The Jets have made a lot of changes on the defensive side of the football. They have also made significant upgrades at the safety position, with the signings of Yeremiah Bell, and Laron Landry, to go along with the drafting of Josh Bush and Antonio Allen.

The question is still out there, have the Jets improved the pass defense, especially over the middle? The elephant in the room is still Eric Smith. We don’t need to discuss him, we have at length. The rookies will help, but at this point they are still unknowns. To me, Bell will help more than most thing, as I have outlined here.

The fact though, is that Bell doesn’t have a great reputation against the pass.  Couple that with the growing concern that Laron Landry’s injury might be lingering longer than we thought, the pass defense could still be a problem over the middle.

The solution?  Oshiomogho Atogwe.
