The New York Jets future looked bright after the 2015 NFL season, where they almost made the playoffs. Ryan Fitzpatrick had oodles of weapons at his disposal, and the Jets defense was, at time impenetrable.
That success was short lived. Fitzpatrick struggled through the 2016 NFL season. Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall, and Darrelle Revis appeared like age was catching up to them, and the Jets defense was just embarrassing, even though they still had most of the players that shined in 2015.
This offseason the Jets cleaned up the shop, getting rid of Eric Decker, David Harris, Devin Smith, Marcus Gilchrist, Nick Mangold, Breno Giacomini, Nick Folk, Revis, Marshall, and Fitzpatrick. The Jets are void of veteran talent and are relying heavily on their younger players.
The New York Jets will go 0-16.
