Thurman admits secondary took a step back last year Dan Leberfeld

In an exclusive interview with Eric Allen on Jets defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman admitted the team’s secondary took a step back last year.

“We didn’t play as well in the secondary as we had in prior years, but we had some new guys come in back there,” Thurman told Allen. “We brought in Dee, we brought in Dawan Landry , Cro was coming off of a hip injury. We had to get that group back up to speed. Communication wasn’t as sharp early on as it was later in the year, when you began to see the improvement as the guys played more together. So we’re anticipating that we’ll pick that up and well keep it moving forward.”
