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?
