A former 1st round pick, Dustin Keller is heading into the final year of his 5 year rookie deal and will make 3.0525 million. According to ESPN New York, Keller and the Jets are not in talks about a long term deal.

Stephen Hill will be doing work as a rookie, mark my words.
First off, forgive me for not posting in awhile. I’ve had Lyme’s Disease, which comes along with pretty severe brain fog, which comes along with some bad writers’ block.

With organized team activities having begun this week across the NFL, the Tim Tebow watch is officially underway in New York. While it would take a training camp miracle for Tebow to earn the starting quarterback job over Mark Sanchez, he’s a hard worker who has made that his goal. On Thursday, reports from Jets camp were that Sanchez looked extremely sharp while Tebow missed a...

The New York Jets opened up OTAs to the media for the first time today, and the media responded in a hilariously idiotic way. And yes, they still want you to believe that...
