Enjoy your afternoon cup of coffee with the latest news and updates on the New York Jets. Looks like they actually plan to have a real quarterback competition this summer.

It’s the middle of the week and well, makes the football world a few days closer to the 2017 NFL Draft. Nothing beats a nice iced cup of coffee this afternoon, especially on your lunch break to finish the day off strong. Below, you will find some of the latest news and updates from top sources on the internet about the New York Jets.

In an article written by Rich Cimini for ESPN, he confirmed that head coach Todd Bowles has officially stated the Jets will hold a competition for the starting quarterback position. It was an expected move since the Jets are rebuilding and can’t afford to just give out starting positions just because of someone’s name. Making sure that the best person earns that job and every other job up for grabs on the roster will foster a good environment that rewards those that deserve it.

In another article written by Rich Cimini for ESPN, he also confirmed that Bowles will be more involved on the offensive side of the football. This is not only important for his personal growth as a head coach but to also know that some of the boneheaded offensive plays called last season made no sense. Too many times the offense of the Jets were predictable, stale, and just had plays that should never be in an NFL playbook. Hopefully, Bowles will have his say on offense to ensure that things are better this time around.

In an article written by Randy Lange for the New York Jets, he broke down the official signing of offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison. This was a good move since it adds depth to the offensive line of the Jets which will be very important for the long season ahead. One of the best attributes about Harrison is he’s durable and has experience in literally every position on the offensive line. Another smart acquisition by general manager Mike Maccagnan, to say the least.

Finally, in an article written by Darryl Slater of NJ.com, he wrote about how the Jets are expecting much more this upcoming season out of defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson. Considering the Jets gave Wilkerson a monster contract last offseason, he hasn’t exactly come out of the gates overachieving. Yes, he was dealing with a broken leg injury but was also coming to team meetings late and well, as a veteran and a leader, those issues simply can’t happen. Hopefully, Wilkerson delivers a strong rebounding season in 2017 and avoids making headlines due to tardiness.
