NY Jets podcast: The reliables

NFL: New York Jets at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

On yesterday’s podcast we discussed some of the wild cards on the Jets roster as we prepare for the 2018 season. It isn’t clear how much value those players will provide. It could be a lot. It could be a little.

Today we look at the sure things on the roster. That shouldn’t be taken to mean any of these players is a 100% bet to be productive. Such a player does not exist in the NFL. Injuries, decline, or just a bad season can happen to anybody who suits up. The odds to seem in favor of these guys producing and being productive. Their skillsets and track records suggest just that.

These players are not necessarily superstars. We will not necessarily see them carry the Jets on their backs. In many cases, they are role players whom we can count on to do their jobs effectively, even if it comes without much fanfare.
