As the Jets get close to training camp, I am examining the roster and giving you my top 25 players. Each weekday, we will reveal another person on the list, leading right into camp.

Last year's ranking: Not ranked
Age on Opening Day: 28
How acquired: Claimed off waivers from the Patriots on Sept.
Elite Sports NY: New York Jets: The staggering numbers behind Jamal Adams' ascension
In 2018, Jamal Adams had one of the best individual seasons by a New York Jets player we've seen in recent history. It would also be completely fair to argue that Adams' 2018 campaign was the best ever by a Jets safety.
Let's dig into some of the numbers behind the young stud from Louisiana State University.<strong>Improvement in Coverage</strong>
Over the last two seasons, I've been personally tracking individual coverage stats for Jets defenders.
As a rookie in 2017, Adams was picked on quite a bit in the passing game.
"It's a perfect system for the Mike linebacker."That's what we like to hear from @TreyDeuce32RTR https://t.co/LSAcB9mcxW
Fansided: New York Jets Player of the Day: RS Bruce Harper
While he never became a full-time starter in the backfield, Harper still made a massive impact for the Jets on special teams, becoming the most prolific return man in franchise history.
An undrafted free agent in 1977 out of Kutztown (PA), Harper made an immediate impact for the Jets, leading the NFL in kick return yardage in each of his first three seasons in the league. He also led the league in all-purpose yards in two of his first four seasons.
Harper spent all seven of his NFL seasons with the Gang Green, and still ranks No.
Fansided: Jets DL Leonard Williams says new defensive coordinator brings the fire
There's no denying the talent the Jets have on defense, but their new scheme could help them reach their full potential in 2019 and beyond.
At the helm of that playbook is Gregg Williams, a veteran NFL defensive coordinator with head coaching experience, who brings an aggressive style to both the field and the classroom.
For defensive lineman Leonard Williams, his new coach is already reminding him of one of his favorites from his time at USC (via team reporter Olivia Landis):
I love his style. He flies around with a bunch of energy, and he's really enthusiastic.
ESPN.com: Former Aussie rugby league star hopes to 'put on a show' for Jets, NFL
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Former rugby league star Valentine Holmes had been practicing with the New York Jets for two months, learning football on the fly, when it finally hit him. It was June 3, media day at One Jets Drive. He slipped into full uniform for the first time and walked into a massive photo shoot with the rest of his teammates. In that moment, the impact of his NFL adventure -- which didn't sit well with many fans in his native Australia -- was palpable.
"To wear the full suit -- the tight pants, the jersey, the pads and the helmet -- it was pretty cool," said Holmes, who, in his previous line of work, had no use for pads.
Fansided: C.J. Mosley wants to be a stabilizing force for Jets defense
This offseason, the Jets saw tons of moving and shaking across the entire organization, replacing both the head coach and general manager after a third straight season with 10 or more losses.
But the upheaval also brought reinforcements to the roster, and the talent and experience they bring to the table should help turn things around for a team that hasn't made the playoffs in nearly a decade.
One such addition in free agency was C.J. Mosley, a four-time Pro Bowler who was surprisingly allowed to test the open market by the Baltimore Ravens. The Jets gladly took advantage of the opportunity, paying big money to drop the former first-round pick into the heart of their improving defense.
Fansided: Patriots WR Julian Edelman heaps praise on Jets, Adam Gase
While the Patriots have been off winning the Super Bowl seemingly every other year, the Jets have been treading water in the NFL basement. The Gang Green haven't been to the postseason in nearly a decade, but the new regime is hoping to change those fortunes this season.
The Jets overhauled the front office and coaching staff this offseason, and brought in plenty of new faces to upgrade the roster on both sides of the ball.
Those upgrades haven't escaped the attention of Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, who believes the Jets might have a recipe for giving his team plenty of trouble in 2019 (via George Willis, New York Post):
They've got some new coaches and some really dynamic players and a young quarterback.
