OTA Roundup

Florham Park Jets training camp

The New York Jets began organized team activities this week, which included its fair share of interesting news.

The Quarterback Competition

From NY “You don’t make that prior to training camp — you haven’t played in any games,” head coach Todd Bowles said of how the process of deciding on the starter for Game 1 at Buffalo on Sept. 10 will play out. “We’re in shorts and T-shirts. I can compete right now. Just throwing the ball around, you’re not hitting the quarterback, that’s pretty easy.”

In my opinion, OTAs don’t really mean much in terms of competition, but if Hackenberg or Petty want to beat out McCown for the starting gig, they needed to show at least SOMETHING this week.

Prediction: McCown starts week 1; Hackenberg takes over week 5 @ CLE

Rookie Contracts

Most of our rookies are now under contract, with the exception of 1st round pick, Jamal Adams. All the deals are the standard 4 year rookie contracts.

This weeks signings include:

ArDarius Stewart (WR)

Marcus Maye (S) & Dylan Donahue (OLB)

Our other signings before OTAs were:
Jordan Leggett (TE)
Chad Hansen (WR)
Derrick Jones (CB)
Jeremy Clark (CB)
Elijah McGuire (RB)

We’re waitin’ on you Jamal!

Another tough break for Devin Smith

I certainly feel bad for this man, but at least the Jets were able to retain him on the IR. I wish him a quick and speedy recovery, but in the mean time look for Chad Hansen, rookie WR out of Cal, to play the deep threat role. According to ProFootballFocus, Hansen was thrown 17 catchable deep balls (20+ yards in the air) and caught ALL 17. This is exactly what the offense need to stretch the field and the Jets should be very excited to have him.

Jets waive/place Brisly Estime on IR; Sign DB Corey White

Tough break for Brisly Estime, WR/KR/PR from Syracuse University. He had a decent chance to make this team as a return man considering we lacked excitement at the position. Unfortunately, a torn achilles’ tendon will put an end to his hopes for this season. Following Estime’s injury, the Jets announced the signing of DB Corey White, who recorded 30 tackles and 2 interceptions with the Buffalo Bills last year.

Training camp begins in Mid-July. Let’s get excited! Go Jets!
