Last week, the biggest story in the NFL arose from the placement of Jets strength coach Sal Alosi and others on the edge of the sideline on punting plays.
Gone and largely forgotten thanks to the latest Jets-related distraction, owner Woody Johnson provided a post-script during his Thursday remarks with reporters.
Per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Johnson said that he called Dolphins owner Stephen Ross to apologize for the fact that Alosi’s antics tripped Miami gunner Nolan Carroll on December 12, and Johnson also called Patriots owner Robert Kraft to apologize for special-teams coordinator Mike Westhoff’s accusation that the Patriots engage in similar tactics.
The league is investigating both aspects of the situation. Whether any action is taken remains to be seen.
