New York Jets linebacker Blake Cashman spoke with C.J. Mosley recently, and he says the veteran is “more ready than ever.”

New York Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley hasn’t played football in a long time. After dressing for just two games in 2019, one of the Jets’ big-ticket players two offseasons ago opted out of the 2020 campaign due to COVID-19 concerns.

Ask anybody who’s played the game: It’s incredibly tough to return to form after a year off—no less two. Could anything be expected of the man who’ll be 29 by the time 2021 camp opens? One of his Jets teammates believes so.

Fellow linebacker Blake Cashman recently took part in an “ask me anything” on Instagram. Cashman’s view on Mosley led the way, as the youngster revealed that he worked out with the veteran recently.

“We were working out this week,” Cashman said. “He’s looking better and more ready than ever.”

Mosley, 28, hasn’t played since the infamous “Ghost Game” at MetLife Stadium in 2019. He gave it a go on Monday Night Football but didn’t look like himself and was soon pulled. After missing the rest of the season via injury, he opted out of the 2020 season.

This means Mosley’s contract suddenly froze, as everything is pushed back a year. Had Mosley played this past season, the Jets would have had the luxury of saving money by cutting the former Baltimore Ravens standout. As it stands right now, the Jets would take a $12.5 million hit if Mosley is cut prior to June 1 and $8 million post-June 1.

Cashman didn’t stop at Mosley. When asked who the funniest Jets player is, the linebacker called out cornerback Blessuan Austin. He also told fans that he’s already met with new head coach Robert Saleh and that he loved what he had to say.

If Cashman doesn’t dislocate something on his way out of the lockerroom, this team sure could use a quick WILL who can cover and make plays.
