The Portuguese national team is training this week at the Jets’ practice facility before they head down to Brazil, and their presence there led to the wonderfully weird juxtaposition of elite Portuguese soccer players sharing a field with Rex Ryan.


Futbol meets football- Trying to teach @cristiano how to throw a football. Good Luck in Brazil! #JetLife

It also led to this excellent moment when Jets receiver David Nelson taught Cristiano Ronaldo how to throw an American football.


Question: If Nelson hypothetically tackled Ronaldo and injured him, is he a pariah in this country…or a national hero? He’s a pariah, right? We as a country wouldn’t condone the intentional injuring of a member of an opposing nation. It would be too unsporting, too gross.
