Jets Had Highs & Lows in the Trenches

Looking Ahead
If all are healthy, there’s nothing wrong with the experience of, from LT to RT, Kelvin Beachum (16 starts in his seventh pro season), Carpenter (eighth-year man with 58 starts in his four Jets seasons), Long/Harrison at center (combined 10 pro seasons), Brian Winters (sixth-year pro who just completed his first 16-start campaign) and Shell (third-year man with 26 starts the past two years)

But Carpenter and Harrison can become unrestricted free agents as can Jets multiyear contributors Ben Ijalana, Brent Qvale and Dakota Dozier.

New Jets HC Adam Gase made a few changes to Miami’s OL starters the previous three years as the Dolphins transitioned from Branden Albert to 2016 first-round pick Laremy Tunsil at LT, and from longtime ‘Fins C Mike Pouncey and longtime NFL guard Jermon Bushrod last year.

So it will be interesting to see how GM Mike Maccagnan, Gase and his coaches rework the Jets line as the new coach addresses protecting Darnold at a sub-4.0% sack rate, where Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Andrew Luck resided in 2018, while working on ways to get greater run-game consistency.
