New York Jets arrive in Cortland for training camp

Hundreds of fans flooded Main Street in Cortland Thursday afternoon to welcome the New York Jets to the 2013 training camp at SUNY Cortland.

A welcoming committee of Cortland Mayor Brian Tobin and SUNY Cortland President Erik Bitterbaum led the chants of J-E-T-S, as head coach Rex Ryan and a handful of players exited the bus to greet fans.

Coach Ryan reiterated why he loves bringing the Jets up to Cortland each summer.

“It really is great to come up here every single year,” Ryan said. “We think it gives us an edge over our opponents”

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie and rookie Quarterback Geno Smith promised fans a hard working training camp and a great season with lots to prove.

“As a rookie, I look forward to being here and helping out the organization,” Smith said. “I thank you guys for coming out to support us.”

The first practice begins 10 a.m. Friday at the football fields behind the SUNY Cortland Stadium Complex.
