It appears the tumultuous state of the Jets organization left a lasting impression in the minds of players, as one impending free agent is wary about taking his talents to the Big Apple.
Appearing on SiriusXM NFL Radio with Adam Schein Monday, running back Mike Tolbert was asked about who he’d like to play for next season, and gave a not-so-flattering answer when Gang Green was mentioned as a possible destination.

On the other hand, the Jets’ MetLife Stadium co-tenants are a more respectable option to Tolbert, who feels he could fill the void for left by Brandon Jacobs, and “raved” about quarterback Eli Manning.
