Owner: Jets Can Be ‘Special’ Under GM, Robert Saleh

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson has a lot of confidence in the team’s brain trust.

“They’ve got a tremendous amount of leeway,” Johnson said of general manager Joe Douglas and coach Robert Saleh. “I’m totally in sync with these guys. Chris [Johnson] made some unbelievable choices, and we’re lucky to get both of those gentlemen.

“I couldn’t be more excited,” he continued. “I’m very optimistic, generally, but I’m particularly optimistic now when I see what happens on the field [in practice].”

The Jets, coming off a 2-14 season, face a rebuilding year with a rookie quarterback, Zach Wilson. Johnson, who made the playoffs six times in his first decade as the owner (2000-2010), said he wants to win now. He said this team could be “special,” but acknowledged it’s early.

“We’ll do everything in our power to put a winning team on the field this year … the first game, second game, third game,” he said. “Getting the right team in place, I think we’ve done an incredible job so far. But, yeah, we want to win. We’re in the win business. We didn’t sign up for this to lose.”
