C.J. Mosley isn’t utilized to being on a team nobody believes will win. Following decades of sporting Baltimore Ravens purple and being called to make the playoffs, the linebacker took a massive pay raise to combine with the perennially downtrodden New York Jets.
Throughout offseason workouts, Mosley liked what he saw, and considers the soccer literati is underestimating Gang Green’s opportunities in 2019.

„Now that we’ve got a new small mix-up, obtained some new people around and some new faces, we’re all excited and we are all ready,“ he said earlier this offseason, through the team’s official site. „We all know the whole NFL is sleeping the Jets, so we’re all set to prove them wrong.“
The Jets overhauled the training team, bringing in trainer Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Gang Green also added the likes of Le’Veon Bell, Mosley, and Jamison Crowder in free agency, also snagged mammoth DT Quinnen Williams in the first round of this draft. The essential part of the equation is quarterback Sam Darnold making a leap in Year two.
„I believe we’re eager,“ Mosley said. „Absolutely young, and we know that. But as a team and together, we already know the people that are here, the coaches that are here and they’ve heard since they’ve been here is we’ll lose.“
The Jets have won 14 combined games over the past three decades, finishing in the basement of the AFC East in each of those campaigns. Stretching back further, since prior making the playoffs in 2010, the Jets have just 1 season in eight with greater compared to .500 record.
Mosley said he signed in New York to direct the turnaround.
„They always have been (doubters),“ he explained. „I had been when I wasn’t here. You’ve got to be truthful. That is another reason I came here, I’m always about great heritage and what better town and what better state to come in and develop a fantastic business around and be champions.“
