One of the big questions urging Jets and their new head coach is when owner Woody Johnson will return from England, and will he be involved in this recruitment?
Christopher Johnson, CEO and Chairman of Jets, has been running the team since Woody became US Ambassador to the United Kingdom in 2017. Christopher said on Monday that Woody’s return date is still unknown. He remains an ambassador until January 20, when Joe Biden becomes president. But even when his brother returns, Christopher plans to play a more active role in the organization than before Woody left.
“I’m not going anywhere in this building. I’m still here,” said Christopher Johnson. “There is a lot of continuity. My role will be important in the future. But whenever he returns, he will have the final say on decision making. I am important here. Will be a good adviser and will do most of what happens here. “
When it comes to coaching searches, Woody does not play an active role and is not involved in the interview. Christopher is expected to know Woody as the search progresses. There is no doubt that some coach candidates are worried that a new boss may be born weeks after being hired. Jets will have to alleviate those concerns.
Left tackle Meky Becton suffered a high ankle sprain against the Patriots at Sunday’s season finale. Becton said his priority now is to be healthy and then he will start training for his second season.
One of his goals is to lose weight. He started at £ 370 this season.
“I’m going to withdraw it. I’m working on getting rid of it,” Becton said.
Becton suffered shoulder, chest and ankle injuries this season. He said he only thought it was part of football. He wants to improve some techniques this offseason.
“To fix small things that need to be tackled, such as technical things, raise your IQ in football and learn more about the game this offseason. That’s something that’s often overlooked,” Becton said. He talked about his off-season goals.
Jets has signed the following players for booking / future contracts: TE Connor Davis, LB Noad Tokins, K Samficken, RB Pete Geriero, DB Zane Lewis, WR Josh Malone, WR DJ Montgomery, WR Jarry Scott, QB Mike White.
