The NY Jets have been forced to do quite a bit of roster maneuvering over the last few days. The team has been hit hard by the injury bug resulting in a number of roster moves this week.

The likes of Mekhi Becton, Braden Mann, Blake Cashman, and Lamarcus Joyner were placed on the injured reserve. Rookie linebacker Jamien Sherwood will also miss at least a week with an injury.

Meanwhile, the Jets signed veteran linebacker B.J. Goodson and former Pro Bowl punter Thomas Morstead from free agency while promoting offensive tackle Isaiah Williams and safety Jarrod Wilson from the practice squad.

At the moment, the Jets are extremely thin at linebacker, safety, and along the offensive line as a direct result of injuries.

The team might have Del'Shawn Phillips starting at linebacker. Wilson, Sheldrick Redwine, and Adrian Colbert will be competing for a starting spot at safety. And right now, Chuma Edoga and Dan Feeney are the Jets' top two backup offensive linemen.

Now, the Jets have already made their roster moves for this week. Once Jamison Crowder is activated from the COVD-19 list, the Jets will be at 53 players on their active roster.

But that doesn't mean they can't still look to make an addition, either this week or in the very near future. And instead, of turning to free agency or their own practice squad, what if they looked around the league for a solution?

We take a look at eight players on other teams' practice squads the Jets could look to poach.
