Defense: LB Jonathan Vilma and DE Shaun Ellis

Special Teams: K Mike Nugent and LB Brad Kassell

Via Randy Lange of the NY Jets website, Mangini had this to say about the captains, selected by their peers:

“I’m very happy for them,” Mangini said. “I’m always happy to see those guys take over that position. I think it’s a really good group and I’m excited about that.”

One week from today the Jets will have a game under their belt, hopefully a victory. The countdown is on……..
