McGuire will have to earn a roster spot in camp, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ.com reports.
Stypulkoski's prediction for the roster has McGuire on the outside looking in, but the 25-year-old running back still has plenty of time to change that outlook during training camp and the preseason. The Jets are unlikely to carry five running backs when the season starts, meaning one of Bilal Powell, Ty Montgomery, Trenton Cannon or McGuire will likely be on the chopping block with new starter Le'Veon Bell assured the top spot on the depth chart. Montgomery can also play wide receiver while Cannon could morph into an ace on special teams, while McGuire doesn't bring the versatility often required of players on the roster bubble.

- McGuire will likely work as the Jets' No. 3 running back next season in the wake of the team signing Ty Montgomery to back up Le'Veon Bell, Andy Vasquez of USA Today reports.
- McGuire will compete with Trenton Cannon and De'Angelo Henderson for backfield slotting behind prized offseason acquisition Le'Veon Bell, WFAN.com reports.
- McGuire rushed 18 times for 41 yards and added 24 yards on two catches while also losing a fumble in Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Patriots. He finishes the season with 276 yards and three touchdowns on 92 carries, along with 19 catches for 193 yards and a touchdown, All Elijah McGuire News
