The NY Jets have a new hype man, and his name is Chad Johnson. The NFL legend formerly known as Chad Ochocinco has been singing the organization's praises for quite some time now, especially when it comes to the duo of Zach Wilson and Elijah Moore.
Johnson has been a huge fan of both Wilson and Moore since day one. He's been hyping them up for well over a year now, and his support has continued into this offseason.
Most recently, Johnson was asked on Twitter about what he thinks of the Jets this year. His response (see tweet here) included some colorful language that my bosses probably wouldn't approve of me repeating here, but the gist was that, as long as the Jets have Zach Wilson, they'll be good.
Notably, Johnson referred to the Jets as "we" in the tweet. Sounds like a fan to me.
This isn't the first time that Johnson has expressed his support of Wilson and the Jets. Far from it, in fact.

Prior tweets of Johnson's include him saying "I f---ing" love you guys" in reference to Wilson and Moore, "Zach Wilson/Elijah Moore will be great," and numerous others in which he all but declares his love for the Jets' young offensive studs.
It's gone so far that Johnson took to Twitter on Friday to 'apologize' to Jets fans for being "creepy" about his love of Wilson, Moore, and the entire organization.
A six-time Pro Bowler and Cincinnati Bengals legend, Johnson knows a thing or two about what it takes to be a star in the NFL. He finished his career with over 11,000 receiving yards and established himself as one of the greatest wide receivers of his generation.
The fact that he's such a staunch supporter of Wilson, Moore, and the Jets is equal parts encouraging as it is endearing.
The Jets have been receiving plenty of national praise for their efforts over the last two offseasons, and Johnson is arguably their greatest advocate.
Now, it's all about translating offseason success and near-universal praise into wins.
