Jets Sign DT Howard Green

The New York Jets have re-signed 6-foot-2, 365-pound nose tackle Howard Green to take the place of injured defensive tackle Kris Jenkins.

Greenappeared in 12 games for the Jets last season, registering 23 tackles. He signed with the Washington Redskins this offseason but was cut.


Albert Haynesworth To Replace Jenkins? Probably Not

Well, speculation about this should be no surprise.

With All-Pro nose tackle Kris Jenkins shelved for the year with a knee injury, speculation quickly turned to whether the Jets would pursue a trade with the Washington Redskins for talented but troubled Pro Bowl tackle Albert Haynesworth.

NFL Network inside Jason La Canfora checked in on the subject on Tuesday, calling it doubtful. Actually, La Canfora said he’d be both “surprised” and “shocked.” So that’s comfortably being categorized as doubtful, for now.

Looking at compensation, it’s widely believed the Redskins have been seeking a second-round pick in return for Haynesworth. La Canfora believes the Redskins won’t get more than a fourth- or fifth-round pick for the two-time first-team All Pro.

Given Haynesworth’s reluctance to play in the Redskins’ 3-4 defense, there’s little reason to believe there’s a fit with the Jets, who run a base 3-4 but often use different packages. Beyond the reported $16 million due over the final three seasons of Haynesworth’s current contract, a prospective team must consider adding his personality to its locker room.

So, it does not look likely. It is, however, a question that had to be asked.


Jets Re-sign Clowney, Release Woodward

The New York Jets have signed wide receiver David Clowney and have waived running back Danny Woodhead. The announcements were made by General Manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Clowney rejoins the Jets after being waived on Sept. 5, 2010. In his two seasons with the Jets, Clowney has played 15 games and caught 15 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown. He established career-highs last season with 14 catches for 191 yards in 13 games. Originally drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL Draft, he was signed off the Green Bay practice squad by the Jets on October 3, 2007.

Woodhead was signed to the active roster on Oct. 17, 2009, and appeared in 10 of the final 11 games of the 2009 regular season. He recorded eight receptions for 87 yards and rushed for 64 yards on 15 carries. Woodhead was previously signed to the practice squad on Sept. 8, 2009, after being waived Sept. 6. He originally signed with the Jets on May 2, 2008, as an undrafted free agent and spent the 2008 season on injured reserve.


Torn ACL Finishes Jenkins' Season

New York Jets nose tackle Kris Jenkins is done for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee.

That is a big hit for a Jets team built around its defense. Jenkins is a four-time Pro Bowler and two-time All Pro.


Jets Wait For Word On Jenkins' Knee Injury

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said Monday night he has “no idea” at this point how severe the knee injury suffered Sunday by nose tackle Kris Jenkins is.

“Obviously, it’s a huge loss. There are very few Kris Jenkins out there,” Ryan siad. “That’s a huge loss. I have no idea what the extent of the injury is, so I’m hopeful that it’s not serious, but clearly it was enough for him not to return to the game. We’re definitely hoping that he’ll be OK.”

The Daily News reported that Jenkins will have an MRI today. The Jets will hold their breath and await the results.


Jets Manage Only 60 Yards Passing

East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) – Joe Flacco led an adequate pass attack with 248 yards, and the Baltimore Ravens won a defensive battle with the New York Jets, 10-9, to open up the 2010 schedule for both clubs at New Meadowlands Stadium.

Flacco completed 20-of-38 passes and threw an interception for the Ravens (1-0), who have high expectations this season after a loss to the Colts in the divisional playoffs a year ago. New acquisition Anquan Boldin hauled in seven passes for 110 yards, while Todd Heap added six catches for 72 yards.

Willis McGahee scored the game’s lone touchdown, while Ray Rice added 43 yards on the ground.

The story of the game was the Ravens’ defense, which wasn’t nearly as hyped as their top-ranked counterparts in New York. Baltimore held an anemic Jets offense to just 176 yards, including only 60 through the air.

Mark Sanchez was highly ineffective when given the opportunity for the Jets (0-1), throwing for 74 yards on 10-of-21 passing. New York, which went through the “Hard Knocks” series on HBO earlier this summer, was billed by many to be a Super Bowl contender after a surprise run to the AFC Championship Game in 2009.

LaDainian Tomlinson, in his first game with the Jets after leaving the Chargers via free agency, ran 11 times for 62 yards, but penalties plagued New York throughout the game. The hosts committed 14 infractions for a total of 125 yards, their highest total since 1988.

Rex Ryan, a former assistant with Baltimore for 10 seasons prior to his hiring in New York, was unable to top his old club in the first matchup against them.

Ryan Says Jets Will 'Try To Smash' Lewis

Ah, some good old-fashioned trash-talk. We have ourselves a war of words between the Baltimore Ravens and the New York Jets.

A day after Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis ripped the Jets for talking too much, Jets coach Rex Ryan responded.

“Sounds like we got under Ray’s nerves,” Ryan said. “I got a lot of respect for Ray. It doesn’t matter what he says in a negative light. I still respect him. But we are going to try to smash him, I can tell you that much.”

Is it Monday yet?


Opener Is A Sell Out

The New York Jets have finally sold out their season opener against the Baltimore Ravens, avoiding a blackout of Monday night’s game, the team has announced.

There are no non-premium seats available, according to Matt Higgins, the Jets’ executive vice president of business operations. There are 1,500 premium seats still available, but those seats don’t count toward the blackout rule.

About 10 days ago, the Jets revealed that 96% of the non-premium seats had been sold, leaving them about 1,500 shy of a sellout, but team officials maintained there would be no blackout. A published report Monday suggested that owner Woody Johnson would have to buy the remaining seats to avoid a blackout, but that isn’t true, according to a source.

A blackout would have been a real black mark for the Jets organization, which will be playing its first game in its own stadium on Monday. So, this is good news.


Jets - Ravens Should Be Defensive Struggle

The Sporting News previews Monday night’s Baltimore Ravens – New York Jets matchup. Here is TSN’s bottom line.

After a crazy, attention-filled summer, Jets’ players certainly will get an emotional boost from the return of the well-liked Revis, who not incidentally makes their defense much better. In fact, feelings will run deep on both teams, as Jets’ coach Rex Ryan was passed over for the job that eventually went to good friend John Harbaugh, and still feels snubbed by the Ravens, for whom he served as defensive coordinator. The game could get chippy considering that each team prides itself on not backing down. Defense figures to reign, and the Jets are slightly better in that category.


Ryan: 'No Way' Ravens Try To Attack Revis

The condition of cornerback Darrelle Revis, who practiced for the first time Wednesday, was a major part of Rex Ryan’s post-practice press conference Tuesday.

Here are some highlights.

On how Darrelle Revis looked…

He looked good. Actually, I’m supposed to say from the defensive staff that he looks slow, maybe we’ll rotate him in. That was from Mike Pettine. I don’t know. We may just spell him a little bit to give Baltimore hope that he’s not out there. Everybody that knows me knows he’s going to play.

On if the Ravens will come after Revis…

I can certainly see them doing that. The guy has missed all of training camp. They should do that. Find him and go to him and go to him often. They’re smarter than that. They’re not coming after him. No way, no chance of it.

It almost sounds like Ryan is baiting the Ravens, daring them to attack his best player. We will see how it turns out Monday night.
