Now, Williamson is close to returning to play, and the Jets need him more than ever after C.J. Mosley opted out of the 2020 season. Williamson said he will be ready for the season, and he is over the bitterness that followed the injury last year. At the end of the day, if you hold onto stuff like that it’s just going to eat away at you,” Williamson said via Zoom on Wednesday.
The New York Jets lost their two best defensive players in the span of eight days last week, when Jamal Adams was traded and C.J. Mosley opted out for the season because of family health concerns over the pandemic. But they’re confident they can pick up the pieces and move on. Obviously, were going to miss him,” Jets coach Adam Gase said in a conference call Tuesday.
New York Jets offensive lineman Leo Koloamatangi has already made the decision to opt out of the 2020 NFL season due to the coronavirus pandemic. He lost two family members to the virus, and he currently has a close friend fighting to survive. Koloamatangi said his decision to opt out was “one of the hardest” to make in his life.
