Jets 53 Man Roster and Practice Squad Projection

New, comments
Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

As was the case last week, this is my best guess as to whom the Jets will keep on the roster, not necessarily the 53 I would choose.

Active Roster (53)

QB (4): Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith, Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenberg

Sure as Petty's performance against Washington earned him a roster spot, Petty's performance against the Giants earned Geno Smith his roster spot.

RB (4): Matt Forte, Bilal Powell, Khiry Robinson, Tommy Bohanon

I think this is close to a lock.

WR (6): Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, Kenbrell Thompkins, Jeremy Ross, Robby Anderson, Charone Peake

Anderson has earned his way onto the roster. Ross has outplayed Jalin Marshall to be the returner on this team. For some reason, I have a hunch the powers that be are higher on Thompkins than most of us are.

TE (4): Kellen Davis, Quincy Enunwa, Jace Amaro, Zach Sudfeld

Why they like Davis so much I can't tell you.

OL (8): Ryan Clady, James Carpenter, Nick Mangold, Brian Winters, Ben Ijalana, Brent Qvale, Wesley Johnson, Brandon Shell

It is starting to look like Breno Giacomini will not be available at the start of the season. With no return seemingly imminent, I am guessing he starts the season on the PUP list.

DL (6): Muhammad Wilkerson, Leonard Williams, Steve McLendon, Jarvis Jenkins, Deon Simon, Lawrence Thomas

Sheldon Richardson's return after his Week 1 suspension means Thomas' stay would likely be for one week,

ILB (5): David Harris, Erin Henderson, Darron Lee, Bruce Carter, Julian Stanford

Harris' injury has me thinking the Jets keep an extra inside linebacker at least in the short run. Stanford's strong game Saturday has me thinking it will be him.

OLB (4): Lorenzo Mauldin, Jordan Jenkins, Freddie Bishop III, Mike Catapano

Trevor Reilly is the odd man out.

CB (5): Darrelle Revis, Buster Skrine, Marcus Williams, Juston Burris, Dee Milliner

Milliner's status gets more and more precarious by the day.

S (4): Calvin Pryor, Marcus Gilchrist, Rontez Miles, Ronald Martin

That moment when you projected Dion Bailey on the roster last week, and he doesn't even make the cut to 75.

ST (3): Nick Folk, Lac Edwards, Tanner Purdum

We knew since preseason week 1 that Folk would be the kicker. The Jets made it official by cutting Ross Martin.
