The Jets’ rookie minicamp begins Friday with a morning practice and then we invite you to join us for a special live video broadcast at 1 p.m. ET. You will be able to view exclusive footage of the first session and also hear and interact with some of the new Jets as we’ll take questions on facebook.com/Jets, Twitter @nyjets and right here on newyorkjets.com.
You can also watch head coach Rex Ryan’s Friday and Saturday news conferences scheduled to be streamed live on newyorkjets.com at 3 p.m. both days.
In addition to their eight draft selections, the Jets’ have agreed in principle with 10 undrafted free agents and have scheduled 23 players for tryouts. Friday will mark the first professional workout for dozens of talented players.
“We got some really good players who we think can contribute to us winning some football games,” said VP of scouting Joey Clinkscales.
Four months remain before the season commences for New York’s AFC representative with a visit from the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium on Sept. 9. But players will put their cleats on, button up their chinstraps and hit the field this weekend. While the youngsters will arrive shortly, the veterans have already begun training under strength coach Bill Hughan at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center, and a soft May rain didn’t force them inside this morning.
Spring is here, but fall is around the corner. It’s time for a little football so stay tuned to newyorkjets.com throughout the weekend for complete coverage of rookie camp.
