Mike Maccagnan was announced at the Jets general manager in January 2015, after he beat out a handful of candidates, including current Miami Dolphins general manager Chris Grier. After the disastrous outcome of using a search firm to find their previous general manager (John Idzik), the Jets' decision to hire Maccagnan came largely from the recommendation of the experienced pairing of Charlie Casserly and Ron Wolf.

Early results for Maccagnan were good. Having been hired alongside Todd Bowles, Maccagnan made a couple of splashes and some shrewd moves, putting the team in position to make the postseason until they choked the opportunity away in the season finale in Buffalo.

Jets first-round pick Quinnen Williams arrived in Florham Park on Friday and the defensive tackle was all smiles as he was about to embark on his NFL career. 

The 6-foot-2, 302-pound Williams felt like a little kid getting to meet his new Jets teammates and offered some colorful quotes at Jets rookie orientation on Friday. 

Here are some of the highlights from his first press conference:

It has been a custom for Le'Veon Bell to miss offseason workouts over the past few years in the NFL, and he defended that decision on Monday after a fan asked when he was going to show up to Florham Park. 

"I got to stick to the formula that I know works for me to be the best player I can be," Bell responded to the fan on his Instagram. He added "everybody will forget about that once January comes around."

But Bell isn't the only one defending himself. The man that played a vital role in getting him to sign with the Jets in Jamal Adams also came to his side with a comment under that same post, saying "I understand & get it brotha. Do what makes u happy. Ima hold it down."

It may be a new-look Jets team this season, but Jamal Adams promises it has the same goal as always. 

Winning.

"Obviously we're in New York," Adams told newyorkjets.com during one of the team's voluntary offseason workouts. "This is a win-now type of mentality and that's how we're taking it. We have to keep stacking the days and keep working out and I think we'll be fine."

Quinnen Williams ready for NFL 00:02:24
Ralph Vacchiano talked to Jets target Quinnen Williams ahead of the NFL Draft. He's definitely well versed with Jets players.

There are many unknowns heading into the 2019 NFL Draft on Thursday night, but if there is one thing that many can agree on, it's that Alabama DT Quinnen Williams shouldn't make it out of the Top 3. 

Williams is highly regarded as the top interior lineman in this draft, and arguably the best overall defensive player to choose. If the Jets don't trade down, they could have a chance to nab him at No. 3 overall -- granted he makes it passed the Cardinals and 49ers with the first two picks.

While scouts have been drooling over what Williams can do on a football field, there is no need to remind the 21-year-old how he can impact an NFL team next season. Speaking with SNY's Ralph Vacchiano 1-on-1 ahead of the Draft in Nashville, Williams was confident in saying he's the best pass rusher in this year's class.

Safety Jamal Adams was one of the key Jets players who recruited running back Le'Veon Bell to New York.

Turns out, he also had a role in bringing linebacker C.J. Mosley to the Meadowlands as well.

"Obviously he's a tremendous player, I was excited to get him," Adams said, according to newyorkjets.com. "I kind of recruited him at the Pro Bowl. I didn't think they'd get rid of him, no one did. He came to us and I can't tell you how excited I am."

Jamal Adams is not buying Rob Gronkowski's retirement. 

The Patriots tight end revealed on March 24 that he was stepping away from football at the age of 29 after a nine-year career that included three Super Bowl championships. 

The Jets' Pro Bowl safety, however, does not expect the retirement to last very long.

Is Jamal Adams the LeBron James of the NFL?

When it comes to his recruiting efforts, he just may be. At least according to Adams.

The Jets safety, who was in New York City on Thursday to unveil the team's new uniforms, likened himself to the NBA star when asked about his efforts on recruiting Le'Veon Bell to sign with the Jets.

New uniforms for the Jets 00:01:10
Sam Darnold, Leonard Williams, and Jamal Adams model the new uniforms for the New York Jets, and share their excitement for their new look.

The Jets' new look for 2019 goes beyond the players and coaching staff -- they will have new uniforms, too. 

On Thursday, the Jets unveiled new Nike uniforms, including a new-look helmet and football-shaped logo, that they will wear next season. 

The new uniforms include five different combinations: a green top with white pants, a white top with green pants, all-green, all-white and an all-black alternate uniform that will be worn a maximum three times next season.

Why Le'Veon Bell chose Jets 00:01:05
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell explains why deep down he wanted to choose the Jets. Jamal Adams' excellent recruiting also helped.

When Le'Veon Bell entered free agency this offseason, he always had the Jets on his list of desired teams. And once GM Mike Maccagnan came calling with the right offer, he knew he had to pull the trigger. 

