Jets GM Joe Douglas has quite the task in front of him as he looks to re-build his offensive line that can use at least 3 new starters after an abysmal performance in 2019. According to NFL insider Chad Forbes, the Jets already have one name in their crosshairs.
#Jets 💯 in on #Titans Jack Conklin. 26 Yrs Old. If not tagged, will be Jets biggest pursuit outside resigning their own FAs. A deal with Brian Poole during exclusivity period would pave way for Conklin signing… that’s how the business works!

Tennessee Titans free agent right tackle Jack Conklin is a rare instance in which an upper echelon tackle in his prime could hit the open market. By adding a player such as Conklin, the Jets would be giving quarterback Sam Darnold an improved pocket who will also open up more holes in the running game than the Jets have had since the departure of Damien Woody.
