  1. did it say what number this new guy is wearing need to update my roster and poor javon here is a article from a few days a go Jovon Johnson waited this long to make it to an NFL camp; what were a few extra hours? Johnson, who signed as a defensive back with the New York Jets on Tuesday, was set to join their training camp at 2 p.m. on Wednesday. That was until coach Eric Mangini saw temperatures forecasted in the mid-90s and the heat index over 100. "They moved practice back to (Wednesday night) because the coaches were worried about heat exhaustion," Johnson said after practice, "so it really was a good day for me. The main thing right now is to learn their defense." Earlier this week, Johnson heard through his agent that the Jets were looking for extra cornerbacks because of injuries. The Mercyhurst Prep graduate signed and left for their camp in Hempstead, N.Y. Johnson, who played at the University of Iowa, became a free agent after he was bypassed in the NFL draft. He attended the Jets mini-camp in May and later worked out for the Buffalo Bills. Neither the heat nor NFL wide receivers overwhelmed Johnson after his first practice. "It was basic fundamental drills out there," he said, "the kind of stuff you were taught growing up playing (defensive) back. It's just everyone here is 10 times better than even college. You have to try to stay focused." The Jets open their preseason schedule Aug. 11 at Tampa Bay and the regular season Sept. 10 at Tennessee. "I'll just go out there and see what I can do," Johnson said. "Try to make some plays and see where they take me." i think he was a jet for only 4 days wonder why eric did not like him

  3. JETS Pennington hits receivers, and Mangini doesn

  5. jetcane who was snagging punts at the end of the session on the main field he was the last one out there
  6. i was there for the last 20 min ramsey and bollinger did not look that great mangold was the last one out there today so it was good to see
  7. Kendall practiced but Coleman, Barrett, Pouha, Ridgeway & Pociask did not. I said it before and I'll say it again Coleman better get back on the field or he will be riding the bench
  8. Jets | Kendall injured left arm in practice Wed, 2 Aug 2006 21:49:38 -0700 Updating a previous report, Rich Cimini, of the New York Daily News, reports New York Jets OG Pete Kendall (arm) suffered a left arm injury Wednesday, Aug. 2, that caused him to leave practice early.
  9. Wide receiver hurts his knee By: Craig Thomas Date: Aug 2, 2006 The Jets have rarely had tackling drills in training camp in recent years. And the one being conducted on a daily basis in Hempstead this summer, had a negative outcome on Wednesday night. Wide receiver Daunte Ridgeway hurt his right knee when thrown to the ground by safety Kerry Rhodes. He tried to get up but fell back to the ground. It looks like it could be serious. Link
  10. Mangold's sister following in his footsteps By ANDREA ADELSON, AP Sports Writer August 1, 2006 HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- When Jets center Nick Mangold started playing football in third grade, he developed his own little fan club. Baby sister Holley idolized him. She got dragged to watch him practice and play in games. She used to play a little game with Nick at home, too. Nick would get down on his knees and then tell Holley and their other sister, Kelley, to tackle him. Holley loved every second of it. She loved the hitting and tackling. Then she thought, "I want to play football, too." It hardly mattered that she was a little girl, and wanted to play offensive line -- practically unheard of for women getting involved in such a physical, violent game. Their dad, Vern, was also against the idea. He admits, "I was old school. I didn't think girls should play football." Finally, mom Therese convinced Vern to let Holley play. She started in second grade and has followed in the same footsteps as her big brother, going into her junior year at Archbishop Alter High in Kettering, Ohio, with a chance to start at guard on the varsity team. "I'd like to say I did it all on my own, but I was a little girl, he was my big brother. I saw he played football, I saw it was fun," Holley said Tuesday in a telephone interview. "So I said, 'Yeah, I'll play."' Holley, 16 and going into her junior year, played offensive and defensive line on her junior varsity team the last two years. Sure, there have been female kickers who have gotten into games, but watching a 5-foot-9, 300-pound girl play offensive line is a different story. ( your telling me!)Holley said she never considered kicking, and offered apologizes to Jets starter Mike Nugent when asked why she decided to become a lineman. "When anybody talks about being a kicker or anything like that, no offense to Nugent, but I've always thought kickers were not really part of it," she said. "They are a big part of the game but they don't get that rush of being out there. That's what I love about football, that's what kept me playing is being able to hit, and being able to run into somebody." The 6-4, 300-pound Nick Mangold also starred at Alter, then went 80 miles down the road to Ohio State, where his stellar play allowed him to be taken No. 29 overall in the draft in April. He is penciled in to start for the Jets, replacing perennial Pro Bowl selection Kevin Mawae. Though they have much in common, Nick rarely discusses football with anyone in his family. When he decides to say something to Holley about the game, it is only to give her tips or criticism. "I stay out of it because I don't want it to be something like, 'Hey that's Nick Mangold's sister, fill in the blank,"' Nick Mangold said. "I let her do her own thing and let her make the mistakes and I'll be there. Unfortunately I don't get to see the games, but if I get back and see something, I'll tell her, 'You need to get over there, you need to get in better condition. As an older brother, I need to dig on her a little bit." Nick is six years older than Holley, and he looms large over her because he blazed the football trail first. But because Holley has been playing since she was young, she has the respect of her teammates, coaches and opponents and has been completely accepted. When her team plays an opponent from outside the area that tries to attack her because they think her spot on the line is weak, they quickly are proven wrong. Vern recalled the last time it happened, against a team from Cincinnati her freshman year. "Like a lot of rock-headed coaches, they tried to run the ball at her twice in a row. They got stonewalled," Vern said. "They didn't run that way anymore. She makes believers out of folks. Holley just enjoys that cold rush when you smack into somebody. It's hard for me to say about my little buttercup, but it's true." She even has attended Ohio State football camps since eighth grade, winning the Best Offensive Lineman Award several times. "It was an eye opener for a lot of guys," she said. Holley does more than play football. She also throws the discus and shot put, and set the AAU girls record for squat lifting at 525 pounds, breaking the old mark of 470. When asked about whether he could top that, Nick said, "I can always beat her. It's the big brother syndrome." Good genes run in the family. Vern played right guard in high school, and Therese was captain of her swim team in college. Kelley is on a swimming scholarship at Agnes Scott College starting in the fall. The youngest child, 7-year-old Maggey, plays basketball and does gymnastics. But it appears only Nick and Holley were the only siblings to catch the football bug. "I have a lot of people come up to me and ask since I play football am I a feminist?" Holley said. "No, not at all. I don't think, 'I am woman hear me roar.' It was simply because football is one of the greatest sports there is and if I can keep doing it like my brother, that would be amazing."

