Darrelle Revis is long gone. So is Tim Tebow. And so are several other players from last year’s dismal Jets team. It’s time to start fresh at Camp Cortland.
The 33-year-old Garay is one of the newest, most-experienced — and, perhaps, most fun-loving — members of the Jets’ revamped and close-knit defensive line.
The free-agent running back, who wasn’t expected to re-sign with the Jets, will join Chris Johnson in Tennessee’s backfield.
Shortly after Gang Green released nose tackle Sione Po’uha, free-agent defensive tackle Mike DeVito signed a three-year deal with the Chiefs, according to multiple reports.
Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes has agreed to restructure his contract and will remain with Gang Green for the 2013 campaign, according to a report.
Darrelle Revis is moving closer to getting back on the football field. Whether that’s with the New York Jets next season remains to be seen.
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.
Tim Tebow was two wins from the Super Bowl a year ago. Now, he’s pretty much a player without a team — likely to be released by the Jets after one frustrating season.
Gang Green are beginning to interview GM candidates to find Mike Tannenbaum’s replacement.
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel for Tim and how it went down,” Jets defensive end Mike DeVito told WFAN co-hosts Evan Roberts and Joe Benigno. “… I think (if) you put Tim in there, I think we win games. I really believe that.”
“The locker room is so confident, guys are so confident,” DeVito said. “I have no doubt that we can win these three games, and then we’ll see wherever the chips fall.”
Ryan’s swagger made for plenty of headlines during his first three seasons in New York. Now, it’s what the coach doesn’t say that raises some eyebrows.
“It’s shocking to see him on TV, to see his face on pictures, on newspapers,” DeVito told WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts. “It’s totally shocking and it’s disappointing, and I’ve been praying like crazy for both families.”
Regardless of what Rex Ryan decides, whether it’s Sanchez, Tebow or McElroy, Mike DeVito doesn’t believe it will affect the players negatively.
