- Jets Sign Dawan Landry
Last year safety LaRon Landry decided to sign a one-year deal with the Jets so he could prove his worth on the open market this offseason. At the time LaRon told reporters that his big brother Dawan was a big reason why he decided to sign with the Jets. LaRon’s brother Dawan Landry had played [...]
- Reaction: Another Landry at safety
Quick thoughts on the Jets’ signing of former Jaguars S Dawan Landry:
1. IDEAL MARRIAGE: This deal made too much sense for it not to happen. Landry needed a job after getting cut last month, and the Jets needed a veteran safety, desperately. Landry played for Rex Ryan and Dennis Thurman with the Ravens, which means he already knows their defensive system. That’s important because their scheme is difficult to master, especially for safeties. This should help tremendously with the transition.

Height/Weight: 5-foot-8 1/2, 174 pounds

- 13th Pick For Revis Or Bust
It is hard to read about the New York Jets lately without seeing a Darrelle Revis trade rumor. The current version has the Tampa Bay Bucs unsure if they are willing to include their 1st rounder (13th overall). The Jets are reportedly insisting that the Bucs include their 1st rounder, or there will be no [...]
- Tebow Works Out With Testaverde
BayNews9 is reporting that Tim Tebow worked out at Jesuit high school with former New York Jets QB Vinny Testaverde. Tebow continues to work so he can prove he can be a pocket passer. Former Heisman Trophy winner and Florida Gators star Tim Tebow worked out privately at Jesuit High School on Monday, Jesuit public [...]
- Jeff Cumberland Signs RFA Tender
The Jets had extended a tender offer to tight end Jeff Cumberland right before free agency began. Since the Jets tendered Cumberland at the lowest level (right-of-first-refusal) they had the rights to match any offer and retain him. PFT is reporting that Jeff Cumberland has signed his tender offer with the Jets. Jets tight end Jeff [...]

- Report: Jets want 13th pick for Revis
The Jets won’t trade Darrelle Revis to the Bucs unless the compensation package includes the Bucs’ first-round draft pick (13th overall), the Tampa Bay Times reported Monday.
Jets GM John Idzik made that clear to the Bucs’ front office, according to the newspaper, which said GM Mark Dominick is hedging on whether to offer the pick.
The Bucs are almost desperate. They have a gaping hole and there are no top-flight corners remaining in the free-agent market.
- Jets set to visit with QBs Smith, Manuel
A couple of highly regarded quarterbacks are coming to town to meet with the Jets.
Florida State’s EJ Manuel will arrive Tuesday for an overnight visit, a source confirmed. West Virginia’s Geno Smith is scheduled to visit Wednesday and Thursday, according to the NFL Network. Smith is widely considered the top quarterback in the draft, and Manuel is considered by some as the next-best prospect.
The Jets came away impressed with Smith after meeting with him last month at his pro day.
- New York Jets – No Rush To Trade Darrelle Revis
The New York Jets have no need to rush anything when it comes to handling Darrelle Revis
- Why prolong the inevitable? Free Tebow
The Jets have dragged out this Tim Tebow charade long enough. It’s time to move on. To quote ESPN colleague Skip Bayless, free Tebow.
Tebow isn’t in their plans for 2013, and yet they will welcome him for the start of voluntary workouts next Monday. Even though no one would think less of him if he boycotts the workouts, Tebow is planning to attend if he’s still on the roster, a source confirmed.
Talk about awkward. There’s no point in making him walk into the locker room, knowing it’s not for long.
- Jets don’t owe Revis a dime if …
Clarifying some money matters with Darrelle Revis:
Previously, it was believed the Jets were on the hook for the $1 million roster bonus he “earned” on March 17. Remember all the attention it received that day, with stories about Revis collecting another $1 million from Woody Johnson’s bank account? Turns out the Jets aren’t responsible for the $1 million if they trade him before the regular season, according to sources. His new team (the Bucs?) would be required to make that payment.

- Jets look petty in Revis dispute
Takeaways from the Darrelle Revis dispute with the Jets over his participation in the offseason program:
1. More than anything, it demonstrates how much the relationship has deteriorated. If the two sides are squabbling over — what? — six or eight offseason workouts, how can anyone expect them to sit around a bargaining table and agree on a contract? They won’t, and the Jets don’t seem willing to try. They come off looking petty in this whole situation, enforcing technicalities in the contract and ignoring the spirit.
