The New York Jets need things to change in 2024. Over the past 13 years, New York has been constantly losing, failing to reach the playoffs during that entire stretch.

The Jets will be aggressive on all fronts to improve the team but especially on the offensive end. No one knows what general manager Joe Douglas and head coach Robert Saleh have up their sleeves but below we'll discuss three bold predictions for the 2024 offseason.

1. Jets Will Let Bryce Huff Walk in Free Agency

The New York Jets brought defensive end Bryce Huff into town as an undrafted free agent in 2020. Huff was first brought in to be a depth piece but the 25-year-old has developed into a quality pass rusher.

The Memphis product owns a lighting-quick get-off with the speed to bend around the edge. Huff was mostly used as a third-down pass-rush specialist but his play took off in 2023. He played on more downs and was the Jets' best pass rusher.

He led the team in sacks (10), which was his first season with double-digit sacks. Huff was also ranked eighth in the NFL in pass-rush win rate (22%). There were times when he was unblockable.

The Alabama native is set to hit the free agent market and he wants to cash in.

After the season-finale over the New England Patriots, Huff said, "I'm not giving any discount". You can't blame a player who's just hitting his prime for not wanting to take less money to stay in New York. Especially since he's not a starter. The Jets could have extended Huff during the season but chose not to.

The Jets defensive line currently consists of Jermaine Johnson, John Franklin-Myers, and Will McDonald IV. Johnson and Franklin-Myers have shown their ability to be effective. Although McDonald IV didn't play much as a rookie, New York has a lot of faith in the 2023 first-round pick.
