Kelvin Beachum, the newest addition to the Ney York Jets offensive line, and the team's hope of a long-term solution to the left tackle position, is one of the smartest players in the NFL. Beachum earned a Bachelor's degree in economics, a Master's degree in organizational dynamics, and is also a big history buff.

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.
