Jets RB Matt Forte responded to former Jets WR Brandon Marshall's comments that he requested his release earlier this offseason because the team 'didn't have a chance' to compete this season.
"It doesn't matter," Forte said about Marshall's comments, according to the NY Daily News. "He's not here. He hasn't been here the whole offseason or whatever, so he doesn't know what chance we have or anyone has. So that's Brandon speaking on Brandon. That's about all I have to say on that."
Marshall, who signed a two-year deal with the Giants after being released by the Jets, was part of a toxic Jets clubhouse last season, and Forte said the clubhouse is improved heading into this season.
"It's a lot of young guys, but a lot more tight-knit group where everybody respects everybody as a man but also as an athlete and a competitor," Forte said. "We're going out there to compete against each other, but also to make each other better. So I think it's a different kind of vibe, feel, but in a good way."
