  1. I think Hermanns has a real chance - he's big and has a mean streak. Will watch him closely vs Philly, he should play a lot and give us a clearer picture of where he is right now
  2. Assuming the following are safe: George Fant Laken Tomlinson Connor McGovern Alijah Vera-Tucker Duane Brown Max Mitchell Pick three of the above to complete the Jets offensive line on the 53 man roster
  3. Updated with the Duane Brown Signing - August 11
  4. Rashed was a “fan favorite” pass rusher? I doubt anyone but the most hardcore Jets fans nationwide even knew who he was - and most of them knew he had 0% chance of making the team
  5. Looking forward to the 1st preseason game. Since starters won't play much, let's look at some players who might play a lot and focus on some interesting positional battles: Ty Johnson vs La'Michael Perine (RB) They both could get cut, but if one or the other shows out this preseason, they might win the last roster spot. Perine has been hurt but is healthy now - he is definitely talented and can play special teams. Johnson is more of a known quantity but has been up and down during his time with the Jets. Have to figure at least one of them or UDFA Bam Knight will end up on the practice squad Lawrence Cager vs Kenny Yeboah (TE) Neither seems likely to make the active roster but one or the other will likely earn a place on the practice squad. Both are talented former UDFAs with potential Dan Feeney vs Nate Herbig (OL) They're the exact same player. Both are guards who can back up at center. Both might very well make the team. Certainly, at least one will. Let's watch this battle closely Caleb Benenoch vs Grant Hermanns (T) Another likely battle for a practice squad berth. Benenoch is a veteran who has bounced around and can play G or T. Hermanns is a big kid out of Purdue who played pretty well as a rookie last preseason before ending up the practice squad. Of course, both could make the practice squad this year. Irvin Charles vs Tarik Black (WR) Both are talented, athletic "bigger" receivers. Both were heavily recruited HS players who never quite lived up to the hype in college. Both have had their moments in camp. Unlikely either makes the active roster, but at least one will definitely make the practice squad. Let's keep an eye on them to see if one or the other has an advantage Calvin Jackson vs Jeff Smith (WR) This is a battle for the backup slot WR spot - either on the active roster or on the PS. Smith has been around and contributed while UDFA Jackson has flashed in the offseason and camp and can return kicks Vinny Curry vs Bryce Huff vs Jabari Zuniga (DE) Jets have a logjam at DE. Curry is the old veteran who has been injured since coming to the Jets. Huff is a lovable overachiever type who puts up impressive analytics when he plays. Zuniga has prototype NFL DE size, but has underachieved - but he has made some plays in camp this year. IMHO, only 1 of those 3 makes the active roster. Huff and Zuniga will probably play almost the whole game vs Philly, so let's watch them closely Jonathan Marshall vs Nathan Sheppard (DT) I think this is an actual "mano a mano" battle for a roster spot. One of these guys will make the roster and one won't. We might be able to slip the loser on the practice squad or might not Marcell Harris vs Hamsah Nasirildeen vs Jamien Sherwood (OLB) We were all surprised to see Marcell Harris listed at the starting Outside LB, so now we need to pay close attention to him vs Philly. Assuming Mosely, Quincey Williams, and Kwon Alexander are "safe", Harris, Nasirildeen, and Sherwood might be fighting for 1 or 2 places at the "converted safety" LB spot Javelin Guidry vs Isaiah Dunn vs Rachard Wildgoose (CB) Battle for the last spot at CB, maybe the very last roster spot. Guidry has been up and down but is at least a decent backup Slot CB, Dunn flashed last year in camp and made some plays when he was called up. Wildgoose was a Bills draft pick in '21 who was plucked off their practice squad Will Parks vs Elijah Riley (S) Will the Jets even keep 5 safeties? Barring injury, both could be gone in the final cutdown. Parks played really well toward the end of last year and Riley showed a lot of promise before getting hurt.
  6. Updated August 9 - 1st Preseason Game / Becton Injury / 2 Offensive Linemen added
  7. Since the roster is full, there will have to be a corresponding move - someone released or someone going on the injured list Could be my boy Derrick Kelley - tryout signee out of Florida State - or maybe a defensive player like recently-signed CB Luq Barcoo. Maybe DE Bradley Anae, who I like but is caught up in a major numbers game at DE
  8. Solomon Thomas ahead of Nathan Sheppard on the DL is the real big story IMHO
  9. Grew up in South Alabama - knew a lot of Saints fans. when they were bad, they whined and bitched about everything, when they were good they acted like insufferable pricks Horrible Fans with a few exceptions of course
  10. Kenny Yeboah seems significantly bigger than the scrawny kid we saw last year
  11. Reminder: All JetNation posters are required to do 2 things: Select a current Jets player to brutally and unrelentingly criticize at every opportunity including starting a new thread every time there is a tweet or social media post that says anything less than positive about the player (Note, Mekhi Benton, Denzel Mims, and Quinnen Williams are full and there is a waiting list for those players) Select a player on another team that the Jets didn’t draft and highlight every positive play that player makes while criticizing the team for moronically not drafting that player when “everyone could tell he was going to be a star” welcome
  12. Zonovan Knight is an UDFA rookie out of NC State. Had several teams wanting to sign him Went undrafted because his size/speed numbers were not that great and had some fumblitis
  13. Calvin Jackson is a rookie WR out of Washington State. Came to Jets rookie camp as a tryout and won a roster spot. Didn't have an UDFA contract or anything, just straight up showed out at rookie camp and won a spot. He's a slot WR and kick returner. I think he is a guy who could stick as a Practice Squad guy
  14. Take that dude's helmet and shoulder pads and tell him he isn't getting them back until 1 hour prior to kickoff vs the Ravens
  15. WELL....looks like I'll just go ahead and sign up for that Macrame class on Sunday afternoons this Fall after all.

  17. That is pretty interesting....a few weeks ago one of the infielders for my beloved but dreadful Pittsburgh Pirates threw a ball to 1st base clocked at 98 mph - the fastest throw my an infielder this season. Just for comparison purposes
  18. FYI: Both were technically already on the active roster and counting against the 90 so no corresponding roster moves are needed
  19. We pretty much have to pencil in Irvin Charles on the Practice Squad at this point. Still a long way until we get there, of course. As you may recall, Charles is a big athletic Jersey kid who originally signed with Penn State but got kicked off the team and transferred to a Division II school
