Jets’ Adam Gase unhappy with players’ social media complaints
New York Jets players have made a habit out of voicing their displeasure with the team on social media this season, and head coach Adam Gase has had enough of it.
On Thursday night, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa became the latest Jets player to call the team out, ripping Gang Green for fining him $27,900 for missing medical treatments.
Enunwa deemed the fine “excessive” and said he wished New York would have handled the situation better.
In a season where safety Jamal Adams and now-former offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele also took their frustrations with the organization out on Twitter, Enunwa’s rant was the last straw:
“We handle our stuff in-house,” Gase said Friday, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. “Some people choose to use social media. There’s probably a reason they’re doing that.”
Gase would not elaborate on Enunwa, saying the Jets would handle that privately:
“We know how we do things,” Gase said. “That’s the way it is.”
Of course, Gase is not necessarily innocent in this matter.
Enunwa apparently initially became upset over his fine because it was posted on a video board in the team room where everyone else could see it, a practice that Gase also did during his time with the Miami Dolphins.
Enunwa suffered a season-ending neck injury back in Week 1 and missed treatments on Nov. 8 and Nov. 11 because of a home emergency and a Veteran’s Day lunch with his wife, who is a veteran.
The 27-year-old is under contract with the Jets through 2023.
New York is just 2-7 on the season.
