New York Jets – What About The Middle Class?

Joe Caporoso on the questions around the middle class of the New York Jets roster

The New York Jets have struggled in recent NFL Drafts, to put it politely. We don’t need to rehash the abnormally high volume of players selected from 2015-2018 who are no longer here (we can save that until after the final 53 is confirmed) but it creates a burden for the roster to overcome as they deal with the normal perils of NFL training camp. Injuries (Avery Williamson) happen. Suspensions (Chris Herndon) happen. When they do, it is critical for the “middle class” of your roster to rise to the occasion to properly support the top talent. 

This Jets roster is more “top heavy” than it has been since 2015. Jamal Adams, CJ Mosley and Le’Veon Bell are legitimate All-Pro candidates. Sam Darnold is expected to take a major leap in year two. Quinnen Williams was the third pick in the NFL Draft. Kelechi Osemele has been an All-Pro when healthy and former top six pick Leonard Williams is entering the season with high expectations in a contract year. Yet, it may be the lesser known names who make or break the Jets ending their eight year playoff drought…

New York Jets – A Closer Look at New Jets TE Ryan Griffin

Stephen Russo with a closer look at New York Jets tight end Ryan Griffin

The Jets have been longing for a true pass catching threat at the tight end position since Dustin Keller, and they just might have struck gold with Chris Herndon. Herndon, a pleasant surprise from the fourth round in 2018, showed his all-around ability as a pass catcher, blocker, and consistent security blanket for Sam Darnold, especially in unscripted moments. Sadly, Herndon’s looming four game suspension to start the season leaves the Jets with question marks at the position yet again. With only Eric Tomlinson (yikes) and unproven rookie Trevon Wesco on the roster, the Jets moved to sign six-year veteran Ryan Griffin after he was cut by the Texans. Can Griffin be the guy to hold down the fort in Herndon’s absence?

Should You Bet on the Jets to Make the Playoffs This Season?

With just four wins last season and no more than five since 2015, we could be forgiven for not getting too carried away with the Jets’ chances in the upcoming season. But there is a sense of renewed optimism in the organization that could end up surprising a few teams this year.
