Late August In Florham Park Could Be Wild! Dan Leberfeld

This could be a day loaded with surprises. Circle it on your calendar.

Talking about August 31 when the Jets (and all NFL teams) have to cut from 90 to 53 players.

Some Jets players you might assume are safe, probably aren’t.

The new GM and coach have little allegiance to most of the players on this roster. They didn’t sign or draft a lot of them, and that pertains to some guys added this year.

This could be one of the most interesting final cut down days we have seen in Jets-land in a long time.

Some people are saying that most of the roster is set. Probably not.

I’m telling you right now, there are going to be names on the cut list where Jets fans will say, “Whoa!”

And that is they way it should be.

The object is assemble the best 53-man roster and 10-man practice squad you can, minus agendas.

In the past at One Jets Drive, there have been too many agendas, not always driven by keeping the best players.

August 31 should be quite an intriguing day in Florham Park.
