The New York Jets spent Wednesday learning how to be better leaders.
Head coach Rex Ryan sent 19 players to a leadership training seminar as a way promoting a harmonious existence for the season, something they were accused of not having.
After attending the seminar in May with his coaching staff, Ryan thought it would also be good for his players.
"We just had a great experience as a coaching staff, and I'm hoping the players have the same kind of experience we had," Ryan told reporters. "It was great. It was something I felt all of us gained some things out of. You saw a lot about each other. I thought it was good."
Ryan said the players would participate in "different exercises" under the supervision of professional instructors.
Quarterback Mark Sanchez and wide receiver Santonio Holmes were the most notable of the strained relationships from last year's chaotic team, and their feud made headlines after the season. Ryan said his top offseason priority was to fix the locker room.
