As any Jets fan is well aware, Gang Green will be looking to invest heavily along the offensive line this off-season and one major target is expected to be Tennessee Titans free agent right tackle Jack Conklin.

Now a report from NFL insider Mike Florio claims that Conklin has already told one team of his intentions to come to New York to block for Sam Darnold and company.

With the free agency tampering window still weeks away, it’s unlikely the Jets and/or Conklin would publicize any future plans.  However, it wouldn’t be beyond the realm of possibility that Conklin’s agent is taking the opportunity to drive up his client’s asking price by having teams believe Conklin is already set on playing in a big market for a team with lots of salary cap space.  Stay tuned, folks.  Let the games begin.

 

***Update***

In a tweet addressing the rumor above, Adam Schefter says that Conklin to the Jets isn’t a sure thing.

Conklin is in fact expecting to listen to many suitors.
