Less for Moore?
The Jets are apparently doing their home work on right guards in the current market, which could mean that Brandon Moore‘s position on the offensive line might not be secure going into next season. It’s early in the game, and free agency doesn’t even begin until the end of this month. Moore earned $1.6 million this year but has escalators in his contract that make him more expensive every year.
The Jets could hit on another guard through free agency, at the NFL combine next weekend or with an internal option like Wayne Hunter (currently a tackle), practice player Stanley Daniels or Rob Turner.
That said, offensive lines can sometimes take two years to really cement and the line this year was brand spanking new. With the quarterback situation looking murky (are you there, Oracle?) how much do the Jets want to tinker with the rest of the offense?
Update : Finally a QB coach, wonder how Brett Favre likes new quarterback coach Matt Cavanaugh? he was the offensive coordinator at Pitt for the last four seasons. Cavanaugh will be assisted by John DeFilippo. Former Army player Ben Kotwica stays as an assistant special teams coach and Brian Smith will be quality control for defense.
(I’ve always wondered what thay title meant, does he check the hits and then put an “Inspected by No. 4” sticker on ’em?).
