It won't be much of a surprise if the Jets walk away from Jordan Whitehead in free agency, too.

The sixth-year safety just hasn't been good this season. While his 97 tackles, nine defended passes, and four interceptions are all personal bests for the 26-year-old, Whitehead has also surrendered a whopping seven touchdown passes — tied for the fourth-most among all NFL defenders. That's without mentioning how he's missed 14.2% of his tackles, which is nearly double his 8.2% from last season.

At the end of the day, Whitehead just isn't good enough to be a starting safety. He'll show promise now and then but it doesn't take long for Jets fans' frustration to re-emerge. If it's Super Bowl or bust next season, New York must send the former 2018 fourth-rounder packing.

Perhaps Whitehead can rediscover his game in the future, but his best shot at that might be a change in scenery.
