QuoteJets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr aims to catch close to 100 balls in 2013
BY Manish Mehta
MISSION VIEJO, Calif. -- Kellen Winslow, Jr., only played in a handful of snaps last season, but the former Pro Bowl tight end has set some lofty goals for himself with the Jets.
“I averaged around 72 (catches per season over my career),” Winslow said on Friday. “My job is to just make plays. When it comes my way, just make the play. I can exceed that. My goal is always to catch 100 balls. Haven’t done it yet, but that’s my goal. I want to come close.”
The Jets signed Winslow, who has 438 career receptions, including 75 in his last full season (2011), after his three-day tryout at minicamp last month. Winslow, who will turn 30 in a couple weeks, only had one reception last season before the Patriots released him. Rex Ryan praised Winslow’s skillset during minicamp, but the biggest question centers on the veteran’s ability to stay healthy. Winslow has been plagued by troublesome knees in the past few years.
It’s the likely the Jets will manage his workload when training camp begins in a couple weeks.
“I’m sure they have a plan for me,” said Winslow, who warmed up and cooled down at Mark Sanchez’s annual Jets West passing camp by biking a few laps around the track. “I’ll be in shape. They’ll take care of me.”
The Jets turned to Winslow to bolster a thin and inexperienced tight end corps that includes Jeff Cumberland and Konrad Reuland.
“I feel the same like every year,” Winslow said. “Nothing has really changed. It’s all about maintaining and keeping my legs strong. I feel good. This is a great opportunity for me.”
“I’m just coming in trying to be a piece to the puzzle and make plays for the team,” he later added. “I’m lucky to have a job so I’m just happy to be back.”
While players like Geno Smith opted to skip Mark Sanchez’s annual Jets West passing camp, it hold plenty of valuable for Winslow.
“I’m behind in the offense,” Winslow said. “I had a three-day minicamp. So I got to catch up. This is good for me learning the offense and seeing what Mark’s about and how he handles himself. I’m real impressed.”
He's going to need someone to throw to him. Just sayin'

Quote3) Antonio Cromartie, CB, New York Jets: You think of him as the cat who struggled to name all his kids on "Hard Knocks." But if you've been watching Cromartie over the past few years, you've seen a guy develop into a truly great corner who merited serious consideration for first-team All-Pro honors last season. And Cromartie also has become a leader for the Jets. He was the glue when Darrelle Revis was hurt last year. This offseason, it was Cromartie who organized detailed workouts on the West Coast for his teammates. That's a far cry from the immaturity he displayed earlier in his career.
The Jets lack overall talent, but cornerback should be a position of strength even after they traded Revis away, assuming Cromartie can duplicate his efforts.
He's definitely matured since he's been here. I hope there is more great things to come.
Posted 19 Jan 2013It's out there... I know. Me and a friend of mine were discussing this. Thoughts?
Posted 19 Jan 2013THIS SEASON!! and yea...many of you know I've been down on Sanch since day 1 but after the butt fumble? fuhgettaboutit. Wont waste another key stroke talking about his pathetic ass and I won't say I told you so. I think it's been pretty self explanatory till this point.
I've seen some bad Jets years seasons but to me this was excruciating because I knew this was going to happen. All the fluff Rexy spewed out over the 4 years, the cap hell and musical chairs with Tannenbaum. The Tim Tebow signing. I knew we were doomed from the onset and for the record. I'm no Tebow fan but what the Jets did to his career is inexcusable. This organization has no class and if you ask me their a bunch of buffons, incapable of anything competent. Their owned by a figure head who has ulterior motives and plans for this organization and I don't like it. It's revolting. As someone who has followed this team under a microscope diligently over the last 10 year I can honestly say I could care less who they hire as a GM. I don't give two f*cks about the GM search and never cared to follow. SHOW ME SOMETHING OF SOME SUBSTANCE. Until then I'm following this sorry excuse for a franchise from the perimeter. I can't stomach this trash.
These Jets are a complete joke. Rex NEEEEEEEEEEDS!!!! a GM and people around him who "run the show" and just let the knucklehead coach. Just like in Baltimore. He just coached and the higher ups did what they felt was appropriate at the time as he was coaching whoever the org brought in. Rex is just a coach that is it. Maybe just a coordinator.
This team has made so many awful decisions and drafted so damn poorly its almost embarrassing.
This has been the 1st time in 15-17 years I've been so disjointed with this team and the funny thing is. I just don't give a damn. Sick of the bullshit.
I needed a mental break from this team.
Well I'm refreshed and interested to see what we do with the draft. Let me see some moves that show some sort of "football sense".. Lets can the Mexican and the move on. (obviously easier said then done because of HORRIBLE management) but this team needs to be reinvigorated with fresh young faces and legs.
How has Pace and especially Bryan Thomas been here for so long? Think about that?
It's bad. I hope the Jets are up to task because it is going to take HARD work and the grace of God to right this ship.
