Elijah Moore, a frustrated Jets wide receiver, has requested a trade

FLORHAM PARK, New Jersey – Elijah Moore, a wide receiver with the New York Jets, sought a trade on Thursday, a person familiar with the issue revealed to ESPN

Moore's request, originally reported by NFL Network, came on a day when the team sent him home before practice for an "individual day." 

Coach Robert Saleh told reporters on the field that Moore was excused due to family problems.

Moore's absence, according to sources, was directly tied to his disgust with the usage, with one source indicating he conveyed his anger to members of the group.

 It became so bad that Saleh and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur decided Moore should leave the facility for a day to let his emotions — and theirs — calm

Moore did not respond to requests for comment on Wednesday. He issued two mysterious tweets on Thursday, minutes before the Jets entered the field for practice. 

"Love my colleagues!" stated the first tweet. "God, I need advice," wrote a second tweet, which has since been removed

Moore was briefed on the situation by both Saleh and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur.

The Jets (4-2) have won three straight games and are off to their best start since 2015. 

They are 17th in total yards and 10th in scoring, both of which are significant improvements over previous season.

Moore's close buddy, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver AJ Brown, responded with a now-deleted tweet.

Brown tweeted, along with a photo of herself and Moore, "One of the most powerful individuals I know. 

Tough times last, but tough people do. We smile in the face of hardship because we know God is battling for us. We'll talk again shortly."
