Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
San Diego Chargers
Kansas City Chiefs
Despite not making any big splashes in the first week of free agency, New York Jets General Manager, John Idzik, has been seeking low cost, low risk veterans with versatility and potential upside. So far, Idzik has signed RB Mike Goodson, Guard Willie Colon, Defensive Tackle Antonio Garay, and most recently Outside Linebacker Antwan Barnes.
While Goodson, Colon, and Barnes each have a high chance of earning a starting job when the Jets meet in Cortland for training camp this summer, Garay will more likely be asked to serve as a backup in the defensive line rotation, with Quinton Coples, Muhammad Wilkerson, and Kenrick Ellis poised to be the starters on the defensive front.
Garay, however, should not be viewed as nothing more than a backup. While the role he will serve will technically be deemed “backup,” Garay has the potential and versatility to be a vital part of what could be an excellent defensive line rotation.

I hope you're sitting down for this, but Darrelle Revis is still in the news. Rex Ryan spoke to the New York Post today and was quoted as saying, “I know for a fact that we’re not actively trying to trade Darrelle Revis." I love that he went with the full-name to show how serious he is...
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Jets’ owner Woody Johnson was asked if he can build his team around cornerback Darrelle Revis.
“No,” said Johnson. “I think you need to look at the entire 53 (man roster). To build a team, if you don’t look at the whole 53, you’re not going to make it. It starts with the quarterback. You got to get your quarterback...

The Buccaneers appear to be inching closer to a deal with the New York Jets for cornerback Darrelle Revis. Some reports already have the Bucs penciled in as having a deal in place to offer Revis which seems logical. Many have even suggested that Revis is aware of this said deal. However, with the league’s anti-tampering rules, it can not be the Bucs front office that reaches out...
The Super Bowl has traditionally been held in a city with warm weather, or at least been played in a dome when it’s been in a cold city. But that’s about to change next year when the Super Bowl will be played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey — an outdoor stadium which serves as the home field for the New York Jets and Giants.

My New York Jets have become the butt of many jokes recently, and rightfully so. Things got so bad this season that Fireman Ed, their unofficial cheerleader, stepped down. The season culminated with the the firing of General Manager Mike Tannebaum, the...

If Dennis Rodman can hang out with Kim Jong Un in North Korea while watching a basketball game then Tim Tebow can play in the Arena League. Come on! Crazier things have happened, right?
Apparently the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League have offered the beleaguered quarterback a job should he become available and can't find any suitors in the...
A professional football team has shown interest in Tim Tebow. Unfortunately, it’s the Arena Football League’s Orlando Predators. If only trades were allowed between NFL and AFL teams.
The Predators’ owner, Brett Bouchy, knows Tebow won’t want to turn to the AFL until he’s used up all his options in the NFL, but he said Orlando would welcome the former Gator with open arms...
