Jets Interested In Corey Linsley, Joe Thuney

The Jets missed out on Kevin Zeitler and they won’t have an opportunity to speak with Andrew Norwell. However, they have two other interior linemen on their list. The Jets are expected to pursue center Corey Linsley and guard Joe Thuney, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com (Twitter link). 

The Jets were said to be keenly interested in Thuney last week with plans to call him bright and early on Monday morning. The Patriots declined to tag him again, making him an unfettered free agent. A second-team All-Pro in 2019 and a key part of the Patriots’ most recent Super Bowl wins, Thuney is regarded as one of the better guards in the NFL.

Linsley, meanwhile, was a First-Team All-Pro for his work with the Packers last season. It’s expected that he’ll approach or best Ryan Kelly‘s $12.4MM per-year average, so either player would be mighty costly for the Jets. Still, the offensive line is a long-standing need for Gang Green, so they’re willing to spend the big bucks.

    Am I the only one that doesn’t know what an “unfettered free agent” is?

    • I give no fox

      Meaning no compensation required to sign, no transition or franchise tag

    Jets need to sign both. That line is currently awful and those two would certainly help improve the running game and most likely the passing game by offering more time and less pressure.

      Do that and draft a RT with the second rounder and even Frank Gore could rush for 4.5 per

    Block for Rodgers or block for a terrible team that is consistently bad and going nowhere? Hmmmmm
