The New York Jets have been making some smart and strategic moves in recent weeks here with the wildness of free agency in the National Football League.  They just signed wide receiver Mike Williams to a one year deal and I like the move.  He is big, athletic, and versatile and had a great career when healthy with the Los Angeles Chargers.  His big problem is his overall health and recent battle with injuries.  Below is my quick take on this as seen in The Times Union:

I don't think the New York Jets will make the playoffs next season but landing wide receiver Mike Williams will be a valuable weapon for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Williams who was released by the Chargers has two career 1,000-yard seasons and will be a nice complement to Garrett Wilson and Allen Lazard. But until the Jets improve their offensive line, they are not a playoff team. And Rodgers staying healthy a full season is very unlikely.

The Jets also singed Left Tackle Tyrone Smith from the Dallas Cowboys.  This is a great move as he can protect Aaron Rodgers next season on his blind side.  Smith is most likely a hall of famer and is a massive addition to a very bad offensive line, both literally and figuratively.  The Jets will compete in the AFC East but it all revolves around Aaron Rodgers' health.  We know the defense is solid but I like both of their recent moves and let's see if will help them in 2024.
