FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Todd Bowles said Wednesday that he doesn’t have the inside track when it comes to facing the Arizona Cardinals, but the opposing quarterback begs to differ.
“You’d have to give him the edge, I’d assume,” Carson Palmer said Wednesday in a conference call (Bowles served as the Cardinals’ defensive coordinator from 2013 to 2014).
“He knows some of our personnel for sure. There’s a lot of guys that were here, we haven’t changed offenses since he left, so he knows us very, very well. We play a similar style of defense currently, we kept his defense attack, because it’s such a great scheme.”
Monday will be Bowles’ first time facing the Cardinals since he left, and though he’s looking forward to seeing old faces, he doesn’t exactly expect a warm welcome.
“We’ll shake hands after the game,” he said. “During the game, we’ll try to kill them and they’ll try to kill us.”
Marshall: It’s our time. Brandon Marshall revealed a new T-shirt Wednesday that reads “Due Season” and appears to have been distributed to the entire locker room. Marshall also changed the name on his Twitter profile to the the phrase. “Due season” is taken from a Bible verse, which he paraphrased by way of explanation.
“You can never grow weary of doing the right things because in time you will reap a harvest,” he said. “I’ve been in the league 10 years and I’ve never made the playoffs, haven’t really had the success I wanted to have, and it’s due season, it’s due. I believe when you put in the work, you’ll reap the harvest.”
Jets sign cornerback Marshall
The Jets signed former Auburn quarterback-turned-NFL cornerback Nick Marshall to the active roster. The second-year corner played in 13 games as a rookie with Jacksonville, making one start, and had nine tackles and one pass defensed. He also averaged 26.6 yards per return as the Jaguars’ kickoff returner.
CB Darrelle Revis (hamstring), C Nick Mangold (knee), MLB David Harris (hamstring) all didn’t practice Wednesday. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins also didn’t practice with what Bowles called a sore ankle.
