Jets cancel next week’s mandatory minicamp in favor of extra rest before Hall of Fame game – The Denver Post

The Jets were scheduled to hold a mandatory minicamp next week, but opted to take an early vacation instead.

Jets head coach Robert Saleh told the media Wednesday morning that Gang Green will skip the three-day session next week. Basically, the Jets won’t be hosting the mandatory minicamp next week because the team (along with the Cleveland Browns) will show up to training camp a week earlier than the rest of the league since they’ll be playing in the game. annual Hall of Fame pre-season. August 3.

“Guys have to walk away,” Saleh said. “We’re here, they’ve had a really good offseason, all the guys since April. So they have been here.

“Just to give the guys an extra week off. You need a week off and you need to cheer up and get ready for the season. Having an extra week, taking a week off, there are a lot of things that can mess up the flow.

It makes sense for the Jets to skip next week’s session. They would be at a disadvantage if they held a minicamp next week. Thirty teams will have six weeks off before the start of training camp around July 27-28. The Jets and Browns will likely hold their first session of training camp on July 21 or 22.

Most of the Jets’ players have been around during their offseason program, which began in April before Aaron Rodgers was officially traded on April 26. One of the missing players is defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, who was seeking a contract extension before. the start of the season.

Williams told reporters in January that he would not attend OTAs, which are optional and has kept his promise so far. Additionally, Williams and his wife recently welcomed their first child this month. Williams will earn $9.6 million in the final year of his rookie contract, which is fully guaranteed.

Before it was canceled, there was a question about whether Williams would attend the mandatory minicamp. Now Williams will not be subject to fines for an unexcused absence which has a maximum fine of $15,515 for the first day missed, $31,030 for the second and $46,540 for the third (up to $93,085 in total).

Although the Jets did not extend Williams, several defensive tackles were called this offseason. Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver was granted a four-year extension worth $68 million over the weekend. The deal includes $45 million guaranteed.

If Williams doesn’t receive a contract extension before training camp and refuses to show up, the Jets could fine him $40,000 to $50,000 a day.

“I speak for everyone – I probably speak for Quinnen as we all want this to happen as soon as possible,” Saleh said. “I’ll let the business people handle all of this, but it’s going to happen.

“He’ll be there for camp, he’ll be ready to roll and once he gets there I’m sure he’ll be the same guy that was here.”
