Tony Richardson spelled ‘Jets’ wrong while announcing their pick at the NFL draft

Mistakes happen, but oof.

Former Jets fullback Tony Richardson was tasked with announcing the Jets pick in the third round.

Richardson wanted to put a little spin and spice on his announcement of the pick by doing Jets fans’ signature chant of “J-E-T-S, JETS JETS JETS,” except there was one problem.

He spelled Jets wrong, spelling it “J-E-T-E.”

To be fair, people stumble over their words all the time, and he was on a big stage in front of a raucous crowd. The mind get mixed up and we all make mistakes. But this seems particularly bad.

Spelling is hard.
