Early in his introductory press conference, Rex Ryan was asked about how he’ll fix last year’s first-round pick Vernon Gholston.
It’s very early, but this is troubling news for the Jets. Football in shorts should be where the athletically gifted Gholston shines.
Instead, the No. 6 overall pick of last year’s draft may be showing the new coaching staff what the old staff reportedly saw in him: “next to nothing.“
We’ll know soon enough how much Gholston has developed. Verbal backslaps are nice, but coaches tend to speak loudest with playing time.
