New York Jets: Best & Worst Case Scenarios for 2012

Josh Zerkle@JoshZerkleChief Writer IIIJuly 18, 2012

What can we expect from the New York Jets in 2012?

The guys in green saw a curious addition to their roster when the Jets front office traded for quarterback Tim Tebow. Nobody really knows why that happened. Before that acquisition, Mark Sanchez asked for, and received, an extension on his contract. Nobody really understands how that move makes long-term sense, either. Oh, but cornerback Darrelle Revis is still voicing displeasure about his own contract. That's the only thing about this year's team that seems normal.

The rest of the Jets offense looks suspect at best. LaDainian Tomlinson will be spending 2012 of his couch, and Shonn Greene still hasn't shown that he can be the lead back in this offense. Meanwhile, the receiving corps is headed by the mercurial Santonio Holmes, coming off a weak season where he caught only 51 balls for 654 yards.

On defense, Rex Ryan's unit looks to improve with the addition of Yeremiah Bell and LaRon Landry at the safety positions. First-round pick Quinton Coples hopes to upgrade the Jets pass-rush, and third-rounder Demario Davis adds depth to the linebacking corps.

Our video series of NFL team previews continues, as national lead writer Dan Levy, senior NFL draft lead writer Matt Miller and lead NFL blogger Aaron Nagler and I discuss the Philadelphia Eagles. Enjoy our video above and leave us your thoughts on Philly in the comments.

Editor's Note: The remark that stated that Sanchez received his contract extension after the Tebow trade has been corrected. We regret the error.
