Jets nose tackle Kris Jenkins, who supposedly was coaxed out of retirement by coach Rex Ryan, appeared earlier tonight on NFL Network.
Though most of the discussion about the 2010 Jets has focused on the high-profile arrivals, the Jets have experienced more than a few departures, including guard Alan Faneca, safety Kerry Rhodes, and running back Thomas Jones.
Jenkins addressed the issue of filling the various voids.
“We have great guys who have come in to step up and fill in a void of
some of the big losses that we have had this [offseason],” Jenkins said. “In some other cases, we’ve had some real men step up in for the women
that we lost. So we’re going to be OK. Don’t worry about it.”
Ouch. And Jenkins said “women.” As in plural. ‘
Too bad the Jets don’t play the Cardinals this year. Two of the potential “women” — Faneca and Rhodes — ended up there.
