      • Yeah I can't wait for our games against the Phins, they're going to be intense, hard hitting games to say the least. Crowder acts like they hands down "whupped" us last year. He forgets that we took the opener in their stadium, and Favre threw away the game in the finale. Crowder is a jack ass.

        • Don't feel like looking for a link, but Sanchez was reportedly signed per ESPN. I think 50mil 28 guaranteed over 5 years.

          Comment


          • FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets and quarterback Mark Sanchez reached an agreement on a five-year contract Wednesday.

            The Jets made the announcement while Sanchez, the fifth overall pick in the NFL draft in April, was still at practice during the afternoon session of minicamp.

            "This is just the beginning," Sanchez said after practice. "I'll be working everyday to justify this contract."

            The five-year deal is worth $50 million, with $28 million in guarantees, a source told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen. The deal could be worth as much as $60 million.

            "This allows for two things," Sanchez said. "First, it's one huge thing behind me, a big weight lifted off all of our shoulders. They know that I'm all about football and that's all that I have to focus on now. Secondly, it allows me to get involved in the community here and back home."

            Sanchez led Southern California to a Rose Bowl victory over Penn State with a record-setting performance in his final college game. He's competing with veteran Kellen Clemens for the Jets' starting job, up for grabs after the retirement of Brett Favre.

            "The one thing that really comes to my mind is, breath of fresh air and, wow, let's go now," Sanchez said. "Let's really compete for this job and let's get into camp. I'll be in on time and I have nothing to worry about there. It's time to focus on football."

            New York's last two top picks, linebacker Vernon Gholston and cornerback Darrelle Revis, reported to training camp late while trying to negotiate deals.

            "We had some discussions a few weeks ago," general manager Mike Tannenbaum said of Sanchez's representatives. "I give them a lot of credit. We were trying to create a sense of urgency, even though it's still early. ... We didn't think there was any need to wait if both sides could create that sense of urgency and if both sides could come up with a deal that was good for both sides."

            Added Sanchez: "It sends the right message. It's not in my makeup to hold out like that. That would've just been terrible for me."

            Sanchez has impressed at times during organized team activities and minicamp practices, showing lots of poise, confidence and good decision-making skills. He and Clemens have been about even in their competition.

            "You gain confidence as you go," Sanchez said earlier Wednesday. "Now I am starting to really feel the defense and see what is going on. As difficult as our defense can be I am starting to get an idea."

            The Jets made a bold draft-day move to get Sanchez, acquiring the fifth overall pick from Cleveland and former coach Eric Mangini for their first-round pick, their second-rounder (No. 52), and defensive end Kenyon Coleman, safety Abram Elam and quarterback Brett Ratliff.

            Sanchez went 14-2 as a starter with the Trojans. His lack of experience -- he had only one full season as a starter -- had some questioning whether he was truly ready for the NFL, but the Jets loved what they saw of him in private workouts and a classroom session in a hotel room at the owners' meetings in California in March.

            After drafting Sanchez, coach Rex Ryan said there would be an open competition for the quarterback job.

            "We've got two really good quarterbacks, and the competition is going to be fierce," Ryan said on the first day of minicamp Tuesday. "At training camp, it's going to be a great battle."

            Sanchez already is becoming a fan favorite, with several fans in the crowd at minicamp wearing his No. 6 jersey. He also has gotten lots of attention, befitting that of a budding star in New York, with a swimsuit spread in GQ magazine, throwing out the first pitch at a Mets game and tabloids wondering about his love life.

            But Sanchez says he's concentrating on his game on the field.

            "I think that more than anything, the next couple of days are vital," he said. "I have to show that I'm really coming along from rookie camp. Then next week, we have rookie OTAs for first- and second-year guys and rookies. With all of the veterans gone, that is my chance to really take charge and assume command of the offense."

            This is ridiculous. I feel like we got a huge deal here. Not only did he sign early, but he's making less per year than Stafford and Ryan, not to mention this is the lowest amount of guaranteed money for a top 5 QB in the past four or so years. That's amazing. He's getting 14 mil less than Stafford guaranteed. Sanchez is a cool guy.

            • FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- And now it's time for your daily AFC East smack update.

              (Brought to you by "Your Mama's So Ugly" dental floss, available at Woolworth's and other fine stores.)

              Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder took another verbal run at New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, who on Tuesday called out Crowder for calling him out about calling out New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

              It all started when Ryan told New York sports-radio station WFAN he didn't take the Jets job to kiss Bill Belichick's rings and wasn't intimidated. Crowder interjected -- if this were hockey he'd get a game misconduct for third man into a fight -- that Ryan should shut up because you don't win anything in June.

              Ryan suggested he didn't know who Crowder was, but if Ryan were younger, he would fight Crowder. And that you do win by preparing in the offseason.

              "Oh, Lord, have mercy," Crowder told Miami Herald reporter Jeff Darlington. "What's wrong with him? Now he's talking about preparation? We play them twice this year. If he wants to be prepared, shouldn't he know the starting middle linebackers of his division rival?

              "He says he'd take care of me if he was younger? I'd have beat the hell out of that big old joker. Or if he really wants to get retro, my daddy or my uncle could have handled him. Don't get big. Win with preparation? Start watching some tape and learn who your rival is. Come on now."

              Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked what he thought of the entertainment Ryan has brought to the AFC East.

              "I have a lot of respect for Rex, what he did in Baltimore, the defense his team has played," Belichick said after Wednesday's minicamp session. "We've always had great battles with the Jets. So I'm sure that will continue. It's a good rivalry. They beat us up here last year. They kind of got the last punch in on that one.

              "It's a new year. Right now we are more focused on Buffalo than any other team in the division because we open with them [Sept. 14], but we know we are going to have to deal with Miami and the Jets as well, and we have a lot of respect for all those teams."

              Not exactly a Joey Porter-style throwdown, but that's how the Patriots roll.

              New York Jets coach Rex Ryan didn't seem like the retiring type.

              In what's turning into a relentless back-and-forth brawl that would make Marvin Hagler and Thomas Hearns grimace, the verbal punches kept coming Wednesday.

              I previously wrote about comments Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder's unleashed on Ryan.

              Ryan didn't flinch. He fired back again.

              "First off, Channing Crowder had a rebuttal," Ryan told reporters Wednesday in Florham Park, N.J. He was unable to keep a straight face. "I love it. The only thing I can say is -- and let's see if he can top this one -- I've walked over tougher guys going to a fight than Channing Crowder."

              Ryan then laughed and seemed to brace for another Crowder counterpunch.

              "The dude's going to kill me," Ryan said.

              Ryan's players seem to be having fun with the biting discourse.

              "Whatever coach wants to say, he can say anything and I'm going to ride with him," Jets linebacker Bart Scott said. "That's my man. I don't care what he says and likewise.

              "If a player comes in and makes a statement, he's making a statement and expects his teammates to have his back because, realistically, you're a family, right or wrong. ... So it's up to us to make sure we back him up to make it right."

              Said quarterback Kellen Clemens: "I like the swagger Coach Ryan has brought to the team and to the organization. They could call us cocky or arrogant or whatever. Who cares? Let's just go out there and win and that speaks the loudest."

                  • Pretty entertaining for this time of year. Great to get him in early. Considering the way rookie contracts are, and his position, that isn't a bad contract to have signed him too, and may be a slight deal (although i still feel its way to high, that is the way rookie contracts go). Great to have him signed early, nothing is worse than a holdout. Everything Sanchez has done has been in a positive light for me, and it makes me happy.

                      • New York Jets' Kris Jenkins tries a new position for a day

                        http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/200...nkins_tri.html

                        The last time Kris Jenkins played defensive end was 12 years ago in preseason camp as a freshman at the University of Maryland.

                        "And that was like for a day or two," Jenkins said.

                        But this week at Jets minicamp, head coach Rex Ryan has occasionally moved Jenkins away from his customary nose tackle position to defensive end. All a matter of experimenting, Ryan said.

