He’s still not much of a quarterback. But Sunday wasn’t all Geno Smith’s fault. Lay this one on a defense that couldn’t keep the heat on Peyton Manning — and paid the price.
The wish list for the Jets’ offense was simple, yet ambitious. Playmakers — real difference makers — were needed, and general manager John Idzik went shopping during the offseason.
A few days after Rex Ryan said Jace Amaro could benefit from watching tape of Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Ditka, the Jets’ rookie tight end basically dissed his head coach to the NY Post.
Marty Mornhinweg might be the not-so-secret key to the New York Jets’ success this season. Yep, even more than Geno Smith. Or, Michael Vick. Even Eric Decker, Chris Johnson and the offensive line.
Jace Amaro trudged his way from the field after a particularly rough practice and was met along the way by John Idzik. The New York Jets general manager gave the rookie tight end what amounted to a brief pep talk and then patted him on the back.
New York Jets rookie safety Calvin Pryor sat out practice while he recovers from a concussion, although coach Rex Ryan says the first-round pick is “making strides.”
Safety Calvin Pryor was diagnosed with a concussion Sunday, and tight end Jace Amaro was sidelined in the middle of practice at training camp after tweaking his right knee.
Jace Amaro believes what you ultimately become is based on how hard you prepare. The Jets’ rookie tight end plans on becoming quite a bit in the NFL.
These days, tight end is an offensive position. So is it any wonder that the Jets’ second-round draft pick, Jace Amaro, is being handed a bushel full of expectations?
Eight down, four to go. The Jets aren’t wasting any time locking up their draft picks, officially signing six more over the past two days to four-year deals.
Whether any of these guys pan out is for the future. For now, needs were met, expectations were raised. While history was made in St. Louis, the Giants and Jets found plenty of potential.
The New York Jets needed depth at tight end and wide receiver in the NFL draft. Jace Amaro gives them a little of both.
