RB Shonn Greene Shonn Greene is an interesting case. He’s not a particularly talented back, but he’s shown he’s capable of carrying a load and moving the chains and the Jets are really thin at running back behind him. They are their best when they are run heavy and unless another one of their backs steps up this season, the Jets might not see the franchise tag value for running backs (7.7 million in 2012) as too much to pay for a workhorse chain moving back like Greene. Likelihood: Somewhat unlikely TE Dustin Keller Dustin Keller broke out in 2011 and the led team with a career high 65 catches for 815 yards and 5 touchdowns.

New York Jets: Offensive Depth Still Area Of Concern

There is a fine line between having confidence in your young players and being ignorant about the depth on your roster. The New York Jets are walking that line right now. A suggestion for the addition of a veteran running back or wide receiver isn’t a questioning of the future potential of the youth at those positions but a call for needed insurance, in case of injury or a lack...
