Pretty impressive reporting Dan Leberfeld

ESPN’s Rich Cimini was able to uncover information from behind-the-scenes meeting at the Jets’ complex. The subject was free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

“They held internal discussions on Jackson, with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg giving his blessing,” Cimini wrote for ESPN’s New York website. “Mornhinweg, who coached him with the Philadelphia Eagles, told people in the organization that Jackson — known for his bad-boy reputation — wouldn’t be a problem in the locker room. That apparently wasn’t enough to sway Idzik, who reportedly hadn’t reached out to Jackson’s agent as of Saturday.”

To find out what Mornhinweg said to Idzik, about Jackson, in a private meeting, is terrific reporting.

There is no way around it.

And I’m not being sarcastic.
