With their 53 man roster set (kind of), the Jets released their first depth chart and as usual, there are a few spots worth noting, starting with the quarterback position.

It looks like Todd Bowles did the right thing and placed Bryce Petty in the no. 2 spot behind starter Josh McCown. Petty was light years better than Christian Hackenberg from start to finish this pre-season, and clearly earned the back up job.

Bryce Petty has been named the number 2 quarterback.

Much of the off-season and pre-season was spent discussing right tackles Brandon Shell and Brent Qvale as the candidates to start, but it appears one of the teams starters from last season, Ben Ijalana will get first crack at the job after working at both tackle spots throughout camp.

Despite rumors of the team looking to move him via trade, the elder statesman of the offense, Matt Forte, is listed as the team’s starting running back once again.  Now we wait for the season to unfold and see just how carries are split between Forte, Bilal Powell and rookie Elijah McGuire.  At this point in time, Forte may be the least effective back on the roster.

The center battle appears to have gone to incumbent Wesley Johnson, but don’t be surprised if we see some others get a look at some point this season.

Wesley Jonson looks to have held off Jonotthan Harrison for the starting center spot.

Wide receiver Jalin Marshall, who is suspended for the first four games of the season, is listed as the team’s no. 2 receiver across from Robby Anderson.
