Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
With Matt Slauson recently signing with the Chicago Bears and the impending departure of Brandon Moore, it is becoming more and more likely that New York Jets free agent signing Willie Colon will be a starter at one of the Guard spots. Colon was signed to a one year, $1.2 million dollar deal, the right price for a guy who has played only 12 games in the past 3 years.
The Steelers were willing to let Colon go due to his recent string of injuries. After starting 50 consecutive games at right tackle for the Steelers, Colon suffered an Achilles injury that sidelined him for the entire 2010 season. Upon his return to the lineup in 2011, Colon tore his tricep in week one, forcing him to miss the rest of the season. When he returned in 2012, the Steelers moved him to left guard where he started 11 games, missing 5 due to a knee injury.

According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to remain on the New York Jets’ roster through the NFL draft.
The funny thing is that the Jets are still looking for a trade partner for Tebow. But the odds of that look very slim right now. I would honestly be shocked if Tebow is in the NFL in 2013.
At the end of the day, I think the only way Tebow...
Season SummaryThe 2012 season campaign for the Jets was disaster all around.

King adds that Jets owner Woody Johnson is “categorically against” extending Revis’ contract beyond this season.
Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune expects to see talks between the Jets and Buccaneers regarding a trade for Revis...
Seemingly playing his way out of the starting job in New York, quarterback Mark Sanchez is learning from one of Marty Mornhingweg's former protégés in a last gasp effort to keep command of the Jets' huddle.
As we inch closer to this year’s NFL Draft this month, our draft team here at Turn On The Jets will be running a series of individual prospect evaluations. These scouting reports are intended to provide an in-depth breakdown of individual prospects in this year’s draft class highlighting players’ overall strengths, weaknesses, potential upside, red flags, and what their best...
Looking to revamp a depleted depth chart, the New York Jets struck out on one of the top tight end names to hit free agency this spring.
The Jets are fighting to stay on top of their division while the Isles are clawing up the ladder in theirs. This is a must win game for two teams that may be a little weary from playing last night.
Historically, home games are not very lucky for the Islanders, but perhaps their luck is changing. Jack Capuano seems to have found the right buttons to push to keep his team playing...
