    Instagram post that he hopes tight end Rob Gronkowski returns to add to his career touchdown catch total and Brady has some company in an unlikely place when it comes to wanting to see Gronk play again.Jets safety Jamal Adams was often tasked with covering Gronkowski when the two AFC East teams met over the last two seasons and he was asked about the tight end’s retirement on Thursday night. Adams said he believes Gronkowski will play football again and declared himself hopeful that they’ll have future meetings on the field.“I was sad Womens Marcus Maye Jersey ,” Adams said, via the . “I was upset because going against him is what I look forward to. I like going against the best, and obviously, he was the best. I hope he comes back. I know he will. I don’t believe it yet.”Gronkowski had his mind on other pursuits last weekend and has given no indication that he’s planning to get back on the field , although that hasn’t had any negative effect on wishful thinking about a return. It’s been just over a year since the New York Jets lost 31-12 to the Jacksonville Jaguars last September and several members of the Jets remember the experience quite vividly because of how it ended.According to Rich Cimini of, the Jets remain annoyed by the Jaguars adding a late offensive touchdown and a two-point conversion inside the final two minutes despite having a commanding leads over the Jets in their Week 4 meeting last year.“Simply put, it was disrespectful as hell,” linebacker Brandon Copeland said.With a 25-12 lead Brandon Copeland Jersey , the Jaguars took over control of the ball with 4:22 remaining.

Yeldon then carried once more on fourth-and-goal to score the touchdown that angered the Jets most. Jacksonville then attempted a two-point conversion with Bortles sailing a ball over Westbrook’s head to leave the final score at 31-12.“I thought it was pretty disrespectful,” defensive lineman Leonard Williams said. “The game was already won. There was only a minute-and-a-half left to go. Not only did they keep running the ball to try to score again, they also went for two points Womens Chris Herndon Jersey , which was even more over the top.”Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said afterward that he wasn’t trying to send a message to the Jets and that he wished someone had told him to scrap the two-point conversion decision.The Jets could have stopped those attempts to score and they can flip the script this weekend when the two teams meet again in Jacksonville.
