Joe Caporoso with a 53 man roster prediction for the New York Jets heading into their final pre-season game
Since our last roster prediction prior to training camp, plenty has changed around the New York Jets roster. Players have exceeded expectations. Players have disappeared. Players have been signed, hyped up an excessive amount and then released (hey, Braylon Edwards). With the final pre-season game only two days away, here is how I see the final 53 man roster shaking out, bearing in mind a few free agents could still be brought in prior to the season kicking off.

Dan Marcus on what New York Jets quarterback gives the team the best chance to win
With the Jets Quarterback “Competition” coming (hopefully) to an inevitable culmination sometime after Saturday’s preseason game against the Giants, the length of time it has taken to arrive at any type of decision has caused a stir among members of the media. The Daily News’ Manish Mehta went so far as to call the whole thing a “farce,” a charade orchestrated by John Idzik to make it seem as though his Second-round draft pick wasn’t merely being handed the job. With Manish, I really can never be sure if he’s operating on information from one of his infamous unnamed sources or if it’s merely conjecture. Thus far, to the objective observer, it seems as though Sanchez is the “leader in the clubhouse” to get the nod Week 1 but according to Mehta’s report, all Smith needs to do is play a couple quarters of mistake-free football and the job is his.
