Turn On The Jets:
New England Patriots
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
San Diego Chargers
New York Jets
When the Jets signed free agent tight end and former Brown’s first round pick Kellen Winslow Jr., the fan base had a mixed reaction of excitement and skepticism. Most of the excitement stemmed from the lack of adding anyone remotely talented at the tight end position and the skepticism was due to Winslow Jr. barely playing in the NFL last season. The main concern with Winslow is how healthy his knees are, an issue only Winslow himself could detail for you. As that question will answer itself throughout training camp, I’ve also seen another issue raised by the media every time Winslow’s name is brought up: his age.
Kellen will be 30 years old this season, an age where players who rely on their speed to compete in the NFL are often tested. Fortunately, tight ends have a better longevity than most positions as these players use their size and underneath route running, more so than vertical, deeper routes. Winslow had a very productive 2011 season in Tampa Bay, catching 75 passes for 7...

Members of the New York Jets have varying levels of importance when it comes to the team’s success this upcoming season. The Jets could be ok if Dee Milliner doesn’t play lights out from Day 1 because they had a highly ranked pass defense with Kyle Wilson playing corner opposite Antonio Cromartie. If David Harris doesn’t bounce back from a subpar 2012 it will hurt less if Mo...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that the Jets are working out both Austin Collie and Laurent Robinson. Collie was once a promising young receiver in Indianapolis but his career derailed after he received numerous concussions in a short period of time. Robinson flourished with the Cowboys in 2011 but fell off last season with the Jaguars and fell onto the IR in November...
As much as Jets fans would like to see Geno Smith be their week one starter this season, Mark Sanchez will likely win the job, according to the New York Daily News.
Smith thrived with quick, short passes in college — one of the staples in Mornhinweg’s offense, too — but it’s unlikely that the rookie will be ready to be the Week 1 starter. He’s still working...
Santonio Holmes, who missed most of last season with a foot injury, still is uncertain when he will be able to return to the field.
Holmes in an interview earlier this week declared himself day-to-day. Holmes said he does not want to put himself in a position to re-injure his foot, and will be very cautious upon his return.

Mark Sanchez is all about vanity. As a rookie, he posed for a spread in GQ, showing his NFL counterparts he was more than just your regular NFL player. Now this would be one hell of a vanity plate for the New York Jets captain. I’m just not sure though if they’ll be able to squeeze in Butt before Fumble-TO

It looks like it will be another year of watching Mark Sanchez under center in the Meadowlands.
Sanchez has a “firm grip” on the starting role at quarterback, according to Don Banks of Sports Illustrated. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News confirms Banks’ report, saying it’s unlikely rookie Geno Smith will be starting Week 1, but that he’ll get a chance to play if...
Getting drafted by the Jets is a blessing and a curse for Geno Smith. After sitting through the entire first night of the draft and thinking about skipping day two, Smith landed in a situation where the starting quarterback gig is there for the taking.The flip-side of all of that is it’s for a team that can’t get its act together. Case in point, the way they handled the Tim Tebow...
Everyone in New England's favorite kicker has finally found another gig. This time, he'll be even closer to the Patriots, in fact, we might get to see him twice a year.

The quarterback competition between Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith is the most interesting storyline to follow from New York Jets training camp this summer. Most reporters have used words like “uninspiring” to describe Smith’s performance during practice since the Jets drafted him, and multiple reports have indicated Sanchez should be the starter come Week 1. [...]
When Santonio Holmes says he’s day to day, he’s not kidding.
The Jets wide receiver, who missed a majority of last season with a foot injury, does not have a timetable for his return.
"I don’t have a target date," Holmes said yesterday at a uStadium Flag Football charity event on Roosevelt Island. "I’m just stating the facts that the season starts soon and...

Living in New York can either be very easy or very hard as a sports fan. If you’re a Yankees or a Giants fan you get blessed with World Series victories and Super Bowl championships. However, if you’re like me, you sit and sulk when the Mets and Jets continuously disappoint and just hope for a better season next year. When Mark Sanchez first became a Jet, it seemed like there...
