No matter how the final five weeks of this season play out for the New York Jets, more changes are on the horizon for a roster that is still in its developmental stages.
With new front office management, Jets general manager Josh Idzik will want to shape his roster with the exact players he chooses, taking away job security from even the most entrenched veterans on the team.
The Jets have several players who are one-year rentals, but they need to start making decisions on some other long-tenured players who are entering the twilight of their careers. Leaving bad contracts around on a team that is trying to rebuild is a surefire way to stunt growth.
Here are some players who the Jets will need to move on from in the near future.
