In recent days and weeks there has been some speculation regarding the Jets and the possibility of exercising their option on left tackle Ryan Clady.

Now, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter, the team will do no such thing.

Not extending Clady isn’t the end of the world, but it removes a veteran from the equation in trying to fill what is argualby Gang Green’s second most pressing need with quarterback topping the list (as usual).

Clady will have spent just one season in Green and White and missed roughly half of that when he was placed on injured reserved after being pulled from his final game as a Jet in week 9.

Getting ready for FA to start. 

Or if they do reach for a LT in this draft like Ramczyk.

It was a good logical move. Just didn't pan out. Happens all the time. No penalization for that.

I support this in concept, but I would feel better if they signed Ijalana.  

How is he feeling after Winters signed his contract?  it may have been smarter to sign Ijalana first.

Or maybe they just throw short money at Whitworth.

They cannot develop a QB without an LT, but that did not mean overpay Clady.  

I think Clady and his agent are definitely looking to squeeze the Jets and whomever else.  Maybe they re-sign him later if he is healthy.

Jets could be nearing a deal with cb K'Waun Williams, he was scheduled to meet with Jets today.

Also too, Kelvin Beachem might be let go by the Jags, Jets were interested in him last year.

One down. Lets hope more deadwood follows.

Sure would be nice to have an extra 12 million in cap space to help sign a LT FA stud.

this doesn't mean he won't be re-signed but at less money.  it could mean they have a deal ready with iajalana or they feel they can get their guy in the draft.  i don't think any of the mock drafts have a tackle going in the top 6 so maybe their plan is to move down a couple of places.

Won't be stunned to see him back later on in the FA  season.  Jets probably offered him Vets min, with a bonus sweetner.  Clady probably wants to go out and see if he's worth more then that.

He is only good for a few games. Good move. Let another team pay him.

Let the games begin. Can't wait until we start cutting the dead weight and bringing in the new FA crop.

Jaguars are not picking up LT Kelvin Beachum's option, sources say. So like Ryan Clady, he's headed to the free-agent market.

 

Beachum is only 27 years old.   I wonder if the jets consider investing in him as the LT for the next few years.

As info and many factors can play into this  

 

Beachum finished his first season with the Jaguars starting in 15 games and was considered a disappointment after surrendering 49 quarterback pressures.
