The New York Jets aren't in the playoffs, but a bunch of their former players and coaches are. If you're checking out the games on TV, you may see these names:
Jerricho Cotchery, WR, Carolina Panthers: He was a fourth-round pick in 2004, which makes him the oldest-drafted Jet still playing in the NFL. Former general manager Mike Tannenbaum's biggest regret was cutting Cotchery, who has impressive career numbers -- 524 catches, 6,623 yards and 34 touchdowns.
Josh Mauga, LB, Chiefs: He played with the Jets from 2010 to 2012, battling injuries. He found a home in Kansas City, where he's a part-time player.
Drew Stanton, QB, Arizona Cardinals: He was a Jet for about a minute during the 2012 offseason. He signed a free-agent contract, but was traded a few days later because the Jets thought they had found someone better -- Tim Tebow.
Jonathan Grimes, RB, Texans: He had a cup of coffee with the Jets in 2012. He has 26 receptions in a backup role for the Texans.
Prominent former Jets coaches in the postseason: Bill Belichick, HC (New England Patriots); Pete Carroll, head coach (Seattle Seahawks); Bob Sutton, defensive coordinator (Chiefs); Todd Haley, offensive coordinator (Pittsburgh Steelers); Romeo Crennel, defensive coordinator (Texans); Ben Kotwica, special teams (Washington Redskins).
