When it came to the offensive line, I decided to call in our resident big man, Mike Nolan, to finish our New York Jets roster preview. Take it away…

I decided to borrow an article format that I saw Terry Blount use about the Seahawks on ESPN.com. Since the Jets were consistently ranked in the bottom 10 of 2013 NFL Offensive Lines, I thought it would be a good format to see if we should expect them to improve at each position in 2014.

Scouting the Jets Free Agent Signings: Breno Giacomini

Mike Nolan breaks down the tape on New York Jets right tackle Breno Giacomini

When the Jets couldn’t come to terms with Howard, they quickly went to their back up plan and signed former Seahawks right tackle Breno Giacomini. Let’s take a look at what Giacomini will bring to the Jets offensive line.
