Position Listing
Geno Smith
News
Smith will not play in the Jets' preseason finale Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

It originally sounded as if Smith might see a small sample of snaps during the Jets' final preseason game, but that is no longer the case. In all likelihood Bryce Petty will get the start and rookie Christian Hackenberg will follow suit. Smith's projected absence assures his role as the team's clear-cut backup behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Erin Henderson
News
Henderson (foot) practiced in full on Wednesday, NJ.com reports.

Henderson was sidelined for the Jets' Week 3 bout against the Chiefs after missing each practice throughout the week. Now back in action, he's expected to return for Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks.

Sheldon Richardson
News
Richardson is expected to play in Thursday's game against the Bills after missing Week 1 because of a suspension, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Richardson missed the team's opener due to a one-week suspension for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. He'll be back at practice Monday and should return to the starting lineup at defensive end for the Jets' Week 2 matchup with the Bills. Richardson started 11 games during his 2015 campaign following a four-game suspension to start the year and finished with 35 tackles and five sacks.

Darryl Roberts
News
Roberts (foot) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Bills.

Roberts missed the team's Week 1 tilt and was limited in practice this past week. He's little more than a depth corner and special teams player, so his absence shouldn't have to large of an impact on the Jets' defense.

Matt Forte
News
Forte (knee) practiced fully Thursday.

The Jets plan to limit Forte on Wednesdays, but he's in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Through three weeks, Forte has logged 67 carries, a figure topped only by LeGarrette Blount (75), Lamar Miller (74) and Ezekiel Elliott (71). In the process, Forte has racked up 261 rushing yards with three TDs, to go along with nine catches for 67 yards.

Bruce Carter
News
Carter (shoulder) has been listed as active for Thursday's matchup with the Bills.

Carter was active in Week 1 but never saw the field, and he likely isn't in line for much playing time against Buffalo unless an injury forces him onto the field for extended time.

Juston Burris
News
The Jets selected Burris in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 118th overall.

Burris a big corner who might not have the athleticism to run alongside the league's faster receivers, but college quarterbacks generally declined to throw his way at North Carolina State. The Jets will presumably count on Burris to provide some push in press coverage.

Jarvis Jenkins
News
Jenkins has signed a three-year contract with the Jets, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Jenkins started all 15 games he played for the Bears last season, recording a career-high 32 tackles and four sacks while doing so. In joining the Jets, Jenkins bolsters their front-seven options with another experienced defender.

Kendall James
News
James (undisclosed) has been placed on the active/PUP list, New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports.

The former sixth round pick out of Maine serves primarily as a depth cornerback for the Jets. James will have to prove his worth throughout training camp and the preseason to ensure a spot on the team come September.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Mike Catapano
News
After missing the entire 2014 season with a gastrointestinal virus, Chiefs defensive end Mike Catapano was able to participate in the team's OTA on Wednesday, reports The Kansas City Star.

"Every time I step on the field now it's with purpose and with extra vigor that I never really had," Catapano said. "It feels great. I feel better than ever."

Catapano played in 15 games during his rookie season in 2013 and he totaled four tackles and one sack. He said he's ready to surpass that in 2015.

"I'm ready to show that I offer a lot to this team. I'm ready to step up in big situations and starting situations," Catapano said. "I just want to keep getting better every day… and play to the best of my abilities."

Jordan Jenkins
News
Jenkins (calf) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against Buffalo.

Jenkins missed practice during the week and was doubtful to play on Thursday, making his inactive status unsurprising. Now missing his second straight game, it's unclear when the rookie will make his debut, but the long week prior to the team's Week 3 game may be enough for him to return by then.

Charone Peake
News
Peake caught four passes for 45 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Thursday's preseason opener against the Jaguars.

