New York Jets – Thoughts on Waiver Wire Additions & Current 53

A handful of thoughts on the New York Jets waiver moves today and where their current 53 man roster sits at. 1. It was mildly surprising to see the Jets add running back Alex Green and then cut ties with Kahlil Bell, considering how strongly Bell finished the pre-season.
