Jets-Pats: Best Combined 53-Man Roster

Large_jets-patriots416_medium

After having so much fun with a Jets-Phins roster, I decided to put together my best 53-man roster using the NY Jets and the New England Patriots.

With this roster, I assigned 24 spots for offense, 26 for defense and 3 for special teams. Same as with Miami, except on offense I chose one fullback and 3 tightends. Overall, New England claimed 22 spots and New York claimed 31. New York had more starters with 14, compared to New England with 11.

Again positional depth could vary, but this roster is pretty conventional for a lot of teams.

I eliminated rookies from the roster who were drafted this year. I also eliminated seriously injured players, like Wes Welker, who are doubtful not only to return, but to return to their pre-injury form. Welker would certainly be a starter otherwise.

I enjoyed again making this type of roster and comparing players. Both teams are talented, but until proven otherwise New England is still the top of the division. Let's hope for some well-played games this season.

Enjoy the post. :)
