Report: Jets Looking to Make Splash Move on Defense

Take it for what you will, Jets fans.

ESPN insider Jeremy Fowler is claiming that after a very active offseason, the Jets are still looking to make a “splash” move.  Fowler says Gang Green would like to add a “center fielder” at safety before the season kicks off.  This coming in an ESPN piece that ranked teams from 1-32.  The Jets came in at 21.

What could change for the better: It seems like New York is still looking for another splash move in the secondary. The Jets were in the mix for several high-cost free agents and signed corner D.J. Reed but could still use one more playmaker. A rangy center fielder at safety would elevate what should be an emerging defense. — Fowler

Any such move would tell us the Jets aren’t very happy with the progress of safety Ashtyn Davis, whose elite athleticism was expected to make him a defender who could cover the entire field.
