Jets vs. Eagles Winners and Losers: Five Losers for New York

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Here are players who did not help their chances for the Jets in the preseason finale against Philadelphia.

Brandon Shell: If Taiwan Jones took himself from off the roster to on the roster with his play Thursday, I think Shell took himself from on the roster to off it. It was as bad of a performance for an offensive lineman as you will ever see. He was constantly beaten. I know the Jets just traded a fourth round pick for him, but with this kind of film, it would be difficult to envision Shell not making the practice squad. I don't see how another team could justify using a roster spot on him by making a waiver claim.

Wesley Johnson: It was a really ugly all around performance for the offensive line. I could put almost any of the lineman in this group. I am guessing the Jets will scan the waiver wire for linemen this weekend. Johnson contributed multiple penalties in a poor effort.

Jace Amaro: If Amaro makes the team, it will be due solely to the lack of any viable players at the tight end position because he really did not earn a spot in the preseason. Tonight he fumbled and didn't come up with a pass through contact.

Jalin Marshall: I really wanted to believe in Marshall when I heard buzz at the start of training camp, but his preseason was very underwhelming. Tonight he put the ball on the ground again, this time on a return. He also had some responsibility for the punt return touchdown. I don't see how he contributes even on special teams. I think the big question isn't whether he makes the roster. It is whether the Jets will think he is worth putting onto the practice squad.

Christian Hackenberg: This one is not really about a roster spot as much as how far he showed he has to come in his development. His offensive line did him no favors. He probably had flashbacks to the line he had in college. Still, Hackenberg showed his decision-making and mechanics need a lot of work.
