Jets Still Talking With Demaryius Thomas

The New York Jets are still talking to free-agent wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. The 32-year-old former Denver Bronco doesn't have much left in the tank at this point in his career, catching only 36 passes (58 targets) for 433 yards and one touchdown in his 11 games for the Jets last year. It's a far cry from when he compiled five straight 1,000-yard campaigns from 2012 to 2016 with the Broncos. New York's receiving corps isn't all that strong with Breshad Perriman, Jamison Crowder and rookie Denzel Mims as the top three wideouts, but DT would likely battle for the fourth-receiver gig with the likes of Josh Doctson and Vyncint Smith. Thomas won't be relevant in New York unless injuries open up a more prominent role for him.

Le'Veon Bell Working Hard In The Training Room

New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell has been "training like a mad man" this offseason. After holding out for all of 2018, Bell signed with the Jets and had the worst full season of his career, rushing for 789 yards and three touchdowns on 245 carries (career-low 3.2 yards per carry). He also added 66 receptions for 461 yards and another touchdown. Gang Green's putrid offensive line didn't do him any favors, but is the 28-year-old no longer an RB1? It doesn't help that head coach Adam Gase isn't a big fan of Bell, and veteran Frank Gore and rookie Lamical Perine could take away some touches. His production in the passing game helps his cause and the offensive line is upgraded, but Bell should be considered a low-end RB2 in this offense.

Connor McGovern Thinks Le'Veon Bell Is Special

New York Jets center Connor McGovern thinks running back Le'Veon Bell is "a special player" despite disappointing with only 789 rushing yards and 3.2 yards per carry in 2019. The Jets brought in seven new offensive lineman this offseason in hopes of improving a unit that was one of the league's worst last season. McGovern is learning his fifth offense in as many seasons, but he's familiar with head coach Adam Gase's zone-blocking scheme from his time in Denver as a rookie. Bell, 28, will fall down draft boards because of his weak season in his first year with Gang Green, but this will present value opportunity for savvy fantasy owners. Bell may never be the runner he was with Pittsburgh in Gase's system, but he'll at least be a safe RB2 at a reduced cost in 2020.

Adam Gase Wants Jamal Adams To Stick Around

New York Jets head coach Adam Gase was asked if he wanted All-Pro safety Jamal Adams on the team in 2020. "Yes, I want Jamal on our team," Gase said. Adams has been in an ongoing contract dispute with the team and requested a trade last week. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams made similar comments on Thursday. Adams wants to be paid like a top defender in the league and wants a new deal before the 2020 season, but the Jets are in no rush to make a move, as they have Adams under contract for another two seasons. Gang Green hasn't given the 24-year-old permission to seek out a trade. He has made two Pro Bowls and one All-Pro team and will make $3.6 million this year and $9.9 million in 2021. It remains to be seen if the two sides will reconcile, but either way, Adams is the top fantasy defensive back in IDP leagues.

Gregg Williams Wants To Keep Jamal Adams Around

New York Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams doesn't want All-Pro safety Jamal Adams going anywhere after he asked for a trade. He has to handle his contract, Williams said. Hell do all that kind of stuff Im hoping everything goes well. I love coaching him. And I got his back. Adams was tied for the team lead in tackles for loss (10, pass deflections (seven), quarterback hits (13) and forced fumbles (two) last season under Williams. He also finished first in solo tackles (61) and second in total tackles (75) and sacks (6.5) despite missing two games. The 24-year-old is one of the best safeties in the game already and should be considered the top IDP safety for fantasy owners because of his ability to play in coverage, stop the run, play as a linebacker and rush the passer. The Jets would be losing their best defender if they end up trading him.
