Recently acquired from Carolina OT Jeff Otah failed his physical, which essentially nullified the trade with the Carolina Panthers. Per terms of the trade, Otah needed to pass a physical within seven days of reporting to the team last week. He failed his first physical upon arrival, but was optimistic on Monday that he would pass it.
The New York Jets traded their conditional draft pick for OT Jeff Otah of the Carolina Panthers. After showing lots of promise at right tackle in his first two seasons, Otah has dealt with a series of injuries and has appeared in only four games the last two years.
