The New York Jets depth chart is a constant piece of clay to mold and one that instantly improves with the additions of rookies Sauce Gardner and Garrett Wilson.

General manager Joe Douglas is still adding to the incredibly bare roster he was handed while doing so through both the NFL draft and open market. Now that the offseason is here, the organization’s depth chart will enter a constant state of flux en route to improving both star power and depth.

At quarterback, there’s Zach Wilson. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft is the undoubted face of the franchise. Fellow 2021 rookie class teammates Michael Carter and Elijah Moore also have prominent seats at the depth chart table.

As long as Mekhi Becton can play ball, he and Alijah Vera-Tucker make for a young nucleus on the offense line. Pair that with George Fant and newcomer Laken Tomlinson, and suddenly, New York’s offensive line looks more than solid.

The team’s two new free-agent acquisitions at tight end, C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin, should also help Wilson and company immediately.

Defensively, the Jets have a few pieces—namely Bryce Hall, Quinnen Williams, John Franklin-Myers, Carl Lawson and C.J. Mosley—but a lot of work remains, even after the additions of D.J. Reed and Jordan Whitehead.

Keep track of the New York Jets depth chart all offseason, at Jets X-Factor, as the 2022 NFL offseason progresses.

New York Jets depth chart

The New York Jets roster and depth chart is about one thing at the moment: youth.

New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas ensured that he signed a six-year deal to become the personnel boss in Florham Park—for a very good reason. The quick fix simply does not cut it anymore.

When Rex Ryan assumed control of the Eric Mangini-Mike Tannenbaum roster in 2009, the Jets did damage in January to make back-to-back AFC championship games. Unfortunately, the Ryan-Tannenbaum partnership didn’t add onto one of the best rosters in the NFL, and the Ryan-John Idzik front office regressed it to the point of no return.

Aside from a mirage that was Mike Maccagnan’s “aggressive rebuild” in 2015, the Jets have needed a massive overhaul for the better part of the last decade.

Douglas and company are looking for long-lasting success, not a quality year here or there. It’s why the lumps will have to be taken now while the youngsters develop.

NY Jets Roster FAQ

How many players can the New York Jets play (dress) each game?

Per NFL rules, each team can dress 48 players in a game, and this includes the New York Jets. The number used to be 45 for a long time, until the league increased it to 46 and then eventually 48 for the 2020-pandemic-ridden season.

How many practice squad players can the New York Jets employ?

The New York Jets, just like every other NFL team, can employ up to 16 practice squad players, a. new number that was introduced in 2020.

Can the New York Jets' practice squad players play in games?

Prior to 2020, no practice squad players could play in games. However, nowadays, the New York Jets (and every NFL team) can elevate two practice squad players to dress each game (making the active roster a total of 48 players). The catch is that practice squad players can only be elevated twice in a season safely. Once a practice squad players is elevated a third time, he will become exposed for other teams to claim.

When do the New York Jets have to cut players during the preseason?

In 2021, the New York Jets had to cut down to 85 players on Aug. 17 at 4 p.m. ET, and then to 80 players a week later on Aug. 24 at 4 p.m. ET. The final roster cut to get down to 53 players for Week 1 was Aug. 31, 2021.
