CORTLAND, N.Y. – New York Jets general manager John Idzik says the final call on the team's starting quarterback this season will be a "collective effort," adding that he'll have "a pretty big role."
Idzik addressed the media after practice Saturday for the first time since minicamp last month, tackling several issues surrounding training camp. With Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith competing for the quarterback job, Idzik says not one person in the organization will have veto power over any decision — including coach Rex Ryan.
Idzik repeatedly said all decisions will be "collaborative," and that he and Ryan will speak "freely" about the roster.
The GM had no updates on running back Mike Goodson, on the reserve-did not report list, or first-round pick Dee Milliner, who is holding out.
