- 2013 NFL Draft: 4 Round Jets Mock
The 2013 NFL Draft is right around the corner, and more and more research is happening between the draft staff. Some recurring questions focusing on the Jets seem to be coming about, including the following: Who should the Jets take? Where is the best value? Who should they look at in the middle rounds? In what …
- Health of the Game : Project Revis – Part 4
Andrea Kremer has the latest update on New York Jets cornerback Darrell Revis as he rehabs from ACL surgery.
- Jets Offer Jeff Cumberland $1.32 Million Tender
According to Connor Orr of The Star-Ledger the Jets have reportedly “made a qualifying offer,” to Jeff Cumberland at a “low-level tender that will cost the team $1.32 million.” This type of low-level tender does not allow for the Jets to receive a draft pick if another team signs Cumberland, it would simply give the Jets [...]
- Mornhinweg: More to QB than percentage
New general manager John Idzik has made it clear he wants to bring in competition for embattled starter Mark Sanchez, and now new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has given some idea of what he wants in a quarterback during an interview on the team’s official website, NewYorkJets.com.
And it’s not about completion percentage. “No, absolutely not,” Mornhinweg said.
“Some of the great ones have really not thrown for such a great accuracy,” Mornhinweg said.
- Jets 2013 Mock Draft and Analysis
The New York Jets have an immense amount of needs to address on Draft Day. The following is an analysis of these needs and potential prospects to fill them: Defensively: They have to replace two outside linebackers, corner and likely a safety, not to mention add a pass rusher off the edge to help solidify [...]
- Will Holmes take a pay cut?
One of the mini-dramas that will play out over the next few days is the status of WR Santonio Holmes, who was approached by the team more than a week ago to re-work his contract. The two sides are still talking, according to a source, with the Jets insisting that he reduce his $11 million base salary. The team needs the cap space as it heads into free agency.
This should be interesting.
It’s a bit complicated because Holmes is guaranteed $7.5 million whether he’s on the team or not, but there’s language in his contract that prevents him from exceeding $7.
- Another potential QB bites the dust
Scratch Matt Moore from the Jets’ list of potential quarterback targets.
The Dolphins’ backup re-signed Friday morning, according to NFL.com, opting to remain Ryan Tannehill’s understudy instead of venturing out into the free-agent market in search of a starting job.
Honestly, I’m not sure the Jets would’ve been a strong suitor even though Moore was considered by many the best quarterback in a weak free-agent crop. The contract numbers haven’t been reported yet, but quarterbacks of his ilk (see Chad Henne, Kyle Orton from last year) are getting at least $3 million a year.
- Revis update: The knee, not the trade
Darrelle Revis is running again — only a treadmill, but at least he’s running.
Revis, whose recovery from major knee surgery is being documented by the NFL Network, started on the treadmill Monday. He ran unloaded, which means there were 45 pounds lifted off him. That will be reduced as his rehab continues. Revis hopes to start running outside in four to six weeks, conveniently right before the draft. If the star cornerback gets traded, it likely would occur close to the draft.

- Thurman’s play-calling role yet to be defined
The Jets’ defensive playcalling last season was a collaborative effort between Rex Ryan and Mike Pettine. Pettine is gone, replaced by longtime secondary coach Dennis Thurman. So the new playcaller is … yet to be determined.
“Rex and I really haven’t talked about it,” the new defensive coordinator said in an interview with team media. “I have no problem if he wants to call it. If we do it like we’ve done in the past, my input will always be there.
