Miller good fit for the Jets

The Tennessee Titans cut some good players to clear up their cap nightmare.<p>

Four of those players could interest the Jets.

It's becoming apparent that Jets right tackle Kareem McKenzie will be playing elsewhere next year. He and the Jets aren't close on a new contract.

With that being the case, the Jets will likely be on the market for a veteran tackle, and the Titans release of Fred Miller had to pique their interest.

The nine-year veteran is a solid right tackle who has started for both the St. Louis Rams and Tennessee Titans. The 6-7, 330-pound Baylor prospect would be a good fit for the Jets because he is familiar with the offense of the team's new coordinator - Mike Heimerdinger, who spent the last five years with the Titans.

Another former Titan, who knows the offense, who could interest the Jets is wideout Derrick Mason, coming off a 96-catch season in 2004.

''There are some teams out there looking for a good wide receiver and I think I have a good four, five years left in me,'' said Mason. ''I am excited to see where the market is. I have spent eight great years here and they got eight great years out of me.''

The Jets also need a shutdown cornerback, and Samari Rolle has been just that for the Titans. If the Jets signed him, he would instantly be their best cornerback.

Kicker Joe Nedney, a former Jet, could be a good candidate to compete with Doug Brien.
