Why the Ty Law visit is perplexing.

On Wednesday, the Jets hosted free agent cornerback Ty Law. One word would best describe this turn-of-events - shocking.

Why is it "shocking?"

Because, according to an NFL source, the organization felt that Law was a bad influence on some of the young players in 2005, his one season as a Jet.

The NFL source told us that the Jets felt that one particular player Law had a negative impact on was cornerback Justin Miller, who was a rookie at the time.

The Jets coach at the time, Herman Edwards, allowed Law to have his own set of rules, and this can be very bad in a team sport.

So for the Jets to bring him in for a visit, after what they went through with Law in 2005 (though he did have 10 interceptions), is very surprising.
