Jets bring back S Ashtyn Davis

The New York Jets re-signed safety Ashtyn Davis on Thursday. Terms were not disclosed.

Davis, 27, became a free agent when his rookie contract expired this spring.

He led the Jets with six takeaways (three interceptions, three fumble recoveries) and played all 17 games in 2023.

The 2020 third-round draft pick has recorded 140 tackles and six interceptions in 54 career games (21 starts).

Jets RT Morgan Moses recovering from pec surgery

New York Jets right tackle Morgan Moses is recovering from surgery for a torn pectoral muscle but expects to be ready for training camp.

“I look forward to having two arms this year,” Moses said at his introductory press conference on Wednesday.

Moses, 33, spent the past two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before returning to the Jets in a trade last week. He started 16 of his 17 games during his lone season with New York in 2021.

Moses revealed Wednesday that he tore his pec in Week 4 last season but delayed surgery until six weeks ago.

He sat out the Ravens’ games in Week 5 and Weeks 9-10 but finished with 16 total starts, including the playoffs.

Moses has started 144 of his 152 career regular-season games with Washington (2014-20), New York and Baltimore. Washington drafted him in the third round in 2014.

The Ravens swapped fourth-round picks with New York and received the Jets’ sixth-round pick in next month’s draft in exchange for Moses.

New York Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley (57) reacts after a tackle against the New England Patriots in the second half. The Jets lose to the Patriots, 15-10, at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Sept. 24, 2023, in East Rutherford.

Jets reach 2-year, $17.25M deal with LB C.J. Mosley

The New York Jets and linebacker C.J. Mosley agreed to a new two-year, $17.25 million contract, ESPN reported Thursday.

The deal includes $13.25 million guaranteed, including $9 million in 2024. It replaces the final year of his previous contract that had no remaining guarantees, per the report.

Mosley, 31, led the Jets in tackles for the third straight season with 152 in 17 starts in 2023, adding a pair of forced fumbles and one interception.

The five-time Pro Bowl selection has 1,066 tackles, 12 sacks, 12 interceptions and 10 forced fumbles in 129 games (all starts) with the Baltimore Ravens (2014-18) and Jets. The Ravens drafted him with the 17th pick in 2014.

New York announced Thursday it had re-signed offensive lineman Jake Hanson. Terms were not disclosed for the 26-year-old restricted free agent, who made four starts for the Jets in 2023.

Report: Jets re-sign K Greg Zuerlein to 2-year, $8.4M deal

The New York Jets reached agreement with kicker Greg Zuerlein on a two-year, $8.4 million deal, NFL Network reported Monday.

It’s a hefty pay raise for the 12-year NFL veteran, who played on one-year contracts with the Jets for $2 million in 2022 and $2.6 million last season.

Zuerlein converted 35 of 38 field-goal attempts and 15 of 16 extra-point tries in 16 games in 2023.

A Pro Bowl and All-Pro selection with the Los Angeles Rams in 2017, Zuerlein has made 83.1 percent of his field goals (329 of 396) and 95.7 percent of his PATs (382 of 399) with the St. Louis/L.A. Rams (2012-19), Dallas Cowboys (2020-21) and Jets.

Jets grant QB Zach Wilson permission to seek trade

The Jets have given quarterback Zach Wilson permission to seek a trade, general manager Joe Douglas said Wednesday.

New York took Wilson with the No. 2 overall pick in 2021 and saw him go 12-21 as an on-again, off-again starter for three seasons.

The Jets have four-time league MVP Aaron Rodgers coming back from a torn Achilles to be their starter in 2024.

Douglas may have signaled that the Wilson era in New York is all but over with his remarks Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

“I’ve had good conversations with his agent, Brian Ayrault,” Douglas said. “Where we are exactly, we’ve given them permission to talk to other teams about a trade. I’m going to circle back with Brian at some point either this week or next week just to see how those conversations go. Other than that, there’s nothing else to report.”

Wilson’s trade value, according to many league experts, is worth either a sixth- or seventh-round pick in April’s NFL draft or perhaps a middle-round pick swap.

Wilson, 24, was 4-7 in 2023 and passed for 2,271 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Through 34 games (33 starts), he has completed 57.0 percent of his passes for 6,293 yards, 23 TDs and 25 picks.

With Wilson on the way out, that leaves No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence of the Jacksonville Jaguars as the only one of five first-round QBs in the 2021 draft class guaranteed of being his original team’s starter in 2024.

The San Francisco 49ers drafted Trey Lance third overall and traded him to the Dallas Cowboys last August. Justin Fields was the No. 10 pick by the Chicago Bears and Mac Jones went 15th to the New England Patriots, but both are on unstable ground this offseason.

