Rich Cimini of the New York Daily News recently reported that the Jets are “trying” to re-sign tight end Ben Hartsock.
Per a league souce, it is believed that Hartsock and the Jets have agreed to terms.
The Jets had been kicking around the possibility of pursuing tight end John Paul Foschi, a restricted free agent whom the Bengals opted not to restrict with any of the various available tender offers.
Hartsock, a six-year veteran, joined the Jets in 2009. He appeared in every regular-season game starting seven. He also started in the wild-card win over Cincinnati, and in the AFC title game.
