FOXBOROUGH -- Tuesday is usually an off day, but with the Patriots and Jets playing on Thursday night, both clubs are working today. Jets coach Eric Mangini held a conference call with members of the New England media this morning (10:35 a.m.) and he was asked about his team signing Ty Law.
"With my experience with Ty, spending five years with him, coaching him every day, the one thing that I like about making this move is the versatility he gives us," Mangini said. "He's played inside at the 'star' position some, he's played outside both left and right, he's worked a little bit at safety. He's got a lot of experience obviously playing but he also has a lot of experience playing in this system. I think what he does for us is add some versatility as to where we can place some of the other players. He gives us some good depth there as well."
Mangini was asked if it is realistic that Law will play Thursday night, as Law told Adam Schefter of NFL Network.
"I think we'll have to see how it goes, but I'd say there is definitely a shot," he said.
