The New York Jets are headed in a completely different direction than the New England Patriots in the AFC East, and that needs to change on Thursday night. In a must-win game, the Jets are a little beat-up, but the injury report consists of a lot of names that will play through the pain.
The New York Jets and nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed have agreed to terms on a contract, reuniting coach Rex Ryan with one of his favorite players.
“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.”
Dawan Landry, the older of the two brothers, was cut by the Jaguars prior to the start of free agency. The former fifth-round pick played in all 16 games for the Jags in 2012, accumulating 100 tackles and an interception.
Rex Ryan may want to make this an issue about how real men stand up and don’t hide behind anonymous quotes. But he’s missing the point.
Jets’ safety Eric Smith will miss the rest of the preseason due to an MCL injury.
Some guys you just hate to say goodbye to. Leonhard is one of them.
Defensive back Yeremiah Bell signed a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the Jets on Friday, according to sources. The 34-year-old veteran will receive $1.3 million guaranteed, in addition to a $200,000 signing bonus and a $100,000 workout bonus.
New York was good to Phil Simms. Now his son will try and make his mark on the Big Apple.
Rex Ryan is hoping speed — the missing ingredient to his squad’s aggressive, physical style — may just help him sack New England and Bill Belichick’s stranglehold on the division.
Here we are, just a handful of days removed from the goings on at Radio City Music Hall. Already it’s been determined by people supposedly in the know that the Jets didn’t draft that well. Nonsense.
Rex Ryan declared his confidence in the Jets’ draft selections and called Gang Green’s strength in depth “unusual.”
