The Jets are down a pair of offensive tackles, and the team is naturally in the market for some reinforcement. Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus writes that the Jets have recently been looking around for depth at offensive tackle, with one source describing the team as “desperate for help.”
The team lost their starting right tackle when Mekhi Becton went down with a knee injury. The Jets later inked Duane Brown to a two-year, $20MM deal to play LT, with George Fant sliding over to RT. Brown later injured his shoulder and landed on injured reserve, knocking him out for at least the first four games of the season. Even backup Conor McDermott was inactive during Week 1 while he nursed an ankle injury.
