On coming back to the Jets…

It means a lot to be back. I had some great times here. I feel like I left a small part of myself here when I left. To be back is great. I think I can come back and just provide a little bit of a (veteran leadership). I’m going into year eight. I’ll be 30 in a month. Don’t tell anybody. There’s some pride, some of the things we had last time I was here was fun and just getting after it.

On if having a rapport with Mark Sanchez helps…

It does. Mark and I have stayed in touch since I left. The big thing with us is that we’re friends off the field. We spend time together off the field, so we know each other a little bit. When you get in the locker room or in the meeting room or the field, that rapport helps to have that trust.

On if he was surprised to be back…

I was (surprised) to say the least. I always wanted to come back, but after this offseason, not really getting a phone call, I kind of thought that was it. I moved on mentally. To get back and kind of be in the same situation we were in in 2009, a lot of guys weren’t here but the guys that were, like you said, anything is possible. We didn’t even think we were going to get into the playoffs and low and behold we got to the AFC Championship.

On if he had to apologize for the tweet directed at the organization…

I didn’t have to apologize but I chose to. It was a statement that was made at the heat of the moment. You know how that goes. We’ve moved past that and I’m here and I’m ready.

On his health…

The health is good. Obviously, I have a hamstring tweak but we’ve been getting after it with the rehab. The training staff is doing a tremendous job in the day and a half that I’ve been here. They’re really getting in there and doing what they do best. I definitely think I have a high chance of going on Monday night.

On his participation in practice…

I got out there and you saw me. I went though some individual (drills) with Coach Sanjay (Lal). I ran a couple of routes with Mark (Sanchez) and Tim (Tebow) in there. It felt ok. I was able to do some things. It’s definitely a step in the right direction, a good sign, seeing as though it’s Thursday and we have about three days or so.

On if Pete Carroll mischaracterized his injury…

I don’t think Pete has an M.D., so no. I’m just joking. That was what they thought. That was his opinion and everybody is entitled to their (opinion). The Jets have a different opinion, so we’re moving based off of our doctors more so, not the coach and not myself. We’re moving off the doctors and the doctors are giving me kind of a blueprint on what we should do and how we should carry out the progression.

On when he became injured…

Two weeks ago. After the Chicago game I was waived injured. I didn’t get another week to be on the (injury) report.

On how he became injured…

It was the last play of regulation when Golden Tate scored. Well, it wasn’t the last play of regulation, but it was the last offensive play in regulation, Golden Tate scored. I was running a corner route and I got pushed off my route. I put the left foot in there to catch myself.

On when he found out the Jets were interested in him again…

To be honest, my agent knows how I am. I get pretty excited about things. I actually heard about it more so on Twitter and ESPN before my agent actually called me and put some validity to the situation. I really didn’t know for sure until maybe two hours before it happened.

On if he thought there was a chance he might not come back to the Jets because of his tweet…

I already thought there was no way that the Jets were interested. I figured with last year’s season and kind of how it went and this offseason, me rehabbing and getting after it and putting it out there on Twitter how good rehab was going, to not get a phone call or an invite to come in and work out and see what was going on, that was when I just mentally (thought), ‘Alright, it’s not going to happen. Let’s move on and get myself prepared for other situations.’ That was kind of when I was done with it. After the tweet, it was like, ‘Yeah I burnt that bridge.’

On if the Jets feel like home…

First and foremost, I had good success here. We went to two AFC Championships. It was very fun times for the team, my family and myself. I feel like I came here and gave a lot to the organization in terms of myself and I feel like it was well received. I felt as though this was home. I feel like I know all of the people in administration, by name. I know their background. I know the janitors. I know Ronaldo. I’m very cool with people here. I know everybody. It just feels like home and to leave it kind of hurts a little bit. It’s kind of like leaving college. You miss college. That’s just kind of how it was.

On if he believes he will play Monday…

I personally hope that I can go, that I’m good to (play). I hope I can go, but just based on how it’s progressing, I think I’ll be able to go on Monday just based on the progression I see. Once again, I don’t have my (M.D.).

On if there was awkwardness when he saw Mike Tannenbaum…

One thing about being here and like I said, the relationship that we developed here is that we’re all kind of goofy amongst each other. Everybody has a weird, funny or cool interaction. There actually wasn’t a moment of awkwardness. It could have been, but the kind of relationship that we developed while I was here, is being open. I used to call him Mr. Tannenbaum (and he would say), “No, I’m Mike.” Cracking jokes and them understanding them. There never was a moment of awkwardness. I met him for the first time, he was in the cafeteria yesterday, and I saw him and he was just as happy as me or so it seemed. The awkwardness wasn’t there.

On what gives him confidence that he can be the same receiver he was last time he was here…

Turn back the clock? Come on. I’m 29 (years old). Next month is January, I’ll acutally be 30 in February. I felt good this offseason after I had knee surgery in January and I rehabbed very hard down at the University of Miami. We got after it and I was in shape this year in training camp with Seattle and basically so far this season, with the exception of the last week and a half. I was in great shape. I’m trying new things. I feel great. I wish I could have showed it more or had the chance to show it more, but now I do. I feel good. I feel like I still have the same speed. I feel like I still have the same strength, if not better. I still have that understanding of the game. Being in year eight, I’ve seen a lot. I’m ready. You’ll get a chance to see when I get out there.

On if he’s paid attention to the quarterback situation…

It’s kind of hard not to pay attention to it considering it’s surrounding. I’ve had a chance to pay attention to it a little bit in terms of what ESPN said or what talk sports (radio) said or the comments you’re hearing here and there. I haven’t had the chance to call Mark and say, “Hey Mark, what’s going on?” I haven’t had the chance to talk to a player. It’s basically just what ESPN says.

