Robert Saleh spoke to the media after the first day of the team’s rookie program

With the 2024 NFL draft in the books, the New York Jets‘ next phase of the offseason has officially arrived: rookie minicamp.

Following day No. 1 of rookie camp on Friday, Jets head coach Robert Saleh took to the podium to discuss the first day of working with the team’s new draft class and give his thoughts on the overall team, per the Jets’ official website. In addition to chatting up rookie quarterback Jordan Travis, Saleh provided an exciting Aaron Rodgers update and seemed excited about the incoming rookie class.

Per Saleh, quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still working through his rehab, but there are “no issues or restrictions.”

“Once phase 3 hits, we are not anticipating any restrictions from what we can and can’t do with him,” said Saleh.

The head coach also said the team plans to manage the reps of tackles Morgan Moses and Tyron Smith during the offseason. As a result, Max Mitchell, Carter Warren and rookie Olu Fashanu will get most of the reps.

Saleh also spoke about rookie Qwan’tez Stiggers and why he likes him as a player.

“He’s got a tremendous skill set, but we don’t think he will fail because of his mindset,” Saleh proclaimed. “People win championships, not athletes. I’m not saying he’s an athlete; he’s a phenomenal athlete.

“But he has an elite makeup. You could put him up against any corner with regard to athleticism, but it’s his mindset that we are really excited about.”

Regarding third-round choice Malachi Corley, Saleh mentioned the word “raw” concerning route running, but he also labeled it as “fun” when figuring out ways to get the ball in his hands. Moreover, he hopes Corley’s willingness to fight for yards becomes “contagious” for the rest of the team.

The 2024 season is imperative not only for the present roster but also for the long-term stability of the current regime. Friday marked the beginning of a long road to the start of the season, and it will be very interesting to see how the New York Jets’ offseason progresses.
