Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comOn this list there are only two players who were drafted in 2014 that were cut by the Jets. CB Brandon Dixon who had a tough time adjusting under the lights of the preseason and Tajh Boyd needs more refinement before he could be a player that the Jets could justify adding to their 53 man roster.
Of the group, there’s a number of good candidates for the practice squad: Tajh Boyd, Troy Davis, Brandon Dixon, Tevita Finau, Rontez Miles, Chris Pantale, Johnny Patrick (not sure of eligibility) Jeremy Reeves, Darryl Richardson and Matt Simms. Of that group, I would not be surprised if about six or seven of that group could see time on the active roster for the Jets this season.
There’s only a few players that I don’t imagine would come back to the Jets at any point. Dimitri Patterson and Stephen Hill would be on that list. Will Campbell and Garrett McIntyre might have been as useful to the Jets as he could have been, but with a bunch of young linebackers and receivers who were just drafted, I don’t know that the team will have use for them in the future.
