Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
New England Patriots
By now, Jets fans are all familiar with the many holes on this roster and have grand ideas in their heads about how they can all be fixed in one simple offseason. Well, obviously that isn’t going to be the case. There are simply too many holes to fill, and with the resources John Idzik has available — both draft picks-wise and money-wise — there is just no way they can all be plugged with new players. Therefore, some guys who are already here in Jets uniforms are going to have to fill those holes themselves. Many players who had smaller roles in 2012 are going to have to step up and contribute in a much bigger way once September roles around. Here are some of the players we can expect to see a whole lot more of in 2013.
TE Jeff Cumberland – While I am not a fan of Jeff Cumberland, we are most likely looking here at the 2013 starting tight end. Dustin Keller is a free agent and is almost certainly a goner, which leaves Cumberland to hold down the fort in the top spot, a spot he held ...

According to the New York Post, Jets owner Woody Johnson, head coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik will speak with season ticket holders on a conference call that’s scheduled for today.

NFL free agency kicks off on March 12th, only 8 days from today. The New York Jets are not expected to be overly active considering their salary cap situation. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering how the team has been run in previous years, they need to sit out the first wave of overpaid free agents and settle for 2nd and 3rd tier players who they can get at bargain...
Here’s a brief synopsis of the Tim Tebow experience in New York:
In March of 2011, Tebow was traded to the Jets and boy was he excited to be in New York.
He reportedly believed that he could beat out Mark Sanchez for the starting job, but things began to head south pretty early for Tebow.
Then, former NFL player after former NFL player began to question why the Jets even traded...
We’re on Revis Island time T…
As he continues to rehab from a knee surgery that sidelined him most of last season, Jets defensive star Darrelle Revis is keeping busy in the desert mulling over his future with the New York Jets. In the meantime, he’s been spotted hitting the clubs. Great way to kill some time before the Jets trade him.

In this video posted to Youtube on Monday, Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson interviews Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who says it really 'hit home' when he heard the news that the Jets were trying to shop him at the NFL Combine.
“I’m a competitor,” Revis said. “I’m always trying to compete, whether it’s on or off the field. This hit home. This definitely...
If the only reason the Jets acquired Tim Tebow was to have him be a publicity draw, then it only makes sense that the team would like to get a few more rounds out of the dog and pony show before releasing or trading the backup quarterback.
Jets general manager John Idzik left that possibility open this week, saying on a conference call with Jets fans Monday that Tebow will remain...

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that a trade for CB Darrelle Revis may not come until about a week or so before the NFL Draft.
Florio mentions that NFL teams would likely consider all of their options in the free agency before deciding to get seriously involved in a trade for Revis. On top of that, Revis would be able to demonstrate that his torn ACL has improving as expected...
Revis Island appears to be moving to a new city in 2013. One source tells Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that it’s only a matter of time until the New York Jets trade Darrelle Revis.
“He’s gone,” the source said. “This is happening. They’re moving him. They can’t keep him. They’re rebuilding. They’re starting fresh.”
