High Profile O-Line Coach Says Van Roten is “Liability”

This could make for some awkward conversations in the Jets locker room in the coming weeks.

Duke Manyweather, the offensive line guru who works with countless NFL linemen during the offseason, including Jets left tackle Mekhi Becton has offered a less-than-flattering assessment of jets right guard Greg Van Roten.

Following the Jets atrocious showing in their 26-0 loss to the Denver Broncos, Manyweather took to twitter to say that despite his best efforts to stay positive, the Jets “have to upgrade at RG!” and that “62 is a liability” with 62 of course being Van Roten.

Last season didn’t get off to a much better start for Van Roten but he managed to hang on to his job as he turned things around after the first quarter of the season.  This year, with Dan Feeney on board and Isaiah Williams recently earning a spot on the game day roster, could an effort to replace Van Roten be far off?
