Jets Confirm Jalen Saunders Had a Seizure

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Today the Jets confirmed Jalen Saunders had a seizure, which forced him to miss preseason games and practice over the past two weeks.

It's probably a good thing for Saunders that he at least knows what he is dealing with.

Now that he's back on the practice field we will see what Saunders can bring to the table. He was a pretty dynamic punt returner in college. That is an area where the Jets have struggled to find an impact player, even during the high flying days of Westhoff.

I think the Jets are at a place on offense where they'd sign up for a league average unit in a heartbeat. A return guy who can make the offense use a short field and perhaps even put points on the board could make a large difference.
