Speaking of Aboushi....

Along with him Dakota Dozier and Brian winters are all still in the league.

Reason number 201 why Idzik was indeed far better than stinko McCagnan

 

I guess we should teach our kids to be offensive linemen, because if they are halfway decent they have a job for a long time.  

There were plenty in the 2020 draft that JD passed up to draft guys like Zuniga, Davis, Perine and Morgan.  

And for that he signs Feeney for more money than many make in their lifetimes.

I would not expect many if any decent ones to be waived, but JD should be on top of that.

I think you may be overstating things.  Who were these plenty of offensive linemen?  There were a few taken between Davis and Zuniga.  I was very high on Damien Lewis, but probably doesn't fit this zone sh*t as well as a power style and Davis may have been kind of a necessity with the impending trade of Adams.  Between Zuniga and Morgan who went that you liked? 

I was okay with Peart on Niang, but neither got much run.  Obviously more interior guys, but most weren't starters for the season.  Kindley,  Cushenberry, Tyre Phillips did not grade out very well.  I guess it would have been nice to have a guy that had some seasoning and some of those guys may step up, but I didn't see any no brainers for this team.  Too many holes.  Pick you favorite choice - so far it does not look too great, but I don't feel the problem was a failure to double dip on OL.  They did with Clark.  That hasn't worked out.  Neither have most of the others.

FWIW, I had intended to pick Isaiah Wilson (ew!) and Lewis to play the right side for the Seahawks in the JN mock, but Wilson went before my 2nd.  Without a T, I reached for Charlie Heck in the 4th the pick before Lewis went.  (double ew!)

It was simply irrational on anyone's part that actually thought Cager would make the team. There's a logjam on this team when it comes to WR. There was NO way the Jets were going to cut Denzel Mims. So Davis, Mims, Moore, Crowder, Cole, Berrios, and potentially someone else that can play ST.... Cager was never flashing enough to be that guy.

-Aboushy? Did we just step into a time machine? Did you mean Edoga? I think Edoga makes the roster with the McDermott and Clark injuries. Feeney is the backup Center. I think he sticks as well. 

Yes, you are right. No time machine, just a GLARING lack of caffeine this morning. Edoga.

I’m realizing today that other team’s cuts suck just as much as our cuts. Didn’t expect anything special but somebody has to be better than our backup iOL. Somebody.

Did you watch the giants game?  That’s a bad line. 
the Jets are not the 90s cowboys line but lots of teams ate desperate for help and would have traded for anything decent that was available

had my eye on Cushenberry, starting for denver now, not sure if he’s a zone guy or not. But I think Ashytyn Davis’s upside was rated several tiers ahead of guys like him. Liked the Cardinal RT as well Josh Jones. 
 

(the one that got me In Real time was the James Morgan over Gabriel Davis WR but anyway…)

since we are making cuts why not do all of them today?

if they don't does that mean anyone cut tomorrow was so close to staying they needed one more day of practice to see?

Think they had their one day of practice today.

Most of these cuts were probably made before practice today.

LOL...I hadn't considered that.  But a quick check shows that everything he does here, he mirrors there.

Only apparently we got one more '!' than they did (lucky us).

Who has that kind of time or energy?

JETS 53 MAN ROSTER
(As of August 30, 2021)

TOTAL: 78
Moves Still to Be Made: 25

I believe that Joe Douglas intends to make full use of the #2 waiver priority.  To do that, we will cut to 50 players and churn for three solid weeks.  Once you get past the starters, nobody is really safe. It is what I would do.  It is simple logic that other teams have better rosters and their trash is better than ours.  It is mini-draft time.

Offense - 23

Quarterback  
(3

  •   2 -  Zach Wilson  6'2" 214 BYU (QB) (2021 Draft Pick - 1st Round)  
  •   5 - Mike White 6'5" 218 Western Kentucky (QB)    
  •   4 - James Morgan 6'4" 229 FIU (QB)   (Signed Thru 2023)

 

While Johnson outplayed Morgan, he is less valuable due to age.  I would gamble that he will not be picked up and we can put him on the practice squad.  I am keeping three QBs because of COVID.

 

Running Back (3

  • 23 - Tevin Coleman 6'1" 210 Indiana (RB)  - Free Agent Signing from 49ers
  • 22 - La'Michael Perine 5'11" 216 Florida  (RB)  (Signed Thru 2023)
  • 32 - Michael Carter  5'8" 201 North Carolina (RB) (2021 Draft Pick - 4th Round) 

 

I cut Adams and Johnson in the belief that Adams will be available to put on the practice squad.  If Johnson cleared waivers, I would sign him too. 

