The New York Jets have made a lot of moves this offseason as it all will lead to a major culture change for hopefully, a better future.

This offseason has been an exciting and perhaps excruciating one for the New York Jets.  Many long-term veterans and fan favorites will not be suiting up this season.  The youth movement is in full effect and fans are wondering if more dramatic cuts or trades will be made before the final 53 man roster is set in stone.

Other players whom also may be on the chopping block could be Matt Forte or Steve McLendon.  The Jets are becoming one of the youngest rosters in the NFL.

Can an abundance of youth create a new culture?

I think it can!  Just look at this year’s draft.  Many of the selections were from big name schools and all of the players bring a variety of characteristics.  Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye look to be the new leaders as defensive back signal callers.  They have been vocal and hope to bring back strong communication in coverage schemes.  This was a major disappointment last season.

Ardarius Stewart has an intense play style and skill set that can really help this offense move the chains.  Jordan Leggett is coming off a terrific college year and showed he can be a reliable option at the National Championship game.

Leggett might be the answer at tight end that we all have been waiting for.  Dylan Donahue is another high energy player who should flash on special teams and strive for snaps on passing downs.

The Jets have broken down this roster position by position with the hope that youth and talent will be the answer.

The challenge falls to the coaching staff who must “coach up” this inexperienced group, so they can gel into a formidable unit.  The Jets might not win many games this coming year, but the overall strategy could lead to optimism and hope for the future of the franchise.

I believe the Jets are trying to build a new culture by nurturing talented young players who will compete for roster spots and show improvement throughout the season.  This major culture change is exactly what this organization has needed for a long time now.
