Gronkowski has second straight limited practice: It may not sound like a big deal at first, but it is considering Gronk seems to be a tad ahead of schedule in his estimated return. I remember reading some articles which wondered whether Gronk’s entire 2013 season was in jeopardy. Now, it appears as if he’ll be back before the calendar turns to October. If you drafted him and stashed him on your bench while living with whatever fill-in you could find, chances are you’ll be rewarded for your patience. Holmes misses Thursday practice: Santonio Holmes took a scheduled day off from practice on Thursday, and the team said it’s because they’re trying to limit his reps. Scheduled or not, no one […]

Not the behavior of a captain, certainly. While Holmes may not regret last year — “Why should I?” — I bet his teammates do. And for one specific reason — Holmes ruined the Jets plans to have season captains. He ruined it for everyone else. I thought about this while reading about the latest antics of Holmes, who often makes you […]

The Jets spent last offseason watching from their couches or golf courses while the rival Patriots made a Super Bowl run. And everywhere you turned, the attention wasn’t just on Tom Brady or Bill Belichick. The spotlight was on tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, the dynamic duo that was such a major part of one of the NFL’s best offenses. In fact, I probably said the word “Gronkle” 800 times leading up to Super Bowl XLVI. The Jets haven’t done a ton in free agency… but what they have done appears to be with an eye toward stopping the TEs. I don’t know if it’ll work, but it seems that’s the idea. There was another example yesterday when […]
