There will be plenty of familiar faces on the Jets defense this season, but the scheme and playbook are likely to look much different than in recent years.
The arrival of Gregg Williams as Adam Gase’s defensive coordinator brings an aggressive, attacking-style defense that should take full advantage of the star power already on the roster. Big names like safety Jamal Adams, linebacker C.J. Mosley and defensive lineman Leonard Williams should make Williams’ transition to his new team as easy as possible.
Williams is excited about working with talented young players like Adams, a vocal leader who appreciates his new coach’s no-nonsense approach (via team senior reporter Eric Allen):
He’s motivated by some of the guys I’ve coached before.
