The NY Jets have underdone quite a bit of roster overhaul this offseason, as was always going to be the case after an abysmal 2-14 campaign a year ago.

The coaching staff received a complete makeover with Robert Saleh and Mike LaFleur taking over for Adam Gase and Dowell Loggains.

The offense is set to look very different on the field as well with Zach Wilson replacing Sam Darnold and players like Corey Davis, Alijah Vera-Tucker, and Elijah Moore being added to the fray.

The same is true for the defense with offseason additions Carl Lawson, Sheldon Rankins, and Jarrad Davis — among others — set to see the field plenty in 2021.

But in the numbers-driven world of the NFL, you can't make additions without subtractions.

The influx of new talent might be good news for a struggling Jets roster, but it's bad news for the incumbent players on the team.

Certain players who either started or received significant playing time a year ago find themselves clinging on to their roster spots.

Not only have they been squeezed out of a potential role on offense/defense, but they might not even make the 53-man roster.

We take a look at four players on offense who fit this criteria.
