The New York Jets have had some rough times as of late.
The New England Patriots’ AFC East rivals recently released linebacker David Harris and are expected to part ways with wide receiver Eric Decker. This offseason, the Jets have removed 11 veterans from their roster and cut $68 million in salary.
And on Thursday, one of Patriots’ team owner Robert Kraft’s sons, added fuel to the fire by mocking the Jets’ ‘nonexistent’ Hall of Fame.
Josh Kraft, president of the Patriots Charitable Foundation, spoke to the 2017 Myra Kraft Community MVP Award winners at Gillette Stadium. Afterwards, he invited them to tour the Patriots’ Hall of Fame.
“It’s a great take,” Kraft said, “I’m not biased, but it’s a lot better than the Jets’ Hall of Fame, right? Which is nonexistent.”
He’s actually correct about that. The Jets do not have a Hall of Fame but they have a Ring of Honor that features Joe Namath, Don Maynard, Curtis Martin and more.
Gotta love some good old fashion smack talk between rivals, right?
