- Geno makes debut, won’t fire back at critics
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — After two weeks of intense scrutiny, QB Geno Smith made his Jets debut Friday in rookie minicamp, surviving his first practice without any major mistakes and claiming afterward that none of the criticism has affected him.
“Obviously, there’s been a lot of talk in the media,” the second-round pick told reporters after a two-hour session on the field. “But for me, it’s just been being my normal, old self, handling my business the way I always have.
- G Will Campbell inks four-year contract
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets’ rookie signings keep rolling in.

Campbell, who played defensive tackle in college, is attempting to transition to the offensive side.

- Draft close-up: CB Dee Milliner
Wrapping up our close ups …
Player: Dee Milliner, first round
Projected impact: You don’t pick a player ninth overall and expect him to sit on the bench. Milliner will start opposite Antonio Cromartie, it’s just a matter of when. A lot could hinge on his health, as he underwent labrum surgery in March. That could keep him out of full drills until training camp, so we’re talking about potential conditioning issues.
- Reports: Jets Sign Winters & Bohanon
There are several reports stating that the Jets have signed two of their recent draft picks. Offensive lineman Brian Winters was selected in the third round and fullback Tommy Bohanon was taken in the seventh round. Confirming, per sources, that Jets have signed third-round pick OL Brian Winters and seventh-round FB Tommy Bohanon — J.P. [...]
- Two draft picks agree to deals
Two down, five draft picks to go.
The Jets agreed to terms Thursday with two draft picks — third-round guard Brian Winters of Kent State and seventh-round fullback Tommy Bohanon of Wake Forest, league sources confirmed. Winters will receive a four-year contract for $2.8 million; Bohanon will sign for $2.2 million over four years.
Winters started at left tackle last season, but he’s projected inside for the Jets, who will have two new guards after losing Matt Slauson (Bears) and Brandon Moore (unsigned).
- W2W4: Heeere’s Geno!
The Jets open a three-day rookie minicamp Friday in Florham Park, N.J., and there will be no shortage of storylines:
1. Geno, meet the microscope: After two weeks of intense, post-draft scrutiny, QB Geno Smith finally gets a chance to play football. Nothing he does over the next three days will determine his 2013 role, but this is his first opportunity to answer his critics — on and off the field. He’ll be on his best behavior, of course, because he knows he’ll get skewered if he coasts through a drill or snaps at a teammate.
- Draft close-up: DT Sheldon Richardson
The rookie minicamp begins Friday, so we’re catching you up with the Jets’ draft picks:
Player: Sheldon Richardson, first round
Position: Defensive tackle
Projected impact: Barring an upset, Richardson should be the opening-day starter in Mike DeVito’s old position, defensive tackle in the 3-4 front. He’ll bring more athleticism to the position than DeVito, but Richardson must adapt to a two-gap scheme. That can be frustrating for a young lineman who played in a one-gap, 4-3 scheme in college.
