McChesney was signed by the Jets a couple of years ago as a defensive tackle, but was moved to guard last year on the practice squad. He was sent to NFL Europa for some game experience and made great progress before getting hurt, perhaps with a high ankle sprain.
The 6-4, 300 pound McChesney was a candidate to compete for the left guard job if disgruntled Pete Kendall is traded or waived. McChesney is a barroom brawler type of the field, and could bring some much-needed nastiness to the Jets offensive line.
Missant has been in the last two camps. Mike Tannenbaum really likes him, and he was one of the final cuts the last two summers. Not only can he play center and guard, he's a good long-snapper. He and McChesney were teammates on the Frankfurt Galaxy this past season.
