New York Jets roster cuts following 2021 training camp

NFL teams are cutting down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the New York Jets sort out their roster decisions.

The New York Jets appear to have found an answer at quarterback after taking Zach Wilson with the No. 2 pick in the 2021 NFL draft, but head coach Robert Saleh has a lot of work to do across the roster. The Jets are in rebuilding mode, but hope to remain competitive in each game as they watch their young quarterback develop.

There are questions at wide receiver and running back for New York. Elijah Moore and Denzel Mims are intriguing young players, but Corey Davis and Jamison Crowder are the top two options at the moment. Moore’s injury has not helped his cause. At running back, rookie Michael Carter has failed to break from a group including Ty Johnson, Tevin Coleman and La’Mical Perine.
