We go over the full list of the Jets free agents in 2023 and key decisions to be made this offseason.

The New York Jets are in for an interesting offseason. They have been linked to quarterbacks Derek Carr and Aaron Rodgers, with either being a substantial upgrade over the trio they used in 2022. Outside of that storyline, they have 25 pending free agents. When it comes to the team’s quarterback situation, Zach Wilson and Chris Streveler are the only holdovers as Mike White and Joe Flacco will hit free agency.

With rumors swirling about the future of the team’s quarterback position, the Jets have surprisingly good odds of winning Super Bowl 58. They are installed at +2800 at DraftKings Sportsbook, which is tied with the Baltimore Ravens and just ahead of the Miami Dolphins.

While the quarterback room is set to get thinner, they aren’t the only impending free agents. Center Connor McGovern played 100% of snaps and would be a smart player to bring back to help anchor an offensive line for whoever ends up under center. Safety Lamarcus Joyner played 76.7% of snaps and brought veteran leadership to an emerging secondary. The Jets also have some decisions to make about reliable veterans LB Kwon Alexander, IDL Sheldon Rankins, LT George Fant and IDL Solomon Thomas, who are all set to hit free agency.

Franchise tag options

C Connor McGovern

The New York Jets don’t really have any reason to use their franchise tag. Realistically, McGovern would be the only option that would make sense if they are unable to come to terms with him or another deal. The problem is that if they tag him, they will have to pay him $18.24 million for just the 2023 season. At 30 years old, that is a steep price tag and one they aren't likely to pay.
