This is shaping up to be quite a weekend for Gang Green. The highlight of Friday’s practice was when Mark Sanchez threw a “game-winning” touchdown to Patrick Turner, after the defense dominated almost all of the workout.
The former Pro Bowl safety practiced with the New York Jets for the first time since signing with them in March. He is coming off injuries to his Achilles and heel
“It’s our job as a team to find it here,” Sanchez said of Cortland. “This is the best place for us to shut the doors, focus on us, focus on football and really start something special.”
New York Jets safety LaRon Landry has been activated from the physically unable to perform list after passing his physical, and has been cleared to practice when the team opens training camp on Friday.
From Rex Ryan to Tim Tebow, the entire New York Jets organization is getting prepared and excited for next season.
Jim Leonhard, the starting safety the last three seasons, will not re-join the team after tearing his right patellar tendon and having major knee surgery.
New York Jets safety LaRon Landry is “ahead of schedule” in his rehabilitation from Achilles and heel injuries, and hopes to be healthy for the start of training camp next month.
The Jets have issues. No one is denying that fact. But somewhere along the line many people stopped judging them based on football decision and execution. They’ve already doomed the 2012 season. You all need to chill.
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.
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.
Rex Ryan declared his confidence in the Jets’ draft selections and called Gang Green’s strength in depth “unusual.”
The Jets selected safety Josh Bush from Wake Forrest in the sixth round to add to their safety depth.
For the moment, the Jets have the 16th pick in the draft. Based on prior history, there’s a pretty good chance they will trade out of that selection, most likely up.
The Jets may not wait until this week’s NFL draft to fill the holes in their secondary.
