At this time of the year it’s impossible to separate fact from fiction. All kinds of rumors get made.

Joe Thuney & Graham Glasgow are obviously atop the #Jets wishlist once the legal tampering period begins Monday. Another name I’d keep an eye on: Carolina’s Greg Van Roten.— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) March 10, 2020
Jets have done their homework on him, I’m told. Makes sense, too. He’s likely in that $8-$10m APY range.
