Ex-Jet Schilens takes shot at Jets, Sanchez

CORTLAND, N.Y. -- Chaz Schilens apparently didn't make too many fond memories during his one season with the Jets. The veteran wide receiver, who signed with the Lions as a free agent, took a couple of shots at the Jets as he prepares to face them Friday night in the preseason opener.

"For me there?" Schilens told the Detroit Free-Press. "Really, when it came down to it, I kind of felt like they were looking for scapegoats and besides everyone except for, you know, maybe the quarterback position, and it was what it was. When free agency didn't start off right away, I just kind of understood what it was and part of the business."

Schilens, a role player last season for the Jets, was asked about QB Mark Sanchez and whether he can win back the fans.

"Nothing good to say," Schilens said, "so I'm not going to say nothing."

He said plenty.
