In more of the Jets' soap opera playing out, quarterback Eric Ainge has gone into rehab, which means he will miss training camp. Ryan did not elaborate on this matter, but team sources say that Ainge has "an undisclosed illness." If he is indeed in rehab, it would indicate that Ainge has had a relapse and the likelihood of his taking a snap any time this year is in doubt.
That turns the soap opera to its final scene of the day. QB Kellen Clemens, with Ainge out of the picture, will now be back in the hunt for the last quarterback spot. The acquisition of Mark Brunell – obviously the number two quarterback after Mark Sanchez – means it will now be a competition between Kevin O'Connell and Clemens for the number three spot. In the world of the Jets' soap opera, the music starts to play as the two square off. And Ryan watches them, vegetarian shake in hand. Hey, no one said dieting is easy.