Mo Wilkerson won't play for the Jets on Sunday afternoon, and it's possible he'll never play for the Jets again.

Jets coach Todd Bowles is considering turning Wilkerson's one-week punishment into something more, according to a team source, including possibly sitting him for the final two games of the season, too. And with Wilkerson now a virtual lock to be cut in March before his 2018 salary becomes guaranteed, that means he may have played the final game of his Jets career...

One of the few positives to emanate from the Jets 23-0 loss to the Broncos was TE Eric Tomlinson's competence as a long snapper. Tomlinson was forced into action after regular long snapper Thomas Hennessy went out injured.

"It's funny because when I walked up to him I said, 'Hey, man, you're up,'" Jets special teams coordinator Brant Boyer said, via Associated Press. "And typical Tomlinson, he looked up at me and said, 'I got you Boyer,' and gives me knuckles. He's that kind of guy, though, so he was great..."

Richard Sherman has kept tabs on former teammate Jermaine Kearse and went out of his way to praise the receiver. Sherman scribed a piece for The Players' Tribune called "Underrated Wide Receivers 101", highlighting who he believes to be underrated receivers in the league. He led with Kearse. 

The Jets acquired Kearse from the Seahawks, along with a second-round pick, for Sheldon Richardson just before the season started. Kearse has made 52 catches for 681 yards and 5 touchdowns this season-- all already career highs or on pace to set career highs. 

"It's safe to say that Jermaine is clutch," Sherman said. "And ridiculously underrated..."

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson is out for Sunday's game against the game after he was benched for showing up late to the team facility Friday. 

Wilkerson will not travel with the team to New Orleans as it was a 'coaching decision,' according to head coach Todd Bowles. Wilkerson supposedly showed up to the facility "very late," a source told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. This is the third straight year the 28-year-old has been benched for being late. 

This season, Wilkerson has been underperforming with only 3.5 sacks and 46 combined tackles.

Wilkerson will not play Sunday 00:03:02
The Daily News Live crew discusses Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson not traveling to play in New Orleans this Sunday due to tardiness.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Muhammad Wilkerson has no future with the Jets. He knows it and they know it. He'll be released long before his 2018 salary is guaranteed on March 16.

And really, there's no reason to wait that long anymore.

Wilkerson was punished by Jets coach Todd Bowles on Friday, after he showed up late -- very late -- to the team facility, according to a team source. Bowles immediately told the 28-year-old malcontent he wouldn't be traveling to New Orleans with the team for the game on Sunday. And according to one team source, his pseudo-suspension could last longer than that.

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson will not travel with the team to New Orleans to face the Saints on Sunday, head coach Todd Bowles said on Friday, saying it was a 'coaching decision' -- not injury-related.

Wilkerson was very late to the Jets' facility today, which is why he was benched, a source told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, who says it wouldn't be a surprise if this isn't just a one-game punishment, either.

Earlier this month, a day after he benched Wilkerson for most of the first quarter because he showed up late to a team meeting, Bowles said he still considers the 28-year-old defensive end a team leader.

John Morton on quitting vs. DEN 00:00:31
Jets offensive coordinator John Morton admits to calling it quits in Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos.

Jets OC John Morton said his team waved the white flag last Sunday against the Broncos, with his team trailing, 23-0, in the fourth quarter.

"Listen, the game was out of hand and I didn't want to let some bad stuff happen," Morton said. "At that time, I don't like to say, 'No mas,' but it was time to get out of there. They kicked our butts, they kicked our butts. Sometimes that happens in the National Football League."

"I don't know, a lot of ghosts around here," Kerley said, according to Newsday's Calvin Watkins. "Ghost put it in. You know the ghost of Christmas past."

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Bryce Petty will make his fifth career start for the Jets on Sunday in New Orleans because Josh McCown has a broken left hand and because, as Todd Bowles said, "Bryce is the next man up."

That's a nice, tidy coach-speak way of avoiding the obvious truth about that decision: Starting Petty makes very little sense at this point for the 5-8 Jets. They need to see Christian Hackenberg play...

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Josh McCown may be out for the season and unsigned for 2018, but he's not done helping the Jets young players just yet.

The 38-year-old quarterback was back on the practice field on Thursday, just two days after undergoing surgery on his broken left hand, and he will travel with the Jets to New Orleans this weekend for their game against the Saints on Sunday afternoon. There, according to Jets coach Todd Bowles, McCown will serve as a "player-coach" as quarterback Bryce Petty makes his first start of the year...

Jets LB Demario Davis has been a cornerstone of the team's defense this season, but it wasn't always that way. 

When returning to the Jets this offseason after a season with the Browns, fans and media crushed Davis, saying he wasn't worth bringing back after serving four previous season in Green & White. Davis didn't prove them wrong in the first two weeks of the season either as he struggled mightily on the field. 

Davis spoke with SNY's Jonas Schwartz and Willie Colon on "The Jet Stream Podcast" to talk about how he dealt with the pressure, and turned around his season...

The Jets worked out two CFL players on Tuesday: WR DaVaris Daniels and CB Garry Peters, reports NY Daily News' Manish Mehta. 

The 6-foot-1, 207 pound Daniels has played his past two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, who made it to the Grey Cup last season. In 13 games last season, the Notre Dame product caught 47 receptions for 743 yards and four touchdowns. 

Peters has played for the Edmonton Eskimos the past two seasons, where he most recently won the Grey Cup. The 5-foot-11, 190 pound cornerback notched 35 tackles and three special teams tackles this past season. 

As the custom with CFL players converting to the NFL, the Jets may be looking at Daniels and Peters for potential futures deals after the season. CFL players generally are not allowed to sign with NFL teams until their contracts expire in February.
