New York Jets: Highlighting Their Best Offseason Moves

Going into the offseason, the New York Jets had some major holes to fill at certain positions. They also had to find a way to fix an offense that ranked 22nd in the league in rushing and 21st in passing.

The once dominant ground-and-pound running game was the league's best just two seasons ago. This dissipated due to a weakened offensive line, a change in the lead back from Thomas Jones to LaDainian Tomlinson to Shonn Greene and some questionable play calling that took the focus off the run.

To fix the offense, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer was let go and former Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano was brought in to fill the position.

While Sparano is a nice start, an upgrade from Shonn Greene and right tackle Wayne Hunter, both of whom had disappointing seasons, should be next.

On the defensive side, strong safety Jim Leonhard is entering free agency and free-safety Eric Smith may be gone due to poor play. To counter this, the Jets made a risky move and signed the oft-injured LaRon Landry.

A pass rusher, linebacker and another safety are all needs the Jets have failed to address as of yet.

Here is a ranked list of the Jets' best offseason moves to date.
