Opening Statement…

First off, news on Darrelle (Revis), he does have an ACL tear that’s going to require surgery, so that’s an update on him. Obviously, that’s a significant injury, and that’s something that we’re going to have to overcome as a football team. We understand that. For him, I feel bad about it because he’s such a great player, but also a great teammate, so we’re going to lose that presence. With that, I don’t know what else to say about it. I guess that’s the horrible thing that came out of the game. The good thing that came out was, obviously we found a way to win. We know what this game, the Jet-Miami game, what it means to Miami. We knew they were going to be a tough opponent, and they were. That hasn’t changed. My feelings after the game are the exact same right now as they were then. Obviously, that’s a pretty stout front seven, especially against the run. We knew it was going to be tough sledding, but our guys kept competing. I was really proud of the way we finished that game.

On if there is hope that Revis could return by the end of the year…

Well, again, I just found out five minutes ago about the ACL. I want to sit down certainly and talk to Darrelle, and we’ll do that first, before we decide if he’s on IR, if he’s not on IR. I want to talk to Darrelle. We’ve had seven players on our football team that have had this surgery before and are playing now. One of them is (Antonio) Cromartie. Cromartie had an ACL surgery. Certainly, it’s a big disappointment, but again, I know the way Darrelle is. This is a guy that is as competitive as it gets, and I don’t think there’s any doubt he’s going to come back strong from it. Again, like I said, before we ever do anything, I want to talk to Darrelle.

On his message to the team…

Everybody has to step up, and that’s it. I remember one game my first year here, I believe we lost Leon Washington and Kris Jenkins in the same game. Those are two outstanding football players, maybe one of them regarded as our best, maybe offensive weapon and one of them is certainly one of the best defensive players in the league, in Kris Jenkins. The very next year, we lose Kris after three plays. We have a history of stepping up. I’ve also had some experiences where you lose some corners. In Baltimore, I think we lost three or four corners in one year. Obviously, that was tough. We just have to pick it up and maybe we play some opponents differently. There’s different ways to skin a cat. You can’t just obviously take away their best receiver with one guy, but again, we’ll find a way.

On if he knew the extent of Revis’ injury last night…

When I saw him walking, and I talked to Darrelle on the plane, I could tell. He felt it was a significant injury obviously, a major injury, but I didn’t want to speculate on it until you get the MRI back. We knew it was a possibility.

On if the doctor told him about Revis’ injury last night…

Again, Dr. Montgomery wanted to make sure he saw the MRI. He had a feeling it was a significant knee injury, but he did not say specifically that it was the ACL.

On if Revis’ injury was a complete tear…

That’s my understanding, that it’s a tear.

On if his first priority is getting Revis fully recovered before he returns…

100 percent. No question.

On the recovery time for Revis and if there was any additional damage to his knee…

I don’t know the specifics of the injury and things. I think the doctors will know a lot more after they perform the surgery. There are some things and maybe there’s other things in there, maybe there’s not. I saw Cromartie and he talked about his surgery. Every one of them, every injury, is different. Certainly we’ll know a lot more after the surgery is performed.

On when Revis’ surgery will take place…

It might be two to three weeks before his knee (surgery). They do it differently now. They don’t just go in now. They try to get your knee healthier, then they perform the surgery.

On if he has seen Revis since last night…

No, I have not.

On where Revis’ MRI took place…

I’m not sure. It was here (in New Jersey). They never had a chance for an (MRI in Miami), or we would have performed it there. I’m not sure exactly where.

On how the defense will change without Revis…

Well, we’re fortunate because most teams only have one number one corner, or some don’t even have any.  We’re fortunate, we have the best in the league in Darrelle, and we also have a number one corner in (Antonio) Cromartie, so we’re fortunate there. We drafted Kyle Wilson to basically be a number two corner and that’s the way he’s going to play that role.  I’m confident in Kyle.  Then we have two young, tough players in Isaiah Trufant and Ellis Lankster that are going to have to step it up.

