- Geno Smith Will Attend Jets West If Asked
The NY Post has an update on the “no comment” that Geno Smith gave this week when he was asked if he would attend Jets West camp. On Wednesday, Smith gave a “no comment” when asked if he would attend the camp Sanchez holds annually in Southern California. That was read as Smith possibly skipping [...]
- Battle between safeties: It’s on!
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — One of the intriguing position battles for the Jets this summer will be at safety, as the team is in need of two new starters.
Newcomer Dawan Landry appears to be the favorite for one spot, and the other starting position appears to be a battle between 2012 late-round draft picks Josh Bush and Antonio Allen. Former Eagles second-round pick Jaiquawn Jarrett also figures to be in the mix as well.
Allen had been working with the first team during OTAs, but he found himself working with the second string during this week’s minicamp, which concluded Thursday.

- What we learned on Day 3 of minicamp
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Thoughts and observations from the final day of the mandatory minicamp:
1. A cry for help: For the second straight day, Rex Ryan bemoaned the performance of his receiving corps. This time, it wasn’t unsolicited, but he took the question and ran with it, saying, “It has to get better” — along with a lot of other stuff. It almost seemed like he was trying to send a message to GM John Idzik, the man in charge of finding players.

- Idzik defends Garrard, Goodson signings
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — John Idzik’s first two free-agent signings didn’t turn out well. Aging QB David Garrard, with a bone-on-bone condition in his knee, couldn’t make it to minicamp and retired. RB Mike Goodson, who arrived with a checkered past, got arrested on drug and weapons charges.
Idzik, speaking to the media Thursday for the first time in a month, defended the signings.
“I know there’s a perception from the outside, but we know what goes on on the inside,” he said.
- Jets WestGate: Damage control
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Geno Smith said he has no problem with Mark Sanchez and will attend his upcoming camp — if he’s invited.
In damage control a day after his cryptic no-comments fueled speculation of a rift with Sanchez, Smith called the mini-controversy over “Jets West” a simple misunderstanding.
Smith wasn’t scheduled to speak to the media on the final day of minicamp, but the public relations staff gathered reporters in the locker room so he could “clarify” his remarks from the previous day.
- Wilson having great offseason
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — As the Jets prepare to integrate first-round pick Dee Milliner into their secondary, Kyle Wilson is keeping his attention strictly on him own progress. No matter the team’s vision for Milliner, Wilson isn’t getting caught up in how that will affect his role with the team.
“Right now my focus is it doesn’t matter to me who’s here and who’s not here,” Wilson said. “I don’t think anything is going to change the way I go out there and perform on the field.
- Practice notes: The Wildcat lives
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Thoughts and observations from the third and final day of mandatory minicamp:
1. Ah, memories: One year after Tim Tebow, the Jets devoted an entire team period to the Wildcat. It probably was the heaviest dose of Wildcat in, like, forever. They used a variety of formations with a variety of Wildcat quarterbacks. David Lee’s fingerprints were all over this practice. Lee, the quarterbacks coach, is generally regarded as one of the Wildcat pioneers.
