He had one of the better run defense plays today at the Tampa Bay-Jets practice.
On a run by Tampa Bay’s Rachaad White up the middle, the running back was stopped on the line by defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson for no gain.
Jefferson, a well-traveled DT, including three different stints in Seattle, his last stop before joining the Jets this off-season, has flashed as a run defender this summer.
The 6-4, 291 University of Maryland product, is a powerful, stout run defender, much like fellow former Seahawk defensive tackle Al Woods, who also joined the Jets this off-season.
Jefferson and Woods should help the Jets play better against the run than they did during their six-game losing streak to end last season.
