They can't overhaul the whole line. Harrison is a good safety net if Long struggles again. The Jets used the International Pathway Program exemption on Holmes, giving them an 11th practice squad spot, but Holmes can not be called up to the active roster this season. Behind them, Elijah McGuire had only limited flashes. Otherwise, this remains one of the league's weakest groups. Harrison is a versatile backup who can play guard or center. Berrios, who they claimed off waivers from the Patriots this week, will be the punt returner and the Jets believe in him as a slot receiver.

That leaves Green as a perfectly acceptable option, as the Jets seek a No. At 5-9, 177 pounds, Crowder uses his quickness to get open and dart after the catch. Let's presume they get an edge rusher in free agency. Analysis: Darnold finished his rookie season strong and appears ready to take a major step forward. But while the talent at the top of the roster has indisputably improved, there are some major depth question marks that threaten to undermine this season.

Roberts was a first-team All-Pro selection as a returner in 2018 and could be re-signed, especially if the Jets are wary of turning the returner duties over to Cannon. But he’s never played in an NFL game. This is the Jets’ deepest defensive unit.

Gregg Williams made a surprising-but-wise move in sticking with a base 3-4 defense in New York.

The Jets get the big fish in free agency. But we won’t know for sure until the 22-year-old gets on the field in games that count. The Jets will be in constant attack mode, and they now have the ideal three-man heat to set the tone.

Rookie fifth-round pick Blake Cashman will serve as a strong backup and a special teams asset. Backups: Isaiah Crowell, Eli McGuire, Trenton Cannon. The good news: Beachum has the potential to be a lot better, and Shell should be danger of losing his job to rookie Chuma Edoga, a player the Jets traded up to draft in the third round. He worked with the Cowboys' strong line for three years before he got saddled with the Bengals' lesser talent last season. McLendon, the oldest defender on the team at 33, has not shown signs of slowing down. Draft blunder: Adam Gase tries to explain why Jets cut third-round pick Jachai Polite, Getting healthy: The Jets should have several key pieces back for season-opener, Le'Veon Bell: Barry Sanders explains why Bell will return to being an elite running back.

The Jets also are now better positioned to finish drives after ranking 30th in red zone TD rate (44.4 percent) last season. If he can improve his ball security, he could double as the return man. That probably means they won't have to draft an edge rusher like Josh Allen or Clelin Ferrell at No. All signs point to Chris Herndon having a big second season as the next top receiver at the position.

Jets depth chart: Latest ever-changing picture after Day 1 of free agency By Murat Ates Oct 9, 2020 36 Kevin Cheveldayoff added Paul Stastny, fixing Winnipeg’s centre depth. Burnett flashed late in 2018 as an undrafted rookie. Tomlinson is a solid blocking tight end. Analysis: The top three receivers are all capable playmakers who have skillsets that should complement each other well. Samuel, who starred at South Carolina, could make for a nice middle-rounds pick. Had a pretty nice run. He and Gase will mesh blocking concepts well with Bell in mind. So as the Jets prepare to begin their season Sunday at MetLife Stadium against the Bills, here’s a closer look at the strengths and weaknesses on the depth chart… Right guard Brian Winters remains solid and is joined by new starting left guard Kelechi Osemele, who is ready to rebound after some injury issues during his final season in Oakland.
