  1. In my book the only thing Smith gets this year is a chance to compete for the starting job. I'm not going to be deceived (like last year) by good play in the final month of the season
  2. But with the way the media likes to perpetuate the idea that the Jets are disorganized and a circus: http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2015/04/jets_conducted_more_organized_pro_day_for_local_nf.html The Jets and Giants both held their pro days for local NFL Draft prospects last week. The Giants went first, on Thursday. The Jets followed on Friday. It was the first local pro day for the Jets' new general manager, Mike Maccagnan, who is a rookie in that job. He previously was the Texans' college scouting director, so he has experience with this sort of thing . Players who attended both pro days came away thinking the Jets' session "was much more organized and felt more structured" than the Giants' pro day, according to a source with knowledge of both pro days. The feeling among players was that the Jets' pro day "was very impressive." Specifically, the players liked that the Jets' day had a structured schedule, the source said. The source, who is not affiliated with the Jets or Giants, spoke to NJ Advance Media on a condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk publicly about the pro days. That Maccagnan put on an organized local pro day should come as no surprise. He has an extensive scouting background, and a reputation for being thorough, detailed and business-like in his approach. Here's a look at the players who were scheduled to attend the Giants' local pro day. And here's a list of players scheduled to be at the Jets' local pro day.
  3. I believe the maximum amount of players you can have when camp starts is 90
  4. Don't argue with "fans" that love to be ignorant. You're right, the players Maccagnan is adding have all played in the league and most of them have starts under their belts. That makes a huge difference if/when injuries hit and you need to go to your backups
  5. By Joe Caporoso at Turn On The Jets about the depth of this team: http://turnonthejets.com/2015/04/new-york-jets-on-building-and-keeping-depth/#more-26473
  6. True, our backups in the past were low cost UDFA types. And we hoped that we would catch lightning in a bottle like we did with Mike DeVito. Unfortunately that rarely happened now we have legitimate NFL players as backups
  7. I was just thinking the same thing. With as many ILB's we now have I'm wondering if Bowles is going to switch players to different positions
  8. Another ILB he played one year for HOU. That's where he crossed Maccagnan's path: http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/11434/joe-mays
  9. He's still signing players, unbelievable Kimberley A. Martin @KMart_LI · 2 minutes ago ILB Joe Mays is expected to sign with the #Jets next week (as @caplannfl reported)
  10. With the dumbness in CLE organization and the desperation of Tanny to make another "splash" move in MIA we could easily have two teams to trade down with on draft night. And both teams need WR's so they may bid against each other to get to #6
  11. Jet fans better understand that we have a life long scout/personnel guy running the team now and he's going to do what he's done his whole professional life, find talent. But now unlike his previous positions Maccagnan has the power to sign who he likes not just suggest the player to his boss. Stop complaining and enjoy the depth we're building
  12. So let me get this straight, Jet fans are NOW UPSET because our front office is relentless in increasing the talent on the team??? Give me a break!!!
  13. Are you serious??? You do realize we don't have a RB under contract past this year. Ivory is on the last year of his deal and Powell & Ridley signed 1 year deals. Who cares about the guaranteed $$$ Ridley got, if he can't come back to form he's gone. On top of that why are people complaining about him??? Other than this year when he got hurt he's averaged over 4 yards a rush: http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/14028/stevan-ridley We'll draft our future workhorse RB this year
  14. Ronald Talley An incredible job by the front office of filling the back end of the roster with players that have actually played in the league. Young players that think they can "skate" onto the roster are going to get passed by
  15. Good to see the Parcells influence coming out in Bowles interactions with the media. Enough with all of the compliments and "soft stroking" call players out and push them to improve
  16. He played one year for HOU so Maccagnan has a history with him: http://www.nfl.com/player/joemays/4277/profile If this is true it's amazing how the front office is still looking at free agents. By this time most teams are totally focused on the draft and won't sign free agents until it's over
  17. With the signings of Lattimore & Henderson we don't "have to" draft an ILB now. It totally frees us up to get the best player available when we're picking in the middle rounds
  18. Very productive ILB until his life got off track: http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/11636/erin-henderson
  19. If he's gotten his life together it's an excellent pick up: http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2015/04/erin_henderson_troubled_linebacker_agrees_to_terms.html Erin Henderson, a linebacker whose career with the Vikings was cut short by substance abuse and a pair of DWI arrests, has agreed to terms with the Jets on a one-year contract, league sources told NJ Advance Media on Tuesday. The move fills another depth void for the Jets, who last week signed former Packers inside linebacker Jamari Lattimore to be a backup to starters Demario Davis and David Harris. And while there are risks, given Henderson's background, the Jets are satisfied that Henderson has turned his life around after multiple meetings with him that included an on-field workout in Arizona last month and a visit to Florham Park on Friday, sources said. Henderson, 28, has been out of the NFL since the Vikings cut him in February 2014, one month after his second arrest for DWI in a span of six weeks, with the latter involving a single-car crash that resulted in no injuries and charges of marijuana possession. In May, Henderson pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor charge and was sentenced to two years' probation, according to Carver County (Minn.) court records. Henderson could be subject to discipline from the NFL under the terms of its substance-abuse policy. He was suspended for four games last September, but the Vikings had already cut him by then. An NFL spokesman did not immediately reply to an email about whether Henderson's suspension would carry over into 2015. Henderson has spent the last 15 months trying to get his life in order. He told TMZ he had checked into an inpatient rehab facility hours after he was released from jail. In a candid interview with USA Today last April, he admitted to having come to practice with a hangover at times, but that his second arrest was the "extra kick in the butt" he needed to face his demons and to try to get clean. A source said he was completely transparent and open about his past in his talks with the Jets. More from Henderson's USA Today interview from April 2014: "I've learned that substance abuse is often a byproduct of different things. For me, it was my way of numbing things and not having to worry about a lot of things. That's pretty much what I did. "When I look back on it, I realize that's not living. That's not life. You're supposed to feel certain things. You're supposed to have emotions. Life is not meant to just be coasted through. But one of the things they tell us a lot in rehab is there's nothing that a drink won't make worse." A source familiar with Henderson's situation said he moved with with his wife and son to Los Angeles after the Vikings cut him. He committed himself to focusing on his family and to working out in L.A. and Orlando, Fla., in the hopes of getting another shot at the NFL. Through a program administered by the NFL Players Association, Henderson has also been taking courses toward an MBA from the University of Miami (Fla.). Henderson had worked out for the Chiefs in February, a source said. He was not invited to the NFL's veteran combine in Arizona a few weeks back, but he instead arranged a private workout for teams around the same time. Six teams, including the Jets, sent scouting personnel to check him out. He later flew to San Francisco to work out for the 49ers, but after he left without a contract, Henderson visited the Jets last Friday. Henderson liked the family fit and feel the Jets offered, a source said. The Jets' staff, too, came away satisfied it would be worth it to extend him an offer. Henderson is one drink or toke away from going down the same spiral as before, but his openness seemed sincere, a source said. The two sides agreed to contract terms on Tuesday. A source said Henderson's deal will pay him $745,000, which is the league's veteran minimum. Henderson is expected to arrive back in Florham Park to sign his contract Wednesday morning. So what kind of player are the Jets getting? Henderson joined the league with the Vikings in 2008 as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Maryland. He played 22 games and made zero starts in his first three seasons before eventually settling in as a starter in 2011. Though he had been a 4-3 outside linebacker for a while with the Vikings, he later was moved inside. He had three sacks playing outside in 2012 and four on the inside in 2013. The Jets plan plan to play him on the inside, a source said, where their only backups are Lattimore and Mario Harvey. In 2013, Henderson signed a two-year contract with the Vikings worth $4 million. He left more than half that amount on the table by being released. "I like to call myself a recovering alcoholic," he said in that USA Today interview from last year. "I understand it's an ongoing battle. It's a lifelong thing. Anybody that's dealt with me, anybody in the Vikings organization, know that the things that transpired aren't me. That was a different person that had taken over my body, pretty much. "For me, it's nothing different than when I came out here to the Vikings as an undrafted free agent. Once I get on to a team and get on to a roster, I trust myself and believe myself. It's just a matter of somebody going out on a limb and trusting me."
  20. Rex PLEASE sign him!!! It would be wonderful to get Amaro, Kerley etc on him in a 1 on 1 situation
  21. KRL

