NFL: AUG 15 Preseason - Jets at Falcons Photo by Frank Mattia/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Good morning, GGN! The Jets are preparing for their third pre-season game of 2019 against the New Orleans Saints next Saturday. Most of the starters should get in at least a half of football in that game, maybe more, leaving the backups fighting for limited snaps in the second half. This means it is already very late in the process to nail down back of the roster positions, with a very limited window of opportunity left to move up the depth charts. The final pre-season game comes just five days later, and few if any starters will play in that one. Within two weeks of today the Jets will play two football games, make final cuts, dip into the waiver wire, in all likelihood find a new kicker, perhaps make some trades, and solidify the opening day roster. We are in the homestretch before real football returns. Hallelujah.
