RB Matt Forte says the Jets aren't tanking the season, despite the fact that they've cut the majority of their veteran players this offseason.
"It's a good thing we don't operate off of what the fans think and what everybody on the outside thinks," Forte said, according to The Record. "What we think as a team, that's what's going to happen. And none of us on the team think that we're going to tank. So all I have to say about that is: Bring it."
The Jets, who went 5-11 last season, have cut Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, David Harris, Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, Nick Folk, and Breno Giacomini since the season ended. They also declined their option on Ryan Clady.