    Good For Amaro

    People will continue to defend Rex and bypass his failings, BUT there have been three players that have criticized his practices: Davis Mangold Decker And a rookie that has criticized his accountability. Enough said
  22. KRL

    Good For Amaro

    Yes, we know Ryan coached us to two championship games. BUT those teams had tons of veterans that knew the value of accountability and enforced it in the locker room. When the structure of the team changed Ryan's lack of accountability was exposed
  23. How bad was lateness that a rookie who struggled noticed it and commented on it??? http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2015/04/jace_amaro_rex_ryan_didnt_hold_jets_accountable.html Jets players are eager to say how no-nonsense new head coach Todd Bowles seems to be. "He's a very stern guy, a very stern coach," quarterback Geno Smith said, per the team's website. "Strong-minded, and to the team he speaks his mind," defensive end Sheldon Richardson told the team's website. "We got to see him up in front of the team [Monday] morning," center Nick Mangold told reporters Monday. "He's got a great passion." But tight end Jace Amaro, now entering his second season, was the first to draw a distinction between Bowles and Rex Ryan, who was fired after 2014 and is now the head man with the Bills. In an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio, Amaro didn't mention Ryan by name. But he didn't have to. "He's not really playing around with everyone being late," Amaro said of Bowles. "We had an issue with that last year. Guys just weren't accountable last year as much as they could be. I think that's the biggest thing. [bowles is] making sure everyone's gonna be 100 percent in or he's not going to be on the team." Smith had missed a meeting because of some time-zone confusion on the night before the Jets got drilled by the Chargers last October. But by saying tardiness was "an issue," Amaro implied the problem wasn't just about that isolated incident involving Smith. Amaro also implied that compared to Ryan, Bowles won't be messing around.
  24. Wilkerson is in an interesting situation, he can push for an extension now and probably get a deal that averages 10 million a year in new $$$. Or he can bet on himself and with QB's having to hold the ball longer because of our lockdown CB's go out and get 12+ sacks. Then he could get a deal that averages 12+ million a year in new $$$
  25. All new coaches get extra time in the CBA to implement their systems
