The Jets are looking for a safety. And they think they’ve found one.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets have made an offer to veteran Reggie Nelson.
Nelson’s agent, Hadley Englehard, told Mehta that Nelson will consider the offer and make a decision with 24 hours.
Nelson, a first-round pick in 2007, was traded to the Bengals by the Jaguars in 2010.
The Jets are expected to host LaRan Landry on Sunday. Theoretically, the Jets could sign both, putting Landry at strong safety and Nelson at free.
Or, given his size lately, Landry could play nose tackle.
