  1. At long last, the Jets didn’t finish last in a preseason ranking — but they were pretty close. Pro Football Focus ranked all of the secondaries in the NFL. and well, the analytical site is not all that impressed with the Jets. PFF ranked New York’s tsecondary 28th out of 32 teams, noting the addition of Morris Claiborne as a major reason why the Jets were not lower.Claiborne finished his time with the Cowboys strong and had an overall grade of 84 for his performance in Dallas last season. The cornerback is now a major piece for this unit. In addition, Marcus Williams and Buster Skrine will be depended on heavily to make plays in the secondary and keep opposing receivers in check during games. Altogether, those three will be extremely important in defending the aerial attack.The Jets will also hope that rookies Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye can help to bring along this defense. Obviously, they are young, but the Jets have seen promise in them. Adams especially has been turning heads during training camp. As the Jets continue to rebuild and try to develop a winning culture in the organization, PFF provides them with even more bulletin board material to be used as motivation. > http://jetswire.usatoday.com/2017/07/20/pff-few-nfl-secondaries-worse-than-the-jets/
  2. Gary Myers : Young Roster Is the Way to Go Team Contributor Ethan Greenberg Talks with NY Daily News Columnist Gary Myers About the Jets' Roster video.. > http://www.newyorkjets.com/videos/videos/Gary-Myers-Young-Roster-Is-the-Way-to-Go/14f00267-9c33-4e98-bd71-048d4584a29a
  3. Overview The Jets' cornerbacks in the year after Darrelle Revis departed are a green bunch and not just from the color of their defensive jerseys in training camp. Ten players are listed as CBs to start the summer and they average a mere 2.0 NFL seasons apiece. Juston Burris, last year's fourth-rounder, is joined by rookies/first-year players Jeremy Clark, Derrick Jones, Bryson Keeton and Xavier Coleman. The experience in the group will come from Morris Claiborne, the unrestricted free agent from Dallas, and Buster Skrine, the seventh-year pro and third-year Jet who new DBs coach Dennard Wilson says "has taken on more of a leadership role, especially with the rookies we have, and they're starting to jell and create a good nucleus."In the Spotlight Much has been expected of Claiborne since the Cowboys made him the sixth overall pick of the 2012 draft. But he had only four interceptions and 43 starts in his five years with the 'Pokes, primarily because of his mystifying penchant for injuries. "It's just been a whole lot of things that have happened where you ask yourself where that came from," he said this offseason. "I feel like when I'm healthy I can take a whole side of the field away." Wilson and Claiborne's teammates have seen his attentiveness to detail and competitiveness already and all are hoping for a breakout campaign for the Jets' new No. 21. Position Battles Claiborne's skill and experience give him a leg up on a starting job but the young corners will be going at it all summer to earn jobs in the base and the sub packages. Four players on this year's roster — Marcus Williams, Darryl Roberts, Skrine and Burris — made starts for the Jets last season and each was in for at least 185 defensive plays. They will all in turn be pushed by fourth-year man Dexter McDougle plus the "sophomores and freshmen" mentioned in the overview.At the Front of the Room Wilson coached up the Rams' DBs the previous two seasons. Last season was particularly impressive as he molded a young group similar in makeup to this year's Jets in that franchise's first year back in Los Angeles. The Rams pass defense, although not getting as much of a sack contribution up front as the year before, still ranked in the NFL's top 10 in yards allowed for the last nine weeks of the season, finishing 10th. Of his new charges on the Jets, Wilson says, "The defensive backs are outstanding, a lot of great, hard-working young men. I come to work passionate about being around them every day." > http://www.newyorkjets.com/news/article-7/Claiborne-Skrine-and-Lots-of-Youth/70a8e85e-4906-4d80-883a-26de0aa96135
  4. Jets' Josh McCown vows to be 'a dang good bridge' QB Long-suffering fans of the New York Jets are bracing themselves for an autumn disaster.After watching the team cut bait with nearly every trusted veteran on the roster -- Eric Decker, David Harris, Brandon Marshall, Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold and more -- expectations are grim. Just don't tell that to Josh McCown. The 38-year-old journeyman refuted the idea that he's nothing more than a "bridge" quarterback brought on to guide teammates through a lost season."As a competitor, your first reaction is, 'Well, I'm not a bridge and, if that's the case, I'm gonna be a dang good bridge,'" McCown said on Thursday's edition of Mike and Mike on ESPN. "So, for me, I understand the role that I'm in and I'm excited to come in and compete and help our team win."Toiling for the Bucs and Browns, McCown generated a 2-20 record over the past three seasons. Last year's Cleveland club was dangerously low on talent, but this Jets team, on paper, looks even more lost. McCown is New York's best option under center, but we're bound to see Bryce Petty and the enigmatic Christian Hackenberg also make starts for a team that has drawn accusations of overtly tanking in hopes of landing the No. 1 pick in next year's draft -- and the quarterback of its choice."It's hard to argue [with] that," wideout Quincy Enunwa recently said on the "tank" theory, "when everybody else sees all the stuff that's going on." McCown's job, though, is to happily lead this Jets team into the fray -- even if the battle already looks lost. video.. > http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000820945/article/jets-josh-mccown-vows-to-be-a-dang-good-bridge-qb
