It’s been a while, but I am back with the continuation of my All Time Jets Roster, which to remind you, means anyone who played after 1985 on the Jets. To bring you up to date, you can review the past pieces as follows:

LINEBACKER:Mo Lewis-Here was a guy that was terrifc for a lot of not so terrific Jets teams, although he made his biggest mark on the team when they got good under Bill Parcells. He made 3 straight Pro Bowl appearances from 1998-2000, and recorded 52.5 sacks over his 13 years in the Green and White. He unfortunately is best remembered for a hit that ended a career in New England, but started another. For anyone who doesn’t remember, he laid a hit on Drew Bledsoe that began the career of a guy named Brady. Unfortunate, because he was a terrific member of the Jets, and a deserved place on this roster.
LINEBACKER:Lance Mehl-Lance spent 8 years in the green and white in the 1980s, and spent that time as the signal caller for the Jets defense. He was a good one, and his best year was 1985, his only Pro Bowl appearance, with 5.5 sacks, and 3 INTs. For a couple of good teams, and some really bad ones. Lance Mehl was a standout, and a deserving member of this roster.
