Jets’ backup nose tackle and 2011 3rd round pick Kenrick Ellis was sentenced to 90 days in jail last week for assault charges in an incident that occurred while he was still at Hampton University. After appeal, that sentence has been cut to 45 days, beginning June 15th. That puts him in position to only miss some of Training Camp and none of the preseason or regular season.
The bad news for him is that even though the incident occurred while he was still in college, ESPN New York reports that he could still face suspension from the commissioner. He could miss 4 games, but the Jets were not counting on him for much this season. He still is a candidate to be their starting nose tackle of the future when Sione Pouha, 33, is no longer capable of doing that.

Because of fears about his Achilles, Landry drew little to no interest on the open market, except from the incredibly safety needy New York Jets. However, the Jets may wish they hadn’t signed him...
For New York Jet and prolific baby daddy Antonio Cromartie, it was wedded blitz.

The NFL has taken steps to shut down the sale of T-shirts featuring the words "MY Jesus" in a design similar to the New York Jets logo, which the manufacturers admit were produced to reference quarterback Tim Tebow's strong Christian faith.
The NFL sent the company, CubbyTees.com, a cease-and-desist-letter last week, NBC Sports reported Sunday, citing sources. If the...
In a story that I’ve paid little attention to because it makes me dismissively wank with poor mechanics, New York Jets backup QB Tim Tebow and his handlers are suing two Jets fans for making a Jesus-themed Jets t-shirt. The shirt makes no reference to Tebow other than a mutual appreciation of the son of God – although on the site they admit that they were obviously inspired...
