The Jets acquired four players on waivers today and released four players from their 53-man roster to make room for them.

Then again, the Dolphins are also basking in the glow of a two-game win streak after a rough start. And while the Jets like playing in front of their South Florida fan base, the ‘Fins are wrapping up a five-week homestand, including last week’s bye. And the Jets have never played at Hard Rock Stadium (the new name of the venue formerly known as Sun Life).

In other words, it won’t be easy for the Jets. But head coach Todd Bowles continues to believe in a couple of traits that he sees in his team.Nike Jets Men's Ugly Sweater

“Our character and our leadership in the locker room,” Bowles said. “We’re working at it now. None of these wins are going to be easy. Believe me, every week is going to be a battle cry. But we were losing these games the first part of the season, so we came back and won two of them right now and we just have to keep building off of that.”

The waiver pickups are TE from Jacksonville, TE Brian Parker from Kansas City, RB Troymaine Pope from Seattle and CB Darryl Roberts from New England.

Tight end continued to be used primarily as a blocking position, which worked out OK in Chan Gailey’s first year as OC, not so well last season. In 2015-16 combined, Jets TEs had 26 receptions for 268 yards — the lowest totals by an team at the position in back-to-back seasons in two decades. Before and after ’ midseason move to IR, several TEs contributed: played in all 16 games with seven starts, while Austin Seferian-Jenkins, despite several injuries, and Eric Tomlinson, signed off the Texans’ practice squad in November, played in seven games each.

And as spoke for himself, he spoke for his team. A down year is over but Marshall and the Jets are not out.

“We just didn’t do the things we did last year. We didn’t make the plays. We need to do a better job of doing that,” he said. “We’ll have some time to do some self-assessment these next couple of months, going home early again. And we’ll figure it out.”

“Obviously that’s a big part of it. I know we have passionate fans here that really care,” Marshall said. “Sometimes they show their displeasure and I’m sure they’ll do that if we don’t turn it around and they should do that. But we definitely need them on michael vick jets jersey Sunday, we’re in it together. We have to understand some of our fans are more invested in our team than we are. They’ve been around as season ticket holders for 30, 40, 50 years from one generation to the next. But at the end of the day, we want what they want. What they want, we want and we just have to do it together. It’s not only the product on the field, but creating that environment is important. We need it to be electric and outstanding. And I’m expecting that Sunday.”

“Unless he comes out there in the next couple of days, it’ll be slim,” said head coach Todd Bowles when asked about Harris’ chances of playing Sunday. “He still has a few days to get better.”

Harris, who went down late in the first half of the Jets’ Week 5 loss at Pittsburgh, has started 121 consecutive regular-season games. He is currently second on the team with 28 tackles.
