The 2021 JetsFix 53-man Roster Relay: Second Leg

As we did last year, we're going to mark preseason with a series of fan-sourced roster projections. The idea is that as players make their case in each preseason game this will be reflected in the next leg of the relay, along with other developments such as injuries.

Our second leg comes to you live from Connecticut as our longtime friend and paranormal investigator R in CT takes his shot ahead of the first game ...

Sure, I can take a crack at this … what could possibly go wrong?

QB (3)
Zach Wilson
Josh Johnson
Mike White

Avast, Capt. Morgan! Ye be sunk to Davy Jones’ Practice Squad. Aaargh!

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - Morgan out, White and Johnson in)

RB (4)
Tevin Coleman
Michael Carter
La’Mical Perine
Ty Johnson

None of these guys will sit while we watch the Jets run Frank Gore into stacked boxes on first and second down just to get Granderson’s bat going.

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - None)

WR (6)
Corey Davis
Keelan Cole
Elijah Moore
Denzel Mims
Jamison Crowder
Braxton Berrios

Alert: The Jets may actually be fielding an NFL-level receiving corps, which we haven’t seen since the days of Brandon Marshall/Eric Decker. Despite being a fan favorite, Honey Nut Berrios may find himself swapped for one of the Smiths or someone with more upside/speed.

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - None)

TE/FB (4)
Chris Herndon
Tyler Kroft
Ryan Griffin
Trevon Wesco

Not sure if it’s truly possible to drive a stake through the immortal, inhuman heart of Daniel Brown, but giving it a shot here.

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - Yeboah out, Griffin in)

OL (8)
Mekhi Becton, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Connor McGovern, Greg Van Roten, George Fant, Morgan Moses, Dan Feeney, David Moore

Expecting Alex Lewis and Cameron Clark to start the season on Exempt/IR. Not sure what to do with Chuma Edoga as he seems … meh? I have a jar of Hellmann’s mayonnaise I’m more excited to see on any given day.

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - Edoga and Clark/Hoge out, Moore in)

Edge (5)
Vinny Curry
Carl Lawson
Ronald Blair
John Franklin-Myers
Bryce Huff

Really stoked to see this group wreak some havoc. Lawson has been playing so well he could almost count as two guys.

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - None)

IDL (4)
Quinnen Williams
Foley Fatukasi
Sheldon Rankins
Nathan Shepherd

I almost added Tanzel Smart here, but is that actually smart? Smarter to stash Marshall on the practice squad, I think. Wait, what?

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - Marshall out, Shepherd in)

LB (5)
CJ Mosley
Jarrad Davis
Hamsah Nasirildeen
Jamien Sherwood
Blake Cashman

Cashman is on here only if he somehow survives training camp and preseason in one piece. JK—I do like him, t-rex arms and all. Although I’m pretty sure Eifler is French for “he who stays close to the phone.”

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - None)

CB (6)
Bless Austin
Bryce Hall
Javelin Guidry
Jason Pinnock
Michael Carter II
Brandin Echols

What’s the old saying? “If you have six CBs, you have none?” FYI: I have Hardee listed with the special teams.

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - Dunn out)

S (4)
Marcus Maye
Lamarcus Joyner
Sharrod Neasman
J.T. Hassell

Yeah, I’m not sure if Neasman and Hassell actually exist, so I almost went with Zane Lewis. But then I checked and I wasn’t sure if he existed either, so this is what I got.

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - Hassell in)

Specials (4)
LS - Thomas Hennessy
K - Matt Ammendola
P - Braden Mann
Gunner - Justin Hardee

Special teams nerd alert: If Hardee does for this unit what I think he’ll do, I’ll be wearing his jersey by Thanksgiving.

(Editor's Note: Changes since the last leg - Naggar out, Ammendola in)

Practice Squad
Capt. Morgan
Camilo Eifler
Elijah Campbell
Isaiah Dunn
Zane Lewis
Jonathan Marshall
Brandin Echols
Kenny Yeboah
Jabari Zuniga (once he signs)

(Editor's Note: Echols removed because he's already on the roster and the Jets may have two Michael Carters but they only have one Brandin Echols)

Starting season on PUP
Ashtyn Davis, Kyle Phillips

(Editor's Note: The previous leg had Davis being put onto three-week IR instead of the PUP list)
