Found June 09, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Former Jets and current Miami Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller told SiriusXM NFL Radio that he believes quarterback Mark Sanchez wasn’t very fond of the Jets bringing in Tim Tebow last season and drafting Geno Smith this offseason. “I think he doesn’t like the fact those moves were made,” Keller said, via NFL.com. “I don’t think those were things that made him happy. Could it possibly have been something that pushed him? Maybe, I’m not quite sure. But it definitely lit a fire underneath him. I’ve talked to him a couple of times this offseason and he’s been working. So, I think you can expect some good things from him.” Keller talked about the New York media as well. “There’s always some type of nonsense going on. When you’re in the New York media, you don’t say that you’re used to all of that; there’s always going to be distractions,” he said. “But this is really more so than anywhere else. You’re really talking about a team — we didn’t even go to the playoffs the year before — and it seemed like we’re in the media more than anyone else, and for the wrong reasons. You never want that. “Could it have anything to do with the season, kinda things falling apart? I really don’t know. When you’re in that market, it just has to be something you’re ready to deal with.” Need NFL Tickets?
