The NFL’s “legal tampering” period continued on Tuesday as free agents across the NFL agreed to terms on contracts with new teams.
After a relatively quiet Monday, the Jets added a pair of offensive linemen. Starting left guard Alex Lewis agreed to return to the Jets on a three year contract. Lewis was acquired from Baltimore in a trade last summer and stepped into a starting role after Kelechi Osemele was injured.
The Jets also made a move at the center position agreeing to terms with Denver’s Connor McGovern. After three years of bottom tier center play, the Jets will surely hope that McGovern can bring some degree of stability to the middle of the offensive line. On paper this looks like a big upgrade.
In other AFC East news, Tom Brady announced he is leaving the Patriots. Rumors make it sound like he will be moving to Tampa Bay.
Thanks for listening.