A seventh-round rookie who spent most of his college career buried on a deep Clemson depth chart, Peake got off to a strong start in his bid to earn a roster spot with the Jets. He made a gorgeous sideline catch for a 17-yard touchdown late in the second quarter, and then had a 19-yard gain midway through the third quarter. While not necessarily a lock to make the team, Peake could conceivably compete for the No. 4 wideout role in an offense that frequently used four-wide formations last year. He ran a 4.45 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine while checking in at 6-foot-2, 209 pounds.

Christian Hackenberg
News
Hackenberg did not play in Friday's preseason game against Washington, and he is unlikely to play in the Jets' third preseason game next week against the Giants, the New York Post reports.

Bryce Petty played the entire second half for the Jets and appears to be in serious contention for the backup job. With the Jets expected to play most of their starters into the second half against the Giants, Hackenberg will only have their final preseason game to make a case for a roster spot.

Troymaine Pope
News
Pope was claimed off waivers by the Jets on Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

Prior to his release, Pope led Seattle with 162 rushing yards during preseason play. Despite the Seahawks' interest in keeping the Jacksonville State product on the team's practice squad, the Jets were able to snag the rookie before he could clear waivers. Given the Jets' depth at running back, Pope figures to make his biggest impact on special teams.

Marcus Gilchrist
News
Gilchrist recorded three tackles Sunday against the Jaguars.

Although Blake Bortles through 40 passes in this game, Gilchrist failed to record an interception in his third straight contest. In addition, he now has recorded fewer than four tackles in five of his last seven games.

Julian Stanford
News
The Lions put cornerback Nevin Lawson (dislocated toes) on injured reserve, signed cornerback Danny Gorrer and promoted linebacker Julian Stanford from the practice squad.
Antonio Allen
News
Allen has signed with the Jets.

Allen spent the entirety of the 2015 season recovering from a torn achilles he suffered during training camp, and signed with the Texans in March of 2016 before being released by the team during final roster cuts. However, it didn't take long for Allen to get scooped up by his old squad. He spent the first three seasons of his career with the Jets, starting 18 of 38 games, but returns to New York firmly entrenched behind Marcus Gilchrist on the free safety depth chart.

Jake Ceresna
Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 4 vs. Seattle
Lac Edwards
No Updates
Darron Lee
News
The Jets selected Lee in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 20th overall.

Lee is generally light to project as a 3-4 inside linebacker, but coach Todd Bowles might have seen Deone Bucannon in Arizona last year and got some ideas. Lee is an exceptional athlete for a linebacker, boasting 4.47 speed and a 133-inch broad jump, and he should prove to be a disruptive presence under Bowles' watch. In addition to his burning athleticism, Lee demonstrated at least adequate instincts at Ohio State and consistently showed a high motor.

Eric Decker
News
Decker had one catch on six targets for 31 yards during Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Chiefs.

The Jets' passing game was abysmal Sunday, with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing six interceptions, including five in the second half. While the picks certainly didn't help, Decker was also not targeted all that much, as Quincy Enunwa (11), Brandon Marshall (10) and Bilal Powell (seven) all had more passes thrown their way. Unfortunately for Decker, the schedule doesn't provide much optimism that he'll bounce back, as the Jets will host the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to face the Steelers and Cardinals.

Injury
Shoulder - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 4 vs. Seattle
Robby Anderson
News
Anderson started and caught four passes (on nine targets) for 65 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.

Anderson was promoted to the Jets' first-team offense for Saturday's game in light of Brandon Marshall (hip), Quincy Enunwa (concussion) and Kenbrell Thompkins (groin) being injured, and impressed once again. The undrafted rookie led New York in receptions, targets and yards, while also scoring for the second straight game. Although Anderson's touchdown came during the fourth quarter, he's now totaled 10 receptions for 196 yards and two scores in the Jets' last two exhibition tilts. With great size, speed and production, Anderson seems to have everything necessary to make New York's regular season roster and push for higher pegging after another strong showing.

Julien Obioha
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Deon Simon
News
Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland (concussion) did not travel with the team to London, where the team plays the Dolphins on Sunday.

With the Jets having waived nose tackle Deon Simon after practice Wednesday, we'd expect the team to add tight end depth to the roster in advance of the game.

