Tim Tebow will be the biggest story at Jets training camp later this month. We don’t need to write about it for everyone to be abundantly aware of that fact.
This week, we take a look at five stories not related to that one. Five stories that we will be following come training camp, that are not related to Tim Tebow. Here is the first one, in no particular order:
The Battle at Kicker-

We have talked about this one before. Josh Brown vs. the incumbent, Nick Folk. Clearly, the Jets wanted competition for this guy. The reports were that ten minutes after Brown was released, the Jets were in touch.
Alan has been a passionate Jets fan since 1985. Obviously, that means he is a glutton for punishment, as he has suffered through many Jets disappointments. He remembers Mark Gastineau's late hit in the 1986 AFC Divisional Playoff game like it was yesterday. There have been many more failures than successes, but through it all, Alan has remained true to the Gang Green. He has been blogging for the Jets on various websites for the past 5-6 years. He lives and breathes the NY Jets all year round, and is committed to bringing the Jets passion to "The Jet Press" on a daily basis. Alan has also been recently named to the Pro Football Writers Association. Like what you read? Hit him up on twitter at @thejetpress
