Jets D-linemen plan to gather for workouts



NEW YORK (AP) — Jets defensive linemen plan to gather sometime next week for position drills while the NFL’s labor dispute drags on.

Defensive tackle Sione Pouha tells The Associated Press on Saturday that he and linemates Mike DeVito and Ropati Pitoitua will get together in New Jersey with others, possibly including first-round pick Muhammad Wilkerson and third-rounder Kenrick Ellis.

Pouha says while many players are working out individually, “doing actual drills, making blocking reads and punching sled bags, well, that’s another thing.”

Quarterback Mark Sanchez gathered several offensive players in Southern California earlier this month for his “Jets West” camp, and recently said the entire team expects to work out together in June if the lockout continues.
