Fate Could Hinge On Laveranues Coles

Saturday, May 10th 2008, 11:54 am by Gary Grund

Former New York Times writer Clifton Brown, now of the Sporting News, has written an interesting article deeming seven veteran offensive players that will need bounce back seasons for their respective teams to have success. Among one of the seven that Brown lists is Jets wide receiver Laveranues Coles.

Laveranues Coles, WR, New York Jets. His 55 catches were the fewest since his rookie year in 2000. It wasn

Don Banks writes that the 80 man roster limit is causing some issues among NFL teams.

You may not have heard much hue and cry yet about the freezing of the camp rosters at 80, but trust us, you will. The league

Jets Are Fourth Youngest Team In League

Friday, May 09th 2008, 8:00 am by Gary Grund

On the NFL Network show Total Access, a stat appeared on the screen showing the average ages for the NFL teams. Since the retirement of Brett Favre, the Packers have now become the youngest team in the league at 25 years and 300 days. The Jets checked in at No. 4 overall with an average age of 26 years and 115 days. The NFL Network only showed the top seven teams on the list.

1 - Green Bay Packers-25 years, 300 days

2 - Buffalo Bills-26 years, 66 days

3 - Atlanta Falcons-26 years, 96 days

4 - New York Jets-26 years, 115 days

5 - Indianapolis Colts-26 years, 125 days

6 - Miami Dolphins-26 years, 147 days

7 - San Diego Chargers-26 years, 190 days

Three teams in the AFC East are in the top seven. I would have liked to have seen where the Patriots ranked on this list.

Ravens Get Into Big Brawl at Minicamp

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (May 10) - The Baltimore Ravens are doing more than merely fighting for jobs at their first mandatory minicamp under new coach John Harbaugh. They're fighting each other, too.

Bad Blood Between Teammates

New Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh has a very rough experience during his first minicamps with the team. Nearly all 85 players in camp are involved in a brawl after two tackles throw punches. Click through to see some of the other terrible teammates in sports history.

Nearly all 85 players in camp were involved in a squabble Saturday that began when offensive tackle Oniel Cousins and defensive tackle Amon Gordon threw punches after running back Allen Patrick was taken down hard on a burst up the middle. All the players surged toward the middle of the field, and it was nearly two minutes before peace was restored.

"Guys are competing, so tempers flare a little bit," Harbaugh said.

Later during practice, which was held indoors because of rain, defensive backs Corey Ivy and Frank Walker came to blows during a blocking drill.

"Don't grab me, man!" Ivy yelled.

After the players were separated, veteran cornerbacks Chris McAlister and Samari Rolle spoke with Walker, who signed as a free agent during the offseason after playing with Green Bay in 2007.

"Chill out, man," Rolle said. "There's too much at stake."

For the first time in a decade, the Ravens are conducting a minicamp without Brian Billick, who was fired in January after a nine-year run. There are jobs at stake and a new offense to learn under Cam Cameron, which has fueled emotions at the three-day camp that started Friday. The players aren't wearing pads, but there's plenty of hitting going on - much of it after the whistle.

"Man, it's intense out there," tight end Todd Heap said. "Everybody's trying to learn what's going on and everybody's a little bit on edge."

In a way, that's how Harbaugh likes it. Seeing two players fight on the practice field is nothing new, but to have the rest of the team join the fray is a sight not often seen on the football field. Yet none of the coaches immediately sought to restore peace, and defensive coordinator Rex Ryan was actually laughing as he stood in the background.
