The Jets' offseason has been a wild roller-coaster ride. It started at the bottom when they fired their head coach, peaked during free agency and the draft, then went on a wild spiral downward when they fired their general manager … and then somehow managed to come out of it OK.

In fact, not only do they seem OK now that GM Joe Douglas and his good buddy, head coach Adam Gase, are in charge; they are convinced they are on an uphill climb again. They are loaded with optimism. They feel like they are finally headed in the right direction. They believe a return to the playoffs is near.

Maybe they're right. Or maybe they're fooling themselves. For now, though, there has been an unusual amount of hope and excitement around the Jets as they wrapped up their spring organized team activities and mini-camps. Time will tell if that's warranted or not.

The Jets went into the draft with three major holes and only really filled one of them in their six picks. However, they did a good job of bringing in players with upside that added depth and filled ancillary needs after the first round.

After the draft, Mike Maccagnan indicated that the team will continue making efforts to improve the roster. He suggested they will be looking at the remaining unsigned free agents, anticipating cuts from other teams and may be even looking at some trade possibilities.
