    We've got something like 8 picks in the first four rounds alone, and may have as many as 12-13 drafted rookies before it's all over. Assuming that 10 guys will make the team (the rest go Practice Squad or cut outright), who on the roster right now is on the bubble (aside from the real deep guys like RB Terry Butler or TE Corey Lamkin)?

    is Ridgeway still on the roster? maybe him if we get another WR.

    Kenyatta Wright may be another one.

    perhaps Dearth if Mangini thinks someone else can be the long-snapper.

    James Reed? Goodwin? Trevor Johnson? I'm not even sure if all these guys are still on the roster because I haven't been following that area as closely. but they could be on the bubble.



    cheers

    I like James Reed. He's a good fill in player to give the DL guys breaks if they need it.

    Dreessen could be the long snapper instead of Dearth.

    You're thinking of Darrell McGlover, #57.

    Also, I think the Jets have seven picks in the first four rounds. I'm a little dissapointed they were only awarded one comp pick......

    hey, it's the highest comp pick given out...so am not upset or disappointed at all. I would hate to see reed go as well but looks like he may be the odd man out since he isn't the biggest guy now. Not that he was before we signed these other 2 tackles.

    I have heard before that it costs more to release Blaylock then to keep him on the team...

    Why not just keep him along with Cedric and Martin for one more year before addressing the RB position?

    Blayock got injured he is a very good back he also is costin us less than a mil this year so its not worth to cut him. Bollinger is prob the best 3rd string qb in the league and is comn at a cheap price as well unless we draft a qb in the first day which is slim to none i dont see him being cut

    You want to cut Jolley so we have another hole to fill? Brilliant!

    Bollinger now has very valuable game experience; more than you'll find from most 3rd string QBs in the league, besides some really old Vet.

    I think that people are too quick to dismiss Dearth, the guy has been perfect and that is what you ask of you LS. I know that Dressen can also play some TE, but he would be second string maybe even 3rd string, not really a position of importance. I would much rather hae dressen cut cause dearth has been reliable his whole career, I cant remember one snap where he cost us yards/points. What else can you ask for with a LS?

    how can you cut a guy who has been perfect for your team, for years, because you have a guy who might be able to fill the shoes?

    As for the cuts I see Wright being out of here, I think that Mcclover will get his papers, T Johnson, I hope Goodwin, perhaps Rashad Washington.

    Depending on what happens in the draft Blaylock might be out of here too.

    I think this is what SHOULD happen. I like Dearth as a dependable long-snapper, but we could do a lot with an extra roster spot if Dreessen is capable of learning on the job for a year. This is the time to replace the players that are difficult to replace. Plus, it would be nice if Graham could have a new young LS to work with during his learning stages (and yes, amazingly, Ben Graham is still learning his job).

    At the same time, I won't be crushed if the CS doesn't think JD's ready yet and want to keep Dearth on for another year.

    Why not cut Dearth instead? Like someone else said, Dressen can handle the long snap duties. Why keep a guy who's JUST a long snapper?

    Only problem I have with this is that learning on the Job is fine for any other position. With LS it is not. Dearth has been to the playoffs and has snapped in very high pressure situations for us and he has ALWAYS been reliable, I dont want Dressen as our LS KEEP DEARTH!!!!

    Ask the Giant fans about that one.

    IF Dreessen can LS, then, yes, Dearth could be on the chopping block. Graham has shown he's got good hands, and although Dearth may well be the best LS in the league, he could be gone.

    Having said all of that, it's reading tea leaves at this point to guess at who might get cut. Even after the draft, it would remain so. The mostly new CS has to look at all these players, many of whom they've never gotten a good look at.

    On the other hand, anyone who says we should cut Blaylock is on my ignore list. A more ignorant Jets fan is hard to even imagine.

    Well I cant say that you have hurt my feelings because being on somones forum ignore list is not something that will make me lose sleep.

    But look at the situation as I proposed it. If we draft an RB with one of our first three or four picks he is guarenteed to make the squad, I think we can agree on that. Martin is not getting cut, and I think the general consensus with Houston is that he can be a player. With 11 picks in the draft I dont see the Jets carrying four RB's and I dont really see them taking Blaylock coming off of an injury over Houston at this point.
