Your questions, my answers on the New York Jets:Devin Smith, hurt Kerley's standing. We all know that Smith busted his ribs at the start of camp, but it was Quincy Enunwa -- not Kerley -- who jumped into the No. 3 role. It's weird because general manager Mike Maccagnan sounded high on Kerley in early April, offering unsolicited praise. "I'm kind of excited to see him get a few more reps than he got last year in terms of his playing time," Maccagnan said at the time. Evidently, their opinion of Kerley has changed. From a football standpoint, Todd Bowles likes the idea of having a big body (Enunwa) as the No. 3. He's a better blocker than Kerley. Personally, I like Kerley. He's a gamer. He's a more polished receiver than Enunwa.
Philadelphia Eagles. Johnson became available at an odd time -- a week before the first cutdown date -- and I think the Jets felt it was an opportunity to add another experienced arm. Rookie Jake Heaps was just taking up a roster spot, so why not swap them out? There was no downside.
Zach Mettenberger. First of all, I don't think the Tennessee Titans have any interest in trading him. Marcus Mariota is the present and the future, but you always need insurance behind a rookie. The Jets will go through this season with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith, with Matt Flynn (or Josh Johnson) as the emergency backup until Smith is healthy. Acquiring a player of Mettenberger's ilk -- a young, unproven player with some upside -- is a "for-the-future" move. That kind of move will take place after the season, if at all.
Ben Ijalana, Brian Winters, Wesley Johnson and Brent Qvale. Oday Aboushi is in serious jeopardy of getting cut. Rookie Jarvis Harrison isn't one of the top nine, but he could make it because he's a draft pick.
Marcus Williams, linebacker Trevor Reilly and safety Rontez Miles.
