NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Pro Football Writers Association of America is “satisfied” that the Jets are following the “spirit of the rules” in making coach Rex Ryan and owner Woody Johnson available to the media next Tuesday, rather than within the seven-day period required by the NFL.
The PFWA lodged a formal complaint with the league on Wednesday after the Jets violated the NFL policy by not having the owner, coach or general manager available until next week.
NFL rules state that all teams must make “a top executive” available within a week of their season ending.
In a statement on Thursday, the PFWA said that it looks forward to hearing from Ryan and Johnson “after discussing the circumstances with the Jets.” The team is searching for a new general manager after firing Mike Tannenbaum on Monday.
The Jets will take any good news — as inconsequential as it might be — at this point. Sound off with your thoughts and comments below…
