According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Jets head coach doesn’t plan on re-signing safety Jim Leonhard.
With the additions of LaRon Landry and Yeremiah Bell this offseason, it wouldn’t make sense for the Jets to bring Leonhard back, unless someone suffers a serious injury.
“I’m a free agent right now, hopefully in the next few weeks I get some workouts and get a contract,” said Leonard in an interview with WEAU, per the Post. “The knee is feeling great and I am ready to go. I am getting antsy, football is right around the corner and I don’t have a team, kind of getting antsy ready to get back on that field. You just keep working, you keep grinding and good things are going to happen.
“I know I am going to be playing football somewhere this season, I just have to figure out where. I am excited for that day.”

Normally talkative New York Jets coach Rex Ryan is now ready to chat about his weight-loss surgery.
Once weighing 348 pounds, Ryan wanted to wait until he lost at least 100 of that. More than two years after having the Lap-Band procedure, Ryan is down to about 243 pounds.
Ryan said Thursday the device forces him to practice portion control. He still eats Mexican food, but where...
You'll be seeing a lot less of Rex Ryan this season. The Jets' coach hasn't been one to shy away from blabbering for the microphone, but he's down in the blubber department. Ryan, like his brother and Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, underwent lap-band surgery two years ago. He said Thursday he's ready to enter a new weight class, having dropped a total...
Rex Ryan— the larger than life and bigger than an offensive tackle NFL personality— taped a television talk show Thursday and showed off the new slimmer version of himself.
After dropping over 100 pounds and sporting a new hairstyle, the New York Jets head coach taped an interview with CBS-NY's "The Couch" (to be broadcast Friday) and looked like he stepped off...
According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, team insiders have told him that the Jets plan on replacing quarterback Mark Sanchez in the red zone with Tim Tebow in order to help their running game have more success.
I understand what the Jets are doing, but they’re opening themselves up for a mid-season quarterback controversy if and when Tebow looks better running the offense.

“One day you have a fight the next day you make up,” Holmes said.
He also took some time...
Santonio Holmes is entering his third season with the Jets, but apparently he is still somewhat unfamiliar with the way things work in New York. The media are not your friend. Writers and reporters may try to build close relationships with the players so they can get quotes for their stories and successfully do their jobs, but they are just as happy with a locker room that is in...
Jets receiver Santonio Holmes knows all about getting bad press. Mainly because he has a penchant for doing things that causes the media to write negative things about him.
For example, remember just last season when he supposedly quit on the Jets in the final two minutes of their season-ending game? Holmes apparently even got into a shouting match with teammate Wayne Hunter during...
We are kicking around new features on TVF, and this may be one of the ones that sticks, or not. Tim Tebow of the New York Jets is currently the 2nd greatest backup QB in the NFL, squarely sitting behind the first in Mark Sanchez. Ideas about how Tebow might be used have been volleyed [...]
