Practice was canceled today. Conspiracy theorists, rejoice in thinking this has something to do with the F-word, but the only news on that front is that he did file his reinstatement papers, so it does look like he will officially play, and the cancellation probably has nothing to do with that.

Mangini was questioned about trying to force his methods to the Jets, especially regarding the 3-4, but this offseason is going a long way towards fixing that. Of course, it means nothing if the Jets don't win games, but it looks good on paper.
Mike Tannenbaum was on the WFAN morning show with Boomer and Carton, where he did what he does best, saying nothing.
“Here's where we're at with that. Teams call us, we call them as we’re tweaking the roster throughout training camp. Those conversations have been and always will be private between us and other teams and this is no different."

Some good stuff in the beat writers' blogs such as Vernon Gholston blowing past some of the second stringers. Boland has some information about that yesterday.

Some other news and notes.
Leon Washington is getting primary reps at kick returner, but Darrelle Revis, Chansi Stuckey, and former Pro Bowl returner Justin Miller are also getting chances.
