With the extremely disappointing loss of their best player, Darrelle Revis, the Jets are turning their attention to bringing in some help in the secondary. Could veteran Chris Carr be the answer?
There are not many impact players left on the free agent list, but the Jets know they need to do something.
On Tuesday, the New York Daily News reported that the Jets will bring in veteran Chris Carr for a tryout this week. Carr did play shortly for the Ravens, but it was the year after Rex Ryan left to become the Jets top cat. There is little doubt, though, that Rex reached out to his old club to get information on Carr. Carr played on the Minnesota Vikings last year, but failed to make the final roster to begin the 2012 season.
Kyle Wilson’s job is probably safe, but with Revis gone for the year, the Jets absolutely need to bring in some experience.
They currently are 2-1, and tie with the Buffalo Bills atop the AFC East. With the Patriots below .500, in what seems like two decades, the Jets know they are in a spot they didn’t expect to be in.

The San Francisco 49ers defense was looking like the best in the NFL by leaps-and-bounds, but they looked human against the Minnesota Vikings of all teams.

Remember how the Jets’ chance to make the playoffs was on the conservative offense, good defense, don’t make mistakes, easy schedule model? Yeah, that doesn’t work if you can’t play good defense and without Darrelle Revis, they’re going to have a hard time doing so many of the things they normally do on defense. They also don’t run the ball...
