Predicting The New York Jets 53-Man Roster: Keeping Four QBs

Cornerbacks (6)

Notable Cuts:

Either the linebacker spot has to be kept to eight instead of nine or the conerback corps will have to make due with six instead of seven.

This will be the exchange for keeping Petty on the roster.

It’s tough considering linebackers and corners are so heavily leaned upon in the special teams game, but for at least one week, this is the direction I see the Jets going in.

Having said that, it’ll be talented special teamer Darryl Morris who feels the 53-man wrath in this spot. Marcus Williams doesn’t just add to the corner depth, he can also play safety as well.

Safeties (4)

Notable Cuts:

Even with the idea of Marcus Williams having the ability to play a little safety, Bowles, the ex-NFL safety himself, will stay smart and keep four.

The production gap between the starters and backups is immense at the Jets safety spot, but that’s OK. If Bowles doesn’t feel comfortable with either Rontez Miles or Dion Bailey playing as the third safety in seven DB looks, he can simply slide M.Williams in there.

Calvin Pryor and Marcus Gilchrist make up one the top duos in the league.
