The Jets and defensive back Marqui Christian reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year deal last Saturday, but it now seems like the deal will not be finalized.

Per Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets and Christian could not agree to final contract terms, and the team is now moving on.

Christian, originally a fifth-round pick of Arizona in 2016, had reportedly agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million deal with Gang Green shortly after the team officially parted ways with Darryl Roberts.

The recent offensive line additions made by the Jets have earned the most attention, and with good reason. Four of the six new additions so far are offensive linemen, as were the recipients of all four of the multi-year deals given out to new or re-signed players.

However, the Jets also brought in two defensive backs on one-year deals. Former Rams safety Marqui Christian and former Colts cornerback Pierre Desir should bring an injection of talent into the secondary. Let's consider how these two players could fit into Gregg Williams' defense.

Through the first wave of free agency, Joe Douglas and the Jets have taken time to improve the team's offensive line -- their No. 1 offseason priority -- while also bringing back a number of their own players who had hit the open market.

With moving pieces now falling into place, here's a look at how the Jets' depth chart may be looking right now (or at least our best guess), though there's still work to be done ...


QUARTERBACK: Sam Darnold, Mike White

This offseason, much has been made about the Giants' backup quarterback situation, but the Jets could also use a veteran signal-caller behind Darnold. Trevor Siemian and David Fales, both of whom saw playing time with Darnold dealing with mono last season, are both free agents, and the Jets must add to the QB depth chart.

White is a former fifth-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys, but he doesn't have the experience many teams look for at the backup spot.

The Jets shuffled up their secondary a bit on Saturday afternoon. 

The team announced that defensive back Darryl Roberts had been released, and almost immediately after, the Jets signed fellow defensive back Marqui Christian

Per SNY's Ralph Vacciano, Christian's deal is a one-year contract worth $1.25 million.

The Jets have added some secondary help, signing a former local product in safety Anthony Cioffi, the team announced on Thursday. 

The Springfield, NJ native was a four-year standout at Rutgers where he totaled 169 tackles, eight interceptions and 13 passes defended over 41 games. 

After graduating in 2016, Cioffi spent time in training camp with the Raiders in 2017. However, he would move on to the CFL, where he has been since 2018. He had a breakout year with the Ottawa Redblacks, tallying 61 defensive tackles, two interceptions, two sacks and one forced fumble over 18 games. 

The Jets don't need safety help with Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye manning those positions. However, with the injuries the secondary as a whole endured last season, depth from a versatile player like Cioffi who can roam around is valuable.

Jets safety Marcus Maye made key plays when called upon against the Steelers, landing him the individual recognition. 

Running back Saquon Barkley led the way for the Giants all game long in their overtime win over Redskins, earning him the nod.

In a game that meant a lot more to the Steelers than it did the Jets, it took the visitors a while to get going. Pittsburgh fell two scores behind early and, although they tied the game just before halftime, the Jets managed to shut them out after half time to hold on for a hard-fought 16-10 win.

The Jets were in control for most of the first half. They played the run well, generated pressure and intercepted two Devlin Hodges passes to knock him out of the game. However, Mason Rudolph came off the bench and gave the Steelers a spark, leading them to a field goal and then following that up with a late touchdown to tie the score.

Offensively, the Jets had put together a nice touchdown drive to start the game but then once again the offense faltered once they got through the scripted portion of the gameplan. Sam Darnold's fumble after the Jets reached midfield on an attempted two-minute drill would set up thetying score.

When the Jets released Wednesday's injury report for Week 14, they had their top defensive player atop the list.

Safety Jamal Adams did not practice after he sprained his left ankle in Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

With Adams as the latest casualty, the injury bug has bitten the Jets throughout the 2019 season, particularly on defense.

Jets S Jamal Adams had tears in his eyes when he was talking after Sunday's loss to the Bengals, and it was mainly due to the boot on his foot. 

Well, head coach Adam Gase revealed Monday the reason for that boot was an ankle sprain for the Pro Bowl safety. 

Gase added that Adams will undergo an MRI and "that kind of stuff" to further assess the injury. He will be considered "legit week-to-week," and Gase doesn't believe that he'll be practicing this week.

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.

The Giants and Jets are a combined 3-14, one year after going a combined 9-23, one year after going a combined 8-24. That's a 20-61 record over the last 2 ½ seasons, for a "winning" percentage of .246.

So no, the Giants and Jets don't match up particularly well with the rest of the professional football world right now. But how do they match up with each other?

In advance of their big showdown on Sunday at the Meadowlands, let's take a look:

The Jets' fanbase is furious, if not outright disgusted. The frustration is building inside the Jets organization, too. They are now 1-7 in what they thought would be their first playoff season in nearly a decade, and they just lost to a team that might very well be trying to lose.

