Popular Post JETS SB Posted March 24 Popular Post Share Posted March 24 At Barkley Center this evening, I was sitting in a suite with a few attorneys (I am an attorney, but you probably don’t care) and one is a player agent who preferred not to be mentioned. He said that since last year, after Elijah Moore demanded a trade, it was thought he came back to play and let go of his trade demand. This never happened. In fact, if you look into his twitter posts from that point on, he stressed bible verses about being disrespected and minimized by Jets coaching and management, not calling them out directly but subtly quoting certain passages and circling parts which mentioned those specific things. This has been a concern with the Jets management and once the Jets signed Allen Lazard and the OBJ rumors started up, he (not publicly this time) demanded to be traded again. Cleveland had made an offer early on and the Jets reconnected with them. A few other teams made lowball offers. Cleveland was the only team that would give us the 2nd. The Jets felt that if it were leaked out that he had demanded a trade again, we would lose leverage and wouldn’t have even gotten what we did for him. The agent also told me Moore and Saleh were not on speaking terms from the time he asked for a trade midseason and then was sent home, until he was traded. MLF and Moore had talked and Moore apologized to him. I am just passing on the info. Don’t know how true it is. The agent also said the Jets, under JD, had been offered trades for many of their draft picks from 2020 and 2021 including Becton, Mims, and Moore (not Wilson apparently) and refused to engage, as their preference was to keep their young guys and not give up on them, but they were forced into a corner with Moore and had to get rid of him while they could still salvage a decent draft pick and before OTAs, where it was likely he wouldn’t have showed up. 43 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
