This offseason, Jets coach Rex Ryan has talked about how with the new additions on defense, the squad has the chance to be as good as they were in 2009.
As we all know, LB David Harris is a big part of that defense. He agrees with the coach, on the team potential. Take a look at what he had to say on the subject during his summer Q and A with Jenny Vrentas:
I agree. Right now, we’re just flying around, having a good time. We have some new pieces. Especially Yeremiah Bell, who’s coming from the Miami Dolphins, who is a great vet and a great leader back in the secondary for us. The rookies — Quinton Coples is going to play a huge role for us up front. He’s a big athletic guy, who has plenty of upside and potential. He’s going to spend time with (defensive line) coach (Karl) Dunbar to get him up to speed and get him ready for a long season in the NFL. Then we have Demario (Davis), who provides us with tremendous athletic ability. He can run like a deer, so he’s going to play a huge role in our defense, especially in our sub and nickel packages, and special teams. There’s a lot to look forward to, and I just can’t wait to get started.
