By my count, we have 27 guaranteed spots. Here are the next set of guys I think are likely to get spots:
QB: G.J. Kinne
RB: Bilal Powell
WR: Chaz Schilens
TE: Jeff Cumberland, Hayden Smith
OL: Vlad Ducasse, Wayne Hunter, Caleb Schlauderaff, Austin Howard
DL: Mike DeVito, Ropati Pitoitua, Marcus Dixon
LB: Bryan Thomas, Nick Bellore
DB: Jim Leonhard, Ellis Lankster, Isaiah Trufant, Josh Bush
Special teams: Nick Folk, T.J. Conley
Add those 20 to the initial 27 and you get 47. Who will get the last six spots?
—Terrance Ganaway: He just screams Rex Ryan favorite and the Jets could use a goal-line back.
—Jay Richardson: Rex is gonna favor defensive guys with his last few spots and you need defensive line depth to give guys rest.
—Josh Mauga: A Rex Ryan favorite who has always contributed on special teams.
—Robert Griffin: I guess the Jets are carrying nine linemen.
—Patrick Turner: He just won't go away, at the very least he knows Sanchez well.
—Garrett McIntyre: He'll provide special teams depth.
Keep in mind this list is just composed of players currently under contract (and Leonhard, who I think is a lock). I expect at least one, possibly two or three veteran signings between now and training camp.
I think Chris Johnson is a good bet to sign here, and if Yeremiah Bell will take the minimum he'd be a nice addition as well. If they signed, expect them to take the spots Trufant and McIntyre.
