Cimini says it probably won't happen. Hutchinson says it's "very remote," though that's been changed from "absolutely dead." Boland's blog isn't loading for me right now. Here's a quick rundown of what's going on in terms of the Jets and not Favre. I've been guilty of jumping on that bandwagon because it's a good story, but it would also make a hell of a lot of sense for this team.
Here is a quick rundown.
Kellen Clemens and Chad Pennington haven't been particularly impressive. Clemens has been up and down, while I haven't read an overly positive review of Pennington at camp yet. Nothing too negative either, just the same old Chad.
Danny Woodhead has been waived. The record-setting 5'7" back from Chadron State whose story made the NFL Draft telecast suffered an injury at camp yesterday, and the Jets waived him today. Bad news for him and for his fans, especially since he had been getting a good amount of reps at camp.
Wallace Wright was very impressive in camp yesterday. Could he have an outside chance at the #3 receiver spot? Chansi Stuckey and Brad Smith are the two favorites for that role, but Wright has been on the team for two seasons, so he's certainly as familiar with the system by now as either of the other two.
Cimini also reports that Mangini has stressed that his quarterbacks throw the ball away more instead of forcing balls into coverage. This is clearly directed more at Clemens than Pennington.
Finally, old friend LaMont Jordan signed a deal with the Patriots, joining Victor Hobson as the two newest ex-Jets-turned-Patriots. I know you're all worried about him turning it around with the Pats and running all over the Jets, but Jordan first needs to be concerned about earning a roster spot.