                        "We know he can play nose tackle," Ryan said. "I also want to challenge him mentally to where he can learn all of the spots. That way, if we think we have a certain mismatch with our guy, then we'll put him in those spots."

                        Ryan made a similar move with Haloti Ngata while in Baltimore. But he said he sees Jenkins spending the majority of his time at the familiar tackle spot where has earned four Pro Bowl appearances.

                        Plaxico Burress' gun possession case adjourned until Sept. 23; New York Jets may make a bid for his services

                        http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/200...r_plaxico.html

                        Ex-Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress' felony gun case was formally postponed Monday morning in Manhattan until Sept. 23, and it's not out of the question that he could play an uninterrupted NFL season in 2009.

                        Burress' lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, told reporters that he doesn't think NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will take any disciplinary action against Burress until the case is resolved. Burress' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, agreed, telling a Miami television station Sunday night that Burress may not go to trial until after the 2009 season.
                        The Jets, Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have expressed interest in Burress. The commissioner may wait until Burress signs with a team before making a ruling. Thus, that team would be taking a huge gamble as to Burress' availability for the entire season.

                        The Jets have spoken to Rosenhaus only once -- just prior to the NFL Draft in April -- but they may resume discussions, especially after none of their receivers stood out during their recently concluded minicamp. The speedy David Clowney, whom the organization is high on, was inconsistent and I'm hearing his brilliant preseason performance against Cleveland last summer may have been because the stars were perfectly aligned that day -- perfect pass, perfect route, etc.

                        The Jets have not yet returned a call seeking comment.

                        Quarterback-turned-wide receiver Brad Smith and special teams ace Wallace Wright each had better camps than Clowney. Jets wide receiver coach Henry Ellard said the Jets "would love" to have Burress but he feels that they can still win without him.
                        That's a shame about David Clowney. Anyways I wouldn't be against getting Burress even before Goodell makes his decision. We could use a tall deep threat for whoever is at QB.

                          It is but, this just makes me more puzzled. WHY DIDN'T THE JETS SIGN A WIDE RECEIVER???? There were plenty that were out there. Most of them still are. Granted they're not what you'd call "good", but they seem to be better than what the Jets have now.

                          Drew Bennett is still out there.
                          Marvin Harrison is still out there.
                          Darrell Jackson is still out there.
                          Matt Jones is still out there.
                          Brandon Lloyd is still out there
                          Jerry Porter is still out there.
                          Koren Robinson is still out there.
                          Reggie Williams is still out there.

                          Why are the Jets not even trying any of these guys out???

                          Gah! :(

                            I can safely say that the latter five wouldn't fit in from a character standpoint. Bennett is overrated, Harrison is dying, and D-Jack can't handle pressure worth a damn. So that doesn't look like that great of a list to me. If we were going to sign someone, we should've signed Holt. But who knows. Maybe Brad Smith will be amazing somehow. If Randle El did it, I don't see why it'd be out of the question for him to be something similar.

                            And we got Greene signed. Pretty cool all of our draft picks are signed. Less cool that there was only three of them.

                              I don't think Bennett is overrated considering he's a FA this late into the offseason. And with Mangini gone and the Jets looking to sign Plaxico Burress, I don't think the character concerns of the people listed are that much of a concern.

                              I'm not saying these are good options by any stretch, but counting on Clowney to be a #3 WR looks worse after reading that. As for Brad Smith, I called Brad Smith "Stone hands #2" (Justin McCareins was stone hands #1) when he played in 2007.

                              :(

                                That's true. I guess we could get Bennett on the cheap. Of course, I would be willing to bet he'd get hurt in our weather, and I don't particularly fancy him a great blocker, which is something else I'd think they'd want. I don't know. It just seems like it'd be a waste to me.

                                But as for the character concerns, I was thinking of it in a different way. Some of those guys also have off-field issues, but all of them are "me" guys. I really don't think Plax is a "me" guy, and I think the most important thing to Rex is creating a team concept.
