Elijah Moore Told Jets Former OC To “Go f*** yourself”

Written by Tony Ghaul

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore shocked teammates and coaches when ripped into now-former offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur at practice ahead of the Jets Week 9 game against the Denver Broncos. Reportedly, the wide receiver told the OC to “go f*** yourself” and “you suck,” as per The Athletic’s Zack Rosenblatt.

Moore was sent home after this incident and got tagged as inactive against the Broncos. This is the first time the exact nature of what was said has been reported.

Moore had been frustrated with Jets offense and with QB Zach Wilson. He was targeted once in the passing game over a three-game stretch from Weeks 6-9. Moore finished with 37 catches for 446 yards and one touchdown this season. Those numbers were well below his expectations.

Mike LaFleur and the Jets mutually agreed to part ways when the season ended.