On if they have to be aggressive defensively…

I think sometimes you have to be.  The most aggressive defense in the history of the National Football League was the Bears, back when my dad was there. He played with three college safeties and a college receiver from Yale. That was how his back end was made up. But sometimes, you put enough pressure on them, you don’t have those throws down the field, so that’s something. We may be more aggressive. 

On how he plans to maintain team morale after losing Revis…

I look at it this (way). This is a team game, and as a team, we have to step it up.  Our guys, I think, will respond. We certainly have to accept the challenge, and we’re going to come out and compete. We might do it a little differently, but we’re certainly going to give it our best shot, without question. Is it a major blow when you lose a great player like Darrelle Revis? Of course, (it) absolutely is, but this is a football team. I think we showed that yesterday, too. There were plenty of times to get down in that game, but we kept fighting and kept believing in each other and that’s why we found a way to win. That’s (what) it’s going to take, it’s going to take everybody we have, pulling together like we are, and just keep competing, and we’ll see what happens at the end of the day.

On if Revis’s injury was non-contact…

It was non-contact. You can tell he went, and the (injury) was non-contact, and then the offensive lineman cut him as the play went on, but that wasn’t the injury.  He had already, you could tell, he had lifted his leg up where you could tell the injury took place.  Then, the center from Miami cut him, but that wasn’t a factor in the injury.

On whether he’s received an explanation of how a non-contact injury occurred…

That’s how a lot of these happen.  A lot of them happen that way, it’s hard to explain.  You can’t blame it on the astro-turf, we were playing on grass. It’s just one of those things, unfortunately.  Things like this happen, but it’s certainly unfortunate.

On if Revis being out will change other teams’ perceptions of the defense…

Certainly, when they look at it, you don’t have that match up with Darrelle Revis. Let’s face it, in some games, a great quarterback like Peyton Manning refused to throw to a great receiver like Reggie Wayne. He’s like, “Forget it, we’re going to work away from him.” So, you don’t have that necessarily.  But again, we have a lot of good football players. Guys are going to have to step up and pick our game up.

On if they will be able to be more aggressive without Revis…

You have to.  The big thing we have to do is stop the run better.  If you’re focused on trying to stop the run so much, you’re not going to be as aggressive coming after a quarterback when you’re not stopping the run.  I think that’s our biggest thing right now. When you look at it defensively, even though we’re in first place in our division, when you look at it, we have to step up and stop the run better.  These two opponents, you better step up, you have the 49ers and then you have Houston coming up.  Both of these teams can really run the football, so that has to be it.  If you want to get pressure on the quarterback, you have to stop the run on early downs.

On why they haven’t been able to stop the run…

It’s simple, you have to be gap sound. Sometimes, we get out of a gap, and they make you pay for it. And we have to tackle. It comes down to as simple as that. That’s how you play run defense. I know it’s a frustrating thing because two things are happening right now to our defense that I don’t think I’ve ever gone through a stage like this, where we’re struggling to stop the run and struggling to get off the field on third down.  Those are two areas that are generally a strength, and right now, we haven’t done a good enough job of that.

On if it’s a personal challenge to fix the defensive issues…

Sure, absolutely. It’s a personal challenge to me, (a) personal challenge to Mike Pettine, Bob Sutton. Every coach, any coach worth his salt, always takes things personally. You find ways of trying to help your guys.  It takes a total commitment from the players and the coaches.

On Revis’ mood when he talked to him on the flight…

It’s just disappointing. This guy wants to win. When you think of Darrelle, as great a player as he is individually, this guy is a great teammate and wants to win. He wants his football team to win. I think that’s why he was so excited about this year. We know we’re a better football team than we were last year and we’re committed, every man, every person in this building is committed to that. We see it going in that direction, yet, now we have that injury and he might not be able to help us on the field like he really wants to. Clearly, any time a guy goes through an injury, it’s tough. There’s no doubt. You could certainly see that on his face.

On if he said anything to try to boost Revis’ spirits.…

He knows what we think of him.

