How did the Jets fare this offseason?

There was plenty of player movement this NFL offseason with Matt Cassel, Jay Cutler, Albert Haynesworth, Terrell Owens and Jason Peters, among others, moving to new teams. But what can often appear as a successful offseason does not always translate to on-field success in this league, just ask the Washington Redskins.
