Some view Jets GM John Idzik as mainly a cap guy.
He thinks this is nonsense.
“I know this is probably one of the most resourceful groups of journalists in the world, so if you want to answer perceptions, I would ask you just to go back to the numerous people that I’ve worked alongside in my NFL career,” Idzik said. “They can own up to that.
“Football is at the root of who I am. I’ve been a football guy, so to speak. I don’t know exactly what that means, but (I’ve been in football) since I was a six-year-old. Once I got into the league, I got into the league purely as a scout. That’s always been in the background of what I do. Again, if there are any perceptions or any questions, there are plenty of resources out there to ask the people that I’ve worked with.”
