The Jets have 10 players that weren't part of this year's rookie haul who have yet to play in an NFL game. These are the guys who typically make up the numbers on the 90 (or in this case 91) man roster.
Do any of these apparent longshots have a chance of getting into an NFL game ever - let alone this year with the Jets?
Let's assess them, in no particular order...
- Luke Falk, Quarterback
Falk was earning some top 10 buzz a few years ago, but had a horrible senior year and ended up going to the Titans in the sixth round. He didn't last long there, ending up in Miami with Adam Gase and then following him to the Jets.
Key stat: Falk completed 32 of 58 passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and one interception in four preseason games
- Jon Toth, Center
Toth is currently the number two center, so is basically a Jonotthan Harrison injury away from being a starter...in theory. Toth got back surgery in 2017 so didn't initially sign with anyone after going undrafted but then ended up on the Eagles practice squad which is where he was last year too.
Key stat: In three preseason games, Toth played 97 snaps and gave up one sack, one pressure and no penalties.
- Mark Myers, Cornerback
Myers also didn't get signed immediately after going undrafted following an unusual college career at Southeastern University. However, he won a contract at Bucs rookie camp and played for them in preseason.
Key stat: In four preseason games, Myers played 93 defensive snaps and recorded five tackles. He also missed three tackles and had a penalty.
- Davis Webb, Quarterback
Webb was a third-round pick in 2017 for the Giants but they surprisingly released him in final cuts before his second season and he spent most of the year on the Jets' practice squad instead.
Key stat: In preseason action, Webb has appeared in six games and completed 46 of 87 passes for 473 yards and a touchdown.
- Tevaughn Campbell, Cornerback
While Campbell is not a part of this year's rookie haul, he is a rookie, for NFL purposes at least. However, Campbell - who signed a futures deal in January - has four years of experience playing in Canada.
Key stat: In the CFL, Campbell played for three different teams in 42 games and racked up 62 tackles, four interceptions and two forced fumbles. He also scored three touchdowns.
- Jordan Morgan, Offensive Lineman
Morgan, who has been working with the second unit during the offseason, was a fifth round pick in 2017 and has spent time on Chicago's injured reserve and Tennessee's practice squad. He was another futures signing for the Jets.
Key stat: Morgan has seen action in six preseason games and played 145 snaps. He didn't give up a sack, but did surrender four pressures and was penalized twice.
- Valentine Holmes, Running Back
Holmes, like Campbell, is officially a rookie. However, he's been a professional rugby player for the past few years. Obviously this is his first experience of pro football and, as an International Player Pathway Player, he is guaranteed at least a practice squad spot for the whole year.
Key stat: Holmes has represented Australia 13 times, scoring 17 tries (which is their version of a touchdown).
- Brandon Bryant, Safety
Bryant wasn't your run-of-the-mill undrafted free agent either. The youngster was available in last year's supplemental draft but the Jets signed him once nobody opted to use a pick on him. He spent all year on the practice squad before being added to the active roster at the end of the year. However, he didn't get a chance to play.
Key stat: In three preseason appearances, Bryant recorded nine tackles and a pass defensed. He was also penalized once.
- Eric Smith, Offensive Lineman
Smith might be the only player from this group to have received a significant number of first-team reps so far, as he did when Kelvin Beachum was absent for a few days in the final week of OTAs. Gase's Dolphins signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2017 and he remained with them but didn't get into a game. He then started off last year on New England's practice squad before the Jets poached him.
Key stat: In eight preseason games, Smith has played 293 offensive snaps. He's given up two sacks and 14 total pressures and been penalized three times.
- Montrel Meander, Defensive Back
Finally, Meander was signed by the Browns as an undrafted free agent and spent 12 weeks on their practice squad after playing free safety for them in preseason. Gregg Williams is obviously already familiar with him, then.
Key stat: In three preseason games, Meander had three tackles, including one on special teams, and a pass defensed. He was targeted seven times for just one completion in coverage.
