to snap their 13-year playoff drought, which is the longest in professional sports. For a franchise that is looking to compete for a Super Bowl in 2024, what moves do they need to make this offseason? Here are four Jets free agency predictions.

New York Jets Free Agency Predictions

Like last year, the Jets enter this offseason with high expectations. Their 2023 season basically ended after just four plays when Rodgers went down with a season-ending torn Achilles injury, but the assumption is that the future Hall of Fame quarterback will be fully healthy for the start of 2024.

With better quarterback play, the Jets could be one of the most improved teams this upcoming season, but they still have plenty of needs to fill.

Bring in Ryan Tannehill as a Backup QB

The Jets figured that former No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson would be a serviceable backup quarterback for Aaron Rodgers — that was proven to be incorrect.

Rodgers’ season lasted just four plays, and when Wilson filled in, he didn’t play any better than he did in his first two seasons with the Jets.

With a roster built to win now, owner Woody Johnson and the organization have made it abundantly clear that they need better insurance at the position behind Rodgers.

“We need a backup quarterback,” said Johnson at the NFL Honors. “We didn’t have one last year.”

Of the veteran free agent quarterbacks available, one name that comes to mind is Ryan Tannehill.

With starting quarterback experience in Miami and Tennessee, Tannehill provides a veteran voice in the locker room and would be a very serviceable option if Rodgers goes down with an injury again.

Tannehill also has AFC East experience, quarterbacking the Dolphins from 2012-2018.

Davante Adams Is Reunited With Aaron Rodgers

The Jets have a budding superstar at wide receiver in Garrett Wilson, but after that, their depth at the position is severely lacking.

A top priority for the team this offseason will be to surround Rodgers with more weapons, and the player at the top of his wish list is his former teammate: star WR Davante Adams.

It has been reported that Rodgers is recruiting Adams to New York, but the Raiders, as of now, have zero plans in trading him. But could this be the Raiders looking to increase their leverage with the Jets?

Re-Sign Jordan Whitehead and Randall Cobb

Arguably one of the top defenses across the league, Whitehead quickly made a name for himself in a season-opening victory this past year vs. Buffalo.

Staring down QB Josh Allen during their Sept. 11 meeting at MetLife Stadium, the former Pittsburgh Panther tallied three interceptions.

Whitehead finished the campaign with a career-best four.

He also brings championship experience to a franchise looking to get back to their winning ways, with Whitehead winning a Super Bowl as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer during the 2020 season.

If Adams is shockingly a Jet soon, there is no reason why the Jets should not re-sign and keep Randall Cobb, as well.

Having shared the same field as Rodgers during their playing days in Green Bay, Cobb has hauled in plenty of big-time grabs from the Hall of Fame QB.

Cobbs’ 2023 season was a weak one, but with Rodgers set to return to the field soon, there could be mutual interest.
