Greg McElroy's Message for the New York Jets and Fans

Greg McElroy has been released, after three years with the Jets. Reports are that he will be signing on with the Bengals to their practice squad. Greg wanted to leave New York with this note, 24 hours after he was let go:

After 24 hours of reflection and thought, I would like to thank the New York Jets and their fans for bringing so much joy to my life over the last two years. Thank you to Rex Ryan, Mike Tannenbaum, and Woody Johnson for allowing me to achieve my lifelong dream of playing Quarterback in the NFL. I would also like to thank John Idzik for his extremely professional approach throughout this time. I do believe that he has a remarkable vision for the organization, and I wish I could’ve been a part of it.

I would like to wish the organization the very best going forward and thank you again for having such a profound impact on my life. I look forward to the next opportunity.

McElroy is a class act, through and through. We wish him the best in whatever he decides to do.

    I don’t know that I agree that he ‘is a class act, through and through’ but it was a nice departing note. And it does leave me wishing him well, not the same as I felt about him after the Sanchez comments from a few months back, which many felt were his comments.

    • Alan Schechter

      Fair enough Matr…I can understand that.

    • Lamont Cranston

      What?? Daaaaaaaaaaa…..

  • Frank Antonelli

    He’d make a great politician.

  • Paul Newbold

    Later G Mac…its been fun!

  • Bennny K

    I really hope Sanchez’s goodbye is as nice as Gmac’s when he gets cut soon.

    • Frank Antonelli

      Sanchez is not going to get cut since the cap hit would be much greater if they cut him then if they just kept him on the roster for the whole year.

      • Bennny K

        Lol, I know, I was just trying to be witty.

      • matr dontelli iii

        I could be wrong but I think we’ve got the space to cut him if they want to, however I also believe it would eat up virtually all of our space and leave us short in the event we needed to make some moves, not to mention that as much as I hate to say it but it is possible we may need him at some point. We’d be probably be better off if Rex put him in harms’ way again and we had to put him on IR.

    • Alan Schechter

      I agree with Frank, not going to happen right away.
