According to the New York Daily News, via Pro Football Talk, the New York Jets have released nose tackle Kris Jenkins.
If the Bills were smart they get on the phone right now and go after Jenkins.
Jenkins was a dominant force for the Jets when he was healthy for the team, but unfortunately he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament injury two straight years. Still that shouldn’t force him from returning to form.
In most instances two ACL injuries are career ending as the player loses a considerable amount of speed. However, the nose tackle position is a different case as it is more about power.
Power is the main element, because nose tackles usually have to face double teams. That means they have to have a considerable amount of leg strength to not get pushed around by the double team. It is an added bonus if the player can get some penetration.
If the Bills were to sign Jenkins it would allow the Bills to go in different directions with the third overall pick.
