Robert Saleh updates Elijah Moore's status amid trade request
New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore won’t be making the trip to Denver this weekend with the team, as was recently announced by head coach Robert Saleh on Friday.
Moore recently had a blow-up with a coach in the midst of a trade request that he’s not been granted, and the team seems to be focused on trying to work things out moving forward so that the former Ole Miss standout can remain with the team.
He will stay behind in New Jersey with the conditioning staff as an injured player would.
“To ask him to play a football game with where he is from a mental standpoint wouldn’t be fair to him, in my opinion,” coach Robert Saleh told reporters. “But that’s strictly my decision.”
Saleh called Moore a “high character individual” as he elaborated upon the situation further.
