Clark’s attack on Saleh is receipt worthy.

When somebody calls you a liar that isn’t a very nice thing to do.

ESPN’s analyst Ryan Clark feels the Jets hired former Green Bay assistant Nathaniel Hackett to be their offensive coordinator to attract Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to the Jets.

Clark said the following on the ESPN Show – “Get Up:”

“Let’s bring [Hackett] to the Jets because of the quarterback he’s connected to. Robert Saleh (says), ‘Everybody in this league is connected.’ At least lie better. We know why you went out and got [Hackett].”

That is a powerful statement from Clark, considering there is no way to prove it, unless you are a mind reader, and are 100 percent sure Saleh hired Hackett just to get Rodgers.

It’s not like Saleh hired a guy he doesn’t know. Hackett and Saleh worked together on the Jacksonville staff in 2015-16.

And Hackett runs a similar West Coast offense to what the Jets have used the last two years, so they won’t have to teach their young players a new system from scratch.

Maybe on some level, Saleh thinks Hackett being on the Jets staff can help attract Rodgers, but remember Rodgers isn’t a free agent, it requires a trade, so this isn’t like college recruiting. Rodgers is under contract to another team.

But for Clark to say Saleh needs to “lie better” perhaps qualifies as a cheap shot, unless Clark knows for sure Hackett was hired for just one reason.

And it should be pointed out that the Jets’ radio flagship station is ESPN Radio New York.

This attack on Saleh by Clark is perhaps receipt worthy.