  13. anyone know what number he is , i am tryining to make changes to my jets roster but i have no idea what number he is
  14. they also signed defensive end Val Barnaby Baker, 6-5, 200, was originally signed by the San Francisco 49ers on May 4, 2006 after playing the past four seasons at Rutgers University. He was waived by the 49ers on July 27. Baker originally enrolled at Rutgers and began his collegiate career as a quarterback before switching to wide receiver in 2003. While with the Scarlet Knights, Baker caught 56 career passes for 505 yards and two touchdowns. The native of Jersey City, NJ graduated from Marist High School in Bayonne, NJ. Fayton, 6-2, 192, caught 74 passes for 981 yards and seven touchdowns in four seasons at Tennessee, including 24 receptions for 272 yards and two touchdowns as a senior in 2005. Fayton signed as a rookie free agent with the Chicago Bears on June 5, 2006 and was waived on June 29. The native of Virginia Beach, VA, was an All-SEC Academic selection in 2003 and graduated from Tennessee with an undergraduate degree in sports management. The 6-5, 270-pound Barnaby was tied for second in the Big East (and tied for 14th nationally) with 10.0 sacks in 2005. Barnaby teamed with fellow defensive end Ryan Neill to give the Scarlet Knights a fierce pass rush in 2005, as Rutgers was tied for second nationally with 47 sacks. Barnaby, an All-State center at Franklin Township High School, recorded 41 tackles in 2005 to help lead Rutgers to a third place finish in the Big East and a berth in the Insight Bowl, was also tied for seventh in the Conference with 13.0 tackles for loss. As starter at defensive end in his final two seasons at Rutgers, Barnaby concluded his career with 109 tackles, including 23 tackles for losses and 12 sacks. MAKE THESE CHANGES TO THE ROSTER PEOPLE Baker and Fayton will join the Jets this afternoon for a 2:00 p.m. practice. Baker will wear number 19 with the Jets and Fayton will wear number three, while Barnaby has been assigned number 75. The recently signed Baker is no relation to the Jets
  15. Punter D.J. Fitzpatrick and receiver Phil Silva were released. The team signed C.J. Fayton, a 6-2, 205-pound receiver who played at Tennessee and spent some time with the Bears, and receiver Chris Baker, who played at Rutgers and was signed as an undrafted free agent by the 49ers in May. Now the Jets have two Chris Bakers. "That'll create some confusion in the meeting room," Mangini said.
  16. Also another Mangini thing that I saw for the first time was the 2nd team offense had to run a lap around BOTH fields after a bad series. Rather than the Herm, "Go get'em next time, MEN!!" mantra, Bollinger led his squad of 11 around the fields