Given all those extremes, it's impossible to say for sure that Adam Gase won't be one-and-done as the Jets' head coach. When the losses pile up, fans revolt, and the wheels begin to come off, anything is possible.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Le'Veon Bell and Jamal Adams were on the trading block on Tuesday, and both could have been dealt if the price was right. Was a deal unlikely? Yes. But it was certainly possible. And it might be possible again in the offseason, too.

But the best-case scenario for the Jets in the offseason is exactly what happened on Tuesday, when both Bell and Adams learned they'd still be wearing Jets green. Because those two, along with quarterback Sam Darnold, are the three players the Jets should build around.

They can't dump them for future draft picks and subject their weary fan base to another rebuilding project again.

It won't be the first time Bennett Jackson will be wearing green and white in New Jersey when he takes the field with the Jets on Sunday to kick off the new NFL season. 

Growing up in Hazlet, NJ, Jackson was strapping on his pads and putting his Raritan Rockets jersey over them for years. He was a star at the high school, making tremendous plays on both sides of the ball and wowing the crowd while he did so.

Many would flock to watch "Benny Brax" or "B-Jax," as he was affectionately known, ball out under the Friday Night Lights back then, so you can imagine the type of turn out he's going to get at MetLife Stadium.

Marcus Maye will return to the Jets' secondary on Saturday when the team hosts the New Orleans Saints in their third preseason game at MetLife Stadium.

In the game, Maye might only be playing in an exhibition, but he's excited nonetheless. 

"Once I'm out there, I'm going to go out there, fly around and make plays and stuff," Maye said. "It was a long offseason, a lot of hard work to get to this point. Just the fact that I'm here and looking back at where I was during the offseason, I'm definitely excited."

Early Sunday morning, the Jets announced that starting safety Marcus Maye had been removed from the Physically Unable to Perform List. The 2017 second round pick out of Florida had been out with nerve damage in his shoulder. When asked by media how it feels to be back, he responded with pleasure.

"It felt great, it's been a long process, but just getting out there running around and getting the feel of things, being out there with the guys, definitely feels good to be back," Maye said.

Maye was then asked if the process to getting back healthy has taken longer than he thought it would. "Yeah, but it wasn't in my control, nothing we could do about it," Maye said. "You just have to put your head down and go to work everyday, keep the same mindset knowing that it's going to get better and knowing the time is coming."

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Two days after he limped off the field with an apparent foot injury, there was no indication that new Jets receiver Jamison Crowder had ever been hurt at all.

That was great news for the Jets, to see the 5-foot-9, 177-pound slot receiver running all over the field on Wednesday, contributing to a big day for the Jets offense. It also had to be a huge relief after getting a scare on Monday when the guy who figures to be their top receiver had to be sent for an MRI.

With training camp starting up this week for the Jets, safety Marcus Maye finds himself sidelined once again. 

The Jets announced on Monday that Maye will be placed on the Active/PUP list along with another safety in Brandon Bryant. Rookie cornerback Bless Austin was also placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list. 

Maye just can't catch a break, as he still seems to be working his way back from his ailments that forced him on the season-ending IR last season. The former second round selection broke his thumb in Week 6, though he only sat out one week after getting a pin inserted in it. He also missed the first three games of the season with a foot injury, while dealing with a shoulder issue as well.

Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye built a strong chemistry when the two were rookies in 2017. Last season injuries prevented the duo from building on that start to their careers. 

Due to a slew of injuries, including shoulder and thumb issues, Maye was held to only six games played in 2018. Adams wasn't shaken by injuries. His season went in the opposite direction as he landed his first Pro Bowl nod. 

However, Adams recognizes the success of the Jets' secondary takes more than just him and he recently told the team's website that he's excited to have Maye back healthy and ready to go for this year's training camp.

After the Jets spent big money this summer, making splashes with the additions of Le'Veon Bell, C.J. Mosley, Jamison Crowder and Quinnen Williams, there has been a renewed buzz around Florham Park.

Meanwhile, their stadium-mates, the Giants, continued their roster revamp in controversial fashion - they said goodbye to stars Odell Beckham Jr. and Landon Collins, drafted a quarterback sixth overall and turned the keys over to an extremely young defense.

While the Giants are still rebuilding, the Jets are going all-in with a young quarterback, a budding defense and a new coach.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Adam Gase will act mostly the Jets head coach this week, not the interim GM nor the leader of a search firm. Le'Veon Bell will be in a Jets uniform, mostly because it's mandatory. And young Sam Darnold will finally get a sense of what he can do in his new offense with all his weapons on the field.

For the next three days, as the Jets begin their three-day, full-team, mandatory mini-camp, it will be football first, with all the off-field drama of the last few weeks finally pushed aside. Gase's coaching -- not his front office power play -- will be the center of attention. And there will plenty of interest storylines to watch.

Here are the top five:

"We'll slowly work him back in, we're just trying to be smart with him," Gase said about Williams, who has been out due to a calf injury. "We don't want to have any setbacks with him. When you have a big guy with any kind of soft tissue thing."

Gase added that Williams first felt the calf issue during the first day of OTAs and that they have been going slow with him to be precautionary.

