Jets Initial 53-Man Roster
Today is going to be a fun day. I’m not sure if the Jets will make any waiver claims considering they’re working from a position of having one of the better rosters in football. Today is a day for teams like the Cardinals, teams building for the future.
I am looking forward to seeing who makes it through to the practice squad. I’m hoping Trey Dean, Greg Senat and Pita Taumoepenu do, but I’m not holding my breath with any of them.
