The Jets are no longer at a crossroads. They have finally achieved stability in the front office under the deliberate leadership of general manager John Idzik and boast the resources necessary to continue building for the future.
Few players currently slotted on the Jets' pre-camp 53-man depth chart don't have the seeming luxury of looking ahead to the future.
While the Jets are mostly composed of younger players, some veterans will hold specific roles on the 2014 squad. With that said, some of these veterans must perform at a high level in training camp in order to secure their respective roster spots.
In the new era of Jets football, where intra-squad competition rules the day on the practice field, there will be no handouts—regardless of what one particular player has accomplished.
Idzik won't hesitate to severely alter the complexion of the Jets' roster if he feels it's in the best interest of the team.
