Jets in Market for a Guard After Bender’s Poor Outing

With Pete Kendall gone, and Jacob Bender having looked like a play toy for a toddler on Saturday vs the Giants, the Jets are reportedly now checking out the market for another guard to play on their O-line.  The New York Daily News is reporting that the Jets are keeping an eye on the Ravens, who may part with either Keydrick Vincent or Brian Rimpf, both of which are guys that can play but right now are on the bench.  The Ravens director of pro personnel, George Kokinis, was at the Jets-Giants game doing a little scouting in case a deal can be made for a guard.  Bender, who was given first shot to replace Kendall, was awful for the most part, allowing a sack and a number of pressures.  The unhappy Kendall was shipped off last week to the Redskins for a draft choice.

  1. THE COACH says:

    Lets look at the facts. Clarke is the best candidate for LG that the Jets have. Not only is he fully recovered from back surgery but he has not played bad at all during the preaseason. OK there was one holding call on the Vikings game but if you looked at the play the NBA referee Donnehy might have made that call to throw the game. Again Clarke was actually one of the highest regarded Guards in the 2004 Draft. He was just flagged for a Back Disorder prior to the draft. Again he started his entire career at Ohio State and won a national championship blocking for Maurice Clarett. It is time to start the Clarke for Guard campaign. He is the best option for the Jets to move the ball.
