2. The NY Jets could sign Ben Jones

One of the bigger surprises of training camp is seeing what is happening with second-round pick Joe Tippmann. Tippmann is not only not competing for the starting center job with Connor McGovern, but he has been strictly working with the third team.

Veteran free agent signing Wes Schweitzer is the backup center at this point and, according to reports, has not played all that well.

Ben Jones has been connected to the Jets for a while now, mainly because of the Jets' new offensive line coach, Keith Carter, who was the Titans' offensive line coach for the past several seasons.

There was a report that the Jets were still interested in Jones after signing McGovern and drafting Tippmann. As mentioned with Risner, if there is a question on this team, it’s the offensive line, and Jones or Risner would help improve that one way or another.

3. The NY Jets could sign Myles Jack

With Kwon Alexander signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jamien Sherwood is expected to take up the third linebacker role. The Jets like what they have seen from Sherwood, but they could still use some veteran depth behind him.

One option that could make sense is Myles Jack. Robert Saleh was Jack’s linebackers coach in Jacksonville during his rookie season, so there is a connection there.

After six very successful seasons in Jacksonville, Jack spent last season with the Steelers, where he started 13 games and racked up over 100 combined tackles. Jack would be a good depth option to provide some insurance to the linebacker room.
