Only 3 groups have actually utilized more players than the Jets in 2020
The Jets lineup has actually included a great deal of moving pieces this season.
New york city has used 76 different gamers this year, the fourth-most in the NFL, per the New York Post’s Brian Costello. Just the Eagles (77 ), 49ers (78) and Jaguars (79) have actually utilized more gamers than the Jets.
The Jets have actually been plagued by injuries all season long. New york city has 12 gamers on injured reserve today and has had 30 on IR this season, sixth-most in the league. Another factor the Jets have actually utilized so lots of various players is that they’ve had an unstable and uncompetitive roster. Gamers such as Le’Veon Bell, Pierre Desir, Avery Williamson and Steve McLendon have either been launched or traded, clearing the way for more youthful gamers in an assessment year.
For example, the Jets have been playing a great deal of novices in their secondary over the previous few weeks. At one point, the Jets started two rookie cornerbacks in Bryce Hall and Lamar Jackson, as well as rookie security Ashtyn Davis.
Now 0-13, there’s littl the Jets can do but give snaps to as many young players as possible and see if they can make an impact next season. The Jets are going to look really various in 2021, as they only have actually 35 players signed to the active roster for next year. It might be less than that too if the Jets make some salary-based roster cuts.
Either way, expect a lot of youth on the team.
