Memo to Jets fans: I can do what I want, and not taking part in OTAs will not affect my performance on the field.
It is just OTAs, but New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan sent the wrong message on Thursday when he took his team bowling instead of onto the field.
Giants linebacker Jon Beason limped off the field on Thursday and had to be carted back to the locker room during OTAs.
“The contract definitely wasn’t an issue, man,” Nicks told Boomer & Carton. “As far as speaking about the past, I really don’t bring it up. I just decided that I had to take care of some things that I needed to take care of.”
Mark Sanchez or Geno Smith? Rex Ryan is in no rush to decide.
“It is going to be something that is very unique to me and very unique to what I like, and like to do,” the 26-year-old told the newspaper. “We are still fielding some requests, so we will see how it goes.”
If you thought the boo-birds were merciless last season, when Sanchez’s 26 turnovers led the league, wait till he works with this group. On the other hand, why wait?
“Am I disappointed? No, I’m glad,” Coughlin told reporters in a sarcastic tone. “Certainly I am (disappointed). At one point Hakeem told me he was going to be here, and then he was not here.”
Goodson pleaded not guilty to drug and weapons charges Wednesday at Morris County Superior Court in New Jersey.
Sanchez threw three interceptions, and Geno Smith talked about all the improvements he needs to make. Yeah, this quarterback competition sure has a long way to go.
Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith has chosen hip-hop star Jay-Z’s new sports agency to represent him.
Nicks surprised Coughlin Wednesday when he failed to show up for the team’s first voluntary workout. The coach was given no explanation.
Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is “eager and antsy” to get back on the field and compete. He may not have to wait much longer.
Hakeem Nicks broke a bone in his right foot at the team’s OTAs on May 24th, and it was reported at the time that he would be on the shelf for approximately 12 weeks. But the 2009 first-round pick of Big Blue has different ideas.
The Jets put the wraps on the OTA portion of their off-season with their 9th voluntary practice. This was the only practice of the week that was open to the media and the defense stole the show.
