With the 2013 season in the books, it's time for our annual playing-time analysis, covering 16 games:

Total offensive snaps: 1,051

Tight End:

Jeff Cumberland -- 675 snaps/64 percent

Kellen Winslow -- 334 snaps/32 percent

Zach Sudfeld -- 144 snaps/14 percent

Konrad Reuland -- 34 snaps/6 percent

Analysis: This position could have an entirely different look in 2014, as Cumberland and Winslow are unrestricted free agents. ... Winslow played half as much as Cumberland, yet he finished with five more receptions, 31 to 26. A lot of that is due to the fact that Winslow played almost exclusively in passing situations. ... Reuland suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 11. ... Sudfeld was a decent early-season pick-up on waivers. He has some upside because of his receiving skills, but he doesn't project as a No. 1 tight end.

Offensive Line:

D'Brickashaw Ferguson -- 1,051 snaps/100 percent

Nick Mangold -- 1,049 snaps/99.8 percent

Austin Howard -- 1,049 snaps/99.8 percent

Willie Colon -- 1,038 snaps/99 percent

Brian Winters -- 763 snaps/73 percent

Vladimir Ducasse -- 318 snaps/30 percent

Caleb Schlauderaff -- 2 snaps/0.2 percent

Oday Aboushi, Will Campbell, Ben Ijalana -- 0 snaps

Analysis: First of all, kudos to Ferguson, the only player on offense or defense to play every single snap. In fact, he has missed only one snap in eight seasons. ... The Jets were remarkably healthy on the line, with no starts missed due to injury. The only significant injury occurred in the final game, a biceps tear for Colon. ... The only lineup change was Winters replacing Ducasse at left guard in Week 5. ... Basically, the Jets played the entire season with a 50-man roster, as Aboushi, Campbell and Ijalana were inactive for every game. That's poor roster managament, but GM John Idzik felt it was worthwhile to carry them because of their perceived upside.