Raheem Mostert sets TD mark as Dolphins blast Jets

Raheem Mostert rushed for two scores to set a franchise single-season record for total touchdowns and the Miami Dolphins dismantled the New York Jets 30-0 on Sunday afternoon at Miami Gardens, Fla.

Bradley Chubb had a field day and matched his career high of three sacks to go with two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery as the AFC East-leading Dolphins (10-4) won for the fourth time in the past five games. Brandon Jones intercepted two passes for Miami, which routed the Jets twice this season by an average of 25.5 points.

Tua Tagovailoa completed 21 of 24 passes for 224 yards and one touchdown for the Dolphins. Tyreek Hill (ankle) missed the contest as Jaylen Waddle stepped into the lead role and had eight receptions with a season-best 142 yards for Miami.

The Jets (5-9) lost for the sixth time in seven games with quarterback Zach Wilson departing late in the second quarter with a concussion. He completed 4 of 11 passes for 26 yards and was sacked four times, while under duress on multiple other occasions.

Trevor Siemian replaced Wilson with 1:03 left in the first half and finished 14-of-26 passing for 110 yards. He was intercepted twice and sacked twice.

New York was held to 103 total yards and committed four turnovers. The Dolphins had 290 yards while playing turnover-free football.

Mostert increased his season touchdown count to 20 with two short scoring runs in the first half. The former club record of 18 was held by legendary receiver Mark Clayton, who set the mark in 1984.

New York was outgained 197-4 in the first half and trailed 24-0 at the break.

Miami’s first touchdown was set up when Chubb and Christian Wilkins combined to sack Wilson and Chubb dislodged the ball and Zach Sieler recovered and returned it 3 yards to the Jets’ 1-yard line. Three plays later, Mostert scored from the 2 to break Clayton’s record.

Jason Sanders kicked a 37-yard field goal with 13:56 left in the second quarter. Six-plus minutes later, immediately after a New York punt, Tagovailoa threw deep and connected with Waddle on a 60-yard scoring pass to make it 17-0.

With 1:03 left in the half, Mostert scored from the 1 to boost the lead to 24.

Sanders added field goals of 27 and 35 yards in the second half for Miami.

Jets QB Zach Wilson departs vs. Dolphins

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson exited Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins late in the second quarter with a head injury and was ruled out early in the second half.

According to CBS, the Jets said Wilson is not in concussion protocol. Earlier, the team said Wilson was dealing with dehydration.

Wilson completed 4 of 11 passes for 26 yards and was sacked four times. He also was under duress on multiple other occasions.

New York was outgained 197-4 in the half and trailed 24-0 at the break.

In the first quarter, Wilson briefly was examined for a head injury before being cleared and returning to the game.

Trevor Siemian replaced Wilson with 1:03 left in the half. He went 2 of 4 for 11 yards and was sacked once during his lone drive of the second quarter.

Siemian took the field for New York’s first possession of the third quarter and the Jets failed to get a first down and were forced to punt.

New York faces a Wednesday deadline to activate Aaron Rodgers off injured reserve. Rodgers tore his Achilles on the fourth snap of the season.

A loss to the Dolphins would drop New York to 5-9, which might affect which direction the club chooses to go with Rodgers.

Wilson returned to the starting role last week and had his best outing of the season. He completed 27 of 36 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-6 rout of the visiting Houston Texans.

New York had three other players injured in the first half. Defensive linemen Quinton Jefferson and John Franklin-Myers both sustained hip injuries with Jefferson ruled out and Franklin-Myers listed as questionable to return. Safety Tony Adams exited to be evaluated due to a head injury and was cleared to return.

Florham Park, NJ May 31, 2023 -- Offensive tackle Duane Brown during the Jets OTA.

Jets activate OT Duane Brown off IR, add him to roster

New York Jets left tackle Duane Brown was activated from injured reserve after an injury that’s kept him out since September.

Brown, 38, was added to the 53-man roster on the final day of his 21-day practice window. Had the Jets not made the move to activate him, Brown would have been stuck on the IR for the rest of the season.

Brown played the first two games of the season before being placed on IR in Week 3 with shoulder and hip issues. Brown has recently referenced a groin injury.

The Jets face the Miami Dolphins in the NFL’s first Black Friday game, though it’s not clear what role Brown will play, if any.

Mekhi Becton started the past eight games at left tackle, but he sprained an ankle during last Sunday’s 32-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Rookie Carter Warren finished the game in his place.

Brown is a five-time Pro Bowl selection with 217 career starts across 16 seasons with the Houston Texans (2008-17), Seattle Seahawks (2017-21) and Jets.

He was selected by the Texans with the 26th overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech. He signed a two-year, $20 million deal with the Jets in August 2022.
