Stephen Peterman to Visit New York Jets

USA TODAY Sports

The former Lion will visit the Jets.

Per Manish Mehta, Stephen Peterman, a guard formerly of the Detroit Lions, will visit the New York Jets tomorrow. Peterman started every game at guard for the Lions for the past three years. He is thirty-one years old, and was originally a third round draft selection by the Dallas Cowboys. Peterman is a right guard, and signing him would likely place Willie Colon at left guard to fill out the offensive line.

Peterman was primarily cut from the Lions because of his salary, however he led the league among guards with thirty-six quarterback hurries in 2012. It's important to note that his 2012 season was a down year for him, and that he's, generally speaking, a decent starter. I cannot imagine a scenario in which Peterman would cost much more, if at all, than the veteran's minimum, so he would be a decent signing. It would certainly be a continuation of General Manager John Idzik's theme thus far of signing cheap veteran free agents. Peterman would not be a knock out of the park, but he could be a cheap signing to hold the fort until a draft pick is ready and able to take over. My prediction is that he clears his physical and is signed to a three-year, $2.75 million contract.
