NY Jets general manager Joe Douglas has completely overhauled this Jets roster over the course of his four years with the organization. A roster that was once arguably the worst in football is now equipt to legitimately compete for a Super Bowl this season.

That work didn't happen overnight, either. A mix of young foundational building blocks and established complementary veterans has created one of the most talented rosters in the NFL.

The Jets may not necessarily be "all in" on the 2023 season with Aaron Rodgers under center, but it's clear that their focus is on winning now. What does that mean for the future? Well, some changes could (and likely will) come in the not-so-distant future.

The following five players may be penciled into starting roles this season, but that doesn't mean they'll even be on the roster next year.

5. Adrian Amos, S, NY Jets

The Jets signed Adrian Amos to a one-year deal last week following a season-ending injury suffered by projected starting safety Chuck Clark. With Clark sidelined, Amos is expected to fill in for his injured teammate.

The team is hoping Amos could bounce back from a difficult season in 2022. It wasn't long ago that the former Green Bay Packers safety was seen as one of the better safeties in the NFL.

Still, it's unlikely the Jets view Amos as a long-term option. Both Amos and Clark are set to be free agents at the end of the year, and the most likely outcome is that he's looking for a new home again next spring.

Is it possible that Amos plays well enough to convince the Jets to bring him back? Absolutely. But don't place any bets on him returning for another season just yet.
