Guys on the hotseat tonight

Here are some bubble guys to keep an eye on in the Jets-Eagles game:

LB Anthony Schlegel - he's been buried with the third team all summer. It will be nice to see him play earlier than the fourth quarter. He is definitely on the fence.

CB Alphonso Hodge - the former Kansas City Chief has had a non-descript preseason. He needs to make some noise tonight if he wants any chance at hanging around.

LB Andre Wadsworth - he looks like he has something left, but he's still learning how to be an outside linebacker, after playing defensive end in his previous NFL life. The practice squad would be a perfect place for him, but he's not eligible. If he makes some plays against Philly, he could buy some more time. He clearly a better pass rusher than Matt Chatham.

DE Michael Haynes - time is running out for this former Chicago Bears #1 pick. Aside from a tipped pass in the Jets first preseason game, he has been a non-factor. He needs a monster game at "The Linc."

OG Adrian Clarke - the Jets have obviously soured him to a certain degree since he's now behind rookie Jacob Bender at left guard. The former Eagle needs a big game tonight in his adopted hometown.

WR Frisman Jackson - we know he can play in the NFL. He proved that during his three years in Cleveland, but needs to make some plays tonight to convince the Jets to carry six wide receiver.

TE Jason Pociask - he clearly deserves to make the team based on his play this preseason, but the Jets have several players in front of him at this two positions (he also plays fullback), and he might need to do a little more to make the active roster.
