Three key members of the New York Jets’ brass will attend Justin Fields’ pro day, but one prominent member will not be present.

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields – one of the top prospects in the 2021 NFL draft and a potential option for the New York Jets – will be holding his pro day in Columbus today.

According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, three members of the Jets’ organization will be present (the maximum limit – no more than three are allowed), but one notable team leader will not be in attendance.

General manager Joe Douglas and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur will get to see Fields in person, but assistant general manager Rex Hogan is making the trip instead of Saleh.

Early in the morning, this decision prompted speculation among Jets fans regarding whether the move was a sign that the team is leaning toward Zach Wilson (whose pro day Saleh did attend), but NFL Networks’ Peter Schrager cleared the air with some essential context.

Saleh and his wife are expecting their seventh child any day, explaining the head coach’s absence. There’s nothing to take away here regarding the Jets’ interest in Fields versus Wilson.

According to Breer, Fields’ workout was designed by former NFL quarterback John Beck, who also orchestrated Wilson’s workout. Fields will go through a 65-throw script that primarily focuses on his ability to get rid of the ball quickly – one of the top concerns that scouts have about his game. Many eyes will be fixated on Fields’ 40-yard-dash time as well.

Jets had pretty good representation. Fields had an outstanding day . Is there any price that Douglas would Trade Down to three ? SF offers a second and a fourth in 2021, and an additional second in 2022 ? Curious
