Per Manish Mehta via Twitter, former Patriots OLB/DE Tully Banta-Cain is fully healed from his abdomen injury, and is currently touring Florham Park and meeting with coaches. Banta-Cain is a free agent after being released by the Patriots. He is 31 years old, and won two Superbowls with the Patriots. He was drafted in 2003 in the seventh round.
As OLB is a weak spot of ours, and as Banta-Cain had a career-high 10 sacks in 2009, perhaps Rex is looking at bolstering our clearly weak pass rush. What do you all think? Are the Jets wasting their time looking at the former Patriot, or would this be a good pickup?
