CORTLAND, N.Y. -- Finally, football.
The Jets practice Friday for the first time, from 10 a.m. to noon at SUNY-Cortland -- open to the public. They will practice in shells for the first two days, easing in before going to full pads on Sunday.
1. Quarterbacks: The Mark Sanchez-Geno Smith competition will be the headline act in Ryan's fifth camp. The coaches expect Smith, lackluster in spring drills, to make a huge leap in training camp. It'll be interesting to see how they split the reps. Chances are, they will alternate practices with the first team.
2. No-shows: As of Thursday night, first-round pick Dee Milliner was unsigned. They figure to be light at running back, with Mike Goodson (did not report) and Joe McKnight (non-football injury list) still not on the active roster.
3. Brownie points: Many eyes will be on former Browns teammates Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow. In 2007, they were a lethal tandem. That was a long time ago, but the Jets -- thin on offense -- are counting on them.
