You’re not in Baltimore anymore, CJ Mosley. The four-time Pro Bowl inside linebacker spurned the Ravens in free agency in favor of the New York Jets — who offered him a record-setting contract (five years $85 million).

In the Big Apple, Mosley is getting a fresh start and starting his next chapter in his career. He said on that, per Manish Mehta of New York Daily News:

“I wouldn’t say it’s starting over, but I’m starting the next chapter. New city, new team, new teammates, new traditions. So, it’s a lot of new stuff. But once you step on the field, it’s like you’re right back in. You start building a new relationship with your new teammates. The guys have accepted me really quick. It’s kind of hard not to because Gregg [Williams – defensive coordinator] told them they got to listen to me.”

Mosley, 27, is starting his next chapter on a team on the rise. Not only did New York secure his services — that were mightily needed — they also happened to get a running back by the name of Le’Veon Bell, a slot receiver in Jamison Crowder, and arguably the 2019 NFL Draft’s most “sure-thing” prospect in defensive lineman Quinnen Williams. All of that is due to the Jets seeing 2018 No. 3 pick and quarterback Sam Darnold shine late in 2018 (teams got to love rookie quarterback contract).

In New York, Mosley is a focal point in an extremely talented (and young) defense. Not only will Mosley play with the talented Williams, but the Jets also boast franchise safety Jamal Adams, defensive end and game wrecker Leonard Williams, and well-paid cornerback Trumaine Johnson. But, as Mosley notes, the team is instructed to listen to him, as he’s the quarterback of the defense; calling plays and adjustments as a standout inside linebacker.
