Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Jets Tweets

"They need to find WR's, they need to find TE's. I think you give Geno a chance. You gotta give it some time to breathe." #Jets

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 7, 2014

ESPN just named @BigDame900 one of the top 5 players on the #Jets. Undrafted free agent out of a NAIA school. #AnythingisPossible

— Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) February 9, 2014

By dropping Sanchez, Cromartie and Holmes, the #Jets would clear a total of $26 million, putting them more than $40 million under the cap.

— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) February 9, 2014

With John Idzik running the show, I don't expect there to be any leaks for the #Jets free agency plans. Not buying that NYDN report on WR's.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 10, 2014

As undersized DLM, Michael Sam would project as OLB in Jets' 34 front. Could use another edge player, but it's not one of their top needs.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 10, 2014

Bruh. I don't have NYJ. UVA. Not even Ferguson in my bio. Just D'Brickashaw. And these folks think Im D'Brickashaw Ferguson. Really?

— D'Brickashaw (@DragonflyJonez) February 10, 2014

Rex will bring back Bryan Thomas before he drafts an OLB here.. it's baffling, but true

— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) February 10, 2014

That 2008 Cardinals/Jets game was crazy lol. Cards had 3 WR's go over 100 yds. Favre had 6 TD's. Coles had 100+ yds and 3 td's

— Manny (@MannyFresco16) February 10, 2014

#Jets announce '14 ticket-price adjustments: Lower level will go up by avg of 3%, mezz remains unchanged, upper decreases by avg of 10%.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 10, 2014

Extremely bad job by the #Jets hitting up the diehards for additional coin. Demand really justify it? Because performance doesn't. #NFL

— Jeff Capellini (@GreenLanternJet) February 10, 2014

Jets president Neil Glat says team lowered upper-deck season ticket prices to help keep opposing fans away.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) February 10, 2014

#NFL 2013: Most sacks allowed: #Dolphins (58), #Jaguars (50), #Browns (49), #Ravens & #Bills (48), #Buccaneers & #Jets (47), #Eagles (46)

— Russell S. Baxter (@BaxFootballGuru) February 10, 2014

Jets spent a whole season getting rid of bad contracts to get (after cuts) about $45 mil, Phins have $30 year removed from spending spree

— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) February 11, 2014

guys….the Jets retired 12. Some old QB was apparently pretty decent

— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) February 11, 2014

Sheldon Richardson said he's proud & happy 4 former teammate Michael Sam He lived w/ Sam-didn't care he was gay Said he was a great teammate

— Jeane Coakley (@JeaneCoakley) February 11, 2014

With all the Vick/#Jets chatter...surprised how many people are ignoring relationship issues he had with Mornhinweg

— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) February 11, 2014

I dream of the day when the #NYJ won't enter an offseason saying, "We need an outside linebacker."

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) February 11, 2014

Most turnovers #NFL since ‘09: ’13 #Giants (44), ’12 #Chiefs #Jets #Eagles (37), ’11 Buccaneers (40), ’10 #Giants (42), ’09 #Lions (41)

— Russell S. Baxter (@BaxFootballGuru) February 12, 2014

I want the Pats to draft a DT with the same type of edge. Bring some attitude to the defense.

— Rich Hill (@PP_Rich_Hill) February 12, 2014

If Michael Sam went to school at Umass Tanny would have drafted him in the 2nd round. #Jets

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) February 12, 2014

Making a list of prospects for every position I hope the #Jets draft. There will be three columns for each. Favorite. Acceptable. Ducasse

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) February 12, 2014

Came across a 3-Round Mock draft with #Jets taking: Amaro (yay), Robinson (nice)……. and Mettenberger (didn't see this one coming).

— Deb (@LilMissNYJet) February 12, 2014

Another player the Jets met with at the Shrine Game, per source, is Notre Dame OLBer Prince Shembo. Likely mid-round selection. #nyjets

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) February 12, 2014

Good year to have two 3rd round picks - there will be starting caliber talent left all over the board. #Jets

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 12, 2014

On Royce Adams: Played WR in college, was moved to CB by the Jets. Adams was listed as a WR on NFL's personnel notice.

