April 10th, 2014

FLORHAM PARK, NJ - The Jets today announced their pre-season opponents as will open the 2014 season at home against Indianapolis. After facing the Colts, the Jets will travel to Cincinnati for a matchup against the Bengals. Next they will face their regular annual opponents the NY Giants at home and finish on the road agains the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Jets open their 2014 preseason at home against Andrew Luck and the Colts.

The Jets play the Colts for just the second time in the preseason, while their matchup against the Bengals is the third in the last four years, and the second straight in Cincinnati. The team’s third preseason game against the Giants renews a series played every preseason since 1969. The fourth contest against the Eagles continues the Jets streak of facing Philadelphia in the each of the preseason’s final week since 2001.

The actual dates and times of the matchup will be announced at a later date. The regular season schedule is expected to be released sometime within the next two weeks.

Jets sign WR Jacoby Ford

April 1st, 2014

FLORHAM PARK, NJ -  The Jets signed a WR today and no it was not DeSean Jackson. They did though add some veteran depth by inking former Raiders WR Jacoby Ford.

Jets inked former Raider WR Jacoby Ford.

Ford, a former 4th round pick for the Raiders in 2010 who ran a 4.28 40 yard dash at the scouting combines can catch the ball and return kicks. The 5′9″ 190 Lb former Clemson product has shown flashes of talent over his five year career but has mostly been known for his time on the injury report. He has only 57 career receptions and just 3 TD’s.

Contract details were not available but based on Ford’s injury history it’s believed his deal is mostly incentive based. Ford joins fellow former AFC West alum, Eric Decker in the Jets re-vamped WR corps.

There had been reports that the team was also interested in former Eagles WR DeSean Jackson but since his release last week, it seems that interest has waned. Jackson met with the Redskins today and they seem to be the frontrunner to sign him.

The team also hosted free agent OL Rich Ohrnberger who spent time with the Patriots and most recently the Chargers. The career backup would provide much needed offensive line depth if he is signed.

Jets sign Vick, dump Sanchez

March 22nd, 2014

FLORHAM PARK, NJ – Ending weeks of speculation and debate, the Jets finally clarified and secured the team’s QB situation by signing veteran QB Michael Vick and releasing 5 year veteran Mark Sanchez.

NY won't have Mark Sanchez to kick around anymore as Michael Vick is signed and Sanchez is released.

Vick, who had been rumored to be on the Jets wish list since last season ended, signed a reported 1 year $5MM deal. The team announced the deal early this evening on Twitter.

After 5 up and down seasons, the last three on the downside with deteriorating stats and a season-ending injury last year, Sanchez is now a free agent. The team had to make a decision on Sanchez’s future by next Tuesday or pay him a $2MM roster bonus. His cap number this season was an enormous $13.MM. His release adds over $8MM to this years cap space.

With the signing of Vick, he reunites with his former offensive coordinator in Philadephia, Marty Mornhinweg. Vick will compete with 2nd year QB Geno Smith for the starting job and with a similar skill set, the Jets hope he can be a mentor to the still raw Smith. Even if Smith wins the starting job, the Jets now have a viable veteran on the bench if Smith falters. Something they have not had since Ryan became head coach.

Geno gets some off-season QB tutoring

February 19th, 2014

Geno Smith knows he’ll have competition next season going into training camp as it’s very likely the Jets will bring in more talent at the QB position via free agency or the draft so he is wasting  no time trying to up his game.

Jets QB Geno Smith is working to improve his skills this off-season.

ESPN’s Rich Cimini is reporting that Smith has been spotted at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL working with former Heisman Trophy winner and current QB guru Chris Wienke in an attempt to elevate his throwing mechanics and skills.

Smith worked with Weinke last season prior to the scouting combine when some had him projected as the top pick in the draft.

Jets hire LSU’s McGaughey as special teams coordinator

February 6th, 2014

FLORHAM PARK, NJ – Rex Ryan filled his final coaching vacancy on Wednesday by naming LSU special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey to the same position with the Jets. McGaughey replaces Ben Kotwica who left the team to join the Washington Redskins’ staff  last month.

The Jets went outside the NFL to hire new special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey from LSU.

McGaughey had been with LSU since 2011 where his special teams were one of the top units in the NCAA. Prior to joining LSU, he spent time as an NFL assistant with the Chiefs, Broncos and Giants where he was on Tom Coughlan’s Superbowl staff in 2007.

Rumors had been floating that the team was interested in luring former Jets special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff out of retirement, but those rumors were quickly squashed by Westhoff who publicly stated he had no interest in coming back into the NFL.

Richardson wins DROY

February 2nd, 2014

NEW YORK, NY – After being snubbed for the Pro Bowl this past week, Jets DE Sheldon Richardson got a little bit of redemption today by winning the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year award. The award was announced as part of the  NFL Honors Awards Show that takes place tonight in Manhattan.

Voted on by select Associated Press writers, Richardson beat out Bills rookie LB Kiko Alonzo by four votes. Saints S Kenny Vaccaro, Cardinals S Tyrann Mattheiu and Panther DT Star Loutulelei also got votes.

Richardson made an immediate impact on the NFL as an immediate starter on a line that blossomed into one of the best in the NFL in 2013. He finished the year with 77 tackles and 3.5 sacks and was one of the defensive linemen against the run.

Drafted in the first round of last year’s draft (#13 overall) out of Missouri, Richardson was selected with the pick acquired from the Bucs in the Darrelle Revis trade.

Blessed with a brash outspoken personality, Richardson quickly became a fan and locker room favorite this past season.
