The New York Jets are now allowed to reopen the facility after New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s Tuesday morning announcement.

Just days after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo provided the green light for his state’s sports teams, the New Jersey stationed New York Jets have now seen the light at the end of the tunnel.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced Tuesday morning that professional sports teams can now return to training facilities as long as the respective leagues allow such an action.

“UPDATE: Professional sports teams in NJ may return to training and even competition – if their leagues choose to move in that direction. We have been in constant discussions with teams about necessary protocols to protect the health and safety of players, coaches, and personnel.”

Considering Roger Goodell pulled the trigger on a reopening last week, the rest is up to the Jets and Giants. What the Jets feel is right is what will be attacked moving forward.

The Jets are currently working with Gov. Murphy and state officials to ensure they follow the proper protocols, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

“Per Jets spokesman: They are working with Gov Murphy, NFL & docs ‘to establish prudent, health and safety measures for our staff and players. Based on those guidelines, we will begin to open our facility using a phased approach at a time that is most practical for our operations.'”

For the Jets (and the entire country), the last few months have presented a challenge, one most would argue was conquered in style. With the NHLPA already approving a 24-team tournament and baseball continuing discussions to return to action, things seem to be looking up for the sports fan in this country.
