    The 53-man Roster Is Almost Set

    posted by: Site Admin | 3 comments | Jets Preseason

    According to head coach Rex Ryan, there are about six spots still up for grabs on the projected 53-man roster that every NFL team must finalize by 4 PM EST this Saturday. The Jets currently have 75 players on their roster and will have to cut 20 of them to comply with the league's rules (the Jets will be allowed to carry two players over the limit due to the upcoming suspensions for LB Calvin Pace and DE Shaun Ellis). Once these cuts are finalized, the Gang Green will be able to put 8 players on their practice squad.
