The Jets began the reshaping of their roster and the first of what could be many moves to help clear salary cap space on Thursday as they released two veterans -- kicker Nick Folk and right tackle Breno Giacomini.

The moves clear about $7.5 million in salary cap space and leave the Jets somewhere around $10 million under the projected NFL salary cap. They were actually over until last week, when they declined to pick up the option on veteran left tackle Ryan Clady.

SNY's weekly look at the top players on board for the Jets as they prepare to make the sixth overall pick of the NFL draft on April 27, complete with who's rising and who's falling throughout the process and as the Jets' potential needs change:

1.) CB Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State - The ides of the Jets taking a cornerback sixth overall seemed logical even before Darrelle Revis was charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor after a street fight in Pittsburgh 10 days ago. He probably wasn't coming back anyway, certainly not as a corner, but the incident amplified the need at his position. The combine next week will help solidify Lattimore's status as a Top 10 player. It even could push him out of the Jets' reach and into the Top 5. (Last week: 1)...

Darrelle Revis' future with the Jets was in doubt even before he was charged with four felonies for an incident outside a Pittsburgh bar back on Feb. 12. His cost, his skills, his age were all conspiring against him, and by March 11 he was surely going to end up an ex-Jet.

But while the Jets have some young corners on their roster, they don't necessarily have Revis' heir - the next shutdown corner to help lockdown their struggling secondary. Many NFL people believe they're most likely to look to the draft for Revis' replacement. But free agency could present some intriguing possibilities.

Here is a look at a few:

CB Stephon Gilmore (Bills) - For a cap-strapped team, they probably can't dip this deep into the free agent pool, especially if they decide to spend (or overspend) for a quarterback. But if they can't get one of the top quarterbacks or decide to go through the draft at that position, a free-agent corner would be a big help. And while Gilmore, 26, is no Revis-in-his-prime, he's the best on the market. The Pro Bowler had five interceptions this season and that could land him in the range of the five-year, $62.5 million deal the Giants gave Janoris Jenkins last offseason (with $28.8 million guaranteed). Of course, that's if he hits the market. He may get franchise-tagged by the Bills.

GEICO SportsNite: Darrelle Revis 00:00:19
Darrelle Revis had his preliminary hearing regarding his altercation in Pittsburgh rescheduled for March 15.

Darrelle Revis' next court appearance, which was scheduled for Thursday, will now take place six days after the start of NFL free agency -- complicating the Jets' decision even more.

The preliminary hearing for Revis to answer the charges he's been hit with stemming from an incident in Pittsburgh back on Feb. 12 was officially postponed on Tuesday afternoon and rescheduled for March 15. The hearing will take place at 12:30 p.m. in front of Judge Jeffrey Manning, and Revis is obligated to appear in person -- assuming that hearing takes place.

A lot can happen between now and then, including a plea deal, another continuation, or the charges being dropped altogether. For now, though, Revis remains charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count each of making terroristic threats, robbery, and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault as a result of an apparent street fight nine days ago that left two men knocked out on a street corner around 2:30 a.m...

New video emerges in Revis saga 00:03:06
TMZ released a video which may add new information to the Darrelle Revis assault case.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

Darrelle Revis "absolutely" did not knock out two men on a street in Pittsburgh in the early morning hours of Feb. 12 and the voice heard bragging about it on a video of the aftermath of the incident was "NOT" Revis' voice, his attorneys said.

Their denial and defense of the Jets cornerback came on Sunday night, hours after a video was published on TMZ.com that allegedly showed the aftermath of the incident that ended with Revis facing a variety of charges from Pittsburgh police. The video shows two men on the ground, seemingly unconscious, and a voice can be heard saying "I knocked both of these m---f-ers out."

Then what sounds like the same voice can be heard saying "Shut up before I knock you're a-out next."

