Bodies, fists and legs were flying as Jets practice Monday morning quickly morphed into a MMA street fight.
Thomas Jones and James Ihedigbo were involved in the first major scuffle of camp. Jones took exception to Ihedigbo's hit after a carry to the right side. Jones immediately took a couple swings at Ihedigbo before a swarm of players turned it into a full blown donnybrook.
Three fights in 15 minutes. Things are heating up at Camp Ryan.
This kind of thing gets me a little worried. Football's a game of aggression so it's good to see stuff like this on one level. On the other hand, I don't like to see this happen too often. Tempers are going to flare every now and then, but it's very important to keep your cool. You don't want to get into a habit like this and cost your team 15 yards in a big game. I also don't like seeing these guys go at each other too much. The opponents should be your enemies, not your teammates.
