We have reached the first weekend of NFL free agency, and the period has been eventful for the Jets. The team has gone on a spending spree hoping to upgrade its roster.

It feels like things might be starting to slow down in free agency. The Jets made only a couple of minor depth moves on Friday, re-signing defensive lineman Mike Pennel and offensive lineman Ben Ijalana.

In other news, defensive back Tyrann Mathieu signed with the Texans on a 1 year, $7 million deal. There was a lot of fan excitement and speculation about the Jets pursuing the former star given his ties to head coach Todd Bowles. It seemed almost entirely fan-generated, though, as there were few suggestions the Jets were serious suitors or even interested.
