Todd Bowles talks firing John Morton, cutting Muhammad Wilkerson, and more at the Combine

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Just as Mike Maccagnan had a media session on Wednesday at the Scouting Combine, Jets head coach Todd Bowles did as well.

On Muhammad Wilkerson

There seemed to be little of substance said by Maccagnan. That wasn’t true of Bowles. This particular piece of information actually is useful. It shows the Jets were finished with Wilkerson. They didn’t want him back at any price apparently. Even if they didn’t think he would agree to a price that made sense for the Jets, there wouldn’t have been any harm in at least putting out feelers about a paycut.

The Jets wanted Wilkerson gone no matter what. It’s tough to blame them.

On Firing John Morton

Bowles better have found the right fit in Jeremy Bates because he probably won’t survive hiring a third coordinator he doesn’t philosophically align with.

On Quincy Enunwa’s Health

It would have been nice to get more information about when exactly they think Enunwa will be healthy. It presumably will affect the team’s strategy for acquiring wide receivers in the offseason.

On David Harris and Matt Forte

Wow, this was actually the rare Combine press conference that was relatively engaging and informative.
