Jamaal Westerman has really begun to make a difference on and off the football field. The former Rutgers star and current New York Jets linebacker continues to work hard and is finally seeing it pay off.
His first two years in the NFL mostly saw Westerman used on special teams and rare times on defense. Now in his third NFL season, Westerman has taken on a more involved role with the Jets. He has used his experience as a defensive end at Rutgers and brought that to his role as linebacker with the Jets. New York has been using Westerman as some what of a pass rushing specialist.

The most obvious beneficiary of the decision to trade Derrick Mason is rookie receiver Jeremy Kerley.

I wouldn’t say surprised. He’s going to a beautiful situation. The situation he’s going into he can’t really be too upset going there. He’s going to a place where they’re going to feature him. He’s going to get the ball and he’s going to do very well.
On where Mason’s absence leaves the receiving corps…

His team is on a three-game losing streak, but that isn't enough to quiet Rex Ryan - or give him any second thoughts about guaranteeing that his New York Jets will win the Super Bowl this season. "I can guarantee that we're going to chase it, that's for sure," Ryan said Thursday as his Jets prepared to face the Dolphins Monday night at MetLife Stadium . Then...
I am sure Strahan has been drinking this afternoon.
The last thing that Jets need is Tiki and his intern strolling into the locker room. Plus, I think his skills are gone, you just don’t walk away from the NFL for three years and come back into the league balling like Adrian Peterson.
Here is what Strahan had to say on his twitter.
Remember this motto.

SI.com’s NFL writer Damon Hack talks about the Jets and has some thought-provoking things to say about the team. Most interesting to me? Hack notes that there might be concerns that Ryan’s style of coaching might cause him to age in “dog years.”
