Jets signed RB Michael Smith, formerly of the Bucs.

Smith is an undersized burner out of Utah State. The Buccaneers cut him in May. Smith will likely be a practice body until the Jets make final cuts.

Geno Smith has looked "steady, for the most part" through roughly one week of Jets training camp.

Handling 79 percent of the first-team reps thus far, Smith has drawn praise from OC Marty Mornhinweg for improved ball security -- read: decision making -- and should feel far more comfortable in his second season of the same offense. If Smith takes a sophomore step forward, even if it isn't a huge leap, Eric Decker could prove quite the value pick at his current middle-eighth-round ADP.

Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg has been impressed with Geno Smith's ball security thus far in camp.

"He got that thing fixed," Mornhinweg said Thursday. "We'll see if it stays fixed." Turnovers were Smith's biggest issue as a rookie, as he tossed 21 picks while losing four fumbles. At the bare minimum, he needs to cut that number by 33 percent as a sophomore.

Rookie TE Jace Amaro suggested going from Texas Tech's offense to the Jets is like going from Chinese to English.

Amaro is reportedly struggling so badly that he's begun frustrating teammates, including Geno Smith. After another drop in Wednesday's practice, one teammate yelled "Can't catch a cold" at Amaro, who was later taken aside by GM John Idzik. Amaro should be left off the re-draft radar in fantasy leagues.

Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg insists Michael Vick is "all in" as Geno Smith's backup.

Vick has failed to impress in camp, leading some to postulate that his heart isn't in it. Vick was a willing mentor for Nick Foles in 2013, however, so there's little reason to assume he won't serve the same role in the Big Apple.

Jets first-round SS Calvin Pryor (concussion) has been cleared for physical activity.

He's not yet cleared for contact, but is trending in the right direction. Pryor is a rookie to monitor in IDP leagues. He'll play an attacking role under coach Rex Ryan as a tone setter operating close to the line of scrimmage.

Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg says Stephen Hill has looked "outstanding" in training camp.

"Wow, he's taken a huge jump," Mornhinweg added. Lighting up practice is par for the course for the 2012 second-rounder. It's staying healthy and translating that ability to games that has thus far eluded him. Either way, we'd rather hear positive Hill updates than negative ones. Despite Hill's theoretical upside, it's hard to see him making a reliable re-draft impact.

Former Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff ripped CB Dee Milliner Wednesday.

Milliner grabbed some headlines on Saturday by declaring himself the best corner in the game. "I'm not sure he's the best cornerback up here in Cortland," Westhoff said. "And I might include the University." With Milliner and Dimitri Patterson (a slot corner) penned in as starters along with some questions at safety, the Jets' secondary projects to be leaky again.

Jets rookie TE Jace Amaro continues to struggle with mental mistakes and drops in camp.

Amaro's main struggles are with X's and O's. He played in a very simple, no-huddle attack at Texas Tech, and has found the transition to the Jets' more sophisticated offense a difficult one. Amaro has time to turn it around, but he appears unlikely to be a fantasy contributor in year one.
Jul 30 - 7:55 PM

Second-year TE Zach Sudfeld has been getting some first-team reps in Jets camp.

Sudfeld was overly hyped last summer. But he's a plus athlete at 6'7/253. "He's studying like nobody's business," said coach Rex Ryan. Sudfeld has a relatively clear path to playing time if he takes the next step in his development. Jeff Cumberland is a lumbering backup-caliber tight end, while rookie Jace Amaro's first-year camp reviews have been anything but positive. Sudfeld deserves attention in deep Dynasty leagues and could emerge on the re-draft map.

Chris Johnson underwent stem-cell treatment surgery on his left knee in the offseason.

Until now, Johnson's surgery had been classified as a mere scope. When Johnson tore his meniscus last Week 3, he says he lost a ton of cartilage. Injecting stem cells -- taken from bone marrow near Johnson's pelvis -- "might be able to help rebuild that cartilage." The hope is the stem cells help rebuild the tissue. Stem-cell treatment is becoming very common among pro athletes.

Jets WRs coach Sanjay Lal called Stephen Hill "healthy and confident" through the first week of camp.

"I think he’s believing, and believing in himself — and it’s starting to show," Lal said. "It’s been the injuries that have hindered (him). ... He’s taken the coaching the whole time. Now, he’s able to do it physically, so it’s just kind of coming together." It's notable, as Lal's comments come one month after he said he was "unsure" if Hill would ever break through because of his health. Hill remains a long-shot to make a fantasy impact this season, but the upside is there. He's someone to monitor.
Jul 29 - 7:57 PM

Jets RBs coach Anthony Lynn confirmed Chris Ivory is the favorite to be the Jets' goal-line back this season.

"If we were playing tomorrow, Chris Ivory would be on the goal line, obviously," Lynn said. "Sometimes in those situations you have an extra defender that you can’t block, and you need a back that can take him on." Ivory weighs over 220 pounds and will serve as the short-yardage vulture while Chris Johnson operates as the Jets' lead back between the twenties. Ivory may still struggle for weekly start-ability in fantasy leagues barring a CJ?K injury.
Jul 29 - 9:31 AM

Second-year TE Zach Sudfeld has reportedly been the most impressive tight end so far at Jets camp.

Jeff Cumberland has been "relatively quiet," while second-round pick Jace Amaro has generally struggled and missed time with knee tendinitis. Positive news on Sudfeld may generate eyerolls in the fantasy community, but he still offers plus athleticism and stands 6'7/253. He probably won't make any fantasy noise in New York this season, but is worth monitoring in deep Dynasty leagues.
Jul 27 - 9:48 PM

First-round SS Calvin Pryor is sidelined at Jets camp with a concussion.

Pryor was not known to have suffered any concussions at Louisville, where he missed only one career game. He did give other players concussions, frequently knocking opponents out of games. If Pryor progresses smoothly and gets medical clearance, he may only miss a handful of practices.
