PLAYERS: Geno Smith
TEAMS: New York Jets
According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, Roc Nation Sports agent Kim Miale has been barred from negotiating Geno Smith’s rookie contract as the NFLPA investigates whether Roc Nation violated the “runner rule.” Also in that entry: Kim Miale has not been barred from negotiating Geno Smith's contract for now, which jibes w/ what Idzik said. — Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) June 18, 2013 Miale is scheduled to meet with the NFLPA on Wednesday. Kim Miale, the agent who represents New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith on behalf of Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, will meet with members of the NFL Players Association on Wednesday to discuss her recruiting of Smith and whether she violated the NFLPA’s “runner rule” in doing so, a person informed of the meeting told USA TODAY Sports. The “runner rule” is described below. The NFLPA’s “runner rule” states that only certified agents can recruit players. Jay-Z, who was pictured in an Instagram photo sitting alongside Smith before the second-round pick signed with Roc Nation, is not certified and has not applied for certification. Miale, who has not responded to repeated requests for comment from USA TODAY Sports over the past few months, represents only two other clients registered with the NFLPA. Both of those players (kicker Carlos Martinez, now with the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League, and former University of Florida linebacker Brandon Hicks) are inactive. Need NFL Tickets?

82-Day New York Jets Warning – Quinton Coples Unleashed

Here at Turn On The Jets, we decided to take a page out of Robert Mays book over at Grantland (a polite way of saying rip his article idea off) by counting down the 115 days until the New York Jets kick off, with a daily reason to get excited about their return. Mays has the whole NFL to work with, we only have the Goddamn Jets…now there is a challenge, step your game up Mays...

Rex Ryan lookalike catches foul ball while holding a hot dog

If you didn't know Rex Ryan was in New Jersey playing charity golf at Trump National golf course, you would swear that was the New York Jets head coach out at Progressive Field making an impressive one-handed grab of a foul ball while holding a hot dog Tuesday night. We know Rex already has a twin in brother Rob — who has hair down to his shoulders — so it couldn't...

New York Jets – A Closer Look At Tight End Kellen Winslow Jr

Despite a report from the New York Jets beat, namely Rich Cimini and his unnamed sources that questioned the signing of a former first round pick, at a position the Jets are woefully thin at…we at TOJ felt it was time to give an unbiased view of Kellen Winslow Jr. College Career Kellen WInslow Jr, the son of Hall of Fame Tight End Kellen Winslow Sr, was a member of the Miami Hurricanes...

Bleacher Report: Dee Milliner is not replacing Revis

Erik Frenz of BleacherReport.com put out a great article today, discussing why Jets CB Dee Milliner is not stepping into 'shoes to fill.'  Prehaps my favorite snippit: Whoever fills that spot has big shoes to fill: Cromartie himself set a lofty standard for that spot. As Cromartie could tell you—or, for that matter, anyone who has played the role of No. 2 cornerback...

Jets’ Santonio Holmes questionable for Week 1

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes missed most of last season due to a Lisfranc fracture, and the injury could continue to impact his 2013 campaign. Holmes told reporters recently – including ESPN New York – that his target date for return is the first day of training camp, but he added that this is likely a little overly ambitious. For this reason, and because it...

Antonio Cromartie: I Can Be, But Don’t Need To Be, The Best Corner In NFL

I know the title of this post is confusing and probably will lead to Antonio Cromartie receiving some backlash for these comments. Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is maturing, and with that he’s becoming a leader, and a team guy.  Darrelle Revis is gone, and Cromartie is the best defensive player on the team now. Cromartie for his part thinks he could be the best corner in the...

Tim Tebow Gets the Last Laugh on the New York Jets

It's been a heck of a year for young Tim Tebow. He never really got the chance to play, got passed over for the No. 3 guy after the team finally benches Mark Sanchez, and eventually gets cut. Rex Ryan and the New York Jets organization really pulled the wool over his eyes by making him--and the rest of us--believe that he was going to be a secret weapon. That's okay...

Is There A Mute Button?: The Jets Open Their Mouths... AGAIN!

I've grown up as a Jets fan. We are used to losing on field, but lately we've been losing both off and on the field. It's like there's a chronic need for the Jets to put their foot inside one's mouth.Nick Mangold spoke to Jets' reporter Bart Hubbach of the New York Post. He commented on how the Bill Belichick must be losing his mind in New England:"I...

Braylon, Brandon, and Ben: The Jets Veteran Wide Receiver Question

Image Credits: SB Nation, US Presswire, Associated Press Please join us in welcoming our newest writer, Jason Astafan (@murse13), to the OJT staff.  I would love to get a look at the paper the New York Jets Depth Chart is written on—I mean the official copy. Under wide receiver, it must look like swiss cheese with all the holes at the position. With Santonio Holmes...

Jets' wideouts need to find their hands by camp

The New York Jets' offense was an absolute disaster last season, and 2013 could be more of the same if the wide receivers don't get it together.By all accounts, including the coaches', Gang Green's wideouts had a major case of the dropsies last week, something head coach Rex Ryan clearly was discouraged with. "You're an NFL player," Ryan told the media...

Coach's Corner: Strickland on Cro's Cousin

Marcus Cromartie's surname helped him get on the radar of NFL scouts, but it won't win him a roster spot in San Diego. The cousin of the more heralded Antonio Cromartie, Marcus looks to beat the odds and stick as an UDFA. For more on Marcus and his quest, we check in with Wisconsin assistant coach Ben Strickland.
