- Winslow could become official
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Kellen Winslow turned his audition into an extended stay — or at least that’s how it might happen. The Jets would like to sign the veteran free agent to a contract, and there’s a good chance that will happen soon.

Florham Park, NJ- Rex Ryan was not pleased with the amount of drops the team had during Tuesday’s practice and he expected yesterday’s practice to be much better.

- What we learned on Day 2 of minicamp
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — A few takeaways from Wednesday:
1. Winslow a keeper: Free agent TE Kellen Winslow, Jr., attending minicamp on a tryout basis, has done enough to earn a contract. No one is saying he’s … well, Kellen Winslow, Sr. — or a young Junior, for that matter — but he’s a functional tight end with some receiving skills. That’s good enough for this team. Interesting scene: Winslow and QB Matt Simms, sons of football royalty, have side-by-side lockers and chat every day.
- QB coach to Sanchez: Stop fumbling
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — David Lee calls it “The Sanchez Drill.” The quarterback carries the ball through a gauntlet of six or seven people, all of them swinging foam bats in an attempt to dislodge the ball. The idea is to promote ball security, forcing the quarterback to use two hands.
“He doesn’t like [the name of the drill],” Lee said, referring to Mark Sanchez.
Lee created the name because, well, Sanchez fumbles a lot — 24 over the past two seasons, including the infamous Butt Fumble.
- QB coach: Simms has best arm on Jets
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The most valuable piece of advice Matt Simms ever got from his dad?
“Don’t throw it to the other team.”
It means a little bit more when you know his dad is Giants legend Phil Simms. But pedigree or no pedigree, Matt got a bump Wednesday from new Jets quarterback coach David Lee. This is the second offseason Simms has been with the team, and this year he is third behind Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith as they compete for the starting spot.
- Holmes on Holmes: You have to sacrifice
Santonio Holmes isn’t sure he will be on the field in Week 1, but he thinks Mark Sanchez will be the team’s starting quarterback either way. The wide receiver spoke today on a range of issues beyond his foot rehabilitation and support for Sanchez during the Jets’ mandatory minicamp.
Holmes was directed by the Jets to take a pay cut during the offseason, giving up $3.5 million of his base salary to remain with the team. He will make $7.5 million instead this season.
- Practice notes: ‘Stephen, Stephen, Stephen’
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Thoughts and observations from Day 2 of minicamp:
1. Another bad day for receivers: Before practice, Rex Ryan expressed his displeasure with the receiving corps, mentioning all the drops from Tuesday’s practice. So how did they respond? With another shaky performance. Stephen Hill, Jeff Cumberland and Jeremy Kerley were among those with dropped passes. Hill’s drops were particularly galling. One came on an end-zone pass in a 7-on-7 drill, and there was another blatant drop in a team drill.
