It seems like it wasn't long ago that the Jets primary?receivers in the passing game were on the shorter side. The size of the receivers the Jets have used as primary targets has drastically changed in the last two years, but it's this year where new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey is preparing to use his big boys to help his quarterback get better matchups by playing them in the slot.

I noticed this trend early in camp and wrote about it, but it would seem that Gailey has accelerated the use of the wrinkle along with the players who could see time out of the slot this year for the Jets,?according to the Daily News.

The Jets have a decision to make between Matt Flynn and Josh Johnson as their backup QB. If they are willing to take a gamble, the Jets could save money on either of their contracts (Cimini, Sept. 4).

Each player is a "vested" veteran, meaning they have played at least three and half years in the NFL, their contracts would be fully guaranteed if they are on an opening day roster. Johnson, 29, would be owed $745,000 if he's on an opening day roster.

Now that the Jets have played their third preseason game, the 53 man roster is starting to come into focus. ?While there are a number of roster spots that will need to be rectified when players come back from suspension or the short term injured reserve, this is my best guess at the team's cutdown roster based on what we've seen in practice, in the preseason and knowing the team's projected playing style this season.

    The NFL upheld their four-game suspension of Tom Brady due to 'Deflategate,' the league announced.

    "Based on the Wells Report and the evidence presented at the hearing, Commissioner Goodell concluded in his decision that Brady was aware of, and took steps to support?, the actions of other team employees to deflate game footballs below the levels called for by the NFL's Official Playing Rules," the league said. "The commissioner found that Brady?s deliberate destruction of potentially relevant evidence went beyond a mere failure to cooperate in the investigation and supported a finding that he had sought to hide evidence of his own participation in the underlying scheme to alter the footballs."
