Yeremiah Bell had his mind pretty much made up. He just needed a little reassurance about switching sides in the Dolphins-Jets rivalry. So, the hard-hitting safety called someone who knows all about going behind enemy lines from Miami to New York: Jason Taylor. ''He told me it's a great organization to come to and that everyone welcomes you with open arms,'' Bell said a week after signing with the Jets. ''He enjoyed his time here. There wasn't anything negative.'' Taylor signed with the Jets in 2010 after spending 12 of his first 13 seasons with the Dolphins - and having a mostly contentious relationship with New York fans during that time. He had a solid season with the Jets, getting five sacks and cheers from the fans who once booed him, before heading back to the Dolphins for a final season.

New York Jets Fact Or False: Run Game Edition

The upcoming season – What I’M looking forward to.

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. Now, onto the topic. While many Jets fans tend to be pretty pessimistic (especially the older ones), I pride myself as being somewhat of an...

Mark Sanchez’s agent Brian Murphy takes a shot at Tim Tebow

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...

Will Tim Tebow and LoLo Jones Succumb to Pressure to Date?

Tim Tebow is a second string NFL quarterback for the New York Jets who is best suited as a special teams player who makes occasional wildcat appearances under center.

Aside from both being considered wildly popular in their respective sports, the...

Jets' Scott: No football for my son

New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott says he will do everything he can to stop his son from playing football because of the concussion issue that has engulfed the sport.