On if the offense can help make up for the loss of Revis…

Sure, as a team, we’re all about that. That’s it. We gave a game ball to (Coach) Tony (Sparano) yesterday and he talked about it, it’s a team game ball without question. He understands it. We all understand it. I don’t think people know how much of a team this is. Whatever it takes, that’s what we’re looking to do. Certainly, the offense will step it up. I think our defense will step it up, and so will the coaching. I don’t think there’s any doubt. We’re committed to that.

On if he had a moment of panic while reflecting on Revis’ injury…

(It) never happens. Nope, (it) never happens. We have enough to get it done here. I remember coaching (in Baltimore), we had a once-in-a-lifetime player in Ray Lewis go down for 10 weeks once and Ed Reed followed it up by I think going down for five weeks one season. We had a lot of injuries, but you find a way to get it done. We’re built, this football team, we have a bunch of competitors. We will find a way to get this done.

On Stephen Hill’s injury…

(Hill has a) hamstring. Again, we’ll see how he progress through the week, but that’s a hamstring on a skilled athlete, so we’ll see about this week. It might be kind of iffy for this week.

On if Bryan Thomas will be back with the team…

I’m not going to say anything, but we’ll see how things go as the week goes on.

On if the team waived Marcus Dixon…

Yes, we (waived) him. That’s to open up some other things that we feel like we need to do to help our football team.

On if they’re looking for help at cornerback…

We’re going to look for anything we think can help our team. We’ll certainly look at those possibilities.

On struggling to run the ball against Miami…

You have to give Miami credit. We talked about that. It was tough sledding. That’s for sure. Did I think we left some yards on the field? Yeah, absolutely. There was a chance to get the ball outside, just different things, but again, I would give credit to the opponent because they do an outstanding job stopping the run. That big (Paul) Soliai in the middle, they have some good football players. It’s not just against us. They’ve done an outstanding job all year stopping the run.

On Shonn Greene’s average per rushing attempt…

We’d like to get him going more, without question. We’d like to see him get that average up around over four yards a carry. Again, we’ll see. We’ll keep working at it and hope we can get some things going here.

On getting Joe McKnight and Bilal Powell more touches early in games…

That’s certainly a possibility that we’ll look into.

On if it’s possible McKnight and Powell could get more early touches…

It’s possible. We’ll look at anything we think can help our team. Has that been discussed? No. Every week we look at things, how we approach different opponents and things like that. I haven’t seen one tape on San Francisco yet. Anything we think can help, if it’s that Wildcat, (or anything else), we will look at all possibilities going into a game. Is that going to happen? I don’t know, but we will look at everything.

On the possibility of multiple personnel moves occurring this week…

There could be. We’ll look at everything. I don’t know what’s out there. Certainly, we do a tremendous job with our Pro Personnel Department, so we will look at all possibilities.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - He's been a disappointment on and off the field for most of the last two seasons, and he knows the Jets have tried their best to ship him somewhere else. Yet as the Jets begin preparing for the 2017 season, Sheldon Richardson is still on their roster.

And the Jets believe -- or at least hope -- he's returning more motivated than ever before.

"After just one day in OTAs, and watching him move around, this guy -- I shouldn't say (he has) a chip on his shoulder," said Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers. "I think he kind of has something to prove."

That seems obvious given how the last two seasons have gone. He's been suspended twice -- four games in 2015 for violating the league's substance abuse policy, and once last season after he was arrested for resisting arrest and other traffic violations when he was caught driving 143 miles per hour with a loaded gun and a 12-year-old in his car. He also had a disappointing five sacks in 11 games in 2015, and a dismal 1 ½ sacks in 15 games last year...

Jets OT Kelvin Beachum told Sirius XM Radio on Friday that he feels "great" despite not participating in an organized team activity that was open to the media this past week. 

Beachum, who is expected to be the Jets' starting left tackle, remained in the rehab area for most of the session and did not participate in any team drills. 

"I feel great, man," Beachum said via NJ.com. "I can really say I feel great."

