Florham Park, NJ-See what’s happening around New York Jets:
1. Do you want to clouder Gonner? A year ago, the situation for Jets wide receivers was so dire that the season began as follows: Chris Hogan In starting lineup-same Hogan, who is currently a professional lacrosse..Improved position, which may sound crazy, but leads wide receivers Jamison Clouder It is a consumable item.
Add Corey Davis, Keeran Call And newcomers Elijah MooreDuring the three-week period of organized team activity, one of the best players on the field gave Jets a surplus that could cause other roster movements.They are Crowder, Moore, and Braxton Berríos, It was also shining during OTA. Cole also has a lot of experience in slots.
The future of Clauder is uncertain. According to Robert Saleh, Jets wants him back, but they’re trying to get him to cut his $ 10 million salary (non-guaranteed) by at least 50%. He skipped voluntary OTA due to a contract dispute. This week’s mini camp is a must. Sale said he expected Clouder to attend, but he certainly didn’t hear.
Jets has options.They can release Clouder by using some of the $ 10 million savings to sign a free agent if he disagrees with the reduction Morgan Moses, Who will be upgraded George Fant With the right tackle. The phantom can be a backup swing tackle. Meky Becton Addresses foot problems (plantar fasciitis). Jets continue to be interested in the recently visited Moses.
Technically, New York has enough caproom to keep the crowder And Signing Moses, they may be trying to save some cash after paying nearly $ 80 million guaranteed by a free agent.
If Jets and Crowder agree to a restructured contract, it will not prevent them from doing business with him. If Moore continues to impress, what’s the point of maintaining a crowder? Saleh, called Moore, was drafted 34th overall and was a “dynamic youth” with great versatility.
Crowder, who turns 28 on Thursday, is a good player, but he has finished the 699-yard season and has the 16th highest cap charge ($ 11.4 million) in wide receivers. He is the final year of the contract and will leave as a free agent after the season. If Jets can get something for him, they should do it and pave the way for Moore.
Perhaps trying to control the hype, Saleh tapped the brakes when asked to provide a progress report on the second overall pick. He is now all pink and “best learning comes through adversity and confrontation … until we hit adversity, we talk about each other and more about how we treat things. You will be able to learn. “
At the time, former coach Bill Parcells expressed similar feelings in a different way.
Wilson took on the charge of all the first teams and was solid, if not stellar, at OTA. Of the five practices published in the media, he never looked like an overwhelming rookie. That is encouraging. Jets is in full “Get-Wilson-ready-to-start” mode because there are no veteran quarterbacks on the roster.

3. From this world: Defensive end Carl LawsonHaving received a big contract (3 years, $ 45 million), he has great expectations for himself. He did not share his particular goals, except that he wanted to be “another world.” Yeah, he said so.
“I feel the sky is the limit, but this is life,” Lawson said. “Because of external factors, not all the goals you set will be achieved, but I will do my best to reach my highest level of potential and what I think I can do, a different world. I will do my best. “
He is a different world Cincinnati Bengals -20 bags in 4 years. This is the number of pedestrians, but Pass Rush’s win rate (18.9%) in that span is impressive, ranking 29th according to ESPN Stats & Information.It was the shade below Chicago Bears Star Khalil Mack (19.3%). Jet expects him to turn some of those “wins” into bags.
4. Under the radar: At OTA, a few non-starters, including defensive ends, stood out. Bryce Huff, safety JT Hassel, Rookie cornerback Izayadan, Defensive harness Tanzel smart And wide receiver Manassa Bailey..Defensive end Jabari ZnigaThe rookie season was a washout due to an injury, flashing from time to time. With additional competition on the defensive line, his roster spot is not a gimmick.
Another 2020 draft topic, safety Ashtin DavisI didn’t participate because of a serious leg injury last season. He attended the meeting but missed the long-awaited practitioner. Davis, who started six games as a rookie, is probably considering a backup role.
5. Survivor: For temporary professions, the special team coordinator, Brandt Boyer, is outlier. He is in Jets for the sixth year. So he works for the third head coach.
Boyer went fishing in Nevada for five days after the 2-14 disaster last season that led to the expulsion of director Adam Gace. When he heard that Saleh was hired in late January, he thought it would be a good idea to return to New Jersey and interview his new boss to continue his work.
“I’m pretty lucky,” Boyer said of his longevity.
6. Do you know? Jets went on for the fifth consecutive year without an individual 1,000-yard receive season. This is the longest drought in the league. They have some “longest active droughts”. Maybe we should call them LAD.
7. Be quiet: For two years under Gase, the loudest voice on the driving range belonged to the voice of defense coordinator Greg Williams, who was not shy about raising the decibel level. His successor, Jeff Ulbrich, is not the type to yell. To be honest, Sale doesn’t want his coach to be Yeller.
We count it as No. 136, the difference between the current staff and the previous staff.
The other is: Unlike Gase and Williams, who joined together in a marriage arranged by the previous front office, Saleh and Ulbrich are old friends who share a similar defensive philosophy. As Ulbrich said, “secret sauce” is simplicity and player first. In other words, there is a player-friendly scheme that is not difficult to master, emphasizing basics and techniques over smoke and mirrors.
This is a departure from Williams’ way of relying on exotic fronts to confuse his enemies. He liked to brag that his playbook had over 40 different fronts. 2019 was pretty good, before everything leveled off last season.
The Saleh / Ulbrich method is great because it should allow you to quickly integrate young players into the season. Also, everyone knows that Jets has a lot of young players. Disadvantages: It works simply if you have a horse, but Jets is still not enough talent to win. This is a process and it is more and more painful.
The important thing is to get the players to agree. So far, it’s been very good, according to linebackers. Jarad Davis.. Speaking of Ulbrich and his defense assistant, Davis said their enthusiasm “leaked out of them and oozes out of them. When we itchy, they know what to scratch.”
8. Last word: “He’s a dog. I like Zach Wilson. He has a lot to learn and will put a lot of pressure on him, but he’s good at it and throwing the ball.”-Jet runs back Tevin Coleman..
