2. New York Jets

The New York Jets did not have the same success that the Indianapolis Colts had this season, however, if you are a Jets fan then you have to be optimistic about the way the team finished the season. The Jets actually played some good football down the stretch and seem to be building something in New York for the first time in a while.

Robert Saleh is a really good defensive head coach and if Zach Wilson can iron out the kinks then the Jets really could see an arch like the Buffalo Bills over the next few years. Of course, Josh Allen is one of the best quarterbacks in the league and expecting Wilson to be that is a bit far-fetched; but Allen looked this bad in his first two years as well.

The Jets are looking to build a culture in the next few seasons and they have money to spend. While they could sign an older, big-name free agent, the Jets would be better off building up the foundation with multiple young players that can make an impact over the next 3-4 seasons.

Uchenna Nwosu fits that billing as he has only been in the league for four years but has relatively low miles on his body. Nwosu did not play much in his first three seasons and seems to be entering his prime, which teams like the Jets will recognize.

The Jets have a projected $37.9 million in practical cap space, which is the sixth-most this offseason. They also had the sixth-lowest pressure rate at 21.4%.