The Jets will hire their first woman coach, Collette Smith, who will intern as a defensive backs coach in training camp, the New York Daily News reports.

Smith, a Queens, New York native, has been serving as a coach and marketing executive for the New York Sharks of the Independent Women's Football League.

"I'm over the top. I'm humbled and I'm proud," Smith said. "This could have happened with any NFL team. But it just so happened that it was with my beloved New York Jets. This is bigger because of that."

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Brandon Marshall was well aware of the "15 reasons" Sheldon Richardson had to be glad Marshall is gone from the Jets, and he knew the questions were coming. He even began his first press conference with the Giants by saying "Sheldon Richardson questions, go ahead and open it up."

But Marshall tried not to open up about his running feud with his former teammate. He preferred to stay as much as possible on the high road instead.

GEICO SportsNite: QB competition 00:01:19
Christian Hackenberg impresses in Jets workouts and Josh McCown talks about competing for the starting QB position.

The Jets have been pleased with QB Christian Hackenberg's performance so far this spring, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Hackenberg is in the mix with Bryce Petty and newly acquired veteran, Josh McCown, for the Jets starting quarterback position. Offensive coordinator John Morton told NJ.com that the QBs will be "getting the same amount of reps [with the starters] throughout the week." 

Hackenberg, a second-round pick by the Jets in 2016, has yet to see the field in regular season play.

Calvin Pryor's absence from the Jets organized team activities (OTAs) lasted only one day.

The Jets' safety was apparently back with his teammates and out at practice for Day 2 of the OTAs on Wednesday. A league source confirmed to SNY that Pryor was expected to attend, and one report indicated he was present. However, there was no media access on Wednesday, and Pryor was not shown in any photos or videos on the Jets' social media posts.

All OTA practices are voluntary, according to NFL rules. Still, the absence of the 24-year-old Pryor on Day 1 was noteworthy given his current situation. The Jets recently drafted safeties in both the first and second rounds, and then declined to pick up the fifth-year option on his contract, which will make him an unrestricted free agent next March.

Jets running back Matt Forte found former offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's backfield rotation "odd" last season, according to Darryl Slater of NJ.com.

Running in a committee system alongside Bilal Powell, Forte thought Gailey didn't utilize his talents properly and decided to criticize him at OTAs Tuesday.

"Chan Kind of did me on first and second down, and then put Bilal in on third, which is odd to say the least," Forte said.

Unanswered Jets questions 00:05:26
Jon Hein and Sal Licata run through the latest Jets news, including Sheldon Richardson's recent comments and the battles for QB and safety.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - On the first day of spring practice, the Jets' presumed quarterback of the future was relegated to a far field to work with the third-stringers, while a 37-year-old journeyman got the first-team snaps on the main field. That's probably the way it'll be when training camp opens this summer.

But not definitely, because the Jets continue to insist that their quarterback depth chart is subject to change.

As they have all offseason long, the Jets insisted again on Tuesday that their quarterback competition will be wide open this year, and new offensive coordinator John Morton promised the three quarterbacks will all get reps with the first-team offense. On Day 1, Josh McCown got all the first-team snaps and Bryce Petty worked mostly with the second team, while off in the distance Christian Hackenberg worked with everyone else.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - As a first-time NFL offensive coordinator, John Morton's offensive philosophy is a bit of a mystery. And for now, he prefers to keep it that way.

The 47-year-old Morton, in his first interview since being hired by the Jets, promised that his offense would be "competitive" but wouldn't even broadly describe the type of scheme he plans to run. He even promised that the offense would change, depending on whom the Jets are playing.

For what it's worth, quarterback Josh McCown confirmed what everyone suspected -- that Morton, who spent time as an assistant at USC and with the 49ers and Saints, will be running a "West Coast-style offense". But Morton preferred to leave the specifics out.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Even after the Jets drafted safeties in the first and second rounds last month, head coach Todd Bowles insisted there was still a place for Calvin Pryor. He talked about his plans to use three safeties in some defensive packages. And he seemed to believe Pryor could handle the increased competition, too.

