The Jets claimed former Saints RB Marcus Murphy on waivers. Like Lucky Whitehead, whom they picked up Wednesday, Murphy returns punts and kickoffs. There will be a bunch of these moves in the coming weeks, as the Jets churn the bottom of the roster. To make room for Murphy, they waived RB Brandon Wilds.

Ranking weapons: Jets land dead last

New York's backfield isn't that bad, but its group of pass-catchers is dreadfully low on both talent and experience.

To make room for ex-Cowboys WR/KR Lucky Whitehead, the Jets have waived WR Devin Street.

Claiming Lucky Whitehead on waivers was a sound, no-risk move for the Jets. Where's the downside? He's young (25), cheap ($615,000) and fast, which means he fits the profile of the "new" Jets. Oh, yes, he also fills two needs -- punt and kickoff returner. The recent publicity from his ouster with the Cowboys will blow over in a couple of days. Maybe he'll make the team, maybe he won't. It's worth a shot.

Lucky Whitehead was claimed off waivers by the Jets after the Cowboys had parted ways with him following news of his involvement in a shoplifting arrest that turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.

In four days, Jets teammates Matt Forte and Demario Davis will face each other in training-camp drills -- running back vs. linebacker. Today, they squared off on the tennis court -- a charity event at the site of the upcoming U.S. Open. Here, Davis serves to Forte, who smacks a forehand winner. The tennis wasn't sharp, but it was all in fun ... and for a good cause.

Jets RB Matt Forte, speaking to reporters at a charity event at the Billie Jean King USTA National Tennis Center, scoffed at the dire predictions for the team. "Everybody is saying tanking and all that stuff. A lot of people are jumping ship before the season even starts, but I welcome that," he said. "All y'all can jump ship if you want to. It shows you were never on board in the first place." Forte beat teammate Demario Davis, 6-love, in a tennis match for charity.

Jets owner Woody Johnson moved one step closer to becoming the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, as his confirmation hearing occurred yesterday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. There was a lighthearted moment when Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a lifelong Dolphins fan, said "support for your nomination due to you relationship with the New York Jets is painful and difficult, but I'm willing to do it for the good of the country." Continuing his AFC East theme, Rubio told Johnson, "I think you and I agree the country would be well-served if a certain Thomas Brady were nominated ambassador to Brazil. Perhaps that could be arranged before September of this year." Brady is married to the Brazilian-born Gisele Bundchen.
