As a defensive back for the team from 2015-18, Buster Skrine has seen the Jets' quarterbacks firsthand across four years in New York.

Now with the Chicago Bears, Skrine discussed where his former team is heading under Sam Darnold.

Skrine returned to MetLife Stadium on Friday for week two of the preseason in the Bears' 32-13 loss to the Giants. After the game, he spoke to Darryl Slater of NJ Advance Media and had high praise for his former quarterback.

The Jets announced Wednesday that cornerback Brian Poole has been added to the Active/Non-Football Injury list. This means they are a man down in the secondary for Thursday morning's practice and will continue to be until he's reactivated.

Listing him in that way doesn't save the Jets a roster spot and he can be activated at any time, as soon as he's ready to practice. It's merely a precautionary measure against him suffering further setbacks and remaining out for an extended time. Since Poole evidently showed up with the injury rather than suffering it during organized team activities, the team could in theory part ways with Poole in such a scenario without being on the hook for his salary. 
 
The reality is that this likely isn't particularly serious and the Jets could see Poole back soon. However, even if he returns within the next few days, he will have lost ground in the battle to earn the nickelback role he's been projected to win since the Jets signed him to a one-year, $3 million deal back in March.

There is widespread concern that the cornerback position could be a weakness for the Jets in the upcoming season. With roles available, could someone unexpected step up and become a key contributor?

Following the NFL draft, the Jets 90-man roster is starting to take shape. While GM Mike Maccagnan suggested he'll keep looking for opportunities to improve the roster, some of the main position battles ahead are starting to come into focus. In some cases, that's as a result of players they drafted, but some of them were made all the more interesting due to those areas that went unaddressed.

The Jets and cornerback Brian Poole have agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million contract, according to multiple reports.

The 26-year-old joins the Jets after spending three seasons with the Falcons, who did not tender the restricted free agent. Poole should replace Buster Skrine as the Jets' slot corner after Skrine signed with Chicago

With the exception of a couple of vague tweets heard 'round the NFL, Le'Veon Bell was one of the quietest free agents in the league on Monday. If the Jets were looking to make some noise by signing the NFL's No. 1 free agent, it looks like they're going to have to wait.

For the moment, as multiple NFL sources told SNY, the Jets are believed to be the favorite to land the 27-year-old running back. But the truth is, only Bell knows for sure for whom he will toll. He said on Twitter he had more than two teams to choose from. The Jets, 49ers, Eagles, Raiders, Dolphins and Bears had all been mentioned as possible destinations.

Former Jets cornerback Buster Skrine will sign a three-year, $16.5 million deal with $8.5 million guaranteed with the Chicago Bears, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapaport.

Skrine, 30, spent the past four seasons with the Jets, recording 222 combined tackles, three interceptions, 30 passes defensed and three forced fumbles in 59 games.

Last year, Skrine totaled 58 combined tackles and eight passes defensed in 14 games (11 starts).

With the start of the new league year just around the corner, Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has said the Jets - with approximately $100 million of cap room - will be "very active in free agency." Let's review some of the top free agents who could be targets.

Edge Rusher: Dante Fowler, Los Angeles Rams

The Jets have coveted a difference-making pass rusher for some time, although they might be tempted to wait for the draft. With several players having been tagged, the market has thinned out a bit, but Fowler is one of a few available players the Jets have been linked to.

The Jets now have the No. 3 overall pick in the draft, and they could take Ohio State pass rusher Nick Bosa, but there are still plenty of other NFL prospects who will be on their radar during the 41 bowl games. And not just Top 5 players either, since the possibility exists that the Jets will trade down.

With all that in mind, here are just a few of the players the Jets should, and probably will be watching and scouting during bowl season:

Jets lose 44-37 in OT 00:01:12
Jets lost 44-38 in OT to the Packers. Some felt questionable calls by the refs didn't help while others said there are no excuses.

Todd Bowles and the Jets were critical of officials after Sunday's 44-38 overtime loss to the Packers at MetLife Stadium.

"I thought we were playing two teams," the Jets head coach told reporters after Sunday's game. "I thought we were playing the Packers and the striped shirts."

The Jets were flagged 16 times for 172 yards in the game, while Green Bay was called for 10 penalties for 86 yards.

Though Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold practiced in full on Friday, head coach Todd Bowles did not say whether or not Darnold will start Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

"We'll decide that on Sunday," Bowles said, according to SNY.tv's Ralph Vacchiano. "Both he and Josh (McCown) had good weeks."

Darnold, who has practiced in full the past two days, is expected to make his return from a foot injury that has kept him out the past three games. But Bowles has played his cards close to his hand and won't name a starter until the day of the game.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: The Jets, at 3-8, have nothing left to play for but their future over the last five weeks of the season. And with tons of pending free agents, their future could look a lot different than their present.

