FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The mission statement greets every New York Jets player as soon as he reaches the big glass doors to enter the team’s facility.

“One Team” is printed in bold, white letters on the left side just above the metal handle – and directly below the team’s logo – while “One Goal” adorns the right.

That’s the message coach Todd Bowles has been preaching to his team since early in the offseason. And there’s no ignoring it, with reminders painted in several places in the redecorated hallways and rooms that players use to work out, practice, eat meals and hold meetings.
