Jets HC Robert Saleh said that Moore was given an excused absence on Thursday to take a “personal day.”
This trade request came days after Moore put on Twitter he was confused about not receiving any targets during their win against the Green Bay Packers.
Saleh mentioned that he didn’t think Moore had “any bad intentions” with his social media post about not being more involved in Sunday’s win.
“We’ve had conversations,” Saleh said, via Pro Football Talk. “He’s fine. He’s a competitive young man. Like everybody, when you’re a competitor like him, he wants to contribute. Sometimes, we can think that our contributions are from production only when your contributions can come from a variety of different things in terms of the way you show up to the building, the way you lead, the way you communicate with your teammates, the effort that you put on the field. There are a million ways you can contribute to this football team. He’s a competitor and all he wants to do is contribute. So, I’ve got no problem with Elijah. He’s one of our high-character individuals. I love him to death. Eventually, the production part of it that he’s hoping for will come. He’s just continuing to work.”
In 2022, Moore has appeared in six games for the Jets and caught 16 passes for 203 yards receiving and no touchdowns.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
