Carl Lawson of the New York Jets makes a play against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The New York Jets are hopeful that their free agents will have better injury luck in 2022 than they had in 2021.
Last year, Gang Green spent over $82.5 million on the free market to sign playmakers Corey Davis and Carl Lawson on both sides of the ball. Unfortunately, they both missed over 25 games last season, which knocked a lot of the wind out of the sails for that class.
One of these superstars is poised to make his mark for the first time in the next season.

From spring workouts through training camp to preseason games in 2021, Lawson was widely regarded as the greatest player on the field.
The Jets spent $45 million for the 6-foot-2, 265-pound defender in the hopes that he would surpass John Abraham as the team’s finest EDGE rusher.
Early on, it seemed that they were getting their money’s worth, as he tore through the Jets offensive line in practice.
Unfortunately, during joint Jets-Green Bay Packers workouts, Lawson collapsed and ruptured his Achilles, therefore ruining his season before it even begun.
Gang Green was forced to hurry to make up the shortfall, but their efforts were in vain. With just 33 total sacks, the Jets finished 26th in the league, and only two players on the club had more than 3.5 sacks each:
Now, as the year 2022 approaches, Lawson hopes to continue where he left off. There was some concern recently that Lawson had “suffered a setback” in his recovery, but he is still “on target” for training camp this summer, according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini.
Setting the Stage for a Magnificent Return

Lawson is almost like a bonus free agent since he never had the opportunity to play a regular-season snap in 2021, despite the Jets spending a lot of free agency money here in 2022.
Most athletes would like to resume their previous position before to injury, but not Lawson.
He told ESPN, “I truly don’t have any desire in returning back to my prior state.” “I’m trying to be a better person than I was before. I’ve obtained all I’ve set my mind to. As a result, I don’t see that altering till further notice.”
The Jets will need him to step up because that is the missing piece for Robert Saleh’s defense to perform at its best.
In his five years in the league, Lawson has just 20 sacks, but his metrics show he’s on the verge of breaking out and becoming a double-digit sack monster.
While Lawson has never had a season with double-digit sacks, if it was ever going to happen, it would be in 2022 with Williams, JFM, Bryce Huff, Sheldon Rankins, Jacob Martin, and certainly numerous draft picks.
