The Jets ticked off some of the biggest boxes on their offseason to-do list by signing three cornerbacks and a safety after trading for wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
That’s left them free to move down the list to some of their smaller needs. Depth on the offensive line is one of those things, as evidenced by Wednesday’s visit from James Brewer and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press‘s report that tackle Corey Hilliard will also meet with the team.
Hilliard has spent the last six years with the Lions, although injuries have kept him from making much of an impression on the field. Hilliard played the season opener last season before a foot injury ended his season and a knee injury in 2013 kept him from holding onto the right tackle job in Detroit.
If Hilliard does land with the Jets, he’ll likely be a swing tackle behind D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Breno Giacomini in 2015.