— Brian McIntyre (@brian_mcintyre) February 12, 2014

The Saints have cut 4 players including Jon Vilma. Which of Rob's former players should Rex take?

— Gang Green Nation (@GangGreenNation) February 12, 2014

Jets will not have a comment regarding Ed Reed incident in which he had $50K in cash in a bag stolen from his car, per #NYJ spokesman.

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 13, 2014

Who in the (expletive deleted) keeps 50 grand in their car?

— mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) February 13, 2014

People complaining about the #Jets bringing back Austin Howard, I'm assuming this is your 1st year as a fan and missed the Wayne Hunter era.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 13, 2014

Idzik is unknown, but safe to say Rex is higher on Evans/Benjamin than JetsTwitter. Famously infatuated w Plax back in the day.

— Spider 2 Y Banana (@gambit1154) February 13, 2014

Oh wow. Per @corryjoel, the Bucs have the option to convert a lot of Darrelle Revis' $16M salary into a roster bonus. Interesting dynamic.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 13, 2014

3yrs: Ivory has played 24 games with 10 starts, carrying the ball 256 times for 1,307 yards (5.1 yards per carry) and 8 TDs. #Jets

— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) February 14, 2014

Huge Shoutout to the guys at @starter for hooking me up with this sweet Jets throwback Jacket.…

David Nelson (@DavidNelson86) February 14, 2014

Heading to Indy tomorrow night..going to #TAB..since @treyanastasio is such a big Jets fan I assume my backstage pass will be at will call!

— Bob Wischusen (@espnbob) February 15, 2014

— Russell S. Baxter (@BaxFootballGuru) February 15, 2014

I was just going through the pictures on my computer and completely forgot why I have like thirty pictures of Geno Smith as a child.

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) February 16, 2014

Scouting report on LSU safety Craig Loston. Rams, Ravens, Vikings, Bears, Packers, Eagles, 49ers, Cardinals & Jets.

— Charlie Campbell (@DraftCampbell) February 15, 2014


So I guess I should just accept that every WR released by another team the next few weeks will immediately rile up #JetsTwitter huh? Haha

— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) February 13, 2014

The Icognito/Martin voice mail/text messages are basic everyday conversations on #JetsTwitter

— NyJetsApologist (@SlowYourRoll79) February 14, 2014

Random Tweets

A line about kings from Game of Thrones reminds me of NFL coaches: "Their days are too long and their lives are too short."

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 9, 2014

If you disagree with a pick, mocked or real, it should be because you don't believe in the player, not because of the position he plays

— Steve Palazzolo (@StevePalazzolo) February 9, 2014

Every player I spoke to was supportive of a gay teammate. Said one, "I got his back." Players are ready for this. We'll see if teams are.

— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) February 10, 2014

A team’s top executive on Sam: "The league is in a better place to handle this now than a few years ago given the influx of younger GMs."

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 10, 2014

Even the claim that Kerry Rhodes is gay made him completely toxic in the NFL. Could only get one TRYOUT in 2013 after a Pro Bowl-level 2012.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) February 10, 2014

Regarding the use of anonymous quotes/sources, it's something I try to avoid. Neither way is right or wrong. Just how I was taught.

— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) February 10, 2014

From a pure football perspective, Sam was rated by most as a second- or third-round pick before tonight's announcement.

— Christopher Price (@cpriceNFL) February 10, 2014

In his first hour on Twitter, @MikeSamFootball has gained 18,165 followers.

— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) February 10, 2014

NFL workplace anti-discriminstion policy regarding sexual orientation here. @NFL345: NFL Statement on Michael Sam

— Greg Aiello (@gregaiello) February 10, 2014

Already rolling my eyes at people comparing Sam to Te'o.

