NFL training camps open at the end of the month for every team. Ahead of the regular season start, the Jets have some jobs that will be won during camp.
As July creeps towards the latter stages, NFL training camps will begin throughout the league. For many teams, rookies will arrive first with the grizzled veterans strolling in a few days after.
These players are greeted by cheers from fans, hollers from coaches and the scent of a brand-new season on the horizon. Of course, many of these players know where they stand on their respective team’s roster.
For others, players must attempt to scratch and claw their way onto the 53-man roster by winning positional battles throughout training camp and the preseason. Over at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center, various positions will be determined this way.
Compared to recent years for the Jets, Adam Gase and his staff will have much more talent in the room. After another losing season, free agency was a success and the team also drafted a few potential starters.
Even so, some crucial positions will require a clear-cut winner this summer before the team names a player a starter. What are the five positional battles to keep an eye on during Gang Green’s training camp this summer?
