Jets Being Investigated for Jets West, Actions Around Female Reporter

The league is investigating a pair of situations involving the Jets off the field.

The first involves treatment of a female reporter at team facilities:

Ines Sainz was at the Jets' Florham Park facility Saturday to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez. During the portion of practice open to the media, secondary coach Dennis Thurman purposely overthrew passes during position drills so they would land near Sainz, and according to one report, coach Rex Ryan joined in as well.

The second involves Mark Sanchez's offseason passing camp with his receivers

An unidentified team has filed a formal complaint with NFL against the New York Jets, claiming an eight-player "Jets West Camp" organized in July by quarterback Mark Sanchez violated the league's offseason training rules because coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer attended a couple of sessions.

These are ongoing investigations. While I'm sure some will use this to smear the organization, facts are still being compiled.

The second charge seems relatively benign. It seems like Ryan and Schottenheimer allegedly just popped into a practice. The first would be quite disturbing and upsetting if true.
