NY Jets: The State of the Linebackers

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

What is the state of the linebacker position for the Jets? The question was asked by a listener to our podcast so today's show is dedicated to answering it.

Linebackers have different roles. Just because a player is listed as a linebacker on the roster does not mean he necessarily does exactly what another linebacker does. Outside linebackers can have wildly varying roles depending on the system in which they play. With this in mind, I take a look at where the Jets currently stand. As with much of the roster, things do not currently look great, although there are a few reasons for optimism. Aside from David Harris, there is youth at linebacker. The question is how good that youth will ultimately become for the Jets.
