New York Jets training camp will commence on July 26 in Cortland, NY, when players will practice as a unit for the first time since minicamp.
The 2013 season will start just six weeks thereafter.
The Jets have a lot to accomplish in a small amount if time if they expect to compete for a playoff berth after seemingly becoming the laughing stock of the NFL last season.
The biggest storyline heading into training camp for the Jets is the team's potential franchise-altering quarterback competition between veteran, second-rate QB Mark Sanchez and rookie Geno Smith.
There's more to talk about than that, though. The Jets feature a new-look offense that includes a revamped ground attack and depth-chart mania at wide receiver. Rex Ryan's defense is also newly focused on sustaining a forceful pass rush—a staple in the teams that reached consecutive conference championship games.
The age of complacent negligence has vacated Jets headquarters. It's time for competition to take place.
The following slideshow examines five of the Jets' biggest storylines heading into training camp.
