2. The NY Jets should avoid Taylor Lewan

Taylor Lewan is one of the best tackles in football when healthy, but he’s missed a lot of football over the past few seasons, which makes him a significant risk.

He would clearly improve the Jets' offensive line, which is something they really need help with, but I’m not sure if you want to invest a lot of money into someone who may only play a few games.

The Jets have had offensive line issues over the past few years, specifically with Mekhi Becton, who many hoped would be their starting left tackle for a decade, but he hasn’t been able to stay healthy.

Injuries are tough to predict, so it’s possible that Lewan can stay healthy all year, but knee issues don’t seem to get better with age, especially if you’re an offensive lineman. He's played less than six games in two of the last three seasons and hasn't played a full 16/17-game season since 2017.

If healthy, Lewan can be a difference-maker and someone who will make the Jets running backs and quarterback very happy, but health is the biggest question mark.

I think this could turn into a disastrous contract if New York took a chance on Lewan, as much as his infectious personality would be very welcomed in the Big Apple.
