According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie says that head coach Rex Ryan plans on using him as a wide receiver this season.

“They’re trying to make up a ‘Cro Package,’”said Cromartie. “So I’ll see what goes in there.”

“I believe I can do it,” he went on. “You got to pick your spots. You got to figure out what routes I can run, what routes I can’t run. That’s what we’re going to do.”

The Jets are clearly desperate for a spark on offense.  The only legit receiver they currently have is Santonio Holmes.  Aside from him, they don’t have any threats that can help quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Tim Tebow's first public practice for the Jets didn't go so well.  It was so bad that several fans got in some verbal jabs on the backup QB.

Jets may use Cromartie at WR

The New York Jets are always trying something new. Whether it’s using a guy like Tim Tebow in special packages, or using the Former Jet Brad Smith in a variety of ways, they have a trick to doing things. A big topic of Jets football thusfar has been lack of depth at RB and WR. They haven’t focused too much on bringing in players at either position, but today Jets coach Rex Ryan...

New York Jets training camp starts on a high note

New York Jets players reported for training camp yesterday, marking the official start of training camp at SUNY Cortland. The most important sighting was Darrelle Revis. It was reported last week that he would show up on time and he did, which makes Jets training camp a much happier place right now.

Reporter calls Jets QB Mark Sanchez, "Tim" (Video)

It appears that one reporter had Tim Tebow on the brain during a New York Jets Q&A session at the New York Jets training camp. Watch as she calls Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez, "Tim": It's nice that Mark laughed it off since I'm pretty sure that he is seething inside from that.

Jets’ Revis misses practice with tight hamstring

Whenever news regarding Darrelle Revis pops up, it’s automatically assumed to be contract-related. That was not the case on Sunday — or so he says. Per the NY Daily News, the Jets’ All-Pro cornerback sat out part of today’s full-contact practice with what he described as “a little tightness” in his right hamstring. Revis, who admitted he was “close” to holding out...

Reporter Calls Jets QB Mark Sanchez "Tim"

The Jets started camp and one of the biggest questions leading into the upcoming season is, Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow? I think this reporter may have made up her mind. Freudian slip, I think. Sanchez handled it well, but is probably seething inside. Tebow is America's Sweetheart and Sanchez is the underachiever that New York is less than thrilled with. If you ask me, its...

2012 New York Jets: Best and Worst Case Scenarios

Considering all the media attention the Jets garner, one would think they were the team from New York that just won the Super Bowl last year.   However, this is New York and the city that never sleeps always loves a juicy story to pounce on.

Is Belichick a top defensive coach?

He isn't according to Jets DB and I don't mean defensive back, Antonio Cromartie.  Cromartie was asked if he agreed with Rex Ryan's assertion that he, Rex, was the best defensive coach in the game, better than Bill Belichick and the Steelers' Dick LeBeau. Cromartie told Newsday: "I mean, it's him and Dick LeBeau. Rex is first on the list and LeBeau'...

Nacho Takes Media Tebow Trolling In Stride

A reporter at Jets camp referred to Mark Sanchez as “Tim” during a Q&A session, which is either inexcusably stupid or inspired trolling.
