Jets plan more team-bonding activities for 2012

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- In the wake of some very ugly postseason finger pointing, several New York Jets veterans are trying to find ways to improve team chemistry.

Starting left guard Matt Slauson says he learned about the possible team bonding activities recently while talking to members of the Jets' developmental department.

Slauson said he has not spoken to fellow players about the activities but he welcomed anything that would help bring the team closer after the drama following an 8-8 season in which the Jets miss the playoffs.

Slauson also disclosed Thursday at a news conference to announce that WrestleMania will be held at MetLife Stadium in 2013 that he played this past season with a torn labrum, rotator cuff and bicep in his left shoulder. He has had surgery.
