The new Jets tight ends are talking "dirty" and they believe they will have opposing defenses talking to themselves.

C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conkin were signed to fill an important role in the Jets’ offense and help young quarterback Zach Wilson. Uzomah’s deal was done first. When he heard Conklin was joining him, Uzomah immediately reached out to Conklin with a message.

"I got the news, and I was like, 'I need his number,'" Uzomah said.