— Rich Hill (@PP_Rich_Hill) February 10, 2014

Re: Michael Sam. The last 7 SEC Defensive Players of the Year have all gone on to become 1st RD picks. DeMeco Ryans was #2 in 2006.

— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) February 10, 2014

Robert Kraft told @BuckinBoston he’s spoken to Belichick in the past about having an openly gay player: "Anyone who can help us win."

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 10, 2014

More Bill Belichick on Sam: "Our scouting staff has performed extensive work on Michael, both this season &going back throughout his career"

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 10, 2014

It's easy to say "player x is a 2nd rounder" until you put pen to paper and start ranking players. Better idea to say he's a 1st yr starter

— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) February 11, 2014

I sure hope Mike Pettine knew this was coming. Might explain why so many potential coaches turned down the position.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 11, 2014

Firing Mike Lombardi is not a new thought. If they hired Adam Gase, #Browns wanted to pair him w #Seahawks exec Scot McCloughan, per source

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 11, 2014

The last few days once again drive home this very significant point: There is NO off season in the NFL.

— trey wingo (@wingoz) February 11, 2014

Kokinis was 2009. So in the last 5 years ... Holmgren, Banner, Kokinis, Heckert, Lombardi, Farmer, Mangini, Shurmur, Chudzinski and Pettine.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) February 11, 2014

Interesting project would be dissecting how teams (13 TB, 12 NYG/CHI, 11 SEA, 10 TB) that excelled in turnover margin still missed playoffs

— Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) February 11, 2014

Evaluating QBs & determining QB draft position is a completely different animal from any other position. Nature & value of QBs dictate that.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 11, 2014

Asked a personnel exec for some over/unders on Clowney at the combine-- size-6'6, weight-270, 40 time- 4.50, VJ-37. Freaky stuff!

— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) February 12, 2014

I have a great deal of respect for Derek Jeter, who always treated me well. Class act. He even offered me a bowl of cereal once in Minnesota

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 12, 2014

Always remember this from Parcells: When you start talking about retirement, you've already retired. #Jeter

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 12, 2014

Here's an incredible stat: The 4 players the Saints let go today -- Smith, Vilma, Greer, Harper -- started a total of 352 games for the team

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) February 12, 2014

Mediocrity is a curse in pro sports. Better to be bad. Really bad.

— Vic Lombardi (@VicLombardi) February 13, 2014

There isn't that much $ in jersey royalties. If A&M split with Manziel he probably would have made $10K-$15K

— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) February 13, 2014

76 undrafted players from the 2013 #NFL Draft made it on an active roster #Crazy

— NFL Stats (@NFL_Stats) February 13, 2014

I believe that it was @JoshNorris who said that at this point, tight ends just need to be adequate and willing in blocking. I wholly agree.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 13, 2014

Liked how Mike Pettine told reporters today that he moved within 'walking distance' of the Browns facility. Think he's a keeper.

— Marc Sessler (@MarcSesslerNFL) February 14, 2014

I think we now have the first item on the NFL Spring Meetings agenda: Workplace Standards, Respect and Anti-Harassment.

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) February 14, 2014

Lawyer for @68INCOGNITO disputes facts of Wells Report. Didn't think he would come out and say "Yup, that sounds about right!"..

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) February 14, 2014

Not surprised by Goodell compensation. Revenues approaching $10B, ten-year favorable CBA, record TV deals, paid by billionaires...

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) February 14, 2014

According to the report, the Dolphins fined Incognito $50,000 for his behavior toward a female volunteer at the team's golf outing in 2012.

— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) February 14, 2014 past couple of days in the NFL Jimmy Haslam has preached patience and Richie Incognito has preached love. Got it.

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) February 15, 2014

Nike CEO Mark Parker, whose company brings in $15 billion more than the NFL annually, earned $9M less than Roger Goodell did in 2012

The SEC will make up 21.2% (71 players) of next week's @nfl Scouting Combine.
