Several Jets youngsters have been vocal on social media in their excitement over adding potential stars like Aaron Rodgers and Odell Beckham Jr., but BT saw something on Thursday that pushed things too far.
Running back Breece Hall, not so cryptically, tweeted his belief that the Jets didn’t need Ezekiel Elliot, shortly after reports surfaced that New York was in the running for the former Cowboys star. Michael Carter Jr. also got involved, and BT wasn’t happy about it.
“I’m not saying I want Ezekiel Elliot on the Jets. I don’t. I think he’s cooked,” BT said. “What’s starting to bother me, and two Jets did this yesterday. It’s beginning to truly bother me when current players are weighing in on possible moves that their team might make.
“I don’t mean when they’re like, ‘Come join us,’ that’s fine. But when you’re putting it out there that we don’t need you…it’s a bad look. You’re a player.”
Social media has allowed players to be much more vocal about the teams they play for, but BT says actively speaking out against your team bringing in a new player crosses a line.
“When you’re literally texting out an opinion that the Jets shouldn’t sign a player that is reportedly connected to the Jets,” BT said. “It’s not your job.”