Brandon Shell
No Updates
Quincy Enunwa
News
Enunwa had four catches on a team-high 11 targets for 37 yards during Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Chiefs.

While the number of targets for Enunwa is certainly encouraging, only four receptions is a disappointment. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was downright awful Sunday, as he was picked off six times, including five in the second half, giving the Jets' receivers little to work with for fantasy purposes. Top wideout Brandon Marshall came in with knee and foot injuries, though he still had 10 targets, while Eric Decker was limited to just six, showing that Fitzpatrick is getting more comfortable throwing to Enunwa. Unfortunately, the upcoming schedule is very tough, with the Jets hosting the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to face the Steelers and Cardinals.

Leonard Williams
News
Williams is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Williams dealt with a hip injury during the preseason, but was a full participant in practice Friday and looks to be good to go against Cincinnati. He will take his position opposite Muhammad Wilkerson on the defensive line.

Bryce Petty
News
Petty (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Petty's shoulder injury continued to keep him sidelined through practice this week and will leave him inactive for a third straight game to begin his career. As a result, Geno Smith will serve as the Jets' backup to starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick this Sunday.

Injury
Shoulder - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 4 vs. Seattle
Darrelle Revis
News
Revis (ankle) was a full participant in practice on Thursday.

Revis is expected to be ready all-go for Sunday's tilt with the Seahawks as he'll matchup with Doug Baldwin. His ankle will be something to keep an eye on as Juston Burris could see increased action reps if the team decides to monitor Revis's action.

Muhammad Wilkerson
News
Wilkerson (ankle) was limited in Monday's practice.

Wilkerson was very active on the field in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, as he led the team with seven tackles. He also recorded 1.5 sacks. The severity of the veteran linebacker's ankle injury is unknown, so his status will need to be monitored throughout the week.

Nick Mangold
News
Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin has been declared inactive for Week 17’s game against the Dolphins.

Harvin is nursing a rib injury he suffered during Week 16’s game against the Patriots.

Also listed as inactive are T.J. Barnes, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Wesley Johnson, Nick Mangold, Walt Powell and Matt Simms.

Dexter McDougle
News
McDougle was waived by the Jets on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

McDougle was originally drafted in the third round of the 2014 draft, but his rookie season was quickly derailed by a torn ACL. The Jets had hoped that McDougle would rebound in 2015, but the 25-year-old never seemed to return to his old self after the injury.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 4 vs. Seattle
Bilal Powell
News
Powell was barely involved in the offense during Thursday's 37-31 victory over the Bills, tallying only one carry for two yards and securing one of two targets for a yard.

Matt Forte received a career-high 30 carries, leaving Powell a mere spectactor for the majority of the night. He did see a more appreciable level of involvement in the Week 1 loss to the Bengals when he tallied four carries and two receptions, so Thursday's meager opportunity may have simply been a case of the Jets opting to stick to a power running game with Forte. Powell did see a solid amount of work in offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's first season in New York in 2015, notching a career-best 47 receptions to go along with 70 rushing attempts. Therefore, his involvement figures to adjust into a more predictable pattern as the season unfolds

Brandon Bostick
News
The Vikings have claimed former Packers tight end Brandon Bostick, the team announced on Wednesday.

The 6-foor-3, 250-pound tight end was waived by Green Bay on Monday, about a month after his mistake on an onside kick allowed the Seahawks to come back and win the NFC Championship Game. Bostick spent two seasons with the Packers and registered nine catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns. With the addition of Bostick, the Vikings now have five tight ends on the active roster (Kyle Rudolph, Rhett Ellison, Chase Ford, Ryan Otten).

Calvin Pryor
News
Pryor ended the 2015 season with two interceptions, a forced fumble and 69 tackles.

Although Pryor only played in 13 games this year, he showed improvement in his second season, as he intercepted the first two passes of his career and increased his tackle total by nine from his rookie year. He's clearly in position to continue his progression, especially with head coach Todd Bowles preparing for his second season with the team's defensive system. Pryor's under contract for two more years with the Jets before the team can choose to exercise a fifth-year option in 2018.

