New York Jets Beat Writer Loses Bet That Team Wouldn't Use All 12 Draft Picks

Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIDecember 22, 2016

Never bet on the New York Jets to do something. You'll probably lose.

The Jets had nine draft picks on Saturday, but Manish Mehta from the New York Daily News was skeptical that the team would actually use all of them, tweeting out that he'd hitchhike home if they actually used all nine.

Unfortunately for Mehta, the Jets did in fact use all nine of their picks, and other fellow writers decided to give him a hard time.

Update: Saturday, May 10, 8:45 p.m. ET

Mehta was handed a gift on his way out of the Draft for his long road home.

---End of update---

We're not sure if the Mehta will actually follow through with this bet, but we're really hoping that he does.
