The veteran quarterback was told not to speak to reporters after the game.
An NFL team prevented its probable starting quarterback from talking to reporters after a preseason game.
Veteran QB Josh McCown was set to talk to the press following the Jets' loss to the Lions on Saturday night. The 38-year-old QB didn't play in the contest, but he wanted to speak to reporters anyway.
New York's PR team said no, though.
The Jets, unsurprisingly, are getting criticized for this. Maybe that was the plan, though, since it's taking away from what happened on the field...
