The New York Jets’ 2022 training camp is fast approaching and Gang Green fans are hoping the team can start building up after a 4-13 finish last year to improve in Robert Saleh’s second season as head coach .
Similar to 2021, there will be a big focus in training camp and in the preseason on the further development of last year’s first-round pick and starting quarterback Zach Wilson. The 22-year-old suffered major growing pains last season and needs to make a notable step forward if the team is expected to battle for a playoff spot in the winter.
The Jets also had a well-received performance in April at the 2022 NFL Draft, making three picks in the opening round. With the acquisition of cornerback Ahmad Gardner, wide receiver Garrett Wilson and a late-half trade for Jermaine Johnson II, fans are hoping the team has packed a few building blocks to bring them back to prosperity sooner or later respectively.

Can fans attend the Jets’ training camp this year?
Yes, fans can attend a number of team public drills during camp. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, access for fans has been severely restricted over the last two seasons. However, that will fundamentally change in 2022 and you can expect a level of access this summer similar to training camps in 2019 and back.
As the team’s camp schedule has not yet been released, this also means that there are no tickets available yet. When tickets for camp events come on the market we will update you with everything you need to know.
Storylines, position battles for New York Jets training camp
Here are the key storylines and positional battles to watch during Jets training camp 2022.
Who will be the Jets WR2?
It’s surprising to think, but rookie Garrett Wilson has an opportunity to become the team’s top receiving target this summer. But that’s the state of the Jets’ passing game right now. However, with a lack of big names, there are plenty of opportunities for the likes of Corey Davis, Denzel Mims and Jeff Smith to improve their games and earn the wingman position for Wilson in his first NFL season.
Can Mekhi Becton prove he’s ready for 2022?
Mekhi Becton missed almost all of 2021 with a knee injury. New York needs him back and in top form to give Wilson the best possible chance to grow in season two. Becton wasn’t at minicamp and his recovery is still an issue for the summer. Even though he doesn’t play in every preseason match, fans are hoping he can start Week 1 on schedule.
Is the hype surrounding Ahmad Gardner deserved?
The Jets’ trio of first-round picks will take center stage throughout camp. Especially fourth overall Ahmad Gardner. There’s a lot of hype behind Gardner, with comparisons to Jets great Darrell Revis. Fans will be watching closely to see if he’s the next signing of the greatest defensive player of all time or something else entirely.
Also, eyes will be on if Garrett Wilson can develop chemistry with his new QB and transform into the legitimate WR1 he lacked in his rookie season.
