The New York Jets have been doing a deep clean of their roster. And they are currently taking a ton of criticism for sending several key players packing.
Fortunately, former Jets receiver Brandon Marshall was released quite early in the proceedings. He quickly signed a two-year deal with the New York Giants, happy to play for a contending team.
Free to speak his mind about his old team, Marshall questioned the Jets’ current state of affairs.
“I think eventually, they’ll be alright,” said Marshall per TMZ Sports. “But I don’t know if they’re gonna have enough men to line up!”
Marshall makes a valid point here. The Jets are disposing of players left and right just like one might go through a messy garage and get rid of clutter.
We have to hope that whoever is quarterbacking for the Jets even has guys to throw to this fall. It’s almost certain that veteran Josh McCown will be under center. But we could easily see Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg slinging the pigskin around as well if he gets injured.
The Jets opted not to select any of the top quarterback prospects in this year’s draft. They also declined to add any veteran quarterback talent other than an aging McCown during free agency.
From top to bottom, there is little doubt the Jets have a terrible overall roster.
From an NFL exec- "I think the Jets might have the worst roster I've seen in a decade."

Sadly, the upcoming season already has “depressing” written all over it for the Jets and their fans. Even more troubling, it’s only June. So more Jets veterans might be shown the door in the upcoming weeks.
