Rex Ryan may be $75,000 lighter in the wallet. But ask him about his floundering team’s future, and he’s all rainbows and lollipops.
The jokes aren’t flying from Rex Ryan as they did in his first two seasons. Suddenly, the NFL’s biggest bunch of chatterboxes is strangely silent.
The finger-pointing has started. The losses are mounting. The offense continues to struggle — and the guarantees have stopped. What’s next for the Jets?
Under normal conditions, the Jets would be sky high after their 32-3 win over the Jaguars, but they are holding their collective breaths and crossing their fingers about the status of Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold.
New York Jets linebacker David Harris, wide receiver Santonio Holmes and safety Eric Smith are all listed as questionable with injuries for the team’s game against Jacksonville on Sunday.
This is what we have waited for. It was something that we thought might not happen because of the lockout. Are you ready for some… preseason football?
Brodney Pool is back in the Jets’ secondary. According to multiple reports, the Jets agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the veteran safety on Wednesday.
Holmes was considered the Jets’ top priority, and the team agreed to terms with him on a deal worth almost $50 million on Wednesday.
Smith, also a hard-hitting special teams player, has been with the Jets since they drafted him in the third round out of Michigan State in 2006. The signing comes after New York lost out Friday night to the Philadelphia Eagles in its pursuit of free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
Here we go. Football is back — with a vengeance. There are about 1,000 veterans, draft picks and undrafted rookies that need to be signed by the Jets, Giants and 30 other NFL clubs.
Jets running back Shonn Greene told WFAN on June 16 that “38 or 39″ players participated in Mark Sanchez’s player-run workouts at Fairleigh Dickinson University earlier this month. But one Jets free agent wasn’t among them.
Safety Eric Smith will miss the New York Jets’ game at Pittsburgh on Sunday while recovering from a concussion.
The Jets found a way to win despite losing Darrelle Revis for the whole second half with an injured hamstring, Nick Mangold for a series with a shoulder injury, and Jason Taylor for a few plays with an injured elbow.
He says the ankle “feels a lot better,” but whether he plays is “up to the coaches.” Coach Rex Ryan says Pool has been a quick healer, but the team also doesn’t want to risk further injury.
The Jets officially kicked off Training Camp 2010 with a pair of practices on Monday. However, the Darrelle Revis situation continues to take center stage.
