1 Owner, 2 General Managers, 3 Oline coaches, hundreds of teammates, and thousands of die hard fans… it’s been a hell of a 3 years and I enjoyed every single day of being a JET! I firstly want to thank the organization for the opportunity to be a part of the Gang Green family. From the first time I visited Florham Park, I’ve been treated with the utmost respect and professionalism. Being the recipient of the teams Walter Payton Man of the Year award was a truly an honor and a memory that will forever be seared in my soul. For that I thank you. . To my brothers in the locker room… damn I’m going to miss y’all!! The daily battles at practice, the gut cramping laughter, and the genuine passion and emotion on game day… these are the times that made me truly love being a Jet. For that I thank you. . Lastly to Jets Nation aka the amazing fans… thank you for your unwavering support over the last few years. Through the ups, downs, rain, or frozen tundra… y’all showed constant love! For that I thank you. . All that being said… New Jersey and New York it’s been real! My journey is far from over. Just happen to be turning the page to a new chapter 🤙🏿✊🏿. . @nyjets @nfl @teamifa
