Lost in all of the player movement yesterday, Jets head coach Todd Bowles addressed the situation involving Darron Lee and Leonard Williams from over the weekend. Bowles seemed to confirm Lee was the person Williams was restraining in the video that was posted on social media by somebody attending a music festival. Bowles also stated the Jets will not discipline Lee.
