Why the Jets can cover
The Jets’ starters will get a chance to show just how much they are improved over last season’s 4-13 disappointment. Running back Breece Hall, the rookie second-round pick from Iowa State, is expected to get his longest look of the preseason after carrying five times for 15 yards last week, including a long of eight yards against the Eagles. A week earlier, he was held to one yard on four rushes vs. the Falcons. The Jets are high on Hall, who rushed for nearly 4,000 yards in three seasons with the Cyclones. Last fall, he carried 253 times for 1,472 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Also expected to get a longer look this week will be tight end Tyler Conklin, a free agent who played for the Minnesota Vikings in 2021. Last season, Conklin played in all 17 games for Minnesota, catching a career-high 61 passes for 593 yards (9.7 average) and three touchdowns. In the preseason opener against the Eagles, Conklin caught three passes for 23 yards, including a long of 10 yards.
