Good morning, Jet fans! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. The weekend was somewhat eventful for the Jets. As we all know Woody’s brother Chris Johnson spoke at the annual owner’s meeting and had some not so interesting things to say. However it’s really interesting how much confidence someone has in a team that supposedly doesn’t have any sort of playoff mandate for the upcoming season. Even if it isn’t for coach Adam Gase, Mike Maccagnan should be under some sort of leash going into this season. In other somewhat Jet related news, Patriots’ TE Robert Gronkowski has officially retired. It isn’t exactly as news-breaking as outlets have made it out to be considering how many injuries the TE has faced throughout the years. It is however one less nearly unguardable target for Tom Brady to have success with. They came away with a ring this past year so the guy might as well retire on top. Not many get to do so, and although a rival he’s a helluva player so respects to Gronk. With that, here are your daily links for the team to start your weekday.
