It is going to work, Woody Johnson insists. When? Who knows?

That’s the message the Jets owner offered his paying customers yesterday during an offseason in which his team underwent tremendous change and has the look of a rebuilding franchise.

“Everybody is on the same page,’’ Johnson told reporters at the NFL career development symposium in Philadelphia. “We’re trying to make the team better each and every day. We’ve made some dramatic changes and it’s going to take a little bit of time for these changes to take hold, [but] I think they will take hold. I’m not going to predict exactly when, but they will take hold.’’

Fans, of course, want to know “when,’’ but Johnson did not make any promises. Following a 6-10 season, he fired general manager Mike Tannenbaum, hired John Idzik and refused to fork over huge bucks to extend the contract of cornerback Darrelle Revis, whom Idzik traded to the Buccaneers.