  5. Which Jets' veterans are on the roster bubble as training camp nears ? > http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2017/07/which_jets_veterans_are_on_the_roster_bubble_with.html#incart_river_index
  6. Breaking down the New York Jets' roster, unit by unit, in preparation for training camp, which begins July 29 : Position: Wide receiver Projected starters: Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson Projected reserves: Jalin Marshall (faces four-game suspension), Charone Peake, ArDarius Stewart, Chad Hansen Notables on the bubble: Devin Street, Marquess Wilson, Myles White, Frankie Hammond Top storyline: No position group exemplifies the Jets' rebuilding project more than the receiving corps. The team dumped a pair of still-capable receivers making good but not outrageous money -- Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall -- and handed the position to a bunch of kids. And we're not talking about blue-chip prospects here, as none of the aforementioned top six was drafted higher than the third round. How this unfolds will tell us a lot about general manager Mike Maccagnan's personnel acumen. He obviously sees something in these unheralded players that most people don't. Enunwa, Anderson, Marshall and Peake have only 155 career catches and eight touchdowns between them. Player to watch: Enunwa was one of the most improved players last season, but now he needs to make another jump to validate his new status as the No. 1 receiver. Brandon Marshall isn't around anymore to draw attention, meaning Enunwa will face more coverage and/or better cornerbacks than he did as the No. 2 or No. 3. He also must make the transition to the perimeter. Of his 57 catches last season, 44 came when he was lined up in the slot, at tight end or in the backfield, per ESPN Stats & Information. Wild card: When the Jets drafted Stewart in the third round out of Alabama, they saw a receiver with the potential to contribute immediately in a significant role. Then he underwent surgery to repair a lingering groin injury and another operation to fix a new thumb injury, causing him to miss the bulk of the offseason. They say he will be ready for training camp, but you have to wonder about his conditioning and comfort level with the offense. Training camp will be a success if ... People aren't screaming for the Jets to add a veteran. Remember, they won't have Marshall for four games due to a PED suspension, which means they'll be counting on Peake and the rookies -- Stewart and Hansen -- to fill key roles. That's risky. Come to think of it, the entire plan at receiver is a big risk. By the numbers: Anderson showed promise as an undrafted rookie, but he'll have to add some diversity to his game. That also falls on the coaching staff. When he played against base defenses (four defensive backs), the plan usually went something like this: "Go deep, Robby." In those situations, his 15 targets averaged an astounding 21 air yards per attempt, according to ESPN Stats & Info. How 'bout some variety? > http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york-jets/post/_/id/69580/jets-hope-to-catch-a-rising-star-or-two-at-wide-receiver

  9. Breaking down the New York Jets' roster, unit by unit, in preparation for training camp, which begins July 29 : Position: Tight end Projected starter: Austin Seferian-Jenkins (faces two-game suspension). Projected reserves: Eric Tomlinson, Jordan Leggett. Notables on the bubble: Brian Parker, Jason Vander Laan. Top storyline: The tight end is back. New coordinator John Morton runs a West Coast-based offense, and the tight end is a big part of that system. The new approach was on display in minicamp, as the tight ends were featured in some team periods. Under Morton's predecessor, Chan Gailey, the Jets' tight ends were used primarily as blockers. The new way -- the way used by 31 other teams -- will add more balance to the passing attack. Welcome to the modern NFL, New York. Player to watch: Seferian-Jenkins was one of the offseason stars, but can he maintain that momentum with the pads on? If he can, it would be a heck of a story. He dropped 25 pounds, went to rehab and quit drinking, vowing to turn around his life and career. With his skill set -- a 6-foot-5 frame and above-average speed -- he has the ability to thrive as a receiver. The man has talent (42 catches in his first two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers), but he has always lacked focus and commitment. Maybe he has turned the corner. This is a contract year for Seferian-Jenkins, so there's no shortage of motivation. Wild card: Leggett, a fifth-round pick from Clemson, had a rough spring, but the team still loves his upside. In college, his receiving metrics compared favorably with those of O.J. Howard, whom the Jets probably would have chosen at No. 6 overall if Jamal Adams had been off the board. Leggett's problem is that he's not a good blocker. To become an every-down player in this offense, he'll have to improve a lot in that area. Training camp will be a success if ...: A starting-caliber player emerges to replace Seferian-Jenkins for Weeks 1 and 2. Slapped with a suspension stemming from a DUI arrest last September, Seferian-Jenkins can practice and play in the preseason, but he must sit out the first two regular-season games, at Buffalo and at Oakland. Tomlinson is the next man up in the pecking order, but he's primarily a run-blocker. Parker has some game experience (nine games with the Kansas City Chiefs), but we're not talking about a grizzled vet. By the numbers: By now, you're probably well aware of the Jets' abysmal receiving stats over the past two seasons, but here's the most mind-blowing number of them all: The tight ends had zero -- zero! -- catches in the red zone in 2016, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Three targets, no catches. Wow. > http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york-jets/post/_/id/69555/remember-the-tight-end-jets-hope-to-breathe-life-into-dead-position
