Jets to Unveil “Wildcat” Offense Against Bills

Rex Ryan says Monday that the New York Jets will “no doubt” use the tricky formation in some form in the regular-season opener against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The Jets did not use the wildcat at all in the preseason, adding to the intrigue surrounding what Tebow’s role will be in the offense.

Tebow, the Jets’ backup quarterback, is expected to see anywhere from a handful of plays to maybe 20-25 in games while in the wildcat-style formation — depending on the opponent.

Ryan adds that Buffalo will be well-prepared to defend against the scheme because the Bills have Brad Smith and quarterbacks coach David Lee, who helped current Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano implement it in Miami in 2008.
