Any time you can add an OT who gave up 4 sacks and 5 pressures on 80 dropbacks, you have to do it. 

The JD method of building O Line. It's so elegant it's almost Macagnesque.

Queue the miserable jet fan to overreact to cutting rb4 just like they did with Pinnock and Streveler.  This thread can hold their misery until Wed when its announced Zach will start and they start their "These idiots are rushing him back" narrative.

Dude, we didn’t cut Barry Sanders in his prime. Outside of injury he’d never see the field. As is he likely ends up on our PS. 

Yeah it's not as running backs ever get injured! 😇

Ty Johnson is the one that should've been cut. 

He adds nothing. 

It fits the JD/Saleh team building philosophy. If you play well in the pre-season, you ain't making this team. 

If you're mediocre to terrible during the regular season, you'll get 400 shots. 

White, Mims, McDermott, Davis, etc.

Agree 100%. Bam > Ty

Is he going to clear ? He had a great preseason 

Most teams have filled their spots already and the season begins on Sunday. 
 

This was an excellent example of JD’s “roster gymnastics” in maintaining/improving veteran OLine depth with a player he knew wouldn’t be picked up by other teams (McDermott has the most value to quickly contribute with the Jets above all other teams) and JD was able to keep & stash a promising young RB from being poached  by other teams after his strong preseason showing - Knight will be signed to PS if no one else claims him (which I doubt at this point in time due to season opener)

After years of Idzik and McCagagnan giving us this:

It’s GREAT to have GM who knows how to juggle the roster.

Way to stick the landing JD!

I understand how you might feel, but these guys -front office and coaches- put a lot of value in athletic scores. Zonovan had an RAS score of 5.85, Ty scored a 9.75. I was a little surprised about their interest in Knight in the first place, but I don’t know what Joe Douglas is looking at with RBs. Perine was the first guy he drafted in 2020 that didn’t test well.
