Today, Willie Colon added onto the pile:
Colon: "I believe in keeping things in house, but for the most part it was an issue."
Colon: "It’s one of those things where as a pro ball player it’s not hard to be there on time."
Colon: "It’s the little things like that, the little things you just don’t talk about. You be on time; you be accountable for your actions."
Colon also said new @nyjets HC Todd Bowles stressed accountability in opening message to team when offseason program began.
Colon isn't the only veteran to indicate that accountability was an issue; Demario Davis (link) and Nick Mangold (link) have also previously made similar comments. It seems awfully cowardly that Ryan has only gone after the rookie when three of the most respected veterans in the locker room have made similar accusations. I'm confident people will go after Willie the Penalty Machine for hypocrisy, but it's evident that this was a deep issue in among the team last year, and the more people that state it, the clearer it gets, no matter what Ryan says.
