According to Pro Football Weekly, the Panthers are running out of patience with RT Jeff Otah (knee).
Otah is owed $2.35 million in the final year of his rookie contract, and is coming off knee surgeries in the past two seasons. Per PFW's Dan Parr, there are "sources inside the organization" that aren't overly optimistic about his chances of returning to full health. Otah is expected to report for training camp, and will compete with Byron Bell for the starting right tackle job.

At least they brought in someone that could realistically compete and be a serviceable backup.

Here is the press release from the NY Jets:


Jets Acquire T Jeff Otah from Panthers


July 23, 2012 – The New York Jets have acquired T Jeff Otah in a trade with the Carolina Panthers for an undisclosed conditional draft choice. The announcement was made by General Manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Otah (T/6-6/340/Pittsburgh/New Castle, DE) initially entered the NFL as a first-round selection (19th overall) of the Panthers in 2008. In four seasons with Carolina, Otah started all 29 games that he played. Last season, he started four of the first five games before he was inactive at Atlanta (10/16/11) and placed on injured reserve with a knee injury (10/19/11). In his first two seasons, Otah started 25 of a possible 32 games at right tackle, helping the Panthers establish team-highs in rushing yards both seasons. In 2009, he blocked for running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart as the pair became the first set of teammates in NFL history to each rush for more than 1,100 yards in the same season.

No sh*t. Certainly did not see that coming. Tough not to be happy about it considering it's a conditional pick. Worst case scenario it's a young player with a lot of upside (although obviously some health issues). If nothing else, at least the Jets are clearly putting some serious effort into bringing some real competition at OT this offseason. Whether it works out remains to be seen, but you've got to think they're helping their odds.

By day he's the (not so) mild-mannered Bleedin Green, but by night...

Yo I know nothing about this guy except that he was supposed to be a road grader coming out. Anyone know anything about his injury and/or actual ability to play right tackle?

Also, does this mean they killed or fired the guy who was swearing that Wayne Hunter would only be replaced over his dead body?

This has the potential to be a huge move. If healthy, we have a young run blocking RT to add to our young core of O-Lineman. Anything that credibly makes Wayne Hunter our 6th lineman is good in my book.

Good move bring in someone that can upgrade the offensive line and is young. Hunter goes back to useful backup. That is the ideal scenerio have to see what actually happens