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

As bad as Darrelle Revis was last season, he kept insisting he was far from finished. Several times he made it clear he wanted to keep playing and was even willing to see if that could happen with the Jets. He seemed to be embracing his role as a future elder statesman on the team. He hinted he might accept a pay cut to stay. He even admitted he was willing to switch positions.

None of that matters anymore.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The incident that has surely ended Darrelle Revis' Jets career, and could land him in jail, began with two star-struck men who seemingly couldn't believe they had run into the NFL player on the streets of Pittsburgh in the middle of the night. They asked if he was really Revis. They didn't believe his answer.

And everything escalated from there.

Much of the confrontation from early Sunday morning is on a cell phone video, too, according to the criminal complaint filed with the Pittsburgh Police and obtained by WTAE in Pittsburgh. The evidence was strong enough for Revis to be charged on Thursday with four felonies (two counts of aggravated assault and one each of criminal conspiracy and robbery) and one misdemeanor (making terroristic threats)...

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

Each week, SNY will put a current player, a position, or perhaps a draft or free agent target of the Jets in the spotlight as part of our regular offseason coverage. Last week we took a look at Jay Cutler, the Chicago Bears quarterback who might hit the open market in the coming weeks. This week we turn inward and look at a proud Jet who is at the center of one of the team's biggest offseason decisions:

CB Darrelle Revis.

After a miserable season in which he was a shell of his former self it seems like a pretty simple decision for the Jets to let Darrelle Revis go -- especially since he's due $15 million in salary and bonuses in 2017 and his cap number is $15.3 million...

The NFL offseason may be off to a slow start, but things are surely about to pick up with cuts and contract restructures on their way, and with the scouting combine just two weeks away.

With that in mind, here is our weekly look at some of the biggest questions facing the Jets, what's new about them, where they stand on finding an answer, and if any of the issues have changed.

1. Who is their quarterback?

They of course haven't answered this yet, but they did answer who'll be coaching the quarterbacks: new offensive coordinator John Morton and new quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates. Neither has an extensive resume at their current positions -- or really working with quarterbacks -- which is interesting if they're going to be entrusted with developing a young quarterback.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV:

As miserable as the Jets' 5-11 season was their consolation prize isn't bad. They stand to get a heck of a player with the sixth overall pick in the 2017 draft - perhaps a franchise-changing player, and maybe someone who can contribute right away.

That's no guarantee, of course, but it's a positive to focus on for a team that needs a lot of help in a lot of different areas. Maybe - just maybe - they could end up with the franchise quarterback they've been seeking for far too many years.

It's early, of course - very early - and a lot can change during free agency. But here's a look at five players the Jets might have their eyes on in the first round of the NFL draft, which takes place on April 27. SNY will be taking a weekly look at this board and charting who is rising and falling throughout the combine and Pro Day season, and as the Jets' potential needs change:

Now that the Super Bowl is over, the New York Jets can begin cleaning up the wreckage from their 5-11 season and start yet another rebuilding project. Despite being on the cusp of the playoffs a year ago, they seem farther away than ever now.

With that in mind, here are some of the biggest questions the Jets must answer this offseason. We'll check back in each week to see how they're doing, whether any of the questions have been answered, and whether any have changed:

It has been 48 years and two weeks since the Jets shook up the world and changed the NFL with their victory in Super Bowl III, and they have since taken their fans on a long, depressing and at times torturous run. It's been so painful at times that it's easy to forget the Jets went to back-to-back AFC championship games just six years ago.

Of course, since then they've brought the pain: Six straight seasons without a playoff berth, only one season with a winning record, and it was all capped off by a miserable 5-11 season that felt worse since the Jets had so much optimism after going 10-6 in 2015.

New Jets defensive backs coach Dennard Wilson believes Darrelle Revis could play safety, according to NJ.com. Wilson was hired by the Jets last week after holding the same position with the St. Louis and Los Angeles Rams the last two seasons.

"Darrelle is a guy that has a lot of football intelligence," Wilson said. "I wouldn't think it wouldn't be a problem for him to pick it up. ... I understand the nuances of it and the difficulties of playing it. Once you figure it out, and figure out your way around it, it's football." 

