Before Joe Douglas can focus on external targets, he has a handful of impending in-house free agents to evaluate.
The Jets have 28 players set to hit the open market this offseason. Some won’t factor into New York’s plans for 2022, while others, it’s safe to assume, the Jets would like to keep around for a while. Either way, Douglas has a lot of work to do to put together a competitive roster for Robert Saleh’s second year at the helm.
Nathan Shepherd finished with a career-high 28 tackles in 2021, but he played sparingly at New York’s deepest position. Should the Jets retain him as defensive line depth for next season? Let’s evaluate the situation in Jets Wire’s latest free agent profile.
