Neville Hewitt is the next Jet in our roster countdown.
Name: Neville Hewitt
Year with Jets: 1st
Projected Role: Backup inside linebacker
His 2017: Hewitt failed to make the Miami roster out of training camp. He eventually returned to the Dolphins, first on their practice squad and then their active roster. He recorded only a single tackle in limited action.
2018 will be a success if: Hewitt is a capable backup linebacker. Hewitt is out of practice squad eligibility so he will need to make the active roster.
Odds of making the roster: Hewitt is having a strong training camp and has played well in preseason games. People will probably think I am selling him short, but I do not think there is a guarantee he will make the roster. His track record in the league isn’t strong, and there are other inside linebacker options. I think at this point he is 50/50.
