Jets Tweets

More I watch Mike Glennon the more I realize that there shouldn't even be a thought of replacing him this offseason.

— Cian Fahey (@Cianaf) February 17, 2014

The #Jets haven't utilized the franchise tag since 2011 (David Harris). Will they use it on Folk or Howard this year?

— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) February 17, 2014

If CJ Mosley slid to 18, do you take him #Jets fans?

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 18, 2014

Jets safety Antonio Allen has switched agents. He has hired Joel Segal. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) February 18, 2014

Mayock considers North Carolina TE Eric Ebron a top-10 pick. Bad news for TE-needy Jets. #NFLCombine

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 18, 2014

NFL Net's Mike Mayock says he won't be surprised if Jets draft multiple WRs. Thinks USC's Lee & Texas A&M's Evans make sense at No. 18 #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 18, 2014

#NFL 2013: Fewest takeaways #Texans (11), #Jets (15), #Chargers (17), #Saints (19), #Vikings #Steelers (20), #Jaguars #Browns #Falcons (21)

— Russell S. Baxter (@BaxFootballGuru) February 19, 2014

Geno Smith scored 72 percent of the Jets offensive touchdowns last season. 18 of 25. Includes 50% of the team's rush TDs.

— Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) February 19, 2014

Both Rex Ryan and Tom Coughlin were on my flight to Indy. The 2 spent a while catching up at the gate before the flight. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) February 19, 2014

Rumor I read has the #Jets trading up to the second overall pick with St Louis and taking Clemson WR Sammy Watkins.

— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) February 19, 2014

Can confirm; NY Jets meeting with reps for Austin Howard during the Combine in an attempt to resign him before free agency. More tomorrow

— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) February 19, 2014

the dolphins are dragging out this firing of Jim Turner more than the Jets did with Schotty, which is saying something

— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) February 19, 2014

Notable Jets-related Wonderlic scores over the years (max: 50), per @ESPNStatsInfo: McElroy 43, Sanchez 28, Pennington 25, Geno Smith 24.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 20, 2014

The Dolphins brought their trainer to the combine, then fired him the first day. Nobody can call the Jets a circus again.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) February 20, 2014

If the #Jets keep Cumberland, they desperately need to sign or draft an in-line tight end. He can't be left at the LOS to block - ever.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 20, 2014

Former Jets coach Eric Mangini, a 49ers assistant, will coach tight ends in '14, team announced. #jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 20, 2014

Jets will have a LOT more than 49K in dead money though. probably over 10 million dead $

— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) February 20, 2014

Cornell QB Jeff Mathews said he's watched the Jets train in Cortland (near Ithaca) quite a bit.

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) February 20, 2014

Rex Ryan on Stephen Hill: "He's got the raw physical tools... His development was hindered this year." #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 20, 2014

Rex on Stephen Hill: "We knew coming from (Georgia Tech) that he was going to take some developing." Has confidence he’ll do well next year.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) February 20, 2014

Rex on Ed Reed: "I think we all know Ed can still play." #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 20, 2014

Rex Ryan on openly gay player on roster: "Would be no different than any other player. The main thing we always talk about is respect."

— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) February 20, 2014

Rex Ryan draws a crowd. There are about 5-10 times more reporters at his podium than there were for Dennis Allen.

— Chris Wesseling (@ChrisWesseling) February 20, 2014

Rex gives the old "I'd like all my players back, but ..." answer when asked about Mark Sanchez's future as a Jet.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) February 20, 2014

Bill Belichick is making a surprise appearance at the podium. Chose to do it at 3 pm… when Jets GM John Idzik is going #oppositepodiums

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 20, 2014

In fairness to new Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey, who was boring, Jets coach Rex Ryan also got cut off by NFL Network. YOU KNOW Rex isn't boring

— Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) February 20, 2014

Idzik won't deny that he is open to drafting a QB in the first round.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) February 20, 2014

Are #Jets open to taking a QB in the 1st Rd? Idzik says they're going to draft the best player for the #NYJ, regardless of position

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) February 20, 2014

Jets GM John Idzik asked about Darrelle Revis: "Who?" #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 20, 2014

Outside of Geno, of all the #Jets on the current roster, think Coples development could have biggest swing on overall team

— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) February 20, 2014

"We're trying to build something special here and we realize we have a long way to go." Has a HC metamorphisized as much as Rex Ryan? #Jets

— PatriotsSB49 (@PatriotsSB49) February 20, 2014

Excited to hear #Jets are meeting with @theeDocHolliday. Really good dude and great prospect. Would be a great addition to the OL. #nyj

— Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) February 21, 2014

"@theeDocHolliday" is guard prospect Xavier Su'a-Filo.

Jimmy Garoppolo said he met informally with the Jets last night.

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) February 21, 2014

Told the New York Jets met with reps for Calvin Pace yesterday to discuss resigning the linebacker.

— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) February 21, 2014

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. is "pretty sure" he'll meet with the #Jets. Said Marty's WC system "would be a fun offense to be in." #nflcombine

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) February 21, 2014

WR Brandin Cooks, who will have an interview with the Jets, says he believes he's the best WR in the class. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) February 21, 2014

Familiar Tweet: WR Jordan Matthews will have an interview with the Jets tonight and also believes he's the best in the class. #nyj

— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) February 21, 2014

#LRT - Antonio Andrews is one of my fav mid-round RB options for #Jets. Glad to hear #Jets interview stood out.

