Jets Skip Last Day Of OTAs To Play Paintball Because They Can Totally Afford To Do That

by Jared

Instead of practicing on their last of organized team activities, or OTAs, the New York Jets decided to take a stab at some team bonding by having a voluntary paintball day. Tweets, Vines, and Instagram pictures from players made their way around this morning, although many were later deleted.

This seems like the perfect event for a team full of players that are more than used to taking shots at each other. Just two weeks ago, an anonymous player said that “80 to 90 percent” of the team doesn’t want Mark Sanchez as their quarterback. Last season, the Jets were plagued by anonymous player stories seemingly every other week. What better way to work out issues like that than by shooting each other with gelatin shells filled with water soluble dye?

If you know anything about Nick Mangold, the New York Jets’ All-Pro center, you might not be surprised to hear that he showed up in full army fatigues for the bonding event, as you can see below. He looks like an absolute boss as always, but I’m not sure that the outfit is going to do much to hide the 6’4″, 307-pound center.
This is typical New York Jets. Pass on getting better at football to steal the back page of some New York paper. This team is coming off a 6-10 season and have roughly 13 quarterbacks on the roster. If Super Bowls were won on the paintball field then the New York Jets would be early favorites.
