Bryce Petty wants to be the Jets backup QB. Connor Hughes of NJ.com writes:

"Yeah, I really do," Petty told NJ Advance Media when asked if he can be the Jets No. 2 quarterback. "For me, right now, I have no doubt with where I'm at that I can play."

Former Bear Josh Gordon is ready for a new chance. After sitting out the first four games, he’ll return with the Browns. The Associated Press notes:

Recently reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell following a lengthy drug suspension, Gordon said he's been changed by his experience over the past two years. He's grown up, learned from his mistakes and is ready to be productive again.

"I definitely think I'm a different person," he said. "If you haven't changed over a period of time, it's definitely a bad thing. I think me standing here is a testament to that."

Corey Coleman hopes to be the Browns best wide receiver. From Matthew Florjancic of wkyc.com:

“I do want to be the best receiver on this team,” Coleman said on the eve of training camp. “That’s my goal. When I was at Baylor, I wanted to be the best receiver on that team. That’s just the way I am. I work really hard and live up to that goal.”

Already an impact player within the Bears’ offense heading into the 2015 season, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Coleman set new career bests during the year when he turned 74 catches into 1,363 yards and 20 touchdowns for a Baylor team that won its first eight games of the season.