Playing his customary cornerback position, Revis tied a career low with one interception and his five defended passes in 15 games were the fewest of his career.

The Jets have hired defensive backs coach Dennard Wilson, the team announced Wednesday.

Wilson, 34, was the Rams' DBs coach this past season.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

Position coaches often fly under the radar, but don't ignore the impact of this one because Dennard Wilson has a big job ahead of him. He has to rebuild a Jets secondary that was a mess last season, and he'll have to do it either without Darrelle Revis or with Revis trying to transition from cornerback to safety.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

Coming off a miserable season, the Jets are in a difficult offseason position. They don't project to have much cap room, at least until they start cutting some high-priced players. And whatever cap room they do create might have to be spent on the quarterback they so obviously and desperately need.

And since they'll have to replace many of the players they cut, they may not have much room to re-sign their own players. The good news, though, is coming off a miserable, 5-11 season it's not like they have a lot of unrestricted free agents they absolutely can't live without.

There are a couple worth bringing back, though. Here's a look at their list of free agents, and how hard they might try to re-sign them...

We've looked at some of the roster decisions facing the Jets as we head into the offseason over the past few weeks. Readers overwhelmingly voted to keep Eric DeckerNick Mangold and David Harris and to dump Darrelle Revis, but were torn on Brandon Marshall and Sheldon Richardson. How about some of the other decisions facing the front office and coaching staff?

Of course young players like Leonard Williams and Darron Lee or players that performed well in 2016 like James Carpenter and Bilal Powell will return in 2017, but that about those whose performance was more disappointing?

Cornerback Darrelle Revis finished off the 2016 season with 53 combined tackles but had just one turnover (an interception), which came in the final week of the regular season. 

All year, the 31-year-old corner dealt with questions about his inconsistent play and effort. He has three years left under his current deal and would not become an unrestricted free agent until 2020, when he is 34. 

So, should he stay or should he go?

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said he was disappointed with the team's 5-11 finish this season, and wouldn't put a timetable on when they would be a perennial contender.

"We're obviously not happy with our record. But I do think we made some progress [with the youth]," Maccagnan told reporters while alluding to players such as OL Brandon Shell and CB Juston Burris. "We have some pieces we feel good about."

Maccagnan said he felt comfortable signing Ryan Fitzpatrick this past offseason, noting that all options -- internal and external -- will be on the table for 2017 at quarterback.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The words came from his heart and the intent was to inspire, even if the sincerity and the message was often lost on some of his teammates. That was the problem Brandon Marshall faced this season. He wanted to unite his teammates. He divided them instead.

It's not that the Jets' locker room problems were his fault -- not by a longshot -- but there's no doubt the veteran receiver was in the center of it for much of the miserable, 5-11 season.

Marshall on 2016 struggles 00:03:55
Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall discusses a disappointing 2016 season and where he feels his NFL career is going moving forward.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Though he called this "probably my most frustrating year" in the NFL, and though he at times became a polarizing figure in his own locker room, Brandon Marshall made it clear he wants to be back with the Jets next season. He even joked "I'll play for free."

Now the Jets have to decide if the 32-year-old receiver with the declining production and controversial leadership style is worth bringing back, even at that price.

Marshall, of course, believes he is even after one of his least productive seasons - 59 catches for 788 yards and three touchdowns. But his lack of production is only part of his equation. Marshall is due $7.5 million next season -- a bargain for an "elite" receiver, but otherwise a hefty price. And perhaps more importantly, he spent much of this season in the eye of the Jets' locker room storm.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The "dark cloud" that Darrelle Revis said hung over the Jets for most of the season caused a fractured locker room that never seemed to heal. And at least one Jet is convinced that the cloud of internal problems led directly to the team's miserable, losing year.

