The heat was on in more ways than one, as rookie New York Jets receiver Elijah Moore took to the parks of Brooklyn with A.J. Brown.
Elijah Moore‘s training camp practices in Oxford, MI were routinely staged in temperatures that flirted with triple digits. A Brooklyn heatwave was thus no excuse to move things indoors.
The New York Jets‘ rookie receiver joined fellow Ole Miss Rebel A.J. Brown and several other heat misers for an outdoor workout in what appears to be Lincoln Terrace Park’s Urban Playground.
A heat advisory is in effect in Brooklyn, where temperatures have remained stuck in the 90s all week. That was no obstacle for Moore and Brown, who each partook in the Rebels’ 2018 endeavors.
That Brooklyn work is different 💪

“Pulled up on them boys in Brooklyn to get that real WERK. Much respect to them boys fr! [sic]” Moore wrote in his Instagram caption commemorating the activities. “(I)f you think you workin hard. Reevaluate! bc these boys comin different. It’s always someone who want it! [sic]”
The Jets shared a video from Moore’s Instagram on their own social media channels, in which Brown addresses the camera and praises his constituents for braving the heat to work out.
Pull-ups on the jungle gym and push-ups are among the activities, but they’re nothing to stop one participant from declaring Moore’s Jets and Brown’s Tennessee Titans his new favorite football teams.
According to Brown, participants were required to perform 1,000 repetitions, similar to the quadruple-digit yardage tallies he’s had no issue earning in Nashville.
The 2020 Pro Bowler, set to enter his third NFL season was teammates with Moore during the 2018 season, a 1,320-yard effort that led to the Titans taking him 51st overall in the ensuing year’s draft.
Moore went in the same round in the most recent addition last April. Naturally, a moment between the former teammates after Moore’s drafting previously went viral.
