Wed, 9 Aug 2006 15:13:21 -0700

New York Jets RB Curtis Martin (knee) said he is not considering retirement and added that he is working out as hard as he can. "I am here every single day," said Martin. "I am probably up here more than a lot of the other players because I am doing extra work." Martin said he is working out in hopes of playing this year, but would not talk about the condition of his knee. He did say that he has not had another surgery and has no plans to have any more surgeries on the knee before he returns. "I don't know what exactly will happen," Martin said. "I just keep preparing to be my best. It is what it is. Obviously I have missed some training camp, but I can't do anything about what I missed, but when I get back, I get back and I will take it from there."

Wed, 9 Aug 2006 15:12:22 -0700

New York Jets head coach Eric Mangini said that if SS Erik Coleman (appendectomy) comes back and performs better than the other contenders at the strong safety position, then he would be the starter. "One of the things I told you guys is that nobody has a lock on the starting job and I think that we've got a great amount time here in training camp for Erik or any of the other players coming off injury to re-establish their position or to establish their position," Mangini told the media Wednesday, Aug. 9.

Jets | Dwight's experience proving to be valuable

Wed, 9 Aug 2006 15:12:19 -0700

New York Jets head coach Eric Mangini said WR Tim Dwight's experience with the San Diego Chargers "has been valuable to the whole receiving core and even to some degree the quarterbacks and to myself, because anytime you have a player who is familiar with the system and understands expectations, it helps."

Jets | Miller improving technique

Wed, 9 Aug 2006 15:11:37 -0700

New York Jets head coach Eric Mangini said he feels CB Justin Miller has improved his technique. "He needs to keep developing in terms of being a technician, understanding where his help is, and understand where he fits in with the defense. Once he understands that element of it and combines it with his natural ability, I think that he's got great upside."

Jets | Mangini not curious to see Pennington, QBs get hit

Wed, 9 Aug 2006 15:11:22 -0700

New York Jets head coach Eric Mangini said he is not curious to see what will happen when QB Chad Pennington (shoulder) gets hit for the first time since injuring his rotator cuff last September. "I'm not curious about that," Mangini said. "I'm curious about how those guys block for all the quarterbacks. I honestly would much prefer that none of the quarterbacks get hit. I really don't want any of them to get hit."

Jets | Robertson performing well

Wed, 9 Aug 2006 15:10:33 -0700

New York Jets head coach Eric Mangini said DL Dewayne Robertson has performed well at the different techniques. "He's really embraced getting better as a technician and I've been pleased with his work ethic at practice," said Mangini. "Like anybody else, there have been a couple of steps forward and a step back here and there, but he's been consistently working at getting better at the position."