Wendall Williams
News
Williams was cut by the Texans on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Williams was essentially fighting for a special teams spot given how deep the Texans currently are at wide receiver. If Williams does now get looks from other teams, it will likely be as a kick or punt returner.

Bryson Keeton
News
Keeton was let go by the Jets on Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Keeton had his eyes set on providing depth in the defensive backfield for the Jets. Specifically, he was competing with Marcus Williams to backup Buster Skrine at right cornerback. The 23-year-old rookie recorded one pass defended and four tackles in as many preseason games.

Tanner Purdum
News
Long snapper Tanner Purdum has re-signed with the Jets, according to the Associated Press.

Purdum, 29, has played 783 snaps since joining the Jets. He has never fumbled a snap, had a wild snap or been penalized.

Julian Howsare
News
Howsare was cut by the Jets on Thursday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

The Jets opted to part ways with Howsare after realizing there was no team need for a fullback. Chan Gailey's offense runs much more fluidly without one. Howsare could find a new home at some point this season, but it doesn't seem like the Jets are interested in bringing him back assuming he clears waivers.

Ryan Fitzpatrick
News
Fitzpatrick completed 20 of 44 passes for 188 yards, but he was picked off six times during Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Chiefs.

Two of Fitzpatrick's interceptions were tipped and picked off in the end zone, but it was still a disastrous outing, with five of the interceptions coming in the second half. Amazingly, the Jets had the ball down only two scores with about five minutes left in the game, but Fitzpatrick couldn't get them into the end zone. He targeted Quincy Enunwa 11 times and Brandon Marshall 10, but neither caught more than four, and Bilal Powell led the team with 41 receiving yards. Fitzpatrick will look to put the horrible performance behind him, though the schedule only gets tougher, as the Jets will host the Seahawks in Week 4 before traveling to Pittsburgh and Arizona.

Doug Middleton
No Updates
Josh Martin
News
Martin (ankle) was not listed on the Jets' injury report Wednesday.

It remains unclear how and when Martin suffered the injury, but it ultimately proved to be minor in nature. Now healthy, Martin will likely operate as a depth linebacker Week 1 when the Jets face off against the Bengals.

Kellen Davis
News
Davis was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

Davis, who was limited on the field Monday, was given the green light for Tuesday's practice session after he injured his ribs during Sunday's loss to the Bengals. The Jets have a quick turnaround this week, as they face the Bills on Thursday, so look for more updates on his health to come in the next couple of days.

David Harris
News
Harris (shoulder) is active for Week 3's matchup with the Chiefs, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Harris was listed as questionable heading into the game after being limited in practice all week due to shoulder injury he suffered in Week 2's win over the Bills. The veteran could be closely monitored due to the injury, meaning Bruce Carter could see extra reps in Sunday's contest.

Victor Ochi
No Updates
Jalin Marshall
News
Marshall (shoulder) is expected to be out for a couple weeks according to coach Todd Bowles, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Marshall was unable to practice Wednesday and will now be expected to miss an extended period of time. The Jets will have to deploy a new return man along with Robby Anderson and Charone Peake potentially seeing increased reps at wide receiver.

Injury
Shoulder - Did Not Practice on Thursday. Out for Week 4 vs. Seattle
Lawrence Thomas
News
Thomas (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve, the team announced Thursday.

Just a day after head coach Todd Bowles originally said that Thomas would miss "at least a couple weeks" with a torn labrum, Thomas was placed on injured reserve, so the timetable for his return is still up in the air. Sheldon Richardson and Jarvis Jenkins will likely see an increase in snaps with Thomas out. Jeremy Ross was signed Thursday to the team's open roster spot.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Ryan Clady
News
The Broncos placed left tackle Ryan Clady on injured reserve due to a torn ACL on Sunday, the team announced. 

