Newly traded tackle Jason Smith 'turning a new page' with Jets (and other notes)
Jets have waived CB Ryan Steed.
Young Jets DBs bracing to get a lot of work vs. Phi. They expect only 5 of them to play: Posey, Fletcher, Allen, D. Lynn and Trufant.
TJ Conley not worried about addition of punter. Says he's been through competition before.
Jason Smith, on the trade, says "beauty is in the eye of the beholder -- and someone thought I was beautiful."
RT @ConorTOrr: Tim Tebow would be starter if Sanchez went down and other #jets notes:
RT @ConorTOrr: MT @jimsteeg: NFL Network hired former #nyj LaDainian Tomlinson for its "First on the Field" Sunday morning show
Thurman also said, "When they see we are all together, the players say, 'OK, they’re all together.' How can we not be all together?"
In June, asst. Dennis Thurman said training was "a reminder of what it takes...how difficult the task is to all be in one accord."
Jets players doing off-site leadership training before preseason finale
The coaches did a similar training earlier this offseason, to promote unity on the staff.
Most of Jets starters are not at practice. They are doing a leadership training off-site in Bedminster with military special forces.
Among the first-teamers who could play Thurs: Conner, Howard, Coples. Rex not sure if Hill will play.
Rex says a benefit in trade for them was getting a tackle (Smith) about 5 yrs younger, a bit more athletic.
Rex is hoping to get 10 plays out of Jason Smith vs Philly Thurs night. Not sure if that's possible
Why wouldn't Josh Bush play?
If Bell is still hurt, Bush is the starter.
