And, the first man ever to wear #56 for the Jets/Titans.  MLB Roger Ellis.  Started 13 games for the Titans in their inaugural 1960 season.

After he left the Jets in 1963, Ellis went on to a career as a Secret Service Agent, working on protection details for Presidents Ford and George HW Bush.

In the first year of Shea, when he made a tackle, the PA announcer would say "Guess Who" and the crowd would answer "Wa-hoo!" Anyone here  remember that?

Way before my time unfortunately!

Yup.

"Tackle by Who?"

"Wahoo!!!"

I believe he also had the name "Wahoo" on his jersey rather than McDaniel; although that may have been after he moved on to the Dolphins.

how's this for an idea

An NFL AAA minor league that rookies and FA signees play in starting about now and ending at the week before the first preseason game. Play in college and MLS stadiums to keep the dost down. Probably not economically feasible but darn it, I really don't want to wait another 4 weeks

Jerry Holmes. Not many notable players wore this number for the Jets. Holmes had 14 interceptions over 6 seasons for gang green in the 1980's.
