Tight Ends (3)
- Wes Saxton (TE)
Much like the running back grouping, the tight ends are pretty standard. Jace Amaro, Kellen David and Zach Sudfeld will be the tight ends unless something drastic happens.
It’s hard to see Todd Bowles keeping anymore than three. Amaro is the weapon; Davis is the blocker; and Sudfeld can fill in the gaps.
Offensive Line (8)
- Nick Mangold (C)
- James Carpenter (LG)
- Ryan Clady (LT)
- Brandon Shell (RT)
- Brian Winters (RG)
- Ben Ijalana (T/G)
- Dakota Dozier (G)
- Wesley Johnson (C/G)
Now is when things become extremely interesting.
Do you see the name listed under the notable cuts section? That’s right. Breno Giacomini is included. Giacomini and his $5 million of cap space the Jets create when and if he gets cut.
He’s lost an incredible amount on his fastball and with New York trading up in the fifth-round to snap Brandon Shell – a youngster they really love – Giacomini will most likely be the sacrificial lamb when Ryan Fitpatrick makes his triumphant return.
We’ve been saying Giacomini is gone for months now. We won’t turn our backs on that prediction now.
