Curious answer from Saleh Dan Leberfeld

After the Jets’ loss to New England, Jets head coach Robert Saleh was asked why dismayed wide receiver Elijah Moore didn’t play more.

“With Corey (Davis) being out, just a chance to get Garrett (Wilson) on the field a little more,” Saleh said.

Some were perplexed by this answer because Wilson was already playing a lot.

Saleh said Moore’s recent trade request had nothing to do with his diminished playing time.

Moore complained recently about his role in the offense, leading to the player being deactivated for the Jets game in Denver.

After the New England game, Moore explained one reason he’s up upset with his lack of touches is “I’ve got a family to feed, too.” Clearly, he feels not getting the ball will hurt him in his next contract. He’s under contract for the next two-and-half years with the Jets.

It will be interesting to see where this goes.
