As per the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is what Bowles said about what he’s seen so far during OTAs and mandatory minicamp:
We got a lot of things accomplished mentally. Again, the chemistry is growing. I can’t wait to get to training camp. We finished the last two days on good notes and the guys are upbeat as they should be. They just have to come back healthy and ready to go.
Bowles has preached all offseason long that no one should take anything seriously in these practices with players in t-shirts and shorts. The only real takeaway is players understanding and adapting to their respective playbooks and preparing for the real test and competitions come training camp.
Chemistry is a defining attribute that goes a very long way in turning the Jets into the kind of team Bowles wants to see. One that works hard, plays for each other, and above all else, does whatever it takes to win a lot of football games. It’s always great to see it begin to develop now rather than later.
