Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) sounds like the jets think kerly is too small for what they want
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:13 AM) if enunwa is our 3rd WR that gives us 3 starting Wrs over 6-2. compared to the 5'7 kerly.
RetireChrebet Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:32 PM) Hopefully enunwa pans out. The jets need to start catching talent in he late rounds like most successful teams do.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (21 August 2015 - 03:05 PM) MT did for us
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 06:49 PM) Well it's only pre season but I don't enjoy watching them walk right over our defense
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) Looks like nothing has changed from the last 5 years. Our offense is still trash
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Damn petty has a rocket arm!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:54 PM) Kellen Davis sucks
Mr_Jet Icon : (22 August 2015 - 12:40 PM) Bryce Petty looked really good last night.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 04:56 PM) He took some big steps from week one. There is no question. If he continues to progress like that we may be chanting for him sooner than expected. I love his arm.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 06:56 PM) Sanchez looks like Drew Bree's today
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 August 2015 - 01:24 PM) WOOOOOOOO Ric Flair!
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) The guy in the fantasy league who said we're scared of Santana... is clearly santana.
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) just sayin
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) im only half serious
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 09:30 AM) Also i suspect that santana
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 09:30 AM) might be santana
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 01:35 PM) Tough draw for Liverpool
Jetsman05 Icon : (27 August 2015 - 02:21 PM) Suarez second best in Europe... pretty good
SoReALSoJetS Icon : (29 August 2015 - 06:11 PM) anybody know a stream for it?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:49 AM) WOOOOO
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:10 AM) Jets just announced first 12 players to be released:
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:10 AM) T. J. Graham, Saalim Hakim, Austin Hill, DeVier Posey, Jonathon Rumph (WRs), Matt LaCosse (TE), James Brewer, Dalton Freeman (OL), Bryan Johnson (LB), Javier Arenas, Curtis Brown, Keith Lewis (DBs)
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:11 AM) A little surprised that Posey is gone in this first batch of moves, but then we did have a glut of WRs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:50 PM) Any word on Leonard Williams injury?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 11:49 PM) He will be ready week 1. Just a sprain
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 10:33 AM) so we whooped the giants ass pretty badly
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 10:38 AM) bills cut fred jackson
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:29 PM) We got lucky with Williams
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:30 PM) Hes looked like a beast as well, so we need him healthy. Hes gonna be a future all pro
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:31 PM) Our offense can be competent this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:33 PM) Zac Stacy was a good add
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:46 PM) I'm surprised Freeman was cut, I thought he was a solid backup center. Guess they like Wesley Johnson better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 01:58 PM) our offense is passable. we should put up 14-17 a game average
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 01:58 PM) should be enough for our Defense. our d-line is nasty with wilk, rich, snacks, and now williams
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 01:59 PM) out MLBs get picked on in coverage though. davis had a rough game
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 01:59 PM) our Cbs are way too good. cro revis and skrine. plus mcdougle looked solid. when milliner comes back, him being a dime back could be huge too
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 02:24 PM) 17 points a game is "passable"? If we average 17 a game this season, we won't win more than 5 ball games.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 02:24 PM) Needs to be 20+
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:33 PM) Our offense should be better than its been in years
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:34 PM) which wouldn't take much

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- The New York Jets and first-round draft pick Darrelle Revis were closing in on a deal Tuesday night, ending the touted cornerback's lengthy training camp holdout.

"We've made major, substantial progress," Revis' agent, Neil Schwartz, told The Associated Press. "We're working on it right now."

Schwartz and Revis were at the Jets' headquarters at Hofstra University discussing a deal with general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Schwartz was uncertain if an agreement would be struck sometime Tuesday night or early Wednesday.

"That, I don't know," Schwartz said. "I don't want to put the cart before the horse, but we're working. We're making progress."

A joint statement released by the team, Tannenbaum, Schwartz and his partner, Jonathan Feinsod, said that talks were moving along.

"We are working hard to reach an agreement and we will continue working as long as it takes to get the deal done," the statement said. "We are planning on meeting through the night and our intent is to meet until an agreement has been reached."

Revis, taken 14th overall after New York traded up to select him, became the Jets' first unsigned pick at the start of training camp since linebacker James Farrior in 1997. He has missed 21 practices and the team's preseason opener last Friday against Atlanta since camp opened on July 27.

The holdup in the negotiations reportedly stemmed from the length of the contract. The Jets are looking to sign Revis to a six-year deal, while the cornerback wants a five-year contract.

Once he signs, the Jets expect Revis to compete for the starting job at right cornerback, a position Justin Miller, David Barrett, Hank Poteat and Drew Coleman all took turns at last season. He could also serve as the team's punt returner.

Revis was considered one of the best overall cornerbacks in the draft, and had an outstanding college career at the University of Pittsburgh, finishing with 129 tackles and eight interceptions.

If he signs soon, the only first-round holdout would be top overall pick JaMarcus Russell, the LSU quarterback selected by Oakland.
