Buzz: Geoff Schwartz unlikely to land with Jets?

The Jets might have shown some interest in Chiefs free agent guard Geoff Schwartz, but it sounds as of they aren’t one of the top two teams in the bidding according to NFL Media’s Mike Silver.

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

The Jets have been rumored to have been interested in Schwartz, but unless they jump back into the bidding it seems like they might be falling behind.  Tangentially, the Jets were also tied to Jon Asamoah, the guy that was replaced by Schwartz last year.  Word yesterday was that Asamoah was going to wind up in Atlanta.  There are other players, but those two are viewed as two of the best.

Pursuit of other players at other positions like receiver, safety and corner might leave the Jets out of the mix on the top few guards in this class, but guards can come cheap.  While the impact of an excellent guard is easy to notice, Willie Colon could represent a solid fallback for the Jets and their second year players.

OK,  it's probably time for Austin Howard to sign his deal with the Jets.   I don't want to hear you have a better offer and I definitely don't want to hear it's from the Dolphins.

Colon is a solid fallback option.......if healthy.  That's a very big risk though.

I guess if there's any position to have up in the air, it's guard. Making me nervous though.


On that note, WTF, Austin Howard. Can we please lock that down?

He is not that good.  I would not spend on him.  Colon is a better player imo.

Solid move TE can work the seam, good hands,  Solid blocker, not overpowering.  A little long in the tooth with a history of injuries.  If healthy a solid player.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan  It's 4:35pm here.  The free agency period has been underwhelming at best so far.

He just played 16 games.  I say bring back he and Vlad along with all the young guys and see what shakes out inside.

He wants to get paid.  So we will wait and get it done if he wants to take the price we have given him.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan @WilkershakesYeah, I can walk back the "very", but he does carry more risk than the other FA guards.  Torn bicep and injury history.  I still like him as a late offseason signing if all's right with him.  Still a risk.

@harold  I would like the Colon/Vlad/young guys competition in camp. Although Vlad's development has been painfully slow he is improving every year.

@harold He did tear his bicep.  He also has an injury history.  It didn't show up until the end of the season, but still a risk.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan @harold  Really would want to see Jets bring in a legit starting FA guard like Schwartz or Asamoah, and also bring back Colon and have him and Winters compete.  Winters was awful most of the season, we can't have that again if we're going to improve on offense.

I agree, I just think if we bring back Vlad and let the young guys compete.  If a player is Colon or someone who is better than Colon, that is pretty good for us both on the field and financially
