On Guard at Morning Practice

Posted by Randy Lange on June 14, 2007 – 1:25 pm

Veteran left guard Pete Kendall returned to work and even worked with the first offense at times, but at other times he was with the twos. He was kind of a 1½. He started the day with the second team behind Adrien Clarke, then would move in with the first offense for a while before being replaced by Clark.

See Eric Allen’s news story for today’s comments by head coach Eric Mangini, GM Mike Tannenbaum and Kendall on his status.

Kerry Rhodes was excused from the practice.

The D had some strong moments. Early on, Smith blitzed — remember, these are no-pads, no-contact practices — for a backfield "tackle" of Thomas Jones on a draw. Free agent Leonard Peters made a nice diving breakup of a low Brett Ratliff pass for Chansi Stuckey.

Coleman had a nice rush that forced Kellen Clemens into a hasty incompletion. In the battle of the twos, David Bowens at RDE beat Adrian Jones at LT to force another hurried pass.

In the two-minute drive to end practice, Rashad Washington made a nice breakup of a Chad Pennington pass for TE Chris Baker, swatting Baker’s hand and forcing the ball loose. But Pennington responded with a scramble and heave to Brad Smith, who double-snatched the ball away from Smith for the TD with 0:00 on the clock.

Mike Nugent finished by adding the tying PAT, then going 3-for-5 (hitting from 44 and 45, missing from 44 and 46) into a fair crosswind on field goals.

Jeff Weinstein of newyorkjets.com heard DE David Bowens commenting on the weather. With the breezes, overcast skies and temperatures in the low 60s, Bowens, who spent his previous six NFL seasons with the Dolphins, "It’s time to turn the heaters on, man. Where are the space heaters?"

During the practice, Brian Mulligan — Dr. Bri, I like to call him — cranked up some different sound, alternating the usual rap and rock numbers with Mozart and, for the first time, actual downloaded crowd noise and stadium sound effects. Get ready for that in five weeks or so at training camp.

    Tell Brian to play some Allman Brothers music. Too bad about Kendall but it is a business. They will be fine. E.Smith i feel will be used more in a rotation with Coleman this year. Randy, at the TE spot is Ryan being thrown to more or is he still being used as a blocking TE?

    So its bye-bye for Kendall, hopefully Clark can get the job done. Is it smart to deal him to Miami though?

    If Miami makes an offer and its the best one they should do it. Trade within the division is not a big deal. Teams all have films of each others games. I still would rather have a late pick then just cut him. Problem is teams all know the Jets will cut him and probably just wait for that.

    I know Kendall is wanting more money now but I thought we gave him an increase last year. If you broke down what he played for in 05 VS his 06 contract is the overall value more under the current contract? He missed two games last yr & played less than 100% in a bunch more. Why the demand?

  5. By Howard Tish on Jun 14, 2007 | Reply

    Where is character when a team can demand a pay cut of a player under contract and a player cannot ask for a justified increase? If Kendall makes his case, we will discover if character applies to management as well.

    The Jets restructured Pete’s contract that he agreed to and it was financially beneficial to Pete. Now he is wanting to leverage his way to some of the big 07 free agent money that some of the underachieving OL got this yr. I would hate to see Pete go but a deal is a deal.

    kendell,s under contract make him stick to his contract.
    but for insurance wait for a guard to be released or pick up the guard dallas released

    I like Adrien Clarke, he adds some beef to our offensive line. I hope he is able to fill Kendall’s spot, because it looks more and more like we will cut him. He had a good three years with us, but it’s time to move on.

    The one thing I do not get is Tangini knew at the end of the year Kendall was unhappy but did not draft a guard? They made the same mistake when they knew C-Mart was probably out and waited until R-4 to draft Washington last year…What gives Langer????

    discontent is cancer tro a franchise. pay Kendall what he thinks he’s worth or cut him. we’ve got a replacement in the wings
