Jets going really hard after … Drew Stanton

The Jets have been willing to make big free agent splashes under G.M. Mike Tannenbaum. They’re not doing that this year.

Their top target looks to be free agent quarterback Drew Stanton. The Jets lost Chad Henne to the Jaguars, and they’re leafing through the likes of Chaz Schilens on the receiver market.

Per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the Jets phoned Stanton just minutes after free agency opened Tuesday afternoon. They’ve been courting him ever since.

Birkett would be “surprised” if Stanton didn’t sign with the Jets.

We’d be surprised if he made an impact there.
