Looking into Jets’ QB crystal ball and seeing Drew Brees by Rich Cimini (ESPN)

"There has been a lot of speculation about the future of injured New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who will be 37 with a $27.4 million cap charge in 2016 — the final year of his contract."

Jets need more consistency from ‘stinking’ offense to beat Eagles by Rich Cimini (ESPN)

"Don’t buy in just yet. Yes, the Jets have six touchdowns in two games, but consider some of the scoring drives — 9, 28, 19 and 9 yards. Thanks to a turnover-minded defense, they’ve been playing on short fields. There’s nothing wrong with that, but they need to develop more consistency on offense."

Jets’ Pass Protection Also Flirting with History by Randy Lange (

"“The sack was a screen pass gone bad. It goes down in the books as a sack but I don’t know if it really was,” he said. “I know the guys up front really pride themselves on that, avoiding the negative plays whether it’s in the running game or giving up sacks. So that’s something I pride myself on, too. They’ve done a great job so far.”"

Leonard Williams on his imprisoned dad, hair and life as Jets rookie by Steve Serby (New York Post)

"We talk pretty often. It’s not like this is my first time talking to him in a few years or something like that, but it’s always good hearing from him, and seeing how excited he is about me being where I am today."

Why Ryan Fitzpatrick has been sacked just once this season by Brian Costello (New York Post)

"I think you have confidence in the guy, but until you watch them play you don’t know what they are going to do,€ Gailey said. Watching him on the practice field, he has a ton of talent. He just needs to play. At some point, he’ll get his chance. I don’t know if that’s this week, next week, or when it will be, but at some point he’ll get his chance."

Jets’ Tight Ends Have a Job to Do, but Few Passes to Catch by Ben Shpigel (New York Times)

"Every situation is different, Davis said. We’re not in charge of who gets the ball every play. I feel like at some point, we’ll get some opportunities. We’ll capitalize on those opportunities, I know that. We’ve just got to be ready."
