Florham Park, NJ - It's just after the third and final day of minicamp and the New York Jets locker room feels like a high school hallway on the last day of class. Most players quickly shower and hit the road, no doubt ready to start their pre-training camp break. That is, except for defensive end Quinton Coples and rookie defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson who keep the energy high, bouncing around and joking with teammates."You guys were great,' Coples quips to a group of reporters.

Rex Ryan: ‘I’m a hell of a lot better football coach than I’m given credit for’

Rex Ryan isn’t quite ready to go back to making bold claims about what his team is going to do in the upcoming year, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t the same old blowhard we are all used to.

New York Jets Minicamp: Kellen Winslow Jr Likely to Sign, Mike Sims-Walker not as Impressive

It looks like the New York Jets will go 1-for-2 on their high-profile tryouts at minicamp this week.

Rex Ryan: I'm better than people give me credit for

Rex Ryan knows he's living on borrowed time this season.  It's either an extended run into the playoffs or the unemployment line for the head coach of the New York Jets.

New York Jets – Demario Davis Has “It”

Demario Davis’ career as a New York Jet began with a staggering comparison and 36 tackles. When the Jets called his name with pick number 77 in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Jet fans were left wondering who the linebacker was.
