Good morning, GGN! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Now that the NFL Draft is complete, it’s time to think about what remaining free agents the Jets should target prior to this season. Despite grabbing a lot of depth for the secondary in the draft, that position is still quite barren of playmakers. There’s a chance the Jets may stick with what they have, but a better route may be acquiring veteran players who can still make a difference on the field. Cornerbacks like Steve Nelson and Richard Sherman are still both available on the market, and either could make an impact on this Jets defense; albeit in different ways. Sherman can provide great leadership in a system he’s familiar with, while still playing at a great level. Nelson on the other hand is in his prime and played excellent when with the Pittsburgh Steelers the past two years. Both could be options the team pursues as we head towards the start of the season. With that, here are your links to the Jets today.
