    Defensive Notes - Offseason moves

    Despite some gaudy statistics in 2011, the defense was not as dominant as it had been the previous two seasons. Highlighting this was the 95 yard drive led by Tim Tebow to end the week 11 matchup against the Broncos or the 99 yard Touchdown given up to the Victor Cruz and the Giants. Many times during the season you would likely see Eric Smith desperately chasing an opposing Tight End or receiver down the field.

    Jets Add Safety Depth - Sign Yeremiah Bell

    The New York Jets added another veteran safety to their roster, as they agreed to a 1-year contract with S Yeremiah Bell, who played his entire 8-year career for the Miami Dolphins. Bell's deal is reportedly worth $1.4M, which includes a $1.1M base salary, which is guaranteed, plus a $200,000 signing bonus and a $100,000 workout bonus. This move could spell the end to S Jim Leonhard's tenure with the Gang Green. Bell is expected to back up another free agent acquisition, S LaRon Landry, at the strong safety position, while S Eric Smith is expected to start at free safety. Although, as we all know, Smith is prone to getting exposed in pass coverage and the Jets could use an upgrade there as well.
