“We don’t like Tom at all,” Pryor said of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during an interview with SportsNet New York’s Daily News Live last week. “When I first came here, that was one of the first things I heard about: We hate the Patriots andwe...

It didn’t take long for Calvin Pryor to be indoctrinated into the Jets-Pats rivalry. 

The rookie safety has been a New York Jet for only a month, but he’s already up to speed on how much the organization loathes New England -- and the team's star quarterback Tom Brady.

Dimitri Patterson may not have a flashy resume or a big name – but the slender cornerback certainly talks a big game. 

“I'll put my film (up against) anybody’s,” he said after Wednesday’s OTA session.

Listed at 6-0 (though he appears shorter in person), Patterson has taken quite a circuitous road to get to Florham Park. Before signing as a free-agent earlier this offseason, he spent...

Who's checking out the #CMTawards tomorrow night?!...

Dee Milliner knows first-hand just how fast the Jets’ new receiving corps is. 

The second-year cornerback was conspicuously absent from team drills during Wednesday’s OTA session because of a tight left hamstring. Later, head coach Rex Ryan explained that a few days ago, Milliner “was trying to run with one of our fast guys and made a great play, and then later he came back (with tightness).”

Calvin Pryor is used to delivering the hard hits. But the Jets’ first-round safety was dealt a big blow over the weekend thanks to his wisdom teeth. 

Pryor has had to sit out of team drills during OTAs because his face is swollen and in pain. On Wednesday he participated in individual drills without a helmet (due to the constant pressure on his jaw), but he spent most of his time standing...
