Jets defensive coordinator finally getting to coach his son

This is the first time Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers has gotten the opportunity to coach his son.

“I wasn’t able to coach his little league team, I didn’t coach his soccer team, I didn’t coach his AAU team, I didn’t coach his little league basketball team,” Rodgers told the media on Day 2 of the Jets’ minicamp. “The first time I get to coach my son is in the National Football League.”

“That’s a little different.”

Kacy Rodgers II, who signed with the Jets in early February, said he sees his opportunity to fulfill his dream of playing in the NFL and hopes to take advantage of it, though his chances of making the final roster is slim.
