Jets Clear On Top Free Agent Signing Priority
The New York Jets have a list of free agents that include tight end Jeff Cumberland and guard Willie Colon.
The top priority for the Jets is right tackle Austin Howard. At just 26 years old, Howard has been a stable and strong part of the Jets o-line for two years.
Free agency begins next week and all signs point to the Jets having Howard wrapped up before the March 11th free agency date.
Jets GM John Idzik has yet to sign a player to a healthy deal and reports indicate Howard will be the first, projected to make over $5 million a year in a long-term deal.
