Jets 2018 Roster Countdown: Number 49 Dylan Donahue

Recommended Posts

Dylan Donahue is the next Jet in our roster countdown.Name: Dylan DonahueNumber: 49Year with Jets: 2ndProjected Role: Backup edge player and special teamerHis 2017: Donahue got some early buzz and work with the first team defense in offseason practices. He ended up fading Womens Kelvin Beachum Jersey , however, and had a rookie season that was both quiet and short. He tore ligaments in an elbow in an early season game, which ended his rookie campaign after recording only 5 tackles.The biggest news about Donahue unfortunately came due to an offseason arrest on drunk driving charges and the revelation he was also arrested last year on similar charges. Donahue spent a month in rehab during the offseason.2018 will be a success if: Donahue first of all has been able to put his life back together. That is the most important thing. On the field, it would relate to him developing into a contributor as a pass rusher and special teamer.Odds of making the roster: I have no idea the extent to which Donahue’s off field situation will play into the team’s decision-making. On the field www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com , there is a clear opening and need at edge rusher. Donahue could play his way into a role, but an unestablished second year fifth round pick is never a lock. He would be a likely practice squad candidate if he fails to make the final 53, but for now I would call him More Likely Than Not (50-75%).Jets 2018 Roster Countdown: Number 47 David Bass Our Jets roster countdown now looks to David Bass.Name: David BassNumber: 47Year with Jets: 2ndProjected Role: Situational pass rusherHis 2017: The Seahawks released Bass early in the season, and the Jets signed him prior to their Week 3 game against the Dolphins. Bass promptly registered sacks in his first two games in the green and white but only picked up 1.5 more over the final 11 games of the season. He remained unsigned through much of the offseason. The Jets finally re-signed him after not selecting an edge rusher in the NFL Draft.2018 will be a success if: Bass plays at a much higher level than he has in the rest of his career. He only has 9 career sacks despite being in the league since 2013. For some reason players like like this tend to get the “solid veteran” label even though only the veteran part is accurate.Odds of making the roster: The fact the Jets left him unsigned for so long means he isn’t totally safe New York Jets T-Shirt , but I think the coaching staff’s familiarity with him makes Bass More Likely Than Not (50-75%).
