Former Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's comments to the Tampa media were taken out of context on Twitter. Here's the full quote about losing his job last season: "That's the harsh reality of the NFL. There's only so many jobs that are available. I can't complain about it. Last year I was the starter. If you play well as the starter, you continue to play. I didn't play well, so I lost the game of musical chairs. They pulled out my chair from under me."

Fantasy alert: New Jets OC John Morton says it'll be backfield-by-committee. He believes it's necessary in today's NFL. He said the plan will vary week to week, but it sounds like there will be a time-share with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell.

Jets OC John Morton, speaking to the media for the first time, declined to discuss his offensive philosophy. He said he wants a competitive offense and an offense that protects the ball.

The Jets' first practice is in the books. Takeaways: QBJosh McCown took the majority of the first-team reps, but look for a rotation as OTAs continue. WR Eric Decker, coming off hip and shoulder surgeries, was a full go and made several catches. They can't possibly be thinking of cutting him. S Calvin Pryor was a no-show. The rookie safeties, Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, got a chance to play in tandem as they rotated safeties.