 

Tight End  (3

  • 89 - Chris Herndon 6'4" 253 Miami (TE)    (Signed Thru 2021)
  • 81 - Tyler Kroft 6'6" 252 Rutgers (TE)  - Free Agent Signing from Bills
  • 85 - Trevon Wesco 6'3" 267  West Virginia  (TE/FB)    (Signed Thru 2022)

 

I cut Griffin, Yeboah and Brown.  If Yeboah clears waivers, I add him to the practice squad and make him a protected player (you can protect four I believe).  After cut-a-rama and claim-a-rama.  I bring back Brown.  The only reason I keep Wesco is as the fullback.  If we like a final cut better for that job, then so be it. 

 

Wide Receiver (5

  • 84 - Corey Davis 6'3" 209 Western Michigan (WR)  - Free Agent Signing from Titans
  • 88 - Keelan Cole 6'1" 194 Kentucky Wesleyan (WR)  - Free Agent Signing from Jaguars
  • 82 - Jamison Crowder 5'9" 177 Duke (WR)  (Signed Thru 2021)
  •   8 - Elijah Moore  5'10" 178 Mississippi (WR) (2021 Draft Pick - 2nd Round)  
  • 11 - Denzel Mims 6'3" 207 Baylor (WR)  (Signed Thru 2023)
  • 10 - Braxton Berrios  5'9" 190  Miami (FL) (WR/KR)    (Signed Thru 2021)
  • 17 - Vyncint Smith 6'3" 202 Limestone (WR)   (Re-signed Restricted Free Agent)
  • 16 - Jeff Smith 6'0" 195  Boston College   (WR)   (Re-signed Exclusive Rights Free Agent)
  • 14 - DJ Montgomery 6'1" 201 Austin Peay (WR) (Reserve Future Contract)  

 

I cut Montgomery, Berrios and the Smiths.  Really tough cuts but if we want to milk the #2 waiver priority, we have to get down well below 53. 

 

Offensive Line (9

  • 77 - Mekhi Becton 6'7" 365 Louisville (T)     (Signed Thru 2024)
  • 75 - Alijah Vera-Tucker 6'4" 308 USC (G/TB) (2021 Draft Pick - 1st Round) 
  • 60 - Conner McGovern 6'4" 306 Missouri (C)     (Signed Thru 2022)
  • 62 - Greg Van Roten 6'3" 303 Penn (G)    (Signed Thru 2022)
  • 78 - Morgan Moses 6'6" 318 Virginia (T)  (Signed Thru 2021)  - Free Agent Signing from WFT
  • 76 - George Fant 6'5" 322 Western Kentucky (T)     (Signed Thru 2022)   
  • 67 - Dan Feeney 6'4" 310 Indiana (G/C)  - Free Agent Signing from Chargers
  •  
  • 69 - Conor McDermott 6'8" 305 UCLA (G/T)  (Signed Thru 2021) (Injured?)
  •  
  • 78 - Grant Hermanns 6'7" 305 Purdue (OL) (2021 UDFA)
  •  

 

I put McDermott on recall IR which puts him out for 6 weeks.  But - like Jared Davis LB - he has to make the roster before we can put him on recall IR.  I cut Murray, Levin, Williams, Edoga and Moore.  If Moore clears waivers, I add him to the practice squad.  Good looking player Moore.  Plus he adds to the Jets name issues.  In Becton, Moses and Hermanns.  The Jets have solidified a problem area.  Next year, we will add depth and let Fant walk.  If Moses does not wish to stay, we could do a lot worse than big Grant Hermanns at RT.  Never forget, it is a never ending quest to get younger.   

I am searching for a veteran interior lineman and am willing to pay.   As a Jet fan, I am annoyed that I have to do this.  But way too much is riding on AVT's health for my liking.    That person gets spot #10 and hopefully puts GVR on the bench if AVT is healthy.

