    Jets finally make moves in free agency

    posted by: Site Admin | 0 comments | Jets Free Agent Signings

    Long gone are the days of splashy free agent moves that the Jets were known for under Rex Ryan and Eric Mangini. The Gang Green made a couple of low profile free agent signings yesterday, hopefully filling up the glaring holes at the tackle and kicker positions. LT Kelvin Beachum, formerly of the Jaguars and Steelers, was graded as the 63rd best tackle out of 78 last year by ProFootballFocus. PK Chandler Catanzaro was a pretty good kicker in his first three years with the Cardinals. His production, however, took a steep dive last season when he missed 7 field goal attempts and 4 extra points.

    Jets Re-sign Long Snapper Purdum, Barnes Next?

    The New York Jets re-signed LS Tanner Purdum, who was a non-tendered restricted free agent, to a 2-year contract. Purdum has been a steady long snapper since 2010. The Jets opted not to place the low tender ($1.32 million) on him with the hope of re-signing him at a lower price. Purdum will be the second long snapper on the Jets roster heading into training camp. LS Travis Tripucka, a Mountain Lakes High grad and former St. Louis Rams practice squad member, is also currently on the roster.