While they have some important core pieces in place -- quarterback Sam Darnold, safety Jamal Adams, defensive end Leonard Williams, for example -- they are still heading into an offseason that could see yet another complete overhaul of their roster. The Jets have $100 million or so in salary cap room to spend in free agency.

They also have 23 unrestricted free agents (and two restricted free agents) of their own.

The Jets head to the bye week with a 3-7 record after a humiliating 41-10 loss to the Bills. Let's review three of the best and worst performances from Sunday's game.

Losers

QB Josh McCown

In his first start since last December, McCown was disappointingly erratic. He went just 17-for-34 with two interceptions, as he had five passes batted down at the line of scrimmage. Most of his 134 yards came in garbage time, as he averaged just four yards per attempt. Moreover, the majority of those yards came after the catch as the Jets ran an uninspiring horizontal passing offense.

The Jets continue to be decimated with injuries. 

WR Robby Anderson (ankle) and CB Trumaine Johnson (quad) were ruled doubtful in Friday's injury report for Sunday's game against the Bears. 

WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle) will also miss his second straight game, leaving Sam Darnold without two of his biggest threats in the passing game.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Jets could have made a huge statement by beating the Minnesota Vikings, a true NFC contender, in what would've been their biggest victory of the season. And the Jets' defense did all it could to make it happen.

But in the end, the Jets learned what should have been obvious:

Sam Darnold isn't ready to be a contender just yet...

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle) will play Sunday against the Vikings. Crowell had 13 carries in Week 6 while dealing with an ankle injury. He missed multiple practices during the week but returned in a limited capacity on Friday.

Crowell racked up 219 rushing yards in the Jets' win over the Broncos in Week 5 and has totaled 430 yards on the ground in six games this season.

While Crowell is in, the Jets will be without CB Trumaine Johnson, CB Buster Skrine, CB Derrick Jones, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, and DL Foley Fatukasi...

Jets talk 42-34 victory 00:01:09
Jamal Adams, Sam Darnold, Jermaine Kearse, Chris Herndon and Todd Bowles talk about the positives after a huge win over the Colts, 42-34.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - As the Jets celebrated the 50th anniversary of their last Super Bowl championship team, Sam Darnold gave them even more reason to believe that the next one won't be too far off.

The 21-year-old Darnold, in his first real shootout against a top tier NFL quarterback, out-played Andrew Luck on Sunday afternoon. He completed 24 of 30 passes for 280 yards with two touchdowns and one interception to lead the Jets to a 42-27 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Luck was pretty good too (23 of 43, 301 yards and 4 touchdowns), except for the fact that he threw three interceptions. He also even nearly engineered a second-half comeback but fell an onside kickoff recovery short. But overall, Darnold was the more impressive quarterback for most of the game, after he shook off a shaky start. He did get help from a Jets defense that forced four turnovers, but the running game wasn't nearly as good as it has been...

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle) will play in Sunday's game against the Colts.

Crowell, who was a game-time decision, was limited in practice earlier in the week. 

The 25-year-old Crowell is coming off a record-breaking game in Week 5 when he had a Jets-record 219 rushing yards and added a 12-yard reception in the Jets' win over the Broncos.

Jets cornerback Buster Skrine suffered a concussion in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, head coach Todd Bowles said.

Skrine walked off the field with trainers following a play in the first quarter and did not return to the game.

The 29-year-old Skrine recorded three total tackles and one pass defensed prior to leaving the game. He was playing in place of the injured Trumaine Johnson, who was inactive with a quadriceps injury.

The Jets suffered a dispiriting 31-12 loss on the road in Jacksonville on Sunday afternoon. Let's break down how each unit performed...

Quarterbacks

Sam Darnold didn't throw an interception this week, although he had one negated by a penalty flag. He only completed 50 percent of his passes and was sacked three times as the Jets were shut out in the first half and didn't get into the end zone until the fourth quarter. Darnold missed on some deep balls, which could have made the game closer...

Jets WR Terrelle Pyor injured his groin during practice on Thursday, head coach Todd Bowles said, adding his availability for Sunday's game against the Jaguars will depend on how he responds to treatment in the coming days.

Along with Pryor, S Marcus Maye (foot), S Doug Middleton, and CB Buster Skrine were all limited at practice, while WR Charone Peake and TE Neal Sterling (concussion) were both out.

Maye has missed the first three games of the season.

The Jets blew a 14-0 lead and lost 21-17 to the Browns on Thursday night. Let's break down how each unit performed.

Quarterbacks

Rookie Sam Darnold had his worst game so far, although he was arguably somewhat hamstrung by an overly conservative game plan. He completed 15 of 31 passes for 169 yards and threw two interceptions.

