Sure, the Jets have a handful of new faces. And, yes, there are a couple of injuries to deal with. But none of that is keeping Ryan from issuing a bold prediction: The Jets will rank among the top five defenses in the NFL this season.
The many storylines around the Jets have fallen by the wayside as the quarterback battle has gained steam. But one narrative should not be ignored: Rex Ryan vs. John Idzik.
Rex Ryan and Marty Mornhinweg announced Tuesday that Sanchez would get the nod over Smith because he’s the incumbent, and Mornhinweg added that Sanchez “earned it.”
At 30 years old, Winslow believes he still has plenty of football left in him. That’s why he is setting his sights high for the Jets — despite having played just one regular-season game since 2011.
The former Alabama star did some positional and one-on-one drills Wednesday, but did not participate in 11-on-11 team drills.
At the beginning of camp, we dissected the offense under new coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Now, we take a look at defense and special teams.
Despite missing the first few days of camp and not being able to practice since becoming a member of the Jets, Milliner doesn’t feel he’ll have much catching up to do.
“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.”
After a short holdout, Dee Milliner can focus on becoming the Jets’ next shutdown cornerback.
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.
