John Idzik at the 2013 Scouting Combine Dan Leberfeld

During his press conference at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine, Jets GM John Idzik had this to say . . .

“I don’t think you isolate it to any one or a few positions. We’re going to have a general mantra here with the New York Jets and it’s going to be ‘Competition Through and Through.’ That’s going to be true this year in 2013 as we enter free agency, it’s going to be true as we go into the draft, it’s going to be true as we come out of the draft, it’s going to be true as we go into training camp and into our regular season. And if we have success and we win a championship, it’ll be true after we win a championship. I think it’s going to be something constant.

“Even if you think there’s an incumbent, we don’t want complacency. We want the type of players that even if they’re arrived in this league and are performing at a high level, it’s inherent to them to thrive on competition, and we’re going to try to provide that to them.”
