How is it nonsensical to plainly state the facts that he grew up here as a Jets fan and has very deep ties to the area? He has a community center named after him here and a lake as well FFS.

His legacy would probably be best served by returning home to play in front of all of his friends and family, and he will perhaps very soon have the opportunity to do exactly that.
