4. The NY Jets sign OG/C Graham Glasgow

The Jets are going to be very active in the interior offensive line market this offseason as they search for as many as two new starters. I'm expecting two moves here — one more high-profile addition (their big signing of the offseason) and one lower-tier one.

This is the low-tier signing. Graham Glasgow is a quality starting guard who offers center versatility and should be available for a reasonable price tag. The Jets showed interest in Glasgow as a center a few years back before ultimately signing Connor McGovern.

Glasgow started 15 games for the Detroit Lions last season, playing all three interior offensive line positions. His 74.9 Pro Football Focus grade actually ranked eighth among all guards in football.

Glasgow turns 32 years old in July and will likely be available for somewhere around $7-8 million a year, making him an affordable second-tier option. He also has ties to Nathaniel Hackett from their time together in Denver.

*NOTE: Glasgow signed a 3-year, $20 million contract to remain with the Detroit Lions on Monday morning

3. The NY Jets sign OG Robert Hunt

This is the Jets' big free-agent signing. This year's tackle class in free agency may be thin, but the guard class is one of the deepest in recent memory. There's no excuse for the Jets not to come away with one of the top free-agent guards on the market.

Robert Hunt comes from a similar zone-based blocking scheme in Miami, where he helped lead one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL. At just 27 years old, Hunt is a signing for both the present and the future.

The former second-round pick has experience playing tackle but has really thrived as a guard in the NFL. His 76.4 Pro Football Focus grade in 2023 ranked sixth among all qualified guards.

Hunt won't come cheap, with some projections reaching as much as $17-18 million per season, but if the Jets are going to make a splash signing, this feels like one of the most likely options.
