Interesting note. Jets didn't sign any CB's.

From that list. It looks like John Pickens has the best chance to stick, atleast as a practice squad candidate. He can play inside and outside, so that gives him a versatility edge over someone like Kenyatta Wright. The key as usual, will be special teams play.

O-Lineman Mike King and Isaac Snell are interesting prospects.

Snell might be an NFLE guy next season.
