Sanchez, New Stars Shine For Jets In Scrimmage
CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) LaDainian Tomlinson and Santonio Holmes had standout performances in the New York Jets’ scrimmage for an offense that quarterback Mark Sanchez says is “big play by committee.”
Coach Rex Ryan says the offense outperformed the defense in the 67-minute practice Saturday night. Tomlinson and Holmes, both major offseason pickups, were a major reason.
Tomlinson, who signed with New York after nine seasons in San Diego, took a pass from Sanchez and ran down the sideline for a 70-yard touchdown on the first play.
Holmes, acquired from Pittsburgh, had two catches of 20-plus yards – one each from Sanchez and backup Mark Brunell.
Wide receiver David Clowney missed the scrimmage to deal with an undisclosed personal issue.
