Jets take a look at Jake Scott


The Jets continue to look around for bargains, and have brought in journeyman offensive lineman Jake Scott for a visit.

According to Aaron Wilson of, Scott visited Thursday but didn’t sign.

The former Colts fifth-rounder has also played for the Eagles and Titans. He started seven games at guard for the Eagles after joining the team in midseason last year.

The 31-year-old is a solid piece, but the Jets let their starting guards (Matt Slauson and Brandon Moore) walk into free agency, so they’re looking for help.

  1. Sanchez had an awful season with Ferguson, Slauson, Moore and Mangold protecting him. With Slauson and Moore being replaced with worse replacements and Keller being gone (albeit that he barely appeared in 2012) can you imagine how terrible he’ll be for 3 snaps before they bench him for life?

  2. The Jets are looking for a suitable replacements for the upcoming sequel this fall called Buttfumble 2.

  3. The Jets QB’s all have issues, but maybe the problem is really the O-line. Maybe if Sanchez feels a little more comfortable in the pocket we’ll see a difference? Probably not.

  4. Sanchez would suck if he had the famous seven blocks of granite blocking for him and jerry rice as his primary wide receiver.

  5. As a Jets fan, I could not be more depressed for a season that has not even seen any OTA’s yet. Jets management have really messed up so badly that it makes you yearn for Leon Hess and Rich Kotite. We are an embarrassment in a division that hosts the elite (New England) and a much improved Dolphins team. Though an honor to play in the NFL, I am sure that our players have little pride playing for such an organization. I believe that Rex will be gone after this season for a team that will probably be 4-12 or 3-13. Idzik better shoot for a big name to guide this sinking ship…Oh yeah…the fact that there is not a snowball’s chance in hell that we could get to the Super Bowl that is being played in our yard.

  6. Sanchez is the hub of this crazy wheel the front office created.

    Maybe if Sanchez doesn’t host a “Jets West” this spring, it’ll be better?
    That surely didn’t help except for visits to Burger In N’ Out.

    It would help, but Sanchez had one of the best offensive lines in the league for the 09-10 seasons, and he was still just mediocre. If anything, some talent in the skill positions would go a lot farther but even then I wouldn’t expect much from him.

  8. Moore and Slauson were both terrible this season…Sanchez won 4 playoff games on the road his first 2 years because the Jets had a running game.
    Why do you think no one has signed these 2? the Jets could have have signed either 1 by now, but have no interest in players with no future.
    Howard will be back at RT with ferguson and Mangold. Any change at guard will be a good thing. Willie Colon is a great run blocker and there are several strong G’s in the draft. Ducasse will also get a shot.
    Healthy Holmes with Kurley and a 2nd year Stephen Hill will provide stability. Jets will compete, worry about your own teams.
