Special Teams (3)
The conventional train of thought says there’s only one position battle above. This would be as the Jets punter – which we have rookie Lac Edwards winning simply due to upside.
However, that isn’t true. Nick Folk doesn’t just provide valuable assets by way of the kicking game, he also provides $3 million plus in cap space should the Jets cut him.
If Ross Martin impresses the Jets this summer, don’t be surprised if Folk is let go. It could be just enough money to slide Ryan Fitzpatrick’s hands back under Nick Mangold’s booty.
