As we know, there was a lot to take away from Friday night’s game against the Bengals. They have a lot of time to get better, but one thing became clear. The Jets are lacking depth on the offensive line.

A common theme on Friday night, no matter which quarter we were talking about, was pressure on Jets quarterbacks. Some of it was on the backs not picking up blitzers, and some of it was on the quarterbacks holding the ball too long.

But, a lot was on the offensive line. There was much concern in JetNation about the fact that Mike Tannenbaum didn’t do a lot to address the offensive line this offseason, and it showed Friday night.

But, all is not lost. Here are still some options out there for the Jets, that would come on the cheap, and would make an impact on the depth of this team, and quickly. Here are some examples:(Previous team in parenthesis)

VERNON CAREY(MIAMI)

This is a guy that has been rumored to be a player of interest for the Jets, and with good reason.  At 6’5″, 340, he is a building.  He is only 31, so he’s got some gas left in the tank.  He also played for Miami, so he is familiar with Tony Sparano’s system.  He can compete for time, as he has started every game he has been active for but two since 2005.
