The New York Democrat will be at Syracuse University Monday afternoon to call on the NFL team to return this summer to SUNY Cortland, 30 miles south of Syracuse.
Officials in the central New York community that has hosted the New York Jets’ training camp hope the franchise’s turmoil doesn’t have a costly ripple effect.
Willie Colon sees a big difference in the New York Jets from this time last year. There’s an unmistakable sense of camaraderie — the type three weeks of bonding during training camp can bring.
The Jets might soon leave Cortland and return to Long Island for training camp. One possible destination? Farmingdale State College.
Don’t get me wrong. This is not meant to be negative toward Cortland. But being away is no longer in the best interests of the franchise or its fans.
For a first Cortland practice, Smith certainly performed like a guy intent on retaining his starting job. “I think Geno looked better than I’ve ever seen him,” WR David Nelson raved.
You’ve heard it all before: Rex Ryan is fired up about his Jets. But on Thursday the head coach was really fired up.
Nobody is expecting the return of CJ2K. Even if he shows a mild improvement this season, Johnson should provide a boost to a team that had some wacky rushing stats in 2013.
Rex Ryan says it’s time for the New York Jets to improve as a team as they prepare for the start of training camp practices.
“I love the fact that we are going back to Cortland,” head coach Rex Ryan said in a statement. “Everyone knows how I feel about going away. I think it is a big part of building our team camaraderie.”
Those who want SUNY Cortland to ban Michael Vick are wasting their time, the school said Thursday.
There are some people who just won’t let Michael Vick’s past go. A little more than 1,600 of them according to the most recent count.
Holmes has been cleared by team doctors to practice and has passed his physical.
“Nothing has been determined yet whether Geno will play in this game or not,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said Thursday. “Let’s make sure we’re clear on that.”
Holmes isn’t likely to say he can run until he is doing sprinting T-drills, cutting and running the distance of the field at full speed. In other words, when he can do what he used to do.
