Brian Costello got to speak with Mike Westhoff about the Jets heading into the 2014 season. Westhoff worked in the NFL from 1986 through 2012 and spent the last dozen years of his career as Jets special teams coach under three different head coaches.
Q: What were your takeaways after spending a week in Cortland with the Jets?
A: Nothing that really surprised me, unfortunately. In the offseason they strengthened their strengths, but I am not sure they corrected their weaknesses enough. I thought they were in desperate need of an additional cornerback. They were counting on Dee Milliner, but I saw him beat repeatedly at camp and now he’s hurt again.
Whenever Westhoff speaks, I listen.
