Jets Free Agency News and Rumors: Hightower Visiting; Beachum, Catanzaro, Purdum Signed

NFL: Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Things have begun to heat up a bit for the Jets in this offseason, and our podcast covers some of the key developments for this team since Friday.

Free agent linebacker Dont’a Hightower is visiting from the Patriots. Can the Jets get him? I think most would agree they should make a big effort. This team lacks blue chip talent.

The Jets were also active on Friday adding to their special teams by signing a new kicker and bringing back their old long snapper. The biggest development from Friday was signing a new left tackle, though.

I think the signing of tackle Kelvin Beachum is a move that could pay off but one that also carries some degree of risk with it. It all has to do with the way the contract is structured. Tune in to hear my take.
