Notes from New York Jets' Training Camp: July 24, 2014

Training camp has begun! The first workout is in the books! Can I get an amen and a hallelujah? OK, how about an “It’s about time!” ? Football is back, and not a moment too soon.

Here are some observations from today’s workout, culled from tweets sent by reporters that were in attendance.

    • Geno Smith was sharp: This is nothing but good news.  Other than one errant throw that was noted because it was almost intercepted, Geno Smith looked quite good.  He divided the snaps with Michael Vick 75% to 25%, and showed the fans in attendance why.
    • Clyde Gates did not: This probably doesn’t surprise many, but look at this troubling tweet regarding his performance today:

    This obviously is not a good sign for Gates, with all of the additions made at wide receiver coming into 2014.

          • Chris Johnson impresses: Everyone, including coach Rex Ryan, was impressed watching Chris Johnson on the field today.  Chris Ivory was bothered by a minor hamstring issue, so Johnson got the bulk of the work today.  Johnson caught passes out of the backfield, and was moving quite well.

           

             

           

          We will keep you posted, as usual, as workouts occur.
