The Jets beefed up their offensive line in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft by selecting Brian Winters.
Will the Jets consider a quarterback such as West Virginia’s Geno Smith or Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib so high in the first round? Or with an eye on the future, might they consider Mike Glennon or Florida State’s EJ Manuel in the second round?
Colon, a fourth-round draft pick by the Steelers in 2006, will add depth to the Jets’ offensive line and could potentially fill one of the guard spots, as Brandon Moore and Matt Slauson are free agents.
“I can understand if you’re 180 pounds and trying to block a 300-pound guy, and you know you have no chance,” Cushing said. “But I’m not looking, we’re behind the ball, and it’s low. And (Slauson) specifically, with a purpose, went for the knee.”
The New York Jets released veteran linebackers Bart Scott and Calvin Pace and three other players, clearing about $31 million in salary cap space.
John Idzik will try to turn things around for the troubled New York Jets. Woody Johnson believes he’s up to the massive task.
Jets’ offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo is unhappy about Rex Ryan’s handling of the left guard position.
Rex Ryan has no bold message for Bill Belichick and the Patriots this week. Nope, no fightin’ words this time around.
“We’re not buying all this spin that is coming out right now,” the player said. “And we’re not necessarily buying that the quote came out recently or even from this locker room.”
You watched the Jets stumble and bumble for nine games and you just wondered when it had to start — the backbiting, the anonymous grumbles from within. It happens with all losers.
“I can control my attitude, my effort and my work ethic,” said Tebow. “Those are things that will never change based on what anybody says.”
Sure, Mark Sanchez has taken his fair share of lumps. But you could argue the Tebow talk has been just as bad, if not worse — and now it’s coming straight from the Jets’ locker room.
Forget all the scaredy-cat talk. Another AFC East opponent awaits — the Miami Dolphins, rested off the bye week.
Ryan insisted on Monday that the Jets “go down to win,” and those who think that the team was playing “scared” in a 29-26 defeat are “ridiculous.”
There will be no dramatic Super Bowl return for Darrelle Revis. Head coach Rex Ryan said Revis will have surgery next week to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, suffered almost three weeks ago at Miami.
