New York Jets – Stay Away From Quarterback In Top Ten

Why the New York Jets should stay away from Geno Smith in round one of the NFL Draft

There has been speculation about the New York Jets potentially selecting West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in the first round of the upcoming NFL Draft.

However, taking Smith with their 9th overall pick or even the 13th overall pick potentially acquired in a Darrelle Revis trade would be a mistake…a mistake that the Jets aren’t likely to make.

New York Jets Sign Safety Dawan Landry

Thoughts on the New York Jets signing safety Dawan Landry

The New York Jets made a needed addition to their perilously thin safety position today by signing veteran Dawan Landry, older brother of LaRon who was the team’s starting safety last season before moving on this off-season.

At the center of the most recent controversy is the New York Jets enforcing Darrelle Revis attend voluntary workouts in Florham Park to collect bonus money on his contract.
