New York Jets Notes, Quotes 2009-03-30
--RB Thomas Jones has been a no-show for the first week-plus of the Jets' off-season conditioning program. Sources indicate the veteran is unhappy with the $900,000 he's scheduled to make this season.


However, he's in the midst of a four-year, $20 million deal that paid him $13.1 million over the last two seasons, including a $10 million signing bonus and other guarantees.

The Jets don't want to give Jones another payday because it would set a bad precedent for other players on the team who are in the middle of multi-year contracts.

--LB Bart Scott, who played for head coach Rex Ryan when the latter was Baltimore's defensive coordinator, says that Ryan doesn't believe in a lot of arcane rules.

"If you want me five minutes early (for a meeting), then tell me to come" at that time, Scott said. "If you want me there at 6:55, then set the meeting for 6:55 and I'll show. Just tell me what you want. (Ryan's) not going to rule you to death (and) just put in a rule to put in a rule (like) 'pull your socks up when you walk around the building.' How does that hurt me or help the team? All that says is you have power and you're expressing it.

"Let's not stress each other out with stuff that has nothing to do with winning," Scott added. "If it has something to do with winning, then I'm all for it and I'm sure Rex is all for it. Anything that makes us a better team that will help us to get a victory, we'll do it."

--The Jets signed unrestricted free agent CB Donald Strickland, giving them the nickel back they had been seeking since the beginning of free agency.

Strickland, a six-year veteran who played for San Francisco for the last three seasons, is expected to back up projected starters Darrelle Revis and Lito Sheppard and play in nickel and dime packages.

He was a third-round pick of Indianapolis in 2003 and has appeared in 49 NFL games, with two interceptions. The Jets ranked 29th in the NFL against the pass in 2008.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "This is the ideal situation to break a young guy in because we have a lot of really good pieces in place." -- RT Damien Woody on the Jets' quarterback situation.
