AFC East Q&A: What to do about Ndamukong Suh? by James Walker (ESPN)

"The Jets’ first game against Suh is Week 4 in London. If I were them, I’d try to upset his stomach with some week-old fish and chips. Yeah, he could be a major problem for the Jets, who may have some issues on the offensive line, especially at right guard."

AFC East Q&A: Which Bill will defenses focus on? by Mike Rodak (ESPN)

"This one’s easy — Clay. It’s not because Clay is better than Watkins, Harvin and McCoy; it’s because the Jets have been dreadful when it comes to defending tight ends. They allowed a league-high 14 touchdowns by tight ends in 2014."

Jaworski Likes Jets’ Future with Geno at QB by Eric Allen (

Jake Heaps Takes Aim at Making the Roster by Randy Lange (

"“At the end of the day, I think what’s helped me have success up to this point is putting on the blinders in terms of what’s going on around me, just focusing on what I can do and how can I improve each and every day,” Heaps told me recently. “I’m not focused on anybody else. I’m just focused on how can I get better and maximizing the reps that I get.”"

Darrelle Revis, Patriots defensive backs to work out together in July by Josh Alper (NBC Sports)

"“It was good for us to just be out there and just get more camaraderie with each other and just hang out with each other a lot every day,” Revis said of last year’s workouts, via the  . Associated Press"

Predicting the Last 5 In, Last 5 out for New York Jets’ Final 53 Man Roster by Erik Frenz (Bleacher Report)

"No one ever wants to see the backups on the field—that means that the starters are either struggling or injured—but the battles for backup spots will be taken just as seriously as the battles at the top of the roster."

Why Geno Smith’s last chance won’t be like the others by Brian Costello (New York Post)

"In his second season, Smith remained maddeningly inconsistent for the Jets coaches. He had some really positive moments (a perfect QB rating in the season finale with the Dolphins) and some downright awful ones (three interceptions in 12 plays against the Bills in Week 8)."
