NY Jets podcast: Focusing on the 17 receivers

The Jets have a strikingly large number of wide receivers on the rosters. Even with an expanded offseason roster, it is unusual to have 17 players at the position.

It goes without saying that most of these players will not be on the team by the time Week 1 of the regular season begins. It stands to reason that many will not even be on the roster by the time training camp begins in the summer.

On today’s podcast we take a closer look at the state of the position. How likely is it for each of the 17 to eventually make the team? What is the path each player has to make the team?

Some of these players are competing for the returner job and could make the roster solely as a specialist. Others might simply be competing for one of the spots on the team’s practice squad at the end of the summer.
