Could the Jets express interest in Miles Austin if/when the Dallas Cowboys cut him? Rich Cimini of ESPN NY wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him land back in his home state.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comLast year, with a cap-strapped need to fill up the roster, John Idzik brought in a number of NY metro area players as a method of finding good players for cheap Willie Colon, Antonio Garay. Austin would be a similar type of player to bring in to the Jets, but relying on him for production would be unwise. Austin has had serious durability issues and while signing him to a rather inexpensive deal might make sense, it wouldn’t be the first and last move the Jets would/should make at receiver.
