4.) New York Jets

Winning the offseason does not mean a team has won anything, especially a team that has not been to the playoffs since 2010 and has had only three seasons finishing with a .500 record since then. When the Jets traded for Aaron Rodgers in the offseason, the Jets were hyped in the media because of their stellar defense from last season and now adding a future Hall of Fame quarterback.

Sure, the Jets have weapons in Garrett Wilson, Allen Lazard, and even a good backfield with Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook. Hall is coming off of a torn ACL from last season and Cook has battled injuries the last few seasons. 

On the other hand, their offensive line has been criticized publicly and Robert Saleh is possibly coaching for his job because of his overall performances in the last two seasons as the head coach (11-23 record).

The Jets are closer to what the Denver Broncos were when they traded for Russell Wilson, rather than when the Los Angeles Rams traded for Matthew Stafford and ended up winning the Super Bowl. In a surprising prediction, the Jets will be the Jets and finish last behind Aaron Rodgers.
