Mark Sanchez Says He Doesn’t Plan on Losing His Starting Job

Joe Namath Blasts Jets’ ‘Deceptive’ Practice of Saying Team is Better Than it Actually Is

While the New York Jets have had enough problems in recent seasons, on top of it all, one of the team’s most famous alumni just won’t stop criticizing New York.

New York Jets Sign WR Ben Obomanu

After going on injured reserve late in 2012 Ben Obomanu probably knew his time in Seattle would be coming to an end. It was mostly due to the fact his salary for 2013 was 2.3 million dollars. But Obomanu has been productive as a receiver, catching 67 passes from 2010-11, and should serve as immediate depth for a WR corp lacking quality options. Obomanu can also play special teams...
