The “Jets West” camp is back. Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News is reporting that quarterback Mark Sanchez, as he’s done in the past, invited members of the offense to voluntary practice in Southern California between mini-camp (June 12-14) and training camp (late July).
Santonio Holmes, Sanchez and other Jets players attended “Jets South” an informal workout held near the receiver’s Florida home during the offseason, but no invitation was extended to newly acquired quarterback Tim Tebow. The move was not seen as a slight towards Tebow more of an opportunity to repair a damaged relationship between Holmes and Sanchez.
Sanchez made sure to invite his fellow quarterbacks Tebow and Greg McElroy to the “Jets West” camp and both have committed along with the following players:
In addition to Tebow and McElroy, nine players told The News they plan on attending Jets West: running backs Shonn Greene, Joe McKnight and John Conner; wide receivers Jeremy Kerley, Patrick Turner and Scotty McKnight; and tight ends Dustin Keller, Jeff Cumberland and Josh Baker.
Several other players, while not committing, have not ruled out possible attending.
This will be the third installment of “Jets West” as private workouts will be held at Mission Viejo High School, which Sanchez attended.
