- Coples Embraces Move to OLB
Florham Park, NJ- Last night a Jets fan tweeted defensive line coach Karl Dunbar asking him if the Jets were switching to a 4-3 (base) defense, Dunbar (@Kcoach99) responded “Nah we are staying 3-4 just moved QC to Rush.”
Immediately afterwards the debate broke out on Twitter about whether this was a smart move or if [...]
- Idzik On The Mike Francesa Show
John Idzik was on the Mike Francesa show and he was asked how much influence Rex Ryan had in the selection of the players during the draft? Francesa poked around asking Idzik how he felt inheriting a head coach in Rex Ryan. He was also asked: How were draft room disputes handled? How will Rex [...]
- Source: Coples moves to OLB
As far back as the scouting combine in February, Rex Ryan started dropping hints about Quinton Coples becoming more of an edge player. He’ll be on the edge, all right. Coples, used mostly as an interior lineman as a rookie, will be moved to 3-4 outside linebacker, according to a league source.
Ryan uses multiple fronts, so it’s quite possible Coples will be deployed as a down lineman in certain situations. But the plan, for now, is to stand him up.
- Source: Idzik begins post-draft shake-up
New GM John Idzik has begun to remake the Jets’ scouting department. Two longtime area scouts, Joe Bommarito and Michael Davis, won’t be back with the team, as their contracts weren’t renewed, a league source confirmed Wednesday night.
“Pay attention,” the source said, “I’m sure there will be more changes.”
Bommarito (West Coast scout) and Davis (Mid-Atlantic), both of whom are well-regarded in the scouting community, were informed after the draft of the changes.
- Sanchez Release Scenarios, Salary Cap Cost
With the recent addition of quarterback Geno Smith during this past draft there has been much speculation that Mark Sanchez the Jets starting quarterback over the past four seasons could be released. Unfortunately there is much confusion about exactly what the salary cap ramifications are if Sanchez is let go. Reports of an $8.25 million [...]

- Hot Button: Should the Jets cut Sanchez?
- Idzik: No pressure to play Geno
GM John Idzik, a guest Wednesday morning on SiriusXM NFL Radio, said the organization will be patient with rookie QB Geno Smith.
“We don’t feel like there’s any pressure to get him in there right away, especially with the cast of quarterbacks we have in the competition,” Idzik said.
Some of the pressure is alleviated because Smith is a second-round pick, not a first-rounder, but he’s still a high-profile addition on a team desperate for a quarterback answer.

- Braylon 3.0? Could be some interest
GM John Idzik and Rex Ryan went on an all-out media blitz Tuesday, with Idzik hitting four radio shows and Ryan one. They also were together for a conference call with season-ticket holders, answering questions from fans. I’m surprised they didn’t show up on “The View.”
Anyway, here are some nuggets culled from a day of listening to them spit back their talking points:
INTEREST IN BRAYLON: Idzik admitted (sort of) the Jets might have an interest in re-signing WR Braylon Edwards.
- Tebow clears waivers, becomes a free agent
As expected, former Jets QB Tim Tebow went unclaimed during the 24-hour waiver period following his release on Monday, according to a league source. As a result, Tebow is a free agent.
If a team had claimed him, it would’ve picked up Tebow’s contract, which called for him to make $1.055 million in 2013 and $895,000 in 2014 — both non-guaranteed salaries. There were, of course, others reasons why he went unclaimed. If you need an explanation, you haven’t been paying attention for the last two years.