Over the next month or so, we're going to be reviewing some of the top draft prospects at each position to try and assess some potential candidates that the Jets will show interest in. We continue today with a look at the 2019 safety class.

Jets Needs: Safety

When the Jets used their first two picks on safeties in 2017, that made it unlikely the safety position would be considered a draft priority for the next few years, especially since Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye had such impressive rookie seasons. However, while Adams went from strength to strength in 2018, Maye had multiple injury issues, missing 10 starts.

With the 2019 coaching staff starting to take shape, let's assess whom the new Jets coaches could look to target, based on whom they've coached in the past.

Edge defender Robert Quinn, Miami

The 28-year old Quinn was the Dolphins' highest paid player last season and is widely expected to be a cap casualty during the offseason. If he is, expect the Jets to show interest because he was one player who played hard down the stretch for head coach Adam Gase. While he only ended up with 6.5 sacks, 5.5 of those came in the final seven games. Earlier in the year, Gase jumped to Quinn's defense, saying creating pressure was more important to the way the Dolphins were playing than recording sacks.

Jets head coach Todd Bowles said S Marcus Maye underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair his shoulder injury that placed him on the IR for the remainder of the season. 

When asked about his expected recovery, Bowles answered with "a couple months," which is a good sign for the second-year player.

Maye, a second-round pick in 2017, is the seventh-leading tackler for the Jets in 2018-2019. He tallied 34 tackles, a half-sack, a forced fumble and one interception in six games this season.

Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on Twitter: The Jets dropped to 3-8 on the season but surprisingly hung with the Patriots into the fourth quarter on Sunday afternoon at Metlife Stadium. However, they were left to rue some costly mistakes that made all the difference in the Patriots' eventual 27-13 win.

Offensively, the Jets had more success moving the ball this week, although they only managed to find the end zone once, on Jermaine Kearse's first half touchdown reception. Stand-in quarterback Josh McCown led a two-minute drill just before halftime and Jason Myers' fifth 55-yard field goal of the season sent the teams to the locker room tied at 10-10 but New England was able to pull away in the second half.

On defense, the Jets played well in stretches, but there were still far too many breakdowns in the defensive secondary, with wide open receivers being able to exploit gaps in the Jets' coverage for several big plays. Sony Michel and James White also had big days running the football, combining for over 200 yards -- the majority of which came in the second half.

Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is still uncertain for Sunday's game against the Patriots as he looks to return from a strained right foot.

Darnold dressed for practice for the second straight day but did not participate again, however he said he feels he's getting closer to returning.

"Every single day I feel like I'm progressing and I'm doing so much more in terms of learning and all that," Darnold said, according to NYJets.com's Randy Lange. "So hopefully I can do a little bit more tomorrow and see where we go from there."

This is a terrible time for New York football, with the Giants and Jets sitting on what feels like rock bottom. They are a combined 5-14 this season, and the playoffs are already out of reach. And they are a combined 13-38 (.254) since the beginning of 2018.

But while there may not be hope at the moment for either team, there is still some talent on their two rosters. If they could only somehow combine the two, they might even have the makings of a playoff team.

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...

QB Sam Darnold (elbow) appeared on Wednesday's Jets injury report, but said the issue is "nothing crazy," per ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Darnold said he banged his right elbow while making a tackle following his interception during Sunday's win over the Colts. He added that it didn't affect him at all in practice, which he participated in fully on Wednesday.

Head coach Todd Bowles also told reporters he isn't worried about the rookie.

However, DL Leonard Williams (back), WR Robby Anderson (hamstring) and RB Isaiah Crowell (foot) highlighted a long list of Jets who did not practice.

Jets S Marcus Maye suffered a broken thumb during Sunday's win over the Colts, reports SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

According to Vacchiano, the team is still evaluating the extent of the injury. Maye missing three-to-four weeks is a reasonable estimate, adds Vacchiano, but is far from a certainty. 

Vacchiano adds that there is some hope that if Maye heals quickly and can tolerate the pain, he may be able to play with a cast on (Maye was wearing a cast after Sunday's game)...

The Jets ruled cornerback Trumaine Johnson, tight end Neal Sterling and wide receiver Charone Peake out for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.

New York also listed safety Marcus Maye, who missed the first three games of the season but debuted last Sunday vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars, as questionable with an ankle/foot injury.

Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa and cornerback Darryl Roberts, who respectively suffered injuries to their hip and hamstring Thursday, practiced in full on Friday.

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...

Maye has missed the first three games of the season.

Jets second-year S Marcus Maye has had to watch for the past three weeks, but he was finally back out with his teammates on Wednesday for his first practice in over a month. 

Maye, who has been out with a foot injury, may not have practiced fully, but it was the most action we've seen from the Florida product. He says it was finally good to get back out on the field. 

"I feel pretty good," he told The Post's Brian Costello. "I got out there today for the first time and ran around for a little bit and felt pretty good."
