Mark Sanchez spoke about the fights today. Although on the field work is much more important, it's nice to hear the franchise quarterback sound so polished. He by nature needs to develop into a strong locker room voice.

Rutgers product Jamaal Westerman opening eyes at NY Jets camp - NJ.com
Jamaal Westerman continues to impress. I can't wait to see what Rex can do with a guy versatile enough to play inside linebacker and stick his hand down to rush the passer.

Jets Waive Owens - NY Daily News
The Jets waived tight end Richard Owens. The veteran's strong suit was blocking. So much for him taking the role of in line blocker at the position. Maybe Kareem Brown is impressing people.
