What a shock, he’s heading back to the NRL.

Did he really think he was going to make the NFL? If he did, he’s delusional

can’t bag him for trying…

I thought he might make it as a punt returner did he want to be a running back?

Serious? Delusional?
Better to never tried & failed than not have a crack at all

@innsaneink
Better a has been than a never was.

Disappointed he did not stick to it …you have to be willing to give it 2 or 3 yrs . I watch a lot of NFL and I think he could of given it a real go , can not expect to be a blow in and be taken seriously . One day a young kid will give it a real shot !

Depends what your definition of making it is. He was always going to be back anyway.

He will be an excellent pick up for whichever NRL side gets him

Not for a $1mill.

As someone who is pretty into the NFL i really dont rate the Jets coach. Id be bailing too. The Jets are doing nothing more than lurking from one wrong decision to another. Its trash

That said im disappointed in him. I thought he had more upside than Hayne

Let’s make a swap with the NY Jets.
Ryan Matterson for Valentine Holmes.

@Snake Absolutely, he came close to the 53 man roster this season so he would have had a real shot if he stuck around. Big gamble for a young bloke to turn down a 1000% pay rise however…

Imagine if a nfl player tried to comr to league.

That would be interesting

Firstly you couldnt pay them enough but most of the Line Backers , Safeties etc would be very dominant.

Guys like Luke Kuechley would be immortals

@TheDaBoss Manfred Moore played a few games for the Jets back in the 70’s
