New York Jets Free Agent Targets – Offensive Line

Cole Patterson on the top free agent targets for the New York Jets on the offensive line…

As the new league year looms, the Jets are positioned to make a splash in free agency. With twenty-three unrestricted free agents on expiring contracts and ~$100,000,000 in cap space, the team has a lot of holes to fill and a lot of money to make it happen. This is old news. As we’ve seen in years past, cash doesn’t fill holes, players do. It is up to Mike Maccagnan and his staff to properly utilize their plentiful resources and stock the roster with talent. This group’s success in free agency has been middling at best. That being said, there is an abundance of talent available in the areas of the Jets’ biggest needs. We will be taking a look at these areas of need over the next few weeks and the players available at those positions. Today: the offensive line.
