EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The good news is the Jets really have no choice but to play most of their starters in their preseason opener. Or maybe that's the bad news given the low expectations for this team.

But Jets GM Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles have promised competition all summer long for almost every job on the roster, and the competition begins for real against the Tennessee Titans at the Meadowlands on Saturday night. Not all jobs are up for grabs, of course, but quite a few are.

Here's an inside look at some of the battles and 10 intriguing players to watch:

Jets are down with Enunwa out 00:01:09

Quincy Enunwa is nice receiver with decent size (6-2, 225) who can make tough catches. And his production last season as the Jets' No. 2 receiver after Eric Decker got hurt was unexpectedly good.

But he's never been thought of as one of the players the Jets could least afford to lose. He's never been considered irreplaceable.

The Jets have signed WR Chris Harper and wavied TE Braedon Bowman, according to newyorkjets.com.

Harper spent the 2016 season with the 49ers, where he totaled 133 yards on 13 receptions in nine games. Undrafted out of Cal in 2015, he signed with the Patriots where he split time on the active roster and practice squad.

Harper spent three seasons at Cal where he posted 163 receptions, 2,030 yards and 13 touchdowns in 35 career games. 

Bowman was picked up off waivers by the Jets last September. He played in three games before tearing his ACL, which ended his season.
