Hello my fellow Jets fans -
I am not going to focus on news we already know and are kind of sick of hearing. I will state my opinion real quick. Mark Sanchez has received a contract extension. This is proof that the Jets organization has faith in Mark and believes he is their guy that will lead them to a long overdue Super Bowl win. Great.
Now that he has concrete details to discuss, Mark steps out in the public to address them. Expected. Now that he is back in the public eye, he is being criticized for everything he is saying! And not just what he is saying, but the way he says it! It’s the critique of a lifetime if you ask me, and it’s excessive.
ESPN’s Michael Kay purposely asked Mark questions which he knew were inappropriate or would rub Mark the wrong way. Given this is a part of Mr. Kay’s job, Mark accepted that and answered (or did not answer) in the appropriate manner. Colin Cowherd’s critique of Michael Kay’s interview resulted in Mark “lying to the public” becaus

After the Jets failed to sign Reggie Nelson, Antonio Cromartie tweeted that he'd be willing to change positions if it would help the team.
It is fair to be disappointed about Reggie Nelson clearly using the New York Jets to jack up the price on the Cincinnati Bengals, who he chose to re-sign with. Nelson is a rangy, athletic player who would have been an immediate upgrade at free safety. However, Nelson is a good…not great player and thus not worth despairing over for too long. It is certainly too early to feel...
After tip-toeing around the free agent waters, the Jets have finally made a splash, reinforcing an area of need with one of the better players left on the open market.Per multiple reports, the Jets signed safety LaRon Landry to a one-year, $4 million contract Monday.It’s unclear how the deal is structured, but it almost certainly includes incentives and a clause against injury...
With the Jets getting spurned by Reggie Nelson after hosting the free agent safety for a weekend long visit, it seems as though LaRon Landry is the only viable option left. But if Landry happens to politely decline an offer from the Jets as well, Mike Tannenbaum and Co. will most likely need to address this need via the draft. Many “experts” view this year’s crop of safeties...
Strong safety LaRon Landry has agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Jets believed to be worth $4M, according to Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network.
Landry hits like a Mack Truck and could fit in well in New Yorks hard-nosed defense, but was only able to secure a one-year deal with concerns regarding the stability of his troublesome Achilles. So he will have...
The New York Jets signed wide receiver Chaz Schilens and quarterback Drew Stanton to contracts.
Terms were not disclosed for Schilens, who had just 23 receptions despite playing in 15 games last season for the Oakland Raiders.
Schilens has shown promise when healthy, reeling in 72 catches for 902 yards and seven touchdowns since being drafted out of San Diego State in 2008.
LaRon Landry visited the Patriots on Saturday, and the New York Jets today. According to Scout.com he's headed for (up to) three more visits before making a decision.
At the heart of New York's chemistry issues, the rift between quarterback Mark Sanchez and wide out Santonio Holmes clearly attributed to the Jets demise in 2011.
The St. Louis Rams have a visit scheduled with New York Jets free agent tight end Matthew Mulligan, according to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star Ledger. After spending big to sign marquee free agents like Cortland Finnegan and Scott Wells, the Rams will now turn their attention to finding the role players needed to round out their roster. Mulligan is a blocking tight end. He would...

Many teams have been hesitant to sign the talented defensive back due to a history of injuries including a chronic Achilles' issue.Landry, a...

The Jets took a step closer on Saturday to filling their biggest area of need in free agency. Bengals safety Reggie Nelson finished his visit with the Jets after a productive visit with Jets officials, his agent Hadley Engelhard told the Daily News on Saturday. Nelson will now weight the Jets offer and make up his mind within 24 hours, Engelhard said. Nelson fits the profile...
A report has surfaced that sports reporter Inés Sainz who works for TV Azteca, a Mexican Television Network, was visiting the Jets locker room after practice last week. While waiting to interview Mark Sanchez the Jets players almost brought her to tears because of their immaturity. The Jets are a cocky bunch and much has
The New York Jets have reached agreement with free agent safety LaRon Landry on a one-year, $4 million contract, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. A first-round pick out of LSU by the Washington Redskins in 2007, Landry has 383 tackles, 5.5 sacks, four interceptions, six forced fumbles and 31 passes defensed during his five-year career. An instant Pro Bowler, Landry has missed 15...
