All this nonsense about a heated argument between Coach Saleh and me at the League Meeting is absolutely false. It is yet another irresponsible report from NFL Network. Please disregard.

Johnson also declared that his relationship with the head coach is absolutely fine. This came as a reaction to what NFL Network wrote in one of its articles. Colleen Woolfe, who belongs to the NFL Network, claimed that a heated conversation took place in the room between the two Jets stalwarts. It allegedly took place in New Orlando, Florida, at the League’s annual meeting.

The news generated significant reactions across various groups, particularly due to the Jets’ disappointing performance last season, which was affected by the absence of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Zach Wilson‘s inability to provide the necessary momentum compounded their struggles. With Johnson’s clarification, the Jets team is likely feeling relieved.

The Jets will look to shed the bad blood going into new season

The denial of the 76-year-old owner has been confirmed by Connor Hughes of SNY. The media person noted that the veteran owner took the associates to dinner and Saleh was present.

Johnson’s clash with the NFL Network is not new; they have clashed before. The latest incident has been added to the list of their disputes.

After the unsuccessful 2023-24 season, the New York Jets are in full swing to build the team. The return of Aaron Rodgers from his Achilles Tendon injury has triggered high hopes among the fans. In order to protect him, the team signed defensive tackle Tyron Smith. The former Dallas Cowboys man is the league’s one of the most successful offensive tackles.

Last season, the Jets’ offense struggled, facing numerous sacks. To address this issue, the team traded for Mike Williams from the Los Angeles Chargers. Williams, currently recovering from a torn ACL injury, is optimistic about being ready for the upcoming season.

The only problem that is concerning the Jets is the age of their offense. Rodgers is 40 and their latest two additions are in their mid-thirties. The age, along with their injury-prone attitude, can be a problem for the Jets.
