Today was a quiet day around Jet land, as Rex took to the podium for this daily press conference, he kept it sane, and didnt really cause much of a stir, mentioned the starters wouldn’t play on Thursday, the Jets final exhibition game in Philadelphia, besides for LG Matt Slauson.
Rex went on to mention a few injuries such as Kenwin Cummings who has a shoulder injury, Calvin Pace, who had surgery on his broken foot tonight, that will keep him sidelined up to as much as 6 weeks, and Brodney Pool, who banged up his knee in Friday’s game, and Damien Woody with a lower back injury, all but Pace are expected back two weeks from tonight, as the Jets open the regular season at the new Meadowlands stadium.
Rex did mention a few things that took me by surprise, he said the team will “Most Likely” carry 4 TE’s, meaning Jeff Cumberland AND Matthew Mulligan will make the squad, most likely on special teams, the team will carry 2 FB’s Tony Richardson and rookie John “Terminator” Connor.
The quarterback position, which I touched on in my last article, will be intriguing, Rex mentioned that Kellen Clemens should make the team, meaning Kevin O’Connell will be cut.
With that wrap up of Rex’s Monday afternoon presser, I want to give you my Preseason week 4, final roster predictions. I’d love to hear some of the spots you think that are up for grabs, that you disagree or agree with me and why, lets take a look.

* Quick Notes*
* Santonio Holmes- Suspended 4 games
* Calvin Pace- Injured 4-6 weeks
* Darrelle Revis- Hold Out/Inactive list as of 8/30/2010 ( I do expect him back by opening night)
*L. Coles i truely believe will be back after week 1, and i think the Jets will try to pluck someone off waivers like a LB or WR
Again, this is NOT the official Jets Roster, its only my opinion. Hope you all enjoyed.
