Wednesday's NFL: Confident Jets aim to go from worst to first on defense

Associated Press

Florham Park, N.J. — Sheldon Rankins is not one to sugarcoat things or mince words. Like, ever.

So when the New York Jets defensive lineman was asked what he expects from the defense, he was straight-up honest.

“I think the expectations, to a man, have to be (to) be the best defense in the league,” Rankins said after practice Wednesday. “If we look at anything else or if we put any other goal out there, we’re selling ourselves short.”

Sounds great, of course.