"If you're afraid of competition," Bowles said earlier this month, "you don't need to be here."

On Tuesday, the first day of organized team activities (OTAs) for the Jets, the 24-year-old Pryor wasn't here.

That's not to say that he's afraid of the competition he'll surely get from Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, the Jets' first- and second-round picks. But with no reason given for why he was one of the very few Jets to skip the voluntary practice, it's hard to believe his absence isn't somewhat related. After all, the drafting of Adams and Maye was a clear signal that Pryor isn't in the Jets' future plans.

Former Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick explained losing his job as the starter last season as "a game of musical chairs," in an interview at Buccaneers OTAs.

After an abysmal 81-yard performance on Monday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 13, Fitzpatrick was ousted from his position as the Jets starter. Bryce Petty, a 2015 fourth-rounder, took his place for the rest of that 41-10 loss as well as the final four games of the season. 

Fitzpatrick was 3-8 as a starter last season. He threw for 12 touchdowns, 17 interceptions, and a 56.6 completion percentage. 

The Buccaneers signed Fitzpatrick to a one-year, $3 million deal this offseason.

Jets WR Devin Smith has cleared waivers and been placed on injured reserved, the team announced.

He had been waived/injured on Monday.

Smith suffered a torn ACL last season for the second time since the Jets drafted him in the second round in 2015.

"It's bad luck and bad timing because the kid worked so hard to get back," head coach Todd Bowles said during the NFL Draft, according to a press release. "He has to persevere and adversity will help him get stronger. But unfortunately in this game, over my course of time playing and coaching, you see these types of things. Some of the best athletes get hurt and don't get a chance to get on the field and it's just bad timing, bad luck."

Roger Goodell announced the NFL will be more laid back when it comes to touchdown celebrations this season, according to his Commissioner Letter. 

The NFL has been harsh when it came to players getting creative in the end zone, and after speaking with over 80 current and former players, Goodell decided it was time for that to change. 

"We are relaxing our rules on celebrations to allow players more room to have fun after they make big plays," Goodell said in his letter.

Former Jets CB Darrelle Revis may not find a new home in the NFL soon due to his bleak market value, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Released by the Jets on March 9, there has been no talk about Revis generating interest around the league. Cimini states his decline in performance and lack of passion and commitment have turned off any potential suitors at the moment.

Revis is no longer the shutdown corner he used to be due to age and injuries from his ten-year career. His latest injury came in 2012 when he tore his ACL in Week 3. He would need microfracture surgery to repair it which ended his season. This was one reason the Jets traded him to the Buccaneers the following year.

Last season, Revis had a significant lapse in production as he secured only one interception which came in Week 17. He amassed five in 2015, which was good for sixth-best in the NFL.

Jets running back Matt Forte says the Jets do not want a repeat of last season's locker room issues this year.

"Being in that locker room and going through that season, we know what the issues were," Forte told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday. "We identify those issues as a group and meet with the coaches and talk about, 'How do we change that? How do we change the culture in the locker room? How do we change the mistakes we made last year?'"

Forte went on to say that team leaders have conducted "a lot of meetings" with the coaching staff throughout the offseason, and have relayed the message to the rest of the team. The veteran running back touched on a topic that was brought up by WR Quincy Enunwa at the end of last season, about how the Jets simply did not play as a team.

Jets linebacker David Harris said on Monday at a charity golf outing that former Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis still has "a lot of football left in him."

"I think he'll keep playing," Harris said. "I think he has a lot of football left in him. He didn't have his best year last year, and he knew that. But I'm sure somebody will pick him up. He knows too much of the sport and he's too good of a player to be finished.

"I'm pretty sure he'll get picked up," he said. "I know Darrelle. He works hard. He's a student of the game. He loves football. So I think somebody will give him a shot.

Jets linebacker David Harris was surprised when the Jets selected safeties in the first two rounds of last month's NFL Draft.

