Below are Jets defensive snap totals from Saturday’s preseason victory over Green Bay.
There are a number of spots where playing time is open on the defense. The injury to Carl Lawson opens up an edge rusher spot. Jerrad Davis’ injury does the same thing at linebacker.
Cornerback is full of wild cards. Isiah Dunn got an opportunity in this game. He led all Jets corners with 40 snaps. His performance was inconsistent. That might be what you expect from an undrafted rookie. It isn’t really fair to expect a player like this to be able to compete for a starting role, even one who received record money for an undrafted free agent. This is the situation the Jets find themselves in, however, They are hoping they strike gold with one or more late round young corners. There will be more opportunities to impress in the preseason finale against the Eagles.
