Guys like Revis, Keller, and Pouha didn't really play last year.
+1 I was really shocked on how little Keller did last year even when healthy. I'll say G too but I dont think we lost all that much there. Slauson was not very good and Moore's play have declined last year. Wasnt the run blocker he used to be.
Safety: Landry Brother swap is a downgrade. we don;t know who the starter is at the other Safety spot yet.
Tight End: Keller gone, Baker hurt and gone, only Cumberland and some unknown remain.
IMO, thats it. Cornerback will be better than 2012 (as Revis did not play in 2012), and Linebacker may look worse, but I'll bet it's better with younger, hungrier players in place of aged veteran "name" players.
Everywhere else should be better or at worst, equal, talent wise.
I agree that it's a downgrade over a healthy Keller, but Keller started 5 games for the Jets last year.
Most likely the replacement for Slauson will be a downgrade.
imo the jets have improved everywhere but at cb and te and that's assuming that revis would have come back from his injury and milliner won't be able to play the position right out of the box. as for te, the jets haven't had one since mickey shuler. keller was average at best. the big improvement came on both lines. the dline has improved with richardson and the additional seasoning of guys like ellis and coples and the oline improved with the drafted guy and the replacement of moore. not that moore wasn't a good player but he was also getting injured and not playing as well as he used to.
