MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 June 2016 - 07:15 PM) FIRE FITZPATRICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 June 2016 - 12:00 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended for 1 game for violating league substance abuse policy
ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:06 PM) The JETS shouldn't of signed wilkerson to such a big contract
ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:07 PM) he doesn't deserve $17 mil/year cause he is coming off an injury...he should of earned it by playing this year as the Franchise tag and then if he played lights out then you open the vault
MikeGangGree... Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:21 PM) WOOOOOOOO
RetireChrebet Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:58 PM) How much guaranteed money? also does this mean hes here for 6 years since he's tagged? how does that work?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (15 July 2016 - 10:20 PM) Now cut that street thug Wilkerson!!
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:47 AM) 54 million guaranteed
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:48 AM) 54 guaranteed against injury but 37 in straight guaranteed money without injury
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:49 AM) Should've waited till after the season to see how he comes off the injury but I guess they figure he wouldn't have signed if they waited another year
vjdbbq Icon : (17 July 2016 - 07:32 PM) Where is ROB and his ass ?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 July 2016 - 10:27 AM) guess that means richardson is gone after this season. Maybe we can franchise and trade him
Jetsman05 Icon : (22 July 2016 - 08:52 AM) whos running fantasy football league this year? brotana?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 July 2016 - 10:25 AM) darron lee still isn't signed... greedy street thug lol
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 July 2016 - 05:31 PM) Rich is under contract for next year and we used a team option for 17 already so he's a jet for 2 more year's for sure unless we trade him.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (23 July 2016 - 02:38 PM) We need to quit screwing around and sign Fitzpatrick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:34 AM) Jets salary cap situation is tough next season, gonna have to make adjustments
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:35 AM) the contract for Wilkerson is actually pretty good for both sides, after the first couple seasons nothing is guaranteed and they can cut him.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:36 AM) the jets probably should trade Richardson, hopefully he has a monster season and we have tons of leverage and deal him off for ransom
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:36 AM) Because we cannot afford to keep everyone on the DL
Jetsfan115 Icon : (25 July 2016 - 10:20 AM) we have 20 mil in space next offseason and not many people to sign. We should be ok next year. this year was worse. we could tag and trade richardson if need be. I think he will be gone too
vjdbbq Icon : (26 July 2016 - 07:28 AM) WE NEED FITZ WE NEED FITZ WE NEED FITZ
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 July 2016 - 09:51 AM) Yes we do need Fitz
Jetsfan115 Icon : (26 July 2016 - 10:58 AM) devin hester got cut by ATL today, anyone think we should grab him for special teams?
vjdbbq Icon : (26 July 2016 - 01:56 PM) Grab hester immediately

[b]Woody at KO Luncheon: All Coming Together[/b]
Posted 11 hours ago

[list][*][url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/news/article-1/Woody-at-KO-Luncheon-All-Coming-Together/b918b61c-0e54-48e8-a8d7-1bda775ab2b7#"]a[/url][*][url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/news/article-1/Woody-at-KO-Luncheon-All-Coming-Together/b918b61c-0e54-48e8-a8d7-1bda775ab2b7#"]a[/url][/list]For most of the New York Jets, it was a long busride into the city. Veteran linebacker [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/jason-taylor/e5748736-cb65-4593-a68a-ebabc7307502/"]Jason Taylor[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url] only needed a quick cabride. They all came to Cipriani Wall Street today to attend the 10th annual Jets Kickoff Luncheon.

For the fourth year in a row, Cipriani hosted the event, which raised money for the Jets Foundation and Alliance for Lupus Research. Jets owner Woody Johnson thanked the celebrities and donors in attendance while players and coaches mingled and dined before getting back on their buses and heading for their Philadelphia hotel in advance of Thursday night's preseason finale against the Eagles.

“It’s like the Jets, it’s like this lunch — everything is coming together for us,” Johnson said. “We have a new stadium, a new practice facility, a coach in his second year, we have Mike Tannenbaum, a great, great coaching staff, and we are poised to make something happen. I’m very proud of what we’ve done together.”

Among those in attendance were Donald Trump, a generous donor to the Alliance for Lupus Research, and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who started his NFL career as a Jets intern. In addition, New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made remarks about the Jets’ upcoming season and dedication to supporting charities throughout the tristate area.

“There’s one thing I do appreciate even more,” Bloomberg said after joking about appreciating a chance to play cornerback, “and that’s the Jets' longstanding commitment of giving back to our communities both here and across the river and around this country. Whether it is fighting childhood obesity in our schools or taking aim at the debilitating disease of lupus, they are there.”

As the host of the event, it is clear that Johnson and his family live up to that commitment on a daily basis. Johnson mentioned that his daughter was diagnosed with lupus and that prompted him to battle the disease through the Jets Foundation and ALR, which have raised more money for lupus research than any other non-governmental organization in the entire country.

“If you have any acquaintance with the Johnson family,” Christie said, “they do extraordinary things very quietly for people in need all across this region. And they do it without looking for credit, they do it because it’s the right thing to do and because they care about making my state, our region and our country a better place.”

After the remarks about the purpose of the day’s event, an inspiring video of Jets highlights from 2009 was shown, and it drew goosebumps from the members of the audience. Following the video was head coach Rex Ryan who addressed the group and “volunteered” fullback [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/tony-richardson/37339d35-8bcc-4e51-bc9f-e567fafaf067/"]Tony Richardson[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url] and safety [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/jim-leonhard/dd5683d8-73d4-4b20-afac-dfd0eed07e04/"]Jim Leonhard[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url] to speak on behalf of the offense and the defense respectively.

“This year we’re set up,” Ryan said. “We said we want to win the Super Bowl. We don’t care if you know it, like it or anything else. This time last year I kept hearing all this 'same old Jets' stuff. It’s funny, I’m not hearing that anymore. Our expectations are to win the Super Bowl and we’re going to take it any way possible.”

With a clear change of tone to football related topics, Leonhard discussed the defense, which finished first in seven statistical categories and was a unit that “no one wanted to face”. The team returns many starters but has also added threatening pieces such as Taylor, cornerback [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/antonio-cromartie/ca33331d-4119-43f8-b860-1c4e534ccb1c/"]Antonio Cromartie[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url] and safety [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/brodney-pool/ea7f383f-802f-4185-82d3-4ff11ab6a2df/"]Brodney Pool[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url].

“We feel like we’ve done everything in our ability to get to that next level, which is what we always talk about,” Leonhard said. “The organization, obviously the stadium — as players, there’s nothing more we can ask for. The organization did their part, it’s our turn to give back to them. So we’ve put in a lot of hard work.”

Richardson, one of the Jets' elder statesmen, discussed the offense’s general plan for this season. With the addition of [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/ladainian-tomlinson/fef12a80-4e41-42b2-a86f-850b85bbc876/"]LaDainian Tomlinson[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url], former league MVP and future Hall of Famer, and former Super Bowl MVP [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/santonio-holmes/bc286762-6be0-4adf-b44f-2f723f0f17aa/"]Santonio Holmes[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url], the offense is poised to be highly productive. In a perfect summation of the day’s celebration, Richardson talked about the Jets’ abilities with the pads on and also out in the community.

"We’re going to work really, really hard this year," he said. "We have goals set out in front of us and we have a tremendous group of players who are committed to doing the right things both on and off the football field."
