A review of the Jets' depth chart

7/19/2011

With the NFL labor dispute reportedly in its final stages, the lockout could be lifted as soon as Friday -- and you know what that means. It'll be madness, with free-agent signings, rookie signings, trades, etc.

As a refresher, here's an updated depth chart (our version), based on the roster posted on NewYorkJets.com. Unrestricted free agents are in caps, rookies in italics.

Some quick observations: Obviously, the big story is wide receiver, where the Jets have three key free agents. Potentially, they also face significant turnover in the secondary. They're thin on the offensive line and linebacker, areas that could be targeted with undrafted free agents.

So here you go, a complete depth chart. Chances are, it's going to look a lot different in about 10 days.
