The Jets have been one of the most active teams in the NFL this offseason. Between a coaching change, a few big-name signings in free agency, control of the third overall pick in the NFL Draft and heightened expectations, the Jets haven't had this much to look forward to entering a season in quite a while. 

Owner Christopher Johnson, speaking at the NFL's Owners Meetings in Arizona on Sunday, touched on those topics, plus more. 

Here are the main takeaways from what the Jets owner had to say: 

1. Johnson believes the team has a chance to make the playoffs

The Jets have not reached the playoffs since the 2010 season, when they reached back-to-back conference AFC Championship games during the early Rex Ryan-Mark Sanchez days. While that may feel like a lifetime ago, Johnson is confident the team can end the postseason drought sooner rather than later. 

"I sure as hell hope we're a playoff team," Johnson told reporters before adding, "we can't get there fast enough.

"If we win a Lombardi Trophy, I'll wear it around like a crown." 

It may not be a playoff mandate, but it's clear the owner would like to see his team contend in 2019. 

2. The Jets may not be done this offseason

Signing running back Le'Veon Bell, trading for offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele and signing linebacker C.J. Mosley were just some of the moves New York made with a plethora of cap space and a roster need of revamping. 

Although Johnson did not point to any specific areas of need, he noted that holes still exist across the roster, and that the Jets will do all in their power to continue addressing them. 

"The fans are going to love this," he said. I know they love the Bell signing, Mosley signing, [Osemele trade]. We've given Sam [Darnold] more targets and better protection. We still have the draft to go through. I think they're going to see our plan unfold and they'll be happy with it."

3. Free agents must be 'all in' on Jets

Johnson briefly addressed the Anthony Barr fiasco from the beginning of free agency. The Vikings linebacker had a deal in place with the Jets, but reneged and ultimately re-signed with the Vikings after reportedly feeling sick to his stomach about the initial decision. 

The owner expressed his disappointment in Barr's decision, but emphasized his desire for the team to sign players who "want to be New York Jets." 

"Not everybody wants to be in New York," Johnson said. "If he didn't want to be here, that's fine. It's disappointing when someone backs out on an agreement, but we want people who are all-in."

4. Johnson is excited about the Adam Gase-Gregg Williams tandem 

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and head coach Adam Gase have the X's and O's covered on defense and offense, respectively. Johnson was complimentary of Gase -- not that the new coach has had a chance to do much yet -- and labeled him as a "grinder." He was also "overjoyed" that Williams is coaching the defense. 

As for whether the two, both of whom are known for their intensity, will bring that aspect of their personalities to the practice field and meeting rooms, Johnson quipped "It might get spicy." 

He would not, however, comment on whether general manager Mike Maccagnan's future with the Jets is tied to Gase and the new coaching staff.

5. New uniforms are coming, and Johnson loves them 

The Jets are set to unveil fresh uniforms on April 4. Though he wouldn't provide any details, Johnson has already taken a sneak peak at them and said, "They're pretty badass."

Jamal Adams keeps getting better 00:01:36
Jamal Adams has 5 sacks in the last two games. Adams since the trade deadline has taken his game to another level. It hasn't gone unnoticed.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive

Jamal Adams got a lot of laughs a few weeks ago when he compared himself to Tom Brady and Aaron Donald, and a few more when he refused to back down from those words. His point, though, was serious - that he's really important to the Jets, and he should be treated that way.

The last two weeks he made that clear on the field.

In fact, it'll be hard to find a better two-game stretch in Adams' three-year NFL career. He had three sacks on Sunday in the Jets' 34-17 win over the Redskins, and for a second straight week was making plays all over the field. He's now had five sacks in the last two weeks, six in the last three, and that season-total of six is a Jetsrecord for a defensive back.

After the Jets 34-17 win over the Redskins on Sunday, running back Le'Veon Bell spoke to SNY's Jeane Coakley on the field about his offensive line's strong performance.

"Those guys did great," Bell said. "Covered guys up well, got out of double teams, protected well. Those guys played real solid. I'm sure they'll be happy today's performance and try to get better for next week."

Crowder on beating the Redskins 00:01:15
Jamison Crowder talks to Jeane Coakley after the Jets beat his former team, the Redskins. Crowder scored a 29-yard touchdown.

He was a man the Redskins drafted 105th overall back in 2015 out of Duke -- someone they believed would be their secret weapon in the passing game for years to come. 

But, on Sunday in Washington D.C., Jamison Crowder was handing it to his former employer instead. 

