  1. I think he’ll be a good addition and work well w/Colon. Lucas is Lucas. Whatever. Erik Coleman is really good but I think he has other broadcasting commitments.
  2. Updated August 15, 2018 7:28 PM By Neil Best Bart Scott has been enjoying his nascent radio career recently, but he soon will begin a television job that offers a practical bonus he does not get on WFAN. “I finally get the opportunity to pull my suits back out, man,” he said Wednesday. “I invested a lot of money in my time on CBS, and I’ve still got those suits.” Starting with a preview show at 7 p.m. on Aug. 26 and continuing throughout the season, Scott is joining SNY’s Jets pregame and postgame studio team, which also includes analysts Ray Lucas and Willie Colon and host Jonas Schwartz. Scott, a Jets linebacker from 2009-12 and an analyst on CBS’ “The NFL Today” from 2014-16, said he not only is looking forward to a return to TV but also to focusing on one team and going into greater detail than on a national show. “What I love about where the game of football is is that our fans are so much more educated than they used to be,” he said. “You can credit a lot of that to video games, but mainly to fantasy football and sports betting and things like that. You have to give the fans more. “I like talking football on a master level, and I feel like the fan base in New York is so smart they can digest a lot of things I want to talk about to be able to provide unique angles about strategy, chalk talk and that sort of thing.” SNY is a far lesser platform than CBS from a national perspective, but since 2006 its Jets postgame has been a popular destination for fans – especially after frustrating losses – even as it has cycled through hosts and analysts. (Only Lucas has been there from the start.) Scott said he and his teammates watched, too. “That was the first thing that we went to, at least the first thing I went to, when I went home [after recording the show], to kind of see the highlights, see what they’re saying,” he said. “Instead of going to ESPN or anything like that, we went straight to SNY because we knew they’d be talking about us.” One of the appeals of the show has been its willingness to offer blunt, sometimes emotional criticism. Scott should fit right in. “I couldn’t care less; I’m too dumb to lie,” Scott said. “That’s my entire brain. That way you don’t have to apologize. You never have to worry about someone saying you’re flip-flopping. That’s the beauty of always saying what you feel, no matter who it is. “I consider myself a mentor to a lot of these players. I’m still in the Jets' building, but I have no problem with it at all. If somebody’s not getting it done, I’ll tell you why he didn’t get it done and I’m going to show you how he can get it done and what he has to do.” Scott was hired by WFAN last fall along with Chris Carlin and Maggie Gray to succeed Mike Francesa in afternoon drive time. Four months into the job, Francesa returned, moving “CMB” to a shorter and less prestigious 1 to 3 p.m. slot. The news came as a shock initially, but Scott believes it has benefited the show’s content. “I feel like we’re starting to find our groove and get our chemistry,” he said. “When we moved to the different time slot we weren’t so concerned with what the traditional fans of that time slot thought about us . . . We were able to do more fun things, where we could inject some of our personality and our youth and our different perspectives.” When the show was on from 2 to 6:30 p.m., he said, “You can’t just be free to do whatever you want because you have to take the fan base that had been accustomed to a certain way of listening and kind of spoon feed them slowly. We’re at the point now where . . . we do whatever want. We don’t care. We don’t apologize, and I think the fans are gravitating to it.” Scott and his colleagues are under contract through 2019. Beyond that, it is unclear what their future is at WFAN. “I just want to continue to have fun, continue to develop the craft,” he said. “The ball is in their court. I don’t know what their plans are long term. It’s a new company [Entercom]. All I can control is how we continue to grow and mesh. “One thing I do know: If I’m going to be on radio, I want to do it with those guys, because I feel like we were able to get chemistry and bond organically. I hope it comes off like we like each other. We’re able to have fun and we’re able to provide a unique perspective, which is why we were hired in the first place."
  3. Not saying he will be just like him but Jason Fabini wasn’t athletic and was moved from RT to LT and played well for a period of time. Qvale and Fabini are similar body types.

    I know he hasn't shown anything yet, but hopefully Tony Garcia can start to show something. Whether he's still still trying to get stronger, shaking off the rust from not playing last season, getting up to speed on the playbook or a combination of all three, he really could be a good boost to the OL depth.

    Baltimore Ravens (2012–2014) Gradkowski was drafted in the 4th round (98th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens. In his first season with the team, the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII. The game's MVP was Joe Flacco, who was also a transfer to the Delaware Blue Hens. With the retirement of Matt Birk following the 2012 season, Gradkowski became the starting center for the Ravens. Denver Broncos Gradkowski was traded to the Denver Broncos on April 1, 2015, for draft picks. He was waived by the Broncos on September 6. Dennison was on Ravens staff in 2014. 2015 Dennison was his OC in Denver, albeit a few months

    Maybe..But maybe Qvale can do the job..Different scheme and coaching staff...Not saying he is/can be the answer but let's see how he does the next couple of weeks. Manish Mehta‏ @MMehtaNYDN #Jets starting LT Kelvin Beachum is currently out with foot/ankle issue. He is expected to be back in time for Week 1. RG Brian Winters coming off offseason ab surgery. New center Spencer Long had 2 surgeries last year.

    Wait. Leggett is good?

