NFL Owner Refutes Report of Heated Argument with Coach During Owners Meetings

Jets owner Woody Johnson criticizes NFL-owned media outlet for publishing ‘inaccurate’ report about alleged argument with coach Robert Saleh

This week, the New York Jets have faced some off-field issues. Firstly, star quarterback Aaron Rodgers was not selected as a 2024 U.S. vice-presidential candidate, despite attracting interest from one politician. However, the team is now trying to address another issue, with team owner Woody Johnson refuting a report from NFL Media about an alleged “heated argument” he had with Jets coach Robert Saleh during the league owners meetings. Johnson wrote on X (formerly Twitter), “All this nonsense about a heated argument between Coach Saleh and me at the league meeting is absolutely false. It is yet another irresponsible report from NFL Network. Please disregard.”

The NFL Network, which is owned by the NFL, did not prevent Colleen Wolfe, an NFL Network personality who appears on “Good Morning Football,” from suggesting that Johnson and Saleh were at odds during a recent “Around the NFL” podcast. She stated, “I will say, from a very reliable source at the owners meetings, there was a very heated conversation between Woody and Robert Saleh, to the point where it was a little awkward,” Wolfe said Tuesday. However, when pressed about the matter by podcast co-hosts Dan Hanzus and Marc Sessler, Wolfe downplayed the conversation and refused to label it as an argument but still tried to fuel speculation about it by asking questions like what they were arguing about at the owners meetings or at last night’s party.

SNY quickly reported that no such conversation occurred at the reception for NFL owners after further investigation into this matter.
