The NY Jets are set to open up training camp on Thursday. JetNation will be there and we will have full camp reports every day. One player that won’t be there when camp opens is 1st round pick Quinnen Williams, he is still not under contract. Manish Mehta has some strong words for the team and puts the blame on them for the holdout.
Why the Jets are clearly in the wrong in their contract impasse with Quinnen Williams…
The player loses $100K. The team literally saves $0.

The team announced that they have placed CB Brian Poole and OL Toa Lobendahn on the active/non-football-injury list. The Poole injury is concerning but there was no word on the extent or timing. Parry Nickerson is Poole’s backup.
