Free agent guard Stefen Wisniewski will visit with the Jets on Monday, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press tweets. The Vikings also reached out about the veteran last week after learning that Nick Easton was New Orleans-bound, Tomasson adds.
Wisniewski spent the last three seasons with the Eagles, who declined to go for a fourth when they turned down his option last week. The soon-to-be 30-year-old has been an on and off starter at left guard for Philly with six starts in 2016, eleven in 2017, and seven this past season. He entered the 2018 season as the starter at left guard, but was later benched for Isaac Seumalo. Seumalo inked an extension recently, while Wisniewski was asked to pack his bags.
Wisniewski could be an intriguing pickup for the Jets, who are looking for ways to make holes for new star running back Le’Veon Bell. He should also hold appeal for the Vikings and others thanks to his versatility. The 6’3″, 305-pound lineman offers experience at both guard and center, so he can be a solid super-sub on the interior line.
