Jets GM John Idzik addressed the media after practice Saturday for the first time since minicamp last month, tackling several issues surrounding training camp.
The Jets’ first-round draft pick, cornerback Dee Milliner, did not show up to camp on Thursday and is holding out over his rookie contract.
Darrelle Revis is long gone. So is Tim Tebow. And so are several other players from last year’s dismal Jets team. It’s time to start fresh at Camp Cortland.
Edwards took a physical with the team Wednesday, and will help add depth to a receiving corps that lacks experience.
The New York Jets have signed quarterback Geno Smith, their second-round draft pick, to a four-year contract that is worth about $5 million.
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.
Richardson could compete with Kenrick Ellis, to be the Jets’ starting nose tackle.
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.
Geno Smith is ready to work and confident he’ll become the Jets’ franchise quarterback.
The future is now. Geno Smith is a New York Jet and could compete with Mark Sanchez right away.
Newest Jets Sheldon Richardson and Dee Milliner aren’t sweating the pressure of playing in New York.
The Jets wear a splintered crown. They lost Revis because the owner wanted him gone. They have Rex Ryan because the owner wants him. And perhaps they spent the first two picks on defense — surprise! — because Ryan wanted them.
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.
New York still has some major needs on offense after going after two defensive players on the opening day of the draft, which runs through Saturday.
Dee Milliner. Doesn’t sound like Darrelle Revis, does it? Lacks a certain ring and, right now, a certain set of credentials.
