The next Jet in our roster countdown is Charone Peake.

Name: Charone Peake

Number: 17

Year with Jets: 3rd

Projected Role: Backup wide receiver/special teamer

His 2017: Peake suffered an early season ankle injury and was placed on injured reserve as a result. He didn’t make much of an impact as a result.

2018 will be a success if: Peake has success when called upon as a wide receiver and special teamer. If he makes the team, it probably will have more to do with his work on specials. The Jets will have plenty of wide receivers in front of him on the depth chart.

Odds of making the roster: The reason I keep talking about special teams for Peake is that it might be his path to a surprise roster spot. There will be a tight battle for the last receiver spot, and it could be a tiebreaker. Contributions on specials could even justify keeping an extra player at a position. Still, with so many players competing for a spot I can’t go better than 50/50.
