The NY Jets roster is set to look vastly different from the 53-man unit the team deployed a year ago. An offseason of mass turnover has left a roster that only somewhat resembles the team that took the field in 2020.
General manager Joe Douglas laid the foundation for a new era in his first offseason with the team. The seeds were planted and the roster overhaul began to take shape.
But it wasn't until this offseason that his plan began to come to fruition.
Now, the Jets roster of 2021 is almost entirely different from the roster that Douglas inherited. It's striking just how much change has occurred over just the last two offseasons.
But given the state of the organization, it's hard to say those changes weren't necessary.
The Jets will have quite a few interesting roster battles to watch this summer. And because of that, they'll also have plenty of difficult cuts to make.
It's nearly impossible to accurately predict what the Jets roster will look like in a little over two months' time. Injuries will happen, additions could be made, and other unforeseen external variables will come into play.
But following OTAs and mandatory minicamp, we can begin to make predictions as to how the Jets roster might look come September.
We analyze just one 53-man roster projection for the Jets following spring practices.
