    New Story: Jets Rookie Camp '12: The Fighter & The Future

    The introductory mini-camp for rookies has always offered a surplus of stories ranging from star-studded arrivals to just plain survival. From early round draft picks still beaming from the promise of millions and the glitz of Radio City Music Hall to those who were invited out for a shot at chasing their dream of playing in the NFL.

    But make no mistake about it, Ortiz will have a LOT of people in his corner. WHO doesn't like to see the underdog beat the odds?

    The latter is why I was a huge Chrebet fan. I think that's why my favorite player now is Mike Devito. Another underdog story.
