Jets host high-profile free agent on Tuesday

The Jets will be visited by a marquis free agent on Tuesday.

Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Jon Runyan will be in Hempstead on Tuesday to visit the Jets.

This is his first free agent visit. The 6-7 Runyan said he wouldn't visit any team until he received a contract offer.

So either the Jets have made an offer, or Runyan doesn't mind making the two hour trip from Philadelphia to New York sans an offer.

Runyan, 32, would come in as the Jets right tackle if he signs, so the team will likely still be in the market for a left tackle.
