Jets taking a look at Stephen Peterman

On the lookout for bargain line help, the Jets will meet with former Lions guard Stephen Peterman Monday, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Peterman started every game the last three years for the Lions, who shook up their offensive line this offseason.

But the Jets need the help, after letting starters Matt Slauson and Brandon Moore walk into free agency.

The 31-year-old Peterman would likely replace Moore at right guard if he signs.

    Jets need to make sure they have found a suitable replacement for this season’s episode of Buttfumble II. Brandon Moore will be hard to be replaced.

    Good luck Stephen. Old high school team mate of mine. I hope he finds a home.

    Especially if you think this guys the answer. From a Lions fan… false starts and after-the-whistle penalties come with a Steven Peterman signing.

    Things must be dire when you start signing ex-Lion offensive linemen.

    Not just any ex-Lion O-lineman, but the worst one out of the bunch last year.

    Good luck Jets. You won’t get any run blocking from him that’s for sure!

    As a REALISTIC Lions fan, Peterman was solid over the past couple years, especially last year. He might have had a few more penalties than the average lineman, but it wasn’t out of hand. He was solid in pass blocking and run blocking, but not spectacular at either. Combine that with the fact that he’s 31, and he could be a decent bargain ( just like the article states) for a team in desperate need of 0-line help, but he’ll probably only be worth a 1-2 year deal.

    Besides, let’s be honest…..the Jets are going to run the ball successfully this year whether they sign Peterman or not!

    Doh! I meant to say that the Jets are NOT going to run the ball successfully this year whether they sign Peterman or not.

    As a Lions fan, I said good riddance when Peterman left. He had a mediocre year last season, which is to say it was the best he ever played. If he returns to his usual level of suckitude, which seems likely, he probably won’t be a Jet for long.
