Following an offseason that has received near-universal praise, the NY Jets appear to have assembled the organization's best and most complete roster in over half a decade.
Not only does the roster have few glaring weaknesses on paper, but there is also an abundance of depth at a number of key positions. Depth breeds competition, and the Jets figure to have plenty of both come this summer.
Positions such as defensive end, cornerback, and even wide receiver will feature their fair share of position battles. As such, some incumbent starters could be in danger of losing their starting jobs.
Which players have the most to worry about? We take a look at four current Jets starters who could lose their starting roles this summer.
4. Bryce Hall, CB, NY Jets
This one feels pretty much inevitable, but at the time of writing, Bryce Hall is currently penciled in as one of the Jets' two starting cornerbacks opposite free-agent signing D.J. Reed.
Hall has been a revelation for the Jets since entering the league as a fifth-round pick in 2020. He's coming off an excellent sophomore NFL season, but it's only a matter of time until he forfeits his starting job.
2022 fourth overall pick Sauce Gardner may be running with the backups in OTAs, but that's merely a formality. As long as he doesn't underperform in training camp, the starting job should be his to lose.
This isn't a slight on Hall who played very well last season and would be a starter on close to the majority of NFL rosters. The Jets drafted Gardner for a reason, however, and it's not to sit on the bench.