Clady tore his ACL this past Wednesday during an organized team activity practice. The Broncos signed Ryan Harris to the roster soon after announcing Clady sustained a season-ending injury. 

Injury
Shoulder - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 4 vs. Seattle
Craig Watts
News
The Chargers announced their final round of roster cuts on Saturday, paring their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

The following players were let go by San Diego: WR Vincent Brown, LB Victor Aiyewa, DT Chas Alecxih, WR Torrence Allen, CB Crezdon Butler, S Alden Darby, CB Greg Ducre, TE Mike Flacco, T Michael Harris , WR Javontee Herndon, OLB Thomas Keiser, DL Joe Kruger, OLB Cordarro Law, S Adrian Phillips, WR Tevin Reese, T Jeremiah Sirles, QB Brad Sorensen, OLB Colton Underwood, G Craig Watts, T Kenny Wiggins, C Khalil Wilkes and DL Doug Worthington.
Rontez Miles
News
Miles recorded just one tackle during the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

Miles stepped up after Calvin Pryor briefly left the game due to injury. The 27-year-old has not seen a lot of action since undergoing season-ending surgery on his shin back in 2014.

Ben Ijalana
News
The Jets lost three players to concussions and three others to an assortment of injuries in Friday's preseason game against Atlanta, per ESPN.

Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, safety Durell Eskridge and running back Daryl Richardson all left with concussions.

Offensive tackle Ben Ijalana left the game with a knee injury. Shaq Evans sprained his back, and Sashaun Phillips hurt his ribs.

Wesley Johnson
News
Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin has been declared inactive for Week 17’s game against the Dolphins.

Harvin is nursing a rib injury he suffered during Week 16’s game against the Patriots.

Also listed as inactive are T.J. Barnes, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Wesley Johnson, Nick Mangold, Walt Powell and Matt Simms.

James Carpenter
News
The Jets will sign free agent guard James Carpenter to a four-year, $19 million deal, reports Yahoo Sports. Carpenter started 39 games for the Seahawks over the past four seasons.

Deals can't be signed until 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.

Marcus Williams
News
Williams (knee) is active for Saturday's game against the Cowboys.

Williams missed the previous two games with a knee injury, but he was able to practice fully all week in preparation for Saturday's game. However, with Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie fully healthy heading into the marquee matchup, Williams only figures to see the field in obvious passing situations.

Lorenzo Mauldin
News
Mauldin is expected to be the starting weakside linebacker this season, ESPN.com reports.

Mauldin was a solid pass-rusher last season, but the Jets will need him to develop into a three-down player after they let Quinton Coples go last season and were forced to use defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson on the weak side. With Damon Harrison off to the Giants, the Jets will need their linebackers to step up in their run defense, which could generate plenty of tackles for Mauldin.

Romar Morris
News
Morris was waived by the Jets on Monday with an injury designation, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

Morris was competing for a spot in the crowded Jets backfield prior to being released. He injured his shoulder and will require surgery, which was the reason for the team deciding to part ways. He'll be eligible for the injured reserve list if he clears waivers.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Nick Folk
News
Folk connected on 3 of 4 field goal attempts and 1 of 2 PATs during Sunday's 23-22 loss to the Bengals.

Folk's misses proved to be very costly in a game the Jets ultimately lost by one, with his field-goal miss coming on a 22-yard attempt (in fairness, it was blocked) and his missed extra point coming on his very next try. He was a fairly reliable option last season, and the Jets' offense is good enough to give him enough opportunities to stay fantasy relevant, but Folk is far from a high-end option. Up next is a Week 2 trip to Buffalo.

Breno Giacomini
News
Free agent tackle Corey Hilliard is expected to meet with the Jets, per Pro Football Talk.

Hilliard has played eight seasons in the NFL, the last six with the Lions.

Hilliard missed most of 2014 with a foot injury suffered during the season opener.

