    Tight End Depth chart

    The Jets did not acquire, draft or sign a Free Agent Tight End. They are not even bringing an UNDFA TE to camp. The only move remotely linked to the Tight End group was the signing of Fullback Darian Barnes. In the second year of this offense, it will be interesting to see how much Two back sets, versus 3 and 4 Wide receiver sets, and two Tight end sets the Jets will run.
    Ordinarily like most teams the Jets should keep 3 Tight Ends, but if you examine the Wide Receiver Depth, a case can be made to keep 6 WR's. Six WR's and two Full Backs could mean scaling back to two Tight Ends. Not too much excitement or controversy at this position, its the off season.

    1.Chris Baker
    2. Sean Ryan
    3. Jason Posiask
    4. Joseph Kowaleski

    Chris Baker TE : Baker has developed into a good tight end, IMO he has had a positive impact on the red zone offense, decent run blocker, good receiver. Chris's development seems to be linked on how much pass blocking he is required to do . As the OL improves Chris may get into a few more pass patterns.

    Sean Ryan TE: What a nice solid pick up. Certainly not a vertical threat, but a steady blocker, does all the dirty work. The concern here is that there is a big drop off in receiving ability if Baker were hurt.

    Jason Posiask TE: Last years 5th round pick out of Wisconsin. Spent the Year on Injured Reserve with I believe a shoulder problem. For the Badgers , Jason was a superb blocker, and a short range receiver. Seems to be a Sean Ryan clone. I thought we would see Jason at FB, but nothing so far in minicamp.

    Joseph Kowaleski TE: UNDFA out of Syracuse , spent the entire year on the practice squad. Joseph is the receiving TE of the group, may have a little deep speed. The jets showed a lot of Patience with Doug Jolly, IMO Shott is looking for a receiving TE, Kowaleski has a chance. Joseph is certainly a better blocker than Jolly, who isn't, and has better receiving skills than Ryan or Posiask

    Man is that true - remember some of his catches last year? Not only couldn't he catch the ball but he just looked really awkward carrying the thing - think he fumbled once or twice, too.

    Don't forget about James Dearth, our long snapper. He also plays TE.

    Yup, was just going to post that. He had a couple drops that would've given us key first downs, and a fumble after a nice catch as well.
