“Really, he is just a real natural football player,” Mornhinweg said of Powell. “Things come easily to him. You teach him something and then he gets it very quickly.”
The Jets are by no means a great football team. But they have all the makings of being one some day because they are physical and impose their will in the places that matter most: the trenches.
The battle between Jets rookie Geno Smith and first-year Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel has garnered most of the headlines. But for New York, this game will be all about stopping Mario Williams.
The New York Jets’ offensive line has watched plenty of film of Mario Williams the past few days. The Buffalo Bills’ star defensive end had 4 ½ sacks against Carolina last Sunday, looking very much like the Super Mario of the past.
The New York Jets have re-signed special teamer Josh Mauga.
Darrelle Revis is moving closer to getting back on the football field. Whether that’s with the New York Jets next season remains to be seen.
The New York Jets released veteran linebackers Bart Scott and Calvin Pace and three other players, clearing about $31 million in salary cap space.
