Jets and Otah are No More

The New York Jets attempt to bolster their offensive line crash landed on Tuesday.  Jeff Otah, formerly and now again with the Carolina Panthers, failed his physical with the Jets thus voiding the trade between the two teams.

The Jets have been looking all over the league for a tackle that can protect well enough in the passing game to allow for Mark Sanchez to have enough time in the pocket for receiver Santonio Holmes to get open down field.  At the same time they are in need of a run blocking tackle to add to the Tim Tebow dimension.  Otah was thought to be the perfect fit, but he seems unable to get healthy for a litany of injuries over the past 3 seasons.