"The Jets (were) just kind of the team I had in the back of my mind where I wanted to go," Bell told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano over a conference call after the Jets made the signing official Thursday night.

But the numbers Bell agreed to came under heavy scrutiny. The Steelers offered him a five-year, $70 million deal, but after sitting out a year to keep his body fresh and hopefully increase his value on the market, he agreed to a four-year, $52.5 million contract with the Jets...

Bell's deal has a max value of $61 million with incentives, and he will receive $35 million in guaranteed money. The 27-year-old confirmed the move on Twitter right around midnight and posted to his Instagram with his new green and white threads. He also made sure to mention his new mixtape "Life's A Gamble..."

Top free agent RB Le'Veon Bell and Jets S Jamal Adams are back at it on Twitter, and this time, the notion of a super team is involved. 

On Tuesday, a couple safeties like Giants' Landon Collins and Ravens' Eric Weddle hit the free agent market to add to the already-stacked safety heap this offseason. Players like Earl Thomas and Tyrann Mathieu are also out there to pick up, and Bell tweeted at them all to see where they want to go together. 

Well, Adams, who has been trying to recruit Bell all offseason, didn't like seeing the running back talking to the other safeties in the league. Adams decided to remind Bell that super teams don't exist in the NFL...

Vacc talks Jets "D" 00:01:10
SNY's Ralph Vacchiano shares some insights on who the Jets may be targeting in the NFL Draft to improve their pass rush

INDIANAPOLIS - Mike Maccagnan and Adam Gase set the stage for an aggressive offseason for the Jets when they met the media at the NFL scouting combine last week, in part because they have no choice. They have a depleted roster, tons of cap room, a high draft pick, and a willingness to trade.

So how will they reshape their roster? They didn't exactly lay out a blueprint. But from their press conferences and plenty of info from NFL sources, here are 10 things we learned about the Jets' plans while they were at the combine...

Jets GM on plans for cap space 00:01:04
New York Jets GM Mike Maccagnan discusses his team's major cap space and his plans to be aggressive in free agency this offseason.

When the new league year begins on March 13 and free agency officially opens up, the Jets are supposed to be one of the most aggressive teams after some of the top names on the market. And their GM, Mike Maccagnan, confirmed that at the NFL Combine on Wednesday. 

Maccagnan and his franchise have everything to work with this offseason to lure free agents: loads of cap space (estimated at about $102 million by OverTheCap.com), a fresh coaching staff that includes head coach Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams leading the way, and a young core that touts players like Sam Darnold and Jamal Adams. 

The Jets haven't been to the playoffs in three straight seasons, but that streak could end next season if the Jets land the players the desire on the market. Maccagnan said a plan is in place...

Over the next month or so, we're going to be reviewing some of the top draft prospects at each position to try and assess some potential candidates that the Jets will show interest in. We continue today with a look at the 2019 safety class.

Jets Needs: Safety

When the Jets used their first two picks on safeties in 2017, that made it unlikely the safety position would be considered a draft priority for the next few years, especially since Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye had such impressive rookie seasons. However, while Adams went from strength to strength in 2018, Maye had multiple injury issues, missing 10 starts.

The NFL's offseason is now underway it's going to be one of the most important in the history of the Jets' franchise. They have a new coach, they have a franchise quarterback, and they have about $100 million in salary cap room to spend on a relatively barren roster.

General Manager Mike Maccagnan can turn things around quickly. Or he could turn the Jets into an even bigger mess.

He's already begun making his plans to reshape the roster for the 2019 season, of course, and beginning Monday he can start to put that plan into action. The big day for the Jets will be the start of NFL free agency on March 13, but there will be plenty of cuts, restructured contracts and other maneuvers in the next few weeks as they get ready.

Jamal Adams is doing his best to sell the Jets to the free agent class of 2019, talking with agents, recruiting players on social media, and making a few calls to friends. It's good that the Jets have such a passionate ambassador.

Just don't expect his sales job to work.

Here's the truth about NFL free agency: There are only two things that matter to players on the market -- money (lots of it) and a chance to win a ring. Now the Jets do have plenty of money to spend and could be the high bidders on just about any player they desire.

Jamal Adams hasn't been shy while calling for the Jets to trade for Antonio Brown and sign Le'Veon Bell. On Wednesday, he went into detail about it.

And while many (including one former teammate) think the Jets should shy away from Brown because of his off-field issues, Adams made it clear he doesn't really care.

"Can he help us win? That's the main thing with me," Adams said Wednesday. "That should be the main thing with the organization."

Jamal Adams made waves last week when he tackled the Patriots mascot at the Pro Bowl. Gronk was asked about revenge at Super Bowl Media Day.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has a clear message for Jets safety Jamal Adams: An eye for an eye.

