Jets podcast: Who needs a big preseason finale?

NFL: New York Jets at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

We are almost at the end of the preseason. That is exciting since it means the regular season is right around the corner, and we will soon get to watch real football.

One preseason game remains. The Jets take on the Eagles on Thursday night in a game unlikely to see any starters take the field for either side. This final preseason game is usually viewed as the least important for that reason.

The game does have importance for some players, however. There are still roster spots to be determined. The Jets will need to cut their roster down from 90 players to 53 on Saturday afternoon. This preseason finale will be one final chance for bubble players to show the Jets that they deserve a spot.

On today’s podcast we look at some players who could use a good final preseason game. For the most part, these are guys who have had a quiet training camp and/or have stood out in a negative way. At this point, it isn’t clear how much one good preseason game would move the needle against a month’s worth of poor practices and games, but it is all these guys have left.
