Jets still need another one Dan Leberfeld

ESPN’s Adam Schefter announced today that the Jets are acquiring Baltimore Ravens safety Chuck Clark in exchange for a 2024 seventh-round pick.

Clark is a solid pro, who amassed 384 total tackles and five interceptions during his six seasons in Baltimore.

The Ravens signed free agent safety Marcus Williams last year and added Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton in the first round of the 2022 draft, so Clark made it clear he wanted a change of scenery.

With Lamarcus Joyner probably not coming back, the Jets needed another safety, and likely would have signed one in free agency, so this got them an early jump on filling that need.

But even with the Clark trade, they could still use another ball-hawking safety with elite ball skills and instincts. Their safety coverage last year was a little inconsistent. Penn State’s Ji’Ayir Brown could make sense at some point after the first round.