Gronkowski is nothing short of a team player and that helping hand extends to New England's mascot, Pat Patriot, after Adams mistakenly started beef with the five-time NFL champions.

With the 2019 coaching staff starting to take shape, let's assess whom the new Jets coaches could look to target, based on whom they've coached in the past.

Edge defender Robert Quinn, Miami

The 28-year old Quinn was the Dolphins' highest paid player last season and is widely expected to be a cap casualty during the offseason. If he is, expect the Jets to show interest because he was one player who played hard down the stretch for head coach Adam Gase. While he only ended up with 6.5 sacks, 5.5 of those came in the final seven games. Earlier in the year, Gase jumped to Quinn's defense, saying creating pressure was more important to the way the Dolphins were playing than recording sacks.

Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on Twitter: Last week, the Jets officially confirmed they had hired Gregg Williams to be the team's new defensive coordinator. Williams brings with him almost 30 years of NFL experience, but what effect will his system have on the Jets' players?

The first observation to make is that Williams is a fiery motivator who demands accountability from his players. While this was an approach that he took a step too far when he was suspended for a year due to his involvement in the "Bountygate" scandal, his players have said he's the type of coach that makes you want to run through a wall for him.

But he's not afraid to bench a high-profile player if they make a mistake, or not working hard enough in practice.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | ArchiveTodd Bowles came to the Jets with the reputation of being one of the best defensive minds in football. And in his first season, it was easy to see why. After that, it was all a steady roll downhill towards the Jets becoming one of the worst defenses in the league.

That's startling considering how they had invested in their defense. For eight straight years, before they took quarterback Sam Darnold, they had taken a defensive player in the first round of the draft. And they had spent big money on defenders in free agency like corners Trumaine Johnson and Morris Claiborne as well as linebacker Avery Williamson.

Yet they still had no pass rush and they wore down late in games. The Jets' defense was a remarkable group of underachievers.

In a since-deleted tweet, Jets S Jamal Adams wasn't shy about one free agent he wanted the team to pursue this offseason.

"Yeah I like #55 Dee Ford off that end for us! Let's pay him what he wants!" Adams tweeted at 7:28 p.m. on Saturday as Ford and the Chiefs were crushing the Colts to advance to the AFC Championship Game.

The 27-year-old Ford had a tremendous game on Sunday, with one forced fumble, one sack, and four tackles.

For the first time since 2011, the Jets have a player to be named to the AP All-Pro first team.

Kick returner Andre Roberts became the first Jet to receive that honor since Darrelle Revis when he was named as a cornerback.

The 30-year-old Roberts led the league with 1,174 kick return yards and was one of five players to return a kickoff for a touchdown. Only he and Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant returned both a kickoff and a punt for a touchdown in 2018.

Antonio Brown bad for Jets 00:01:15
Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has expressed he wants out. SNY's Willie Colon reveals why he would be bad for the New York Jets.

Rumors have been swirling around all week in the Steelers' camp that star WR Antonio Brown has ticked off the organization to the point where the team is willing to trade him. 

The Jets could very well be a landing spot if that was, in fact, the case. 

New York has the cap spaced (projected $100 million to work with this offseason), and Brown is just the No. 1 receiver the team is desperately looking to provide their franchise QB Sam Darnold with...

Jets CEO Christopher Johnson sees the Jets as a "really good spot" for a new head coach. They've got a franchise quarterback, "some great young players." And, of course, they're in New York.

"Some people will be attracted to (that), maybe some won't," Johnson said. "But if you make it here, you're a freakin' legend."

That's true. Whoever leads the Jets to their first Super Bowl in 50-plus years will be a sports immortal. That possibility could be attractive for some. Overall, the Jets can offer a pretty attractive situation regardless for a new coach.

The Jets head coaching search is in full swing and Adam Gase is up next to be interviewed for the position on Friday. 

With Gase in the picture, he joins another young, offensive-minded coach in Kliff Kingsbury among the candidates the Jets are interviewing. 

Both are thought to be offensive gurus who could help the development of Sam Darnold. Kingsbury already has the blessing of Jets Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams, but there are plenty of pros and cons to hiring both these men. SNY's Ralph Vacchiano takes a deeper look into weighing these two options:

After Jets safety Jamal Adams intimated he thinks USC offensive coordinator and former Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury is the best candidate to coach the Jets next season, he explained why:

Because he can help develop Sam Darnold.

"He's an offensive-minded coach," Adams said on WFAN's "Carlin, Maggie and Bart" show, according to Newsday's Al Iannazzone. "He's going to bring swagger. He's going to develop Sam into a great quarterback. Look at his track record."
