Jets receivers adjusting to Favre's passes

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- Brett Favre's impact is already being felt by the Jets.

Wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery said Monday that whatever route you have, run it hard because the ball could be coming. Favre's new Jets teammates are doing all they can to get used to the high-speed throws from their rifle-armed quarterback.

Tight end Bubba Franks says not many people realize how quick his release is, adding that Favre "can still play football."

Cotchery is doing extra hand-strengthening exercises. Chris Baker and Dustin Keller are spending time after practice catching close-range passes from the JUGS machine, learning that they always need to be ready.

Favre has wowed the large crowds packing Long Island's Hofstra University to catch a glimpse of their new quarterback with a few classic throws.
