- Rex report: Coach compares Coples to JPP
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Rex Ryan just raised the bar for rookie DE Quinton Coples.
The Jets’ coach, still glowing (and crowing) over Coples’ impressive debut last Friday night in Cincinnati, said Monday that his No. 1 draft pick has “measurables” similar to those of Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul.
A pretty lofty comparison.

Rex Ryan raved about rookie DE Quinton Coples’ measurables Monday.
“It’s funny, when you look at the numbers when Pierre-Paul came out and when Quinton Coples came out, the measurables are almost identical, except that Quinton is an inch taller and 20 pounds heavier,” Ryan said.

- Morning wake-up call: Day 19
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Monday’s practice is closed to the public. The Jets return to their regular, early-morning time.
Some of the players and stories in the spotlight will be Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow (both available to the media), WR Santonio Holmes (when is he returning from the rib injury?), WR Jeremy Kerley (slowly getting back into the flow after a slight tear to his hamstring) and NT Sione Pouha (still out after gashing his forehead).
- No interest in Chad Johnson
CORTLAND, N.Y. — The Jets could use a veteran wide receiver, and a well-known receiver just hit the market Sunday — Chad Johnson, who was cut by the Dolphins.
Could the Jets make a play for him? This much I can tell you: The chances of that happening are remote.
Johnson, a six-time Pro Bowl receiver hanging on the last two seasons, was released by the Dolphins about 24 hours after he was arrested and charged with domestic battery. He might have been an intriguing option a year or two ago for the Jets, but not anymore.
- Notes from Jets Training Camp — August 12th
The Jets returned to practice today, and after Friday’s showing, it’s clear they have a lot of work to do to prepare for the annual Jets-Giants preseason showdown on Saturday. (Not to mention the start of the regular season). There were two big story lines from today, one involving – you guessed it – Tim [...]

- Three things we learned on Day 18
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Observations from Sunday at training camp:
1. Quarterbacks use the binky in Cincy. The “binky,” according to coordinator Tony Sparano, is the play-sheet wristband. He doesn’t want his QBs to get attached to the binky, so they went the first two weeks in camp without it. That way, Sparano figured, it would force them to learn the verbiage of his system. For the preseason opener, the QBs went to the binky for in-game reference. Sparano said they haven’t decided yet if Mark Sanchez will use it in the regular season.
- Sparano: We pushed around Bengals
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Tony Sparano is a fiery, no-nonsense kind of guy, but he wasn’t breathing fire about the Jets’ shaky offensive performance in the preseason opener. Just the opposite, actually.
The offensive coordinator defended the running game and insisted there weren’t as many pass-protection issues as the stat sheet suggested. Asked about the breakdowns, Sparano interjected, “Not breakdowns. There was one protection breakdown.”
He was referring to a strip sack of Greg McElroy in the fourth quarter, one of five sacks allowed by the Jets.
- Rolle: Saturday won’t be about Tebow
ALBANY, N.Y. — The Giants returned to their the SUNY Albany campus to resume preparing for the regular season. Given that the team’s next opponent is the Jets on Saturday at MetLife Stadium, the name Tim Tebow came up during Antrel Rolle’s news conference.
Isn’t the Giants safety a little curious to see the Jets’ backup quarterback?
“No,” Rolle answered. “Just go out there and play the game. It’s not going to be about Tebow. It’s about us.”
