With the offseason officially under way, Around the League will examine what's next for all 32 teams. The series continues with the New York Jets.

What's changing

John Idzik has replaced Mike Tannenbaum as general manager, and 10 coaches from Rex Ryan's staff were either fired or left the team voluntarily. Marty Mornhinweg takes over at offensive coordinator while Dennis Thurman was promoted to defensive coordinator. Mornhinweg will bring a West Coast scheme to Florham Park as the Jets leave "ground and pound" behind once and for all.

Biggest free agents

Safety LaRon Landry: A bright spot who brought stability to the position and earned a Pro Bowl trip. Landry stayed healthy (a huge problem in his Redskins days) and gave the Jets some edge in their secondary.

TE Dustin Keller: Noted Mark Sanchez security blanket who saw his 2012 season wrecked by injuries. Keller never missed a game prior to this past season and could conceivably be a Pro Bowl player with better quarterback play.

RB Shonn Greene: Snuck past the 1,000-yard mark for a second consecutive season, but is one-dimensional and probably best suited in a change-of-pace role.

Other key free agents: LG Matt Slauson, WR Braylon Edwards, RG Brandon Moore, DT Mike DeVito, PK Nick Folk.
