Besides Dustin Keller, the Jets do not have a legitimate number 2 TE. Jeff Cumberland suffered a torn achilles tendon on September 25, 2011 and missed the remained of the season. Josh Baker is more of an H-Back. Former Australian rugby/basketball player Hayden Smith, Chargers 2010 7th round pick Dedrick Epps and undrafted free agent Brian Linthicum out of Michigan State are all unknown. Thus, Shiancoe to the Jets might make sense.
What do you guys think? Would you be opposed to seeing Gang Green sign Visanthe Shiancoe. Remember, the team currently has 88 players on the roster, leaving room for two more.
UPDATE: Jason La Canfora just tweeted this: “The Jets have been checking on shiancoe, and want 2 mobile TE sets. Shank is solid at LOS“
