New York Jets Lost Out On Two More Possible Free Agents

Mark J. Rebilas-USA Today Sports

Two players who were reportedly on the radar for the New York Jets to sign have found new homes today; and they weren’t New York.

Kevin Kolb, ex-quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals, will now be a signal caller for the division rival Buffalo Bills.

Offensive guard Matt Slauson agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears earlier today as well. Slauson would have been a re-signing, but the Jets failed to lure him back to the gang green. Slauson marks the sixth starter from last season that the Jets lost during free agency.

Now, where do the Jets go from here at these two positions?

At quarterback, the depth chart already looks a little full, with Mark Sanchez, Greg McElroy, Tim Tebow, and David Garrard. If they do decide to go out and get another quarterback, Matt Flynn is still available on the trading block, although reports are surfacing that the Oakland Raiders might bid heavily on him. If that is the case, they would release Carson Palmer, which would make him available, but it’s hard to believe that Palmer would want to come to New York.

On the offensive guard side, the Jets brought in Willie Colon to fill in for Brandon Moore, who the Jets lost out on in free agency as well. Now they are going to have to find someone to fill in for Slauson. The Jets reportedly held a tryout for guard Jake Scott, but very little has been said after.

Whatever the case may be, the free agent market is appearing thin, and the Jets are losing out on more free agents than they are acquiring, which is not good for the gang green.

Brandon Marshall Tells Rich Eisen He Hasn't Spoken To Jay Cutler

During a recent appearance on ' The Rich Eisen Show', former Chicago Bears and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was asked about his relationship with his old quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall, who has zero chill, replied that he had not spoken to Cutler in "two years." Naturally, Eisen was shocked and mentioned that they were teammates just a season ago. Marshall essentially confirmed that they were not talking off the field during his last year in Chicago, but ultimately wished Cutler well.
