Former Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets QB Mark Brunell is expected to retire rather than pursue a 20th season in the NFL.  Brunell spent the last two seasons with the New York Jets backing up QB Mark Sanchez but was rarely used, attempting just 16 passes in the last two seasons.The Jets have moved on from Brunell, trading for former Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow this offseason. The southpaw signal caller spent time with five NFL teams during his 19-year career, but his most productive seasons came as the starting quarterback with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Brunell spent nine season with the Jaguars, throwing 114 touchdowns. Brunell told the Florida Times-Union that he has been preparing for this moment in his career for some time now. “Most guys that have trouble leaving the game are in their 20s. I’ve been preparing for this moment for quite some time.” For his career, Brunell has thrown for 32,072 yards, 184 touchdowns and 79 interceptions. He finishes his career with an 84.0 ...

Jersey Sports Fan: “Tebow’s Ark heads to Ottawa”

Finally, the Jersey Sports Fan has returned in the post-Tebow Jets trade era! This is certainly another hilarious episode from the Jersey Sports Fan, although it’s a little more NSFW than usual thanks to our guy discussing the sexual preferences of Tim Tebow. Check out the episode and our favorite quotes below.

Tebow to speak at Cincinnati Christian University

New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow will talk about ''faith and football'' to a packed house at Cincinnati Christian University. School spokesman Steve Carr said some 2,000 people are expected to hear Tebow on Tuesday in a discussion in the school gym and at an evening fundraising banquet. Recently traded to the Jets from Denver, Tebow is known for late-game heroics...

Trent Richardson is the top player on the Jets draft board

We just posted an article about the possibility of the New York Jets trading up for Alabama running back Trent Richardson. Now we’ve learned from ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio that Richardson is the number one player on the Jets draft board. Richardson said he’d love to play for the Jets, who are clearly looking to get back to their ground and pound style of offense in 2012. ...

Jets inform Tebow he’ll be playing on special teams

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Jets have told back up quarterback Tim Tebow that they will be using him on special teams as a punt protector.  Sounds like a joke to me, but it’s unfortunately true. I guess the Jets were once again starving for attention, so they decided to make it known that Tebow will be playing on special teams.  If this isn’t a sign that...

Report: Jets likely won’t trade up for Richardson

It was reported earlier today that the New York Jets may try and trade up in the first round of tomorrow’s draft to land Alabama running back Trent Richardson, since he’s the number one player on their board. Now it looks like as much as the Jets may want Richardson, it doesn’t look like they’ll be willing to give up the picks that would enable them to trade up, according...

NFL Films: Tim Tebow is better than Earl Campbell and Marcus Allen

The NFL Network and NFL Films has done it again with one of their Top 10 lists. A few years ago, they made the decision to include both Syracuse and the MAC as football factories, while leaving Oklahoma and Texas off. Yesterday evening, they released their Top 10 list of Heisman Winners in the NFL [...]

Darrelle Revis won’t rule out another holdout this summer

When Darrelle Revis held out of Jets training camp in 2010, an agreement was reached that was seen as a temporary fix. He and the team agreed to a four-year, $46 million contract which paid Revis $32.5 million in 2010 and 2011 but will only dish out a combined $13.5 million in 2012 and 2013. Based on the current market, that is not enough for the player whom the Jets consider to...

Jets likely to get defensive again early in draft

The New York Jets have 10 picks in this year's NFL draft, starting with No. 16 overall. That's a whole lot for general manager Mike Tannenbaum to deal with, especially considering that New York has had a total of 13 picks in the last three years. New York certainly has plenty of roster holes after a quiet run through free agency so far. Oh, there was also that headline-grabbing...

NFL Draft: Will New York Jets Add To Defensive Line?

While the Jets have glaring needs at OLB, Safety, Wide Receiver, and Right Tackle heading into Thursday’s draft, one position few people are talking about is Defensive Line. Although the Jets are somewhat stable on the defensive front, having drafted promising DE Mohammed Wilkerson with their first pick last year, and extending NT Sione Pouha this offseason, there is a tremendous...

'For Whom the Bell Tolls'

The safety position was an adventure for the New York Jets in 2011. Jim Leonhard was lost for the season due to injury for the second time in as many years, while the combination of Brodney Pool and Eric Smith were victimized by opposing quarterbacks. Could free agent Yeremiah Bell help alleviate Gang Green's safety woes?

2012 NFL Mock Draft: Picks 11-20
