FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman is just the latest person to jump on the Jets’ bandwagon. Rodman not only showed love for Todd Bowles’ team during his Wednesday visit to the facility, but he also took a shot at the Giants.
“What am I doing here? I’m supporting your team,” he said in a video posted to the Jets official Instagram account as he flashed his lime-green nail polish. “Guess what? I’ve got the green on, baby. The green nails. Supporting the Jets right now.”
“Guess what? It’s time for this team to do one thing, baby. It’s time to take over New York. No more Giants. It’s about the New York Jets, Jets, Jets, Jets.”
Former Chargers and Jets running back-turned TV analyst LaDainian Tomlinson also was at practice, along with former Mets manager Willie Randolph.
A day after making his camp debut in 11-on-11 drills, cornerback Darrelle Revis (wrist) participated only in positional drills. But Bowles insisted Revis didn’t suffer a setback, saying, “We just didn’t want to overdo it.”
Running back Matt Forte also was held out of team drills, but that, too, was part of the Jets’ plan. “It’s just part of the treatment,” Bowles said.
Cornerback Dexter McDougle (hamstring) didn’t practice for a third straight day, while running back Bernard Pierce (hamstring) and tight end Zach Sudfeld missed a second straight practice.
On Monday, first-round pick Darron Lee said he had been warned by the veterans that, “You’re not going to win every rep. This league will humble you.”
Two days later, he learned that lesson the hard way. During goal-line drills, 5-9, 205-pound running back Dominique Williams bowled over Lee (6-1, 232) for an easy touchdown. Offensive players erupted in cheers on the sideline as receiver Brandon Marshall playfully shouted in Lee’s direction: “Welcome to the NFL!”
The Jets signed RB Terry Williams, an undrafted free agent, and waived DB Kendall James.
