Woody Johnson denies report of heated argument with Robert Saleh

Jets owner Woody Johnson took to Twitter/X Thursday to deny recent reports that he and head coach Robert Saleh had a heated argument during the Annual League Meeting in Orlando.

Earlier in the week, NFL Network’s Colleen Wolfe reported that Johnson and Saleh got into a “very heated argument” and things got “awkward”.

“I will say, from a very reliable source at the owners meetings, there was a very heated conversation between Woody and Robert Saleh, to the point where it was a little awkward,” Wolfe said Tuesday. (H/T CBS Sports)

Johnson is now telling fans to disregard that report, sharing the following message on Twitter.

SNY’s Connor Hughes also reported Wednesday night there was no such verbal argument between the two sides.

Johnson more or less gave Saleh and general manager Joe Douglas a “playoffs or bust” ultimatum for this season without actually coming right out and saying that.

All that said, the hopes of the Jets having a quiet offseason, while always unlikely, have quickly dashed yet again. Between Aaron Rodgers almost becoming a vice presidential candidate to Johnson first saying the Jets didn’t have a backup quarterback to walking those comments back and calling Zach Wilson a “valuable asset”. Now they have this to add to their plate. Just another typical offseason in Florham Park.
