Elijah Moore, a wide receiver for the New York Jets, returned to practice on Friday after taking a “personal day.” The youthful pass receiver is now talking candidly about his performance.
After the Jets’ practice on Friday, Moore addressed the media. Moore responded that his performance didn’t really matter in the big picture when asked if he was frustrated.
“I am aware of what matters, and that is a success. In reality, it’s not about me, Moore remarked on Friday. “(Winning) is everything. It wouldn’t really matter if I had no numbers and we won every game.

On Thursday, Moore allegedly expressed his dissatisfaction with his position in the Jet’s offense. Things came to the point where the coaching staff of the team decided it would be best to send the former second-round pick away to calm down.
The Ole Miss product vented his annoyance after the Jets defeated the Green Bay Packers 27-10. Despite winning, Moore had no specific targets and turned to Twitter to voice his opinions.
If I express myself honestly, I’ll play the egotistical man, and we win. Grateful! enormous blessing All I’ve ever desired. Butter sweet is fine with me, but I’ll be firm. I’ll just keep silent, then. Just know that I share your ignorance,” the Jets receiver wrote on Twitter.
On Thursday, Moore reportedly even went so far as to ask for a trade away from the squad. In that regard, he joins Denzel Mims, who put in a trade request at the end of the preseason.
A deal for Moore, however, doesn’t appear realistic. On Friday, Jets head coach Robert Saleh shot down such a notion. Things could alter with the trade deadline on November 1.
When the Jets play the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Moore won’t be on the field. And one has to wonder if Elijah Moore’s days as a Jet are numbered.
