Gone is the man considered by many to be one of the best players in team history, and perhaps the best cornerback in the NFL. But, Rex Ryan believes Antonio Cromartie can handle the load of being the main guy.
Johnson did acknowledge on Tuesday that fans should “be patient and have trust we’re doing the best thing for your team.” But on the other hand, he wants fans to know that there will be excitement in East Rutherford this coming season.
Newest Jets Sheldon Richardson and Dee Milliner aren’t sweating the pressure of playing in New York.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the Jets and offensive lineman D’Brickashaw Ferguson are set to restructure his deal, saving the Jets $5.128 million in cap space.
Don’t let the defensive picks from Thursday night change your understanding of the reality. If Ryan truly yielded power in that war room, the offense would be trotting out new weapons on Friday.
Dee Milliner. Doesn’t sound like Darrelle Revis, does it? Lacks a certain ring and, right now, a certain set of credentials.
The New York Jets are loading up on defense by taking Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson with the 13th overall pick in the NFL draft.
The Jets selected Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner at number 9 overall in the NFL Draft.
When asked if he could replace Revis for New York, former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu confidently told reporters, “I feel like I’m the guy to do it.”
The draft’s top corner brushed off concerns about his health Wednesday, and said he’d “feel fine” replacing Darrelle Revis in New York.
Will the Jets consider a quarterback such as West Virginia’s Geno Smith or Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib so high in the first round? Or with an eye on the future, might they consider Mike Glennon or Florida State’s EJ Manuel in the second round?
“It is hard to be a fan of the New York Jets,” Martin wrote. “They have hardly done anything right since Joe Willie Namath won Super Bowl III, and every time you think maybe they are finally turning the corner, they find some new way to screw things up.”
“I definitely feel like I haven’t gotten the truth,” Revis said. “Anyone can sit there and tell you to your face, ‘Yeah, you’re going to be a Jet.’ … I know it’s a lie.”
“Not (head coach) Rex (Ryan), not (general manager John) Idzik, not (owner Woody) Johnson, nobody contacted me,” Revis said. “They left me out of the loop, I guess you can say.”
Without saying it, the Jets said it. They don’t plan to contend for years. And it will take a lot more than Tampa Bay’s first-round pick to fix it. And now, by the way, you also have a gaping hole at cornerback.
