The Jets are in the midst of a playoff chase and they’re still trying to figure out how to keep their season alive.
We’ve been told the Jets’ offensive line needs to be stronger, a move that might not be enough to keep them competitive.
That’s why, for now, the Jets have been looking at a lot of options for improving their offensive line.
One name that has been discussed the most is Jovan Belcher.
The former Arizona Cardinals guard is the latest high-profile guard to come out and say he’d be willing to sign with the Jets.
Belcher, 29, has spent the past five seasons in the NFL, but he hasn’t had a chance to play in a full season.
The Jets have shown interest in him since the season started, but they’ve yet to make a final decision.

Belchcher has played for the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles.
He’s averaged 1.5 sacks per season in his career, but only one of those seasons saw him lead the league in sacks (2012).
He’s not an elite pass-rusher, but the Jets could use more help at the position.
The Jets are currently on pace for just one playoff win, and that win is likely coming against a New England Patriots team that hasn’t won a game since Week 6.
The Patriots are looking to build on a 2-1 start to the season, and if the Jets want to stay in the hunt, they need to improve their pass-rush.
