If at first you trade for a fat guy with bad knees, try, try again.
Hunter was benched yesterday, and they’ll start Austin Howard in that spot Sunday against the Panthers.
But with cuts coming, they’ll be combing through the waiver wire for upgrades.
“We’re always looking for things,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “If we can improve this team, then certainly we’re not going to shut ourselves out of that possibility.
“Right now, I’m thinking that we’re going to be OK. I don’t know exactly what’s out there. We don’t know who’s going to be cut from other teams. . . . I don’t believe you’re going to find somebody right now that can be a starting right tackle ahead of who we have.”
Maybe at this point, the best bet is to get owner Woody Johnson on Twitter so he can hustle something up.
