The New York Jets had a disastrous 2020-2021 season, going 2-14, which was their worst record since 1996. This all culminated in a massive offseason shakeup, as head coach Adam Gase was fired following their final regular-season game. Ex-49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh was hired as new HC in January and will be the Jets’ third head coach in the last four seasons.
If you make bets on the Jets, they were 6-10 against the spread last season. In terms of the total, New York only covered the over six times as well.
The Sam Darnold era has also come and gone in the Big Apple, as the former number one overall pick was traded to Carolina in early April. The Jets drafted his replacement in the offseason, taking BYU quarterback Zach Wilson with the second pick. General manager Joe Douglas gave Wilson some help for the future, taking an offensive lineman and wide receiver with the next two picks.
The Jets also signed wide receivers Corey Davis and Keelan Cole in free agency, who will help complement Jamison Crowder. Former Falcons running back Tevin Coleman will be the starter in the backfield for the Jets.
Defensively, New York added edge rusher Carl Lawson, linebacker Jarrad Davis, and defensive lineman Sheldon Rankins, and safety Lamarcus Joyner. Excluding Darnold, the Jets didn’t really lose anyone of value in the offseason, and that has shown in terms of their expected Vegas win total.
