Special Teams


  • Nick Folk (Place Kicker)
  • Ryan Quigley (Punter)

The best player for the Jets in 2014, kicker Nick Folk, returns in 2015.

Long Snapper

  • Tanner Purdum


  • Jeremy Kerley (PR)
  • T.J. Graham (KR)
  • Shaq Evans
  • Devin Smith
  • Antonio Cromartie

If Daryl Richardson doesn’t make the team, there will be one less kick returner on the squad. For him to make it, however, either Stevan Ridley or Zac Stacy need to pack their bags.

Another possible option here is DeVier Posey, but he’ll have a tough time making the squad with Shaq Evans tearing it up.

Special Teams Specialists

  • Joe Mays
  • Jamari Lattimore
  • Jaiquawn Jarrett
  • Dexter McDougle

Watching Joe Mays, Jamari Lattimore and Jaiquawn Jarrett try to hit everything in sight while sprinting down on special teams this season, will be, well, special. The Jets finally have the depth to construct a pretty solid special teams in all areas.
