Jets' Breno Giacomini says of Chris Johnson: 'He's been a 2,000-yard back before, so why not again?'

Jets' Breno Giacomini says of Chris Johnson: 'He's been a 2,000-yard back before, so why not again?'

Breno Giacomini on Jets' offense: 'We should be explosive. We have all the materials to be'

Training camp preview: Offensive line

Breaking down the New York Jets' roster, unit by unit, in preparation for training camp, July 23: Projected starters: D'Brickashaw Ferguson (LT), Brian Winters (LG), Nick Mangold (C), Willie Colon (RG), Breno Giacomini (RT). Projected reserves: Oday Aboushi, Ben Ijalana, Dalton Freeman, Dakota Dozier. Notables on the bubble: Caleb Schlauderaff, William Campbell. Player to watch: Giacomini. The Jets took a calculated risk in free agency, letting a young, ascending right tackle (Austin Howard) walk out the door and replacing him with the unheralded Giacomini.

Jets players select most memorable game

Taking a break from serious football topics, we decided to lighten the mood by asking several players on the New York Jets to name the most memorable game of their career -- high school, college or pro. Here's what we found: Breno Giacomini (formerly of the Seattle Seahawks): "It has to be the Super Bowl.

We had two weeks to prepare for them, and the battle we had to go through to get to them, San Francisco, was tough.

Giacomini rooting for Brazil in World Cup

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- When Brazil takes on Cameroon today at 3 p.m. ET, there will be one New York Jets player with a heavy rooting interest. Offensive tackle Breno Giacomini speaks fluent Portuguese after his parents arrived in the United States from Brazil in 1985, before he was born. He's spent time with his extended family, who lives about four hours away from Belo Horizonte in Minas Gerais, where one of the World Cup stadiums have been built.
