New York Jets’ First-Time Head Coach Todd Bowles Keeps Cards Close to His Vest by Ty Schalter (Bleacher Report)

"So far, it’s seemed as though Bowles simply isn’t showing all his cards. He’s one of the NFL’s most creative, flexible defensive architects, and the Jets defense has been rather vanilla over the first two preseason games."

Players’ lounge ATM adds to insult of Geno stiffing Jets ’mate: Bart Scott by Brian Costello (New York Post)

"When Scott was with the Jets, the defense often got annoyed with Sanchez over his play, frustrated by his turnovers. Still, Scott said no one would punch him … well, maybe one guy."

Jets Sign LB Johnson, Release TE Maneri by Eric Allen (

"Johnson, a Bellport, NY native, played collegiately at West Texas A&M and spent time on the Bills’ active roster and practice squad in 2014. After signing a reserve/future contract with the Bills last December, Johnson was waived by the Bills in June."

A faster Chris Ivory needs 1,000 yards for Jets to challenge for playoffs by Rich Cimini (

"Because he’s not a self-promoter, Ivory doesn’t create much buzz on a national scale, but there’s no denying his importance to the Jets. If the Jets want to end their four-year playoff drought, Ivory must crack the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career."

"People will decide that. It is what it is. [It’s] rightfully so for my part, but that was five, six years ago. All I can do is look at myself in the mirror and be the best guy I can be every day."

Brandon Marshall is changing his QB killer rep, 1 heckler at a time by Brian Costello (New York Post)

"There is no questioning Marshall’s ability. He has been to five Pro Bowls and has freakish ability to catch footballs and make things happen on the field. The Jets have not had an offensive talent like him in years."
