Enjoy!
Jets safety Calvin Pryor as confident as ever after rough rookie season by Manish Mehta (New York Daily News)
"Pryor has the requisite skill set to be the intimidating, game-changing presence that the previous regime thought he could be when it drafted him with the 18th pick in 2014. The new coaching staff has moved him back to a more familiar role closer to the line."
Why Sheldon Richardson embraced Jets’ counseling after initially resisting by Dom Cosentino (NJ.com)
"Richardson said his counseling has been “somewhat” helpful with “just learning things about myself, dealing with life endeavors that have been hard for me to deal with, talking to someone outside of my circle.” Though he resisted at first, Richardson said it wasn’t hard for him to open up once he sat down for counseling sessions at the Jets’ facility."
Revis says Beckham needs to “step up to the challenge” by Mike Florio (NBC Sports)
"In addition to all of that, Beckham is concerned that defensive backs will target him physically in lieu of playing the ball, subjecting Beckham to the kind of big hits he didn’t see very often (if at all) in 2015. Come November 6, he may not be getting hit hard by Revis but Beckham could find himself covered like he never has been covered before."
After tumultuous summer, New York Jets set to break training camp by Rich Cimini (ESPN)
"It’s the final practice of camp, starting at 2:20 p.m. ET. When it’s over, the Jets will break camp. Obviously, it won’t have the same feel as past years, when they packed up in Cortland, New York, and headed home to New Jersey."
"“I’m just re-evaluating where I am right now. I’m not looking at where I was,” he told me. “Where I want to get to right now is my peak form. I’m just working to that every day, studying the playbook and just trying to play fast out there.”"
The hidden intangible Darrelle Revis brings to Jets by Brian Costello (New York Post)
"First, he’s still the best cornerback in the game. Second, he gave the franchise credibility again with a legit star in the building. But the Jets’ brass also hoped Revis could rub off on the young defensive backs in their locker room."
