Jets return to Hofstra, still without Revis
Question of the Day
Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden was an invited guest of the Jets, and spent a portion of the practice talking with Ryan and the players. Bowden, who told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he was “pushed out” at Florida State, was in New York to begin a promotional tour for his new book, “Called to Coach.”
“We knew he was in town and he was asking about coming to practice and we were like, ‘Absolutely. We’d love to have a legend like Coach Bowden here,’” Ryan said. “It was great to have him around our players.”
One unexpected visitor never got close to any of the players. A man who appeared to be in his 40s ran onto the field midway through practice and was quickly tackled by two security guards. The man was then led off the field in handcuffs as fans heckled him.
Ryan called the tackle “impressive” and jokingly said he was ready to get rookie fullback John Conner in on the action.
“If it was going to go any longer, we were going to put “The Terminator” on the guy,” Ryan said with a laugh.
Notes: The team began practice 40 minutes earlier than the scheduled 6 p.m. start time. Ryan said they arrived earlier than anticipated and wanted to get in the session before inclement weather moved in. … Former Jets wide receiver Wayne Chrebet and Super Bowl-winning center John Schmitt, both Hofstra alums, were in attendance. Gary Dell’Abate, also known as “Baba Booey” on The Howard Stern Show, was also at Hofstra and chatted with his buddy, Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.
