Jets | Coach unhappy with Mark Sanchez's OTA performance
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he was disappointed with QB Mark Sanchez after he threw three interceptions during organized team activities Wednesday, May 22. "Yeah, it is. Absolutely. It's a good thing defense makes the plays, but no, I'd rather him not turn the ball over once," Ryan said. "He did a lot of great things, and then those negative things, at the end of the day, that's what gets you beat. And so we got to do a better job of eliminating those turnovers."

Jets | Mike Goodson to plead not guilty
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson will plead not guilty to all charges, with the most serious being a second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. If convicted, Goodson would face a minimum three-year prison sentence under the Graves Act. Goodson's defense is confident they will show that he was not in possession of the gun. Goodson also faces a third-degree possession of a loaded handgun and marijuana and paraphernalia charges.
Jets | Could name starting QB soon
New York Jets QBs Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith are expected to compete for the starting quarterback job this offseason, but the quarterback competition could be settled well before the team even heads to training camp in July. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg wants one of the two QBs to separate himself from the other, and if that happens this week, the team isn't against naming their starter early. "Common sense tells you that you hope it's quick, but this is going to be a full blown competition. Period," Mornhinweg said. Sanchez, because of his experience, has the advantage to take control of the early competition. Smith, who spent much of his college days in shotgun, is spending a ton of time taking snaps from under center during OTAs with quarterbacks coach David Lee. Mornhinweg knows that the longer their QB competition lasts, the less time the winner will have to work with the first-team offense. The team also won't just name a starter to name a starter, they want a clear winner in the competition.
Jets | Mike Goodson meets with team officials
New York Jets RB Mike Goodson was in attendance at the team's first OTA practice Monday, May 20, but only to meet with team officials following his arrest on drug and weapons charges last week. Goodson didn't participate or watch the team's workouts, and his future with the team is uncertain. If Goodson pleads guilty or is convicted of unlawful possession of a handgun, he'll be subject to the Graves Act, which is a New Jersey law that carries a minimum of three years in jail.

Jets | Dee Milliner fires agent
New York Jets CB Dee Milliner became the second rookie on the team to fire his agency, Impact Sport, after he failed to be taken in the top five of the 2013 NFL Draft. QB Geno Smith also fired his agent after falling into the second round. Milliner must wait five days before hiring a new agency. Since 2000, Impact Sports has represented 12 first-round picks. He reportedly was slowly recovering from shoulder surgery before the draft, although teams were informed that it wasn't much of an issue.

Jets | Joe McKnight not giving up roster spot
New York Jets RB Joe McKnight said he is not going to give up his roster spot because the team brought in competition. "I don't care who they bring in, they're going (to have to) kill me to take my spot. You understand that now?" McKnight said in the locker room Thursday. "Just because they bring Goodson and Ivory in they already think I'm gone. They just bringing people in for competition, they ain't bringing nobody in to say, 'Joe is done.'"

Jets | Dee Milliner will not be given starting job
New York Jets defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman said CB Dee Milliner will not be given the starting cornerback job and will have to compete for the job. "If he earns the job, great, if he doesn't, it just means that someone else stepped up and performed at a high level throughout OTAs, minicamp and training camp," Thurman said. "We're going to play the best guys, no matter where they were drafted."

Jets | Geno Smith expects to learn from Mark Sanchez
New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he expects to learn from QB Mark Sanchez even though they will be competing for the starting quarterback job. "He's a guy I'm going to be in competition with but at the same time I'm going to learn from," Smith said. "He's a professional, he's done it for several years. He's carried himself well in my opinion. Everything that he's done, the ups and downs, the overall perception of him may be swayed depending on the games he's played, but I think he's a pretty good quarterback and I like forward to competing with him and being around him."