"It didn't help us," receiver Quincy Enunwa said on Monday. "You look at our record, it really hindered our play. A big reason for that is when you see the bad things that are going on, you kind of feel like you almost lose your purpose. You go into the season and you don't want to play for self. You want to play for team. But when team doesn't feel like a team, then you've got to start playing for self."

That is a damning assessment, and it seems to sum up the 5-11 Jets perfectly - a team that never really seemed like a team. They all came into the season feeling, as Enunwa said, "that we were a really good team." Then they were blown out in Kansas City in Week 3 and that served as a flashpoint for their new reality.

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis said he is open to moving to safety and hopes to return to the team next season following a disappointing 2016 season and comments that the organization should treat him "with class."

Revis, who in mid-December said he would not transition to safety during the 2016 season, said he and head coach Todd Bowles have had "a small talk or two" about a possible move to safety, but Bowles said he would not discuss any player heading into the offseason.

"If we have that discussion and make that (move) going forward he'll have the challenges of just moving from corner to safety," Bowles said after the Jets' season-ending 30-10 win over the Buffalo Bills. "Most of the instincts stuff is still the same, but we'll see. We haven't made any decisions or had concrete discussions going forward."

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis said he thinks he's "done enough" for the organization to treat the rest of his time with the franchise "with class" as he finishes his second year of a five-year deal with the Jets.

Revis, in an interview with the New York Post's Mike Cannizzaro, believes he is an all-time player in franchise history and should be treated as such despite him losing a step and not playing at the level of cornerback the Jets saw from him when they drafted him in 2007.

"I've been one of the best cornerbacks to ever play this game," Revis told Cannizzaro. "I've done a lot of things in this league that a lot of guys currently playing are chasing now.

"Would I love to be here? Yes. Will I be back? That's a great question. My thing would be this: Do the New York Jets want to treat my situation with class or no class? With me being one of the best players in the history of this franchise, do they want me to retire here or not retire here?"

WHAT IT MEANS: Well, it's a big one for Bryce Petty, I guess. And for any Jets fans not interested in draft position, it would probably be a nice almost-ending to a miserable season to beat the Patriots. Other than that, I've got nothing.

THE GAME: The Miami Dolphins (8-5) at the Jets (4-9) at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J. on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 8:25 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER: The good news, I guess, is that there probably won't be many people showing up to endure this, so there'll be plenty of places for you to take cover inside the stadium. The bad news? The day will be an ugly mix of rain and snow and wind. Probably mostly rain on Saturday night as temperatures actually warm up into the low 40s. But the rain should be pretty steady. So … enjoy!

WHAT IT MEANS: For the Jets, it's nothing but a glimpse of the future. It's Start No. 2 for QB Bryce Petty, who got off to a rough start last week in San Francisco but ended up with decent numbers and an overtime win against a truly, truly awful team. The Dolphins are quite the step up in class.

Jets CB Darrelle Revis will not begin his transition to safety during the team's final three games of the season.

Head coach Todd Bowles simply replied "no" when asked if Revis would get any time at safety before the season, responding with "he's playing corner" when prodded to explain why.

"That's not a thought process right now," Bowles said Revis playing safety. "That's something we may talk about in the offseason. It isn't going to happen the next three games."

The Jets were crushed by the Colts, 41-10, on Monday night at MetLife Stadium as they fell to 3-9 on the season. Bryce Petty replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick during the game and will be the starter for the remainder of the season. Here's insight and analysis regarding the Jets' awful Monday night performance...

Quarterbacks

Ryan Fitzpatrick's performance speaks for itself. He only completed one pass beyond the first down marker, had a completion percentage below 50 percent, and punctuated his performance with an interception on the kind of forced throw he's been unable to get away with all season.

But at what position? And for whom? Neither of those answers are clear just yet. And though it's certainly possible that the Jets will simply part ways with the greatest cornerback they've ever had, a team source insisted not to rule Revis out of the Jets' 2017 plans just yet.

