Today was the first day the players wore full pads this training camp, as the players have been stating, they played hard. Josh Baker left with a broken nose, Aaron Maybin had to hook up for IV treatment, and Revis sat out due to a sore hamstring.
Yesterday was a big quarterback watching day (and Mark got the best out of that), but today was all about the defense and they won the right to wear the black for tomorrow’s practice.
Attendance for today’s practice was 2,437 according to team source.
Darrelle Revis was held out of team drills and 7 on 7 today. Revis felt tightness in his hamstring last night. Revis tells reporters that he expects to be back in practice tomorrow. He made sure to shoot down conspiracy theorists saying that there is no way this was related to his contract.
Both Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow did not have a good passing day. Each finished 1-7.
Aaron Maybin played very well and continues to show that he is bigger and faster and more physical. The Jets used him as the gunner on the punt team.
A lot of the players were poking fun at Tim Tebow going shirtless yesterday in the rain. Bart Scott with a notable quote:
Bilal Powell looked VERY GOOD showing speed and taking a long run to the house.
Josh Baker left practice with a bloody nose. It was reported afterwards that he broke his nose. His chin strap stuck. OUCH.
Jeremy Kerley sat out practice again, he took some heat yesterday from Rex and how the HC is disappointed in his off season workout and said that he needs to “step up”. This may open the door for Schilens and Hill to be the outside receivers and move Holmes to slot.
Tebow was dropping the snap but Mattt Kroul was the center and was part of the problem.
David Harris said that the Defense “won” practice today and will be in the black jerseys tomorrow.
Joe McKnight looked VERY GOOD as well.
Was this really necessary? LOL
I’ve never seen anybody take their shirt off in the rain… Maybe it was holy water, I don’t know”. – Bart Scott
SethWalder: Yesterday after practice, QBs said to Tebow, “We’re just glad you kept your shirt on for this meeting.”

DeMario Davis with three sets of pads as he leaves practice. Nothing like a little summer rookie hazing. #jets#nfl http://t.co/6tDSaLOF
