New York Jets – Taking A Lead On Anthem Policy?

Joe Caporoso with thoughts on the New York Jets response to the NFL’s new National Anthem policy…

Last week NFL owners unanimously enacted a policy requiring players to stand for the National Anthem. Players have the option to stay in the locker room during the song but if they are on the field, they will be fined if they protest in any way, including sitting or kneeling. Shortly after the policy was announced, New York Jets interim owner Christopher Johnson had the following to say:

“I do not like imposing any club-specific rules,” Johnson said. “If somebody [on the Jets] takes a knee, that fine will be borne by the organization, by me, not the players. I never want to put restrictions on the speech of our players. Do I prefer that they stand? Of course. But I understand if they felt the need to protest. There are some big, complicated issues that we’re all struggling with, and our players are on the front lines. I don’t want to come down on them like a ton of bricks, and I won’t. There will be no club fines or suspensions or any sort of repercussions. If the team gets fined, that’s just something I’ll have to bear.”

“I seriously struggled with this,” he said of the anthem modifications approved by the owners. “You know my position on the anthem, and you have to understand that the plan we ended up with, due to some serious work in the [meeting] room, was vastly less onerous than the one that was presented to me late last week. In the end, I felt I had to support it from a membership standpoint.”

Jets Brasil – E A Liberdade De Expresao

Arthur Irwin for Jets Brasil on Christopher Johnson’s response to the NFL’s new anthem policy…

A NFL durante essa inter-temporada aprovou algumas regras consideradas polêmicas. A primeira já criou um alvoroço quando a liga aprovou que não será permitido mais que o jogador, premeditadamente, antes do contato, abaixe a cabeça para promover o primeiro impacto com essa parte do corpo.

New York Jets – Breaking Down the Tight End Battle

Clayton Smarslok breaks down the New York Jets battle for reps at the tight end position…

Ever since Dustin Keller left via free agency after the 2012 season, the Jets have not been able to get any kind of consistent play out of the tight end position. That’s not to say they haven’t tried. They drafted Jace Amaro with a second round pick in 2014 and after he busted they picked up another second rounder from that year, Austin Seferian-Jenkins during the 2016 season. Seferian-Jenkins may have been the most successful since Keller’s departure but still had inconsistencies in his game before signing with Jacksonville in March.

This left the team with a bunch of question marks at the position. Those question marks include Chris Herndon, Bucky Hodges, Jordan Leggett, Neal Sterling, Eric Tomlinson and Clive Walford. While there are no names that really stand out, let’s take a look at the players that have the best chances of playing in green and white come September.

Sitting Sam Darnold in Year One: Lower Half Mechanics & Decision Making

Joseph Ferraiola makes the case for sitting Sam Darnold in year one…

In many ways the 2018 NFL Draft was a critical one for the New York Jets. Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan made a bold decision in mid-March to trade up from the 6th overall selection to the 3rd overall selection that was previously occupied by the Indianapolis Colts. Maccagnan sent Indianapolis the 6th overall pick in addition to the 37th, 49th and a future 2019 2nd round pick to move up three spots in the process.
