Free agent cornerback Brian Poole will be visiting the Jets according to one report.
Source tells me former Falcon CB Brian Poole is flying out to visit the #Jets— Tiffany Blackmon (@tiffblackmon) March 13, 2019
Lost in all of the excitement of the moves the Jets have made is the reality this team currently has zero reliable cornerbacks under contract. That’s a bit of a problem considering the defensive coordinator has a reputation for blitzing a lot.
The Jets are going to have to dip into the free agent market to address this issue, but Poole probably isn’t the place to go.
Poole isn’t much of a cover guy. He has allowed 598 yards or more in all three of his NFL seasons. The Falcons had a chance to retain him on a cheap one year deal because he was a restricted free agent. They decided not to offer him that deal, which allowed Poole to hit the market as an unrestricted free agent.
The Jets might need corners, but I don’t think this is the guy they need.
