Wildcat Fever Spreads to Jets Camp


Jets rookie head coach Rex Ryan won’t be kissing any of Bill Belichick’s rings anytime soon, but he is putting good use to one of Belichick’s favorite football words: versatility.

Running back Leon Washington has been taking most of the direct snaps with the first-team offense, while former Missouri quarterback-turned-Jets wide receiver Brad Smith has been working with the twos.
