East Rumors: Jets, Wilkerson, Austin, Pats

Former Jets cornerback (and scout) Aaron Glenn is heading to the Browns to serve as their assistant defensive backs coach, according to Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. In 2013, Glenn became a college scout for the Jets and was the area scout for second-round selection tight end Jace Amaro.

  • Muhammad Wilkerson still wants a new deal but he’s in no rush for it, writes Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com. “I would like a deal, but when it happens, it happens,” the Jets‘ defensive lineman said. “I’m not saying I want it to be before the regular season. When it happens, it happens. I’m going to come in and work hard and take every day like I always do.”
  • Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says that wide receiver Miles Austin is “absolutely” a possibility to come back to the team, writes Rowan Kavner of DallasCowboys.com. However, the fifth-round selection of Devin Street may make the Cowboys comfortable with what they’ve got. Dallas designated Austin as a post-June 1 cut to free up $5.5MM on the salary cap in 2014. Austin was a 1,000-yard receiver twice, catching 81 passes for 1,320 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2009 and 69 passes for 1,041 yards and seven touchdowns 2010, but he has been marred by hamstring issues ever since.
  • Jimmy Garoppolo may eventually have the difficult task of replacing Tom Brady in New England, but he says he hasn’t given that much thought, writes Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union. Belichick, meanwhile, has thought about it a great deal and says that the pick made sense given Brady’s age and Ryan Mallett‘s impending free agency.
