It doesn’t seem like New York Jets players are siding with Elijah Moore
If the cryptic social media posts of Jets players are any indication, fans can rest assured that the Jets are remaining upbeat despite Moore’s situation. Multiple Jets players have appeared to give their two cents on the situation.
Sauce Gardner is responsible for the most notable post by a Jet that was likely referencing Moore.
On Friday, Gardner tweeted, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves.” This was posted less than one hour after Robert Saleh announced Moore will not play on Sunday.

Linebacker Kwon Alexander and running back Breece Hall liked Gardner’s tweet. Hall also liked the following tweet by former Jets offensive lineman Damien Woody, in which Woody says it is “definitely not the best look” for Moore to ask for a trade while his team is winning (although Woody also says the Jets should do a better job of getting him the football).
Re Elijah Moore…definitely not the best look asking for a trade while your team is playing winning football. On the flip side, this dude is too talented to be this underutilized. You mean you can’t find ways to get the ball in his hands?! Both parties need to figure this out!

On Wednesday, Quinnen Williams shared a post on Instagram stating, “No I in T.E.A.M”. This was prior to the report of Moore’s trade request, but Moore’s first public complaints about his targets came on Monday, so it seems likely that tensions were already brewing at the time of Williams’s post.

It certainly seems like the majority of the team remains committed to the ultimate goal, undeterred by Moore’s antics. Check out this video clip from practice on Thursday as Hall’s teammates present him with his Rookie of the Week belt. Spirits in Florham Park still appear to be sky-high.
We tried to have some fun with @BreeceH's second belt…
