Potential moves for the Jets?

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

The Jets will likely make some more roster moves in the coming days, so here’s two positions that we think could be in focus for some movement.  We’ve also given some suggestions from our scouring the all the names of the cuts that took place on Saturday.

Wide Receiver Analysis: Keeping five might be a sign that the Jets feel confident with less because Santonio is soon to come back into game-form.  Even so, the Jets might be tempted to put in a waiver claim on a player like Tavarres King who was cut by the Broncos today (who have a stacked receiving corps) after being drafted as a fourth rounder this past spring.  King has 4.47 speed and 33″ arms standing 6’0′ 189 lbs.  While few national writers seem to like this group, it could be that the Jets go the opposite way and consider picking up a player like Courtney Roby (NO) who has worked in his first three seasons as a kick returner and gunner.

Offensive Line Analysis: The Jets have kept all three of their draftees on the roster for now, but while their starting group will be good, their depth is concerning should injuries occur.  The Jets could go after a player that might be familiar with Mornhinweg’s system like backup G/C Dallas Reynolds, or if the Jets could convince veterans like T Max Starks or T Tony Pashos or C Ryan Lilja to be a backup.
