As week one of the 2012 NFL season approaches, rosters are taking shape as teams gear up for the regular season.
Here is a comprehensive look at the Jets roster as they gear up for week one versus the Buffalo Bills on September 9th.
QB 1 - Mark Sanchez QB 2 - Tim Tebow QB 3 - Greg McElroy
RB 1 - Shonn Greene RB 2 - Bilal Powell RB 3 - Joe McKnight RB 4 - Terrance Ganaway (R)
WR 1 - Santonio Holmes WR 2 - Stephen Hill (R) WR 3 - Jeremy Kerley WR 4 - Patrick Turner/Chaz Schilens
TE 1 - Dustin Keller TE 2 - Jeff Cumberland TE 3 - Dedrick Epps
Left Tackle - D'Brickashaw Ferguson Left Guard - Matt Slauson
Center - Nick Mangold
Right Tackle - Austin Howard Right Guard - Brandon Moore
Tight end Dustin Keller, out with a strained hamstring, opened the door for a possible move to bring in another tight end off the free agent market. Possible options include former Giant, Jeremy Shockey, and recently released, Chris Cooley.
The wide receiver position has also been decimated by injuries, but as of now the Jets seem determined to go with the players currently in camp. Look for rookie Jordan White to get some time if the Jets receivers aren't performing, as Rex Ryan has made it clear that he likes White's speed and ability to get open.
DEFENSE (3-4 Base)
Left Defensive End - Mo Wilkerson/Quinton Coples
Nose Tackle - Sione Pouha/Kenrick Ellis
Right Defensive End - Mike Devito/Marcus Dixon
Left Outside Linebacker - Bryan Thomas/Garrett McIntyre
Left Inside Linebacker - Bart Scott/Demario Davis
Right Inside Linebacker - David Harris/Josh Mauga
Right Outside Linebacker - Calvin Pace/Aaron Maybin
Strong Safety - Yeremiah Bell/Josh Bush/Antonio Allen
Free Safety - LaRon Landry/Eric Smith
Cornerbacks - Darelle Revis/Antonio Cromartie Nickel/Dime Cornerbacks - Kyle Wilson/Isaiah Trufant
By signing safeties LaRon Landry and Yeremiah Bell, the Jets' secondary has, without question, become the strongest in the NFL. Their additions should help the Jets' defense cover opposing tight ends, which was a weak spot in 2011.
Kick Returner - Joe McKnight
Punt Returner - Jeremy Kerley/Jordan White
Kicker - Nick Folk
Punter - T.J. Conley
