Training camp is a huge opportunity to finally get some answers that have been on the minds of many throughout the offseason. When it comes to the New York Jets, questions about the quarterback, offensive line and, of course, running back come to mind. Take a look at five questions that must be answered during training camp for the New York Jets.

Willie Colon suffered an injury a few weeks ago and raised the question on quality depth on the Jets' offensive line. He should be good to go come training camp, but what happens if he goes down with injury again? At the current moment, the Jets don't have anyone with true experience ready to step right in. If Colon still has issues upon his return or has a decline in his play, will the Jets grab a veteran offensive lineman just in case?

4. Should Antonio Allen start opposite Calvin Pryor this season?

Head coach Rex Ryan has loved putting the combination of Antonio Allen and Calvin Pryor at the safety positions as both have been thriving in the Jets' defensive secondary. Could this be the end of Dawan Landry as a starter due to his inconsistency? Training camp should provide the answer if this new duo will be the final product on the field once the regular season starts. Will this speedy duo work during the regular season?

3. With Tajh Boyd in the mix, is Matt Simms done with Jets?

It's no secret that quarterback Matt Simm's job was in jeopardy ever since the Jets drafted Tajh Boyd in the 2014 NFL Draft. If Boyd outperforms Simms during training camp, will it spell the end of Simm's tenure on the Jets?

Ever since the Jets acquired a whole bunch of new running backs, many have wondered just how they will execute the return to their ground-and-pound style of offense. With Chris Johnson in town, he should be expected to handle the majority of reps, but what if he's still hindered by his surgery or isn't up to the performance we think he will have? Will the Jets have a carousel at running back? Training camp should help give everyone clarity.

We all know quarterback Geno Smith has been unofficially named the starter for the Jets, but what happens if Michael Vick completely outplays him during training camp? What if he's actually better than Smith in all drills and during preseason? Will the Jets change the tune and give Vick the keys to it all if he's earned it? That's the biggest question facing the Jets this summer because it will determine the entire course of this upcoming season.
