Do You Have What It Takes to Join the Jets?


Imagine what it might look like if the Jets were searching for one final piece to their 2009 on-field puzzle ...

The candidates sweating and straining in a competition under the watchful eyes of Jets talent evaluators ...

Joey Clinkscales, the Jets' vice president of college scouting, fielding questions from reporters and providing soundbites on the star search for that player with the right measurables, with those certain intangibles ...

You don't have to imagine it because the Jets have helped frame the search for that one special individual, the person who will lead the Green & White out of the Meadowlands tunnel on Fan Appreciation Day on Oct. 18.

And yes, candidates were recorded trying out for the post and Clinkscales did hold a news conference to hype the hunt.
