Chaz Schilens was offended by cornerback Antonio Cromartie's recent comments that he thinks he's the New York Jets' second-best wide receiver, calling it a ''slight'' to the players at his position.
Cromartie, who could play some at receiver this season, was asked on ''ESPN First Take'' on Tuesday where he thinks he'd rank on the depth chart. He said he'd be behind only Santonio Holmes - putting him ahead of every other receiver, including Schilens, who signed as a free agent in March.
Schilens says Wednesday they'll ''address it on the football field.'' Meanwhile, coach Rex Ryan says ''I'm on top of it, and it will not be a problem,'' trying to defuse the first sign of tension in the locker room - something that derailed the team last season.

Outside of new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, nobody really knows what the Jets are planning to do with their offense this season. At this point it wouldn’t shock me if that includes Rex Ryan, who we all know is a defensive-minded coach. Tim Tebow is likely going to be used in a number of situations including the red zone and on special teams, but he may not be the only player...
When Antonio Cromartie proclaimed himself as the second-best wide receiver on the New York Jets, you didn’t think it was going to go away without being blown out of proportion, did you? Antonio Cromartie is obviously very confident in his own athletic ability, and rightfully so. His words have made the rounds and one Jets wide receiver, Chaz Schilens, had a response ready...

It didn’t take long for the New York Jets to undergo some turmoil, as they appear to be a team who just can’t seem to stay out of trouble every time they open their mouths. The best thing about the Jets’ controversy is that it is always someone new.
That is what makes it ever so interesting.
In the past, head coach Rex Ryan has spoken out about – well, everything – and...
With bush league bickering between cornerback Antonio Cromartie and 26-year-old wide receiver Chaz Schilens, it is evident the New York Jets banged the pooch by not letting Braylon Edwards return for a sequel this autumn in the swamps of Jersey. … Continue reading →
