As we approach the 2016 season, we are going to profile the players on the roster. Today we look at Taiwan Jones.

Name: Taiwan Jones

Number: 49

Year With Jets: 2nd

Projected Role: Competing for backup inside linebacker sport

His 2015: An undrafted free agent out of Michigan State, Jones did not make the roster out of training camp. He did earn a practice squad spot and impressed the coaches enough to earn a call up to the active roster in December.

2016 will be a success if: Jones continues to develop in practice and impress the coaches. This might be as a member of the practice squad. His chances of making the team took a hit as the team signed Erin Henderson and Bruce Carter and drafted Darron Lee.There has been some buzz that the Jets like Jones' potential, though, so he might be given a chance to show he has the stuff to be a long-term player.

Odds of making the roster: Unlikely (25-50%)