The Jets suffered a disheartening 20-12 defeat to the Dolphins in their home opener on Sunday afternoon. Let's break down how each unit performed.

Quarterbacks

While Sam Darnold passed for over 330 yards and a touchdown, the Jets missed several opportunities to get back into the game. There is cause for concern over Darnold's ability to see the field as he didn't anticipate a safety sitting on the route on his first interception and failed to see a couple of wide-open receivers that were open for potential big plays...

The Jets opened their season in improbable fashion as they beat down the Lions 48-17 in Week 1 in Detroit. Here are grades for each unit...

Quarterbacks

Rookie Sam Darnold couldn't have had a worse start as his awful first pass was intercepted and returned for a score. But once his "Welcome to the NFL moment" was out of the way, he settled down nicely and had an efficient performance. He completed a deep ball -- something he didn't get a chance to do in the preseason -- for a touchdown to Robby Anderson and made some good throws on the move.

The missing piece for the Jets finally seems to be in place, now that Sam Darnold has arrived as the young, franchise quarterback they've been dreaming of for decades. And that's what this summer is all about for the Jets: The growth of Darnold, and how quickly he'll really arrive.

That process begins on Thursday, when the full team is due to report to camp -- assuming Darnold has signed his rookie contract by then. Everything else around the Jets is window dressing, part of the slow, steady rebuilding effort with an eye on maybe contending next season.

Darnold, though, is the key. So how will he do, and will the rest of camp go for the Jets? Here are five bold predictions for what to expect between now and Opening Day...

The Jets were competitive again, as they have been in every home game this year, but struggled to generate enough offense or any impact plays on defense in Sunday's 14-7 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Meanwhile, the Chargers managed to keep their playoff hopes alive in a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 18 punts. For New York, there's the sense that the conclusion of the season next week will predominantly be a relief to players and coaches alike.

Let's start this week by breaking down the performances on the defensive side of the ball:

Despite being heavy underdogs, the Jets gave a solid account of themselves this week, exploiting some sloppy play from the Saints to make Sunday's game competitive deep into the fourth quarter. In the end, the Saints' offensive playmaking abilities were too much for the Jets to keep up with, but at least they quieted those critics who had been saying they'd get blown out again.

Let's review the defensive performance from Sunday's loss:

The Jets overcame a shaky start to break out of their slump with their finest offensive performance of the season so far against the Chiefs. A late touchdown by Josh McCown gave the Jets the lead and the defense held on to preserve a 38-31 shootout win.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It's hard to call them the "same old Jets" because things aren't as bad and dysfunctional as they've been in the past. They are building something, even if the growing pains are increasingly painful.

But Sunday's loss, on the heels of a string of bad losses, sure did have the "same old" feel.

How else to explain the Jets once again holding their own against one of the better teams in the NFL only to maddeningly throw it all away in the fourth quarter, this time with their already thin playoff hopes clinging to the line? Their 35-27 home loss to the Carolina Panthers was their fifth loss in six games, and it felt like all the others. If only they hadn't made so many mind-boggling mistakes at key points late in the game.

Jets CB Buster Skrine was fined $48,620 for his hit on Bucs WR DeSean Jackson last Sunday, per SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

The third quarter hit on Jackson yielded an unnecessary roughness penalty. It was the 11th time this season Skrine has been penalized, which is the most by any defensive player in the NFL. 

It is also the second time Skrine has been fined this season. He was docked for a hit on Raiders RB DeAndre Washington in Week 2.

After the win against Buffalo, there was a lot of hype about the "resurgent" Jets and some talk of Todd Bowles as a coach of the year candidate. However, after yesterday's dispiriting loss, the reality is that the Jets have lost four of five with their only win coming over a Bills team whose 37-point loss to the Saints yesterday suggests they have been overrated. Heading to the bye, it's probably time to reset our expectations.

Let's start this week by breaking down the performances on the defensive side of the ball...

Davis interviews Lee after win 00:01:28
Demario Davis interviews fellow linebacker Darron Lee after the Jets' win over the Buffalo Bills.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- On the Jets' first defensive play, linebacker Jordan Jenkins broke through the line of scrimmage and dragged Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor down at the 4-yard line. For a team that has had an underachieving pass rush for the first half of the season, that was a significant moment.

It also sent a significant message.

"It said, 'We're coming,'" Jenkins said.

They certainly were. And they never stopped.

THE GAME

The Buffalo Bills (5-2) at the Jets (3-5) at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J., on Thursday, Nov. 2 at 8:25 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

It feels like fall has finally arrived, but it actually shouldn't be too terrible for this game. The kickoff temperature should be in the low 60s with minimal winds in the forecast. If you sat through Sunday's slop -- And really, if you did: Why? -- this will feel like a Hawaiian vacation...
