Winters is Coming
"I have a chip on my shoulder," said right guard Brian Winters. "I've had a big chip on my shoulder since my rookie year. They finally made the transition for me over to right guard and since then it's been a lot better. I'm a natural right-sided player, so everything's moving right along."
"As soon as they got Fitz back, I felt much better, like a lot of people," said SiriusXM NFL Analyst Pat Kirwan. "I talked to Ryan this morning, and you know, I parallel his career to Richie Gannon. Gannon was 34 when he found Jon Gruden and Gruden found him [on the Raiders]. So with Chan Gailey again this time around, I think Ryan's very much energized."
Iron Sharpens Iron
"It's not only on the field – it's off the field," said Brandon Marshall of his competitive relationship with cornerback Darrelle Revis. "We're walking through the halls, we're in we're in meetings every single day, we push each other every single day. But people need to understand that we're friends, really close."
"I can't sit there and say he'll be OK or not OK," said head coach Todd Bowles regarding Matt Forte's health. "Right now he's not in jeopardy of missing any time, but we'll see as the days go by."
"I'm pretty much focusing on attacking up field," said a 12-pounds lighter Steve McLendon. "My attack is different because in Pittsburgh I was a two-gap guy and here I'm still a two-gap, but it's more of an attack two-gap. Attack the guy in front of me and beat him across his face and shed blocks faster."
"Clady is really good, really talented," said James Carpenter regarding new Jets left tackle Ryan Clady. "I love playing next to him. He is so athletic it's crazy."
Run, Jace, Run!
"This summer I really did just speed training," third-year tight end Jace Amaro said. "Running has a lot of technique to it. You can't just go out there and push a 1,000-pound sled 100 yards every single day and expect to be fast. There are a lot of mechanics that go into it and that's something I learned this summer and I feel a lot better."
Mo Itching to Return
"The D-line is working hard every day," said Muhammad Wilkerson, who is currently on the PUP list. "It can be great as long as we keep pushing each other. I'm liking what I'm seeing. I can't wait to get out there with my brothers."
"I had an okay season, but I can be better," safety Calvin Pryor said. "When I got hurt last season, I felt like I missed out on a lot of opportunities, so I'm just looking to bounce back."
Rookie vs. Superstar
"I love it. I want to guard the best, and he's the best," said rookie cornerback Juston Burris referring to Brandon Marshall. "That's how you're going to get better — beating the best. I know whether or not I got beat, or made a good play, that I got better with that rep.
"This time I worked on a lot of change of direction stuff, in and out of cuts and I did a lot of hills," Bilal Powel said regarding his offseason workouts. "I did a bunch of band resistant workouts, I tried to stay away from the weights and do more lean stuff to help build muscle endurance."
Reps Are Key for the Aussie
"Everyone is relying on me now, which is what it's going to be like every fourth down from here on out and I like that feeling," rookie Lachlan Edwards said, who is currently the only punter on the roster. "And it's good because I'm getting all the reps now. Even with Tanner [Purdum], he's snapping to the same guy every time. With holding, all the kickers are going to get the same hold, so I think it's good for everyone that I'm getting more reps."
