If there were an MVP for Jets Scrimmage it would be . . . Dan Leberfeld

Piscataway – Every time you turned around, this guy was making a play in the Jets’ scrimmage at Rutgers on Saturday night.

I’m talking about Chris Herndon.

I don’t do stats in training camp, because it’s not real tackle football, and you can’t touch the quarterbacks, but the Jets’ rookie tight end was a catching machine at High Point Solutions Stadium.

He, by far, had the most catches of any player, no matter who was at quarterback.

Herndon is clearly better than the fourth-round where he was selected.

One reason he slipped was due to a knee injury at the end of his senior season at Miami (FL).

He never ran a 40 before the draft due to the injury, but he clearly has good wheels, and has the velcro hands.

Herndon was the star of the Jets’ scrimmage at Rutgers.
