Newly-hired New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Sanchez will probably have “just a little bit of a leg up” in any quarterback competition the team has this offseason.
“All I needed him to say was that he apologizes and he won’t say my name again — I got that out of him,” Weatherford said. “I got that out of him, and I’m good. I’m not looking to stir the pot any more by suing him. That’s all I wanted.”

“I’m grateful for another opportunity to play this guy, and he will remember that hit,” Landry said. “Every time he sees me, he will remember that hit. If I’m in the box or I’m coming downhill, whatever, he will remember that hit.”
They played hard and they played better, but they fell short against the Texans on Monday night at MetLife Stadium. They were fortunate that the 5-0 Texans didn’t play their best game, but the Jets couldn’t take advantage of the opportunities that were in front of them.
