New York Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson says the team’s often-criticized defensive backs have a chance to “shut people up” this season.
Geno Smith and Andy Dalton had horrid performances in their last games at Paul Brown Stadium. And neither has forgotten.
What a whirlwind of a week for Antonio Allen. And, it was still only Tuesday.
While many of the fans continue to freak out over the Jets’ well-documented problems at cornerback, head coach Rex Ryan tried something different at practice on Monday.
The New York Jets safety is no longer the hard-hitting, ball-hawking youngster who could single-handedly change a game. But, Reed insists, he’s still pretty darn good.
Rex Ryan says the Jets will be “smart” about how many snaps Santonio Holmes plays against the Bills to avoid reinjuring the hamstring.
The New York Jets and nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed have agreed to terms on a contract, reuniting coach Rex Ryan with one of his favorite players.
This is not, nor was it expected to be, a playoff team. For those who cling to the belief that the Jets defense is worthy enough to keep them competitive in every game, think again.
Now, everyone will be talking about the curious call in overtime that secured New York’s win over New England. But that doesn’t even happen without Ryan’s halftime adjustments.
While the New York Jets’ quarterback competition is far from settled, Matt Simms certainly showed Thursday he might deserve to stick around when the season starts.
“I hope when he plays, there are those comparisons, and I understand where people are coming from,” Rex Ryan said. “But Darrelle was a special player. Dee Milliner is never going to be Darrelle Revis. He’s going to be Dee Milliner.”
Dawan Landry, the older of the two brothers, was cut by the Jaguars prior to the start of free agency. The former fifth-round pick played in all 16 games for the Jags in 2012, accumulating 100 tackles and an interception.
The New York Jets have promoted linebacker Ricky Sapp from the practice squad to the active roster and added safety Antonio Allen to the practice squad.
There will be no dramatic Super Bowl return for Darrelle Revis. Head coach Rex Ryan said Revis will have surgery next week to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, suffered almost three weeks ago at Miami.
The Jets claimed Aaitui and Gates from Miami, and Reuland from San Francisco.
