21 Victor Green: Green became a fan favorite as a Jet first for his special teams play, then for his relentless tackling as the team's starting safety. Green has been the Jets' best tackling safety in recent memory, twice registering over 100 solo tackles in a season. He is a member of the Jets All-Time Four Decade Team.
22 Erik McMillan: Just as fast as McMillan burst onto the scene in the late 1980s, he was gone. McMillan was a play-making safety with a knack for the big interception before falling out of shape not long into his Jets career. However, at his peak, he was the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year and a Pro Bowl performer.
23 Shonn Greene: Sixteen players wore No. 23 before Greene, but none were featured players for any length of time. Greene certainly has his detractors, but if you give the running back a hole, he's going to hit it hard and get his yards. He topped the 1,000-yard mark in 2011 and has been a key postseason performer for the Jets
24 Darrelle Revis: This may have been the toughest decision on the board. Two of the great players in franchise history, Revis and Freeman McNeil, both wore No. 24. While McNeil is the team's second-leading rusher of all time, there was never a time when he was discussed as a future Hall of Fame player.
McNeil played 12 seasons on the Jets to Revis' five, but Revis is playing on a level that very few Jets have at any position.
25 Kerry Rhodes: Rhodes may not be the type of player who fits into Rex Ryan's style of play, but the fact remains that the team hasn't had as good a safety as Rhodes since he left.
26 Erik Coleman: Since 1960, 23 different players have worn No. 26 for the Jets and not a single one has been an impact player. Coleman did well as a safety in his four years as a Jet, teaming up Rhodes to give the team a solid deep tandem in the secondary.
27 Jerald Sowell: As I did with Ray Lucas, this one is a little bit of a cheat as Sowell switched from 27 to 33 after his rookie season. However, if we didn't bend the rules here, we'd be looking at Russell Carter as the best Jet to wear No. 27. Sowell was a terrific role player for the Jets for eight years, thriving as a fullback and special teams ace.
28 Curtis Martin: Ten players wore No. 28 before Martin, and none will wear it after him. The recent inductee to the Pro Football Hall of Fame was as tough and classy a player as there has been in the NFL. Martin will rightfully have his number retired this year and will go down as one of the great Jets of all time.
29 Bake Turner: There have been some good Jets to wear No. 29 over the years, like Adrian Murrell, Leon Washington and Johnny Lynn, but the nod here goes to Turner. A member of the Jets from back in the AFL days, Turner was a dangerous return man and split end who made the AFL All-Star Game after catching 71 balls for 1,009 yards in 1963.
30 Brad Baxter: As much as I'd like to give this honor to Nuu Faaola, there's no denying Baxter was the best Jet to ever wear No. 30. Baxter left no question about his game plan as a running back. He was going to take the ball, run straight ahead, and too bad for you, if you were in the way.
His best season came in 1991 when he rushed for 666 yards and 11 touchdowns.
