If CW makes it,then there are serious concerns over the durability of Greene and Tomlinson, and that is not a good thing. If Woodhead makes it,then McKnight has bust written all over him. Woodheads chances are very slim, but he is coming into his second year off a knee injury, the hope is that he shows some explosion. Little Dannys best chance may be as a receiver, I am not sure if the Welker experiment is dead, the Jets need to develop an underneath passing game, Danny could be the Jets version of Edelman ( who was a rookie free agent last year).
TRich's value comes from his mentoring of Greene, Connor and Sanchez. IMO Tony is important for Sanchez in the huddle, that calming veteran presence.
If Tony is completely done, IMO you cut him in week six after Holmes comes back from suspension, but Tony is the glue that will keep the offense together until other leaders emerge.
I enjoy rooting for woodhead and hope he does well, but he simply is not worth a spot on this roster and I dont think its even close.
The slot experiment last year was ridiculous, and woodhead is very poor as a specail teams player. Although he is quick, he is not a guy to get the ball 20 times in the event of a disastrous run of injuries at RB.
We keep our top 3, and keep chauncey on the practice squad. We also keep 2 FBs, as conner can play special teams and I think this team needs a guy like TRich for veteran leadership. Conner can take over next year, and can also carry the ball in a pinch this year....

or maybe it just means that Chauncey is showing some talent? I'm not that familiar with the guy, other than reading some stuff around the last draft about this guy, but people were high on him. If he could play special teams, it might very well serve the Jets to hold onto a 3rd RB.. just ask Dedrick Ward..
the jets need to have at least 4 rb's, including the fb, ready each game day so that probably means greene, tomlinson, mcknight or woodhead, and richardson or conner. i don't think washington will figure into the mix unless he shows something in camp.
I would say drop woodhead...he's a nice story but really with his size he can't do much at all....people have been liking washington lately and he does have some upside...wouldn't be surprised if he does well in camp this year and t rich will not be cut this camp....he's going to mentor conner for this season and when the end of the season rolls around then you'll see t rich get released
You guys are crazy thinking Tony Richardson and Conner both won't make the team... Richardson is still a top tier FB why would you ever cut him.... and conner is the eventual replacement... Period, no discussion.... it just is what it is...
Now LT, Greene and Mcknight will make the team with the last spot a toss up between Washington and Woodhead... with the loser going to PS.... everything will come out in training camp....
so 4 + 2 on the roster... and Absolutely 2 FB.... not normal... but very necessary... especially for a second year RB coming off his 2nd injury in a year... we need Tony
