Robert Saleh Interview at the Owners Meetings

Robert Saleh

NY Jets head coach Robert Saleh spoke to reporters at the owner’s meetings, and, you guessed it, Aaron Rodgers was the topic of conversation. As much as Saleh tried to say I will defer to Joe Douglas, the questions kept coming. He said he couldn’t discuss it but did add we have come a long way in two years. A lot of excitement around the organization and players wanting to be here shows that.

What is the cut-off point? More of a Joe Douglas question, a coach always wants things yesterday. Zach is the # 2 quarterback, he has a future in this league. He has the work ethic and the mindset.

Did you speak with Zach after the Pat McAfee interview? He has been great, and he is working his butt off back home. He hasn’t come close to sniffing his ceiling. Allen Lazard, Odell Beckham Jr, Mecole Hardman, Corey Davis and Elijah Moore were other big topics in this interview.

Calais Campbell was another name that came up, but Saleh deferred to Douglas once again. How about Zeke Elliot from the Cowboys? Didn’t sound like the Jets were interested as the answer was, we love our running back room and I will leave it at that.

Offensive Line? Duane Brown is rehabbing and looking good, I have to start drinking the water he is drinking. Mekhi, I know he is posting pictures, he is working hard. Saleh also mentioned that Max Mitchell is expected back next season.
