  1. 1. If I were the Jets GM and I had to cut one, I would cut..........

    • Bilal Powell
    • Trent Cannon
    • Elijah McGuire
    • If I could, I'd cut both McGuire and Cannon - the old pro Powell is needed for leadership and experience
    • If I could, I'd cut both McGuire and Powell - Cannon is too valuable on special teams
    • If I could, I'd cut both Powell and Cannon - McGuire is a solid backup for Bell
    • If I could, I'd cut all 3, to be quite honest - I could find a couple of better schmoes on the waiver wire

It all depends on how Powell, McGuire and Cannon look in Preseason....

Based on last year McGuire looked slow. Was this because of the injury? We need to find out. I think that his injury has hampered him and he may never be the same again.

Cannon has speed and did have a couple catches but those fumbles on punt returns hurt him... Although he had some great tackles as a gunner and ran some good routes if he can cut down on the drops. I am curious to see how much better he gets with a full offseason. He was coming from Div 2, so there is a lot to digest when making to leap to NFL... I think he is still worth at the very least a spot on the PS, barring his improvement.  In college he wasn't known to fumble so I am not sure this will be a problem or if it was just adjusting to punt returns.

Powell.... I love this guy. But how much did the injury take from him. There was talk that this injury was possibly career-ending and life damaging. I am led to believe that he signed with the team as a last ditch effort to see how he recovered.... I could see him being the most likely cut before the season because of the severity of his injury.
