It took the Jets a long, long time to find a competent right tackle. Now that they have one, he could be walking away.
Per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets have been unable to work out a deal with Howard. He’ll be hitting the market at 4:00 p.m. ET.
Mehta reports that other teams already have reached out to Howard. Which begs the question — why didn’t they do it on Saturday?
Howard, who arrived as a street free agent in 2011, started 16 games each of the last two seasons.
