New York Jets – The 2017 Training Camp Preview: Is The Tank Rolling?

Joe Caporoso on what to expect from New York Jets training camp

The New York Jets begin 2017 training camp this week amidst their lowest expectations since before the 2013 season. Many believe this is the worst team in the NFL, if not at least in the discussion for it. The offseason saw a full clean out of veterans, as the team only has four players over 30 years old and twelve players 28 years old or older.

Head Coach Todd Bowles is on a scalding hot seat. GM Mike Maccagnan is on a somewhat warm seat. Owner Woody Johnson is picking out his new flat in London as the UK Ambassador. The favorite to win the quarterback competition is 2-20 in his past 22 starts. Are the Jets in full tank mode or is this team going to overachieve thanks to an under appreciated amount of young talent? 

Let’s preview what we will see in rural North Jersey over next month or so. Football is back. Click on the player’s names below for a film breakdown of their game or a deeper dive into their expected 2017 role.

The New York Jets have taken a public beating this offseason and are in the midst of their third longest playoff drought in franchise history. This means it is time for a good old fashioned vent on the other 31 teams in the NFL. Yes, this is completely bitter and yes many, if not all, of these teams may be better than the Jets in 2017. Yes, I do not care because we are only 8 days away from players reporting to camp and having much more SERIOUS content on the way.
