Top New York Jets Storylines Heading Into Training Camp

Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenberg Battle It Out

One, two, three…four. That’s a lot of quarterbacks.

Four isn’t just a big number, it’s a scary number of QBs to keep on a roster in this NFL – one that only allows 46 active players on Sundays and 53 in total.

Therefore, if Ryan Fitzpatrick does find his way to Florham Park, New Jersey at any point this summer, there is one guy who’ll find the need to be extremely nervous.

His name is Bryce Petty.

Geno Smith and Christian Hackenberg aren’t going anywhere. Geno has proven his worth as a top two QB, while Hackenberg is a second-round rookie. Petty’s progress, or lack thereof this summer, will mean a lot to his future with the Jets if Fitz finds his way onto the team.

Some think Mike Maccagnan could play a bold game and keep four quarterbacks going into Week 1, but let’s be honest, it’s a rarity these days.
