Podcast: Previewing the Jets Tight End Position

Syndication: The Record Chris Pedota, NorthJersey.com via Imagn Content Services, LLC

On today’s podcast we continue the positional preview series by discussing tight end. This is the final position left to preview. Next we will move onto the defensive side of the ball.

Tight end is a bit of an enigma for the Jets. It isn’t clear who will start. It isn’t entirely clear what the team has. There really isn’t much in the way of proven talent, although there is a degree of upside.

It is difficult to know what to project out of most of these players, but the role does matter. In the offense the Jets are installing the tight end might have a fairly significant role. I am sure Mike LaFleur wishes he could just bring George Kittle with him, but the Jets don’t necessarily need that type of player for the offense to work. They just could use somebody who can give them quality snaps.

Thanks for listening.
