The New York Jets are doing everything in their power to vastly improve the team ahead of the 2024 season. Things went left for the team in 2023 in the first year of the Aaron Rodgers era.

GM Joe Douglas and head coach Robert Saleh know their jobs are on the line so they have made it an emphasis to go all in. Thus far in free agency, the Jets have solidified the offensive line by signing Tyron Smith and John Simpson and acquiring Morgan Moses.

There are still some holes on the roster and the Jets should target some of their former players for 2024.

Below we'll discuss three players the Jets could re-sign.

3. Corey Davis, WR

Corey Davis unexpectedly retired last summer before the season kicked off. It came as a shocker but the Jets always kept the door open on a return.

On Mar. 14, Davis applied for reinstatement and was released from the Jets reserve/retired list.

The Jets haven't made any moves at WR yet and need to badly improve that unit behind Garrett Wilson.

In 2021, Davis signed a three-year, $37.5 million deal with the Jets but New York can likely get him at a much lower cap number.

He could likely fetch a one-year, "prove it" deal that won't cost too much money.

Davis is a superb run blocker and has the ability to feast over the middle of the field. In two seasons with the Jets, the 29-year-old reeled in 66 receptions for 1,028 receiving yards, and six touchdowns.

He would fit perfectly in what the Jets want to do and the Jets should look at bringing him back.
