Daily links to articles about the NFL's New York Jets.

Good morning, Gang Green Gangsters! Am I just me, or does it seem like the New York Jets seemed to focus on versatile players this year?

New York Times: The Jets answer one question with Geno Smith, but others remain.

Conor Orr: The Jets invested a lot of time in getting to know Smith before drafting him.

Steve Serby: Geno's got next but don't expect his best.

Daily News: Smith had talents for acting, writing and painting before football.

New York Post: His backers were laughing when a writer criticized Smith as not being a student of the game.

Bob Glauber: The Jets made all the right moves to salvage the franchise. It can be a risky business, as your picks could end up legend or fade into oblivion.

Rich Cimini: Account by account, John Idzik is settling all of the Jets's family business.

Mike Lupica: Idzik was right to draft Smith.

Mike Florio: Trying to make sense of the Smith pick.

Brian Costello: Rex Ryan feels the need to compare his playoff record to the New England Patriots'.

Jason Cole: Ryan was among the winners, regardless of whether Smith can play.

Kimberley A. Martin: The roster still has glaring holes.

Manish Mehta: The Jets don't look any better on paper than they did a few days ago. Correction: They don't look any better on your paper, Manish.

Gary Myers: Mark Sanchez is no longer the franchise quarterback.

Conor Orr: Marty Morninwheg says, "Mark knows what I think about him." Oh snap.

Randy Lange: DeMario Davis and Stephen Hill will be on the silver screen. Chris Ivory and the Jets agree to a $10 million contract. This could be more than a safeguard, as he could provide some zest to the team. This is a dove tail fit, I think.

M Live: Will Campbell was a little surprised when the Jets told him they wanted a workout on the offensive line.

Morning Call: Lehigh's Ryan Spadola said it's not the first time he'll be able to prove people wrong.

National Football Post: Scouting report on Mike Edwards.

Daily Record: Gang Green hosted its annual Draft Family Fun Day yesterday.

Over the Cap: The importance of planning for the undrafted free agent.

Miami Herald: Stephen Ross says that Tony Sparano damaged the Miami Dolphins.

New York Times: Matt Barkley stayed at USC and paid.

Here is what I've noticed about our new GM's name recently:

Can we still call him the Wizard of Id(zik) then?
