New York Jets – Establishing The “Middle Class”

Can the New York Jets re-establish the “middle class” of their roster?

An essential part of any quality NFL roster is a well-established “middle class” of talent. These are the players who aren’t your headline names or playmakers nor are they bottom of the roster depth guys. Generally, they are competent starters and reserve players who are talented enough to be regular contributors without consistently hurting your team. In 2009 and 2010, the Jets had a wealth of these players. Yet as the roster deteriorated at the top and bottom, the middle suffered as well. A huge part of the Jets rebuilding process will be reestablishing this middle class of talent.

New York Jets Sign WR Ben Obomanu, Other OTA Notes

Thoughts on the New York Jets signing wide receiver Obomanu and other notes from today’s OTA practice

The New York Jets made an intriguing signing today, bringing in former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ben Obomanu. Since coming into the league in 2007, Obomanu has racked up 87 receptions, 1,209 yards and 7 touchdowns. In 2011, he started 7 games for the Seahawks, finishing with 37 receptions for 436 yards. He was gradually bumped down the depth chart in 2012 and made an impact in only one game last year for Seattle, pulling in 3 catches for 50 yards against the San Francisco 49ers. It is worth noting, Obomanu does have 15 career post-season catches for 174 yards in four career games, so he has experience in big spots.

New York Jets – Offensive Versatility Will Be Critical

The New York Jets skill position players on offense need to be versatile to compensate for the team’s lack of overall depth
