Jets linebacker Avery Williamson visited with SNY's Jeané Coakley to discuss the new coaching staff, C.J. Mosley's arrival on defense, and how he's feeling following OTAs.
Williamson told Coakley that the communication on defense, in an effort led by new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, has been solid, especially for a new coaching staff.
Williams is not afraid to call out those who aren't giving max effort at all times, Williamson said.
"He emphasizes running to the ball every day. It's going to be ingrained in our heads on game day to run to the ball."
While Williamson may yield some of the primary responsibilities he held on defense last year to Mosley, he'll still be comfortable enough to make calls on the field.
"I'm getting used to it now," he said. "At the end of the day, we're both Mike linebackers. ... We're just trying to make it as smooth as possible."
As for Adam Gase's acumen on the other side of the ball...
"He'll do anything. He's going to try to make something happen," Williamson said. "He's got the talent to do it. They got some playmakers on that side of the ball."
The firing of former general manager Mike Maccagnan caught him off guard, but he still wished him nothing but the best.
"It was definitely tough," Williamson said. "The business that we're in, you never know what could happen."
