Rex thinks 2012 Jets will be closer Craig Thomas

Rex Ryan has a good feeling about his 2012 locker room.

“When we say this is going to be a close football team, I think these are strides that you make [with] guys working out in the off-season together,” Ryan said. “When you get up to Cortland, these are all things that I think will bring this team closer. Now will it give us more wins on the field? We will find out when the season kicks off. I feel good about this right now.”\

Remember, in 2011, with the lockout, there were no off-season workout programs.