If the Jets sign Hilliard it's expected he'll serve as a swing tackle behind D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Breno Giacomini.
Injury
Back - Physically Unable to Perform
Dakota Dozier
News
The Jets have ruled the following players inactive for Sunday's divisional clash against the Patriots in Week 16: T.J. Barnes, Dakota Dozier, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Wesley Johnson, Rontez Miles, Walt Powell and Matt Simms.
Brent Qvale
News
The Jets have cut their roster down to 53 by waiving a number of players.

Those on offense are quarterback Tajh Boyd and Matt Simms, wide receivers Clyde Gates and Stephen Hill, running backs Daryl Richardson and Alex Green, tight end Chris Pantale, linemen Brent Qvale and Caleb Schlauderaff.

The defenders imclude defensive backs Rontez Miles, Jeremy Reeves, Johnny Patrick, Dimitri Patterson and Brandon Dixon, linemen Zach Thompson, Kerry Hyder and Tevita Finau and linebackers Garrett McIntyre and A.J. Edds.

Linebacker Antwan Barnes has been placed on the PUP list.

Smith (knee) was officially placed on the physically unable to perform/active list Sunday, which means he will not be able to practice or play for the Jets for the first six weeks of the season.

Smith tore his ACL back in December and was always a strong candidate to be placed on the PUP list. His absence shouldn't shake up the depth chart too much, especially with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker expected to dominate the wideout targets this season.

Ronald Martin
News
Martin was waived by the Jets on Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The 23-year-old appeared in just eight games for the Jets last season, serving mostly as a backup safety. Martin is eligible to be a member of the team's practice squad should be go unclaimed.

Steve McLendon
News
McLendon had five tackles, including two sacks, during Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

McLendon was an unsung player among the Jets' defensive line, with Muhammad Wilkerson (1.5 sacks) and Leonard Williams (2.5 sacks) getting most of the attention Sunday. Despite the strong performance, his playing time isn't likely to be as high in Week 2 when the Jets will have Sheldon Richardson available after a Week 1 suspension.

Braedon Bowman
News
Bowman signed with the Jets on Friday, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Bowman will likely serve as a special teamer this season. The Jets rarely use their tight ends other than for blocking purposes, so even if Bowman earned the chance to play on offense, it is unlikely that he would hold great fantasy value.

Brian Winters
News
The Jets ruled out linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee), wideout Greg Salas (wrist/ankle) and offensive lineman Brian Winters (knee) from Thursday's game at New England.
Dee Milliner
News
The Jets waived/injured Milliner (undisclosed) on Saturday, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.

After Milliner's fifth-year option was declined in the offseason, his inability to contribute this preseason may have made the decision an easy one for the Jets. If he clears waivers, the 2013 first-round pick could revert to injury reserve, but the two parties may instead seek an injury settlement.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 4 vs. Seattle
Brandon Marshall
News
Marshall (foot/knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Marshall is out there if you need him Sunday, but it's unclear how close to full strength he will operate at. With that in mind, both ESPN's Adam Schefter and ESPN's Rich Cimini suggest that the wideout will likely will be on some sort of snap count in Week 3 that could possibly emphasize third down and red zone work.

Dominique Williams
News
Williams (concussion) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.

Even if he were healthy, Williams would face long odds to make the final roster. Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson are all locks, and Antone Smith was recently signed to compete for the No. 4 job.

Buster Skrine
News
The Jets will make their 2015 season debut Sunday against the Browns, and the team will have plenty of new defensive acquisitions on display.

The secondary will feature the additions of cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie, nickel corner Buster Skrine and free safety Marcus Gilchrist. Plus, first-round pick Leonard Williams will move into the starting lineup due to Sheldon Richardson's four-game suspension.

"I believe we can be as good as we want," defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson said, per NJ.com. "We can be great. We can be the No. 1 defense in the league. We've just got to come in each and every week improving and do our jobs every Sunday."

The Jets defense is expected to be aggressive, especially with the blitz, under first-year coach Todd Bowles.

"This defense should be a playoff defense," Skrine said. "The defense should get us in the playoffs. We have the defense to it. We've got a lot of talent on this defense. It's just about all coming together."
