Players likely to become available
With roster cut-downs not far away, in the context of the Jets particular needs, what player are you excited about who might become available leading up to week one.
Previously mentioned by JI posters were Raiders rookie free-agent punter Marquette King and Jordan Shipley (who was cut but apparently because of his medical status has no takers to this point).
To me I'm interested in the Baltimore kicking competition. Is the loser of the Ravens kicking competition better than the winner of the Jets kicking competition ?
Here is a short blurb from the Baltimore Sun today
Billy Cundiff: 'This is really a competition with myself'

On Friday night, Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff booted a field goal in a game at M&T Bank Stadium for the first time since his miss sealed the Ravens' fate in last year’s AFC championship game in Foxboro, Mass. There was a smattering of applause when he connected from 33 yards to give the Ravens a 3-0 lead in the first quarter of the 27-12 preseason loss to the Detroit Lions. He later added a 44-yarder.
Rookie kicker Justin Tucker, who is competing with Cundiff for a roster spot, made both of his attempts Friday. Tucker made a 50-yard field goal in the first half and a 45-yarder in the second.
Both have kicked well in training camp, but Tucker has been more accurate and showed off his big leg by making a 63-yard field goal at an open practice at M&T Bank Stadium two weeks ago."
