Jets Lose LB Jermaine Cunningham To Torn Achilles

The Jets had hoped Cunningham would give them some pass rush help.

Dee Milliner Looking For Bigger And Better In Year Two With Jets

Dee Milliner

Despite a rocky rookie season, Jets cornerback Dee Milliner is upbeat about how he finished the year, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

“It’s always going to be tougher than you expected,” Miller acknowledged at his football camp in Alabama. “All the places, even in high school, it was tougher than I expected because you expected to just go out and play. It takes hard work, getting up early in the morning or staying up late at night to do the extra things while everybody else is in the house.

“My first year in the NFL. Yeah, I never thought it would go like it went. But it was great, it just started off rough. I expected to have a better year but I finished the way that I wanted to play the whole year so I felt great about that. Coming into this year, that’s what I’m trying to do. The way I finished, I want it to be like that the whole year, be consistent in my play.”

Drafted ninth overall, Milliner was limited by shoulder, calf and hamstring injuries. He was also benched three times by coach Rex Ryan.

“I look at it sometimes, most of the time I don’t,” he said. “People around me will tell me what they’re saying in the media or what fans are saying, but I don’t take it as a bad thing. I just keep trying to work and do what I can do and control my part. But I know it can be rough because fans are fans – they want to see you play great, they want to see touchdowns, they want to see great plays. But I still love the fans. They’re what make the game fun. We’ve got fans that are crazy about the game.”

Mike Goodson – Beyond Dumb On and Off the Field

Mike Goodson

Former Jets running back Mike Goodson did not show up for a court appearance at the Morris County Superior Court on Thursday on charges related to drug and weapons possession, Jane McManus of ESPN New York reports.

Goodson, who was released by the Jets last week with the designation “left squad,” could be arrested if he fails to appear in court for a July 24 hearing before Judge Mary G. Whipple.

Goodson’s attorney was in court Thursday morning, as was Goodson’s co-defendant, Garant Evans.

According to the Newark Star-Ledger, Goodson’s acting attorney, Alfred Gellene, said that Goodson was unable to secure a flight from Texas, where he has been since the end of the Jets’ season. The reason for the difficulty was “financial issues” Gellene said, according to the report.

Anthony Fusco, Goodson’s attorney of record, had no further comment.

Goodson was arrested in May 2013 after being found unresponsive in a vehicle found stopped in the left lane of Route 80. Police found an unregistered gun with a hollow-point bullet in the car, and in November both Goodson and Evans were indicted on possession charges.

New Jersey has some of the strictest weapons laws in the country, and Goodson faces up to 10 years in prison if found guilty.

Former Jets DC Mike Pettine Thinks Bill Belichick Has Jets Playbook

Bill Belichick once got busted for illegally spying on the Jets. Now there’s a story that says the New England Patriots coach may have obtained a copy of the Jets’ playbook from Alabama coach Nick Saban, a close friend — and an acquaintance of Rex Ryan, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.

The latest chapter of skullduggery between the two rivals was hatched by Browns coach Mike Pettine, the Jets defensive coordinator from 2009 to 2012. In an interview with Sports Illustrated’s, Pettine suggests that Belichick might have obtained the Jets’ playbook through Saban.

At Wes Welker’s wedding, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady bragged to Mike Smith, another former Jets assistant, that they may have a copy of the Jets’ playbook, according to Pettine. Smith and Welker were college roommates at Texas Tech; Smith is now a member of Pettine’s staff.

“It didn’t shock me because Rex would give them out like candy anyway,” Pettine told the website. “He gave one out to Saban, and I was like, ‘Don’t you know Saban and Bill are pretty good friends? I have a feeling it’s going to end up in New England.’”
