Rich Cimini was asked a question on Twitter about whether the Jets would lock up free agents Morris Claiborne, Demario Davis, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins before free agency starts the way they did with Brian Winters a year ago. Cimini dropped a little nugget of information that contract talks have begun with the trio.

We already knew Seferian-Jenkins has received and rejected an offer the Jets made.

To the extent the Jets have priority internal free agents, it is probably these three. I don’t think any of these three would be considered a “must sign,” though. Seferian-Jenkins had the best season of his career, but his production was still limited. Claiborne got off to a solid start, but he struggled with ineffectiveness and injuries in the second half of the season. Davis had a superb 2017, but there are factors that should limit his monetary value in negotiations as well.

These are three players who make sense for the Jets at a certain price, but they should be fairly easy to replace should money get out of hand.
