Williams underwent offseason surgery in May to repair a broken bone in his foot. The expectation, at least as of right now, is that he won’t miss any time during the regular season — a relief for the Jets and their fans. Quinnen is supposed to be a staple of this defensive line even though he’ll be working with a brand new head coach (Robert Saleh) and defensive coordinator (Jeff Ulbrich) this season.
As Cimini points out in the above tweet, the Jets possess the ability to activate any of these individuals at any time, so it’s not like a placement on the PUP or NFI lists is a significant deal with over a month until the regular season’s commencement.
Maye’s placement on the NFI list comes ahead of what could be his final season in Florham Park. Following the Jets’ decision to franchise tag Marcus earlier this year, the two parties couldn’t come to terms on a long-term extension prior to last week’s deadline.
