Jets Tweets

People in Jets org believe Idzik has plenty 2 lose if Sanchez stays/outshines Geno in camp. #NYJ insider: "John can’t have Sanchez succeed"

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 23, 2014

WRs who ran 4.4 or less 40-times in '12 Combine-that most dont care about today: Stephen Hill, Travis Benjamin, AJ Jenkins, Tommy Streeter

— RC Fischer (@CFBMetrics) February 23, 2014

#Jets had a formal interview last night with Alabama LB Adrian Hubbard.

— Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) February 23, 2014

Perhaps a fairer question: would Jets fans rather they had drafted Robert Woods (highest drafted WR available) over Geno and QB in 2014 1st?

— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) February 23, 2014

Jets waiting to evaluate Sanchez's shoulder, may keep at reduced rate to provide competition via @sharethis #nyjets

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) February 24, 2014

Bart Scott will be an analyst on "NFL Today". Some of GGN's members have been calling for it in our comments section for weeks.

— Gang Green Nation (@GangGreenNation) February 24, 2014

General thought on most articles about Sanchez being on #Jets in 2014 is that it is posturing to create some type of trade value

— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) February 24, 2014

How long until Josh McCown starts if he signs with the Jets? Setting the over/under at Week 6.

— Dan Hanzus (@DanHanzus) February 24, 2014

Based on conversations this week, it’s clear the #Jets are viewed as a legitimate possible landing spot for #Eagles QB Michael Vick.

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 24, 2014

Vick's best season was under Marty in Philly. No one can debate this. #Jets

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) February 24, 2014

Michael Vick to the #Jets in a substantive role would benefit the AFC East, not including the Jets.

— PatriotsSB49 (@PatriotsSB49) February 24, 2014

3. Remember this name when you get excited about Combine stars: Stephen Hill, consensus fast-riser of '12 Combine. Gotta watch the games.

— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) February 25, 2014

Kim Miale, who represents #NYJ QB Geno Smith, now will also represent UFA WR Hakeem Nicks.

— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) February 25, 2014

How many of you want to trade Sheldon for Tyler Eifert? Okay then.

— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) February 25, 2014

If the #Jets aren't able to secure RT Austin Howard by 3/11, he's looking at the potential of $7 M+ a season elsewhere. Supply/demand.

— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) February 25, 2014

2005 NFL Draft Jets on clock at #47. Frank Gore, Vincent Jackson, Justin Tuck, still available. Jets draft Mike Nugent, kicker, Ohio State.

— Deep Threat (@DeeepThreat) February 25, 2014

The market for Mike Vick won't be limited to one team, and him to the Jets is anything but a sure thing. Decent market for him forming

— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) February 25, 2014

In 2002, Bryan Thomas measured in at 6'4 and 266 pounds and ran the 40 at 4.47 seconds. Then Jets drafted him over Ed Reed.

— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) February 25, 2014

Per @JasonLaCanfora, Bucs may deal Darrelle Revis. If a trade happens before March 13, Jets get 4th round pick instead of 3rd this year.

— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) February 25, 2014

Tampa Bay GM Jason Licht: "Right now Darrelle Revis is an asset to this team." Translation: "Assets have value; we'll see."

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) February 26, 2014

Because I know I'll be asked....I have no f***ing idea who is better between Sherman and Revis. Just appreciate they're both unbelievable.

— Cian Fahey (@Cianaf) February 26, 2014

Phil Simms: "I think if Geno Smith were in this draft class, he'd be the number one (QB)" #ScheinOnSports

— Mad Dog Sports Radio (@MadDogRadio) February 26, 2014

Old NFLN top 10 had Wayne Chrebet as 10th-best undrafted player. Have to think Wes Welker would replace him (among others) on an update.

— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) February 27, 2014

Jets were cagey and noncommittal in Indy about their plans. But the expectations is WR Santonio Holmes will be cut soon. No talk of pay cut

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 27, 2014

The Santonio Holmes era will be remembered for a handful of moments and fistfuls of headaches.

— Corey Griffin (@cgriffin415) February 27, 2014

Jets in talks to bring back Calvin Pace #nyj:

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) February 27, 2014

All the Vick to Jets speculation makes no sense to me. What do they gain by bringing him in?

— Cian Fahey (@Cianaf) February 27, 2014

A big THANK YOU to the @nyjets for an incredible act of kindness. They read about my wife having breast cancer...

— (@JetNation) February 27, 2014

Jets have expressed desire to bring Pace back. No one said they're talking money yet.

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) February 27, 2014

Revis' uncle, Sean Gilbert, says he has a plan for the players to get out of the current CBA, according to the Sports Business Journal.

— Dan Leberfeld (@jetswhispers) February 28, 2014

Would love to see Edelman in green and white. Would be very hard for teams to stop him and Kerley on 3rd downs together. #Jets

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 28, 2014

Santonio Holmes turns 30 on Monday. Will he still be on the Jets roster? #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) February 28, 2014

#Buccaneers taking trade offers for CB Darrelle Revis. #49ers and #Patriots believed to be two teams interested. #NFL

— Frank Pimentel (@FrankTank96) February 28, 2014

Patriots are releasing S Steve Gregory, who once scored on an unusual fumble by a Jets QB. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 28, 2014

With pick No. 17 of the second round of the #3for3draft, the New York Jets select TE Troy Niklas

— Steve Palazzolo (@StevePalazzolo) February 28, 2014

Until WR Jeremy Maclin reached agreement with Philadelphia on a 1-year deal, Jets and Broncos were preparing to make a run at him.

— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 28, 2014

Chad Pennington and Byron Leftwich will serve as the head coaches for Marshall's April 26 spring game.

— CollegeFootballTalk (@CFTalk) February 28, 2014

@RichCimini Nick Folk's franchise tag will be more than he's made in the last 5 years ($3,288,162).

— Joel Corry (@corryjoel) February 28, 2014

#Jets placing a tag on a kicker shows what kind of cap room they will have this year.

— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) February 28, 2014

Nick Folk played under the veteran minimum the last two years. Hits a few GW FGs and now will get more than 3x what he made last year.

— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) February 28, 2014

Actually, make that more than 4x what he got paid last year. And maybe even an extension soon. Kickers are getting paid after a lean '13.

— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) February 28, 2014

Per @PFF_NateJahnke, Nick Folk's performance in 2013 was worth $3.2M.

— Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) February 28, 2014

Folk is a heck of a kicker. He had 3 Game-Winning kicks this year and has 7 since joining the Green & White in 2010. Looks good in G&W.

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) February 28, 2014

The franchise tag again serves its intended purpose — preventing a 29-year-old kicker from reaching the open market.

— Patrick Daugherty (@RotoPat) February 28, 2014

I can't imagine Folk is too happy. He made it pretty clear at the end of the year he was hoping for a multiyear deal. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) February 28, 2014

#Jets are going the Adam Vinatieri route with Nick Folk. #Patriots tagged Vinatieri in 2002 and again in 2005.

— PatriotsSB49 (@PatriotsSB49) February 28, 2014

On #Jets K Nick Folk, he signed for minimum salary benefit last year, so the team couldn't sign him to a long-term deal until 3/11.

— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) February 28, 2014

Just spoke with someone in Jets management tonight, was told that they think Folk's Pro Bowl snub "was as bad as Mo Wilkerson's." #nyjets

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) March 1, 2014

The status of Revis is significant because the #Patriots and #Jets could be vying for some of the same WRs/TEs available in the 3rd round.

— PatriotsSB49 (@PatriotsSB49) March 1, 2014

Proud of @Oday_Aboushi75 who is going to Sudan with a team of surgeons to aid in cleft lip surgeries for young children! #SuperHero

Remember: NO NFL team uses official electronic times. They will each use their own hand timed 40s.

— Shane P. Hallam (@ShanePHallam) February 23, 2014

Average 40 time for a starting RB as of last season coming out of college was 4.56.

— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) February 23, 2014

Random question of day: how does Tampa Bay finish fourth in NFC south yet Atlanta picks before Bucs in first round?

— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 23, 2014

How about this then.. of top 15 40 times posted by a WR in last 5 years.. only 1 has 1000 season . @ScottHanson some debate over Julio

Trying to assess player's character in 15-min Combine session is like that HGTV 90-Day Wedding show: it's just not enough time.

How many franchises are actually well run these days? Single digits?

— Cian Fahey (@Cianaf) February 24, 2014

Tough being the top dog.. every little thing is torn apart. Thats why if your an Underclassman.. get out and into the draft ASAP

— Mike Loyko (@NEPD_Loyko) February 24, 2014

Bridgewater not throwing at the combine. Oh well you didn't see it. He's throwing on his day. Get a plane ticket go to Louisville and watch

— Rob Carpenter (@robcarpenter81) February 24, 2014

Greatest defensive linemen in NFL history was Reggie White (198 sacks). He did not run the 40 in 4.48. #moretoitthanspeed #clowney

— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) February 24, 2014

Jadeveon Clowney only did 21 bench reps? Write him off just like Julius Peppers (22), Greg Hardy (21), Robert Quinn (22) & Aldon Smith (20).

— Scott Wright (@DraftCountdown) February 24, 2014

Amazing fact I just noticed: Three years in, 12 of the Top 16 picks in the '11 draft have made Pro Bowls. Exceptions: Fairley and three QBs.

One exec who knows both men well told me that from Day 1, Harbaugh/Baalke tension was "inevitable, (because they're) both Type A people".

Some people are gamers I get that. But there's also a certain level of athlete required to play at that level

— Sully (@SullyFootball) February 25, 2014

Dri Archer is 5'8, how the hell did he match Megatron for number of strides over 40? Was he running in lunar gravity?

— Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) February 25, 2014

You wonder why a lot of the CBs/WR skip bench press.. you put up a low number and you get ripped. Best to just skip if you can't do 10+

There's going to be some serious WR value in Day 3. Max of 15 in 2009. 13 in 10. 11 in 11. 13 in 12. Average of 12 over past 5 seasons.

FWIW, since #NFL went to 12-team playoff format in 1990, team with 10+ wins has missed playoffs only 10 times but 4 times since 2010

— Russell S. Baxter (@BaxFootballGuru) February 27, 2014

One thing to remember on NFL DBs: they challenge WRs. Rookies have to develop their route running to produce. Size/Speed isn't enough.

Matt Bowen (@MattBowen41) February 27, 2014

Maybe I'm just not used to paying that much attention to it, but league-wide there seems to be a warped view of rookie QBs. The 2012 class.
