Some Happenings in New York

A few notes from the New York Football scene....

The Giants are practicing in their new $1.7 billion stadium for the first time today. The practice is open to the public.

Jets NT Kris Jenkins returned to the practice field for the first time since his October ACL surgery. Rex Ryan said the Jets are breaking him in slowly. Jenkins says he’s on the right track for training camp.

In other news, Ryan also told the NY Post that his “gut feeling” is Revis will “be a Jet for a long time”. Given Ryan's gut, you have to imagine that feeling is pretty intense….

ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio is covering the Jets minicamp and made a great point on Mike and Mike this morning. Paolantonio essentially said that Revis owes Rex Ryan an apology for embarrassing the coach with staged sitouts during yesterday’s practice. Ryan has been a major supporter of Revis yet wound up taking the brunt of the cornerback’s questionable negotiating ploy. Revis must remember that he’s butting heads with Mike Tannenbaum and the front office more than he’s butting heads with his coach.

UPDATE: Ralph Vacciano of the NY Daily News tweeted that Osi Umenyiora is working with the second unit. Justin Tuck and Mathias Kiwanuka are the starting defensive ends.

Revis sits out a few

Jets CB Darrelle Revis, hungering for a contract extension, participated in mini-camp today. Sort of.

He sat out a few plays at the end of practice Monday, and though he told the NY Daily News’ Manish Mehta that he was “a little light headed,” Revis basically winked when he used that excuse. He said he was insulted by the Jets offer and that, as of now, the contract talks “(don’t) look good.”

The big issue is what the Raiders pay their star cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, giving him a $45 million, three-year contract last season. He’s supposed to make about $16 million in 2010, or 16 times what Revis will be paid this season. Revis, meanwhile, believes he should be the highest-paid CB in the NFL. I’d expect the Jets to give him more money, but I’m not sure they’ll give him that much money.

Busy week for the Jets

If you're following any team during its mini-camp sessions, the New York Jets might be the most compelling, especially with HBO's Hard Knocks cameras trailing everybody and everything.

There are four players who are in want of contract extensions - they are known as the Core Four - and if CB Darrelle Revis, C Nick Mangold, LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson and LB David Harris - don't get what they want, who knows how this season will go for the Jets. If all four are happy and playing, New York is going to be one of the best teams in the AFC and a potential Super Bowl contender. If not, well ...

Revis showed up today for the beginning of mini-camp, and though Mangold said last week it was a 50-50 proposition on whether he'd be there, he's in attendance as well.

So what will happen with the Core Four? According to ESPN NewYork's Rich Cimini , it doesn't look good for anybody not named Revis. From Cimini's story on Sunday:

Take this to the bank (no pun intended): C Nick Mangold, LB David Harris and LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson will not get contract extensions in 2010. The Jets have yet to begin negotiations with any of the players and, considering the uncertainty of the CBA, the organization is showing no sense of urgency. The Jets probably won’t admit this publicly, but I think they’ve already made a decision to wait.

By waiting until after the season, GM Mike Tannenbaum is putting himself in an almost impossible position, with Mangold, Harris, WR Braylon Edwards, WR Santonio Holmes and CB Antonio Cromartie all unsigned. Say goodbye to two or three of those players.


Plus, you've got the Jets struggling to sell seat licenses, and the unknown of how well QB Mark Sanchez's knee will perform. Intrigued? Yeah, you should be.

Bart Hubbach of the NY Post breaks it down for us.
