Kelvin Beachum, Chandler Catanzaro joining the Jets

The Jets opted not to pick up Ryan Clady’s option for the 2017 season around the same time that the Jaguars passed on Kelvin Beachum’s option and now Beachum will be replacing Clady at left tackle for the Jets.

Beachum made the announcement on social media on Friday night without any mention of terms.

Beachum signed with the Jaguars before last season and started 15 games for them before they opted to pass on his option in favor of a trade for Branden Albert. Beachum spent the first four years of his career with the Steelers and started 39 games for them, which led to some interest from the Jets in free agency before the two sides moved in different directions.

The Jets haven’t made an announcement of their own regarding Beachum, but they did announce another signing. They have added former Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro, who may see competition from another kicker over the course of the offseason as the Jets try to replace the released Nick Folk.

    Dolphins special team ace Walt Aiken–who got a safety when Catanzaro blew a FG week 14 against the Cards–will LOVE this move. Twice!

    Good for the Jets…extra point attempts won’t be a priority this year though.

    Woah look out. The jets are just tearing it up in the free agent market. I’m excited.
    In other news, The patriots just traded for brandon cooks.

    Solid LT pickup – trust the process.

    Obviously not signed for the PAT, Chandler will be the leading kicker in the league by far. Oh wait, you have to move the ball to Field Goal range first?

    As a Cardinals season ticket holder I’ll let you know about Cat man. He can’t handle pressure kicks at all. 53 yard kick that means nothing…it’s good. 7 yard kick to win the game ….Way right. He can’t make PATs either…every TD we knew it was 50/50 if he was going to make it.

    Patriots fans can hate all they want.. But I think these moves we’re not bad at all it’s a step in the right direction the jets are in rebuild mode right now so you can’t expect a lot out of them right now it’s going to be a rough next 2 years but trust me when I tell you we will get it right and we will be busting the Patriots ass once again
