Jets LB C.J. Mosley says it ‘doesn’t matter’ if Adam Gase thought his contract was too big
The New York Jets made a number of lucrative signings in free agency with the addition of running back Le’Veonbell and linebacker C.J. Mosley. Unfortunately, there has been concern about some friction with head coach Adam Gase after reports surfaced about his opinions on the matter.
Rumors suggest that Gase feels the Jets may have gone a bit overboard with their recent signings. According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, Mosley insists that it no longer matters.
“It doesn’t matter. I’m here now,” Mosley said.
Mosley signed a blockbuster five-year, $85 million deal with $43 million guaranteed, effectively making him the highest-paid inside linebacker in the league. There is little reason for him to be concerned with all the rumors no that he has broken the bank with his new deal. While he may be trying to downplay all the reports, many have speculated that this has left some lingering tensions between both sides.
Gase is now serving as the interim general manager as well after the Jets parted ways with Mike Maccaggnan. He has already caught plenty of flak for his handling of the whole situation. It is safe to say that Gase has dropped the ball on getting a fresh start in New York this season.
Regardless, Mosley’s only concern is providing the team with as much bang for their buck as he can. He was certainly deserving after being named a four-time All-Pro in his first five seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. The four-time Pro Bowler will be taking on his biggest responsibility yet as the unquestioned leader on defense.
