Yes, they did draft Robert T Griffin out of Baylor, but he is more of a guard than tackle. They also acquired veteran tackle Stephon Heyer. He has some starting experience and will have his hat in the ring, but he has only started a full year once (2009), and has been a backup tackle for most of the balance of his career.

Austin Howard is another tackle in camp, and a lot of people think he could win the job. Many are high on him, including our good buddy Jake Steinberg(@Steiny31). He is still an unknown, though. We don’t know what he has got until he shows us.

A lot of Jets fans, frankly, were not thrilled with the tackle situation going into training camp.

But that didn’t stop Mike Tannenbaum.

Fast forward to this past Monday, and a report comes out that they are interested in Vernon Carey. 30 years old, and a career starting tackle. I know I was excited to read that.

Turn the page and we will talk about the move that actually was made.
