Jets Meet With DL Frostee Rucker

The Jets recently hosted defensive lineman Frostee Rucker on a free agent visit, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets. Rucker would be a logical fit for the Jets since he played under Todd Bowles in Arizona. 

Rucker, 35 in September, profiles as a potential low-cost addition for Gang Green. Last year, he re-upped with the Cardinals on a one-year deal worth less than $1.1MM.

Earlier this month, Bowles signed another former Cardinals pupil in linebacker Kevin Minter. Minter is one of several new linebackers in New York – along with Avery Williamson, Kevin Pierre-Louis, Brandon Copeland, Neville Hewitt, and Micah Awe – but the Jets have yet to do much along the defensive line. Rucker, who spent time on the interior and at defensive end last year, could serve as a versatile backup in the Jets’ 3-4 scheme.

In other Jets news, longtime center Nick Mangold announced his retirement on Tuesday.

    Is there anybody that doesn’t think an article about Frostee is cool?

        Some years ago there was a thoroughbred owner in NY who liked to mess with the track announcers by giving his horses tricky names like Cunning Stunts.

    Pure depth pick up. His name will be more distinguished than his play.

    Wendy’s Frosty was coined in 1969, so… quite possible he was named after it. “Let me educate you, Black people are notorious for picking thing that they saw one day, and say ‘that’s my babys name’ his mother was reading the paper and eating some cereal…” – Kevin Hart on O’Shea Jackson aka Ice Cube.
