Jets need to make sure they’re not being used Dan Leberfeld

The Jets have to make sure the interest is pure.

It’s no secret the Jets are interested in free agent QB Kirk Cousins, as they should be.

But they need to make sure he’s legitimately interested in them.

And that his agent isn’t just using the Jets, who have a ton of cap space, to drive the price up with other suitors.

The agent seems to have a lot of surrogates in the media.

The Jets need to do their due diligence and make sure the agent, and his surrogates, aren’t just using them as a pawn.

Nobody likes being used.
