Kellen Winslow Jr. has gone from facing life without football just a few months ago to being a key to the New York Jets' offense.
The former Pro Bowl tight end had a terrific debut with the Jets on Sunday, catching a team-leading seven passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in the 18-17 win over Tampa Bay while also serving as a dependable option for rookie quarterback Geno Smith.
Winslow played in just one game last year - one catch for New England - after being a late-summer cut by Seattle. The Jets gave him a tryout in May, signed him a few days later and he could end up being one of the smartest signings of the season - as long as he can stay healthy.

A few extra thoughts on the New York Jets week one win after sleeping on it, re-watching the game and watching highlights of Geno Smith being pushed out of bounds 200 times. Look at that bench celebration, just terrific!
1. Stephen Hill was impressive in the short and intermediate passing game, displaying good hands and toughness. He has also become a contributor in the running...
The New York Jets brought veteran journeyman quarterback Brady Quinn in as an insurance policy after Mark Sanchez and rookie Geno Smith went down with respective injuries. The team released Quinn last week in a financial move. If Quinn had been on the roster for Sunday’s game, his entire salary for the 2013 season would have been guaranteed. In a move that was not unexpected, Brady...

Bart Scott and Darrelle Revis are no longer in the New York locker room and Rex Ryan isn't boasting much anymore. Still, that doesn't mean a Jets player won't give out guarantees and trash talk their opponents.
The Jets have some pretty terrible expectations this year. They've got virtually nobody on offense except rookie Geno Smith. They lost their best player in...
ESPN is reporting that Mark Sanchez’s 2013 is effectively kaput after suffering a labral tear in his shoulder.
Sanchez got hurt in the Jets’ preseason game against their in-state rival, the Giants. It has been an absolutely bizarre last 24 months for Sanchez, who went from the guy leading the Jets to AFC Championship Games to a media-induce, buttfumbling sideshow.
The Geno Smith...

Geno Smith picked a great time on Sunday to play sound football for the New York Jets, and with the help of a perfectly timed late hit, it was just enough to propel the Jets to a narrow victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With one win in his pocket, is it possible that Geno Smith will lead the Jets to a respectable record in 2013?
Well, the short and simple answer to my own...
Jets tight end Kellen Winslow was limited in participation in Wednesday's practice.Fantasy Spin:Given hius injury history, that's to be expected. Winslow had 79 yards and a touchdown on seven catches Sunday against the Bills. He should see consistent targets from Smith and is a decent option in two-TE leagues.
Willie Colon is only in his first season with the Jets after six years in Pittsburgh, but he appears to have his new team’s rivalry with the Patriots down pat.
Just minutes after Colon and the Jets had polished off an 18-17 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday, the offensive guard was asked about this Thursday’s game in New England. Colon, a Bronx native, left no doubt about his...
Dee Milliner is no stranger to playing in big games having played in two National Championship games while at Alabama before the New York Jets drafted him in April. In front of almost 77,000 screaming fans at MetLife Stadium, it was no surprise that Milliner's nerves were running high. The Jets' rookie cornerback had a very solid performance in his pro debut.
New York Jets, wide receiver, Santonio Holmes, played 45 snaps on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and caught one ball for 13 yards. As Curtis Crabtree of NBCSports reports, Holmes, who played in his first game since suffering a Lisfranc injury, feels he could have played more.As I wrote in my previous articles on Holmes, I cannot figure this cat out. Holmes spent the...
Sometimes reality isn’t quite what it seems, and sometimes you’re the Jets.
The New York Jets were viewed as something of a circus last season and that perception seemed to follow them into 2013. Rex Ryan as quick to dispute that notion on Tuesday.
After a Week 1 win against the Buccaneers, Ryan and the Jets have a short week ahead of their Thursday night showdown with the Patriots...
