Notes to take away from OTA’s today


Wide Receivers had too many drops:

  • Getting Mark Sanchez to grow as a QB doesn’t always revolve around accurate thrown passes. The Receivers need to get their act together, because Sanchez can use all the help he can get, as he prepares for a turnaround season in his 4th year.

Kyle Wilson shows signs that he is progressing:

  • Kyle is in his 3rd year as a Cornerback for the Jets. He is doing well so far in OTA’s. He picked off a ball, thrown by Sanchez, intended for Dustin Keller. We really need Wilson to play big for us this year, because if he can’t, teams will have no problem picking on #20 and more importantly, avoiding #24.

 Tebow is not the best practice player:

  • What else is new? Tebow did go 4-5 passing at one point, including a nicely completed pass to Santonio Holmes.

Bart Scott was loud:

  • Again, what else is new, HA. Though there weren’t any serious fights, Bart played the instigator role, starting some pushing & shoving. Scott was also seen barking calls/orders and covering some ground. He plans to prove to the coaching staff that he DOES belong on the field with the starting defense.

Yeremiah Bell looks like a great offseason pickup (so far):

  • Bell intercepted Mark Sanchez–a diving pick on a ball in which Dustin Keller couldn’t hold on to. Bell has had a couple of picks already during this off-season’s OTA’s. That is pretty impressive, considering he is brand new to the system, and was recently signed just a couple of weeks ago. It’s really important that Bell gets a good grasp of the defense, to give us some insurance–if or when LaRon Landry’s durability becomes an issue

Hill has a Hamstring and Holmes removes himself from field:

  • -Santonio must have hurt himself during OTA’s, as Rich Cimini tweeted that he “May have injured himself. Tossed helmet.” Hill on the other hand, may have tweeked a hamstring, but it appears to be nothing serious (let’s pray).
  • UPDATE- Holmes removed himself, in attempt to ease back into practice. He wants to slowly increase his reps.

Kicking competition IS ON:

  • – Nick Folk and Josh Brown will be competing for the starting kicking spot. As for today, the two each went kick for kick (4-4)–”Up to 42 yards”, according to @Wesley_Sykes.

Defense looks to be further along than the Offense:

  • Tony Sparano apparently yelled to Tebow, “That’s not the plan”, after Tebow ran for a first down. He may have chose to tuck the ball and run after great defensive coverage, but one thing is for sure– Sparano got a bit frustrated that the D was dictating his offensive plans, and play execution.
