The Boston College product is one of the best safeties in the NFL. Simmons played last year on the franchise tag ($11.4 million) showing his value. He’s an instinctive safety who gets it done against the pass and run. He had 4 INTs in 2019, and then a career-high 5 in 2020.
Anthony Harris, Vikings 6-2 • 202 • 27
Harris played last year under the franchise tag after his superb 2019 campaign in which he picked off 6 passes and had 11 PDs. He wasn’t as good last year, (0 INTs, 7 PDs), but part of that could have been the Vikings’ lousy pass rush. He has a very good feel for the game and reads the quarterback’s eyes well. $$$$

FIRST DOWN- A lot of potential, but a lot to learn
There is a lyric in an old song by the rock group Chicago that sums up where Zach Wilson is right now:
IN HIS OWN WORDS WITH DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR JEFF ULBRICH - Ulbrich breaks down Jets' defensive personnel
(Marcus Maye) can do it all. I would feel comfortable with him (at free or strong safety). He’s a guy that, to me, he can play deep, he can play the half field, he can play the middle third, he can do that and you feel comfortable with it. I think he’s got range, speed and athleticism. I think he’s got ball skills and instincts to be a deep safety. But I think he’s got enough size and girth and want-to and courage to play in the box. It’ll be fun to utilize all the things that he does. He can cover tight ends; he can cover some of the wide receivers in this league.

Jets hope initiatives will increase winning edge
Aside from adding as many good players as possible to help the Jets improve, coach Robert Saleh and GM Joe Douglas are trying to turn over every stone to find extra ways to give their team a winning edge, and two examples of this were announced over the course of the offseason, with the additions of a game management coach (Matt Burke) and the installation of an Athletic Care and Performance Department. Let’s take a closer look at these two moves and how they might help the Jets:
