The Jets secondary is probably one of the strengths of their team with Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie on the outside and the emergence of young corner Kyle Wilson.
Yet the Jets continue to get burned by opposing tight ends. Unfortunately for the Jets, this is a time that their biggest rival has one of the best tight ends in the league in Rob Gronkowski. Not to mention, he has a pretty good teammate, Aaron Hernandez, to play tight end opposite him.
If the Jets want to have any serious chance in competing for the AFC East title in the foreseeable future, they are going to have to attempt to tame the Patriots aerial attack. In their 37-16 loss to the Patriots in Week 10, Rob Gronkowski burned the Jets for 113 yards and two touchdowns.
With consecutive season-ending injuries to Jim Leonhard, there are also questions as to whether he will return to the Jets next year. Leonhard has been the anchor that has held this defense together the past two years, but the team has missed him in crunch time.
Whether or not Jim Leonhard is included in the Jets secondary next year, they will absolutely have to revamp their unit if they want to compete in the AFC.