— Deb (@LilMissNYJet) February 21, 2014

Chillin with @marcedeslewis89 last night.

— ANTONIO CROMARTIE (@CRO31) February 22, 2014

Fun Fact: My high school beat the high school Coples attended in the State Championship game back in 2012.

I had one scout tell me that he thought Jordan Matthews would be a tremendous fit on the #nyjets if they trade back in the draft.

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) February 22, 2014

The Jets met with Mark Sanchez's representatives here in Indy last night, but nothing was resolved about his future with the team #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) February 22, 2014

Mike Pettine said he was driven to prove he wasn't "just a HS coach" or "that guy who was just getting Rex's coffee." #nfl #browns #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) February 22, 2014

Ex-Jets DC Pettine says goal as Browns coach is to eliminate "noise" that surrounds tm -- ie Harbaugh story. Has experience w/ noise. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 22, 2014

Jeff Cumberland ran a sub 4.5. #Jets

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) February 22, 2014

— NFL Retweet (@NFLRT) February 16, 2014

What's interesting about the WR/TE tag fight -- Move TEs generally line up in the slot. Ask Cruz and Welker about the market for slot WRs.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) February 16, 2014

For those wondering @incarceratedbob is the same fraud/liar he's always been. Lies about stories, page views, job offers, anything for attn.

Most hilarious NCAA bylaw requires THE ATHLETE to actually stop the selling of stuff that has his name/likeness on it.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock, in pre-combine conf call w/ media, calls this probably deepest draft he's seen in 10 yrs. Especially deep at WR.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 18, 2014

Eric Decker: "It's not all about the money for me." Translation: "It's mostly all about the money for me."

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) February 18, 2014

Mike Mayock was asked what the Raiders need. Response: A quarterback and "players." Pretty much covers it.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) February 18, 2014

New respect for Mike Mayock (on top of what he'd already earned). Went 2 hours 42 minutes on a pre-combine conference call.

— David Steele (@David_C_Steele) February 18, 2014

Just looked it up, and 3 of the last 4 QBs to go 1st overall (Stafford, Bradford, Luck) didn't throw in Indy. Cam Newton's the one that did.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) February 18, 2014

Jim Tyrer retired after 1974. Means he was eligible for 1980. Killed his wife/self on 9/15/1980. Was a HOF finalist for 1981. Hmm...

— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) February 19, 2014

As for centralized replay, committee chair Rich McKay told me, "Maybe not next year." Possible it won’t be ready for a vote. Bit of a downer

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 19, 2014

I forgot Sam Bradford tore his ACL, because the unwritten rule states that Sam Bradford is a $50M man no one ever talks about.

— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) February 19, 2014

Any other type of news network is held responsible for giving out bad info. I guess football analysts get a pass.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 19, 2014

Been watching centers all day, seems like 80% are quick instead of strong now.

— Cian Fahey (@Cianaf) February 19, 2014

Talking to people in Indy who I trust, I get the sense that Bortles and Manziel are the favorites for No. 1 pick. Still very early though

— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) February 20, 2014

#Steelers GM saying older prospects more NFL ready may be true but analytical evidence shows younger prospects have wayyyyy higher ceilings.

— Evan Silva (@evansilva) February 20, 2014

Vikings GM Rick Spielman says he thinks there's enough depth in this draft that a team could draft a franchise QB in the 2nd, 3rd round.

— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) February 20, 2014

I know of one team (besides obviously Miami) that had a PR sit down prior to coming to combine, just to get answers straight.

— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) February 20, 2014

Over 900 credentials issued for the #NFLcombine, I'm told. Exact count isn't in, but it'll be an all-time high.

— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) February 20, 2014

Belichick is now breaking down combine drills. He seems to value the three-cone.

— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) February 20, 2014

Interesting how Phil Emery and David Gettleman have stressed drafting size on defense.

— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) February 20, 2014

The salary cap in 2000 was $62M. #Raiders salary cap space is ~$64M. Crazy.

— Christopher Hansen (@ChrisHansenNFL) February 20, 2014

This is the year that teams can being paying back the borrowed cap space from 2011 and 2012. #NFL

There are dozens of unique views to give on Incognito. But I think we're all in agreement that Rice's actions were awful.

Jim Harbaugh would’ve been the first NFL coach traded since Herm Edwards in 2006. Jon Gruden, Belichick and Parcells also were traded.

The ONE test that needs to be added at combine, especially for OL, overhead squat. It will tell all you need to know outside of film.

LeCharles Bentley (@OLineWorld65) February 22, 2014

First time I can remember an OL group going through bench and no one lifting under 20 reps. Bigger, stronger. #NFLCombine

Can't imagine how many times the N-Word is said in an NFL game - 100? 150? Rodger is out of his mind on this one

If Michael Sam interviews as well with NFL teams as he did with media, he's going to be just fine.

— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) February 22, 2014

It's ridiculous that Michael Sam got to bring his agent into the interview session when others aren't allowed to.
