Top 5 New York Jets I Would Like To Use In Madden 25
We are really excited about the new Madden Share feature in Madden NFL 25 and all of the possibilities that could come from this that it got me thinking about who we would like to see on a roster for each team historically. In this series of articles Game Changers Alex Barlow and Shopmaster will attempt to select the top 5 guys for each team that they would like to see in the game and on that teams’ roster. You won’t see any current players, just players that are not going to be in the game.
5. Mo Lewis, LB – Mo Lewis finished as the Jets’ all-time leader in tackler with 1,231, opponents’ fumbles recovered with 18 and forced fumbles with 29. In addition, his 52.5 sacks marked him as a threat to quarterbacks as well. Lewis also intercepted 14 passes, returning four for touchdowns, and added another touchdown from a fumble recovery. The Jets defense would get a boost by having him on the field.
4. Wesley Walker, WR – Walker led the NFL with 21.1 yards per catch in 1977. The next year was even better. In 1978, Walker caught 48 passes for 1,169 yards, 24.4 yards per reception, and scored eight touchdowns. Both his receiving yards and yards per catch led the NFL. His reward was a Pro Bowl invitation and selection as first-team All-NFL wide receiver. Walker would boost a Jets WR corps that could use someone opposite of Santonio Holmes.
3. Mark Gastineau, DE – When Gastineau began his career, Joe Klecko had already had set team records for sacks by a rookie, eight, and consecutive games with at least one full sack, 10. Gastineau did not break those rookie records, but Gastineau did beat Klecko’s team sack records by 30. Gastineau’s career sack record still stands after 25 years.
2. Curtis Martin, RB – Martin averaged 4.0 yards per carry throughout his career. In 2004, his penultimate season, Martin led the NFL with 371 attempts and 1,697 yards, both team records. No other 31-year-old back has ever attained that yardage. Yet throughout his career Martin was accused of wearing down. Martin wasn’t flashy but he was effective and could start on the Jet’s team today and make the offense a lot better. The most durable back I have seen in my lifetime.
1. Joe Namath, QB – You can’t even mention great Jets without first thinking about Joe Namath. And if you had your pick of Sanchez, Geno, or Namath, you’d probably go Namath. Namath hold a lot of the Jets passing records, too many to list, and probably won’t be broken anytime soon. You may not know that Namath holds the team record for interceptions at 215, but if also holds the record for team TDs at 117. No matter what, don’t expect Namath to “Buttfumble” as a starting QB for the Jets.
