Jets Trying To Keep Austin Howard Off Market


Back in February, the Jets opened up contract talks with right tackle Austin Howard in hopes of keeping him from becoming a free agent when the market opens on Tuesday afternoon.

They haven’t come to an agreement yet, but they are reportedly still trying to make it happen. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets continue to push for a contract with Howard as he also speaks to other teams that are hoping the Jets aren’t able to secure a signature on the dotted line.
