Late Monday afternoon, we find out that the Jets have traded for Jeff Otah from the Panthers. Better yet, they made the trade and all they gave up was a conditional 7th round draft pick. Talk about a low risk move.
Jeff Otah is a talented football player. He is a former first round draft pick,spent his first two years in the league as a starting tackle. Pretty good deal for a seventh round pick.
His last two years, however, are what made him expendable. Due to injury, he only played 4 games over the last two years.
The point? Mike Tannenbaum didn’t leave us hanging out to dry, Jets fans. He traded for a former first round pick at tackle. And gave up nothing.
Because he truly is the Tanny that never sleeps.