"It's very odd to have two safeties get drafted in the first and second rounds," Harris said to Connor Hughes of NJ.com. "All you can do is trust [the front office's] decision and try to move on." 

New York selected LSU's Jamal Adams at No. 6, and 33 picks later, took Florida's Marcus Maye. It marked the first time in franchise history the Jets selected two safeties, and also defensive backs, with its first two picks.

While he expected the team to draft one safety, Harris said management "surprised everybody" by doubling down and selecting two.

Chad Hansen talks joining Jets 00:03:52
SNY's Ralph Vacchiano catches up with rookie WR Chad Hansen to talk about his long road to the NFL Draft, and his opportunity with the Jets.

In the last two years, the Jets have loaded up on young wide receivers. With all of the depth New York now has at the position, the team is ready for a great competition as the young receivers prepare to battle for a spot on the roster.

Quincy Enunwa and possibly Robby Anderson look like the two receivers whose spots on the team are secure, while veteran Eric Decker is returning from hip and shoulder surgeries and doesn't necessarily fit with the Jets' youth movement.

Second-year players Anderson, Charone Peake, and Jalin Marshall will compete in training camp with third-round pick ArDarius Stewart and fourth-round pick Chad Hansen as the young receivers fight to get on the field.

Jets WR Eric Decker is recovering well from hip and shoulder surgeries that were completed at the end of 2016.

According to SB Nation's Gang Green Nation, Decker said he is "back" and has "been doing everything." 

"The first phase was just the workout, so we were in the weight room and running," Decker said. "Now, we're on the field and I've been out there as a full participant. I feel great. It was a long four or five months, but to be where I am now and feel how I do, I'm excited."

The Jets have seemingly been searching for a franchise quarterback since Joe Namath was wearing green. So it's no surprise that Namath doesn't want to see them waste any more time in their search.

The Jets legend made it clear that he wants to see Christian Hackenberg emerge as the starting quarterback for his old team this season, not the soon-to-be-38-year-old Josh McCown. Speaking before the United Way's Gridiron Gala in Manhattan on Tuesday night, Namath said he understands why the coaches might go with McCown.

But he said if there's a chance the 22-year-old Hackenberg is the future, then the future has to be now...

A year ago at this time Quincy Enunwa was just a former sixth-round pick with modest credentials who had been used mostly as a pseudo-tight end in the Jets' offense. He hadn't had his breakout season yet. And he was very deep in the shadow of some talented veterans on his team.

One year later, he's essentially the elder statesman and potentially the Jets' No. 1 receiver.

Cornerback Jeremy Clark, one of the Jets' three sixth-round picks in the NFL draft, officially signed his rookie contract on Wednesday. Now he can focus on getting on the field.

Clark, whom the Jets took with the 13th pick of the sixth round (197th overall), became the last of the Jets' three sixth-rounders to sign, joining Ole Miss cornerback Derrick Jones (20/204) and Lousiana-Lafayette running back Elijah McGuire (4/188). The 6-3, 220-pound Clark, though, isn't quite ready to join his teammates. He's still rehabbing a torn ACL he suffered early in his final season at Michigan.

Woody Johnson thinks this Jets season should be measured by progress, not wins. Some Jets fans think the team should tank the whole season to secure the No. 1 pick in next year's draft. The expectations for this team could not be much lower.

Joe Namath understands all that. But count him among the few who believe the Jets will be a better team this year.

He scored 27 touchdowns and recorded 3,113 receiving yards in three seasons at Baylor, including 13 touchdowns and 1,215 receiving yards in his junior season in 2016.

Good thing for him he caught a Pro Football Hall of Famer's eye.

Former Jets quarterback Michael Vick, who doesn't know which quarterback will get the starting job this season, is not optimistic on the Jets' chances this year.

"Man, good luck," Vick said to Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey.com with a laugh. "I don't even know who the quarterback is going to be. Good luck. I know there's three of them."

The Jets do have three quarterbacks under contract, and will hold an open competition throughout training camp to determine who will be the starter. The team signed veteran Josh McCown to battle against youngsters Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.
