All the Jets news that's fit to print

A few notes on the Jets from today:

1. Team owner Woody Johnson doesn’t sound all that concerned about the logistics of signing the final three of the Core Four. This, according to the NY Daily News .

From Manish Mehta’s article:

The Jets still haven't worked out new deals for Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold and David Harris, but the man in charge insists the fan base shouldn't worry.

"I think the fans know that we have to run the team ... and we have to run it within the rules," Johnson told the Daily News Monday. "The fans know that we are trying to win. We are using our best judgment – (GM) Mike Tannenbaum, all of the coaches and me as well."


The Jets inked LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson to an extension last week, but the uncertainty of next year’s potential lockout has made it more difficult to sign Revis, Mangold and Harris.

2. The Jets have announced they’ll establish a Ring of Honor for the New Meadowlands Stadium that will open this season. The first class of inductees: Weeb Ewbank, Winston Hill, Joe Klecko, Curtis Martin, Don Maynard and Joe Namath. The ceremony will occur during halftime of the Aug. 16 preseason game against the Giants.

“This organization has always had a deep appreciation for and admiration of those who have worn this team’s uniform,” Johnson said in a statement. “These six men span generations of Jets football, all embodying the best of this game and what it means to truly be a Jet. With this new stadium, we now have a proper way to salute those who have helped make this franchise what it is today.”

3. More from Mehta and the Daily News . According to a team official, the Jets have sold 75 percent of their 9,000 unsold personal seat licenses and they remain confident they’ll move the remaining PSLs in time to avoid any potential local TV blackout.

Already, the team has cut the prices of the PSLs by up to 50 percent, but the Jets also said they would not further reduce the prices.
