    OTAs started today!

    finally, some "action".


    Dennis Waszak Jr. ‏@DWAZ73 4m
    Mangold says Vick's presence will help in that the players will be able to bounce things off the QB about MM's offense, etc.

    Dennis Waszak Jr. ‏@DWAZ73 5m
    Mangold on Vick: "I'm excited about having him here. He's a heckuva player." #Jets

    Dennis Waszak Jr. ‏@DWAZ73 16m
    Geno won't knock last year's offense: "It all comes down to me. If I would've done things better, we would've done better as an offense"

    Dennis Waszak Jr. ‏@DWAZ73 19m
    Geno asked if he stills feels he's going to be the #Jets' starting QB this season, and he answers with a simple, "Yes."

    Dennis Waszak Jr. ‏@DWAZ73 21m
    Geno says "no, not at all," when asked if he thought it showed some lack in confidence that #Jets signed Vick.

    Dennis Waszak Jr. ‏@DWAZ73 23m
    Geno Smith on Vick: "He's a good guy. I look forward to working with him & I look forward to competing with him as well." #Jets

    Dennis Waszak Jr. ‏@DWAZ73 25m
    Sheldon Richardson on new RB Chris Johnson: "He's a highlight reel waiting to happen." #Jets

    Dennis Waszak Jr. ‏@DWAZ73 28m
    Sheldon Richardson on whether he sees himself as more than just a 3 1/2 sack defensive tackle: "Mosssst deffffinitely." #Jets

    These are still voluntary workouts, OTA's don't start until late May.

    Offseason Team Activity, correct? Voluntary or mandatory, still the same in my opinion.

    ok, so since i'm so absurdly wrong with calling a voluntary organized team activity an offseason team activity, we should just delete this thread right?

    jesus, 150 pages on chris johnson, 120 on DJax and a guy makes a thread of actual Jets team news and gets sh!t on for it. MODS PLEASE EDIT THE TITLE TO APPEAL TO THE MASSES.

    thx.

    Organized.

    Might want to get your facts straight if you're going to be snarky.

    How far along is Mike Goodson? Rex: "#Again, we'll lean on the trainers for that."

    Kimberley A. Martin ‏@KMart_LI 4m
    Rex won't say #Jets will absolutely go back to their ground-and-pound days...

    Kimberley A. Martin ‏@KMart_LI 5m
    Rex adds that he hopes RB Mike Goodson is healthy coming off knee surgery...... #jets

    Seems like if he's healthy (and not in jail) he could still have a chance of making the team.

    I thought it was actually a very worthwhile distinction that he made.

    I still think it's great to have a thread like this since guys in the building lifting weights does count as action for any starved fan. But I an also glad the distinction was made between this and our regular OTAs since I was a bit hazy on that.

    Thanks, for those that are interested in what the players and coaches are allowed to do during the off season workouts, here is a basic outline of what and when these activities can occur.

    Phase One (Two Weeks)
    The first two weeks of team offseason workouts is strictly for strength and conditioning purposes.

    The only coaches allowed to engage the players in these workouts are full-time strength and conditioning coaches. Other coaches are not allowed on the field and cannot participate in or observe these activities.

    No footballs are allowed to be used except in "dead ball" activities, but quarterbacks are allowed to throw to receivers, provided nobody is covering them.

    Helmets are forbidden.


    Phase Two (Three Weeks)
    After being handcuffed for the first two weeks of these offseason workouts, coaches are allowed on the field in Phase Two.

    Acceptable workouts during this period of time are limited to "individual player instruction and drills," including "perfect play" drills, which are team drills, but the offense and defense cannot play against each other.

    Special teams drills are also permitted, but never with any opposition. In other words, the kicking team can practice, but not against the return team, and vice versa.

    As it was in Phase One, helmets are not permitted, nor is any contact.

    Phase Three (Four Weeks)
    This final four-week period of offseason workouts includes the team's mandatory minicamp and can include a total of 10 days of organized team workouts.

    During the first two weeks, teams are allowed a maximum of three workout days per week, and during the final two weeks, teams cannot hold more than four per week.

    Just as it was in Phase Two, all coaches are allowed on the field and teams are forbidden from any contact. One-on-one drills are also still off the menu.

    Kick and return teams are allowed to practice against one another, provided there is no contact.

    Team offense vs. defense drills are also permitted, provided no live contact occurs, and teams may require players to wear helmets, though no shells or pads are permitted.

    Dang, dude, what's the issue? It's not a personal attack or anything like that, just clarifying the difference. Thanks for your updates!