 

Defense  - 24

Defensive Line  8

  • 98 - Sheldon Rankins 6'2" 305 Louisville (DT)  - Free Agent Signing from Saints
  • 95 - Quinnen Williams 6'3" 303 Alabama  (DT)  (Signed Thru 2023)  
  • 94 - Foley Fatukasi 6'4" 318 UCONN (DE/DT)    (Signed Thru 2021)   
  • 91 - John Franklin-Myers  6'4" 288  Stephen F Austin   (DE) (Signed Thru 2021)
  • xx - Shaq Lawson 6'3" 270 Clemson  (DE) 
  • 97 - Nathan Shepherd 6'4" 315 Ft. Hays State (DE/DT)  (Signed Thru 2021)
  • 47 - Bryce Huff 6'3" 255 Memphis (OLB)  (Signed Thru 2022)
  • 93 - Kyle Phillips 6'4" 277  Tennessee (DE)   (Signed Thru 2021)  *** Active Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) ***
  • 96 - Jonathan Marshall 6'3" 310 Arkansas (DT) (2021 Draft Pick - 6th Round)  

 

What a miserable experience!  These are the hardest cuts.  I cut Blair, Smart, Zuniga, Rashed, Valoaga and Adeoye.  Phillips goes on the PUP.  I did not want to cut Rashed.  Obviously a good candidate for the practice squad.

 

Linebacker   (5

  • 57 - CJ Mosley 6'2" 250 Alabama (ILB)     (2020 Opt Out) (Signed Thru 2024)
  • 52 - Jarrad Davis 6'1" 245 Florida (ILB)  - Free Agent Signing from Lions (INJURED)
  • 45 - Hamsah Nasirildeen   6'3" 215 Florida State (OLB/S?) (2021 Draft Pick - 6th Round)  
  • 53 - Blake Cashman 6'1" 237 Minnesota (ILB)    (Signed Thru 2022)
  • 44 - Jamien Sherwood  6'2" 216 Auburn (OLB/S?) (2021 Draft Pick - 5th Round)  
  •  

I cut Phillips, Eifler and Dawkins.  After we cut down and add J Davis to recall IR, it will open up a spot for another linebacker.  This will prove important after Cashman goes out for the season.

 

Cornerback   (7

  • 31 - Blessaun Austin 6'1" 198 Rutgers (CB) (Signed Thru 2022)
  • 37 - Bryce Hall 6'1" 202 UVA (CB) (Signed Thru 2023)
  • 25 - Brandin Echols  5'10" 180 Kentucky (CB) (2021 Draft Pick - 6th Round
  • 36 - Isaiah Dunn 5'11" 189 Oregon State (CB) (2021 UDFA) 
  • 34 - Justin Hardee 6'1" 194 Illinois (CB)  - Free Agent Signing from Saints (special teamer?)

"Slot" Cornerback   (

  • 40 - Javelin Guidry 5'9" 191 Utah (CB) (Signed Thru 2021)
  • 30 - Michael Carter II 5'10" 184 Duke (S/CB) (2021 Draft Pick - 5th Round)

I cut Pinnock and Campbell to go with seven corners one of whom is a full-time special teamer.  I am fine with putting Pinnock on the practice squad if he clears waivers.   Nor am I concerned with keeping UDFA Dunn over a draft pick.  Neither was highly regarded going into the draft.  Pinnock is all projection based on analytics and Dunn plays special teams. 

 

Safety   (4

  • 20 - Marcus Maye 6'0" 210 Florida  (S)  (FRANCHISE TAG)  
  • 29 - Lamarcus Joyner 5'8" 185 Florida State (S/CB)  - Free Agent Signing from Raiders
  • 21 - Ashtyn Davis 6'1" 202 Cal (S)  (Signed Thru 2023)  
  • 35 - Sharrod Neasman 5'11" 213 Florida Atlantic (S)  

 

I cut Hassell.  I would cut Neasman too but Davis missed all of camp.   

 

Special Teams  - 3

Punter 

  • 7 - Braden Mann 5'11" 198 Texas A+M (P)      (Signed Thru 2023)

Kicker  

  • 6 - Matt Ammendola 5'9" 195 Oklahoma State (PK)   

Long Snapper    

  • 42 - Thomas Hennessy 6'2" 246 Duke (LS) (Signed Thru 2023)

These cuts bring the roster to 50 players.  23 on offense.  24 on defense plus the kicker, punter and long snapper.  Once we have cut down to 53 players and submitted the final roster to the league, we will put Jared Davis and Conor McDermott on recall IR which will shelve them both for the first six weeks.  Then we will add five players from other teams.  We will cut and waive players for the next five weeks until we lose the #2 waiver priority after week three of the regular season.  It will be a huge revolving door.  I truly believe that Joe Douglas intends to make use of it while he can.
