AP sources: Jets cut DT Garay, K Carpenter

A person familiar with the situation says the New York Jets have released veteran defensive tackle Antonio Garay as the team gets to the mandatory 53-player roster limit. Garay had signed with the Jets in March to add depth to the team's defensive line, but the emergence of both Damon Harrison and Leger Douzable made him expendable. He spent the last four seasons with San Diego...

What Does Rex Ryan's D Say Before Entering The 2013 Season?‏

After last nights preseason game, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. Preseason camp is over, and finally a new season will soon dawn on us. There are many questions left unanswered, such as the QB competition, and the starting RB. But one thing that has stayed consistent for Rex, and usually does, is the strength of his mastermind defense. Early on, the defense looked a little...

2013 New York Jets Defensive Line: The Sum of The Parts

The defensive line of the 2013 New York Jets has gotten an agglomeration of hype from pundits and fans alike and is expected to be a bright spot on a team of unknowns. However, observers at every level have been putting square pegs into round holes when it comes to the men in the trenches. Most envision a starting line up in either a 3-4 or 4-3 formation, with players pigeonholed...

Jets D-line promising mix of talent, personalities

Antonio Garay used to scoot around San Diego in a little, red Smart Car with huge Hello Kitty faces decorating each door. The funny photos of the former Charger and current New York Jets nose tackle squeezing his 6-foot-4, 320-pound frame into the attention-grabbing but environmentally friendly vehicle were all over the Internet a year ago. But, new Jets teammate Quinton Coples...

Zach: Defensive Line Potential Will Become Production

I am high on Gang Green's X's this season. It's been this way since Rex Ryan joined the Jets in '09. The part that intrigues me the most in 2013 is the defensive line. The Jets haven't been know for pass-rush and a powerful D-Line, but this year could be an exception. There will be improvement, that looks almost certain, with the additions of defensive...

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Jets have signed former Chargers DT Antonio Garay to a one-year deal. Garay, 33, was cut loose by the Chargers because of his 2013 base salary of $5 million. This looks like another quality addition for the Jets as Garay has been a pretty effective interior pass rusher in recent years. It’s doubtful that he’ll be anymore than a rotational...
