Posted 12 Sep 2016with richardson being added to the roster now following his suspension, who is gonna get cut?
Dion Simon or jarvis jenkins (they played the least out of our lineman yesterday)
LB Julian Stanford - didn't see any action yesterday
TE breadon bowman didn't see any snaps yesterday. we barely used TEs, why keep 3?

Some thoughts and notes
WRs - will be interesting to see what happens when smith comes back. Jets may opt to keep him on IR for the season.
QBs - we kept 4, might have been better to take the easy way out and put petty on IR to stash him. Not sure why the jets didn't. Geno is the backup for the season now.
Update for 9/7
added 3 players to the PS. 2 RBs and martin
Added Antonio Allen to active roster
removed TE Parker from roster (was waived after failing physical)
These moves fix my DB and TE concerns with the roster, removed them from comments
Removed LB Reilly, jets reached an injury settlement with him
Updated, removed TE bowman and added richardson to active roster
Removed Victor Ochi as possibly practice squad player
Moved jalin marshall to 4th WR
Moved Richardson in as a starter and off suspended list.
Moved DE thomas up on depth chart
FB Howsare released
TE Bowman added to roster

Williams/wilk/richardson - were breaking in easy all game and harassing eli. our D-line looked unstoppable
1st team defense - completely shut down the giants. 0 plays in our territory. odb and cruz did nothing. run game stuffed
Pryor - looks like a beats flying around, had a sack and was all over the field. also gave ODB alligator arms
anderson - 4 for 67 yards and a TD, he has amazing hands and ball skills. he could grow into something special for us.
Sudfeld - looks like our best TE in the preseason
martin - isn't making the team but was 2/2 on FGs including a 55 yarder he nailed with ease
Clady - shut down JPP completly
Revis - where was ODB all game?
Decker - made jenkins his bitch on the TD grab
Up and Down
Hack - had a really nice 80 TD yard Drive, but the rest of his work was pretty bad
Milliner - let up some plays, but also had solid coverage most of the time. Also dropped an INT on a great play. He looks a lot better
1st team offense overall - only 7 points against giants 1st team weak defense. 3 turnover for the jets as well
Ijalana - was manhandled by oliver all day
Burris - struggling at CB as a rookie. He's having a real hard time.
Posted 23 Aug 2016So i wanted to look into our cap situation, not just for this year but next as well.
Currently we sit at 1.4 million left
I believe we will give young WRs a shot and cut ross and thompkins which would give us roughly another 1.3 million upping it to 2.7 mil for the year
I assume we don't pay anyone else, we could cut geno and save another 600k, but i doubt it. So I'm going to go with 2.7 mil
As of now our 2017 cap room is -2.6 mil. With the carry over above, we will basically have 0 cap room for free agents or rookies so we will need to clear some up.
Lets look at key free agents we have in 2017
Ryan fitzpatrick - will count 5 mil against our cap in 2017 but isn't under contract after signing a (pretty much) 1 year deal. If hack isn't ready to go and petty doesn't step up we could need to work out a deal for him. not to mention geno will be a free agent as well and no way we resign him
Dee Milliner - former 1st round pick is at the end of his deal. Unless he makes big strides this off season, I can't see him coming back
Brian Winters - solid G we will probably want to bring back
Marcus Williams - could earn the nickel back spot this year. If he plays like he did last year, the jets will want to keep him around. Could cost a lot of he has a big season
So from that, we would need to resign 2-3 players plus have room for rookies. Luckily outside of fitz, the rest are pretty expendable.
Now how can we clear money?
Ryan clady 10.5 mil - I can't see us cutting him. he'll turn 30 which isn't old for a lineman. If he stays healthy and plays well, I could see the jets giving him a multi year deal to lower his 2017 cap number. Est savings 3 mil
Sheldon Richardson 8 mil - final year is a 5th year option at 8 mil. A real steal for his talent. but with wilk making 17 mil a year and williams still on a rookie deal through 2018. we will likely not take the option or better case take the option and trade him for at least a 2nd rounder. savings 8 mil
David harris 6.5 mil - and no dead money if cut. I doubt he will be worth that price. we just drafted lee and henderson has played very well, I can't see paying this much for a 30+ year old 2 down LBer. He'll retire or be released IMO. best case is he stays on and takes a pay cut in half in a limited role. But my prediction is he will be gone. Savings 6.5 mil
Breno 5 mil - a decent player but I think a young lineman will step up for us allowing him to be cut. way too much money for a below average RT. savings 4.5 mil
So basically by clearing out 2 over the hill vets, trading a young start, and reworking a good LT contract, we can clear out 22 million in space without hurting the team overall. Now how can we spend that 22 mil? sounds like a lot right? well it isn't. Rookie contract will be about 4 mil leaving us 18 mil overall
Resign fitz - we will pretty much have too. will probably suck again like it did this year. hack needs 2-3 years sitting and petty isn't an NFL starter. we can do another creative contract so I'll go ahead and say 7 mil cost (and 5 mil in the 2018 cap) just like we did this year. he'll count 12 against the cap total in 2017 this way Now we are down to 11 mil
Resign winters and williams - both shouldn't cost much. we always need lineman and CBs. williams can remain our nickel with burris in the dime. Skrine and revis remain starters. Est cost between the 2? 7 mil now we are down to 4 million
So basically we are left with 4 million. enough to sign a decent veteran player to fill a hole. Thankfully I don't see many holes in the 2017 roster plus we have the draft to fill needs
Possible FAs in that price range?
Jermaine Greshham TE - solid TE, better then what we have. would instantly improve our offense
Joe Hawley C - solid backup lineman. could even start at guard for us if needed
Andre smith - upgrade at RT from breno.
Evan mathis G - older lineman who is still a solid starter
Not much there. So don't expect our 2017 roster to look much different then it is now. Hitting on some instant impact players in the draft would go a long way
Posted 22 Aug 2016Studs
Leonard Williams - another game he looked good and disruptive. had another nice sack
Robbie Anderson - We might have another player at WR here. I know stats don't mean everything, but 6 for 131 and a TD with a long of 50 (and the TD was the go ahead one late in the game for 42 yards) http://www.nfl.com/g...7930&tab=videos He ran routes, showed good hands and good ball skills on a day where our other WRs didn't. If he keeps this up, it wouldn't surprise me of he stays. We have a hell of a battle at WR. the top 4 spots are locked with enunwa, B marshall, smith, and decker. but ross, peake, j.marshall thompkins, and now anderson are fighting for 2 spots
lac Edwards - Dude can flat out punt. big improvement from our punters the past 5 years or so.
Revis - looked good out there period. had a TD saving INT in the end zone, tackled well, covered well and looked like a stud
Up and Down Since it's preseason, a new category for people who made some plays but also failed sometimes
Petty - scored our only 2 TDs, had a couple of nice throws to anderson including the go ahead TD on a 42 yarder with 4 mins left. How ever he did fumble twice and miss some wide open throws and the 50 yarder to anderson was under thrown or it would have been a 70+ yard TD
Sudfeld - Had a couple nice grabs including a good TD in traffic. But also had a costly fumble
J Marshall - had some nice grabs but also a few drops as well.
Jusitn burris - had some really nice coverage on some plays and played the ball well, but also gave up the game losing TD (although his coverage was really good) and extended that drive with a penalty.
Fitz and Geno - both were ineffective, and geno threw an INT on a terrible throw into triple coverage.
Kellen Davis - seriously cut this bum and run with sudfeld and amaro. Drops almost everything and had a fumble.
R. martin - missed an XP, he isn't taking folks job for sure.
