Today is final roster cuts day, and the New York Jets have finalized (for now) their 53 man roster. Keep in mind this will very likely not be the 53 man roster the Jets field on opening day. Trades might still happen, and all players cut by the 32 NFL teams this weekend are in play. Players with less than four years of NFL experience are subject to the NFL waiver process. All such players can be claimed off of waivers by any NFL team, and they will be awarded to the team with the highest waiver priority, which is the same as the 2019 NFL draft order (prior to any trades). Thus the Arizona Cardinals have first priority on all waiver claims; the Jets rank third in priority and will only be awarded players passing through waivers if neither of the two teams ahead of them (Arizona and San Francisco) have put in a claim. All cut players with four or more years of NFL experience do not pass through waivers. Instead, they immediately become unrestricted free agents and may be signed by any team.

For now, subject to likely changes over the next few days, here is the Jets 53 man roster:

Quarterbacks (2): Sam Darnold, Trevor Siemian

Running Backs (4): Le’Veon Bell, Ty Montgomery, Bilal Powell, Trenton Cannon

Tight Ends (3): Ryan Griffin, Trevon Wesco, Daniel Brown

Defensive Line (8): Leonard Williams, Quinnen Williams, Nathan Shepherd, Kyle Phillips, Bronson Kaufusi, Steve McLendon, Henry Anderson, Folorunso Fatukasi

Linebackers (8): Jordan Jenkins, C.J. Mosley, Blake Cashman, Tarell Basham, Harvey Langi, Albert McClellan, Frankie Luvu, Neville Hewitt

Cornerbacks (5): Trumaine Johnson, Darryl Roberts, Brian Poole, Nate Hairston, Arthur Maulet
