Do the Jets have another breakout star on the roster on defense? The Jets believe that they do.
His name? Mo Wilkerson.
The team feels that Mo is ready to make a big leap in this, his second year with the team. Mike Pettine has certainly liked what he has seen so far.
“Looking back on the spring, if I had to rank our guys – outside of Revis – he was the best player on the field,” defensive coordinator Mike Pettine told me. “He was dominant at times … He doesn’t take a day off. He doesn’t take a play off.”
Rex is his usual over-complimentary self as well:
Revis is Revis out there,” Ryan said. “Every day he competes. (Wilkerson) has some of the ability where I think (he) can take it to that next level. Can he be Revis? I don’t know.”
