    That’s why I apologized.

    There are no comments of you saying TE isn’t a need and we won’t be using more TE sets.

    Take the apology and move on. I’m showing you I can accept when I’m wrong.

    There are no comments of you saying TE isn’t a need and we won’t be using more TE sets.

    The obvious reason of me posting multiple quotes of you literally saying TE isn’t a need, philosophically we don’t favor 12 personnel, and we won’t be using more 12 sets this upcoming season?

    Nah, we all know what you really meant ;)

    Being able to call people out for saying things without having them try and rewrite history and make excuses sounds like a small slice of heaven.

    Posting CIMINI 53-man roster projection 6/21/22 from ESPN+

    QUARTERBACK (3): Zach Wilson, Joe Flacco, Mike White

    New year, different philosophy. Criticized last season for carrying two untested quarterbacks on the opening day roster -- Wilson and White -- the Jets now have a seasoned backup in Flacco, whom they re-signed after a midseason trade. It might be a luxury to carry three, but White, who achieved folk-hero status with an epic performance against the Cincinnati Bengals, is viewed by the organization as a starting-caliber player.


    RUNNING BACK (4): Michael Carter, Breece Hall, Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson

    Carter and Hall, a 2022 second-round pick, are the only true roster locks; they represent the present and future of the position. Coleman, Johnson, La'Mical Perine and undrafted rookie Zonovan Knight will battle for the third and fourth spots. Perine, a holdover from the previous coaching staff, is down to this last chance.

    FULLBACK (1): Nick Bawden

    Bawden and Trevon Wesco both played well in the spring, but the edge goes to the ultraphysical Bawden.


    WIDE RECEIVER (6): Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, Garrett Wilson, Braxton Berrios, Jeff Smith, Denzel Mims

    Does Mims get another chance, or does he become the latest in a long line of Jets second-round failures? He slips through for now, but he shouldn't get comfortable because this could go either way. Typically, they have six receivers, dressing five for games. Special teams, where Smith has an advantage over Mims, is a consideration for the WR5 job. Moore and Garrett Wilson, a first-round pick, have star potential.

    TIGHT END (3): C.J. Uzomah, Tyler Conklin, Jeremy Ruckert

    This is one of the most improved areas on the team. They spent a combined $25 million in guarantees on Uzomah and Conklin, then used a third-round pick on Ruckert. That means the top three jobs are locked up unless there's an injury.

    OFFENSIVE LINE (9): George Fant, Laken Tomlinson, Connor McGovern, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Mekhi Becton, Conor McDermott, Dan Feeney, Nate Herbig, Max Mitchell

    The ideal number is eight, but Mitchell complicates matters because he's a fourth-round pick who will be given at least a year to develop. Former third-round pick Chuma Edoga looks like the odd man out. The Becton-Fant decision -- which one gets moved to right tackle? -- will be one of the top stories in camp.

    DEFENSIVE LINE (9): Quinnen Williams, John Franklin-Myers, Carl Lawson, Jermaine Johnson II, Sheldon Rankins, Jacob Martin, Solomon Thomas, Nathan Shepherd, Michael Clemons

    It's a rotation-heavy line that loaded up in free agency and the draft, setting up a numbers game that will result in two or three legitimate players getting cut -- i.e., Vinny Curry and Bryce Huff. Lawson, returning from surgery on his left Achilles tendon, could start camp on the physically unable to perform list (PUP) but should be ready for Week 1. Clemons will have a hard time seeing the field, but he's not going anywhere as a fourth-round pick.

    LINEBACKER (5): C.J. Mosley, Quincy Williams, Hamsah Nasirildeen, Jamien Sherwood, Marcell Harris

    This is the weakest area on the team. Mosley and Williams are fine, but it's dicey beyond them. For now, Nasirildeen, a college safety who played only 28 snaps last season as a linebacker, is the third starter. Sherwood, recovering from a torn Achilles tendon, could start camp on PUP. They're searching for better depth.

    CORNERBACK (7): D.J. Reed, Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner, Michael Carter II, Brandin Echols, Breece Hall, Javelin Guidry, Justin Hardee

    Last year's starters -- Echols and Hall -- project as this year's backups, which should tell you something about the overall improvement of the position. Look for the Gardner-Reed tandem to open on the outside. Gardner, a first-round pick, needs seasoning, but he's too talented to keep on the bench. Carter is favored in the slot. Isaiah Dunn, on the bubble, impressed coaches in the spring and could challenge Hardee, who earns his keep on special teams.

    SAFETY (3): Jordan Whitehead, Lamarcus Joyner, Ashtyn Davis

    Whitehead, Joyner and Davis appear set. The question is whether they keep Jason Pinnock, who was excellent in the spring. Pinnock, a converted cornerback, still is learning the position. Joyner, 31, sticks because of his experience and man-to-man coverage skills, although he hasn't intercepted a pass in four years.

    SPECIALISTS (3): Greg Zuerlein (kicker), Braden Mann (punter), Thomas Hennessy (long-snapper)

    Zuerlein and incumbent Eddy Pineiro kicked well in the spring and will take their "neck and neck" competition into training camp, according to special teams coordinator Brant Boyer. Where have we heard that before? Every year, regardless of the kickers, it turns into a mess.

    I think it is a pretty good guess for the 53. I would take issue with Pinnock being cut and going with 9 DL rather than 10. I think one less RB is part of the answer but where they get the additional roster spot from I do not know. Likely from a training camp injury. Cuts will be hard.

    Linebacker and safety is just brutal

    Corner is weak, unless Sauce is Revis and doesn't have a learning curve., also Cimini has Breece Hall as a 2-way player

    On offense of course you have to be concerned about offensive line and QB. I think the 53-man roster will look very different than this as Douglas always goes shopping the waiver wire

    Per Cimini's prediction...
    - 7 CBs is a lot. Not sure if Hardee or Guidry end up cut or Hall gets dealt, but that's too many. I think Pinnock will make it at S instead
    - Oof, unless one of the LBs steps up I hope they sign a vet.
    - Would be surprised if Bryce Huff gets cut. I could see them going with 10 DL
    - Unless Becton and Fant look really good in TC, I think they'll swap a vet like Reiff for McDermott

    Corner is the best position on the team, on what planet is it weak?

    I mean... they kind of do suck...

    IMO DJ Reed is being underrated by some and will be terrific. He was a high-end starter in Seattle last year. Sauce is a rookie so who knows how he'll be, but he's a top 5 pick with great college production and NFL projection who's been getting rave reviews in camp. That should be a great duo. Also, Hall was solid last year and now he's depth. Carter and Echols flashed as rookies too

    DJ Reed is average? Tell me you don’t follow the sport. Hall, Echols and Carter all showed positive things last year. And Sauce isn’t an ordinary rookie, he’ll be expected to be good from the jump.They’re deep and talented.

    Deep and talented is the hope.

    It’s said that last year, the LBs played soft to help compensate for the inexperience of the DBs.

    If the secondary is as good as we hope, I think it’s a safe assumption to think the LBs will be able to focus more on the run game and help provide a solid front.

    they showed some good things, I agree. Sauce is going to struggle rookie year, they all do, but he’s talented. DJ Reed has always been average

    You’ve never watched DJ Reed play football.

    How about Bryce Hall... please don't say you think that they will trade him, this is the first year we have depth at the position
