Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 May 2016 - 10:28 AM) jets offered fitz 3 years 24 million dollar deal. 12 million for 2016 and 6 million each for 2017 and 2018. fitz is unhappy with the 2017 and 2018 number
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 01:45 PM) Street thug
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 01:47 PM) I really don't like Devin Smith he cost us 2 games last season with his hands of stone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) he's a rookie
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) i'm more concerned we really don't have a slot WR. all of our guys are outside guys
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) i wonder if amaro is gonna be a big slit guy and blocker for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) slot
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 09:22 PM) Sources told NY daily news.Fitzpatrick is about to sign 1 year deal
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 10:06 PM) We didn't have a slot WR last year also. I do Amaro steps up I really do like him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 June 2016 - 09:46 AM) Ok so the jets won't take the deal. My question is why?? 1 year 12 million when they are already offering him 12 million in his first year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:24 PM) 2 reasons, 1st off for salary cap relief this year. we have no cap room this year but plenty next year. a multi year deal and backload the contract and 2, why pay a guy 12 mil for 1 year with no guarentee and go thorugh this again
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:24 PM) fitz said he'd take a 1 year deal but jets don't want that
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:25 PM) they should offer him a 3 years for 30 mil. 12 this year (half in the signing bonus for cap relief) 10 mil next year and 8 mil the 3rd year. 1st 2 years guarenteed (22 mil)
RetireChrebet Icon : (03 June 2016 - 03:37 AM) You know your fucked when the biggest offseason story is can we convince a journeyman QB whom singlehandedly threw us out of the playoffs last year to sign a deal worth way more than his actual value!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 09:59 AM) Ok jets brothers I need fantasy football help. Who should I keep in my keepers league. We have to decide by July
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:00 AM) Should I keep Cam Gurley or Bell?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:01 AM) Cam had a monster year last year and in our league it's 6 points per PassTd and cam is getting his best WR back.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:01 AM) Gurley was a monster last year as a rookie
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:03 AM) Bell missed most of the year with a injury but it's also a PPR league. In only 6 games last year he =100 points
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:04 AM) Cam also had 45 total TDs last year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) I'd keep bell
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) there are maybe like 5 #1 fantasy RBs at best and you need to start at least 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) QBs are easier to find. I had cam in 2 leagues and drafted him way late. RBs are impossible to find late
MikeGangGree... Icon : (04 June 2016 - 07:53 PM) FIRE FITZPATRICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (04 June 2016 - 07:53 PM) That Damn dirty street thug
MikeGangGree... Icon : (05 June 2016 - 09:43 PM) In other news the NBA finals is like A NFL team Playing a college football team.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (06 June 2016 - 11:23 AM) line is in. jets are favorites for 5 games, pick for 2, and underdog for 9
MikeGangGree... Icon : (08 June 2016 - 04:56 PM) We play better as a underdog
santana Icon : (12 June 2016 - 03:54 PM) JETS JETS JETS
santana Icon : (13 June 2016 - 09:28 AM) Update on the #Jets situation with Ryan Fitzpatrick: Nothing. … Just nothing. Doesn't seem like things will change heading into minicamp.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 June 2016 - 10:39 AM) yeah every day i check for an update and every day, nothing

Antonio Cromartie newfound leader of Jets secondary

The back end of the Jets defense just learned each other’s names a few weeks ago. They’re going to get a lot closer a lot faster over the next couple weeks.

The Jets secondary last year and this year looks nothing like each other. This offseason, the team traded star cornerback Darrelle Revis and it declined to bring back the Top-3 safeties from last year’s team, meaning the secondary is not only younger but also hasn’t worked together. To solve this problem, cornerback Antonio Cromartie is hosting several members of the unit in California over the next few weeks. The workouts will take the unit from the end of minicamp through training camp in late July.

The players will live and train together, hopefully accelerating their understanding on and off the field.

“Josh Bush and those guys came to me and said, ‘Hey, look, everybody is saying you’re in the best shape so we’re coming out there with you,’” Cromartie said.

Cromartie will have his personal trainer there to run the conditioning and the schedule has already been set for a month now. Monday will be the endurance session, including workouts such as pulling sleds and flipping tires. Tuesday is slotted for agility and field work day. Wednesday combines boxing with yoga. Thursday is on the field and Friday is running in the mountains or canyons of California.

The unit is hoping to build a camaraderie that can help them jell in training camp a month later. Part of that will be establishing leaders among the group.

Second-year safety Josh Bush has stepped up as one of those players. Bush played in all 16 games last season but made just 11 tackles. Those are not exactly the kind of numbers that point toward a starting role, let alone the making of a leader on the defense. But through the first two days of minicamp, Bush has been running with the first team and has been active in calling out the coverages.

“Last year I was getting reps with the first team too. Guys like Eric Smith, LaRon Landry and Yeremiah Bell had me out there learning because they said someday I’d be in that role,” Bush said. “I remember Eric Smith telling me that one day, that I’d have to be in his shoes and teach the younger guys. Eric played everything; he was the guy you wanted to ask if you had a question on the defense. He told me I needed to be that guy someday.”

Bush said that it was defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman who recommended he work out with Cromartie this offseason to get ready for training camp.

The final headcount for Cromartie’s camp is unknown but the secondary is buzzing about the workouts and the chance to get to learn the defense better. Wide receiver Stephen Hill is expected to join the unit to get some work in against the group.

The camp won’t be as high profile as the Jets West event run by quarterback Mark Sanchez but the mindset is clear cut.

“Team unity, working together, competing and just being together, that’s what it is all about,” cornerback Kyle Wilson said. “It’s really simple, to just be putting in that work before the start of training camp.”

Good for Cro - he's matured a lot during his time with the Jets, and with Revis (and Landry and Bell too) gone he's now the natural leader in the secondary. Therefore it's great that he's not shying away from that responsibility.

The starting safety spot opposite Dawan Landry to me will be the most interesting position battle in camp. Bush and Allen have received positive reviews from the coaches since the end of the season and with Bush being given the responsibility of helping call out the coverages with the first team, that can only be a positive.
