- Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets informed the NFL Players Association that they found surveillance equipment hidden in smoke detectors within their locker room in late October.
- According to Mehta, the league claims that cameras have been inside and adjacent to the Jets’ locker room since 2008 when the organization relocated its training facilities from Long Island to Florham Park, New Jersey.
- Mehta adds that the NFL concluded that players were aware of the cameras and the recording equipment is compliant with league rules.
- However, Mehta spoke to several current and former Jets players from the 2008 team, all of which said they were unaware of surveillance cameras in the locker room: “I’m pissed. That’s our space. Why would you have a camera in there? That’s bullsh—,” said a former Jets player.

- According to Costello, the Jets cut CB Quincy Wilson after he requested to be released by the organization and HC Adam Gase was “on the same page” with Wilson.
- Gase added that Wilson’s release opens a roster spot for rookie CB Bryce Hall to activated off the non-football injury list. (Costello)
Steelers’ LB Avery Williamson spoke his mind about going from a winless Jets team to an undefeated Pittsburgh roster via a trade prior to the deadline.
“Shoot, it was pretty crazy,” Williamson said, via Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I didn’t know if it was going to happen. When it did, I couldn’t believe it. Winless to undefeated is pretty crazy.”
While the team is hoping to get Williamson on the field as soon as possible, he is looking forward to being reunited with fellow Kentucky linebacker and former teammate Bud Dupree.
“We didn’t think we’d ever get this opportunity again,” Williamson said. “He was super excited when he found out. We didn’t ever think we’d be teammates again, and now we have a chance to win a Super Bowl together.”
