On Friday afternoon, for whatever reason, Jets reporter Manish Mehta tweeted this out:
Case in point:
Just asked Kyle Long if there was any truth to the Jets talk rumors. He said, "No. None." https://t.co/ZcsnZ0JYZa— Rick Tarsitano (@RickTarsitano) June 5, 2020
and wow actually this too:
A source denied to me the NYDN report that the Jets are trying to coax former Bears Pro Bowl OG Kyle Long out of retirement— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) June 5, 2020
In fact, just Twitter search 'Kyle Long retired' or even just 'Kyle Long' and the answer's pretty evident. But rumors, rumors are no fun unless we are apart of one, so in that sense, this was great. In every other sense, this was dumb.