    Jordan Leggett, his knee healthy, says Jets' TE involvement will 'be 100 times better' than 2017 By Darryl Slater RICHMOND, Va. -- Jets tight end Jordan Leggett is finally feeling good physically -- and also feeling as optimistic as ever about how his team might involve his position group in 2018. After a season of inconsistent tight end usage under one-and-done offensive coordinator John Morton, Leggett expects more production and targets under Jeremy Bates. "I would probably say it's going to be a hundred times better than what it was last year, on how much we're going to get targeted this year," Leggett told NJ Advance Media on Tuesday. Leggett and rookie Chris Herndon are battling for the starting tight end job in training camp. The Jets on Tuesday held their third and final joint camp practice with Washington, in advance of Thursday night's preseason game No. 2 between the teams at FedEx Field. Herndon is dealing with bruising and might not be able to play. But Leggett will, at long last. Leggett on Tuesday practiced for the second straight day, after missing a week-plus due to swelling in his surgically repaired right knee. He wore a brace on the knee, but is pleased with how it responded to practice action. He expects to play a bunch Thursday, after missing the preseason opener against the Falcons. (Herndon also missed that game.) "It's going to be a lot of reps" on offense and special teams, Leggett said. Leggett, a 2017 fifth-round draft pick, missed all of last season due to that right knee injury. He hasn't played in a game since the Jets' 2017 preseason finale against the Eagles. After Leggett practiced in this camp for the first four days, his knee swelled up. He needed to have the knee drained and needed to sit out, in order to control the swelling. "I think that's beneficial for me," Leggett said of missing practices, despite being in a position battle. "We needed to try to give [the knee] as much time as possible, to go down a little bit." But after two straight days of practice against Washington, Leggett hasn't experienced swelling. "The swelling is still chilling, so we're good," he said. "I know it'll be fine [Thursday]. [This two-practice stretch] was a challenge for my knee, to see if it was going to swell up again or if it was going to actually back me up. It did very well. "I'm excited, man. I haven't played in an NFL game in a long time. Hopefully, I can go out there and make a couple plays, score a touchdown. I've got to go out there and just make up for the time I missed." With a starting job on the line as he enters Year 2 (though he is really still a rookie), Leggett knows he can't just catch passes. "I'm trying to do it all, man," he said. "Just be a four-down tight end. One of the things I most want to focus on [Thursday] is just being to that left [blind] side of all the quarterbacks and being able to have them encouraged enough to have me back there pass protecting." Could Thursday be Leggett's springboard game to winning the tight end job over Herndon, especially if Herndon continues to miss action? Or is Herndon, who had looked strong in practice before getting hurt, still the leader for the starting role? Either way, Leggett expects Bates to heavily involve his tight ends in 2018. "I'm loving it," Leggett said of Bates' offense. "They're giving us a lot of opportunities. J.B. kept telling us, 'We're going to let you run the route until we don't think you can run it anymore.' He has a lot of faith in us. He just sees the potential at the position."
  10. More extra work For the second straight day, Pryor and intern coach Antonio Cromartie stuck around after practice to get some extra work in, with Pryor running routes and Cromartie giving him pointers on technique.

    Have to admit I thought Fowler had been more productive but after this and looking just at his stats you make a good point. Fowler missed all of '15 (ACL)...'16 he had 4 sacks, 5 pass defensed and '17 he had 8 sacks. He played in 16 games each season Ray's wrist injury is a concern though.. Shane Ray avoids surgery, might return by 2018 start July 23, 2018 The Denver Broncos could have outside linebacker Shane Ray for the regular season, after all. Ray, who was originally expected to undergo surgery on his wrist, did not require the procedure after a doctor determined it wasn't necessary, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's James Palmer reported. Rapoport added that while Ray stuck to rehabilitation and could start training camp on the physically unable to perform list, the pass-rusher might not miss the start of the regular season. Had Ray undergone the surgery, he could have missed up to three months as part of the recovery process. Ray's availability in 2018 should go a long way in determining his future in Denver. The 25-year-old Ray, who the Broncos selected in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft, enters his fourth professional season with just 13 sacks in 38 career games. The Broncos in May declined to exercise the fifth-year option on Ray after selecting Bradley Chubb as the fifth overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000941502/article/shane-ray-avoids-surgery-might-return-by-2018-start Ray had three left wrist surgeries last year that limited him to eight games and one sack. The Broncos drafted Bradley Chubb fifth overall to challenge Ray for the starting strong-side linebacker position.

    Has he really done anything especially considering he’s on the field w/Von Miller? And doesn’t he have injury concerns?

    John Elway says he might still seek a veteran backup QB The Denver Broncos might not be done shuffling backup quarterbacks, the Associated Press reports. General manager John Elway said Tuesday that he might still sign a veteran to back up starting QB Case Keenum if he doesn't feel Chad Kelly can win games in a pinch. "I'm not going to tell you we're definitely going to stand pat, but I'm not telling you we're going (in) that direction, either," Elway told 103.5 The Fox radio station in Denver. The Broncos promoted Kelly over former first-round pick Paxton Lynch this week following their contrasting performances in training camp and in the preseason opener last weekend, when Lynch threw for just 24 yards over seven series with the second string. Kelly had a pair of touchdowns in mop-up duty against the Minnesota Vikings. "We've got to have confidence that that guy that's going to be the backup can play and win football games," Elway said. "And so that's why we're still in that process of trying to see if we've got that guy behind Case. "Even though Chad played very well on Saturday night — we'll see how he does this week — but if something were to happen to Case, can he come in and continue to win football games for us?" Elway said. "That's the big part of the evaluation process and that's still going on."
