FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Kony Ealy was a rising star just a few years ago, making NFL history on football’s biggest stage.
The young defensive end’s career then suddenly sputtered, and he was traded and cut in a span of a few months. Now with the New York Jets, Ealy hopes to have found a home and is eager to put the past behind him.
“It just fills my tank up with a lot of gas, man,” a smiling Ealy said after practice Friday. “Able to get out here and just be able to perform, I’m not worried about any extra things that are going on. I just want to come out here and put a good show on. That’s it.”
