5. Trevor Siemian, QB

The Jets' quarterback situation was a mess in 2023 as Rodgers' injury forced head coach Robert Saleh to start four different signal-callers. Veteran journeyman Trevor Siemian was one of them and it's safe to say that he didn't produce any desirable results.

Starting three times while making two relief appearances, Siemian completed 86-of-153 passing attempts (56.2%) for 724 yards, two touchdowns, four interceptions, and a 62.1 passer rating. Although he did lead the Jets to a game-winning drive against the Washington Commanders in Week 16, it was hardly enough to make fans forget about his many shortcomings.

The Jets' QB situation behind Rodgers is up in the air, but Siemian can't be a part of it going forward. He just isn't a gunslinger that New York can rely on if, god forbid, Rodgers winds up hurt again. Siemian's best performances happened nearly a decade ago and he won't get back to that level, regardless of who the Jets surround him with.

The 32-year-old veteran has already spent time with seven different NFL organizations, so it isn't unfathomable to imagine him ending up with an eighth in the coming months.
