ESPN New York considers second-year S Josh Bush the "favorite" to win the Jets' starting free safety job.

Bush played in only five games on defense as a rookie, but did make eight special teams tackles and earned a longer look. The Jets got away with coverage liability Yeremiah Bell at free safety last year, so Bush can't be an enormous downgrade. The Wake Forest alum dabbled at both cornerback and safety in college.

Jets S Josh Bush is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

Bush has been donning a red non-contact jersey at OTAs, but he should be good to go for training camp. He played just 17 snaps on defense last season, but Bush is part of the trio -- along with Antonio Allen and Jaiquawn Jarrett -- competing for the starting safety spot next to Dawan Landry.

Jets DC Dennis Thurman says there will be a three-way competition between Josh Bush, Jaiquawn Jarrett and Antonio Allen to start opposite Dawan Landry at safety.

The trio combined for just 71 snaps last season, so it's a trouble spot. Jarrett was out of the league in 2012, while Allen is only really useful against the run. That leaves Bush as the slight favorite, but the Jets could still end up bringing in outside help. Re-signing Eric Smith is a possibility.

Sixth-round LB Danny Trevathan worked in the Broncos' first-team nickel package to open minicamp.

The Broncos are experimenting at linebacker with D.J. Williams' six-game suspension hanging over their heads. "(Trevathan) has attacked it really well as far as in the meeting rooms, in his playbook," coach John Fox said. "This game is so mental, and for a young guy, he's caught on pretty quickly."

Jets signed sixth-round DB Josh Bush to a four-year contract.

Although Bush is versatile enough to play cornerback, the Wake Forest standout is expected to primarily play safety for the Jets. He figures to mostly focus on special teams during his rookie campaign, but should push for a few snaps at safety behind Eric Smith and LaRon Landry.
