The first is not a free agent, but he may be available for a reasonable trade.

Yes, Anthony Fasano. Take a look at this article by clicking here, about the reducing role of Fasano in Miami’s offense. This new up-tempo offense under Joe Philbin might just make Fasano the odd man out.

If that is the case, Mike Tannenbaum should make a phone call to Jeff Ireland in Miami.

First of all, Anthony Fasano is well versed in the Tony Sparano offense. Bringing in someone that is familiar with the new coach can’t be a bad idea. Second of all, he has an excellent reputation as a run blocker, which is a positive in the ground and pound. As we said before, the Jets don’t have a really proven run blocker at tight end, and Fasano could be the guy.

Finally, he is a weapon as a pass catcher as well. He isn’t Dustin Keller, but he can’t be discounted either, as he has recorded over 30 receptions per season over the last four.

The Jets should make inquiries.
