Jets 2017 Roster Breakdown: What Can Chris Harper Contribute?

NFL: New York Jets-Minicamp Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Our countdown of the Jets roster now looks at Chris Harper as we come close to closing up shop.

Name: Chris Harper

Number: 3

Year with Jets: 1st

Projected Role: Battling for wide receiver roster spot

His 2016: Harper bounced between the active roster and the practice squad for the 49ers. He had 13 catches for 133 yards when he was active for games. The Niners waived him during the spring, and the Jets signed him a few weeks later.

2017 will be a success if: Harper finds a niche within the passing game. I am not sure there are many teams on which a player like Harper could parlay a relatively strong training camp into a roster spot, but the Jets might be one of them. He has a chance to earn playing time and contribute to the passing game this season.

Odds of making the roster: More Likely Than Not (50-75%)
