AFC East Notes: Hackenberg, Sheard, Patriots

Can the Jets bend league rules and keep all four of their quarterbacks by stashing Christian Hackenberg on IR? Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News thinks it’s a good idea. Technically, teams are prohibited from putting healthy players on injured reserve, but the rules for that are rarely enforced and just about every NFL player has a lingering injury. There is precedent for such a move and Mehta notes that Charley Casserly – mentor to GM Mike Maccagnan – has fudged injuries to rookie quarterbacks multiple times throughout his career as an exec.

        My thoughts exactly, they would also find a way to work the word “gate” into the cause or reasoning lol.

    Can Tebow just go away already please?? Tired of hearing about him. He’s like the punchline of every sports joke there is lately. Don’t go away mad, JUST GO AWAY!!!
