Yesterday New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie said that he’s the team’s second best wide receiver now that head coach Rex Ryan plans on having a special offensive package for him.
Schillens wasn’t happy about Cromartie’s comments.
“We’ll address it on the football field,” said Schilens, the 6-foot-4 former Oakland Raiders receiver who signed with the Jets this offseason. “… I think it’s a slight, I’m not going to lie. I just wouldn’t say it, it’s not something I would say but I’m not him I guess.”
Ryan addressed the situation by letting everyone know he’s in charge.
“I’m going to say this right now, listen to me when I tell you this,” Ryan said, “I’m aware of what was said. OK? I’m on top of it, I’m telling you that right now. I’m on top of it, and it will not be a problem. And that’s all that I’m going to say about the whole thing.”
Looks like the Jets have already returned to their 2011 form.
