New York Jets Kellen Winslow Jr On The Comeback Trail

Connor Rogers breaks down New York Jets TE Kellen Winslow Jr and his comeback attempt

When the Jets signed free agent tight end and former Brown’s first round pick Kellen Winslow Jr., the fan base had a mixed reaction of excitement and skepticism. Most of the excitement stemmed from the lack of adding anyone remotely talented at the tight end position and the skepticism was due to Winslow Jr. barely playing in the NFL last season. The main concern with Winslow is how healthy his knees are, an issue only Winslow himself could detail for you. As that question will answer itself throughout training camp, I’ve also seen another issue raised by the media every time Winslow’s name is brought up: his age.

Expectations For New York Jets WRs Stephen Hill & Jeremy Kerley?

Dalbin Osorio on how New York Jets WRs Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill compare with other notable 2nd and 5th round WRs.

Members of the New York Jets have varying levels of importance when it comes to the team’s success this upcoming season. The Jets could be ok if Dee Milliner doesn’t play lights out from Day 1 because they had a highly ranked pass defense with Kyle Wilson playing corner opposite Antonio Cromartie. If David Harris doesn’t bounce back from a subpar 2012 it will hurt less if Mo Wilkerson and Quinton Coples don’t consistently put pressure on the QB. Some would say Mark Sanchez and/or Geno Smith need be nothing more than glorified game manager and the offense can stil be successful if Chris Ivory produces. However, two Jets who absolutely have to deliver because of question marks surrounding the wide receiver position are Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill.

New York Jets GM John Idzik – Ready For New York Jets Rebuild?

Dalbin Osorio explores if New York Jets GM John Idzik up to task for the New York Jets rebuilding process

“He’s going to do what’s best for the club, period. He’s not going to get bullied or pushed around whether it’s media influence or whatever.”- Seahawks GM John Schneider

When the New York Jets hired John Idzik as the franchise’s general manager, of fans were just thrilled that it wasn’t Scott Cohen and to be rid of “Trader Mike” Tannenbaum. The New York media tried to paint Idzik as strictly a capologist from the Seattle Seahawks with no knowledge of drafting or scouting players, a reputation that didn’t initially endear him to the fan base. Idzik was actually called a “Mike Tannenbaum clone” before even being introduced. However, have no fear Jet Nation because we at TOJ believe that Woody Johnson hired the right man for the job. Let’s take a look at Idzik’s career in NFL front offices and what that can mean for the Jets rebuilding process.
