Jets bring former players and Steelers star to camp

Former Jets OT D’Brickashaw Ferguson and LB Calvin Pace are back with the Jets. The team announced that both former teammates will be serving as Nunn-Wooten scouting fellows during training camp. The Scouting Fellowship, created by the league 2015, exposes interested former players to a career in professional scouting. The program gives participants a unique glimpse into player personnel by introducing them to various areas related to college and pro scouting.

Ferguson, 3-time Pro Bowler, retired after the 2015 season. He spent 10 seasons with the Gang Green, never missing a game. Pace, who was signed by the Jets in 20808 as a free agent, played 8 seasons for the green and white and also retired in 2015.

Former Steelers wide receiver, Hines Ward, MVP of Super Bowl XL, will be one of four Bill Walsh coaching interns. Ward previously interned with the Steelers and worked for the now defunct Alliance of American Football.

Ward's experience should definitely help the young wideouts on the roster, as the team is looking for a breakout season from second year QB Sam Darnold. The Jets are now ranked in the middle of the pack to win it all in the upcoming season, as bookies currently have them at +2550 to end the 50 year Super Bowl drought. Betnow.eu allows placing wagers on various sports, including betting on the Super Bowl and NFL games throughout the season.

David Clowney, a former star of Jets preseason games, who now coaches wide receivers at Howard University, will join Ward, Missouri State assistant wide receivers coach Stephen Bravo-Brown and Bowie State head coach Damon Reginald Wilson as interns with the Gang Green this summer.
