The Jets have been around since 1959 when the team was founded, in those 50+ years we’ve seen some fantastic defensive players grace the gridiron. Always when modern writers do these kind of all-time lists they often are too modern-heavy with their picks or perhaps too old-school heavy with reliance on the past.
The key to doing a list of this magnitude is to balance the respect of the past with the realization of greatness of the present. That has all led to the culmination of this all-time list to settle the debate once and for all, who in fact are the 30 greatest defenders of the Jets to ever don the historic green and white uniforms, at least in my opinion.
Without further adieu, enjoy!