The Jets took down the lowly Redskins 34-17 on the road, and Crowder played a big part in that. He hauled in five receptions for 76 yards with a 29-yard touchdown as the big highlight from his performance.

It was a career day for Jets quarterback Sam Darnold on Sunday against the Redskins, as the No. 3 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft threw for a personal best four touchdowns in the win.

Darnold was 19-of-30 passing for 293 yards to go along with four touchdowns and an interception. He averaged 9.8 yards per attempt, a big time improvement from his season average of 6.4 yards per attempt. 

He finished the game with a quarterback rating of 121.3, which is the second highest of his career and best rating in a game this season. His career-high quarterback rating of 128.4 came in Week 16 of the 2018 season against the Green Bay Packers. Darnold's previous season-high rating of 113.8 came in the team's Week 6 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The game against the Giants wasn't a fluke. Sam Darnold really is back on track.

The Jets' franchise quarterback had one of his finest games of the season on Sunday, shredding the awful Washington Redskins in a 34-17 win. He completed 19-of-30 passes for 293 yards with four touchdowns and an interception.

Granted, it was against the Redskins and they are a truly bad team. But the 22-year-old Darnold showed a lot of the things that made people think he was destined for greatness before he began to regress earlier this season. He made a lot of throws outside the pocket, which has always been his specialty. He showed patience and leadership in the pocket, and some fantastic throws.

Colin Kaepernick has been a lightning rod in recent years and his opportunity to finally workout for NFL teams on Saturday went no differently. 

After a disagreement about the way the workout would go down in Atlanta, Kaepernick moved the time and location.

Per a release from the NFL, at 2:30 p.m., Kaepernick, upset with the lack of media viewing allowed for the workout, moved the event an hour away from the original location and slated it for a 4 p.m. start. The new location also included a live stream of his workout.

Jets vs Skins preview 00:01:08
With QB Sam Darnold seemingly back in the groove, the Jets look to make it two wins in a row when they face the Redskins on Sunday.

Like much of his team's 2019 season, things haven't gone according to plan for Jets running back Le'Veon Bell

Brought in by the team's former front office led by then-general manager Mike Maccagnan, Bell signed a four-year, $52.5 million deal with the Jets this offseason after sitting out last season due to a contract dispute with the Steelers. The plan was a Bell-Sam Darnold one-two punch on the Jets offense. 

Easier said than done so far.

Colin Kaepernick was set to hold a workout in Atlanta Saturday afternoon, and while it's still expected to take place, the time and location have been moved.

The stage was set for 24 NFL teams, including both the Jets and Giants, to get a look at Kaepernick, who hasn't played in the NFL since 2016. 

But shortly before the workout was set to take place, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported there was an issue.

The Jets announced on Saturday that the center will head to the injured reserve list, ending his season, and perhaps career. 

In a corresponding move, the Jets signed offensive lineman Leo Koloamatangi to the team's 53-man roster from their practice squad.

This season, the Jets have had losing streaks of four and three games, but for just the second time this season, the Jets have a chance to win two games in a row.

"Guys have just put their head down and go to work," Adam Gase said on Friday. "Once we hit Wednesday, we put last week behind us. Our guys know, and we talked about it before, we got to get ready for the next one because that's the only one that matters.

"You never want to take a step back, you want to be able to look at your season and say, 'Hey, we're getting better as we go,' and then you're playing the best football at the end of the year. That's why to me these last seven games are so important. Keep trending upward, we don't want to be peaks and valleys."

In the first half of the Jets' season, almost anything that could have gone wrong, did.

With Sam Darnold sidelined for three games due to mono, plus other injuries to key players like CJ Mosley, the Jets stumbled out of the gates to a 1-7 record.

But Gang Green rebounded to beat the Giants last week in a 34-27 game, and now the team hopes to take some momentum into this Sunday's game at Washington.

Colin Kaepernick has not played in an NFL game since January 1, 2017, but the quarterback could be making his return to NFL action in the near future. 

Kaepernick will hold a private workout on Saturday in Atlanta, and SNY's Ralph Vacchiano has previously confirmed that both the Jets and Giants will be in attendance. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, more than 24 NFL teams will be on hand to watch the former 49er work out.

At the end of Thursday night's game between the Browns and Steelers, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett hit Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head with his own helmet, causing a massive brawl between the two teams.

Many NFL players were shocked to see such a violent act take place during a game, and it made Jets veteran offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum ask the question if Garrett could get in more trouble than just a suspension and fine.

"If he's going to be charged with assault or not?" Beachum told reporters."I think that should be a question... I mean, it's a slippery slope. But it's a possibility for sure."

