New York Jets sign WR Terrelle Pryor

According to Calvin Watkins of Newsday Sports, the New York Jets have officially signed WR Terrelle Pryor.

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor will join a Jets WR corps that features Robby Anderson, Jermain Kearse, and Quincy Enunwa. After a breakout campaign at receiver as a Cleveland Brown in 2016, in which he caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns, Pryor struggled to cement himself in Washington's offense last season, while also dealing with injuries. He only appeared in nine games, catching 20 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown.

A healthy Pryor would help the Jets' passing game and be another weapon for whoever starts under center—be it Josh McCown or a highly-drafted rookie.

We have a trade to announce: the New York Jets have traded a 2018 first round pick (sixth overall), two 2018 second round picks (37 and 49 overall), and a 2019 second round pick to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the third overall pick in this year's draft. If the Jets want to draft one of the top-tier QB prospects, they now have a much better chance of landing one.

After adding Niles Paul earlier, the Jaguars have signed another tight in Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Fantasy Impact:

Last season turned out to be a comeback season for ASJ, who flashed the potential many saw in him when the Buccaneers used a second-round pick to draft him in 2014.

ASJ set career-highs in targets (74), catches (50), and yards (357) in only 13 games last season. Paul, Marcedes Lewis, and ASJ top the Jaguars' tight end depth chart.

RB Carlos Hyde to sign with the Cleveland Browns

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

A day after losing Isaiah Crowell to the New York Jets, the Cleveland Browns are bringing in former 49er Carlos Hyde. According to Ian Rapoport, it's a three-year deal worth over $15 million.

Fantasy Impact:

Thanks to catching 59 passes, Hyde was the No. 8 fantasy scoring back last season in PPR leagues. He has yet to crack 1,000 yards rushing, but thanks to his receptions and touchdowns (86 catches and 17 total touchdowns) the last two seasons, Hyde has been a fantasy relevant RB. He could provide useful yet again this season, but with Duke Johnson on the team, and the possible drafting of Saquon Barkley, the touches may be limited in an RBBC situation.

QB Teddy Bridgewater to sign with the New York Jets

Chris Mortensen - [Full Article]

The Jets re-signed Josh McCown earlier today to a one-year deal worth $10 million, and it was later reported he would be the team's starting QB in 2018. They will also add Teddy Bridgewater to their QB depth chart.

Fantasy Impact:

Bridgewater has only made one appearance the last two seasons (two pass attempts) after suffering a brutal knee injury. If the McCown news is to be believed, Bridgewater will compete for the No. 2 QB spot. The Jets also own the No. 6 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and could take one of the top QB prospects. The Jets' offseason QB battle will be a storyline to follow.

CB Trumaine Johnson to sign with the New York Jets

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 7:07pm

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

The New York Jets are about to add some much-needed help in the secondary with the signing of CB Trumaine Johnson. The exact terms of the deal have not been made public yet, but Ian Rapoport reports it will be in the vicinity of $15 million per year.

Jets to re-sign QB Josh McCown

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 4:40pm

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

With talk of the Jets possibly signing QB Teddy Bridgewater, they have decided to bring back Josh McCown. It's a one-year, $10 million deal for McCown.

Fantasy Impact:

If the Jets don't sign Teddy Bridgewater or draft a rookie early in the 2018 NFL Draft to challenge McCown for the starting job then he could make for an appealing late-round QB2 in 2QB or Superflex leagues. Last season, McCown finished as the No. 20 fantasy scoring QB and put up over 200 fantasy points as a Jet.

Jets RB Matt Forte retiring

Matt Forte - [Full Article]

Via Twitter, Matt Forte has retired from the NFL

Fantasy Impact:

Forte was set to enter free agency. Coming off an injury-riddled season and two seasons with 3.7 YPC, Forte realized that it was time to hang 'em up.

Packers hire Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator

Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 10:16am

Packers News - [Full Article]

Mike McCarthy’s search to fill his vacant defensive coordinator’s job ended suddenly after nine days when the Green Bay Packers coach chose former Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine to succeed Dom Capers.

Pettine, 51, was out of football in 2016 after compiling a 10-22 record in two seasons as coach of the Cleveland Browns and spent this past season as a defensive consultant with the Seattle Seahawks.

McCarthy had interest in Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, but it appears Fangio is going to stick with the Bears. He also asked for permission to speak with Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, but never got to interview him. Bradley agreed to return to the Chargers Tuesday night.

Along the way to his head-coaching job, Pettine was part of some of the NFL’s top defenses. From ’09-12, the Jets ranked 1st, 3rd, 5th and 8th in overall defense. Ryan received most of the credit for the Jets’ great defenses, but a story said that Ryan turned over much of the responsibility of the defense to Pettine after the 2009 season.

In 2013, after Pettine went to Buffalo, the Bills ranked 10th in defense.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story mentioned, Pettine's defenses in New York and Buffalo all ranked top 10 in yards allowed, though they were 20th in points allowed in three straight seasons (two in New York and one in Buffalo). There may be some growing pains along the way, but this looks like a good hire for Green Bay.

Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ribs, foot, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 17.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Jets WR JoJo Natson (shoulder) took full practice reps all week.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Jets WR Jermaine Kearse (ankle) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week. It looks like Kearse is good to go to face the Patriots.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Jets WR Robby Anderson (illness) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Anderson will play against the Patriots. He’s not a bad start though the Patriots will be very focused on limiting his looks given the current state of the Jets’ offense.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Jets RB Akeem Judd (ankle, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 17.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 17. Forte will probably play through the knee injury again this week.
