I’ve never seen this Dan Leberfeld

While we all know the starters generally don’t play in the fourth preseason game, I’ve never seen a team have the the starters (and some key reserves) not even wear pads on the sidelines.
The Jets players, who aren’t slated to play tonight, have no pads on.
This is a good example as to why the fourth preseason game will be a thing of past, possibly as soon as next year.
It’s an insult to the fans.
