Over the last few seasons, the New York Jets have continued to regress, especially on offense, becoming a shell of the team that made two consecutive appearances in the AFC Championship Game.
They entered free agency knowing they had to upgrade that side of the ball.
Earlier in the day, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Jets were close to adding an offensive lineman in right tackle Breno Giacomini.

Giacomini was originally drafted with the 150th overall pick in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Grene Bay Packers. He joined the Seattle Seahawks in 2010 and played in 15 games and made eight starts in 2011. He became a full time starter in 2012 and started all 16 games.
He again started in 2013, but missed seven games because of a knee injury.
