Rich Cimini reports defensive lineman Kendall Langford worked out for the Jets this week.
Langford is a veteran who has played with four NFL teams. Initially a third round pick of the Dolphins in 2008, he spent four years with Miami. He then spent three years with the Rams followed by two years with the Colts. Langford was released by Indianapolis in August and picked up by the Saints briefly.
A workout doesn’t necessarily mean much. It is likely due diligence. The Jets could potentially be in the market for defensive line help at some point if Muhammad Wilkerson’s injury forces him to the sideline or something else makes them pursue depth.
The team did just move a defensive lineman, Lawrence Thomas, to the offensive side of the ball so that also could have conceivably created an opening.
Langford has 22.5 sacks to this point in an NFL career spanning back to 2008.
