PLAYERS: Jamarko Simmons
TEAMS: New York Jets
Almost 100 players have made the leap from UFL teams to NFL teams in some capacity in 2009 and 2010.

New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills: Game Breakdown

Offense: I don’t think it is any secret that the New York Jets need to run the football this Sunday.

And those two additions of their draft pick (Marcel) Dareus and (Nick) Barnett at linebacker make them an already good unit, really good. They...

McKnight Rider About to Turbo Boost into Running Game?

For a few weeks now, there’s been speculation as to whether or not the Jets will start giving special teams standout RB Joe McKnight more chances to carry the ball out of the backfield for the Jets.  Could Joe McKnight’s time come this weekend?  Rex has indicated that it very well might ..

Jets must prove they’re champs, not chumps
