Robert Saleh said there's been a "strong presence" in the offseason program, "much stronger than I anticipated." Jets players, in a statement released last week through the NFLPA, said "many of us" aren't planning to attend in-person workouts due to COVID-19 concerns. Saleh said he respects that the workouts are voluntary. He added, "The ones who are here are going to benefit from it."

The Jets' players released a statement Friday through the NFLPA, saying "many of us" will not attend in-person workouts due to COVID-19 concerns. The workouts are voluntary by rule, and they're exercising their right to skip them. The offseason program starts Monday with virtual meetings. Welcome to the big chair, Robert Saleh.

DE Vinny Curry, who won a Super Bowl with the 2017 Eagles, said he had "no hesitation at all" about signing with a perennial losing team. He mentioned Robert Saleh and Joe Douglas, saying he sees "where they're trying to take this ship. I just wanted to be aboard. I've seen this ship before" — a reference to how the Eagles won it all in Doug Pederson's second season.

DT Sheldon Rankins said he was drawn to the Jets, in part, by Robert Saleh's attacking 4-3 defense. "With me feeling healthy again and feeling back to myself, I feel like I can slide right in and do nothing but dominate in that front," he said on a zoom call. Rankins (two years, $11M) was plagued by injuries during his time with the Saints, but the former first-round pick said he's 100%.

Darnold: NFL trade talk was 'tough' to deal with

Quarterback Sam Darnold, who was traded from the New York Jets to the Carolina Panthers last week, says it was tough dealing with all the trade speculation.


Sam Darnold gets introduced to the Carolina media, but is he QB1?

On this edition of NFL Live the crew hears from Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule and Panthers new QB Sam Darnold as the panthers introduced Sam to Carolina. And who are the Cowboys going to take in the upcoming draft? Plus is Jadeveon Clowney heading to Cleveland to create a pass rushing nightmare for offenses? And Julien Edelman looks like he is set to retire.

In his zoom presser, Sam Darnold sounded disappointed that he didn't get a chance to finish with the Jets. He's only 23 and already has been traded — a shock to the system. He said the trade was "a tough pill to swallow" and that he never wanted out, thinking up until the trade that he "could make it work in NY." He said the uncertainty "was driving me insane." He had kind words for Joe Douglas and Robert Saleh. There was no mention of Adam Gase. He said he's thrilled to be wanted by Carolina.

The Jets have re-signed backup DB Bennett Jackson, who played in four games last season (48 snaps on special teams). They also signed former Titans OL Corey Levin, a former sixth-round pick (2017) who has appeared in only 16 games (one start).

Everybody knows the Jets need a veteran QB to pair with presumptive pick Zach Wilson, which is why they're hosting journeyman Brian Hoyer today on a visit, per source. Hoyer, 35, knows the offense. He started six games for the 49ers in 2017 (0-6). Robert Saleh and OC Mike LaFleur were on that staff. Right now, James Morgan and Mike White are the only QBs on the roster. Neither has game experience.
