They put a lot on his shoulders, and he rises to the occasion. He’s able to run the ball, he can throw the ball, he has the arm strength to throw it anywhere on the football field and he makes great decisions.

Jets WR Braxton Berrios mentioned he has had some brief contract discussions about re-signing in New York. He is unsure what will happen in his near future but believes that the team is trending in the right direction under HC Robert Saleh.
“Truly, truly, I think they’re heading in a very good direction,” Berrios said, via SNY.tv. “I love the coaching staff there. Most of ’em, they’re young, they know what they’re doing, communicate well and Saleh is a phenomenal coach.”
