There was a published report that they would be interested in signing Raider guard Mo Collins when Randy Thomas leaves, but don't look for that to happen. They might add a free agent guard later in the free agent process, but they will not spend big money. Plus Collins has weight issues.
The Jets intend on drafting a couple of offensive lineman in the draft. It's not out of the question that they could pick an offensive guard in the first round with starting potential . . .
It's no secret the Jets will pick a linebacker high in the draft. At the combine they met with several of the top prospects. They desperately need to improve their speed at the position.
"We met with some linebackers at the combine who can run and who are athletic," said Herm Edwards.
Georgia's Boss Bailey, who is 6-3, 230 pounds with 4.5 speed would be a nice addition.
But even if the Jets pick a linebacker in the first round, expect their starting linebacker corps to come back in tact if Mo Lewis agrees to a pay cut. But the Jets need to find an heir apparent to Lewis, and a player like Bailey would be perfect . . .
Punter Matt Turk did struggle last year, but expect him to be the team's punter this year. The new field at the Meadowlands should help him. The slippery turf prayed on his mind.
"Matt was disappointed in how he kicked," said Bradway. "He is our punter. I would expect him to be better (next season)." . . .
Bradway and Mike Azzurelli, the agent for Vinny Testaverde, met at the combine, and are now on the same page. They had some disputes in the newspapers recently about Testaverde's future.
"Vinny is happy here," said Bradway. "I talked to Mike in Indy and we kissed an made up."
