Defense dominates high-spirited practice

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets’ next-to-last practice of the offseason was feisty. A fight nearly broke out between rookie defensive end Nathan Shepherd and guard Brian Winters, with safety Jamal Adams yelling at both to get it on.

Wednesday’s practice was dominated by the defense, which made two interceptions, dropped two more and had numerous sacks. The offense had its moments, but the defense had the better day.

The usually soft-spoken defensive end Leonard Williams was yelling about his group. Todd Bowles was yelling, too, but he used an expletive to describe his displeasure at Williams for touching Teddy Bridgewater.