The saddest thing about the current state of the Jets is that this was supposed to be the year they arrived. After nine years of waiting for a playoff game, after enduring three years of rebuilding under ex-GM Mike Maccagnan, it was all supposed to come together in 2019.

Not only didn't that happen, but now the Jets appear to be on the brink of a rebuilding project again.

Gase talks Enunwa complaints 00:00:31
Jets head coach Adam Gase addresses the critical comments about the team posted to social media by injured receiver Quincy Enunwa.

Quincy Enunwa tweeted on Thursday night that he has been fined nearly $28,000 by the Jets for missing two treatment sessions.

In the Twitter thread, Enunwa claims that one of the missed sessions came when he took his wife, who is a veteran, out for lunch on Veterans Day. Enunwa attributed the second missed treatment to an emergency at this house.

Enunwa played in just one game for the Jets this season, suffering his second neck injury of his career in a Week 1 loss to Buffalo before heading to Injured Reserve.

"I think if everything works out how it's supposed to, and Adam's here again, I think that would be absolutely amazing," Darnold said. "Already going into OTA's and knowing the whole offense, and even being able to build off of things we've already done this year. It would be incredible."

The two teams have their respective franchise signal in Jets second-year pro Sam Darnold and Giants rookie starter Daniel Jones, and they have at least one backup between the Jets' Luke Falk and the Giants' Eli Manning.

Christopher Johnson made official what was already pretty obvious, despite the knee-jerk screams to the contrary. He has no plans to fire Jets coach Adam Gase in the middle of his first season, nor will he fire him after the season either.

And despite the pain and the agony of yet another losing season, that is absolutely the right thing to do.

Consider this a moment of sanity: It simply would've been crazy to fire a coach for the second time in a calendar year. And it would've been insane to make Gase the scapegoat for the mess this season has become.

Jets fans don't want to think about this past NFL trade deadline when S Jamal Adams was reportedly almost dealt away. He wasn't traded, but it didn't create a little rift between Adams and the front office. 

Since then, the choppy waters have settled, and Jets owner Christopher Johnson may have just put them at a standstill with his comments Wednesday on the dynamic Pro Bowler.

"Jamal is a fantastic player. We saw that this Sunday. He's an extraordinary player," Johnson told reporters. "He's the kind of player you can build around -- you should be around given the chance. Absolutely amazing."

Jets head coach Adam Gase entering another week coming off a win at home, searching for his team's first win streak of the season. They have a good chance to make that happen against the lowly Redskins, whose only win this season came against the Dolphins. 

During his daily presser before practice, Gase was brought to the attention of some of his players saying this franchise as had a hard time sustaining success, though. Just when it looks like they've turned the corner with a big win, they end up taking a loss the next week to counteract it. 

That's why Gase is determined to focus solely on this week, and not have the win in the back of his mind. For him, the past week -- win or loss -- doesn't matter.

On one of the sacks Adams had on Sunday, he ripped the ball right out of Daniel Jones' hands and raced to the end zone for a touchdown.

Adam Gase joined ESPN and YES Network's The Michael Kay Show on Tuesday to discuss the Jets' huge win over the Giants this past week.

Gase discussed the performance of his young quarterback Sam Darnold and how his play seemed different when compared to other weeks this season.

"I thought he played really well," Gase told Michael Kay. "He did a great job of controlling really the things that he could control. He did a good job of making the right decision when he was in the pocket, whether it be taking a sack, throwing the ball away, just those little tiny things instead of trying to go out there and win it by himself. He did a good job of spreading the ball around, doing what he had to do to move the ball down the field."

It was announced by Jets head coach Adam Gase that TE Chris Herndon and G Brian Winters suffered tough injuries during the win over the Giants on Sunday. Now, it's the last game the two Jets will play this season. 

The Jets announced via Twitter that both Herndon and Winters have been placed on the season-ending IR. Herndon suffered a fractured rib, while Winters re-dislocated his shoulder and may need surgery. 

This is particularily tough for Herndon, who had the exact opposite sophomore campaign (or lack thereof) than his rookie season, where he proved to be a playmaker at the tight end position.

The Jets need some cornerback help, and the Bucs may have just helped them out a bit with a transaction on Tuesday.

Hargreaves, who was arguably the top cornerback prospect coming out of Florida in that Draft, hasn't panned out with the Bucs. And during the team's loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, a certain non-hustle play that resulted in a large gain for Arizona prompted head coach Bruce Arians to bench him for the rest of the game.
