On Monday, Jets HC Robert Saleh confirmed to reporters that they are “for sure” exploring the possibility of signing free agent C Ben Jones, per Zack Rosenblatt.
This is the first reported interest in him since the free agent market officially opened.
Jones, 33, is a former fourth-round pick of the Texans back in 2012. He played out the final year of his rookie contract before agreeing to a four-year, $17.5 million contract that included $7.5 million guaranteed with the Titans for the 2016 season.
Jones was entering the final year of his deal when he agreed to a two-year, $13.5 million extension in 2019. The Titans re-signed him to a two-year, $14 million contract last offseason and was set to earn a base salary of $5 million in 2023.
The Titans opted to release Jones this offseason.
In 2022, Jones appeared in 12 games for the Titans, starting all of them at center.
