New York Jets owner Woody Johnson says that his team’s starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez, isn’t lazy, according to the New York Daily News.
“I’ve never heard that,” Johnson said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “He’s the first guy in the building every morning and the last guy to leave. So, the last thing he is is lazy. … He’s an NFL quarterback. That’s what you expect from an NFL quarterback….I think everybody is a little frustrated.”
Johnson’s comments come in response to a New York Daily News article yesterday that cited anonymous sources on the team who called Sanchez lazy. Other players who spoke to the paper anonymously said they would be open to trading Sanchez if they could acquire a healthy Peyton Manning.