Darrelle Revis, the embattled Jets cornerback, insists that he has given no thought to retirement despite his age and his struggles this season, and that his love for the game of football is as strong as ever. In fact, in an interview with SNY.tv on Thursday, he said any questions about how much he still wants to play are "really bizarre."

That was the 31-year-old Revis' response to the latest round of criticism in what has become a miserable season for the future Hall of Famer. He has struggled on the field in a season he admits is "definitely not" up to his personal standards, and the shots he's taken in the media have been relentless at times.

The latest came in a report in the New York Daily News on Wednesday that quoted a "confidant" of the cornerback saying "If he had his way he'd be done right now. He doesn't want to play anymore."

Jets CB Darrelle Revis would be done playing right now if he had his way, a confidant told Manish Mehta of the Daily News.

"He's done," the confidant said. "If he had his way, he'd be done right now. He doesn't want to play anymore. He's made a lot of money."

The confidant added that Revis "tanked" this season.

By the end of the game, Patriots fans had taken over the Meadowlands and no one was surprised. Most of the Jets fans sadly headed for the exits, having seen this ending before.

Of course the Jets had a chance to beat the Patriots, and of course it ended with the ball getting swatted out of Ryan Fitzpatrick's hands. And of course Tom Brady, given enough time -- or any time at all -- engineered a game-winning drive. That's the way it goes for teams who have franchise quarterbacks on their roster. That's the way it goes, far too often against the Jets.

Bent: This was as frustrating a loss as the Jets have experienced all season. While it's easy to take consolation from the fact that the game was essentially meaningless and that losing the game might even be for the best in the long run, it's always unbearable to lose to the Patriots. 

That's especially true when the Jets arguably played well enough to win comfortably...

New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa used his butt to help him make a highlight-reel touchdown that helped him record his first 100-yard receiving game in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the New England Patriots.

The New York Jets showed flashes of what they had hoped to be a fluent offense and strong defense in a 22-17 loss to the New England Patriots. But at the end of the day, following another loss, they are still in the midst of a lost season.

GEICO SportsNite: Jets-Pats 00:01:51
The Jets discuss their upcoming divisional matchup with Tom Brady and the Patriots at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - There are many reasons why Todd Bowles gave a stiff arm to the future this week and decided to ride with Ryan Fitzpatrick as his quarterback on Sunday. The most important one, he's said all along, is that Fitzpatrick gives the Jets their best shot at a win.

And boy, in the middle of this miserable, lost season, would a win over the New England Patriots feel good.

Despite Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis having an up-and-down season, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said he and his team will not take the corner lightly this Sunday. 

Belichick, who coached Revis in the 2014 season, said the 31-year-old still has the ability to make plays to beat teams.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The optimism of last season is all gone now for the Jets. They are stuck with a season spiraling out of control and a roster that may soon be dramatically changing. GM Mike Maccagnan insists he has a long-term plan to rebuild the floundering franchise.

And that plan should absolutely include coach Todd Bowles.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The decline of Darrelle Revis has been alarming this season, and as middling receivers have regularly beaten him, he's sometimes looked as old as he says he feels. There have even been plays when he's appeared to give only a partial effort.

But as far as Jets GM Mike Maccagnan is concerned, that partial effort is good enough.

Jets CB Darrelle Revis played poorly again during the team's 9-6 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

When the 31-year-old Revis was asked after the game why he's struggling, he told reporters "because I'm old."

"You have bumps in the road," he added. "Are you going to see a one catch for one yard game? Probably not. I was 23, 24 years old then. That's just not where it's at. Can I execute better and do things better? That's going to come. That's definitely going to come down the road."

From the outside it looks like chaos because that's the way it always looks when a team with high expectations goes into nosedive. It starts with the losses. Then players get angry. Some of them fight. And as the frustrations mount, rules are broken. A picture is painted of a coach losing control.

But that's just not the way it is with the Jets, where Todd Bowles remains firmly in charge, well-respected, and not in any apparent danger of being fired. As for the noise, the chaos, and the perception of a mess …
