The New York Jets have some tough decisions that await when it comes to their wide receiver corps. Could they keep six of their top wideouts for the upcoming season?
For the first time in a very long time, the New York Jets have a plethora of solid talent when it comes to their wide receiver corps. Looking at the depth chart, they’re stacked at the positional group which bodes well for some major offensive action in 2016. The only problem is, roster cuts are looming as it’s hard to keep everyone, even if they shined throughout the preseason.
The Jets are stacked with talent at wide receiver from top to bottom. Right off the bat, it’s easy to pencil in Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Quincy Enunwa as their top three. Despite Enunwa dealing with a concussion injury, he should be back and ready to soar by the time the regular season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals arrives.
There is a strong possibility that the Jets could keep six wide receivers heading into the upcoming season. Should the Jets go that route, it bodes well for wide receivers Jalin Marshall, Robby Anderson, and Charone Peake. If the Jets opt to go with just the traditional route, there will be an odd man out, most likely based on how well they’ve done on special teams.
On the flipside, though, depth is incredibly important on any team, as due to the past injuries to everyone at wide receiver up top, it’s in the best interest of the Jets to keep six just in case. The season ahead is a long one and well, always unpredictable when it comes to injuries or decline in play.

At the end of it all, the Jets will start roster cuts as soon as today and into the holiday weekend.
With the preseason over, the focus shifts to fielding a roster of solid veterans, young players with something to prove, and natural born play-makers.
The Jets have all that and then some at wide receiver but as always, not everyone gets that storybook ending of making final roster cuts on an NFL team.
Either way, it’s important to understand that the Jets are in good hands when it comes to those that make these tough decisions.
On if the staff has tough decisions to make at wide receiver…
Yes, we do. We have tough decisions to make at a few spots. It’ll be interesting to see who plays well.
On if he sees a scenario where he could keep Jalin Marshall, Robby Anderson and Charone Peake…
I mean it’s possible. They’ve all had their flashes in games. It’s possible.
Overall, it will be very interesting to see what decisions the Jets make at wide receiver. One thing is for sure, it’s great to have tough decisions to make thanks to having such great talent in a positional group that set records just a year ago who could exceed expectations once again.
