Todd Bowles rebuilds Jets’ staff with emphasis on hiring teachers by Rich Cimini (ESPN)
Stump Mitchell, 57, was a terrific hire. He played the position and has coached it for 15 years, including the last four with the Cardinals. He and Bowles spent two seasons together in Arizona, so it should be a seamless transition.

Secondary Was Led by Unfamiliar Faces in ‘16 by Ethan Greenberg (New York Jets)
The Jets were victimized by the big play in Weeks 1-6, allowing five completions on attempts of 40 or more yards for 339 yards and 4 TDs, all league lows. But then over their next five games, the Jets defense allowed a single completion of 53 yards, no TDs and 1 INT on attempts of 40 or more yards.
