New York Jets: A Fan’s Guide To An ‘Interesting’ 2016 Quarterback Situation

Bryce Petty

  • 2016 Projected Role: Second Team

Honestly, if Bryce Petty enters 2016 as the New York Jets backup quarterback, the starter better not get hurt.

Much like Hackenberg, Petty is a project. He comes from Baylor’s offense. This can only mean one thing: He’s not even close to being ready for the pro game.

In college Petty was able to chuck the ball all over the field from a spread look. Open wide receivers were the norm, not the occasion.

While he showed positive things last preseason – especially by way of attempting to go through progressions – on the field production will be the only ticket when trying to evaluate Petty.
