Jets suspend Alosi indefinitely for ordering wall
Westhoff added that other teams may use the wall, and singled out the New England Patriots as one that has.
“I’m not accusing the Patriots of doing something wrong,” Westhoff said. “Maybe they’re doing something smart. Watch the tape, you tell me.”
Tannenbaum said he met with Ray Anderson, the NFL’s executive vice president of football operations, on Wednesday morning and the league supported the Jets‘ decision. Tannenbaum added that the NFL was also looking into the incident.
“All options are on the table,” he said.
League spokesman Greg Aiello said that “Ray Anderson and his staff are reviewing and clarifying sideline protocols with the teams at today’s league meeting in Fort Worth and will follow up with a memo to the clubs this week.”
When asked at the meetings if what the Jets did was improper, Anderson said: “Yes.”
Westhoff said he didn’t know if such a technique was within the rules, but it doesn’t matter to him regardless.
“Does it help you on the sideline? I think it’s ridiculous,” he said. “I don’t do it, nor do I care if anyone else does it.”
Tannenbaum said the team looked at the game film of the play and “it looked to me like it was unusual for them to be standing that way.” The Jets interviewed the players who were standing near Alosi, but will not take any action against them.
A former linebacker at Hofstra, Alosi earned an award for sportsmanship and fair play both on and off the field during his college career.
