By now, you’ve probably heard about the league’s decision to not renew the contract of former Jets player James Beard.
The move was widely criticized, with Beard tweeting “I have no desire to watch NFL games anymore.
I am tired of the jock jams” and adding, “I want the Jets to play in the Super Bowl again!”
And the NFL responded by re-signing Beard to a one-year deal worth $1.3 million per season.
But it seems that Beard will not be the only Jets fan left without the Jock Jammer.
According to the New York Post, former Jets linebacker and current ESPN analyst and analyst Matt Bowen will be taking the JK Jammer role.
Bowen, who has also worked for ESPN, is currently the head coach at the University of Alabama.
“Matt Bowen is my buddy and he’ll be doing the JJ Jammer duties,” Bowen told the Post.
“He’s one of my favorite offensive lineman.
I’ve been talking to him all day, he’s just great.
He’s going to be working with the quarterbacks, he’ll have the ball, and he’s going play the J.J. Watt game.
It’s going be awesome.
I’m going to watch.”
